Traditionally Celebrated May 1
Exact Astrological Point May 5
Beltane is the cross-quarter Wheel of the Year point following Spring Equinox. Also known as May Day, it marks the starting point of the turn toward summer. The flowers are in full bloom, and the days are definitely longer. Beltane, halfway around the Wheel from Samhain, celebrates the light life-giving portion of the cycle, while Samhain represents the dark time of year, and the dying away portion of the cycle. At both of these windows, the veil between the worlds is thin, so stay open for magical messages from the spirit realm.
