Brief Meaning of Beltane

Spiritual Meaning & Common Celebrations

A fire festival amid the verdant energies of Spring, Beltane marks the halfway point between the Vernal Equinox and the Summer Solstice. You might already be familiar with Beltane celebrations through modern May Day customs, like dancing around Maypoles with ribbons, making flower crowns, or lighting bonfires!

A time to celebrate both the fertile energy of Spring and forthcoming abundance of Summer, Beltane is filled with flowers, fire, and flirting. Love, lust, celebration, abundance, and well being are just some of Beltane’s associated meanings. For some, observing the day might be about celebrating life through sensuality, fun and calling forth abundance. For others, celebrating Beltane might focus more on health, casting away illness, and reflecting on the cycle of life. 

So whether you are making flower crowns under the Spring Sun, weaving ribbons for abundance magic, or slinging and sipping on delicious, juicy Beltane drinks to stir your inner fire — go outside and celebrate the luscious verdant life around you, enjoy luxurious earthly delights, and invigorate your wild side.

And of course, I’m of the stance that celebrating Beltane can certainly be complimented with a magical drink recipe! So, I have both cocktail and mocktail (nonalcoholic) Beltane recipes everyone can cheers to life with!
