Beltane Blessings



Beltane is a time of new beginnings and fresh ideas, and it's the best time of year to reset and realign. A vibrant energy is in the air, a whisper of blooming life and deep, potent magic.


The word Beltane is derived from Gaelic and translates to "bright fire." It is a fire festival, symbolic of the growing power of the sun, usually celebrated around May 1. We can manifest with ease at Beltane by aligning with the powerful creative force of Mother Nature. She is waking up and beginning a new cycle of creation. We are deeply connected to the cycles of nature, even in our modern world.


If you are a busy Mom like me, finding the time for celebration can be challenging! I get it! This year, I am making time for a ten-minute Beltane Ritual that helps me reset and realign to the season's energy. All you need is ten minutes, and you can tap into the powerful energy of the season using materials you already have on hand:


Ten-Minute Beltane Ritual and Spell Jar

You will need:

  • 10 minutes alone.

  • A small jar with a lid.

  • A candle.

  • A freshly sprouted blade of grass, flowers from your yard, or any seed. You can use anything – even a seed from a fruit from your kitchen – what matters is that it's a symbol of new beginnings and abundance. You can add anything that intuitively feels right to symbolize your new beginnings.

  • A crystal or stone for grounding the energy.

  • Paper and a pen.

The Ritual

  1. Gather your items and go to a space where you can be undisturbed, whether in a cozy corner of your home or a secluded natural spot.

  2. Take a few moments to ground yourself and connect with your breath. Feel the Earth beneath you, supporting you with its steady presence.

  3. Light the candle to symbolize the spark of creativity within you. As the flame dances before you, envision it igniting the fire of inspiration in your soul. Feel its warmth spreading throughout your being, infusing you with passion and vitality.

  4. Reflect on what you wish to cultivate and manifest in your life now. When you're ready, write it down. Trust in the power of your intentions to manifest, knowing that you are a co-creator of your reality.

  5. Fill the jar with the items of your choice. Fold the paper and add it to the jar, putting the lid on to seal your intention.

  6. Take a moment to express gratitude for the blessings in your life, big and small. Offer thanks to the Earth, the sun, and the elements for their support and nourishment.

  7. Next, consider what you would like to let go of now. Write down what you would like to release. If you are somewhere that you can safely burn this paper, do so, or you can rip it up into tiny pieces and throw it away.

  8. When you feel ready, bring your ritual to a close by extinguishing the candle. Take a few deep breaths to center yourself, knowing that you carry the magic of Beltane within you wherever you go.

  9. Place the jar somewhere where it won't be disturbed until the Summer Solstice when you can dispose of the contents by burying or composting them.


Some other easy ways to celebrate Beltane:

Get outside and do some yard work.

Plan a garden.

Plant some seeds.

Have a bonfire.

Collect wildflowers for a bouquet or wreath.

Set up a Beltane altar.

Light a candle.

Look to nature for signs all around you. The symbols are in the new buds on the trees, the birdsong in the air, and the longer days of light. The world is waking up and getting busy! The vibrations of spring always feel like new beginnings!

Take a moment to appreciate the natural world's beauty and abundance, recognizing your innate connection to it.


May you walk with confidence and purpose, knowing that you have the power to shape your reality and manifest your dreams. Happy Beltane. May your creative fires burn brightly, now and always!


Live your Magickal Life!
