    Inspirational Words for Newbies to Veterans

    A Permaculture quote from David Holmgren. Traditional agriculture was labour intensive, industrial agriculture is energy intensive, and permaculture-designed systems are information and design intensive.

    A street near you?

    MS: that's one advantage. The other is the absence of trackers. It's privacy orientated. SH: precisely.

    Sounds like a gang of us leaving an Oban pub on a Saturday night at closing time.

    Dunno. Maybe "Acropolis Avenue", or just "Parthenon Marbles"

    If you could name a new street near you, what would you call it? 😁

    beltane ritual dont know where to start

    I now have a mental image of Google as a sort of virtual Getafix...
  15. Beltane is usually seen as a fertility festival and is said to be one of the Great Sabbats (the other is Samhain or Walpurgis Night). In my tradition, generally speaking, we do not celebrate Beltane until the Hawthorn blossoms - as Moonsmith has said above. It is also a fire festival and for many involves a bonfire or dish/pit which some jump over - others have two fires and drive their cows between 😀😆 Whatever you do, it is a joyful festival full of the anticipation of Spring, growing, expansive and so on. Some folk go out to meet the dawn - on beach or hill or circle of stones ....

    Well done. Enjoy it. Re. The weather. Don’t forget that Beltane (and the other Fire Festivals) aren’t quite like the Sun Festivals, the solstices and equinoxes, which happen on a particular date. Fire festivals are, for many of us, seasonal. At Beltane, we wait for the May (Hawthorne) blossom rather than the First of May but you do whatever you will. (This gives you a couple of weeks of wiggle room while the May comes into full bloom.) It can occasionally surprise you and arrive early but hasn’t for the last few years around here. All the best, Pat

    Inspirational Words for Newbies to Veterans

    'And Joy is Everywhere; It is in the Earth's green covering of grass; In the blue serenity of the Sky; In the reckless exuberance of Spring; In the severe abstinence of grey Winter; In the Living flesh that animates our bodily frame; In the perfect poise of the Human figure, noble and upright; In Living; In the exercise of all our powers; In the acquisition of Knowledge; in fighting evils... Joy is there Everywhere.' Ravindranath Tagore

    Entirely up to you, as those above have indicated. It is likely I will do nothing - as is up to me...!

    Mental Health/ Pagan/ Opinions

    Hello Straw berry blonde, Firstly, you are brave in your honesty to tell of your personal background. I believe that any god or goddess being pagan or divine will love you for who you are not what you are and if someone does have a form of illness than that does not define you. Everyone has it in their DSM. We all have potential illness or the link to anything, be it a mental thing or Adhd or whatever, the most important thing is to accept every part of your being. I think empathy is the key word to paganism though I have seen cases of certain groups enlightening only themselves. true div

    One thing that Beltane entails ia having a fire and a good knees up 😁 My advice as to doing something more formal, well the energies of Spring have come of age so try speaking out to them in any way that feels good and from your heart.

    You are the world’s leading expert on The Wolf Moonism. Don’t worry about what the rest of us do. Just go to wherever you think speaks to you about the Beltane message. That message is just for you. It isn’t the same one that I or anyone else receives. Sit or stand under a tree, in the middle of a grassy patch, on a tarmac car park if that is all that’s available. Wherever you feel that the season is talking to you. Then: Listen. Quiet your mind and let thoughts and impressions arrive. After you’ve listened and if you want to say something then say it. If

  24. May your paganism help you to gain some strength and balance amidst the issues that you describe, Wolfmoon.
  25. All the best. When you say you are going to get help - that seems an excellent idea.
  26. WM No advice. No judgement. Just a (socially distanced) virtual hug.
