The turning of the Wheel and the arrival of Beltaine
Current mood: excited

You know, I celebrate the 8 Sabbats - the turning points on the Wheel. We, as modern Pagans and Witches, have specific days that we observe the Sabbats whether by calendar or astrological event. Even though I do that too, I personally find it much more magical to KNOW the season and its special days by KNOWING the environment around me.
Today I woke up and got myself ready to head out to the Post Office. When I opened the door, something magical happened.
There was a nip in the air (46* F). Our hilly neighborhood was filled will rolling fog clouds. One minute you can't see the other side of the street, the next, the veil was was lifted. The full kiss of Spring was in the air despite the chill. I just stood for a few minutes and stared at our plum tree and lilac tree. They were both in the beginning of budding and blooming. That's when it hit me.
TODAY was Beltaine! Happy Beltaine everyone!
