To all my beautiful, magical, and lovely beings out in the world...
Love and light,
Festival of Expectation. Time of the lovers.
Honoring sacred sexual union. Fertility and fire rites. Beginning of the light part of the year. It's a time to welcome the abundance of the fertile earth. It's the time when the earth mother opens up to the fertility god. Lots of festivals (i.e. the lighting of bonfires and the winding of the May Pole) take place at this time.
