My altar setup with my new drum at the bottom. Can’t wait to use it during this ceremony. Each elemental has a correspondence and crystal. My little moon cake and ritual drink. I made my wand from an Ash tree and it has four crystals embedded in it (sorry this pic does not show it. My list of what I want to draw into my life on a 3 x 5 index card, and my BOS.
Better picture of my wand.
This is the first time I used a drum for New Moon ritual. It added so much energy to the ceremony – John Lundy did a really great job making it to my specifications. The tone is excellent, as good as a larger drum. Loving it.
A poem for Beltane
By Terry Moore
Maypole – the symbol of spring, the warmth of the sun – flowers it will bring
Dancers sway and weave, Bringing renewal and fertility it’s believed
Festivals with May Queen and King, Representing the God and Goddess and the blessings they bring
Beltane fires with flames so high, The winter season has begun to die
As the Maypole signifies spring, Celebrate all the beauty this season brings
