Phallic Frolicking – Beltane Glastonbury

Phallic Frolicking Awakens Fertility

– Just a bit of fun –

Summer is a coming, and the winter’s gone away. Oh!

The landscape is set to explode with colour and exuberance. The earth is full of fecundity and life.

Standing proud and prominent on village greens across the land, huge erections will await the spiral dance of life. Some people may even dare to touch the potent Maypoles!

Breathless maidens anticipate the arrival of magical dew! Rushing out on Mayday morn, beautiful young maidens will wash their bodies and faces with the potent dawn elixir. This is said to perpetuate their eternal beauty. Remaining forever young.

Men who join them will find that washing their hands in the potent liquid will make their fingers more nimble. The ladies may find comfort in the fact that the men’s knot tying skills will improve.

Fire warnings have been issued this season; Do not allow anyone to take fire from your home on Beltane eve, or on Mayday because it may give them power over you and your family. Is this mere suspicion?

Many people find it is wise to keep your hearth at home. Indeed, fairies and nature spirits will be especially active at this time.

Fires of passion will roar!

It’s anticipated that wild fires will kindle love between frisky couples. Jumping the fire together with the hope that the fires of Bel will keep their love aflame. Be aware who you jump with.

Last year as the tide turned to Beltane, one local resident commented ‘In all my years, I have not come across naked orgies taking place in our woodlands!’ So now we ask ourselves …. Are naked orgies immanent? or will frisky residents be disappointed?

People do indeed go out into the woodlands to enjoy the warm nights and experience the rhythms of nature. It was recently discovered that ‘Going A-Maying’ means staying out all night to gather flowering hawthorn and make love in the woods! This wild union is said to be a ‘greenwood marriage’ celebrated among couples.

It is this time of year that the Earth Goddess, the May Queen is re-united with her consort, the Green Man. If you are lucky, you may just spy them cavorting in the undergrowth. The Goddess makes herself ready. Her dark moist earth awaiting the planting of the fertile seed of the King of Summer. Even seemingly innocent Morris Dancers will take to the streets to honour the season and brandish their poles in the spirit of awakening passion.

The rising sun will have a special potency; as green shoots emerge, the leaves unfurl, and the blossom shouts its praise! The beauty of a summer’s day will call us all to the green places. Let’s embrace that passion and revel in the light and life of Summer!

      Bright Beltane Blessings!
