Beltane Rites and Rituals for a Hedgewitch

This is another traditional time when the veils between the worlds are thin, and we can encounter beings from the Otherworld easily as we slip between the worlds.

It is traditionally a time to honour the Fair Folk, as well as the fertility of the land in hopes of great abundance in the autumn.

We can work with the Fair Folk to ensure that our endeavours are successful.

In your liminal place, call to the Fair Folk, to allow you to communicate with all those who are in tune with your intention.

Your Lowerworld guides may appear, as well as others who can impart wisdom and information on the work that you are doing.

It is a good time to allow the awen, the inspiration to flow and to open yourself to new possibilities.

The flowers of hawthorn (a known Faery Tree) are out, and you can take a sprig and wear it upon your person (with the tree’s and the Fair Folk’s permission first) as you weave your magic in the world. Be open, but also beware.

You must decide for yourself what information you will use, and whether it is for the benefit of the whole.

Not all of the Fair Folk have your best interests at heart, for they are creatures of nature with their own agenda.

This is a good time of year to communicate with them and learn more of their work, how you can help them and vice versa to bring about harmony in all the worlds.

Ask them what they would like to see happen in your world, and tell them likewise what you would like to achieve.

You might just find the Fair Folk comply.
