Beltane☀️ What to Know + How to Celebrate

How to Celebrate Beltane


  1. Learn more about "Beltane" as a holiday.Beltane is all about celebrating the uniting of the Lord and Lady, so it covers things like sex, love, passion, fertility, and romance.
  2. Remember the significance of certain things, such as fire and flowers.Fire is representative of love and passion, so light candles. Flowers contain the fertilizing pollen of the plant, and so many Wiccans enjoy braiding flowers in to their hair, wearing flower wreaths, using them in recipes and using them as decoration.
  3. Light a bonfire from nine sacred woods:Rowan or sandalwood, applewood, dogwood, poplar wood, juniper, cedar, pine, holly and oak or elder. Invite friends and play music, roast things like nuts on the fire or perform a ritual if you desire.
  4. Burn some incense made of these woods to get the scent of an open campfire if you can't get the real thing.Some Wiccans find this a good time to relax and meditate.
  5. Eat oat and barley cakes, the traditional Celtic Beltane treats.Other treats include lavender lemonade, cinnamon scones, sun tea, rose flavoured things and anything with aphrodisiac properties.
  6. Do a ritual for the uniting of the Lord and Lady.This can be as simple and symbolic or as dramatized as you wish.
  7. Do some maypole dancing or other Wiccan dancing to get in to the spirit.
  8. Consider that Beltane is often considered a time when "the veil" between the living and the spirit world is thinnest.Use this to your advantage and honour passed ancestors. You could also use this as a time to practice spiritual communication.

  • Question
    Any easier suggesions to celebrate for a child that are not dangerous?
    Community Answer
    You can simply give some offerings to the God and Goddess, make a gratitude list or list of wishes, and if you choose to marry one day, then plan what you want in a partner. Get a piece of plant (preferably roses or bay leaves) and put them under your pillow. Pray for a dream about your future romantic life.
  • Question
    Among the nine woods for the bonfire you list "elder." Isn't that the tree most sacred to the Lady/Goddess as stated in the Wiccan Rede? I would think that should not be burned.
    Community Answer
    All trees are sacred and shouldn't be burned, except for when you do bonfires. But no, according to the Wiccan Rede, the oak tree is the most important, not the elder. I am not saying the elder tree is of no importance, though.

    How can a kid celebrate when their family does not believe in the same things?

    I usually just perform a small ritual in my room or in the backyard. A good idea to get the whole family involved is by planting trees or going on a hike to pick up trash. It's more important to recognize the holiday's values, rather than the celebrations themselves.

    How can I do the ritual for the uniting of the Lord and Lady?
    Community Answer
    Oftentimes this is done by putting the athame (the sacred knife) into the chalice (the sacred cup).
