Saturday April 26th, 2014 Columbia Protogrove held their public Beltane ritual. Thirty-two attendees came to make offerings as a community as well as dance the maypole. Lily stepped up to co-lead this ritual. She was fantastic; her beautiful singing voice echoed throughout the Grove. Renee, our warrior, invited Lugh with strong Ale! Our two newest members: Jasper and Jessamina, jumped into ritual with both feet. Jessamina invited our Lady of inspiration Brigid with eloquence and grace. Jasper invited our local Earth Mother Columbia with reverence and veneration.
Jaymi, our seer asked what the Kindreds wish to depart to us from this time to the Summer Solstice.
She drew the following cards from The Gaian Tarot:
Shining Ones gave us Bindweed (aka The Devil),
the Ancestors gave us Awakening (aka Judgement),
and the Nature Spirits gave us The Star.
We look forward to hosting the Hellenic Summer Solstice on June 22, 2014 at 1:30 pm at WHUUF. We hope to see you all there.
