Beltane, and its counterpart Samhain, divide the year into its two primary seasons, winter (Dark Part) and summer (Light Part). As Samhain is about honouring the dead, Beltane, its opposite, is about honouring life. It is the time when the sun is fully released and able to rule over summer and life once again.
Beltane is brimming with the first stirring of the energies at work in nature. It is a time of ripeness and fertility. Also known as May Eve, May Day, and Walpurgis Night, it celebrates the height of Spring and the flowering of life. The Goddess manifests as the May Queen and Flora. The God emerges as the May King and Jack in the Green. The Maypole represents their unity, the pole itself symbolic of the God and the ribbons that encompass it, the womb of the Goddess.
