The Full Moon in Taurus is a time of sensual, earthy abundance of creation and the gifts we receive from Mother Earth, polarised by Scorpio and the spiritual sight to see the beauty and love in creation.
The Taurus Full Moon coupled with the fertility of Beltane is the perfect time to celebrate who we are. On this night, we will be working the energy of Pan and the Spring Maiden, celebrating the union of the Goddess and the Horned God, and the fertility in all things.
To celebrate the fruitful earth in a sacred manner is to constantly renew the ancient contract between human beings and the Divine. We too can feel this great turning of the Wheel of the Year in our own bodies, hearts, and minds, if we are willing to open up to the creative forces that flow through us, and learn to live in harmony and balance with each other and with the Earth. The wisdom of the Wheel of the Year can liberate us from our modern linear model of time, reminding us that death yields to life repeatedly.
By the power of the Dragons may this circle be blessed cleansed and sanctified (3 times)
Air awakens us
Fire transforms us
Water shifts us
Earth grounds us
We call Thee, vibrant Goddess of youth and sensuality; Lady of Spring, exuberant Earth Maiden, dancing in joyous abandon with the goat-footed God across hillside and field in vivacious hues of brightness, exuding the wondrous essence of waving wildflowers.
We beseech Thee to be here among us as we revel in Beltane creative abandon beneath the swirling streamers of the phallic staff, dancing by the light of the balefire's glow!
Vibrant Goddess of youth and sensuality; be pleased within this Circle to remain, as we celebrate Spring and the beginning of Thy reign! Blessed Be! So mote it be.
Holy Pan of the shepherds' shrine, Goat-footed God, Faunus of the forest glades, we beseech Thee to be here among us as we revel in Beltane abandon beneath the swirling streamers of Thy phallic staff, dancing by the light of the balefire's glow!
Sovereign Satyr Lord, be pleased within this Circle to remain, as we celebrate Spring and the beginning of Thy reign! Blessed Be! So mote it be.
Meditation on Pan
Oh vibrant Goddess of youth and sensuality;
Holy Pan of the shepherds' shrine,
Ghob Elemental Ruler of Earth
Nichsa Elemental Ruler of Water
Djin Elemental Ruler of Fire
Paralda Elemental Ruler of Air
May this circle be open but unbroken
