Do you know we are all on fire? Life is literally a fire burning in our bodies. Our biology magically takes in energy in tiny increments so we don’t ignite. Still, it’s a wonder more of us don’t just spontaneously burst into flames! Beltane is a traditional time to renew, reawaken our fire—inner fire, hearth fire, community fire, sexual and fertility fire of people, animals, plants, the land.
What about when there’s way too much fire everywhere: in wars, in forests, in collapsed nuclear reactors, even freak fires in the arctic? What about depression—not enough creative fire, soul fire, wemoon fire, to bring balance and healing to offset the devastation? No way to get there from here? Today is our holy moment to quantum jump over the impossible and make love to the Possible. (If your head can’t do it, let your heart try.) Newborns of the body or imagination conceived on Beltane are “Merry Begots,” full of enough aliveness, love, joy, humor to confound the toughest logic and direst doomsday predictions.

The tradition of gift giving at Winter Solstice arose to help keep our hearts' fires burning through the long, cold winter. This year, gift your mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, classmate, lover, co-worker, wife, friend, babysitter and dog walker with We'Moon, so they can curl up by the heart-fire with treasures that last through the seasons.

"This day of perfect equilibrium between day and night is a moment to pause, reflect on what needs attending as we cross the threshold to the waning of the year. We turn inward, measure the mood of trees on the mountain, as roots deepen and the leaves begin their litanies of surrender . . . We need to go to earth, sink our own roots deep, muse and dream. What settles deeply now, and arises after winter's austerities, will shape the newborn spring world"
