Beltane (or Beltain) means bright fire, and it’s usually a time when sacred fires or candles are lit in celebration and with the intention to bring healing and fertility. Blessings are offered and purifying native woods or herbs are burnt.

I caught this pic of a dragon fire spirit in our Beltane fire, his head bowing (to the left) and his eye looking this way. Fire dragon signifies transformation, courage and overcoming obstacles. Many say dragon appears to help you find what it is you seek – what a gift at this high-energy period of the year!
