Beltaine – “The Fire Tends to All”

Druid Craft Tarot Ace of Wands

Beltaine:  “The Fire Tends to All”

When the topic for this blog-hop round was announced, the Ace of Wands from the Druid Craft Tarot immediately sprang to mind.

“Here, the wand is offered to us from the heart of the sun – the source of creative fire, initiative and energy.” (pg. 44)

Balefire’s were often lit from a fire created especially for the Beltaine celebrations.  They were called a “need-fire”.   What better source of a “need-fire” than the life-giving, earth warming, burning sun?


“The Fire Tends to All”

Sparks turn to flame

Flickering with life

Aglow they reach for the sky.

Warmth and light

Spreading outward and up

Dancing embers racing on high.

Moths to the flame

The revelers come

The Blessings of summer bestowed.

Wild Wood Tarot Four of Bows

Drums beat the spring tempo

Jump, twirl, grind, and spin

Rejoice all the night

‘Fore a new day begins.

The fire we’ll take

Home to the hearth

The promise of life renewed.

The continuing gifts

Of a season reborn

Yet again, The Fire Tends All.
