Who doesn’t feel the love in th e air after Beltane? That celebration of love and fertility can last all month. Are you in the mood for love with someone who’s near you? Someone far away? Are you feeling May’s currents of passion?
Set up your altar with all the love trinkets you can find—candy hearts, chocolate kisses, bright jewelry, photos of the one you love, cut flowers in a vase, or anything else you’re inspired to add. As you light a pink candle (of course), recite these lines from the poem “The Bait” by John Donne and fling them out toward your desired beloved:
Come live with me, and be my love,
Collect some of that golden sand (in a heart-shaped dish) and visualize those silken lines and silver hooks on your altar. Invite your desired beloved to create some special springtime love.
Prove some new pleasures. And go to a good concert. (Be sure to extinguish the candle.)
