    Journal: Beltaine Journal Swap - Due April 20th

    The Sabbats are the Quarter Days (Imbolc, Beltain, Lammas, Samhain) and the Cross-Quarter Days (the Solsitices and Equinoxes). Each day has a specific focus about what is happening in the natural world (Harvest, Planting, Return of the Sun, etc...). We will be swapping pages for each of the quarter and cross quarter days. We are inclusive rather than exclusive regarding diety, interpretation, etc (ie no god/dess turned away for lack of paganness!)

    We are continuing our group with Beltaine that takes place on May 1st. We will each end up with 8 books (one for each holiday) full of traditions, rituals, recipes, etc. from other members of the group.

    This swap originated in the Pagan social group and has a maximum of 11 people. Open slots are posted if anyone else wants to participate. Each person makes 10 pages (or 11 if you want one of your own!) The 10 pages can be either totally individually made or photocopied/printed bases with added embellishments. We understand that a lot of work will go into these either way!

    Pages are: 6x7", allowing a one inch border for binding on the left side(one one side - right or left). Don't decorate that last inch or add any embellishments.

    Here is a list of what you can include on your pages (or feel free to add things that aren't here!)
    Beverages (herbal, alcoholic, medicinal)
    urban magic/practices/rituals for the season
    home/kitchen magic
    invocations to deities/directions/etc
    perfumes
    books/music/films that evoke the season
    prose
    correspondences (colors, animals, elements, deities, numbers, herbs, oils, foods, tarot cards, runes, etc)
    Poems, songs, chants
    holiday traditions from cultures other than white western europe
    crafts
    relationship to the earth (gardening, nature, animals, seasons)
    seasonal health;
    associated deities
    rituals for divination associated with season/holiday; rituals for personal transformation associated with season/holiday
    Correspondences

    Postage: Please send me postage to compensate for returns. For those in the states, $3 is sufficient. For those outside of the states, please send $5 (via paypal - adriayna (at) yahoo (dot) com), well-concealed cash, IRCs, or stamps!

    Please, no withrdrawals so that people are not stuck with extra pages. Thanks!

    1.Wulfcwen - correspondences
    2.Adriayna - Oils, incenses, or something similar

    Ok, it looks like we are just on for 9 participants. Katilday won't have time to finish any (she didn't sign up originally). So send 9. I am going to PM everyone now with a reminder

    Thanks, Dana! Ours will be in the mail on Monday for sure, with a kick in the pants to hurry them along. I just have to watercolour mine and assemble. Won't be a big deal.
