Gemstones For Beltane Energy All Month Long
Beltane sits opposite Samhain on the Wheel of the Year, which makes it one of the two most significant sabbats of the Celtic calendar. Just as the veil is thin around Samhain, so too is it thinner around Beltane. But unlike its darker counterpart, Beltane is all about fire, fertility, and renewal. Also, like Samhain, Beltane’s energy is so intense that it can be felt leading up to the sabbat, and its celebration can continue all month long. To help you honor Beltane, we’ve curated gemstones that will help you sustain its energy throughout the month.
May’s birthstone is Emerald, and this beautiful stone was one of Cleopatra’s favorite gem types. Emerald resonates with the heart chakra and the element of Earth. It’s sometimes called the “stone of successful love” and is said to bring joy to your home life. Use emerald in your Beltane rituals and all year long for emotional wellbeing, intuition, faith, serenity, and happiness. It can be especially useful at this time when the veil is thin, to enhance your connection with your own consciousness.
