The root of the word May comes from the Goddess Maia. She's the goddess of seasonal growth.To the Greeks, she was considered "grandmother of magic." Her festival is May 1st. The Celts called her festival Beltane and started the tradition of "the wearing of the green." The Celtic celebration was rather robust. Wine flowed freely and there was plenty of dancing around the "May Pole." It was definitely a celebration of fertility, both for summer crops and for human reproduction.

It's said that she scorned marriage. Her son, Hermes became a skilled magician and the messenger to the gods. As the mother of Hermes, she ordered her son to escort the dead to the dead to the underworld. Followed by bouquets of her beautiful May flowers, of course.

On Beltane, she offers fulfillment and renewal to all who seek it.

To honor Maia wear flowers on your shirt. Plant flowers in your garden or leave bouquets to a friend in secret. Take a walk in a lovely botanical garden and enjoy the robust beauty this goddess had to offer.
