    Handfasting Postponed - Kind Of

    >sigh< Money is tight, and Flar and I would really like to be handfasted outdoors. The reason we chose Imbolc was because of its symbolism - the return of the light, new beginnings, etc.....and it is also a new moon. But even in Oklahoma, the weather in February can't be trusted. It might be 70 degrees but it might also be 20. So ~

    We've decided to have a "private" ritual on February 3. Flar's parents are already planning to come, so it will just be us and a few close friends. There are so many people who love Flar and would really like to see this happen, so we plan to have a public ceremony around Beltane in May that everyone can attend. By that time, the weather will definitely be warm enough to have the handfasting outdoors.

    I also thought that this would be a good way to have a purely pagan handfasting for the private ritual and a less blatant one at the second ritual for those who will be attending but don't know that I'm pagan.

    I'd say espically in Feb. the weather in OK. can't be trusted!
    But it's all understandable!
    I wish you the two of you all the best for your private ritual.
    ((((Freyja & Flar))))
    And of course happiness and good fortune as well.

    Hey, maybe I can even make it on Beltane!:D

    Very awesome idea. My Hine and I had thought kinda the same thing. A small ceremony on the beach, followed by a very cool party later.

    Wishing both of you romance and love in your lives together

    Aww, that is too bad.

    But at least you will be together-and that is what counts.

    Just in case you guys were wondering... we support you both the whole way....whatever you need to do... do it. And we want you two to be very happy.... this should do the trick.

    Greta would we be flying out of Nashville - or is there an airport near you. (I actually have no idea.) That would be cool if we could go together.
    OK Freyja - we need a date so that we can plan!
    Beltane - actually - or what?
    Inquiring minds want to know!

    Sounds like we may have to build a besom runway

    Well, you know ~ I gotta check the moon cycle and the planetary aspects first

    Any astrological experts want to help? Beltane is May 1st and my birthday is May 2nd - when I was wishing that my birthday was actually on Beltane, a friend suggested that we could print "Freyja's birthday observed" under the May 1st date.....

    We always have a magickal Beltane ritual with a huge Maypole in one of the city parks that overlooks the city each year - and last year another ritual was added. It would be so much fun to include that, but again, there will be a few invitees who are staunch Christians so I guess that wouldn't work They're really missing out on a lot of fun - at least one person starts weaving the wrong way, screwing the whole thing up, we laugh our butts off and the thing always looks perfect when we're finished.

    I"m sure it'll be a fabulous celebration either way. (Maybe I can make it down in May. )
