The Morrigan is to be honored at Samhain as she is the Goddess of death. What’s more, when An Dagda slept with her on a Samhain night, she, a Goddess of sovereignty and battle, looked to the Tuatha de Dannan with favor and brought them victory in war.

“Witches Brew” by Omnia. This makes me want to dance under the moon…

The other one not on here that should be is the Maypole Song from The Wickerman. It’s a classic. Really, anything from The Wickerman is appropriateContinue reading “Beltaine Songs from The Juggler”
“Tine Bealtaine” by one of my favorite groups – Omnia. Time to get in the mood for tonight’s Beltaine festivities – the Maypole – the playful dance of fertility, the fires, and the celebration of renewed life!
