Beltane/Litha is known as the season of romance and love - from the courting of the fair maiden by the Green Man in Spring...to the Summer Solstice - a very auspicious time for a marriage or handfasting (June is known as "wedding month")! El and I will be performing a Summer Solstice handfasting for 2 of our Mother Grove members - Shauna & Patrick - and we are very excited!

I remember it was during the New Moon of Beltane that El proposed to me - very romantically in an old world, Renaissancey kind of way - quite magical!

In this issue are some articles that explore alternative relationships - different kinds of Love and connection with each other...reminding us that Love is as Love does - you can't put it into a box and label it...you can study and disect it all you want, but it will not be limited by your limits in understanding it. It is all-encompassing. It chooses whether and where to go and whom to connect...

Wishing all of you much Love and connection to enrich your lives, and may the seeds you planted at Ostara now blossom and bear fruit in this season of bounty and growth!

Seasonal blessings,
In Gaia,
