Nature Table - Pentecost
Before the Christian religion, Pentecost was (and is) a festival of ancient rituals and pagan traditions. It is a celebration of human awareness and creative power. After the blossoming of early spring, the fruit principle can now mature.
We're dancing together around the maypole as a connection between heaven and earth. The arriving pigeon is a messenger of the spiritual plane. The egg, caterpillar , cocoon and butterfly symbolize the metamorphosis in nature. The groom holds a ringing bell to attract fertility and scare away evil.
