We welcome the Greek goddess Aphrodite and her Graces: Beauty, Joy, and Splendor, in our celebration of this season of blossoming!

Spring always returns, and with it our ability to stretch toward love and beauty as we witness the upwelling of life all around us. We are the children of love and we create splendor wherever we go! Our bodies are divine vessels with which we manifest the gifts of the Graces!

Come and receive the blessings of Aphrodite and pass through the balefires to bring your desires to fruition!

Feel free to bring drink or food to share, or flowers for the altar.

At this ritual, we will crown our ceremonial May King, Queen, and Nymph.
