May is a heady, gorgeous month, when you can’t help thinking about romance, and happiness seems just round the corner. All down through history the start of May has been marked by fertility festivals. The maypole is a symbol of sexuality, and the old custom of selecting a May Queen in the community honored gifts of beauty and sensuality. In fact it was a subconscious method of worshipping the Goddess of the Land in a time when religion was male-dominated.
Celebrating May Day is about celebrating your own gifts, appreciating and enjoying your body, and having fun!
PEP UP YOUR PARTNERSHIP!
Does your partner make you feel like a May Queen? (or King, maybe!) It’s easy for relationships to go stale, and maybe you take each other for granted. Try doing something different. Go for walks together, breathing in the scent of the earth. Roll down a hillside, float messages to each other down a rippling stream, photograph each other in a wood full of bluebells. Take a trip somewhere you’ve never been, even if you can only afford bikes, or the bus. Have a picnic, under a massive umbrella if it’s raining. Being active together is very sexy.
BOOK A DAY OFF TOGETHER
In early May, spend a day together, just being a couple and doing what you enjoy, whatever that may be. As long as you’re both happy, that’s what counts. Want completely different things? Divide the day in half, compromise and laugh about it, even if you do end up in a museum or motor-bike showroom!
MAKE A SPECIAL VOW
The Full Moon is such a magical time and this year it falls on the Bank Holiday, May 4th. Why not make an important date of this? Share a bottle of wine, and hold hands under the moonlight, if the weather is good – if not, go indoors and light a candle. Make each other a special promise for the coming year. This may mean renewing a commitment, or it may just be about doing something that will bring your lover pleasure, or satisfaction. It could even be about stopping a habit that’s been disrupting your partnership. Let the sweetness of May Day turn everything negative into history.
EACH PERSON HAS ONE WISH FOR MAYDAY
Each of you can have one wish granted for May Day – something you want your partner to do for you. Of course you should choose something reasonable, that your partner is going to be ok about. Enjoy that bit of indulgence – why not make it part of your life?
IF YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN?
It can be hard being alone with the heady atmosphere of Spring all around, but don’t despair! There will be plenty of people who feel the same, and they will be looking for partners too – so anything could happen. Don’t hide away – go to May Fayres and events, and smile! Who knows whom you might meet? Also, pamper yourself – book a massage or other treat and tell yourself nice things about yourself that you can really believe, such as ‘I am kind and helpful’ or ‘I have lovely eyes.’ Make that your May Day mantra.
