Beltane Oat Cakes

Stormy Stewart


Oatcakes are a part of the Beltane ceremony. The roundness is symbolic of the life-giving sun. During Beltane a bonfire is kept going all night long. Pieces of the cake are thrown into the fire as an offering.

Begin by blessing these cakes in a prayer of gratitude, giving thanks to the Goddess and God for their abundance.


We are each a part of the joyous circle of love.
As we cast the bread into the fire
We fuse together into the One Being,
That always was and always will be.
