A MidSpring Ritual by Critter

Midspring is a month away, and planning teams are starting to get to work, so in hopes of reaching the ears of said teams, I would like to propose a differently structured ritual, a Wicca that is inclusive of trans people, same-sex relationships, and asexuals.

The upcoming sabbat, often called Beltane, is usually modeled after rituals where farmers would wish for the success of their crops. The actual historical truth of these events are less important than the myths that have been perpetuated of farmers engaging in real or symbolic cis-hetero sex to bless that years crops. The main thrust of the rituals I have been in is that this mock sex formed a strong parallel between plant fertility, human fertility, and livestock fertility; and that humans who did their part would ensure the safety of the other two.
