Fertile MindsNamed for the goddess Maia, the month of May is a month of fertility and new birth. Unlike April, which bursts forth, May comes wandering in with gentleness and kindness. May is the month of maturity when things come to pass. May is loaded with holidays, both traditional and new ones that give almost every day on the calendar special significance. Between festivals, feasts, gatherings and celebrations, May is well into spring in the north and pushing autumn in the south. It is the between state of birth and death.
