The Bee "invites us to celebrate. You may have a special reason for celebration, or you may simply need to celebrate the wonder and mystery of being alive. In the Druid tradition there are occasions to celebrate every six weeks or so. As human beings, we need times when we can come together to enjoy each other's company. The bee tells us that we can live together in harmony, however impossible this may sometimes seem. By being at one with the natural world by paying homage to the sun, by centering our lives around Spirit or the Goddess, we can work together in community."
Reverse meaning: "Do you feel out of place - unsure of your role in the world? A beehive functions harmoniously because each bee knows its role - consequently, it is highly productive and plays an imporatnt part in the local ecology. If you lack motivation, or feel isolated from the community that surrounds you, think about your role in life and make dicisions in accordance with your sense of purpose and the goals you wish to reach. Remember that the bee knows the value of organization, of paying homage to the Goddess and the sun, and of working hard. Remember, too, that she calls us to a celebration of life and an inner recognition of our membership of the community of all Nature."
