Light a candle up of your choice (I chose red but you can choose any). You may burn the wood/herbs (rosemary etc) you want to burn. And chant this:

"Bless,O threefold true and bountiful,
Myself, my spouse, my children,
Bless everything within my dwelling and in my possession.
Bless the kine and the crops,the flocks and the corn,
From Samhain Eve to Beltane Eve,
With goodly progress and gentle blessing,
From sea to sea,and every river mouth,
From wave to wave,and base of waterfall.
Be the Maiden,Mother,and Crone,
Taking possession of all to me belonging.
Be the Horned God,the Wild Spirit of the Forest,
Protecting me in truth and honor.
Satisfy my soul a x shield loved ones,
Blessing every thing and every one.
All my land and surroundings.
Great gods who create and bring life to all,
I ask for your blessings on this day of life.

Blessed be this day of Beltane.
Wedding day of the Goddess and the God.
Holy day of Sacred Marriage.
Holy night of Sacred Union.
The fertile Goddess of the Summer walks through the land
With the Great Horned God of the forest.
And the dark time of Winter is behind me.

Blessed Be
May your light shine upon the earth
May the summer be hot as fire
May the winter stay behind me.
So mote it be!"

You may get rid of the ashes/any leftovers any way you like. Doesn't really matter.

Technically this is a ritual, not a spell, but it's a wonderful chant to the deities on Beltane.

What is the difference between a ritual and a spell? and what are you going to do with the ashes and any leftovers? why does this spell use a red candle?

Spell is like a prayer but with some objects [candles, herbs, crystals] a ritual is a longer celebration think about going to church on Sunday. Mass would be the ritual, communion would be the spell] A ritual also tends to include things like meditation, saying thanks for your blessings, honouring the season/moon [the reason you're doing the ritual] calling on a spiritual being [usually a deity, but could be Dragons, faeries, demons, angels, even your ancestors or higher self] cake and ale [offering] and occasionally spell casting. Spells don't need a ritual to be cast. You could cast a spell while stirring your morning drink. Rituals require more pageantry and effort. As for leftovers, it depends on the situation. Since this is a Beltane ritual, it would seem likely to place these objects outside in a park or forest to return to nature. You could also bury the remainder or toss it in water, provided it's safe to do so [I know it's frowned upon, but garbage is also an option, but stuff like food offerings are best placed outside] Finally, the red candle. That's clearly explained as the creator's personal preference as the colour is optional. Beltane is a fertility and fire festival as well as a sacred day for faeries. The colours associated with Beltane are green, red, white and silver. That's probably why they went with red. Look around you, what is in bloom right now? what does this time of year feel like to you? What colours are you seeing in your environment? I live in Canada, and there are still a few more weeks until the threat of snow is gone in my area. That said, there are some flowers, buds on trees, spring birds, and rhubarb is starting to appear in farmers' markets. I tend to celebrate with stuff like a fruit flan or strawberry rhubarb pie, picnic outside [if warm] and have a date night with my husband. I suggest researching the holiday and journaling about it [not just the traditional stuff, but also how you feel about it and what you would do to celebrate the day]

It can be both. Depends on how you see it and how long it is.

You can bury the spell leftovers or throw them into a running river. It all depends on your practice and how you wish to dispose of the spell remnants. There are also specific meanings behind doing each different way. The candle being red is to symbolize love, a burning desire, fire, and anything related to romance, sex, etc because Beltane is highly associated with fertility, sex, love, romance, and anything similar to this.

I recommend researching the Pagan holiday Beltane before performing this spell
