May 01, 2015: Beltane The Sacred Wedding

Next Friday, May 01, 2015 is Beltane the celebration of Spring, fertility, The Goddess and The Sacred Wedding.

Its a time when the Earth/Land and  the Heaven/Sky join as one to produce off-springs such as new life, fruit and blessings, new starts and new beginnings.

Beltane is the Great Wedding between the Goddess and the God in ancients traditions. Also, a time of sexual freedom and playful nature.

It’s May! It’s May!
The lusty month of May!…
Those dreary vows that ev’ryone takes,
Ev’ryone breaks.
Ev’ryone makes divine mistakes!
The lusty month of May!

May 03, 2015, a full moon in Scorpio will heighten sexuality and dark creativity energy over the weekend.

But the sacredness of Beltane can not be overlooked. The May Queen and The May Bride. The Young Oak King, as Jack-In-The-Green, as the Green Man, falls in love with her and wins her hand. The union is consummated and the May Queen becomes pregnant. Together the May Queen and the May King are symbols of the Sacred Marriage (or Heiros Gamos), the union of Earth and Sky, and this union has merrily been re-enacted by humans.
