Beltane honors life. It represents the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer. Earth energies are at their strongest and most active. All of life is bursting with potent fertility and at this point in the Wheel of the Year, the potential becomes conception. On May Eve the sexuality of life and the earth is at its peak. Abundant fertility, on all levels, is the central theme. The Maiden goddess has reached her fullness and is ready to be Queen. She is the manifestation of growth and renewal. The Young Oak King 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, the union of Earth and Sky, and this union has merrily been re-enacted by humans throughout the centuries. Beltane is about sexuality and sensuality, passion, vitality and joy, and also conception. It is a brilliant moment in the Wheel of the Year to bring ideas, hopes and dreams into action…and have some fun.
