The King is Crowned
Beltane, firey feasts and lusty rituals, celebrating the Sun God's coronation. As summer begins, weather warms, and the plant world blossoms. In Celtic traditions it was a time of unabashed sexuality and promiscuity where marriages of a year and a day could be undertaken.
Young people spend the entire night in the woods "A-Maying," and then dance around the phallic Maypole the next morning. Older married couples remove their wedding rings this one night.
May morning is a magickal time for wild water (dew, flowing streams, and springs) which is collected and used to bathe in for beauty, or to drink for health.
