This month’s theme is so incredibly appropriate for the Beltane season. The Hieros Gamos is the sacred marriage between The Goddess and the king of the land. The queen personified The Goddess, and chose her mate to rule beside her as her consort. That plays into the whole sexuality/fertility theme of Beltane so well! The king had to prove his virility in order to be king, and the queen was seen as the fertile/fecund representation of new life to come.
I’ll be using this omen and this holiday to have some adult fun in my marriage. 🙂
As always, I found my theme via bibliomancy from The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred Objects by Barbara G. Walker.
