The Holly and the Oak are viewed as two “kings” who exchange leadership on a yearly basis by engaging in symbolic battle.
The Gaelic name for Holly—Tinne—is related to the word, tanist, meaning “dark twin” reigns during the waning light of the year, until winter solstice.
The Holly King overseer of holly trees, he rules the forests and woods during the fall and winter seasons.
Call upon the Holly King to help you rest, reflect and retreat.
The guardian Oak King rules from the time the light begins its ascent in December until the summer solstice in June.
Call upon the Oak king to help you with new projects and anything involving growth, renewal, and birth.
