Updated: Feb 14
February is a time for tenderness and subtle stirrings, beneath you in the earth
and within you, of plans, projects, quiet reflection of things you may be having the
first inclinations about.
Remember that St.Brighid, the Goddess we celebrate at Imbolc, at the start of February,
presides over Holy wells, go to these places, seek them out, or have a bowl of
water and a floating candle on your alter, place snowdrops and anything white
and green you can find to honour the Goddess at this time.
If you can find, or make, a Brighid's cross, this can be hung by your fire or on your
alter as an offering for her.
Let Brighid light a fire in your heart,
There is hope, there is splendour
Of a tulip pushing its way through the earth
A snowdrop like a bell
Ringing in, there is hope in the air
Look to your own holy waters within
Waters of birth, transformation, stillness
Keep warm with the scents of rosemary, cinnamon, lavender and clary sage
Invoke this seasons tenderness
Life is stirring beneath you
With the first whisperings of mother earth
Allow your dreams to grow new shoots
Honour Brighid with these gentle new beginnings
For she is the goddess of the bards, the poets
She is who we honour with our song, our painting,
She inspires our creativity
So light a candle for her
And for all who need tender inspiration in this cold winter month
And keep your own inner flame burning
