Imbolc/Candlemas February 1-2

Imbolc is known as the great festival and honoring our beloved pagan Goddess Brigid. Brigid is the Goddess of healing and poetry. The Goddess of Fire and the Sun.

Brigid is the Triple Goddess, but on Imbolc she is in her Maiden form.


Today is a time to let go of the past and look forward to the future. Today and tomorrow is the perfect time to clear out the old, opening up space for new beginnings, body, mind and spirit.


Here is a quick spell ritual to do when you eat dinner tonight.


Farewell Blessed Winter Dinner


Supplies:

Dinner food

Table

White candle, Red candle and Yellow candle


Spell Ritual:

  • Set up your table with spring decorations, place settings for you, family members who are joining in and a place for the Goddess Brigid.

  • Place the 3 candles in the middle of the table.

  • Serve your food including food for Brigid.

  • Have everyone sit down.

Say: "This is the season of Brigid, She who protects our home. We honor her and give her many thanks. Thank you Great Lady for keeping us warm as we eat this meal. We ask you to bless our food and protect us during this winters transition."

  • Light the 3 candles.

Say:"Married to Mother Earth, Friend of the faeries, blessed keeper of the eternal flame.

In Fall, the nights began to lengthen, and the days grew shorter, as the Mother earth went to sleep. Now, Goddess Brigid stokes her fire, burning her flames in the hearth,

bringing the light back to us once again. Winter has been brief, but this life is forever.

Thank you Goddess Brigid for making it so. So Mote it be!"

  • Now enjoy your dinner!

  • Blow out candles after dinner is done.

Love and Light
