Blessings to everyone!
As the Wheel of the Year continues to turn, we once again find the sunlight soaking into the ground and thawing the soil. The Earth stirs as it begins to wake up and new growth begins.
Traditionally on February 1st and 2nd we celebrate the sabbat called Imbolc. This time commemorates the changing of the goddess from the Crone to the Maiden and celebrates the first signs of Spring.
It is a time to cleanse, clear, heal and be inspired to create new magic in your life! This season prepares for growth and renewal and honors and welcomes the rebirth of the sun.
