Imbolc — Saturday February 2
This is the time after the Great Dark but before the Bursting Forth. This is the time for dreaming and for knowing our dreams. This is the time for illumination. The light grows. Shadows take form as the darkness recedes. Resting still in the cauldron of birth, we close two eyes and open our third … Gather in circles to grow more luminous, recite poetry, start seeds or a creative project. And light many candles!

I start sweet peas on Imbolc each year. It’s a great practice especially in June when there sweet perfume fills the air.
What will you do as an act of faith the Sun will return?
Yes, preparing to burst forth. A super-blessed Imbolc to you, Carol!
Oh hello Maria, I don’t know why I didn’t see this. Happy Chines New Year to you, too. Many blessings 🙂
You are bursting forth! The virtual circle sounds fascinating, keep me informed,
This is so meaningful to me. On Friday I’m taking part in a vitual women’s circle and on Feb 5th I’m doing poetry reading on line. Way cool.
