Imbolc Prepare to Burst Forth

Gather yourself together
Gather yourself together
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?


I would love to hear what you have to say.
