~~February 1, 2020~~
A very dear friend, across the ocean in France, celebrates this special day with me.
Thierry educates me and blesses me. For this, I thank him.
THE ANTICIPATION OF SPRING
Happy birthday, my friends!
May the deesse surround you with its warmth and light. Be blessed!
Imbolc, usually celebrated on February 1st, is associated with the Goddess of Fire Brighid. Sometimes also called imbolic, imbolg or imbolgc, we also know it as Candlemas (in French Candlemas), Lupercalia (in French Lupercalia), Pan Festival, Candle Festival, day of Brigit (or brigantia), feast of brighid , oimealg or the feast of the virgin.
This Sabbath is one of the traditional periods of initiation in the covens and personal engagement rituals. It’s a party of light and heat; at this time, the first winter plants break in the cold: the snow drill, marking the rebirth of nature after the freshness of winter.
Welcome to you, Imbolc,
Source of warmth and renewal!
May the first light of spring will light us
And bring us back to life after this long winter
May this beautiful period be good
To new departures
And that the darkness that surrounded us
Let the say accompany us,
In the beginning of the Renaissance,
Let the paths open,
And what the hopes live
Like the buds we are,
In front of the sun we are getting tired,
No more gloomy and cold weather,
Your heat finally is back.
May our hearts carried away by this light
Give life to our souls,
May the heavenly light invade us
To find peace and appeasement.
