Happy Imbolc!

A wise woman once said, "You cannot sow and harvest in the same season." Now is a time for planning, blessing seeds, and manifesting the year’s bountiful harvest.


Imbolc, celebrated between February 1 -3rd depending on the region, is a time for purification, renewal, and honoring the Goddess Bridig's power to bring about change and growth. It is also the halfway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox, a time to honor the coming of Spring and new beginnings. I can almost hear the clock springing ahead!


Imbolc is a time when we can honor and celebrate the gifts of new life and renewal. It is a time to reflect on our dreams and goals, as well as our past successes. It is a time to give thanks for all that we have been blessed with and to look forward to upcoming growth and change. This season represents a transition from winter into spring, and it is an opportunity for us to renew our commitment to living in harmony with nature and each other.


The sabbats are a wonderful way to connect with the changing of the seasons and to honor the Earth and our spiritual paths. Imbolc is an especially potent time for setting intentions, honoring our ancestors, and laying the foundation to build your bright future.


What is a sabbat? Sabbats are typically based on Celtic traditions and eight holidays are observed throughout the year. The eight holidays are Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lughnasadh, and Mabon. Each holiday marks a significant point in the annual cycle of life and has its spiritual meaning. Sabbats provide an opportunity for pagan practitioners to honor their gods and Goddesses and No, you do not have to be a witch to celebrate a sabbat. Anyone can take part in celebrating the changing of seasons and honoring the cycle of life. Whether you practice a specific faith or not, sabbats offer an opportunity to connect with nature and your spiritual side. Some people like to create rituals or hold celebrations with friends and family, while others prefer to spend time alone or in meditation. Sabbats are a time for taking a moment to appreciate the beauty of the world, and soon we will have some roses in bloom to stop and smell!
