Celebrate Imbolc on Candlemas Day. Honor Brigid, goddess of fire, hearth, fields, cows, craft, childbirth and poetry on February 2nd. Invite her into your home, your heart and community. Ask for her blessing during the season of quickening, as days become longer, and we prepare for the ascent of the forces of light, celebrated at the Spring Equinox. Festivals occurring at the mid-point of a fixed sign, like Aquarius, are traditionally feasts of prognostication. The month of Aquarius is the month of the Rowan, tree of the quickening, and of prophetic visions.
