A Modern Day Mystery School for Ancient Future Mystics Transforming the World with Love!

Imbolc Blessings …

 

February 1st, 2017 — Blessings of this cross quarter holy day in the Great Wheel of the year! Known as Imbolc, Candlemas, Festival of Light, Day of Brigid and also Ground Hog Day!
.
It’s the mid day point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. In the days not too long ago when people were reliant on growing their own food and making sure that they had enough provisions to last them through to the Spring when they could plant again this midway point was very important.
.
This was seen as a time to celebrate the return of the light and strengthen it. Interestingly as well, in the Jewish tradition this marks the 40 day period after the birth of Jeshua and was the time he was brought to the temple for presentation. It is also associated with the goddess Brigid who was the Celtic triple goddess and keeper of the Fire and bringer of inspiration! It is also a festival day for the African goddess Yemaya!
