Imbolc


A blessed Imbolc everyone!

Imbolc is about half way between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox and celebrates the first stirrings of Spring.

This period of growth, gestation, and birth makes it feel like a time of beginnings, and so for me it feels like the beginning of the year, trumping Samhain (the Witches New Year) and January 1st.

I have chosen today’s bright blue sky for my #witchwithme IMBOLC submission, as when I think of Imbolc I think of the blue skies and sunshine that are now (occasionally!) making an appearance.
We have brighter days with a noticeable change in light quality, and with that comes a change of attitude, as well as feelings of rebirth and renewal. It is a time of magic and transformation; and of hope: the return of the light we celebrated at the Winter Solstice is now confirmed. The Sun is returning!
