Merry Imbolc! Blessed Brighid Festival Day. Today is a high Sabbath day in many Earth-based Pagan traditions. On the "Wheel of the Year" there are 8 points called Sabbaths that mark the cycles of the seasons. Today the Sun is at 15 degrees in Aquarius, signifying the beginning of Spring. As you may know, folk traditions and the ways of the Wise Women (Witches) were suppressed by the Roman Catholic Church. Because the church authorities couldnt stop the ways of old from being practiced, they adopted then altered then renamed them into Christian holy days. So Imbolc became Candlemas. Then Candlemas become Super Bowl.... Goddess Brighid became Saint Brighid of Kildare... True story.
So this weekend CircleSisters13 will be camping in the woods & dancing around a sacred fire, attuning ourselves to the changing seasons. Now that you are aware of the influx of incoming energy being raised and harnessed via pagan festivals, occultist rituals, the placement of the Sun and the mass excitement of sports fans (Who ya rootin' for?)--
What are your plans? Try lighting a red or white candle and burning it while sitting quietly and giving thanks to the ever burning fires of life. Then If you feel led, take it a step further and practice fire breathing at sunrise. Your body will feel warm and refreshed.
