Yesterday I shared a post about the pagan festival days for Goddess Bridgit called Imbolc. This FIRE FESTIVAL falls on Feb 01 and Feb 02 every year to mark the turn of seasons; Winter to Spring. It's NO COINCIDENCE Groundhog Day also occurs during this time. The groundhog is a symbol of the underworld, as the name implies- an EARTH ELEMENTAL. These huge squirrels (Marmots) mate in early Spring and therefore are symbolic of FERTILITY- FIRE ELEMENAL. It is an American tradition for these hibernating rodents to awaken from Winter slumber to gauge the environment and determine if it's time to mate or go back to sleep. The mythos says it looks for its shadow. Translated: The groundhog's behavior predicts the early signs of the sun preparing to return its dominance in the sky.
And this just so happens during the pre-Christian folk festival of Imbolc? It's only unrelated for those who dont understand ESOTERICISM. Groundhog Day is a modernday ABUNDANCE ritual. Did you notice the formal ceremony? I wouldn't be surprised if following the public play the earthpig is later sacrificed and returned to the Earth or given to a consecrated HEARTH.
Until we REDISCOVER and REMEMBER our magick, we will be USED in other people's secret (esoteric) programs. There are many good people and wise counsels crafting works for the betterment of us all. There are simultaneously many in collusion siphoning away our resources. We cannot afford FEAR of the OLD WAYS. It is my belief we need to BLEND the BEST PARTS.
