Imbolc, also known as Candlemas and Groundhog's Day, occurs at the beginning of February on February 2nd. It marks the middle of Winter and holds the promise of Spring. The Goddess manifests as the Maiden and the Goddess Brigid, the Goddess of Fire.
The Goddess Brigid is celebrated on Imbolc, this sacred pagan holiday. A celebration of the return of the sun amd the return of the light from the dark of winter. It marks the middle of winter and holds the promise of spring. Celtic tradition celebrates the return of Spring, as the Crone begins her transformation into the ethereal Maiden of Flowers. Witches are abundant in illumination as a myriad of candles are lit shedding light upon the darkness of winter. The light shines thru the cold winter days as the returning of spring is approaching, the earth soon to be reawakened.
In ancient times, people danced around bonfires and celebrated until dawn. Certain foods are traditional for Candlemas/Imbolc, such as crepes and pancakes. Because of their rounded shape and golden color, they are symbolic of the returning sun, which this holiday represents. The emphasis on fire represents the returning warmth of spring and the spark of life and fertility for the coming planting season. The element of fire is the element of creation and beginnings.
The Candle Wheel or Sun Wheel is at the center of the celebrations. As the days begin to grow longer and with the return of the Sun, Imbolc is the time to visualize life flourishing with abundance, creativity and renewed strength. Imbolc represents purification, renewal, reflection, fertility and illumination.
