The cycle of new life returns to the earth. Nature is pregnant, and it is only just visible, it is a time of hope and preparation. Everything re-awakens, the days are getting noticeably longer, the first bulbs show, the first lambs are born, you can practically smell that spring is coming. We welcome the growing light and witness how life has an appetite for rebirth.
This is a fire festival, so fire plays a big part in the celebrations. This festival is dedicated to Brigid, the goddess of fire, poetry, healing, smithcraft and midwifery. By lighting fires the increasing power of the sun in the coming
months is celebrated.
A great way to celebrate this festival is by lighting all the lights in the house, or by putting candles in every room.
It is a time to let go of the past and look to the future. To have a really good clear-out, so that there is room for the new, both spring cleaning the home and clearing the mind and heart. It is a great time for manifestation, to visualize what you truly want to achieve.
