Imbolc

Imbolc means “ewe’s milk,” and refers to the lactation of ewes, the impending birth of lambs i.e. the renewal of life. Imbolc is also the Feast of Brighid, the Lady of creativity. Imbolc is the time of beginnings, the first stirrings of life. Snowdrops and crocuses appear. The groundhog arouses from slumber. It is a time to plant seeds. It is a time to plant our seeds, make plans and commitments to the new growing time. Imbolc is also when we make dedications. It is the traditional time for initiation – certainly a powerful new beginning! House cleansings and blessings are done at Imbolc. This is a good time to do spring cleaning. Imbolc is still deepest winter, but the promise of spring and new life is strong and the days are noticeably longer.
