. 🔥⚒🌀 . #rememberinglightchallenge Week 3 | Brigid’s Forge Second Prompt: What shape will I bring into form with this raw material? Four of Swords Five of Pentacles | The Hermit Seriously though…..is Tarot having me on? Both the Four of Swords and the Hermit are repeaters. On the level of the spiritual, the retreat of the 4/S is still needed to heal from burdens. Physical manifestation isn’t the point with my personal lessons/outcomes of Imbolc. But what I WILL bring into form is depth of sight and knowing, or clarity. With a day to day perspective, the messages so far in this challenge are about learning to release mental struggle, listen for uncontaminated messages***, and act without the need to push the river. ***uncontaminated by ego or shadow-programmed or consensus reality . 🔥🌱⚒🍃🌀 . #Imbolc #candlemas #summoningthelight #brigid #brigidsforge #februarytarotchallenge #seasonaltide #tarotcommunity #tarotchallenge #divinationchallenge #goddessesofthelight #sacredfeminine

I'm keeping busy doing lots of Wicca research this week, and I've been celebrating a very belated Imbolc. . Imbolc is a Celtic festival usually celebrated on the second day of February. The original meaning 'Imbolc' means in the belly. All is pregnant and expectant and the new life of spring is ushered in. . It is a fire festival celebrating the pagan goddess Bridgid, who was later woven into Christianity as St Bridget. . It's a time to let go of the past and look to the future. Hense the tradition of spring cleaning. At Imbolc you should clean the mind and heart as well as the home. . Today I've had a go at making my own Bridey Doll and Bridgets Cross. My bridey doll has a scrap of my old uniform tying it together which feels particularly poetic. . . . . #imbolc #witchythings #wicca #wiccan #educational #stbridget #candlemas #firefestival #brideydoll #bridgidcross #pag#pagancrafts #pagan #witchesofinstagram #sustainableliving #snowdrops #spring #outwiththeold #inwiththenew #artist #candles #feilebrighde

“Brigid represents the light half of the year which banishes the dark, so all forms of light, heat and illumination were sacred to her. So it’s no wonder that Imbolc was marked with bonfires, blazing hearths, lit candles and a feast of sacred foods symbolizing the power of the sun. This was a high time for magic, for ritually burning off and releasing the old year and nourishing the new.” ~ @gathervictoria 🎨 @emilybalivet23 #brigid #exaltedone #sun#suness #sun #fire #light #warmth #imbolc #candlemas #divinefeminine #emilybalivet

The wonderful snow drops in Firle Churchyard, East Sussex, under a sprinkling of snow on the last day of January. Herald of spring, symbol of the festivals of Imbolc and Candlemas. But, todays just for fun question, what is the literary connection with this place? #firle #bookstall #authorsofinstagram #bookstagram #nature #spring #candlemas #imbolc #church #southdowns #southdownsway
