Imbolc is the traditional festival marking the very beginning of spring. It is held from the sunset of January 31st to the sacred fire lit on the dawn of February 1st, which is the halfway point between Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox.

This is the time of year when the Earth is stirring.

The young buds are filled with life force energy and everything is gaining momentum to emerge in a new way after the long, cold winter months. The sap begins to rise and bulbs are pushing through the earth.

There is an urge and longing to move forward and plant your ideas into the world.

Think of this time as the emergence of your Voice and bring forth your Vision through writing, poetry and singing. It’s time to ignite the Divine Inner Spark of your creativity and call forth the fertility of your Vision.
