Imbolc and the Promise of Spring (reblogged from Sage Goddess)



Imbolc is the time when we begin looking for the first new growth and new life of the season. It’s a truly magickal time. I am reblogging this wonderful article from Sage Goddess and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

 Imbolc and the Promise of Spring

Winter’s medicine is about rest, recovery, and withdrawing inside ourselves. When we rest as we’re called to during Winter, we have the energy we need to sustain us for the remainder of the year. Imbolc is a holiday of hope – the first signs that the icy momentum will soon change as life stirs deep within. Imbolc is a last call for Bear medicine – the days begin to grow longer and barren trees shift with new life. If you haven’t rested enough, take this time to honor the cycle. Can we learn from bear and hibernate sufficiently to restore ourselves ahead of the busy warmth of the waking seasons?
