Somewhere, Crocus are beginning to poke their way up through frozen dirt, slush, snow, desperate to fling themselves wide to the sun. Somewhere, birds are finding their voices again, calling out glad tidings of light and warmth renewing.
Life is stirring.
The Goddess, worn from grieving in late Autumn and birthing at Winter's beginning, is wakening once more. She is growing stronger.
It's a time of fire, this holiday - lighting candles to welcome the sun's brightness, candles of orange, red, yellow, His colors.
Fire brings blessings, healing, and change.
Make and bless candles today for use during the year.
If the day dawns bright and clear, there will be a second (or longer) winter.
Weave Brigit's crosses from straw or wheat to hang about the house, invoking protection for the household.
The candle on our altar is burning, the light that us find our way in the darkness...may it ever burn...
Oh, and? Happy birthday, K2, sister of my heart!!!!!
