The brilliant Caroline Mellow of Tales from the Seed has honored us by allowing me to share her Imbolc poem in its entirety here on The Alchemist’s Heart!
If you aren’t familiar with the magic of Imbolc, get ready for a treat! This is a fire festival on February 2nd marking the mid point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.
This is a time of spring awakening!
In Celtic traditions is is known as Brigid’s Day, honoring the Celtic goddess of fire, fertility, midwifery and the young. ‘Imbolc’ comes from Old Irish and means “in the belly,” or alternately “ewe’s milk,” relating this beautiful holiday to a celebration of fertility, reproduction and the young, overseen by the goddess Brigid.
May you allow this poem to wash over you and awaken the power and
regeneration of the new shoots of spring manifesting in your life!
