Fire Releasing, Full Moon & Imbolc

Full moon is a time of releasing. You can put your hurts, grievances, shadows & anger on paper and release with intent. Notice where you feel the issue in your body. Fire is the quickest way elementally to clear energy. The full moon (today) is a great time to light the fire of life and come back to yourself.

We also have Imbolc this Friday, which, on the Celtic wheel of the Year IS a fire holiday – the townspeople would walk through their village after dark with torches of fat-dipped mullein and candles once Candlemas co-opted this sacred holiday and became about Mary instead of Brigid or the local’s goddess.

Imbolc means “quickening,” bringing to life. And so we look back at the last 6 weeks from Yule, gather our Yule greens and any items ready to clear by fire or give away (donate some stuff out of your house) so we can give birth to ourselves again as the cycle of life continues and in another 6 weeks the seedlings emerge from the soil, physically and within us. This is a time of seed-blessing, clearing to make space for new life and turning over – preparation.
