Imbolc Signs : Tephramancy

From Lonestar Cremation their article on scattering ashes. Notice that the Ash in this picture almost looks like a human with a vaporous lower body flying away.

Today I did a special ritual celebrating all the holidays. And leaving a special time just for Imbolc. Well my time to celebrate it. I try to get it as astronomically close as possible. When all was said and done.

When all my prayers were finished and I laid my Brídeóg or doll of Brighid to rest. This year I didn’t make one. I found a strange shaped stick and felt that it should be this years doll.

Laying the Brídeóg to sleep. As Brigid sleeps, she blesses the home.

Now I don’t have any corn husks where I live. So I make my dolls based in whatever so I can find in my own backyard.

It almost made me feel like it was a woman with four arms welcoming me. Hence, why I, or rather it choose me.

This year I was so exhausted I couldn’t do the traditional reading of the poetry. She loves poetry. I did however light seven candles in her honor. I walked around the outside of my home with a lighter to replace the torch that was once used. And I said,

“Bride! Bride! This is your home! Come to this place Bride!”

I couldn’t remember the exact phrasing. But I did the best I could to invite her into my home and into the Brídeóg. Normally I read “Candlemas” by Alice Brown just for her. But I have had so many problems since the end of last year that I haven’t had the time to do the fun stuff. I did the rituals and prayers for her and other Deities and spirits associated with Candlemas instead.

Imbolc from the History Channel

I prayed to Oya, and the Virgin of Candelaria (Candlemas) among them. And I asked for help. And I believe I got it. I had burned some incense for Brighid and another Goddess. In an eclectic ritual and asked for aid and guidance in a legal matter.

Normally the seventh candle I burn shows me the sign I desire through the wax, flame, and shadow. But this year I did it a little different. This is what the sticks left behind.

The Spiral Serpent

The Spiral Serpent is a motif found across many cultures. And it mostly symbolizes eternity and fertility. And this one had a special meaning I am not going to divulge. But essentially it means that victory is mine. That the Gods are with me.

As are their spirits. So I knew that the issue I asked help with was safe guarded. I could breathe some relief. I am also asking them for healing. And help regaining money.

I still have a long way to go, but at least I have their support.

The Goddess and her people on Imbolc

So I have decided to take some more time off to enjoy the spring season. Well Spring in Florida. I am going to read more books. And try not to spend too much time online. Which is hard because I love to write.

And to read articles and post Pagan imagery and memes on Instagram. But I need to spend my time resting and growing my mind again, With that said, a happy Imbolc to you all.

The Children of Imbolc

Imbolc and Ascent of Kore Tommorow Saturday Feb 2nd, Feast of Oya, Candlemas and Nut’s Birthday

Pretty much everything in the title describes what is happening Saturday. And I haven’t even finished mentioning the other holidays. And it’s Shani Pradosha in the Hindu Calender for Shiva. Which means we have a massive holiday and feast this Saturday. The Sky Goddess Nwt (Nut) of Ancient Egypt is celebrating her birthday tomorrow.

Briganti (Brighid) the Goddess of Fire, Poetry, Healing, and so much more is being celebrated on Imbolc. This is the second year that the Astronomical feast of Imbolc falls on the same day as Candlemas. Originally, Feb 2nd was turned into Candlemas because that was the day Imbolc was celebrated that one year. But the Catholics either didn’t realize or didn’t care, that some Pagan holidays change with the seasons. So they kept celebrating the Christian version of Imbolc on the same day.

While the actual day kept changing days every year. Whenever Imbolc and Candlemas coincide, I notice an alignment of energy between the Christian and Pagan faiths. All that faith concentrated on one day. Imbolc begins at Sunset tomorrow and ends Sunset on Sunday. If the weather is bad, that means the Winter will end soon and Spring will come faster.

If the weather is good and sunny, we’re in for a long Winter. For nature’s sake I hope that Persephone can leave with Hekate early from the Underworld so that she can become Kore the Maidan Goddess of Spring again. The polar vortex has already killed too many people. And the animals are afraid. They need the seasons to become normal again.

Sadly, for that to happen we need politicians to stop denying Global Warming. We need real action. Yemaya also has one celebration tomorrow (dates vary). And it’s Inventor’s Day and National Hedgehog Day in the US! Yay! No matter what feast you choose to celebrate, make sure you do offerings for spring to hurry the Hell up and get here already. I will be performing a special forecast on events for you tomorrow. Doing all the proper Divinations and services and letting you know what turns up.
