Imbolc Tarot Spread
Imbolc, also known as Imbolg is again upon us, as the Wheel of the Year, turns once again. Imbolc is celebrated February 1-2, and also is associated with the Goddess Brigid, as well as the Christian Festival known as Candlemas, and Saint Brigid. Imbolc's origins are Gaelic and was originally celebrated as a festival marking the beginning of Spring in Ireland, and Scotland. Now it is mostly celebrated by Celtic Wiccans, and other Wiccans & Witches.
Imbolc means "in the belly" and is associated with the "quickening of the year" where the earth begins to awaken and renew. It is a time associated with the Spring and new beginnings. We are hopeful as the light returns to us, and the days or light gets longer. It is a time of rebirth, clearing out the past, and is a great time to do spring cleaning as well as energetic cleansing and clearing.
Imbolc is associated with the Goddess Brigid who is a Goddess of hearth, home, healing, fire, poetry, metal and smithcraft. She is celebrated by making grass crosses or corn dollies. Sometimes the doll was placed into a straw bed called Bride’s bed along with a wooden club and then burned as an offering for Brigid.
Candles have also become a big part of celebrations of Imbolc as they represent the return of the light.
Divination is also associated with Imbolc and it is a great time to do a tarot spread to receive messages from Spirit.
