Imbolc Blessings to each one of you! Tomorrow February 3 is Solar Imbolc and the perfect day to be in ritual. I would love to offer an Imbolc ritual that was just passed on to me.
Arise early in the morning tomorrow on February 3rd when it is still dark. The time of Imbolc in the Solar Gate perspective is 3-6 am, with Winter Solstice being 12-3 am. 3-6 am is the strongest time to meditate of the day. The subconscious is ripe for maximum clearing and any time in this window of 3 hours is profound.
Sit at your altar or a sacred space and light a candle. Sit before the candle and gaze into the flame. Visualize your life blossoming with great energy and vitality. See the golden flame and the colors contained within. See the flame of light as a light within yourself, preparing for your great rebirth. See every cell of your being ready to receive divine inspiration.
We are in the midst of Eclipse season and if you are needing extra support, I invite you to revisit my journal from last Eclipse season on how you may best thrive in any Eclipse season.
This week's past Superbloodmoon Eclipse was most potent as it was conjunct the Goddess Asteroid Ceres. Ceres is the Great Earth Mother and where she shows up is how we nourish and how we need to be nourished. Ceres is the Goddess of Womb and Tomb.
This Imbolc is most certainly epically special as the veil opened with that Leo Superbloodmoon Lunar Eclipse. Prior to that we had the epic Capricorn New Moon with a serious stellium and the new Venus Star cycle with a tight conjunction to Pluto. Our upoming Aquarius Solar Eclipse is conjunct Juno, Queen of Heavens and a Triple Moon Goddess like Bride.
We are witnessing a palpabale stirring in the Divine Feminine. To be clear the Divine Feminine welcomes ALL at her table: all beings, genders, races, religions, creeds and backgrounds.
Continue to divine, candle gaze and meditate during this season. May you plant your ideas and give them space to germinate with meditation, poetry, song and art. A ritual of early Spring cleaning is a beautiful way to air out and let go of stagnate energy. Give away and donate that which you no longer need in your home that will brighten another's life.
On this Venus Day the Sun is conjunct the Karmic South Node--the dragon's tail inviting us to let go of all that we have been holding on to. This may include people who have been influential leaving your life. Give great thanks and may these transitions be received with ease and grace.
