Greetings at Imbolc ~
This time of year is so special to me. If you stand on the Earth and listen, you can hear the quiet stirrings of springtime gently pushing up to the surface.
In Irish Mythology, Goddess Brigid is the Goddess of Fire and is associated with poetry, healing, and child birth. I feel Brigid emanates the quiet power of the Sacred Feminine so well for us and invites us to harmonize and resonate with the Power of Mother Nature.
If you think of the enormous power behind the riveting words in a poem....the intense feelings taking place within the author of the poem, or the strength that is behind any type of healing, and the thrust of feminine power that pushes a baby out into the world during childbirth, this is the Power of Goddess Brigid.
There is an oracle deck, Goddess Guidance by Doreen Virtue that is comprised of cards with the names of Goddesses in each one and a phrase. The card in this particular deck that gives the reader the most motivation and a push is the one titled; Goddess Brigid and says, "Don't back down!" This card exemplifies the quiet power of the Goddess perfectly.
This February ask yourself, where are you feeling the most amount of Power coming through in your life? Zero in on it and have a conversation with yourself about the insights you are receiving and the gentle nudges of wintertime that are now becoming quite obvious pointers to you at this time. With the recent Super, Blue, Full Moon in the fiery sign of Leo, on the Total Lunar eclipse, the Universe has rolled out the Red Carpet for you to achieve your goals and dreams. Follow the advise of Brigit and don't back down! See your vision through to completion by the fall equinox.
Wishing You a Blessed Imbolc and May the Power of Brigid be with you!
Kaira and everyone at Temple of the Oracle
