Blessed Imbolc!

The time around Imbolc has been so eventful the past couple of years! This is the time when new dedicants go through the ritual to begin their year and a day.

Here at the Magickal Cottage spring is well under way! Not only is the green covering the hillsides and flowers are abloom, but there is movement everywhere.

Casting a Circle

Last night my friend and I got together to celebrate Imbolc. We were planning to perform a ritual, and after we centered ourselves, I cast a circle. It had been some time since I had cast a circle, and I realized soon after I began how much I had missed creating sacred space. Casting a […]

Brigid

With Imbolc approaching this week, I thought it would be appropriate to write something about Brigid (aka Bride), the triple goddess who is associated with this Sabbat. I think our impressions of goddesses are very personal, spiritual experiences.
