It's time to celebrate Imbolc!
Inbolc is one of the least-known but most-worthwhile celebrations in the cycle of the year, especially because of the fact that it is a fulfillment of the promise made at Samhain.
Remember Samhain? At that time, there was a death but also the promise that an ending by definition means a new beginning, and that new beginning was promised to us! At Yule, what we see as the sun beginning its return journey is marked appropriately in many spiritual paths by the celebration of the birth of a divine child.
For a child born at Yule, we could see Imbolc as the naming done in some paths, or the Briss in the Jewish tradition. In the mundane world, Imbolc's coming is announced by the first plants sticking their fresh sprouts through the snow, and the animals who were cared for over the winter giving birth.
Above all, it is another fulfillment of the promise made by The Divine, on the way to the complete fulfillment shared by Ostara and Beltaine.
