The sun is shining today and I’m starting to feel the Spring energy re-emerging.

It was Imbolc at the start of February and it is soon to be Spring Equinox, on 20th March. While I’m not feeling totally spring-like yet, as I’ve got had a bad cold, I do have a sense that some sort of cleansing is going on within my body, preparing me to return with the light; stronger, more focused, energised and in better health.

Imbolc is celebrated at the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox, on or around 1st February. It’s a Celtic festival that celebrates the awakening of the Earth and the rising life force that initiates fertility and growth. As the flowers start to bud and re-emerge after the cold Winter months, it signifies a time for action and new beginnings, a time to plant seeds for change and a time of re-awakening.

Imbolc is a reminder to ourselves to keep the links to our inner world open and to keep in touch with our intuition and our receptivity as we move further into the outer world.

It’s a good time for spring cleaning and reflection, letting go of the old and initiating change and giving space and time to review our ideas, visions and desires. Whatever we seed now will grow and manifest throughout the seasons of Spring and Summer.

  • What do you want to develop more this year?
  • What are your priorities?
  • What do you want to sweep away or change?
