To a belated blessed Imbolc full moon!

Celebrations do not have to be elaborate or big, most times simply lighting a candle will do. And isn’t that a pretty way of witching up a glass? Of course you know me, I don’t do crafts. We bought the glass as is, with a few flowers inside. But I imagine if you have some leftover lace or pretty ribbons, you could easily dress up any candle holder as you need it. Very handy if you can’t get to the “sacred rainbow candle store” in time.

Imbolc marks the last bit of winter. The days are getting lighter, but the cold still lingers, and for those relying on their immediate surroundings food would get ever scarcer until well into spring. It’s the end of a long race, where people may be more than ready to give up, mutter, “screw it” and put whatever they were hoping to do on hold … just to survive. This is why the Imbolc candle is a reminder to focus on the light and keep in mind that winter won’t last forever … but maybe don’t hold your breath for the first spring flowers just yet.

    Happiest Belated Imbolc to you. This year, I went for the candle and a bit of cleaning, too. I usually make candles for the holiday, but I was just too tired.

      I bet you were, with all the things you got on your plate … Don’t forget to schedule an appointment to rest!

      Fortunately there is no such thing as being a “bad pagan” … I mean, one could be a bad person and still be a proper pagan. (Not saying you are a bad person, of course. ^^ )

        Some people might say I am LOL.
