Merry meet all,
Tonight is the New Moon. The moon will be in Aquarius. It’s great that the New Moon occurs so close to Imbolc. Imbolc is the first of the three spring festivals. Imbolc is about new beginnings, which is what a new moon represents.
The moon grows fuller after Imbolc. I plan to make a candle in honor of Imbolc. I want to make the candle white, and I’m gathering the supplies I’ll need. I have lots of herbs and cooking oil. I also have lots of wick and other things. I hope the candle turns out beautiful. I promise to keep you all posted. I also plan to heavily clean my apartment and erect an Imbolc-ish altar. I’m attending a public Imbolc ritual hopefully, if all goes well.
I’d love to hear your plans for Imbolc. Have you started your seeds and plants yet? Felt a burst of creativity? Getting excited over the increased daylight hours? You’re feeling the first stirrings of spring. I get like that too at this time of year. Winter won’t last forever.
This year, something special is happening! The Earth Spirit Society is participating with the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week. Here is a link to more information about the Interfaith Harmony Week: http://worldinterfaithharmonyweek.com. The Earth Spirit Society is a group that seek to learn from each other and celebrate the eight Sabbats of the year. “… a group of individuals from a mix of religious traditions and spiritual paths largely composed of neo-Pagans and eclectic individuals that work together to serve and educate our communities.” http://essns.org/we_are.html (credit). It is awesome that Earth Spirit Society has the opportunity to be connected with the Interfaith Harmony Week. It shows that positive change has been created.
I look forward to the celebration! I will keep you posted about that as well.
Enjoy Imbolc and the New Moon!
