Imbolc is the launch of Spring and the return of the Sun. It is the celebration festival of the end of winter, the dawn of the agricultural season and the approaching light half of the year.
This celebration likewise marks the metamorphosis stage of the threefold Goddess energies from those of Crone to Maiden. She is a triple Goddess, so we worship her in all her phases. This is a chance for connecting with her and taking care of the lighting of her spiritual fire.
At this time of year, Wiccans will light numerous candles, white for Brigid to remind us of the passing of winter and the entrance into spring. This is a great point for initiations, whether they are they into covens or self-initiations.
