As we immerse ourselves in this highly emotional Leo full moon cycle, that has shades of Cancer threaded though it, we approach Imbolc. This is the pagan Celtic celebration of midwinter dedicated to the Celtic goddess Brigid.

The magical daily round, our daily routine, is highlighted here since we had a very SLOW January start to this year 2013.  February portends a burst of energy and power as we move more fully into this year that shines a bright light on teamwork and community.

Jupiter has turned direct and now abundance is becoming more readily available day by day. The introspective quality of January gives way to action, movement and celebration.

Honoring the seasons is ancient and a way to stay connected to the earth,¬†Gaia, our nourishment, our home. Looking at our home holistically is another celebration in itself because it is a¬†gentle and caring environmental approach to living.¬† ¬†Actually leaving lighter footprints on our home is a decided and deliberate statement of caring for Mother Earth.¬† It is the best New Year’s resolution we can give ourselves, our home and all other beings who reside here.

So this reminder, this celebraton of midwinter, this Imboc is yet another environmental statement of a kinder and gentler way of living.

Let’s embrace it and enjoy our daily round, our daily rituals because they are about to light up with the magic of Brigid! It is time for new ideas and new models while transitioning from hierachy to equality.
