Happy Imbolc! This is the first planting of spring.
This lesser-known pagan holiday falls exactly halfway between the Winter Solstice (Yule) and the Spring Equinox (Ostara). Imbolc falls between the Wolf Moon in January and the Snow Moon in February. Celebrate the increasing daylight and the impending spring season. This is the perfect time to start thinking about what you want to plant in the coming year… and not just your literal plants, think about wishes, intentions, and goals!
Ritual fires are burned. It is a time for birth, healing and inspiration. This is a popular time for vows of dedication or consecration.
