Rituals ground us

Imbolc tradition

IMG_2028[1]Rituals are important in life.  They can be elaborate or as simple as lighting candles for Imbolc or Candlemas to celebrate the first signs of spring and the return of the sun.

IMG_2037[1]The increased daylight is obvious now.  The ancients celebrated days throughout the year that were markers for the turning of the year’s wheel of life.

IMG_2029[1]This year the rituals will have more import.  I’m no longer just a passenger, I’m at the wheel.  Spring fever - I can feel it to my very marrow.
