Imbolc this year came at a time when the earth felt cold and barren. Will the Earth remain this way forever? This Sabbat reminded us of the promise the Gods made to us…the Earth will awake…the Quickening is happening underneath the surface…deep within the Earth. We must have Faith! During our Imbolc Ritual we witness the Crone becoming the Maiden once more, for her cycle never ends. We also blessed the candles for the coming year.
