Daily Inspiration: Candlemas by Mary Woods

February 2nd is one of the great cross-quarter days, which make up the wheel of the year. It falls midway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox and in many traditions is considered the beginning of spring. It’s time to creep out of the hibernation of winter, cautiously, like the ground hog who emerges on this day to check his shadow. It’s a time of germination. This is a traditional time of new beginnings. The triple numbers 222 in the numerology of the day of February 2nd, which also means the beginning of a new cycle.

The ancient Celts celebrated this holiday called Imbolic, as the feast of St Brigid, who began her life as a pagan goddess and ended up as a Christian saint. Worshiped as a triple goddess, Brigid was a patroness of fire, fertility, agriculture, creativity, and women. Additionally, this year, February 2nd falls on a Tuesday, the day that Brigid is honored as a Spirit Guide. The Catholic Church later made this date a Christian holiday dedicated to the feast of the Purification of Mary. Since the Jewish women went through a purification ceremony 40 days after the birth of a male child, February 2nd was celebrated as 40 days after Christmas, the birth of Jesus. This Holy day became known as Candlemas, which began the custom of bringing beeswax candles to church to be blessed by a priest. Since Lent can begin as early as February 4th, some Candlemas customs became associated with Shrove Tuesday (Mardi Gras) and the beginning of Lent, which is a time of purification.

Candlemas is celebrated today as the return of the light, by the lighting of candles all over your home. Traditional foods for Candlemas are crepes, pancakes, and cakes; all grain-based foods in honor of Brigid, the goddess of grain. If you have a fireplace, clean out your hearth and then light a new fire. Sit around the fire and reflect on your hopes for the coming year. What do you hope to accomplish? What are you passionate about? What seeds do you wish to plant?

This is a good time to make a commitment to a goal, like a New Year’s Resolution, or for sharing a creative work. Since Candlemas is a time of new beginnings, this is a good day to ritually celebrate all things new. If you plan a ceremony, use these two powerful symbols: fire and water. For instance, wash your hands and face in salt water, which is especially purifying. Light a candle as you make your pledge. Incorporate the third symbol of this holiday; seeds, by planting a seed or bulb in a pot to symbolize your commitment, or by blessing a bowl or packet of seeds that you will plant later.

“Love Is The Message…Pass It Around”

With Love, Mary

Energy of the Day 2-2-2016

I drew this graphic originally for a Valentine card. It best describes the heart of the matter! We are sometimes called the "Rainbow Warriors" and the "Tribe of Many Colors", yet we are all together in this circle of life, where love is really what makes the world go round. Since ideas are strengthened by sharing, this is the message we want to pass around.
