Imbolc is halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. It symbolizes the coming of spring. The snow has not yet thawed but we can see signs of the forthcoming spring. This is a time of growth and renewal. The dark period is not yet over but we are preparing for the suns rebirth. Lighting candles and fires welcome in the new energy and with a broom we sweep out the old. Whether or not you celebrate these ancient traditions, now is the time to shed your old skin, let go of what is no longer serving you and usher in the amazing new things waiting for you just around the corner. Tomorrow is the new moon which is a fantastic time for manifesting what you want to bring into your life in the coming year.
