OPEN TO ALL :)
Spring is coming soon, and that we only have a few more weeks of winter to go! Have you noticed the sun gets a little brighter, the earth gets a little warmer, and we know that life is quickening within the soil. I can't wait, how about you?
This is a truly special day for Pagans, a high holiday that honors the Triple Goddess Brigit and is one of the eight Sabbats that mark the turning of the Wheel of the Year. Ground-hog day is also observed today.
This holiday incorporates the seasonal divination of the more ancient Imbolc, which uses the movement of a snake rather than the shadow of a ground-hog to divine how much longer winter will remain.
It is the beginning of the Storm Moon and also the time of the Feast of Oya, the Orisha of weather and changes. To the Iroquois people, it is Midwinter Ceremony, a time to bless the fields, tell your dreams, and pay tribute to your ancestors. Today is also the birthday of Marie Laveau II, New Orleans' Voodoo Queen and diviner extraordinaire!
I look forward to seeing you all again!!! Bring your Black Hat,a dish to share and a smile!!! I hope you will all bring a dish to share, so we may enjoy a FEAST to celebrate Brighid and enjoy the blessings of the season!
$12.00 annual fee (payable by PayPal or cash) and $1.00 cash for the tea/coffee fund at Sticks and Stones. This comes out to a mere $2.00 a month! The new Sticks and Stones building is awesome and has plenty of room for us to gather!
See you then.
