February 2nd marks the ancient Celtic festival of Imbolc celebrating the midpoint between Winter Solstice (December 21) and Spring Equinox (March 21). Pagan/Wiccan believers honor this special day of hope between the frozen and dark longest night of the year and the promise of the virile fertility of Spring. Many of our contemporary religious and cultural days are deeply rooted within the annual rhythms of Nature… Imbolc, Ground Hog Day, Candlemas Day, St Brigid’s Day… all interconnected within the season of lactating ewes.

When conditions are sufficient, a cloud transforms into rain, snow, or hail. The cloud has never been born and it will never die. This insight of signlessness and interbeing helps us recognize that all lives continue in different forms. Nothing is created, nothing is destroyed, everything is in transformation.
