* Imbolc / St. Brigid’s on Feb 2! Mid-Winter Blessings!

2 Feb

Now, as the daylight hours are getting obviously longer, the middle of Winter is soon reached, as well as the midpoint of Aquarius: We’re celebrating Candlemas, Imbolc / Brigid’s Day and Groundhog Day (Feb 2).

In the Gaelic / Celtic Calendar, Imbolc is one of the 4 fixed Power Points of the Zodiac year!

 

In many areas of the Celtic world, this was the Fire Feast of Brigid the Irish goddess of hearth and home.
She is the keeper of the flame, the protector of the home, and a goddess of holy wells and springs. At Imbolc, her many aspects are being acknowledged, especially that of her role as a deity of transformation. As the world awakes from the dark slumber of Winter, it is time to cast off the chill of the past, and welcome the warmth of Spring.

Ahh, goes well together with VENUS entering ARIES on Feb 3!

Blessings for the sacred season of Central Summer!

The Celtic ‘gate of power’ Lammas / Lughnassad is now being celebrated. http://www.thewhitegoddess.co.uk/the_wheel_of_the_year/lammas.asp

Traditionally that’s on Aug 1. Exact mid (15°) Leo would be actually a few days later, Aug 7 / 8.

Central LEO is ‘double LEO’ (centre of the fixed sign, where energy concentrates): Solid Summer!

Many harvest festivals are starting at this time.

And it’s the celebration of CERES the grain goddess.
Presently, Asteroid CERES dwells (since mid July) for a Summer ‘episode’ in TAURUS, goes retro there in early Sept, back to fiery ARIES mid Oct (excellent for planting new seeds…) until into 2017.

The LEO New Moon tomorrow is a cosmic mirror of Lammas too: Planting seeds of bright, joyful self expression from the purity of Heart!

And actually, creativity and co-creation has been activated, with the Full Moon on July 19, on the CAP / AQ ‘Community Building’cusp (MOON) – CAN / LEO  ‘Creativity’ cusp (SUN).

Giuseppe Arcimboldo: Summer

 

I trust your co-creativity sky-rockets, and you are super inspired these days – straight from the Heart. Esp. arising from the area of life that corresponds with the astrological house where LEO is in your chart!
And that the ‘stinger’ from MARS in late, late SCORPIO hasn’t hijacked your process but shown you where, how, and why to go deeper. MARS will cross over the ‘PHOENIX POINT’ into SAG tomorrow! Onward-upward, fueled by the transformational process!

 

The LAMMAS LEO NEW MOON tomorrow Aug 2 (Blog post to follow) will be at 11° LEO.
Live Life Lovingly!
Access the LEO solid warmth-of-heart, and creative power in the area of life where mid LEO is in your chart!
