Imbolc Message from Kate

Imbolc Blessings, Beautiful People!

One of the lesser known sabbats that marks the wheel of the year is Imbolc – one of my very favorites! January can feel like it’s three months long. So I’m often thrilled when February arrives, and with it, Imbolc. This auspicious day that marks the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox denotes new beginning, renewed hope, awakening and deep prayer for what is sacred to our future wellbeing.

This can be worldly or internal - whether you're wishing for a shift in perception, a bright, prosperous new occupation, completion of a project, fresh love, or miraculous healing, these are the days to bellow out your prayers.  Under the frozen ground of winter, seeds are awakening and coming into creation. The divine forces at will are aching to make our dreams come true - for the highest good of all.

In truth, during this era of great turmoil, it is our responsibility to dream BIG– not only for ourselves but for our community and our world at large. We may want to be more generous of heart than ever before, as our brothers and sisters all over the world need prayers as much as we do as we petition the Divine.
Here is what I have been contemplating as we navigate our way through the first chapter of a new calendar year:

A massive expansion is in progress. The astrologers tell us that the planets have aligned for further harmonization and awakening. Imbolc celebrates these great possibilities emerging from beyond the darkness. It is time to detach from our individual and collective fears, limited belief systems and trust our birthright to be divinely guided, protected recipients of miracles.

It’s important to be grateful for the blessings we have been given and toacknowledge the impact our choices have on others. Our ability to manifest love in our heart is infinite– we only need to continue feeding the heart with love. Our fulfilled wishes and desires not only impact ourselves–but the entire web of life. Each individual is an expression of one universal collective consciousness. So we can't afford to be selfish or self-serving. Our creations and manifestations will spread to others, benefit and inspire them. As we are influenced by others, they are influenced by us. It is, therefore, our responsibility to be courageous and kind, giving and supportive.

These are my thoughts and intentions to share with you this Imbolc. Together we are invincible and capable of creating a better, more peace and love filled world - may great blessings rain upon us all!

With Love, Peace and Magik,


Wild Geese 

You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves.

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.

Meanwhile the world goes on.

Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain

are moving across the landscapes,

over the prairies and the deep trees,

the mountains and the rivers.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,

are heading home again.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

the world offers itself to your imagination,

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –

over and over announcing your place

in the family of things.
