Bride, Triple Goddess
The Old Irish root of the word Imbolc, the name of the cross-
quarter festival on February 1st-2nd, is i mbolg, in the belly.
In this early spring time, just before lambing season, all of life is held in the womb
of the Mother, pregnant with life force to be birthed as the full abundance of Spring arrives.
Imbolc is sacred to the Goddess Bride (or Brighit/Brid…and Brigantia/Brittania in England)...and Bride
is a multi-talented Goddess, patron of poetry, healing, fires and smithcraft…as well as sacred springs and holy wells.
For this reason, I decided to make a St Brigid’s cross ~ much fascinating detail here if you’d like to make your own ~
and offer it up at Rennaldburn’s spring, hidden away in the woods high above the house.
Here’s a little three-minute video of the experience:
