Imbolc 010

One of the most Sacred Time in the Wheel of the Year, the feast of the flame in honor to the Fire Goddess Briga or Brighid- a warrior Goddess and the Matron of the arts.

For us Filipinos, this Sabbat is best associated to the Feast of the lady of the Candles. In Iloilo, it is one of the biggest feast in our city and perhaps in the entire country. It is the celebration of the Feast of Nuestra SeƱora de la Candelaria, Mary in the aspect of the Lady of the Candles.

For the Filipino Pagan Community, we often celebrate this by making Brighid's Wheel and lighting up candles and bonfires. We would also burn spells this night and would dress candles and do candle magick.

Here in Davao though, it is difficult to look for people that you can work with. Since, there is no group that I can celebrate with last Imbolc, I did a simple ritual to honour the gods.
