Imbolc is a Gaelic festival that marks the beginning of Spring. It is the promise of renewal, of hidden potential, of earth awakening and life-force stirring. It is time to let go of the past and to look to the future, clearing out the old, making both outer and inner space for new beginnings. Imbolc is traditionally the great festival and honouring of Brigid, the pagan Goddess of healing, poetry and craft. Read on to learn about the three main symbols of Imbolc.
Shop the Small Swan Charm
The Swan mates for life and represents loyalty, fidelity and faithfulness. Swan feathers are a powerful amulet.
Shop the Kundalini Snake Charm
In Celtic mythology, Brigid was associated with awakening a hibernating serpent which emerged from its lair at Imbolc. Traditionally serpents were associated with creativity and inspiration - the powerful Kundalini energy of the Eastern Mysteries. Paths of earth energy were called Serpent paths and at Imbolc they are stirred from their slumber.
