Wheel of the Year


Imbolc: The first stirrings of the coming Spring!
Imbolc

February 2


I mbolc (im-bulk), meaning "in the belly", is also known as Oiemelc or "ewes milk" and celebrates the first lactation of the ewes, siginifying the beginning of the lambing season and considered by ancient agrarian cultures as the first sign of the coming spring. This is the time of the year when our days are becoming visibly longer as the Sun spends more and more time in the sky, and the first faint touches of Spring's greenery begin to show. It is a time of beginnings, a time when the first fields are plowed and prepared for the planting.

In many cultures this is also traditionally a time when signs are sought to fortell the next season's bounty. Most popular among these in Western culture is waiting to see if a snake or a groundhog,(both animals which hybernate during cold winters,) would leave their winter den, thereby predicting the length of the remaining Winter. Today we light a candle in every room in the house to chase away the darkness of winter anticipating the warmth of Spring. We cleanse and decorate our altars with the seasons first growth.

This day is Sacred, particularly to the Goddess Bride (Brid, Brigid, Brighid, Brigit, depending on your tradition), the Goddess of Smithcraft, Poetry, Magick, Fire and Light. In some traditions a dolly representing the Goddess is made from the seasons first greenery and carried by the family's youngest maiden from house to house to receive the blessings of the community. That evening, a basket is prepared called the Bride's bed. The dolly is placed in the basket and a white wand is placed in her hand. The basket is then set on the previously smoothed ashes of the hearth until morning. The next day if the ashes are disturbed the Goddess has blessed the house with prosperity for the coming warmer months. If the ashes are not disturbed, it was taken to mean that the Goddess was offended, and an offering must be buried in the ground where two streams meet.

The Wheel turns, and the Sun is gaining strength, as the young God keeps pace. The Goddess renews herself at the Well of Eternal Life, casting aside all memory of the Darkness of Winter, and is once again the Young Maiden. She is again wild and free, cavorting and playing through the budding growth of creation with the God, both of them full of the energy and potential of Life.

Fred West

Fred has been a reader for over 30 years. He got into Tarot accidentally; the cards literally fell into his lap. Having been given the gift of Tarot, he set about learning and studying about them, and found he had a powerful gift as an oracle. He has started to incorporate Lenormand, a french card reading system, into his practice. Lenormand is excellent for when you have a specific question that you would like insight on. He has read all over the country, and has been on several radio shows. He has worked for conventions, events, private clients, and has even read for celebrities.

The Power of Runes


Runes have been used in Northern European lands (Germanic, Scandinavian, and British) since the second century BCE for a variety of purposes. These purposes included writing, branding, protection, magic, and divination. The progression of the Roman Empire and its religious practice eventually rendered the rune systems all but obsolete.

Archaeological studies of the last 200 years have brought the runic systems back into a place of interest. With the growth of the modern neo-Pagan movement and Heathen practice (such as Asatru), runes have made a resurgence in North America and their native lands primarily used for magic and divination.

This class will explore the power of the runes as we connect with them for magical use and as a tool to gain insights from the Gods & Goddesses. We will touch lightly on the history and meanings of the runes then learn how to use them in our practice wisely and effectively.

John Hyatt is a member of the San Diego Pagan Community for over a decade. He is co-founder of Coast Oak Grove (San Diego’s Druid Grove) and co-leader of the Kindred of the Northern Hammer (a Heathen Kindred celebrating the Gods of the Northern lands). He is devoted to Freya and Odin and is currently active in the Lore Program of The Troth.

John is honored to teach, read runes, and lead ritual at The Tree of Life. He believes community to be an essential part of our practice and a great place to start is at The Tree of Life.
