Happy Imbolc, or Groundhog Day

Posted by on Feb 2, 2019 in Animals, Astrology | 1 comment

Feb 2 marks the solar point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. It’s the pagan holiday of Imbolc, the birthing of the lambs, also called Candlemas. And a time for divination about weather, hence Groundhog Day.

If Candlemas is fair and bright,
winter has another flight.
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
winter will not come again.

If Candlemas Day is bright and clear,
there’ll be two winters in the year.

Wishing you a peaceful Imbolc,

  1. My father taught me that 2nd February is Candlemass. He always said that if the weather is nice on that day winter is coming and if it’s horrible winter is gone. Thanks for the post, you made me smile.
