Currently Reading: Witchcraft – Raven Grimassi

I’ve given myself homework. And not school homework, but pagan homework. Every night before I turn off the lights to sleep, I read a paragraph or two from one of my “witchy” books. True, I’ve only done this about 3 nights, but I feel like I want to do this, not like I’m forcing myself to do it, which is really good. You have to push yourself if you want to learn something, but it has to be enjoyable at the same time! I’ve read about Samhain and the Winter Solstice and tonight I’ll read about Imbolc! I’m thinking about doing summaries about what I’ve read but I don’t really have the time right now unfortunately.

Goddess of the Week: Brighid

 

Lady Brighid

Lady Brighid of the Bards 
Blessed Fire of Inspiration 
Spark the flames within our hearts
Lead our creative exploration
Lady Brighid hear our song
As we give offerings of praise 
Let your blessings make us strong
that we may serve you all our days

Brighid’s name means Bright Arrow, and She is the Goddess of goddess of fire (the forge and the hearth), poetry, healing, childbirth, and unity. The Sabbat Imbolc coincides with Brighid’s Day, and she is therefore the most celebrated goddess during this sabbat.

Brighid is the daughter of the Dagda, and she was later turned to a christian saint, St. Brigid, by the church. She had two sisters, also named Brighid, and so is a Triple Goddess.

For more information about this wonderful Goddess that I find myself coming back to, look at this british website dedicated to Her;
