Description

Wicca - This is a call to venture forth from your winter 'cave' and celebrate Imbolc or Imbolg (pronounced without the 'b'), "ewe's milk", represents the time of the quickening of the year, the first foetal stirrings of Spring in the womb of Mother Earth, Papatuanuku. It is the only one of the eight Great Festivals given entirely to the Mother Goddess under many names, Brigid being the central one of the three, each representing a season. Not only the Celts and Druids, but also the Aztecs, Tibetans and Greeks all recognised this time as being one of great importance. For Maori, First Light comes in the second lunar month of the year, Pakawera, described as ruarua huangohingohi when the leaves of all things become shrivelled by frost.
