Healing, poetry ,smithcraft , divination and prophecy along with these the upholding of women's rights and divine justice.
This is the domain of the Goddess Brigid who is celebrated on Feb 2nd as both Pagan Goddess and Christian Saint.
Think about how these qualities are reflected in your life. Are these lost arts and values?
The world is experiencing a dark period. In such times we may be forced to fall back upon the skills and talents and codes of living that once meant so much to our tribal ancestors. Often I hear people declare "We will not go back!" In relation to many injustices and loss of hard won rights being threatened this is a cry that rings very true! In other cases though perhaps going back is something that we dearly need. What if we went back to a time of tribal interdependence, a time where by necessity we must dream of ways to live outside the norm, invoking the powers of imaginative flights of fancy and brilliant revelations? What if in our desperation reaching for meaning spirit spoke through us and the world around us gained new meaning and magic? What if the voices of millions of women were to join together and...Oh right that last part already happened didn't it? Yes! What an amazing time we are living in that saw multitudes of women and allies for women's and global justice rights coming together around the world to say NO to the forces of oppression and greed!
Sadly many still refuse to see the power and beauty in this. Still for many this is a beginning..or is it a return?
I ask you now on this day and all days..
What will you heal?
What is your inspiration?
What do you forge or create in your life?
What do you see?
How may you honor all women and the Earth our greatest Mother?
How can you support justice?
Brigid was known as a fire Goddess and heralded the coming of Spring with her great light. Wells and the milk of ewes and cows are sacred to her.
Keep your fire and watch closely the sacred well of wisdom. See that all your loved ones and those around you whose lives will be affected are nourished.
Be kind and be just. Be like Brigid :)
