What is Imbolc?

Imbolc is the third stop on the Wiccan and Pagan Wheel of the Year! Standing for “belly of the Mother”, this third sabbat comes after Yule and before Ostara, and it is the time for realizing potential and making way for the new! The Earth, a.k.a. The Goddess, is pregnant with hope, love, light, and rebirth. The ground is softening after a hard freeze, and the ability for natural will is beginning to push new plants into existence. For Imbolc, the pregnant Earth’s new plants stand for your hopes, dreams, wishes, and will. Wiccans and Pagans alike use the energy of the return of the Goddess and her will to push new dreams into reality! This is a beautiful time for purification, new beginnings, nourishing your dreams, celebrating life, and sewing the seeds of your future!
