On this day Goddess Brigit steps through the golden dawn and the Quickening begins. All of Her children in the green world start to awaken. Seed and bulb, root and vine will feel Winter receding in subtle ways imperceptible to what is left of human instinct and Earth consciousness.
Gardeners and Witches know this stirring of new life as the Great Crone Hecate gradually withdraws Her mantle of cold and snowy white to make room for the Maiden’s green and glowing Spring.
The Fae precede Brigit with drum and cymbal, flute and chime playing the music that will coax the Sun closer to the soil. In the fullness of time as the Earth warms the Great Mother will spread Her arms and bring forth the richness of blossom and bloom to decorate Her terra cotta robes. Thus the Wheel of the Year turns.
