February 2 is Candlemas or Brigit’s Day. It is a fire festival. The Celtic Goddess Brigit, is a deity of fire and fertility. She is also the Goddess of Communication. This celebration reminds us that spring is coming soon, and that we only have a few more weeks of winter to go. The sun gets a little brighter…here is a ritual and a tapestry I created for BRIGIT from our oracle book “Goddess, Guide Me!”. Enjoy!
In order to remain flexible, or when you must chose from two or more courses of action, this ritual will allow you to be comfortable with your indecision and to seek inspiration from other sources. Let Mother Nature, the most widely known aspect of The Great Goddess, take a hand.
Select two ribbons of different colors to represent your two courses of action stretching out into time and write the choices upon them. Tie them to a tree branch, symbol of the Sacred Grove of The Goddess and recite the following incantation three times as you do so:
I take these ribbons
And tie them to a tree.
Which ever way the wind blows
Reveals my path to me.
In a few days, return to the tree and check the ribbons. As you approach the ribbons, take careful note if the condition of the words written upon them has changed or if their position has changed. The ribbon whose words are clearer to you is the one to make. If there is no change then postpone your decision. Stay flexible.
