There is, indeed, Fire Under the Earth in this locality, at this time. South African Pagans have done a sterling job of turning the Wheel this Imbolc, for you can feel Spring is here.
From migratory birds starting to flock, through almost undetectable pheromones on the air, to the attitude of the human animals, all things conspire to tell us that Brighid’s forge is powering up in the land once again.
My Lady has shed Her leprous white aspect, and is now pale green. Lady of vegetation, Lady of the plants.
My Lord is stirring to full awareness, Lord of the creatures.
The Green and the Red I shall call upon to rebalance my soul when I put my own shoulder to the Wheel on Friday.
