Brigid, Goddess of Fire
In ancient times she was the goddess of fire, spring, fertility, poetry, healing, smithcraft. She is one of the only goddesses who is also associated with Christianity, known as St. Brigid.
We celebrate her on Imbolc (February 1 for the Northern hemisphere), the first of the three fire festivals. Imbolc is a time when we welcome back the warmth and light of the returning sun. While we experience drastically different weather and climates here in the northern hemisphere during the early days of February, we all ache for the first signs of spring. Some of us may witness the first flowers of the season while others are trapped in snowstorms. Wherever you are, Imbolc is a time of transition, from deep rest to reigniting the creative spark within your body, heart, and soul.
Brigid reminds us to tend to our inner creative fire, whether it is just a spark, a gentle flame, or a roaring fire. Our creativity, passion, and hope leads us out of darkness and into light. And while some may dread and others will anxiously await the changing seasons, the duality and cyclical nature reminds us to stay present and to be grateful for where we are - or to be patient, because this too shall pass.
The brass sun charm in the center represents the inner spark, the first embers of spring, of our creative ideas, our passions coming to life. Wear these earrings when you need a boost of inspiration, creativity, passion or when you want to connect to Brigid.
