By February, most of us are tired of the cold, snowy season. Imbolc 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, the earth gets a little warmer, and we know that life is quickening within the soil. There are a number of different ways to celebrate this Sabbat, but first, you may want to read up on Imbolc History.
It's Imbolc, and that's the Sabbat where many Pagans choose to honor the Celtic goddess Brighid, in her many aspects. However, other than having a giant statue of Brighid on your altar, there are a number of ways you can set up for the season. Depending on how much space you have, you can try some or even all of these ideas–obviously, someone using a bookshelf as an altar will have less flexibility than someone using a table, but use what calls to you most. 

Traditionally, the colors of red and white are associated with Brighid. The white is the color of the blanket of snow, and the red symbolizes the rising sun. In some traditions, the red is connected with the blood of life. Brighid is also tied to the color green, both for the green mantle she wears and for the life growing beneath the earth. Decorate your altar with a white cloth, and drape a swath of red across it. Add green Traditionally, the colors of red and white are associated with Brighid.

You may also choose to use colors representative of the upcoming spring season — pastel colors like lavender, pale pink, light green, and robin-egg blue.


The Beginnings of New Life

Altar decor should reflect the theme of the Sabbat. Because Imbolc is a harbinger of spring, any plants that symbolize the new growth are appropriate. Add potted bulbs–don't worry if they're blooming yet–and spring flowers such as forsythia, crocus, daffodils, and snowdrops. If you don't have much luck planting bulbs, think about making a Brighid's crown as a centerpiece–it combines flowers and candles together.

Brighid is, after all, a goddess of the Celtic peoples, so it's always appropriate to add some sort of Celtic design to your altar. Consider adding a Brighid's cross or any other item incorporating Celtic knotwork. If you happen to have a Celtic cross, don't worry about the fact that it's also a Christian symbol–if it feels right on your altar, go ahead and add it.
Interestingly, Brigid is one of very few Celtic deities who has made her way into African traditional religions. In Haitian Vodoun and the New Orleans Voodoo religion, she assimilated into Maman Brigitte when Scottish and Irish indentured servants — mostly women — were transported to the Caribbean and North America. If your magical path is rooted in an ATR, you can work with Brighid in her guise of Maman Brigitte during the Imbolc season.


Other Symbols of Brighid
Cauldrons or chalices: she's often connected to sacred wells and springs, due to her association with healing watersA small anvil or hammer: Brighid is the goddess of smithcraftA Brighid corn doll and Priapic wandSacred animals such as cows, sheep or swansA goddess statue: you can find some beautiful statuary of Brighid, or of other spring deities in your traditionA book of poetry, or a poem you've written: Brighid is the patroness of poetsFaeries: in some traditions, Brighid is the sister of the FaeHealing herbs: she's often connected to healing ritesBaked goods, especially those made with eggs and dairy productsLots of candles, or a cauldron with a small fire in it; as the goddess of domesticity and the hearth, she is associated with fire and braziers

Be sure to place your altar in a spot where you'll be able to see it and work with it–even if it's just a quick acknowledgement–during the Sabbat season.


Although traditionally Imbolc is associated with Brighid, the Irish goddess of hearth and home, there are a number of other deities who are represented at this time of year. Thanks to Valentine's Day, many gods and goddesses of love and fertility are honored at this time. From the Italian Aradia and Celtic Aenghus Og to Venus and Vesta of Rome, this season is connected to a number of gods and goddesses

Scotland's Shetland Islands have a rich Viking heritage, and in fact were a part of Norway for some five centuries. As such, the people who live there have a culture that is a unique blend of Scandinavian and Scottish. The town of Lerwick seems to be the home of Up Helly Aa, which is a relatively modern celebration that traces its roots back to the Shetlands' Pagan origins.

During the Regency period and the years following the Napoleonic Wars, Lerwick was the home of many returning soldiers and sailors, most of whom were looking for a good party.

It became a rowdy place, particularly during the week after Christmas, and by the 1840s, celebrations usually involved setting lots of things on fire. At some point, burning tar barrels were introduced into the fun, and this led to plenty of injury and destruction.

By the 1870s, a group of young people decided that the post-Christmas shindig would be a lot more entertaining if it were organized, and so the first Up-Helly-Aa celebration was begun. They pushed it back to the end of January and introduced a torchlight procession. A decade or so later the Viking theme emerged into Up-Helly-Aa, and the festival started to include a flaming longship each year.

Although the event seems to have taken a short break during the World War II years, it resumed in 1949 and has run ever since.

In addition to the Viking longship, there is a lot of planning involved in the celebration, which is held on the last Tuesday of January (the next day is a public holiday, to allow for recovery time). One of the biggest parts of the festival is the costume of the Guizer Jarl, the Chief Guizer, who appears each year as a character from the Norse sagas. Thousands of spectators come to watch the festivities, and hundreds of male residents dress in Viking gear and storm through the streets.

Although Up-Helly-Aa is a modern invention, it's clear that the residents of Lerwick and the rest of the Shetland Islands embrace it as a tribute to their Norse ancestry. It's got fire, food, and lots of drinking–the perfect way for any Viking to celebrate the season!

Yule is the time of year when Pagans around the world celebrate the Winter Solstice. If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, this will be on or around December 21, but if you're below the Equator, your Yule celebration will fall in June. This Sabbat is considered the longest night of the year, and following Yule, the sun begins its long journey back to earth. Try some or even all of these ideas — obviously, space may be a limiting factor for some, but use what calls to you most


Colors of the Season
Winter is here, and even if the snow hasn't fallen yet, there's a definite chill in the air. Use cold colors to decorate your altar, such as blues and silvers and whites. Also find ways to include the reds, whites and greens of the season. Evergreen boughs never go out of style, so add some dark greens as well.
In modern Pagan magical practice, red is often associated with passion and sexuality. However, for some people, red indicates prosperity. In chakra work, red is connected with the root chakra, located at the base of the spine. Holistic Healing Expert Phylameana Iila Desy says, "This chakra is the grounding force that allows us to connect to the earth energies and empower our beings."

If you're using white on your altar at Yule, consider incorporating it into rituals that focus on purification, or your own spiritual development. Hang white snowflakes and stars around your home as a way of keeping the spiritual environment clean. Add plump white pillows filled with herbs to your couch, to create a quiet, sacred space for your meditation. Since winter solstice is the season of the sun, gold is often associated with solar power and energy. If your tradition honors the return of the sun, why not hang some gold suns around your house as a tribute?
Use a gold candle to represent the sun on your altar.

Cover your altar with a cloth in a cool color, and then add candles in a variety of different wintery shades. Use candles in silvers and golds — and sparkle is always good too!


Symbols of Winter

Yule is a Sabbat that reflects the return of the sun, so add solar symbols to your altar. Gold discs, yellow candles, anything bright and shiny can represent the sun. Some people even get a large pillar candle, inscribe it with solar symbols, and designate it as their sun candle. You can also add evergreen boughs, sprigs of holly, pinecones, a Yule log, and even Santa Claus. Consider antlers or reindeer, along with other symbols of fertility.

Try incorporating sacred plants associated with the winter solstice as well. Evergreen boughs like pines, fir, juniper and cedar are all part of the evergreen family, and they’re typically associated with themes of protection and prosperity, as well as that of a continuation of life and renewal. Hang a sprig of holly in your house to ensure good luck and safety to your family. Wear it as a charm, or make holly water (which you probably read as holy water!) by soaking leaves overnight in spring water under a full moon. Use birch branches to craft your own besom for magical workings, and in spells and rituals related to enchantments, renewal, purification, fresh starts and new beginnings. 

Fruit and nuts: add bowls of winter nuts, like walnuts, pecans, and hazelnuts, or fresh fruit such as oranges and apples, to your altarMistletoe, which symbolizes fertility and abundance, is often associated with the winter holidays around the worldSnowflakes, icicles, or even a bowl of snow can come in handy for wintertime magicCandy canes: although they're typically associated with the Christmas holiday, candy canes can be utilized in magic as a way to direct energyBells are often included in Pagan practice as a way of driving away evil spirits, but you can also use them as a method of bringing harmony to a magical spaceSun wheels and other solar symbols are a great way to establish your connection to the sun as it begins its long journey back to the earth

When Baldur began to have dreams of his death, Frigg went around to everything in the world and secured from each of them an oath to not harm her son. Confident in Baldur’s invincibility, the gods amused themselves by throwing weapons and any random thing they could find at Baldur and watching them bounce off of him, leaving him utterly unscathed. yet she thought thatt missltoe was to small to hurt her son so Frigg didn't bother with asking. Loki straightaway made a spear from the mistletoe and convinced the blind god Hodr to throw it at Baldur. The projectile pierced the god, and he fell down dead.

The anguished gods then ordained that one of them should go to the underworld to see if there was any way Baldur could be retrieved from the clutches of the death goddess, Hel. Hermod, another one of Odin’s many sons, agreed to make this journey, and, mounting Odin’s steed, Sleipnir, he rode down the world-tree until he came to its dark and damp roots, wherein lies Hel’s abode. When he arrived, he found his brother, pale and grim, sitting in the seat of honor next to Hel. Hermod implored the dreadful goddess to release Baldur, and after much persuasion, she replied that she would give him up if and only if everything in the world would weep for Baldur – to prove, in other words, that he was as universally beloved as Hermod claimed.

The whole world did indeed weep for the generous son of Odin – all, that is, save one creature. The giantess Þökk (“Thanks”), generally assumed to be Loki in disguise, callously refused to perform the act that would secure Baldur’s return. And so Baldur was doomed to remain with Hel in her joyless realm

Niflheim, Muspelheim, Asgard, Midgard, Jotunheim, Vanaheim, Alfheim, Svartalfheim, Helheim. The nine worlds are held in the branches and roots of the world tree Yggdrasil. These realms are the home of different kinds of beings, such as Asgard the home of the Gods and Goddesses, or Jotumheim the home of the giants. The first two realms, Niflheim and Muspelheim were created out of Ginnungagap. The rest of the realms were created out of Ymir’s body by Odin and his two brothers during the creation of the world.

Ginnungagap is the great yawning void of emptiness that existed before the cosmos was created.


Niflheim (Old Norse: “Niðavellir”) means (“Mist home” or “Mist World”), and it is the darkest and coldest region of all the realms. Niflheim is one of the two first realms and it is placed in the northern region of Ginnungagap.

The eldest spring in the world called Hvergelmir “bubbling boiling spring” is located in Niflheim and it is protected by the huge dragon called Nidhug (Old Norse: Níðhöggr).

It is said that all cold rivers come from the spring Hvergelmir, and it is said to be the source of the eleven rivers (Élivágar). The spring is the origin of all that is living and the place where every living being will go back.. The water from Élivágar flowed down the mountains to the plains of Ginnungagap, where it solidified to frost and ice, which gradually formed a very dense layer. As the world tree Yggdrasil started to grow, it stretched one of its three large roots far into Niflheim and drew water from the spring Hvergelmir.

Niflheim was a cold and dark place, nothing could grow there, and it consisted only of ice, snow, and frost. It was here that the two beings, Audhumbla, and Ymir would shape the fate of all beings.
