Since December 2016, I have been working with the Goddess Brighid. Brighid is the celtic fire goddess who is rules creativity and motivation. I wrote a previous blog post about my experiences with her that I will share down below.
On December 16/17 I had the most beautiful dream, here is what I recorded
“I had a beautiful dream last night about a well covered in greenery and flowers and the clearest water I have ever seen, and today on my timeline, saw a goddess card reading for the Irish goddess Brigid who is a creative goddess and is known to live in wells. I woke up this morning with such a strong desire to do more research on my Pisces Midheaven, in which I am meant to have a creative career.”
Since we are in the time of Imbolc, I really wanted to work with the goddess energy of Brigid, who I do feel is one of my guides, and a goddess archetype I need to work with.
I know since having that dream, a well of creativity has been awakened inside of me. It’s also no coincidence that this dream occurred on the cusp of the 16th and 17th of December, which was the threshold of 2016 energy leaving and 2017 energy coming in. I really do feel that 2017 is going to be a highly creative year for me and a year when I need to embrace my bohemian spirit and just go for it!
In honour of Imbolc which celebrates the fiery goddess Brigid, I bought a red hydrangea plant to symbolize the creativity and inspiration she can bestow upon us.
Since February 2017, I vowed to pursue my dreams whole-heartedly, and embrace my creativity. I participated in a meditation with the New Age Hipster in March called ‘March Night of Love and Light with Saint Brighid.’ I visualized my eternal flame being lit within and extending its flames throughout my entire being and aura. Right after the meditation, I had burnt my toast, and everything that I touched felt very hot. I knew from that point forward, my creativity was on fire.
This year all of our major planetary configurations are Fire alignments, and we are in the year of the Fire Rooster. As someone who has Fire as my second dominant element along with Air, this year has been a blessing. Expressing my creativity has been difficult at times, since all of my Fire houses contain watery planets. But I have tapped into an incredible drive that I have never felt before. I have even stopped working with blue crystals and now only work with red crystals (My favourites include, Carnelian, Garnet, Mookite Jasper, Amber, Red Aventurine, Poppy Jasper).
It was around the time of Imbolc back in February when I invoked the spirit of Brighid. It was at the time during our two eclipses, that I walked away from some pretty important things in my life in order to pursue my passions fully and completely. Since Brighid is a goddess connected to Spring, and I was born during the Spring Equinox, I do feel that she is my patron goddess.
I started off the year watching everything around come crashing down. Now, 7 months later, I have not only seen my creativity blossom, but I have created an incredible foundation for my New Age career.
Thank you Brighid
