Imbolc celebrates the gradual awakening of the earth, as the light of the sun strengthens.

The first early blooms of the season

Imbolc is equated with the waxing crescent moon
The herald of Imbolc in country Australia, the golden-yellow blooms of wattle, symbol of the returning sun
The Goddess Awakens
