Sparks of Flame Reading
Imbolc is the Celtic celebration of the end of winter. For many ancient cultures, it marked the beginning of the wheel of the year moving from winter to spring, and was celebrated, and several folk games to encourage romance and love in young couples. It was expected for a family to keep a large fire burning on their hearth for the entire night, symbolic of the return of the sun.
We can derive inspiration from these ancient celebrations to help us refocus our own lives. While we are no longer sowing seeds to grow crops for our families and homesteads, we can still consider every creative, spiritual, and personal project to be something to be something to focus on. We often require a banishment of those energies which do not serve us, and a collection of that which can help us to develop our goals and ideas more thoroughly.
This reading takes the concepts that come with Imbolc to represent the steps of a ritual that would apply to this fire festival. Once we have established what your personal project is that you will be focusing on through this season, we will move into the cleansing, or the burning of that which is impure in the sacred flame: what weighs on you that needs to be shed? Then, we will discuss the awakening of your personal soul spark of creation: how can you best find inspiration for your project? Finally, we analyze how you can nourish your project once it is underway, how you can feed your creation and ensure it is fruitful.
Finally, this reading will come with a small throwing bone oracle reading. Divination for the future outcomes of our efforts, whether that is in regards to crops or relationships, is a typical way to celebrate Imbolc, so this very ancient-feeling form of divination will help us to connect with those ancient energies.
