Sunday the 2nd—-I won’t be concerned with “The Super Bowl”;
I’ll be celebrating Imbloc, also known as Brigid’s day (Pronounced Breed)—
This is one of the four Celtic Fire Festivals. It’s to commemorate the changing of the Goddess from the Crone to the Maiden.
It’s a day to honor the rebirth of the sun, and be thankful that the first signs of spring will soon be appearing. It’s also considered Brigid’s birthday; the Goddess of Poetry—Healing—Smithcraft and Mindwifery.
Light some candles, in red or yellow and put out some positive energy.

Tomorrow is considered Hecates night. <3
Hecate is a typically known as a goddess of the Greco-Roman Pantheon, who is associated with magic, witchcraft, necromancy, and crossroads. Hecate’s origins are ancient, with descriptions of her being written about as early as 700 BC. In Greek mythology, Hecate came before even Zeus, being one of the Titans who were the original inhabitants of Mount Olympus. Hecate is often portrayed as one of the midwives who attended Zeus’ birth, and helped hide him from those who wished to kill him.
Many of the goddesses and gods of other cultures were absorbed into Greco-Roman mythology as they explored and conquered, and their own deities took on names and characteristics similar to those of the tribes and cultures they encountered. Hecate seems to be one of those cross-cultural deities. There is evidence that worship of Hecate is even older than that which was chronicled in Rome - there is a temple to her located in what was once called Caria on the west coast of Turkey that dates back to 100 BC. She is often paralleled with the Roman goddess Trivia, who haunted crossroads and graveyards, and was the goddess of sorcery and witchcraft. She is also associated with the ancient Egyptian mid-wife goddess Heqit (also Heket or Hekat), who assisted every morning with the birth of the sun.
Because Hecate is such an ancient goddess, there are many different descriptions and stories surrounding her. She is often depicted as a goddess with three faces. These are sometimes seen as the traditional Maiden, Mother and Crone, but more often the three faces Hecate wears have fearsome visages of a dog, a boar, a serpent or a horse. She is known to be skilled in the art of divination, and able to see the future. She is a protector of women and children, and patroness of women in childbirth. She is a goddess of the night, and of crossroads, so is often seen as the ‘death-crone’ - the one who leads the dying into the peace of the underworld. Such, she is associated with ghosts, infernal spirits, the dead and sorcery or necromancy. Historically, images of Hecate were placed at city gates and personal doorways, to keep out bad spirits. “Hecate’s supper”, offerings of food and drink, were left at any place there was a crossroads.
