Candlemass or Imbolc
For good or bad we have received our portion of light to last through the coming year. It lies dormant within us like a medicine that we have taken but it has not hit the bloodstream. As the days become longer the energy flow through the earth is reversing. A purging process needs to take place very much like priming a pump.
This happens at the first full moon after the winter solstice. Fortunately this year January 3rd is the full moon and this is approaching quickly. We will feel the lingering effects of the winter solstice and the Christmas Holidays through the New Year's celebration.
Throughout the coming month it will be a gathering of these new forces in preparation for shooting them forth as the first new life energies of spring.
After the 3rd of January this new energy will hit our systems and we will feel it subjectively within ourselves. The first compression or pulsing does not happen until February 2nd. That is when this energy will shoot through our bodies and the earth for the first time.
In the meantime it will churn within us and activate dormant areas preparing them for new life and activity. This will not always be pleasant.
