February 24 at 12. 30 pm, UTC, best seen in some places on the globe around sunrise or just after sunset (www.timeanddate.com for the moon rise in your location); the moon is furthest from the earth and so appears the smallest. Called Snow Moon or Hunger Moon in Native North America; yet the Tlingit nation named it Black Bear Moon because it is the time the cubs are born and so life stirs anew.

Welcome to Imbolc, or Oimelc, the first festival of early spring between sunset on January 31 and February 2, when it is told the Celtic maiden goddess Brighid melted the winter snows with her willow wand, to call back the lighter and warmer days. A special Imbolc because it is 1500 years after the death of St Brigid of Kildare in 524 AD, the saint who was linked with the Celtic goddess and the return of her relic to Kildare. Some say the first Brigid nuns may have been the goddesses’ converted priestesses who combined old and new ways and this is a time above all for reconciliation.
