Earth Mother Candle Ritual
By Gerina Dunwich
Imbolc is a time of year
when many people celebrate change and growth, and bid farewell to things no
longer needed. For this spell,
sweep a circle with a broom to symbolically remove the old to make room for the
new. It is also a tradition to burn
candles on this night as an offering to the Earth Mother so that her divine
power of fertility may soon awaken from its winter slumber and bring forth
springtime. Light a green candle
and recite thrice the following incantation:
“Mother Earth, awaken
from your silent winter rest. Let
the springtime goddess of green magic manifest.
Mother Earth, awaken now and hold us to your breast.
We honor thee with love, for we are truly by the blessed.”
