Imbolc is a time of hope and renewal; the sun is starting to warm the land, the seeds of creation being sowed, and the rains bring nourishment and life to the lands. I've usually found Imbolc a quiet affair, and one which I prefer to observe by myself. Unfortunately when the Sabbats fall on weekdays (like this one), I find it difficult to find the time to do anything too ceremonial. However, there are some small yet meaningful actions you can take to celebrate this Sabbat!
Celebrating Sabbats which seem to have such an earth and fire focus can feel misplaced as a water witch. But never forget, the waters are needed to bring life into the world. Life originated in the waters of the world, and so don't underestimate it's importance or its place in the Sabbats. Below are some quick and easy, water based ideas, to help you celebrate Imbolc.
