Happy Imbolc Week and the riches of ancestral blessings to you all!
The Imbolc-Candlemas ‘festival’ is celebrated during the first few days of February, and the exact-point occurs when the Sun is at 15 degrees of Aquarius. This year, that ‘peak-point’ occurs late on February 3rd or on February 4th, depending on your time zone.
This also initiates whatthe late mythic astrologer Steve Nelson called the Candlemas Hora … a holy time. He said:
“This Mid-Aquarius “power gate” begins the Candlemas Hora, a 15-day period from Feb 3 to 18 when the nature of the New Year becomes illuminated and the vital energies of Nature stir to life.”
Read on for Imbolc Clues and to stir the Divine Flame within you —and the Keeper of the Flame that you may be — in sync with the meaning of this season.

Somehow I got unsubscribed from your blog. That explains why I had not seen posts from you for a while. The problem has been corrected.
