February heralds in the season of the Spring Maiden and she is
the Goddess Brigid, the Celtic Goddess, who represents the season
of birthing energies. This energy refreshes the earth in new light
and compassions. A time that stirs the energies of all things as
the bud on the trees break from their sleeping pods and green shoots
begin to sprouts upwards reaching for the new warming sunlight,
so do we as we might approach new ideas and make some new plans
for this time.
Since this time of Imbolic is about initiations you can plan your
rituals around your divination work that you will be doing and your
use of candles are used to imbue a magical purpose or intent. The
alignment with this season you can keep things along these lines
like what scents you use and any herbs you may like to use that
would be appropriate to your ritual work. You can use small crystals
or stones and even write your intent on a piece of paper. Other
objects can be used too to dress the candle at the base of the candle
holder such as a red ribbon for love and passions, seashells for
invoking peacefulness, put a picture on the table where you like
to take a holiday letting the energy of relaxation flow towards

Blue is a calming energy, invoking healing, peace, relaxing, offering
to gain patience, clairvoyance.
Purple is spiritual energy, invoking the fey, mediations and divination.
Black is energy much like the Waning Moon, releases, banishing,
it also absorbs other energies especially negative energy without
it reaching you and heals you by removing what isn’t good
White is energy much like the Full Moon, a cycle of completions,
purifications, and protection, invoking awareness and cleansing
rituals. White colour candles are good for most ritual work. I often
use one white and one candle of the colour of my intentions.
