Various Imbolc Rituals

Arianna's Imbolc Rite

Place snowflakes, white flowers, and crystals around the altar and worship area. You can also use melted snow in the cauldron. You need an orange candle anointed with one of the following oils: cinnamon, frankincense, or rosemary.

Setup your worship area and altar. Light the candles and incense. Cast the circle. Invoke the Deities and spirits of the elements.

Then say something similar to the following:

As these lights shine,
In the honor of the rebirth of our Lord.
I celebrate life!
I celebrate my Lord and Lady!

Then light the orange candle from the red candle or Southern candle. As you walk slowly clockwise around the circle with the orange candle say:

While Earth sleeps it's winter sleep,
As all life awaits the coming warmth,
My Lord of the Sun is reborn,
Blessed be the Mother Goddess who gives life,
Hail and Welcome O, Great God!

Stand before the altar with the orange candle and visualize your life growing with renewed energy and creativity.

You can now do divination or spells. Celebrate the Simple Feast and release the circle.

You are now done.
