The Imbolc Vow
The Imbolc Vow turns what we might fear to be self-indulgence into a sacred promise to the God and Goddess. Take this vow before a candle you’ve made yourself, or in the chilly dawn of an Imbolc morning as soon as you can see the sun.
The Wheel turns again and Spring returns.
Warmer’s the rain; Sun brighter burns.
The daring sprout its thrusts does make;
And I, devout, so undertake.
From the belly, from the mind,
Imbolc’s spell as a vow shall bind.
What once I sought I now shall bring,
and make, from thought, a certain thing.
