Black Imbolc

One of the themes associated with Imbolc is purification especially with fire. This is more the purification of an item over an open fire and not the leaping over bonfires more associated with Beltane. This is also an important time of the year for initiations and re- establishing the connection with your chosen path. Imbolc is also associated with the light. Imbolc takes place at the peak of winter, the midpoint between the winter solstice and spring equinox. The days are now growing longer, the light is returning, and the promise of new life are all celebrated at Imbolc. The returning of the light become symbolised in the lighting of candles which become part of the Christian celebration of Candlemas.
