Imbolc, a traditional Celtic festival steeped in the spirit of awakening, purification, and renewal, heralds the gentle warming of Earth and the lengthening of days. Celebrated on February 1st in the Northern Hemisphere, the term "Imbolc" itself poetically translates to "in the belly of the Mother," reflecting nature's quiet promise as the seeds of spring begin to stir within the womb of Mother Earth.
Central to Imbolc's celebration is its affiliation with the goddess Brigid, a beacon of the divine feminine. This association lends the festival a distinctly feminine aura, celebrating themes of fertility, purification, and rebirth โ€” aspects historically revered and embodied by women. The customs and rituals of Imbolc, therefore, have often revolved around honoring these potent forces of nature and spirit. While Imbolc has roots in women's rites and the veneration of the goddess, its embrace extends beyond gender. It's a universal call to all beings to rejoice in the impending spring, the dawn of the agricultural year, and the quickening of life anew. The festival's essence is a collective breath of anticipation, a shared readiness to welcome and nurture the forthcoming abundance of life.
๐Ÿ”ฎ Engage in traditional practices of foresight and divination, seeking guidance and wisdom for the year ahead. ๐ŸŒฑ Symbolically or literally plant seeds to represent your intentions and dreams for the coming months. ๐Ÿงน Clear out the old, making space both physically and spiritually for new beginnings and blessings.
Those deeply immersed in the spiritual journey of Imbolc may wish to enrich their practices with elements deeply rooted in tradition and symbolism: ๐Ÿ™ Deities: Virgin/Maiden Goddesses (Brigid, Athena, Inanna) and Gods of Love and Fertility (Aengus Og, Eros). ๐Ÿ•ฏ Decorations: straw dolls, brooms, white flowers, Brigitta's crosses, candles, sun wheels. ๐Ÿ’Ž Sacred stones: amethyst, bloodstone, garnet, ruby, onyx, turquoise. ๐ŸŒฟ Plants: evergreens, willow, rosemary, snowdrops, sage, laurel. ๐Ÿ‡ Animals: rams, sheep, deer, otters, robins. ๐ŸŸ  Colors: white, yellow, light green, light blue, lavender. โœจ Scents: basil, laurel, cinnamon, violet, vanilla, myrrh. ๐Ÿ‡ Food and drink: dairy products, seeds, breads, herbal teas, mulled wine, spiced wines. As you observe the customs, engage in the rituals, or simply pause to feel the increasing light, may you find your spirit lifted and your heart ready to receive the blessings of the coming spring. Let us all, in our ways, celebrate the beautiful resurgence of life that Imbolc heralds.

Popular questions

What is the difference between lunar and daylight hours?
Lunar tips and day characteristics in the app are based on lunar days, which can sometimes differ from calendar days. This is because lunar days are determined by the position of the Moon, and they can change independently of calendar days (daylight hours). So, you can read a horoscope for one lunar day and when you check it later, it may change to the next lunar day. Since sometimes the change of lunar day can happen in the middle of the daylight hours. This is the normal behavior of the app, and it is designed to give you unique and personalized information for each lunar day. If you have any specific questions or concerns about horoscope readings, feel free to let us know and we'll do our best to help you further!
How to create a profile and how to log in?
You have several ways to log in to your account through: Google account, Apple ID, Email and Facebook. In order not to lose your profile data (tarot history, calendar, notes, etc.), it's important to use and remember your way of logging in to your account on another device, for example. Also, your registration in the application is automatic after filling out your profile data. You can see your ID if you click on the "Sign in with Apple" button, which is the same as registering your profile data. In the same window, you can log out of your account and then log in with the same ID.

How does the profile restoration process work?
If you delete your account, all your data will disappear in the app, including your date of birth, tarot history, notes, etc. If you delete only the app and then re-upload it, your profile will be populated with your previous birth information. If you didn't delete your account, and logged into the app through your Apple ID, and then logged in also through your Apple ID on another device, your date of birth will be restored, as will your tarot data history, notes, etc. It is important to log into your account using the same login method. If you download the app to another device and hit the restore button, only premium access will be restored, not your profile history. You will need to log in to the app to restore all your data. Under the same login methods.
