    "The goddess Brigid, presided over the hearth and the forge, over the inspiration and skill of sacred art and craft, and over the world of crops, livestock, and nature. In the Scottish Highlands every morning the fire was kindled with an invocation to Bride:     "I will build the hearth     As Mary would build it.     The encompassment of Bride and of Mary     Guarding the hearth, guarding the floor,     Guarding the household all."

      Saint Bride (1913) by John Duncan via National Galleries of Scotland. According to the legend of the Irish Saint Bride she was transported miraculously to Bethlehem to attend the nativity of Christ. Here two angels carry the white robed saint across the sea. The seascape reflects Duncan's fascination with the Outer Hebrides and the Isle of Iona.

    Brigid, Celtic goddess

    Brighid (pronounced BREED) is the Celtic Goddess of Fire. She rules over many types of fire—the fire of the forge (as Goddess of smithcraft and metal working), the fire of the hearth (as Goddess of healing), and the fire of creativity (as Goddess of poetry). Brighid is seen as a triple Goddess, and she is associated with three different spheres—high (leaping flames, tall forts, wisdom), middle (hearth and home), and low (wells and sacred springs). She is my favorite ❤

    Brigid (“exalted one”), along with her two sisters (also called Brighid), is considered a classic Celtic Triple Goddess. As one of the most popular goddesses worshipped by the Celtic peoples, including the druids, many of her stories and symbology survive in the persona of Saint Brigid. In the living traditions, whether seen as goddess or saint, she is largely associated with the home and hearth and is a favorite of both Pagans and Christians.

    ✯ The Goddess Brigid's Imbolc .. By ~AvalonSky✯

    Imbolc, the Feast of the Goddess Brigid, is celebrated on February 1st. It marks the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox; a time when seeds sprout, spring is on the way, and the light is returning. It is a time to honor Brigid, goddess of fire, poetry, childbirth. It is a celebration of home and hearth. Imbolc is a time to celebrate growth and new beginnings.
