I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Weather Divinations for Imbolc

Imbolc was traditionally a time of weather divination, and the old tradition of watching to see if serpents or badgers came from their winter dens may be a forerunner to the North American Groundhog Day. A Scottish Gaelic proverb about the day is:

Thig an nathair as an toll

Là donn Brìde,

Ged robh trì troighean dhen t-sneachd
Air leac an làir.


"The serpent will come from the hole
On the brown Day of Bríde,
Though there should be three feet of snow
On the flat surface of the ground." 


Imbolc was believed to be the day the Cailleach ... I am so sorry to do this to you, but this post has been moved to my new website, Divination, hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com, and can be found in its entirety here: Weather Divinations for Imbolc. You can read more about the Cailleach hereLà Fhèill Brìghde.
