Goddess Meditation: Brigid

A Child of Danu

​Brigid is one of the Thuata Dé Danann, the children of Dana, according to Irish mythology. She is associated with the spring season, fertility, healing, poetry and smithcraft. In the course of Christianisation, she was made a Christian saint, Saint Brigid of Kildare. Her saint’s day is the same as the original Pagan festival of Imbolc, associated with the goddess and marking the beginning of spring. Imbolc is usually celebrated on the 1st or 2nd of February or halfway between the winter solstice and spring equinox.

Radiance & Light

In mythology, Brigid was described to have been born at dawn with the exact rising of the sun. Her head was radiant with light and thus, she is associated with sunbeams and warmth, ascended awareness, enlightenment and new beginnings. This solar energy, also heralding spring after the dark winter months also bring hope and renewal.
