~ The Witching Hour with Lady Rhea ~

Copyright 2020 The Witch’s Lair Occult

I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank Lady Rhea, Rita Segarra, Daisy Orsini and Laurie Bizzarro for a most educational evening. It was most interesting to see how sister witch worked with Santisima Muerte and how the these lovely ladies each shared their knowledge and personal working experience with all that attended. It was beautiful indeed. HAIL SANTISIMA MUERTE and may she continue to bless each and everyone of her devotees.

Imbolc Traditions and Symbols
Brigid Corn Dolly – a very old custom involved making a “Brigid” corn dolly that can be placed in a “Bride’s bed” to bring fertility and good fortune to the home.  If you made a “Corn Mother” at Lammas, you may simply re-use it.  Dress the Corn Mother as a bride in colors of white, red and or gold, and your Harvest Crone transforms herself into the Brigit Spring Bride. Place the Bride in a “Brigit’s bed” along with a priapic wand to symbolize fertility.  A priapic wand is a be-ribbonned fruit wood wand with a pine cone on the end which symbolizes the God.

Brigid’s Bed – to show your hospitality and to encourage the Goddess to spend the  night at your home, create a “Brigid’s Bed” near the hearth fire.  By inviting Brigid to stay overnight in your home you’re symbolically asking that her powers of fertility, blessing and healing be with your family all year long.  A Brigid’s bed can be a pretty wooden or cardboard box, a wicker basket or anything large enough to hold your Brigid corn dolly.  Be sure to decorate it with ribbons, flowers, herbs etc. and place a comfy blanket on the bottom of the bed. Don’t forget to place the priapic wand in the bed so that the Goddess will not be lonely.

Hearthfire  – the hearthfire is sacred to Brigid and is her altar in every home.  At Candlemas in the depth of winter the fire was more important than ever.  It was not allowed to go out and in the evening the fire was smoored ( covered with ash to preserve the hot coals) by the lady of the house

Brigid’s Crosses – are a form of woven straw or rushes symbolizing the Sun and used as talismans to bring fertility, prosperity and protection to the home.  They would be created at Candlemas and hung on the door, near the hearth, under the eaves or in the barn to bring luck and protection.

Burning the Yule Greens– the evergreens for Yuletide decoration are gathered and burned by Candlemas.  It is a symbolic way to let go of the old year and make way for the new.

Springs and Wells – toss coins in wells springs, fountains or any running water as an offering the the Goddess Brigid

So I haven’t been online as much because I have been working on my magickal online courses, of them being a Santisima Muerte Course which I feel that between the methods I have chossen to teach the courses I hope will be a rather successful.

Anyways while going through my emails I received one from Feedspot that reads: ” I would like to personally congratulate you as your blog The Witch’s Lair Occult has been selected by our panelist as one of the Top 70 Witchcraft Blogs & Top 25 Occult Blogs on the web.

I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world. This is the most comprehensive list of Top 70 Witchcraft Blogs & Top 25 Occult Blogs on the internet and I’m honored to have you as part of this!
