For our Northern Hemisphere readers, Imbolc is right around the corner already. In just a few days, in fact. Imbolc is a harbinger of spring -- it's that point between Yule and Ostara where it's still bone-chilling cold, but at least the sun is thinking about shining. It's a time to honor Brighid, the hearth goddess, and celebrate fire. Why not set up your Imbolc altar? Here are some tips on how to get started: Setting Up Your Imbolc Altar.
