This year, Imbolg falls on February 2nd, as that is the mid-point between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox. This is the time of the Rowan Moon, when we long for winter to be over and begin seeing the first signs of spring. Nowhere is this more evident than the lambing barns, where in the depths of winter the ewes bring new life to the world. The word Imbolg roughly translates as, ‘the time of lactating ewes.’
This year I complied some information on Imbolg for my Study Moot. Some of that information is presented below.
