In honor of the Feast of Saint Brighid, and the festival of Imbolc, I give you:
A triple-deity goddess, each one of Brighid’s aspects represents her reign over poetry, healing and smithery. She is keeper of the holy wells and rivers of healing and rebirth.
Brighid is the goddess of healing—including inner healing, and healing of the spirit and soul—poetry, divination, and prophecy. She represents the sister or virgin aspect of the Great Goddess.
A solar deity, Brighid is the goddess of fire, whether it be candle fire, fires of inspiration, hearth fires, or the sacred flames of creativity—all are identical in her realm.
Brighid is one of the very few deities to retain her relevance, status and impact through the many generations since her origins in ancient history.
Fun fact: The Rivers Brigit in Ireland, Braint in Wales, and Brent in England are all named for her.
