MEANING: It is time for you to be inspired and start writing. Many people around you see you as an inspiring person. You are learning not to retreat from your efforts and you can create your world by following your heart! This card is very powerful and symbolizes that you are a creator and co-creator in all aspects of your life. You are on your way!
INTERPRETATION: Bridget is the Celtic goddess of fire, healing, fertility, poetry, cattle, and patroness of smiths. She is the Lady of the Sacred Flame, the Flame of Inspiration, the Flame of Creative Consciousness. Bridget is the "Bringer of Prosperity," Goddess of Fertility, New Growth and Birth. The word Bridget itself signified an inspiration and motivation to perform well and excel in every field. Her healing powers made her a goddess and people worship the flame as the ‘Bridget's flame' as one of her forms. She is worshipped for her healing powers and this is evident with the huge number of healing wells present all over Ireland. It is believed that anyone drinking water from these wells is cured of all their mental and physical illnesses and attains peace of mind. Bridget is a Triple Goddess, but not in the usual Maiden, Mother and Crone sense, although she is celebrated as the spring Maiden on her special feast day of Imbolc, at the start of February. She has three aspects; one as poet and muse of inspiration and occult knowledge, one as goddess of smithcraft, and one as a healer and goddess of medicine. All three aspects are united through the symbolism of fire in one ageless goddess.
Brigid, Celtic Goddess
I have added some information for you about your Goddess Guide
"Brigid, the Celtic goddess of fire (the forge and the hearth), poetry, healing, childbirth, and unity, is celebrated in many European countries. She is known by many names, including that of Saint Brigid who is, perhaps, the most powerful religious figure in Irish history... The Feast Day of Brigid, known as Imbolc, is celebrated at the start of February, midway through the winter. Like the goddess herself, it is meant to give us hope, to remind us that spring is on its way. The lessons of this complex and widely beloved goddess are many. The Celtic goddess Brigid lends us her creativity and inspiration, but also reminds us to keep our traditions alive and whole. These are gifts that can sustain us through any circumstance.
Her fire is the spark of life."
