So, here we are at the beginning of February, and the month kicks of with 3 very powerful days. All three are to do with purification and renewal – and associated muchly with our Ffraed.
- St. Ffraed’s Day: 1st February (has intriguing connections to St. Valentine’s Day, via the Julian Calendar, if you think about it).
- Candlemas – Gŵyl Fair y Canhwyllau & the “Feast of the
Presentation of Christ in the Temple”: 2nd February, traditionally when candles for the year are blessed. This day honours the saint via a celebration of her relic at the Church of St. John the Baptist, Lisbon, in Portugal – interesting, seeing as how the Portuguese courts
have denounced the PCR tests – as has the W.H.O., grudgingly, – and surprise, surprise is being studiously ignored by govern-ments and complicit media by the way, in case you didn’t know. As Goddess of sovereignty, Ffraed/ Bride will always stand up for honesty and human rights.
Gwyl Ffraed (the Cymric name for Imbolc), 3rd February this year, at 14.40 GMT. when the sun attains 15° Aquarius. Gwyl Ffraed, if we desire to be spiritually authentic, begins at sunset on the 2nd February and lasts until sunset on 3rd February. This is pre-Christian natural timing – before the calendar, which is not nature oriented, was invented.
Happy Gwyl Ffraed
