THE STORY AND MYTH OF BRIGID
Brigid, the Great Mother Goddess of Ireland, is the Celtic Goddess of Inspiration, Fire and the Arts. She brings healing and artistic beauty through her synergy of creative power. Brigid means bright and is the fire of inspiration that creates beauty and art in the world. She was born with a flame ascending from her head, eternally connected to the Universe. Brigid’s flame is tended still today in Kildare by the Brigidine Sisters in her honor.
Brigid offers the energy of both the Sun and Moon, bringing beauty, inspiration, healing, knowledge and skill, as well as access to the divine realm. She brings the fire that stokes life itself. Her hearth fire is associated with the emotional warmth of the family and home.
XIV – ALCHEMY – MYTHICAL GODDESS TAROT
The traditional tarot card in the Aleister Crowley deck is the Art card, which translates to how creativity and art are symbolic of alchemy, and the ability to solve and combine, turning something that was plain, into something that is spectacular. Alchemy is the perfect synergy of ideas and forces that coalesce into art and beauty. Through this fusion of divine inspiration and human skill and talents, artistic creation comes to Earth in blessing.
Brigid is the perfect Goddess to represent the energies of Alchemy and art. She brings the energy, fire and light to use creativity to alchemize a situation, and to dream anew. She brings higher dimensional solutions to move from mundane experiences, into extra-ordinary.
WISDOM OF BRIGID AND HER TEACHINGS
Brigid comes to you now to move out of stuck situations that lack creative light. She urges you to see from a new perspective and light, with the curiosity of an artisan who resolves difficulty through creative flow. Take all the ingredients of your life and throw into the pot of creation, adding the energy of fire, light and release to bring possibility, and then clarity of new form.
With all creation and new life comes a process of sacred destruction. It is the process and journey of letting go of what was before. All alchemy transmutes lower forms of expression into a higher experience… the GOLD. Through beauty comes harmony, from harmony comes peace.
Brigid urges you to use the fires of Creation to dissolve problems and lower energies, combining the energy and wisdom of what is dual, to experience and expanded wholeness. Brigid invites you to the place where you release the old life into the cauldron of creativity, and the fires of the Divine, so you may arise in new form, full of light and wisdom.
“Goddess Brigid of the ascending flame
My Divine Creative Spark,
Show me my gifts of artistic creation
To light my way through the dark.”
