Imbolc and the Maze

Sunday, January 30, 2011
I have had an idea buzzing around in my head since the start of the New Year. This idea being to build a maze for Imbolc and to use again at Mabon. Now of course Imbolc is already upon us and there really is no time for that. But I wanted to share my thoughts, anyways.

First on why this idea came to me; Last week I talked about how Imbolc is about plowing the earth to allow for new things to be planted. But I also mentioned how in my children's story that the Sun King goes on a quest to find the answer to the question of how to awaken the sleeping maiden. So of course the idea of a labyrinth has been in my head.

Now as for why I decided to write this article. I actually saw, in the newspaper, a local shop that has a labyrinth behind her store. It isn't a Pagan based store but still people come to walk it and some even decorate stones to lay in the outline of the labyrinth.

They walk to think or meditate. Some even sing and dance their way through the maze. So I wanted to share this idea and the diagram above and get your thoughts.

Blessed Be!
