Goddess Brigid


Brigid, also known as Brigit, Brighid, and Bride, is an Irish goddess of the Sacred Flame. 

Brigid has three faces, each of which represents her authority over poetry, healing, and smithcraft. 

  • She is the guardian of the sacred wells and rivers of healing and rebirth, as well as the sacred fires of creation, and is known as the Great Goddess. 
  • Imbolc, her festival, is observed on February 1st or 2nd, when holy bonfires are kept blazing all evening to summon the sun from its slumber. 
  • Brigid is the patroness of poets and priestesses, as well as the mother of innovations and handicrafts. 
  • She is also the wise lady of healing. 
  • The goddess Brigid was transformed into Saint Brigid of Kildare when Christian ideas entered the ancient world.
