So, I went to my local sarsen and lit some candles. Baked some bread and brought some remaining apple juice I had made from the tree I’m tending to. I also grabbed some grass, berries and small bush flowers from the previous site the stone was at before it was moved just over 100yrs ago. Went at about midnight as I would have missed sunrise. Although I’ve been around old traditions since childhood this is the first time I’d given an offering and libation solo to this stone.
Definitely felt an internal sense of euphoria almost to the point of being overwhelmed, very very unusual for me as I’m normally just chill. On the walk back I heard birdsong as if it were a bright mid-morning, unheard of for 1am. Feeling very blessed and thankful.
Hope everyone else enjoyed their imbolc celebrations, blessing to you all.
I’m in Sussex and my local sarsen is made of sandstone and flint so not the same as the stones from Stonehenge. A lot of the sarsens here were built into church walls to help the pagan to Christian conversion but this one survived that fate.
It has a fairly interesting history but is largely ignored these days. It’s called the Goldstone.
Awen to you,
I’m going to a local sarsen stone that’s been visited since ancient times, will leave an offering and light some candles. Hopefully see the sun rise with the stone.
The sarsen was moved a few hundred yards just over a hundred years ago. Will take some grasses and earth from the original site along with my offering, I thought that would be a nice gesture. If the grass is long enough at the previous site I may build something out of it.
Very pleased to have survived this winter so it will be an occasion of gratitude.
Also new here and looking to listen, commune and develop my current spirituality and connection with nature.
Hope everyone is well.
