In pagan mythology Imbolc marks the recovery of the Goddess as she sleeps on after the birth of the Sun God, and she acknowledges his growing maturity as he gains strength to become the new light of the year. The name Imbolc is derived from the Gaelic word “Oimelc” (which means “ewes milk”), and appropriately so for this is the lambing season a time when many of our herd animals have either given birth or their wombs are expectantly swollen. “All thoughts, all passions, all delights Whatever stirs this mortal frame End.

Lord Vishnu Lord Vishnu By Stephen Knapp Lord Vishnu is the all-pervasive Lord who expands into everything. He is the maintainer of the universe and the complete cosmic creation. He is called Vishnu because He overcomes all.1 He represents sattva-guna, or the mode of goodness by which everything is sustained. He is also called Narayana, which means the shelter, resting place or ultimate goal of all living entities. References to the glories of Lord Vishnu are found in such early books as the Rig-veda. “The gods be gracious unto us even from the place whence Vishnu strode, through the seven regions of the earth. A similar reference to Lord Vishnu’s abode and His pastime as Vamanadeva is found in the Rig-veda (1.154.1-5). Another quote that shows Lord Vishnu’s superiority over the demigods reads like so: “Far-shining, widely famed, going Thy wonted way, fed with the oil, be helpful, Mitra-like, to us. Lord Vishnu is often portrayed resting on the huge serpent of Sesha.

Hecate | Sacred Wicca Hecate is a Goddess shrouded in mystery, for there is continuing debate about Her name, origin and character. There are few legends about Her, and no fixed genealogy. Some say that Hecate is the daughter of Erebus and Nyx, ageless Goddess of the night, while others believe that She is one of the Furies or the last surviving Titan except for Zeus. It's likely that Hecate’s attributed birth changed as different social groups adopted Her worship, but no Greek Clan or Tribe ever claimed decent from Hecate. Hecate probably originated in the mythology of the Karians in southwest Asia Minor, and was integrated into Greek religion around the sixth century BCE. Hecate’s name has several possible meanings. An alternative derivation, 'most shining one', is borne out in representations of Hecate from the forth century BCE which show a young goddess of both beauty & power, carrying a torch & wearing a headdress of stars. Hecate is sometimes referred to a triple goddess. Snakes: Dogs: Night of Hecate
