Monthly Tea Leaf Forecast for February 2018
Each month, we take a sample from the first batch of our tea of the month club tea, set our intentions, and ask the tea to tell us what we need to know. Tea club members get the full reading, along with lots of other community benefits. Enjoy this summary! This page is updated on/around the 6th of each month.
This month’s tea leaf reading fell around the ancient pagan holiday of Imbolc, sometimes known by more modern religions as St. Brigid’s Day. It’s a time of new beginnings, a celebration of spring and the return of the light, all overseen by the Celtic fertility goddess Brigid.
With this in mind, I included fire and honey — both considered appropriate offerings to Brigid — in the grid to ask for her blessing this month. (I will admit, I actually “borrowed” the honey from my Imbolc altar, where I burn a candle for Brigid. Don’t worry, I returned it to her.)
Heart: Of course we got a heart for February! We all know it as a symbol of love, but that’s not just romantic love — it’s also familial love, friendship, and goodness toward others. The heart symbol says that our need for love and support will be fulfilled, and it’s also a reminder for us to pass our love and support on to others.
