Brigid is one of my favorite Celtic Goddesses. She is the goddess of the home and hearth, inspiration, poetry, smithcraft, and healing. As a solar deity her attributes are light, inspiration and all skills associated with fire. Although She might not be identified with the physical Sun, She is certainly the benefactress of inner healing and vital energy.
In my depiction of Brigid, the Gaelic above her head translates as “Have a fire of your own”. Brigid serves as a reminder to keep your own inner fire alive and thriving!
