The Fire Goddess...
The Celtic Goddess Brigit, daughter of Dagda, is the Fire Goddess. She is also one of the most well-known Celtic Goddesses for having an association with the number three, which was a very important Celtic number.
Some believed she was one sister of three, and the two others were also named Brigit; however, many believe these were just the three sides of the same Goddess. Her sides were healer, smith, and poet.
Brigit had other representations in Irish culture as well. Many saw her as the embodiment of the seasons. In late winter (right before Spring), the Celts would hold the festival of Imbolc or Candlemass as it is called today.
They looked upon the Earth at this time as a woman about to give birth – Brigit being that woman. In the spring, she transferred into the Mother, who looked over the Earth, and then into the later seasons the Earth would begin to die as Brigit ages. When she is reborn the cycle also starts again.
Brigit was a very important Celtic Goddess. So, important that when Christianity began to replace Paganism, there was a St. Brigit, who is believed to be a form of the Goddess. There are many that now speculate that the actual saint never existed at all, but it was just a way of conforming Pagans to Christianity.
