Tarot Invocation and Divination for Brigid

Invocation can be a magickal act unto itself, meant to bring strength, healing and attunement. Invocation can also be an important part of a ceremony.

 Tarot cards can strengthen the magick of your invocation.

If you are celebrating the approaching turn of the Wheel, on your own or with a group, here is a way to use tarot in your invocation and ritual.

Whether you call it Imbolg, Imbolc, Brigid, Candlemas or Groundhog’s Day, this cross-quarter day between the Winter Solstice and the Vernal Equinox marks the very first signs of spring. The four tarot Aces, indicating new beginnings as the seed, source and essence of each element, are appropriate tools for invocation.

Hold each Ace to your heart, breathing in its energy, and welcoming a new beginning as spring emerges. Then, place it on the altar as you move to the next element.

Let the Ace of Swords, and the element of Air, bring new ability to communicate, to discern truth and to maintain clarity.

Let the Ace of Wands, and the element of Fire, bring new energy, new passion and new inspiration.

Let the Ace of Cups, and the element of Water, bring fresh healing and hope to your heart.

Let the Ace of Pentacles, and the element of Earth, bring a new opportunity for prosperity and wellness in the coming spring.

You may use the Queen of Wands to invoke Brigid. Again, hold the card to your heart as you say your invocation, and then place the card on your altar.

Here is an invocation that uses the Queen of Wands as Brigid for personal transformation.

Hail, Brigid, Queen of Fire!
As I await the coming spring, accept me at your forge.
Give me your gift of transformation.
Transform my sorrow to joy, my weakness to strength, and my grief to inspiration.
Let your hammer strike me, and transform my fear to faith.

If you wish, you may continue your ritual with a divination, using just the five cards used for invocation, the four Aces and the Queen of Wands.

The question for the divination is this.

Which energy should I strive to work with most closely over the next six weeks?

If you get the Queen of Wands, Brigid herself has called you to work with her.

If you get an Ace, make it’s element a priority in your meditation and study until the next turn of the Wheel.
