Alban Eiler - "Light of the Earth"

Alban Eiler ("Light of the Earth") is the first fire festival of the year, celebrating the return of the Sun and the vibrant rousing of life after Winter. Ancient Celts believed that on the Vernal Equinox, the light and the dark, the day and the night, both sides of everything, are on equal footing; thus is it a magical day of powerful possibilities, transformations, and discoveries. Push beyond the limitations of your darkness, your doubt, your private winter, and come out into the light. Plant the seeds of your future in the fertile matrix within. It is Alban Eiler.
