Brigid, also known as Brigantia, Brid, Brighid, and Brigit, is the Celtic triple goddess of wide influence. Britain is named for her, and the February 2nd Pagan holiday of the growing light, Candelmas or Candelaria or Imbolg, is also called Brigid. Brigid is goddess of the forge, poetry, and midwifery, and she keeps a sacred well and everburning flame. Modern Catholic nuns of Saint Bridget keep her vigil even today. Brigid was the daughter of Dagda, lord of the mythic Tuatha De Danaan, and married to Bres of the Formors, the dynasty prior to the Tuatha De Danaan, in Irish mythological cycles. Wherever she is known, Brigid seems to be involved as the mother, wife, or daughter of ruling gods and kings, (and she outlives them all) making her a true goddess of sovereignty of the land. Whereas many Triple Goddesses are seen as being of the Maiden, Mother and Crone aspects, Brigid is usually depicted as being three sisters. Brigid oil has three essential oils each appropriate to her triune functions, including true Carnation absolute for the poetry aspect of her nature. Brigid is a favored patroness goddess of many practitioners of Celtic descent or Druidic traditions. Whereas many Celtic deities were local in their influence and worship, Brigid is a true pan-Celtic goddess, and cognates of her name can be found all over the Celtic world as place names. Her name is the root of the English word "bride," and the affectionately derogatory term "old Biddy." Brigid is both a fire and a water goddess, and many practitioners who work these elements often find her becoming involved in their practice.
