As portents go, having a “once every 50,000 years” comet come into view and be done by February 1st, as a herald to Imbolc is definitely right up there.
It is predicted to get brighter over the next few days, then dim after February 1st. To see the comet, go to a dark sky location (rural skies) and look to the right of the Little Dipper with binoculars. It will resemble a fuzzy green smudge.
What does it mean? Only those with strong divination skills can say. But for me, personally, I think it is the herald of green things to come. Green symbolizes nature, rebirth, and balance; prosperity and progress.
