Spring is Here!

Now is the time of Ostara also known as Easter, Alban Eiler, Lady Day and the Festival of Trees. Ostrara is the celebration of the Vernal Equinox when day and night come into balance with each other.

The name for this celebration comes from the Teutonic lunar Goddess Eostre. Her chief symbols were the rabbit (for fertility) and the egg (representing the cosmic egg of creation) and she was honored on the Vernal Full Moon. This is where the customs of ‘Easter Eggs’ and the ‘Easter Bunny’ originated.

This is a time of renewal, regeneration and resurrection as the Earth wakes from her long slumber. This is the time of planting, children, and young animals. This is the time when Ostara promises freedom from the dreariness of winter, heralding the return of hope and dreams.
