OSTARA

March 22nd

Rebirth

The Wheel of the Year now turns to Ostara and the celebration of rebirth, where we honour the Goddess Eostre.


In the Western Hemisphere, this is also known as the Spring or Vernal Equinox. As the wheel turns to this time- even in the shadow of Covid 19 and the toll it has taken- we can still feel some joy and embrace the return of life to the Earth after the long, long darkness of the Winter months. 


All the times on the Wheel of the Year have their profound connection to the eternal life cycle and to the progression of our own soul journey. For me, Ostara is always the one that lifts my soul and my spirits the most.


There is, of course, the connection of the name Ostara and the Goddess Eostre to the Christian festival of Easter. We can also trace the European name of the Goddess Eostre back to her other names of Ishtar and Astarte, in earlier cultures.


The traditional symbols and images of The Goddess and fertility are visible everywhere at the moment – in nature and in wider culture. Eggs, new born chicks, March hares and rabbits being the most obvious and visible examples. If this reads as too Pagan or arcane, then pay a visit to any supermarket or shopping mall at this time on the Wheel of the Year- even in this time of lockdowns and social distancing!  You'll see for yourselves the abundance of Ostara and Goddess symbols on display in the ‘Easter’ section of all the stores.





Our ancient roots in the Old Religion are far more deeply planted in our modern world than we realise...

Rebirth And Ritual 


It uplifts us all to see the bursting forth of new life. Glowing daffodils suddenly appear and the birds begin to sing as dawn arrives earlier. The trees bring forth their buds and blossom. Ostara is that wonderful reminder that rebirth will always happen, even after the darkest of times.....


One of the most traditional of ways to welcome the Spring Equinox is of course, the Spring Cleanse. 


At this time I love to de-clutter my home and to give it a thorough cleanse with water steeped in fresh rosemary and lemon. Rosemary is one of the most powerful natural plants used for psychic protection for yourself and your home. It’s traditionally placed in and around doorways to dispel or ward off bad energy. Lemon oil is one of the best aromatherapy scents for lifting your mood and your spirits. Natural beeswax on furniture will also add a delicious scent and gorgeous natural sheen. We can bring the energy of nature right into our homes with these natural ways to Spring Cleanse.





I always like to make an energetic ritual of the Spring Cleanse by completing it with a thorough smudging of all the rooms with white sage, to dispel any old, stale energy that I no longer needed in my home or my life.


Open your windows after you’ve smudged each room and focus your thoughts on old patterns of behaviour, circumstance or any situations you wish to release. As you then invite in the Spring energy to assist you in birthing the new, you can speak or chant your wishes and affirmations

Reactivate


If being a domestic Goddess or God isn’t your thing, then there many other ways we can embrace the Spring equinox It’s a great time to ‘birth’ new ideas. For example, if you’re in business, try out new approaches, maybe in your advertising or with your business image. In your job, consider asking for that feedback- or even the pay rise- you wish to manifest from a boss or colleague.


This is a very powerful energetic time to focus on creating more abundance around you. We can also make this a time to clean up our health and bodies as well as our homes. A far more appealing prospect than in the cold dark January days! We may not be quite back into 'normal life yet,  but simply getting out into nature and walking is of huge emotional benefit

Embrace

In love, we only have to observe the behaviour of the birds and animals around us to know that this is the most fertile time! If you’re single, maybe it’s time to think about getting out there and meeting potential partners, perhaps in ways you haven’t tried before. The pandemic has made us all more creative about finding romantic connections...


If you’re partnered up, it’s a time to rediscover things about each other or to try new things together that make you see your partner in a different light.

Rebirth your relationship!  

Whichever way you embrace the energy of Ostara, remember to look around you on these lighter mornings and really observe~ even for just a few minutes. The world is waking up again, reminding us that life is a cycle and there is always the opportunity to embrace rebirth in some aspect of our lives, even in these most trying times...


Wishing You Ostara Blessings
