THE WHEEL OF THE YEAR

Here I feature posts from My Blog on how and when we can mark and celebrate The Wheel Of The Year

Read how the most primal and ancient of our traditions still connect to our 21st Century lives


OSTARA

March 21st

Celebrating Rebirth


The Wheel of the Year now turns to Ostara. This is also known as the Spring or Vernal Equinox. This time of rebirth is when we honour the Goddess Eostre. We can trace the European name of the Goddess Eostre back to her names of Ishtar and Astarte, in earlier cultures.

There is, of course, the connection of the name Ostara and the Goddess Eostre to the Christian festival of Easter.


Here in the Western Hemisphere, we joyfully embrace the return of life to the Earth after the long darkness of the Winter months. 



It uplifts us to see this burst of renewed life. Glowing daffodils suddenly appear and the birds sing as dawn arrives earlier. The trees bring forth new buds and blossom. 


Ostara is that wonderful reminder that rebirth will always happen, even after the darkest of times





The traditional symbols and images of The Goddess and of fertility are visible everywhere 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.

See for yourselves the abundance of Ostara, Goddess and fertility 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......


Ways we can embrace the energy of Ostara

One of the most traditional is the Spring Cleanse. At this time I love to de-clutter my home and to give a thorough cleanse with water steeped in fresh rosemary and lemons. Rosemary is one of the most powerful natural plants used for psychic protection for yourself and your home. It's traditionally placed around doorways to dispel or ward off bad energy. 

Lemon oil is also one of the best aromatherapy scents for lifting your mood and your spirits. The use of natural beeswax on furniture will also add a delicious scent, along with the gorgeous natural sheen it will give. We can bring the energy of nature right into our homes with these ways to Spring Cleanse.


Refresh....

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's no longer needed in my home or in 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

Revitalize....

It's a lovely energetic touch to light yellow or orange candles around your home. These help to embed the energy of Spring into your  surroundings and also connect to the energy of the solar plexus and sacral chakras of the physical and etheric body.


Do remember to make sure that sage sticks and candles are extinguished when you've finished your Spring Cleanse



Reactivate....




If domestic chores are not your thing then Spring Equinox is also 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! Simply getting out into nature and walking is great for you, or maybe going even further and finally getting back to the gym or the pool!

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.

If you're partnered up, it's the perfect 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 choose to embrace the energy of Ostara, remember to look around you on these lighter mornings and 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.
