Ostara is Coming

Ostara fast approaches, and many Wiccans and Pagans are turning their minds towards celebrating the Spring Equinox. This is the season of new life and rebirth, so any activity that venerates these things is appropriate.

The colors of spring are the colors of birth. Consider light pastels, such as pinks, blues, yellows, or greens. These colors can be work in ritual, used to decorate your space, or even in the foods you cook on this day.

Eggs are a common symbols of Ostara, so consider a meal that includes omlettes or perhaps a quiche. You could decorate Ostara Eggs, or perhaps share the lore of Eostre's Bunnies, maybe even planning an egg hunt.

Spend some time outdoors, basking in the warmth of spring. Meditate on all that spring means to you. Try to take a walk in a wooded area, if you can, and search for signs that life has indeed returned to the earth.

These are only some suggestions for celebrating the Vernal Equinox. Get creative with your gestivities and truly make this season your own.
