Spring has just arrived, hurray! Goodbye to my cold, and goodbye to the long dark hours at night. She is my officially most favourite season of the year. Everything is fresh, everything is lively. Even my favourite cologne has her name on it:
Ostara (around 21st March every year), is the Spring Equinox. It is the time when the Sun enters the zodiacal sign Aries. On Ostara the hours of day and night are equal. Light is overtaking darkness, our Mother Earth impels the live creatures to reproduce. It is time to rejoice as it marks the first day of true Spring! The energies of nature subtly shift from the sluggishness of winter to the beautiful expansion of spring.
It is time to delight ourselves in the abundance of nature. Walk the green fields. Buy some flowers. Touch some plants. Connect with their energy and through it, all nature. Visualise yourself travel inside its leaves and stems – from your crown through your arms and fingers into the plant itself. Sense the miraculous processes of life at work within it. Feel the emergence of energies around you and show your gratitude to the wonders of nature.
This is a time of beginnings, of actions, of planting spells for future gains, and of tending your garden.
