A point of perfect balance on the journey through the Wheel of the Year. Night and day are of equal length and in perfect equilibrium – dark and light, masculine and feminine, inner and outer, in balance. But the year is now waxing and at this moment light defeats the dark. The natural world is coming alive, the Sun is gaining in strength and the days are becoming longer and warmer. The gentle whispered promise of Imbolc is fulfilled in the evident and abundant fertility of the Earth at Ostara. It is time for the hopes of Imbolc to become action. The energy is expansive and exuberant. It is the first day of Spring!
Ostara takes its name after the Germanic goddess, Eostre/Ostara, who was traditionally honoured in the month of April with festivals to celebrate fertility, renewal and re-birth. It was from Eostre that the Christian celebration of Easter evolved, and indeed the naming of the hormone Eostrogen, essential to women’s fertility.
Join Kallima to welcome the Spring Equinox at our Ostara Moot as we celebrate this wonderful Sabbat.
This gathering will include:
– Full Ostara Group Ritual
Opening Circle. Everyone has a part to play within the ritual.
– Ostara Craft (1 Ostara beeswax candle rolling & an Ostara inspired craft)
– Ostara Feast
The foods of Ostara are eggs, honey cakes, fruits of the season, cakes, biscuits and cheeses. You can also include foods made of seeds, such as sunflower, pumpkin, sesame seeds and pine nuts. We welcome and invite you to bring any of these to share at our feast.
– Circle Closing
Why not come dressed for the occasion?
Ostara Colours are Green, yellow, blue and purple and pastel colours, representing the Spring flowers.
