Ostara, also known as the Vernal or Spring Equinox, celebrates the birth of spring, as the appearance of spring blossoms begin to hail life stirring within the Mother Earth after a long winter.
Ostara is celebrated in March in the Northern Hemisphere, and is the time to embrace new beginnings, hopes, and new relationships. The festival of Eostre (pronounced EES-tra), the lighthearted Anglo-Saxon Goddess, invokes the balance between light days and dark nights. Associated with the Christian Easter holiday, which was modeled after the Pagan celebration, Ostara is known as a time of fertility, abundance, and the birth of new spring animals such as lambs and rabbits.
On this sacred day, witches light new fires at sunrise and rejoice as the festivities begin. Old World Pagan traditions include the ringing of bells, decorating hard-boiled eggs in an array of colorful spring colors, and blessing seeds for spring plantings.
Beautifully poured and witch blessed, each candle is drenched with spring flowers symbolic to Ostara, renewal and the the appearance of spring.
