“go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” -Henry David thoreau

The Earth is warming up and new life is sprouting. The sun is gaining strength as we celebrate this point of balance between light and dark, and our inner and outer world. At Spring Equinox we clear away obstacles, nourish vitality in our minds and bodies, and begin taking action on our dreams and living the life we want. As a season of change, we may encounter the need for endings and new beginnings, make changes to our habits, daily routines, jobs or relationships in order to allow for more growth and self-expression. It can be a challenging time, in that we are often asked to venture out of our comfort zone in some way. But when we gather in ceremony to support each other and nourish our motivations for personal growth and rebirth, it becomes much easier.
Also named Ostara, this holiday celebrates Ostara or Eostre, the Germanic Goddess of the spring and dawn. She represents the aspect of the Goddess known as the Maiden aspect, which I also call Trailblazer energy. It is the youthful, fertile, playful, courageous, adventurous side of us all who helps us out of old stale patterns and enlivens us with the spirit of adventure and new beginnings.
In this circle we will share our experiences of this change of season, and what changes and goals we are working on. We will then do a guided meditation journey to connect with our inner Trailblazer, do a fire ritual to release obstacles and an embodiment ritual to facilitate our rebirth. Then we will do some magickal egg-decorating and feasting in celebration of the new life we are stepping into.
