Ostara~The Spring Equinox

Merry Ostara! 



Ostara Affirmation

I am the blossom of Spring and the sweet flower unfolding.

I am the leafy stalk that pushes through the ground to 
greet the brightness of the day.

I hold the power of creation in my hands, 
as I stand at the threshold between darkness and light.

I am balance and beauty becoming.

Blessed Be.

Today begins the waxing time of the year - 
time to set things in motion.

Every year on Ostara, I write myself an intention letter.

I fill it will my hopes, dreams, and goals for the year.
I open last year's letter, see where I stand,
and then I write my new letter for the year.

I found that this is the perfect time for me if I want to
implement any big changes in my life.

Now is the time to plant the seeds you wish to grow.

What do you wish to plant this year?

What growth would you like to see in your life?


Ostara is the time.
