Ostara has survived through the ages. The goddess' name Eostre evolved into Easter to suit the Christian movement through the world, but the importance of a spring celebration never changes. The symbols of spring that are sacred to Eostre, the hare and the egg are still symbols of this celebration even if most Christian celebrants to not realize their origins or meaning.
Symbols and rituals handed down through the ages have survived to be enjoyed in modern times in our re-establishment of old beliefs.
Enjoy and celebrate as Eostre drags spring back into our lives.
Open all the windows and smudge and sweep all the trapped negativity out into the world to disperse and disappear. Find early spring food to enjoy, try a light wine, wine cooler, wine punch. Or fresh citrus drinks. Celebrate the new in your life.
Make an altar or a wreath to honor Eostre and make it the center of your celebration.
I made this wreath a few years ago and have not felt the urge to replace it since. It will hang in the house today and after today I will hang it on the front door to welcome the season.
Welcome Eostre and Welcome Spring
