The Equinox is a special time. Balance. The balance between major shifts in season. The earth in balance, pausing in its swinging motion; every living thing responds.
The Solstices are days of change, beginnings, endings. The Equinoxes are days of balance, harmony, peace.
The Goddess Ostara, accompanied by the pastel colors of spring, the hare and the egg is honored during spring equinox.
Earlier, at Imbolc, Brigid carved the beginning of spring out of the cold of winter with her wisdom and her sword.
Ostara walks a gentler path, accompanied by the hare rather than the sword and brings the balance of this moment with her.
My altar this year is a simple green candle, a small statue of a hare and some spring flowers. Dragon's Blood incense for cleansing.
