Blog changes

In an effort to get this blog back on track I have simplified it, deleted some of the attached one-topic blogs
and focused on Sabbats and Esbats, which was the original intent.
Other writings will be in 'stumbling upon the path of the goddess'
and the Borrowed Book of Charms is still active.

Equinox

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.

  3. I really like your altar setup! I sadly have no digital camera so was unable to take a pic of my own... I prefer simple, to-the-point altars like that over the gaudy/flashy stuff. Happy belated Ostara, hope it was a good one!
