Ostara Rituals and Celebrations




 The Spring Equinox is upon us at last, the weather is being carried in by warmer winds and flowers are starting to finally sprout out of the cold earth. The tell-tale signs are all there, heralding that Ostara is just around the corner. Ostara, Eostre, are names that this equinox is associated with, and the rituals that are performed on this holiday celebrate everything that resonates spring. However, there's more to this holiday than just the predecessor to what we now know as Easter.
