Ostara - Happy Spring
Ostara - Happy Spring
Spring is here the Vernal Equinox. Last night's full moon was so beautiful, I went out after midnight and basked in the moon's rays and this morning greeted the Sun and welcomed Spring time into my life. We made egg salad sandwiches for lunch and walked along the yard to look for all the bulbs that are starting to sprout. It's been a long hard winter with lots of snow and coldness, we welcome the rebirth and renewal of spring time. Happy spring and many blessings to all my readers. Here are some spells for Ostara from ADailyTarotYahooGroup.
Ostara, otherwise known as the Vernal Equinox, marks the date when day overcomes night. Plants re-emerge from the earth, the air is filled with birdsong, and animals mate and bear young. Humans feel an overpowering urge to build now, to plant and to fall in love. This powerful time is when winter dreams need to be acted upon. The most potent talisman we have this time of the year is the egg, symbol of rebirth, new beginnings, and growth. Here are some old and new ways to use eggs in your spellwork.
For a new love, take a raw egg and dye it red. Poke holes on either end of the egg with a needle or a small nail. Make the hole on the small end of the egg large enough so that you can insert a crystal and herbs. Blow the contents of the egg out the holes and thoroughly clean out the inside. Insert into the egg a the small rose quartz crystal, rose petals, and a sprinkle of catnip. Visualize a new love entering your life. Glue over the hole with pink tissue paper. You can modify this spell for abundance or any new venture with a change of color, crystal, and herb.
To keep a family together, the eldest member of the clan divides a hard-boiled egg so that each member gets a piece to eat. Throughout one's life, if any member of the family gets lost one must think about those he or she shared the egg with. This will cause the others to think of him or her. The combined physic energies will guide the lost one home.
To ensure the safety and well-being of your household, bury a magically charged egg in each of the four directions. Charge an egg with visions of an abundant harvest and bury it in your garden before you plant. Hang decorated eggs from the trees around your property on Ostara to bring prosperity to your family for the year.
