March 20th marks 2011’s Vernal Equinox… the official start of Spring. The winter is officially coming to an end — celebrations are in order. The equinox is held by some cultures to be one of the most spiritually transformative days of the year and has long been celebrated as a time of rebirth and renewal in cultures across the globe.
In Wiccan traditions Ostara, or the Spring Equinox, is an enchanted borderland time outside of time where a magical seam joins dark and light. From this moment on, the Sun God begins his journey across the sky. His light and warmth overtake the darkness of Winter until his power peaks at Summer Solstice in June.
Ostara is a time of new fire. The light and dark are in perfect balance, but the light is growing and the Sun is about to burst forth with new energy. It is a season of fertility and growth.
