Ostara ritual

Published March 20, 2017 by Lunapo

Yesterday morning, I lead my first Sabbat with CotE. It was so awesome. Witchlette was with me each step of the way and it would not have been as Magickal without her presence. 

The altar was decked a ring of flowers encircling a basket of colored eggs and a small white bunny sat a top the mighty pile. The four Elements were noted with a physical representation within a small colored tealight holder: acorn and pinecone for Earth, water for Water, some granite, a metamorphic stone created from heat below the earth, and air within Air. 

Upon arrival, and seeing the beauty of Lake Wheeler to our immidiately east, we switched up the Cardinal Directions for the Quarters to have Water in East and Earth in West, for the thickest woods were in that direction. Then, we moved Air to the North for the still chilly wind. Serendipitously, I did not include directions in my writing so it was an easy switch. 
During Quarter Calls, Witchlette and I each held an end of my besom and the Caller held the middle. 

The ritual included some lore, a meditation, and a gift of seeds in a plastic egg. Witchlette covered the gift almost on her own. 

The ritual itself is included on the ritual page, linked above.

Ostara blessings

Published March 20, 2017 by Lunapo

March 20th at 6:28 am marks the Vernal Equinox and is officially the start of spring. 

As the sun rises this morn, so too does Ostara rise from her slumber and offer warm blessings to all life. Ancient goddess of the Sun, she brings new life with growth and plants and animals alike.
