I'm sure, like me, most of you are pleased to see the signs of spring sneaking their way into the landscape. The tulips are pushing through the softening ground, the robins are fluttering along the grasses [listening with cocked heads for the worms beneath the dirt], and today marks the time when the day and night have found balance once again.
It is a new beginning; a rebirth. Ostara is a time to celebrate fertility and new life. Start your seeds for the garden that awaits you after the frost, paint your eggs and light your candles to chase away the last of the wintery darkness.
"Strength of Sun begins to grow
Seeds in dirt we set to sow
Welcome signs of Spring's rebirth
New life emerges on the Earth"
