Spring Equinox

Spring Equinox, Ostara, Eostre, Easter, Vernal Equinox

By Tara Sutphen

21st March   Spring Equinox marks the mid-point of the Waxing Year, the nights and days are balanced once again; the time when Kore, (Persephone) was believed to have returned from the Underworld where she had ruled throughout the Winter. The spark of light, born at Winter Solstice has reached maturity, and from here onwards, the days progressively grow longer than the nights. 

Western culture proclaims this the first day of Spring.Older traditions called the Spring Equinox, Ostara; the time of the festivals of the Grecian Goddess, Eostre, and the Germanic Ostara, both fertility Goddesses of Dawn. These influenced the naming of the modern-day Easter Holiday. New greenery bursts forth from sleeping seeds in the countryside, as metaphorically, pagans also plant their own seeds for future goals, future projects and growth at this time.Decorated eggs, being symbols of fertility are symbolic of Ostara. In days gone, Europeans gave gifts of decorated eggs to new brides, in the hope that they would bear many children. Similarly, bowls filled with eggs were given to farm workers by the farmer’s wife, to ensure a rich harvest. 

Most all cultures see the egg as a symbol of Life; the actual home of the Soul. In Russia, decorated eggs are still given as gifts to loved ones and buried in graves to ensure rebirth. The women gathered the eggs only from hens which were around a rooster and decorated them, allowing no one to watch them work as they transferred the goodness of the household to the designs on the eggs, thus keeping evil away. Dyes were mixed to secret family recipes and special blessings placed on each egg.

Colors of Ostara Eggs:

• White:

• Purity

• Yellow:

• Wisdom, a successful Harvest, or Spirituality

• Green:

• Spring, rebirth, wealth, youth, growth, happiness

• Blue:

• Good health, clear skies

• Orange:

• Power endurance, ambition, courage

• Red:

• Happiness, hope, passion, nobility, bravery, enthusiasm, love

• Brown:

• Enrichment, good harvest, happiness

• Purple:

• Faith, trust, power

• Pink:

• Success, friendship, love

• Black:

• Remembrance Lore:

The custom of eating Hot Cross Buns also has pagan origins. The Saxons ate buns that were marked with a cross in honor of Eostre; Ancient Greeks consumed these types of buns in their celebrations of Artemis, Goddess of the hunt, and the Egyptians ate a similar cake in their worship of the Goddess Isis.

There are conflicting ideas as to what the cross symbol represents. One suggestion is that it is a Christianisation of horn symbols that were stamped on cakes to represent an ox, which used to be sacrificed at the time of the Spring Equinox. Another theory relates to Moon worship; the bun representing the full Moon, and the cross, its four quarters. Christianity gave new meanings to the symbolism of the buns, saying the cross represented the Crucifixion Cross. Thus, superstitions arose crediting these buns as being charms against evil, so after Good Friday, people would save one or two of them to hang in their homes as amulets. During the festival season and indeed, for a long time afterwards, fishermen would carry these Easter buns in their boats, for protection.

The Spring Equinox defines the season where Spring reaches it’s peak, with the powers of light increasing. The God of Light, (Llew), now gains victory over his twin, the God of Darkness. Llew was reborn at the Winter Solstice and is now old and strong enough to vanquish his rival twin and mate with his Mother Goddess. The great Mother Goddess, who returned to her Virgin aspect at Imbolc, welcomes the young Sun God’s attentions and conceives a child. The child will be born nine months from now, at the next Winter Solstice, when the cycle closes, only to begin anew.

• The Easter Bunny is another symbol which has obvious links to fertility, rebirth, and the abundance of life which is evident in Spring.

• Eostre was a playful Goddess whose reign over the earth began in Spring when the Sun King journeyed across the sky in his chariot, bringing the end of Winter. Eostre came down to Earth then, appearing as a beautiful maiden with a basket of bright colorful eggs. Eostre’s magical companion was a rabbit who accompanied her as she brought new life to dying plants and flowers by hiding the eggs in the fields.

Full Worm Moon

Full Worm Moon 

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Worm Super Moon (Native American) will culminate on March 9, 2020 10:48AM PT / 1:48PM ET (Farmers Almanac). A Super Moon means the Moon is nearer to earth.

The Worm Moon sharpens our focus. Sometimes we make swift judgements that lead to regrets and also to some disgrace. Be careful what you say and the actions you take at this time. The aspects of every full moon gently guides us toward clean up of all sorts of human situations. Pisces sun allows us to look at hidden and sometimes painful things while the Virgo full moon is reminding us to get to work and  center ourselves. Our health is important and what are you missing in your human development.

The Super Moon is a personal spotlight on you. There is immeasurable understanding or scrutiny at this time. You are feeling the intensity. Remember this can challenge you to feel more alive and align to your true purpose. You are being shown how strong you are on the earth plane. Instead of shirking responsibilities, you welcome them.

 You’re looking into the meaning of life and a deeper resonance of thought. You are tuning in instead of tuning out.  You are ready finally, you want to handle living on earth. Family becomes important. Thinking in short term goals are in your conscious mind. Your subconscious has harbored doubt and suspicion about your abilities. You became untrusting, but you can become stronger now. You’re finding out it’s not about how other people act or conduct their lives. It’s all about how you proceed … and living well is on the agenda.

Journal Questions:

When did you start to doubt yourself.

Where did life start to get in the way.

Full Snow Super Moon

 

Full Snow Super Moon 

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Snow Super Moon (Native American) will culminate on February 8, 2020 11:33 PM PT /February 9, 2020 2:33 AM ET (Farmers Almanac). A Super Moon means the Moon is nearer to earth.

The Snow Moon enlivens our focus to have some respite and enjoy ourselves again. The aspects of every full moon gently guides us toward clean up of all sorts of human situations. Aquarius sun allows us to look at the possibilities of all things while the Leo full moon brings our center onto ourselves and how we are playing our part in our development.

The Super Moon is a personal spotlight on you. There is a sweeter glow and immeasurable understanding at this time. All of a sudden you feel you are more socially accepted. You are being asked to come back to your creative self and begin to relax again.

How do we get into the enthusiastic part of ourselves. We’re usually in some way trying to participate in a society of competitors and how they see us. Let’s look at our self. The first things we see in people are their clothing, facial make-up and outer attributes. So, when we’re being perceived how do we like others to comprehend us. We have our distinctions, proprieties, our appearance, style, clothes, makeup, hair, mannerisms, our voices and interests. We can be self-conscious sometimes. There is no need to be uneasy, you actually live in a perfect world within you and your relationship with the totality. You have come to earth to design your life, and development. 

Our individuality, expressions, and outer personality can shine. We can communicate kindly, as it’s much better than being brash or outspoken. When we take time to take a breath before we speak or allow for some time if we’ve been hurt or put off, we do much better by not making further mistakes or embroiling a situation that may not need our attention at all. We want to be seen in the best light possible. It’s important to make good impressions that are lasting and to honor others feelings. Because we want our feelings to be validated. If you feel your on earth for the wrong reasons, you’re supposed to fix those feelings. When we gravitate to allowing our souls to feel intact, our heart follows. We get back what we give out.

Life is full of promise. It’s time to nurture yourself while attracting others. Knowing not to give up on yourself because of social conditioning, imperfect parents, bad choices or break-ups. It takes courage to grow and change, moving toward your next stage of innovation. Learn to value your needs and desires while becoming aware of a whole and loving universe. It is our natural world to be vibrant in thought, word, and deeds. You are to shine and glimmer in the world. Remember this is your month, so throw back your shoulders and put your best foot forward, sorce to be…

Journal Questions:

Write a paragraph on where on your skills and talents.

When did you start to doubt yourself.

Where did life start to get in the way.

Have you been paying enough attention to your health.

Have you been paying enough attention to your confidence and self-worth.

Do you take time to be good at everything you do.

Are you taking less than?

  • Love
  • Career
  • Job
  • Health
  • Relationships
  • Friendships
  • Happiness
  • Exercise

 What do you need to make your wishes come true

  • Spiritually
  • Emotionally
  • Intellectually
  • Materially
  • Physically

 ——The most appealing attribute about people is how they speak to you and the feeling of receptivity and acknowledgment. Know that in the glow of this moon, it isn’t just the outside to work on but it’s also your inside. When you say things to others with a bit of sincerity, it goes a long way. You are shaped by your past references and behavioral guide. Try to open to the new you, where you’re working on the finest qualities of yourself.

—-The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

 This Palindrome day on the 33rd day of the year and with 333 days left until 2021 means: 

All the disagreements, everything that didn’t make sense, and irrevocable upsets are now locked in the past as you move forward through this new portal of time. You are looking toward your future. The spark of light in the middle of winter allows you to awaken again as the crystallin in your eyes come to a full picture of a new self. It’s like all the reading, the learning and the questioning has now brought you to an understanding. You are ready to find what you are looking for again. As with 20/20 vision you are open to see, the path is bright and the choices are not as fuzzy as before. It’s a time of 2nd chances, mirrors and mirroring, and synchronicity. You are offered the resonance of grace.
