Rants Of The  Raven/Ostara  Spring  Equinox

The Spring Equinox is a time when the length of day and night are equal. It is the arrival of spring. In Greek mythology it is the return of Persephone to her Mother Demeter, as she has spent Three Months (or Lunar Cycles) in the Underworld with Hades. It is a time of balance and Earth Magick. It is an energetic festival of life as flowers blooming birds sing and animals produce offspring. It is a time to go within oneself and find harmony within Nature and The Divine, for The Lord of Light begins his flirtatious dance with the Mother. 


Ostara (pronounced  Easter)is one of 8 neopagan sabbats, or holidays, that make up the Wheel of the Year. Along with Ostara, many Wiccans and neopagans observe Beltane, Litha (or summer solstice), Lughnasadh, the autumnal equinox, Samhain, Yule and Imbolc. Ostara may be a contemporary revival of ancient spring festivals. 

Star Goddess

She is the star Goddess  and ancient  and is known by a 1000 names such as Inanna,Dianna Ishta, The Goddess Isis,  Astarte,  Deneter, Gai etc and the seven pointed Faerie Star is her symbol.  So on this Equinox  try to find balance with Earth and Sun Light and Dark. And remember  the Goddess  of Spring and fertility  no matter  what name you call her by and try to find something  Matickal to do every day of the week. May you and your be Blessed  this Ostara.
