Ostara

Altar to contain yellow, green and purple candle, bowl of milk and bowl of honey or sugar.

 

Light a green candle and chant:

 

The Wheel of the Year turns once more,
and the vernal equinox arrives.
Light and dark are equal,
and the soil begins to change.
The earth awakes from its slumber,
and new life springs forth once more.

 

Next, light the yellow candle, representing the sun. As you do so, say:

 

The sun draws ever closer to us,
greeting the earth with its welcoming rays.
Light and dark are equal,
and the sky fills with light and warmth.
The sun warms the land beneath our feet,
and gives life to all in its path.

 

Finally, light the purple candle. This one represents the Divine in our lives.

 

Spring has come! For this, we are thankful!
The Divine is present all around,
in the cool fall of a rain storm,
in the tiny buds of a flower,
in the down of a newborn chick,
in the fertile fields waiting to be planted,
in the sky above us,
and in the earth below us.
We thank the gods, sun, moon and earth for all it has to offer us,
and are so blessed to be alive on this day.
Welcome, life! Welcome, light! Welcome, spring!

 

Mix milk and sugar/honey and pour it in the ground/garden as offering.

I make this offering to the earth,
As thanks for the many blessings I have received,
And those I shall some day receive.
