Wondering how to celebrate Ostara, the Spring Equinox, in Australia? As the invigorating scent of spring fills the air, our land comes alive, embracing the warmth and vibrancy of the season.
Ostara represents rebirth, renewal, and the balance between day and night.
Rooted in traditions of old, it’s a time to honour Mother Earth, appreciate her bounties, and reflect upon the cyclical nature of life. As the world around us blossoms, so does the opportunity to align with nature’s rhythms, finding harmony within ourselves.
Eager to dive deeper into this warming and magical celebration? Here’s a few ways to make the most of Ostara.
Ways to Celebrate Ostara
As the soil warms up and nature comes alive, it’s the perfect opportunity to transplant those seedlings you’ve been nurturing or to plant new ones. Let your garden space brim with vitality and echo the spirit of spring!
Refresh and re-energise your space. Discard old items, sweep away the remnants of yesteryears, and make space for all things new and vibrant. An Ostara altar, adorned with eggs and fresh blooms, could be a beautiful touch to your freshly cleaned space.
Creativity is your ally this Ostara! Paint eggs with symbols of growth and prosperity, weave flower crowns symbolising the return of warmth, or craft sun catchers to celebrate the sun’s increasing strength.
Celebrate Ostara by preparing a lavish meal with seasonal produce. Think fresh salads, citrus-infused dishes, and light desserts. Share this feast with loved ones and toast to the beauty and abundance of the season.
Sunrise or Sunset Gathering
The equinox signifies a balance between day and night. Organise a gathering at dawn or dusk with close ones. Play music, share stories, or simply watch the sun’s journey, reflecting on balance and renewal in your own life.
Reawaken Your Spirit!
As you dance with the dawn, craft with purpose, or feast with loved ones, remember that each act intertwines with nature’s rhythm. Let the balance of the equinox remind you of life’s cyclical beauty. From coast to hinterland, Ostara’s spirit thrives in every blooming flower and sunlit morning. As the season unfolds, let your celebrations resonate deeply, honouring both Earth’s bounty and your own growth.
Until next Ostara, cherish each moment and may we Speak in Spells again soon!
