Come celebrate the blossoming of spring as the wheel turns toward Ostara, or Eostre, which is the origin of the words Easter and estrogen. Eostre is an ancient Germanic Goddess of fertility, associated with hares and eggs. In the Priestess of Avalon tradition we honor the ripeness of this time as the awakening of the Mother of Fire. She is the green fire in the earth that brings forth spring flowers, She is the warmth of the sun, and the fire of the stars.
This season invites the energies of rebirth and renewal into our lives. During this time we honor the ancient Bear Goddess Artha, who brings courage, power, protection, passion, joy, and creativity. In this ritual we will awaken the fire within and empower that which we desire to birth in our lives.
Please dress in the color green! For the altar, bring an item that represents something you desire to energize in your life.
