In the Northern Hemisphere, we mark the Spring Equinox also known as Ostara on March 20.

“Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!” — Sitting Bull

Other names for the Spring Equinox are Alban Eilir, Gwyl Canol Gwenwynol, Lady Day, and Ostara.The feel-good factor about this day, however, is that the first official astrological day of spring hints that high temperatures are not far off.

As the winter draws to a close, Native American communities come together to give thanks for having survived the harsh and bitter cold. They offer prayers of gratitude for the struggles they had to overcome and for the new life that spring brings. With the arrival of spring, the land bursts into a riot of colors as plants and animals come back to life. The earth turns green, wildlife thrives, and people are filled with anticipation for the coming of summer, which brings the time of harvest. This season of renewal and rejuvenation is a time of hope, as people look forward to the abundance that the earth will provide. Let us all celebrate with them and be grateful for the blessings that spring brings.

This year it took Ostarsa to get here.
It will still be chilly here for a month or so but I feel so much better knowing that winter/solstice is over.
As the flowers, tree and grass grows so will I.
I rested. I am renewed. Now I need to work hard to enjoy my summer and fall harvest.
Blessed Be lady
