Celebrating The Spring Equinox

Happy Ostara/Spring Equinox my southern dwelling friends!  The actual moment is 24 hours away at the time of writing this (it will be the 23rd of September 11:04am AEST), but the weather today feels like ✨spring✨, it’s 21C with blue skies and the lovelist breeze.  It’s supposedly going to be raining again tomorrow, so I’m getting into the spirit of it all today.

Today, all over the world, we experience the perfect balance of day and night. In the southern hemisphere, it’s the beginning of lighter and longer days ahead.

New life is well underway. Flowers are blooming, animated by the rising and quickening energy.

In folklore, today’s the day Persephone returned from her time in the “underworld” (symbolic of autumn and winter) with new wisdom to share.  For us, this seasonal moment is an apt time to pause and reflect on what wisdom and insight we have gathered from the past six months, and then ask…

How am I going to put these insights into action?

What do I need to gather or let go of to nurture them into being?

Be clear on what direction you’re intending on going in so that you can catch the rising wave and flow right in its direction. Some ideas to embrace this moment of spring:

  • Do some clearing of your physical space: declutter a drawer, a corner, your workspace or your closet. Refresh it with a stick of incense and divine-smelling cleaning spray (you’ll likely want to continue).
  • Go for a walk around your neighbourhood and gather some small posies of blooms and greens and place them around your home.
  • Place an egg (real or symbolic) in your sacred space and meditate on what this new life represents to you.

I myself have made a fresh batch of laundry liquid and scented it with jasmine and a little cinnamon essential oil – sweet and spicy.  And washing everyone’s sheets so they can dry outside in the sun, which is the first in 5 months!  My little one and I will go on a walk around the neighbourhood and bush and collect some spring treasures, and tonight before sleep I’ll be tucking into an Ostara meditation and journalling what I’m hoping to nurture into being for this next turn of the sun.

Happy Ostara and Mabon for my Northerners.
