The wheel of the year is turning, and we are fast approaching Spring Equinox and Ostara. Where is the year going? We say the same thing at around the same time every year, although I do feel more of a connection in 2017, on a spiritual level. Our winter has been long, dark and cold, and we are more than ready for a little spring sunshine and warmth.
Our pagan brethren will be preparing to visit Stonehenge to honour the turn of the season, but it is just slightly too far for me to visit without having to arrange a weekend trip or a few days away. I am constrained by the school timetable, and by other family responsibilities, so I have not yet found my way to Stonehenge. I will, one day, when the time is right.
I wouldn’t mind having this Stonehenge bookend on my altar shelf, however. It looks very solid, has a practical use, and can be incorporated into a Spring Equinox or Ostara ritual. All you need is a bit of imagination, and a connection with your spiritual, magical self. Add to that a little pile of chocolate Easter eggs, perhaps a statue of a rabbit or Goddess Ostara, and you have everything you need to bring forth the fertile spirit of the season.
I have a special offer for you today, if you shop on the English Heritage website. Use the code FIVE50 to receive £5 off your order total, when you spend £50 or more. The code expires on 26th March, so get those Spring Equinox gifts sorted now!
Ostara Blessings, my friends!
