Ostara Enchantment: Welcoming the Spring Goddess



As the chill of winter retreats and the earth begins to thaw, we prepare to welcome the Spring Goddess, Ostara. Known by many names – Eostre, Eastre, and the Goddess of Dawn, she is the harbinger of rebirth, renewal, and rejuvenation. With her arrival, the world awakens from its winter slumber, and we witness the rebirth of flora and fauna, the return of the sun's warmth, and the renewal of our spirits.

The celebration of Ostara is a time of balance, when day and night stand in perfect equilibrium. As lightworkers, witches, and spiritual seekers, we honor Ostara for her promise of new beginnings and the hope that springs eternal. Let us now delve into the enchantment of Ostara and discover how we can welcome her into our lives, hearts, and sacred spaces.


The Essence of Ostara


Understanding Ostara

Ostara is a goddess of the Spring Equinox and embodies the spirit of the season. She is associated with fertility, growth, and renewal, symbolized by the egg and the hare. The hare represents fertility and abundance, while the egg signifies renewal and the promise of new life.

The celebration of Ostara is steeped in ancient traditions, which have been passed down through generations. The festival is a time to honor the balance between light and dark, and to embrace the increasing light as we journey towards the summer season. As we align with Ostara, we are invited to awaken our own potential for growth and renewal. This is a perfect time to set intentions, start new projects, or make significant changes in our lives.


Welcoming Ostara

Welcoming Ostara into our lives is a joyous celebration, filled with light, color, and the magic of spring. Start by setting up an Ostara altar to honor the goddess and the season. Use fresh flowers, crystals, candles, and symbols of fertility such as eggs and hares to decorate your sacred space. Light a green candle to symbolize growth and renewal, and consider incorporating a bowl of water to represent the thawing earth.


As you prepare your altar, focus on your intentions and desires for the coming season. Invite Ostara to guide you on your journey of growth and renewal. You may want to write your intentions on a piece of paper and place it under a crystal or candle on your altar. Engage in rituals and practices that resonate with you. This could include a sunrise meditation, a nature walk, planting seeds, or crafting an Ostara wreath. Remember, the essence of this celebration is to honor the return of light and life, and to attune ourselves to the energy of renewal.


Living Ostara

The celebration of Ostara is not just a one-day event, but a season of growth and renewal. Keep the energy of Ostara alive by incorporating her essence into your daily life. Continue to nurture your intentions, and take actions that align with your desired growth. Engage with nature and observe the changes of the season. Notice the budding trees, the blooming flowers, and the return of birds and wildlife. These are all signs of Ostara's influence and reminders of the constant cycle of renewal.

Finally, remember to be gentle with yourself during this time of change. Just like the earth, we too are awakening from our winter rest and preparing for a season of growth. Be patient, and allow the energy of Ostara to guide you on your journey.



As we welcome the Spring Goddess, Ostara, we open our hearts to the promise of new beginnings, the joy of growth, and the magic of renewal. We honor the balance of light and dark, and embrace the increasing light as we journey towards the summer season. We create sacred spaces to honor Ostara, and engage in rituals and practices that align us with her energy.


Through welcoming Ostara, we awaken our own spirit of renewal and set intentions for growth and transformation. Let us celebrate Ostara with joy and gratitude, and allow her magic to infuse our lives with the enchantment of spring. May your Ostara be filled with light, growth, and the promise of new beginnings.


Blessed be,
