Ostara Spell The Spring Equinox, called Ostara by many, is a day of perfect balance between night and day, darkness and light, slumber and awakening.

Many craft traditions, covens, and solitaries have devised their own rituals for awakening Mother Earth at this time.

Many of these can be traced back to England.
One common practice is to walk through a natural area, tap the earth three times with a staff or wand, and make a joyful noise to welcome the Goddess's return.

This ritual is performed three times in keeping with the sacred number of many of the Pagan sects from western European countries.

Now is not only a good time to awaken Mother Earth, but also to awaken ourselves.

We should ask: Are we only going through the motions now ?
Or are we reawakening our spiritual selves, and seeing anew all the magical possibilities of spring ?
To awaken your own body, mind, and soul to spring's rebirth, give back to Mother Earth some of the things we've taken from her.

Plant a tree, herb garden, or flowers.

Feed her animals and birds.
