    Ostara Plans

    I realize I've still got a while, but I wanna know how y'all celebrate Ostara! I don't really do much, but I wanna try something out since it's pretty rare that I actually have the time or motivation to celebrate smaller holidays.

    What do y'all do?

    I don't even know what I'm going to eat tomorrow XD

    I really like Ostara though. I always do at least something small for each sabbath. It usually involves tasty foods and drinks. I don't remember what I did last year. I'm getting my garden ready for spring, so I might mix sowing the new seeds with a ritual of some sort.
    Wherever you are in life is exactly where you need to be right now.

    Ah, that's probably a good idea. I keep a lot of potted plants in the house anyways, and I'm always planting something new!

    I set up an altar at sundown for Mani and switch it out at dawn for Sunna. I usually make sun tea and moon water.

    After I make it I try to use it right away and if I don't only refrigerate it for a few days. Usually in a tea or even coffee, unless I am making incense.

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    This is coming up, but I'm away at work right now, so truthfully I'll probably do nothing.

    Mar 21 doesn't really fit into my WotY where I live, as it doesn't mark any significant change in the seasons. It's not Spring for me.

    The next celebration I'll have is the community bonfire at the very end of March, which is sort of a "we made it through the winter" hurrah out on the ice before it starts to melt.
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    Questions of science, science and progress, do not speak as loud as my heart.

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    I will probably do something small at home. The next two weeks are suppose to be in the 50's and 60's so maybe I'll go swim in the backyard with all the melted snow but for the boy I am unsure.
