On March 20th it was the Spring Equinox.
Quite simply put, it’s a time where the hours of daylight and night are almost equal. It’s a sign that
the nights are getting lighter, earlier and of course that means we are heading into the heady days
of more sunshine…hopefully!
Aside from the lighter nights and mornings, we can now see real signs of Spring, as the flowers
begin to poke their heads above their wintery soil. This is such a wonderful sight of course, but
for me, it also serves as a great reminder of the cycles of mother nature. It is a time to reflect on
life and death, and on the concept of spiritual rebirth. The season of spring brings with it the hope
of new and exciting times to come.
A walk in the woods near my home was a delight, as everywhere there are the very elements
of such on display. Death is replaced with Life. Winter has gone and the earth slowly awakens.
Primula and wild garlic were abundant and there are so many things to see in nature at this time.
But the spring equinox is also a deeply spiritual time and is when we celebrate Ostara, named
after the Germanic Maiden Goddess Eostre, now known to us all as Easter.
Rabbits, hares and painted eggs are both potent symbols of fertility, and are mostly associated
with this spring Goddess. It is also, however, a great time for tarot readings too. As we emerge
from the darkness of winter and approach the lightness of spring, we have a sense of newness
and of fresh starts. If there are things troubling you now, it is a good time to shake off the doom
and gloom of winter and launch yourself anew into the springtime of the year. It is a time to be
filled with hope and wonder and to look forwards, not back.
I still have an offer on the site for a free reading (3 Card Tarot reading).
If you purchase a 7 Card Reading – you will receive this Three Card Reading free of charge.
This offer expires at the end of March.
In the meantime, I wish you all a very Happy Ostara and look forward to the spring with light
and love and laughter.
