Spring is all about new life! New endeavors and manifesting! Here’s a fun and easy ritual you can do for Ostara and the first day of spring! Even your kids can take part!
🌸 Take an egg (a symbol of fertility..seed..manifesting) and write on it what you are going to be manifesting in the coming months. Write it in the positive, like it’s already happening. For example, I am successful…not, I will be successful. Claim that dream!
🌸 Next, bury your egg outside (or in a pot) with seedlings or a new plant on top. And voila! Literally planting your fertility seed of manifestation!!
🌸I personally like to up the ante with essential oils. I breathe in the aroma while I hold the egg and visualize all my goals coming into fruition. Elevation to keep those vibes HIGH, Orange for success and confidence and creativity and patchouli for prosperity and a little grounding.
Blessed Ostara to you! Ostara is celebrated on the spring equinox. It’s a time to honor Mother Earth as she gives birth to new life. This is a wonderful time to give birth in your own life, in the form of setting goals and intentions. You can even include your children in this. A fun ritual you can start on this holiday is “planting an egg”.
Eggs are a major symbol within Ostara as they symbolize fertility and birth. Planting seeds and plants is also common around this time. Take an egg and on it you will write your goals, wishes or intentions for the coming months. Then take the egg outside, dig a hole and bury the egg. You can then plant seeds on top of the egg.
The egg wil help fertilize the soil and the plant. As the plant grows and blooms, so will your goals and intentions. You’re also getting the added benefit of giving back to the earth and leaving a bit of an offering to Gaia.
