Genesis Order of  Druids Portsmouth

Around March 20th we celebrate the Spring Equinox, Ostara or Alban Eiler , As this moon takes us from March 17th this is covered here. At Ostara we celebrate the start of spring as we see  earth awakening from the cold winter, we see the first flowers and the  quickening of the earth. Eggs are a traditional symbol at this time and  are a symbol of new life.

Self-reliant and adventurous, they  love taking risks and are tenacious workers. Affectionate and charming,  they inspire great loyalty in others. Alders must learn the art of  diplomacy or they waste energy in fruitless disputes.

This is the time for making spiritual decisions, magic relating to prophecy  and divination, and getting in touch with your own intuitive processes  and abilities. You can decorate eggs for use in your Ostara rituals or  place on your altar, look around you and notice the signs of new life  that is starting to show.
