Last Wednesday March 20th we celebrated the Spring Equinox coupled with quite an awesome alignment: a supermoon in Libra during Mercury retrograde… woop!!!
The Spring Equinox starts the new astrological year. We finish all of our inward work: we planted our seeds during Imbolc and made sure our roots grew nice and strong. This is our last chance to check in with all honesty and see if there are any obstacles which may still be hindering our intentions. When Ostara comes we break through to the outside world and our first little shoots start to show. Day and night are equal length and from now onwards light prevails.
The energy of this time of year can be quite conflicting as we are drawn to jump into the new, with the sun shining a little more, while our bodies and minds go on a detox party – this is why illness is quite common at this time. Our bodies need rest while they detox as they’re pumping toxins out. The important task to be in our bodies and listen to them comes to play here and this is why we bring our Yoga and Sound Baths to the community!
The room was filled with creative energy last Wednesday – including an unintended all female group – lots of creative Ostara enegy! Bathed by the supermoon we all joined into powerful ritual after our practice, you could almost see the sparks of energy flying up to the moonlit sky through the sunroof!
Our ceremony was closed in a sharing circle with yummy grounding Ostara treats and cleansing nettle tea. Our intentions were set and sent through. Our bodies were cleansed and reset. We felt calm and energised. And we shared and laughed with friends – the most important healing of all!
Happy Ostara to you all and see you on May 1st when we celebrate beautiful Beltane.
