Blessed Ostara!  Happy Spring!

“The festival of the spring equinox speaks of freshness and youth, of excitement and endless possibilities. Nature begins to quicken and early flowers open to the warmth of the strengthening sun, bringing the colours of lemon and yellow into our lives on the wings of a March wind.”  - Carole Carlton   A beautiful and blessed Ostara/Spring Equinox to you all!  At this special time, we welcome the return of the green, growing things of the Mother Earth and a strengthening of the light of the Sun.  At the midpoint between the cold of winter and the warmth and fullness...
