Happy Ostara to you all! Ostara is the spring equinox, a time to celebrate new beginnings and new life sprouting from Mother Earth. This is a time for spring cleaning and planting seeds literally and figuratively. These daffodils mean the world to me because my grandson and I planted them when he was about a year old. This year he turned 10.
We can plant our seeds of intention for the coming year of what we want our lives to be. What we can encourage to grow and blossom and what we can let go of. This is a time to reinvent who we want to be. Do we want to keep doing what we are doing? (Is it working?) or do we want to change and make a better impact on our life and those lives around us?
Now is a good time to start looking at what we can do to improve or work on ourselves not just our gardens.
I am excited to celebrate the newness of everything around me (although my favorite season is Autumn). I love the budding trees and the new flower blossoms that I see along my travels.
In celebration of Ostara, the spring equinox, I have written a poem about Gaia. I hope you enjoy it.
By Lisa Keaveney
Can you feel her beginning to blossom? How do you feel? Creative? Adventurous? Full of joy? She carries with her the circle of life, From beginning to end, Lasting 13 full moons over and over. She has the power to transmute, To transform, To ground. She is destructive and gentle. Holding love, death And rebirth. She is beautiful. Her name is Gaia. We are one, body and soul!
