Happy First Day of Spring!

Today is the first day of spring, officially the spring equinox or Ostara. It’s typically celebrated either on March 20th or 21st and is the day when light and dark are equal. The Goddess is in her Maiden aspect and she and the young God are just beginning. This is the time of year when Pagans turn their attentions to outside pursuits and most begin the work of gardening in earnest. The threat of frost is less and most Pagans have already begun their seedlings for this year and started to turn-over gardens. This is a time of fertility and growth. The world is just coming alive and leaving the cold behind. Already the blooming trees in my area are a riot of color and the garden centers have put out their young plants for purchase. (It also got so hot in my apartment over the weekend when we had 80 degree weather that I had to turn on the air conditioner, much to my displeasure.)
