Upcoming Ritual: “Ostara” Friday, March 20, 2020 – 7:00 p.m. ​UUFP Sanctuary/Fellowship Building   The annual Spring Equinox, called “Ostara” by modern Pagans, is celebrated with eager anticipation in many lands and religions, and is the next holiday on the Pagan calendar.  This is time to emerge from the darkness and close quarters of Winter, assess the world around us, and begin to search for signs of life and growth in our surroundings.  In the plant kingdom, seeds and shoots are beginning to sprout as Spring approaches.  In the animal kingdom, creatures have begun to look for new sources of food, for opportunities to renew old acquaintances, and perhaps to start a family.  This is a time of positivity, excitement and possibility. Another aspect of Ostara is the balance of dark and light, as the time of daylight has become equal with nighttime.   Some years, our Ritual focuses on this balance of light and dark, as it applies to our lives, spiritual practices, and/or future.  Other times, we aim the ritual more towards honoring the Germanic goddess, Ostara, in her many aspects as a deity of fertility, growth, awakenings and beginnings. Planning for this Ritual will be on Friday, March 6, at 7:00 p.m., in the Sanctuary building. This is an open planning session to all of good will.  We often state that the “Real Magic” takes place at our Planning sessions, as insights and ideas spark, kindle, and grow into inspiration and creation. The Ostara Ritual, will be celebrated on Friday, March 20, also at 7:00 p.m., in the Sanctuary building. A pot luck feast and social time will follow the Ritual.  EarthRising strives to be inclusive, fun and safe for all ages and abilities, respectful of the Earth and all her creations, and to provide meaningful opportunities to experience the mysteries of the Universe.  Blessed be!

Ostara Ritual

The annual Spring Equinox, called “Ostara” by modern Pagans, is celebrated with eager anticipation in many lands and religions, and is the next holiday on the Pagan calendar.  This is time to emerge from the darkness and close quarters of Winter, assess the world around us, and begin to search for signs of life and growth in our surroundings.  In the plant kingdom, seeds and shoots are beginning to sprout as Spring approaches.  In the animal kingdom, creatures have begun to look for new sources of food, for opportunities to renew old acquaintances, and perhaps to start a family.  This is a time of positivity, excitement and possibility. Another aspect of Ostara is the balance of dark and light, as the time of daylight has become equal with nighttime.

 

Some years, our Ritual focuses on this balance of light and dark, as it applies to our lives, spiritual practices, and/or future.  Other times, we aim the ritual more towards honoring the Germanic goddess, Ostara, in her many aspects as a deity of fertility, growth, awakenings and beginnings.
