Celebrating a Solitary Ostara

The Spring Equinox is here, and for those that are used to celebrating with friends this year it feels strange to be isolated. We were actually originally planning some activities for the store to try and bring the community together. Clearly, we are no longer planning that this year. But whether you are forced to celebrate alone this year, or you’re a solitary witch who usually celebrates the wheel of the year alone, here are some simple things you can still do to celebrate the change of season.

Go Out Into Nature

Enjoy this day where day and night are of equal length. If you can, get outside, away from people to experience the day. Especially if you can experience that transition, the sunrise, and think about the days growing longer as you greet the morning.

Garden

Even if it’s a container garden, the first day of Spring is a great time to plant something! I have my new herb garden started, so I’ll be taking some time to tend to it. Don’t have the space to garden? People may be hording toilet paper, but there are still flowers and plants at many grocery stores! Bring a little seasonal beauty home with you.

Eggs!

A symbol of the season, and delicious too! Whether it is eggs for breakfast or coloring hard boiled eggs, chances are you already have everything you need at home.

Wear Green

I know we’re only a couple of days from St. Patrick’s Day, but green is also a color of growth. Embrace spring with the color of new leaves!

For all of you stuck at home, looking to do something with your kids, or who just like to color, I’ve made you a little something to help celebrate the season. Click below to download our free coloring page, and enjoy a Happy Equinox and Ostara, however you choose to celebrate!
