In my tradition it is a time when we honour the element of fire. We honour Artha, the great She-Bear in the sky. We honour Grainne, the Sun Goddess rising in the east. In the morning, if you are out early, turn towards Her and just breathe Her in. Breathe in the light, breathe in the rays of light and the energy She brings. I love doing this early in the morning, but any time of day is just as good!
It is a time to honour the different types of fire. The warmth of the sun, which brings life to this planet, the fire in our bellies that brings us passion and inspiration, the fire of our emotions which can sometimes blind us and bring us both joy and other times take us to the depth of despair. Sit with your emotions today. Light a candle and breathe. Perhaps take out a journal and write about how you are feeling. Bring out all your emotions and see if you can get more clarity on what is happening right now.
We also honour Ostara, or Eostre the Fire Mother. She is the one who gives the spark to the seeds in the earth helping everything to burst forth!
Call on Her to help awaken the seeds within yourself. Allow yourself to receive Her renewing energy and try not to hold back. Let what needs to come come!
If you want to, re-decorate your altar with the colours of spring and items that represents rebirth to you.
I wish you a magical time!
With love, Elin xx
