Our coven celebrated the coming of Spring over the course of a few days amidst the chill of a still young season and the rain of California storms. On Sunday, March 18th, we gathered at dawn at the Covenstead, cast a sacred circle, and expressed our hopes for the dawning of the growing season. For some of us there were new projects, for others future travel adventures and we asked the Lord and Lady for their blessings for what lay ahead.

A lovely willow egg-shaped portal had been constructed, and we decorated it with flowers from the garden.

The entrance to the egg-shaped portal faced towards the east, and beyond the portal lay a basket of plastic eggs. Each egg contained a word to focus on for the year ahead, and a seed. Each of us chose one egg at random after stepping through the portal of rebirth and meditated for a moment on the message inside our special egg. The message later would be planted along with the seed to represent the spiritual growth of our new growing season. My message was “wondrousness”- so inspiring to get me to slow down and see the wonder in each day!

We sent requests for healing and success to the divine, and as we raised the energy to be released, the sun peeked over the horizon- truly wondrous, indeed in its timing!

The next day we set off to go camping at Sycamore Canyon, close to the ocean.

The ocean is always so inspiring to me in the many ways it shows its face to us! Sometimes its pearly sheen glows in the light, and the different shades of blue and green it takes on are astounding in their variety.

On the actual morning of the equinox we gathered on the beach with bundles of blooms.

We addressed the quarters and spoke some words to the morning sky, and then offered the flowers to Mother Ocean, asking divine blessings of protection and healing for the planet.

We enjoyed the day in the canyon and were glad we had some clear weather before the approaching storms forced us to leave.

We left knowing that the much needed rain was coming to quench the parched earth, and we felt truly blessed by our time spent in nature’s realm.

May the moist and verdant blessings of Ostara rain on your lives, as this new season of growth begins! How have you been celebrating the equinox? I’d love to hear!

Brightest Blessings,

Lady Sarina 🧚‍♀️
