Definitely on Reality overload.
In the words of Anna Quindlen. ๐Ÿ“– "Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.โ€ ๐Ÿค” Hmmmm.
Now where shall I go tonight?

It is critically important we self isolate and practice social distancing right now. We closed the store in an effort to do our part to help flatten the curve. Hopefully we can re-open in early April. In the meaรฑtime we are working diligently from home to get our Shopify store ready to launch. ๐ŸŒฑ Taking a tea break right now and thinking of you all. Hope you are all well and safe. Take good care. See you soon. Miss you. ๐Ÿ’š .

Ostara: Lore, History, Traditions

Ostara is the celebration of the Spring Equinox. Traditionally March 20-23 (Northern hemisphere), or September 20-23 (Southern hemisphere). The name Ostara is said to have come from Eostre, the Germanic Goddess of Spring. Eostre is a goddess associated with flowers and springtime.

Spring equinox is a time for fertility and sowing seeds. In medieval European societies the March hare was viewed as a fertility symbol. This particular species of rabbit is nocturnal most of the year, but in March when mating season begins, they were / are bunnies abundant.

Lore:

Resurrection / Renewal - We celebrate the renewal of life as seen by the newly emerging life in many forms all around us. A resurrection from all that looks dead is seen as the Earth regenerates and renews herself. This is symbolized in resurrection myths in many cultures and traditions, such as the resurrection of Christ on Easter, or many other Gods (ex. Attis, Adonis, Osiris) who, like Jesus, die and are born again each year.

Eggs - Many of the myths hold the egg as sacred to life on earth. It represents life as a circle represents eternal life. The golden orb of its yolk represents the Sun God, its white shell is seen as the White Goddess, and the whole is a symbol of rebirth.

Gardening - The Spring Equinox is a time of new beginnings, of action, of tending gardens. It is a time of the Earthโ€™s renewal, a rousing of nature after the cold sleep of winter. It is the time to plant & germinate seeds.

In ancient Italy in the spring, women planted gardens of Adonis. They filled urns with grain seeds, kept the in the dark and watered them every two days. This custom persists in Sicily. Women plant seeds of grainsโ€“lentils, fennel, lettuce or flowersโ€“in baskets and pots. When they sprout, the stalks are tied with red ribbons and the gardens are placed along roads on Good Friday. They symbolize the triumph of life over death.
