Deviled Eggs

1 EGGS

Saw this picture on a Google image search and thought it was a cool twist on making Deviled Eggs for Ostara

Eggs symbolize rebirth in Pagan and Christian traditions. They also pose the same question each spring to these families: “Now what do we do with all these boiled eggs?”

What you will need:

6 whole eggs [You may want to cook a couple of extra in case egg white gets ruined during peeling or when taking yolk out L.B.]

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 cup mustard or 2 teaspoons mustard powder

1/8 cup pickle juice

Paprika or chili powder

[4 black olives

1 baby carrot L.B.]

Hard boil the eggs [or use some from the ones you already have boiled and decorated L.B.]. After cooling, remove from shell, running under water to wash off any excess. Slice each egg in half lengthwise [for chicks above slice eggs about 1/3 of the way down with egg standing on flattened end L.B.] down the middle. Remove yokes from centers, being careful not to damage the egg whites. Set egg whites on a plate and put yolks in mixing bowl. In bowl add mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, pickle juice, and paprika or chili powder to taste. Mash with a fork until the mixture has a fluffy texture. With a spoon, fill each of the egg whites with the yolk mixture [You can use a pastry bag to make them look fancier L.B.]  Garnish with paprika or chili powder as desired [Cut black olives in fouths to use as eyes and baby carrot in slices then quarter the slices for the nose L.B.].

Flashback 2014 Ostara Celebration

Ostara Collage

“Ostara — Abundant Spring Critters

Ostara is the height of spring. It corresponds to dawn, the east, and abundance. Many animals bear their young or come out of their resting phase. Creatures associated with Ostara include rabbits, hares, sucks, chickens, sheep and goats. They most often appear as babies or even eggs for the birds. they are sacred to Eostre and other vernal deities.

Observe the sabbat by honoring the spring critters. Decorate your altar with images of them. [Even cut outs from magazines or printed off the inter net will work.] Spring colors such as mint green, lavender, pink, and butter yellow are also appropriate. You can borrow Easter decorations, candy, cookie cutters, etc, for Ostara because much of the symbolism overlaps.

If you keep any spring related animals as pets or livestock, do a blessing for them. Tell stories and legends about them or watch cartoons that feature them (think seasonal specials). You can discuss from a Pagan perspective.

A fun activity is divination, especially if children attend this ritual. Decorate eggs with runes, ogham, or other symbols the represent different qualities, The eggs you find will then add up to a reading (You ma also mark rubber duckies and float them in a kiddie pool for people to select.)

Flashback 2004 Ostara Celebration

images

from Google search

“Ostara marks the first day of spring and celebrates the day that the Sun finally overtake the night, proving the efficacy of magic worked at the Yule festival of lights.

Play out the egg theme; look for gadgets to blow out the egg [push a pin through both ends of an uncooked egg, rotating it in the bigger end to make hole a little larger. Than blow throw the smaller one and egg should plop out into a bowl]or do the wax pysanky eggs. You don’t need make elaborate designs: the whole idea of decorating eggs is to provide meditative intention as you work,

Bury a few eggs in seed grain or bird seed, or pack them with your garden seeds until you are ready to plant. Fill a few with giant glitter or confetti and follow the Greek tradition of cracking eggs over the head of others. Check out a music store and look for egg shaped shakers, Use them to help raise energy in a ritual.

Leave food offerings for the fairies and other nature spirits who are responsible for the fertility of the earth. Climb a nearby hill to meditate; send healing energy to local places of grave hurt to help repair the damage being done to your environment.”

Flashback 2000 Ostara Celbration

OSTARA

An example of a Ostara altar from Google search

“It is at this tine if year that the earth returns to life [in the Northern Hemisphere]. The God and Goddess are reunited, symbolized by equal hours of light and darkness. This is a time of beginnings, when the Sun first steps foot into Aries, the sign of the infant, Mars is the planetary ruler of Aries, an ancient God who gives us the energy to initiate action., to take the first step to boldly change pursuit of our desires. Mars is also known as the “red planet.” His fondness for that color is evidenced by it appearance in nature during spring,when flaming buds force themselves through the tips of tree branches toward the Sun, the giver of life. Christians celebrate Easter at this time of year, rejoicing in the resurrection of the son of God. Regardless of our path we can all creatively share in this festival of rebirth and fertility by indulging in the ancient ritual of egg-decoration, in a wonderful way to symbolically honor the new life that surrounds us.”

Flashback 2010 Ostara Celebration

zOSR+TARA

An example of an Ostara from a Google search

“Ostara is the time of hope, joy, and expectation. The seed planted at Imbolc are showing the first signs of new growth. The tender shoots still have so much potential for growth. It’s the time to look forward toward a bright future. The earth awakens from its slumber, not just on the astral, but on the physical. What was only thought at a Imbolc becomes tangible at Ostara.

It is the equinox, the time of balance between light and dark, where the cycle is about to tip into the realm of the light, more and more each day until the Summer Solstice.

THis is also a time to share good fortune. The tradition of decorating eggs can be as intricate as the Ukrainian art of pysanky, with elaborate designs filled with meaning, or as simple as eggs decorated with runes. Hard boil the eggs. Once cooled, immerse them in bowls of seasonal colors (blue, green, pink, yellow) Once color has set and dried, use paint or colored markers to adorn the eggs with runes such as Feoh (wealth, cattle), Gebo (gift), Wunjo (joy), and Sowilo (Sun). Distribute the eggs to family and friends, and eat the eggs to ingest the good wishes for the coming cycle.
