A Blessing for Your Home
The vernal equinox is the launch of the spring season. This festival’s familiar symbols of rabbits, pastel-colored eggs, and bright spring flowers are sweet and romantic ones. Look around you: everywhere in nature there are signs of life returning to the land. To bring a bit of this natural magick indoors, pick up a pretty pot of blooming bulbs—try tulips for love or daffodils for chivalry and honor—and take them home to brighten things up.
Perhaps you can jazz them up a little by tucking some moss over the soil or adding a festive bow or tiny colored eggs to the container. Enchant these spring flowers for fresh starts and good luck. Light a soft green votive candle and call on the goddess of spring, Eostre, to work this sabbat spell for new beginnings and to increase the positive things in your life.
Ostara begins our season of spring
Good luck, joy, and cheer these flowers do bring.
Eostre, bless my home, family, and friends
May your love and blessings never end.
For the good of all, with harm to no one
By the goddess of spring, this charm is done!
Allow the green candle to burn until it goes out on its own. Happy spring!
If you care to modify this spell a bit, here are some correspondences for the goddess Eostre/Ostara. Colors employed are all pastel shades and, of course, spring green. Symbols for the goddess include the white hare and colored eggs, birds, feathers, nests, and baskets of spring flowers. The goddess Eostre can be called on in magick for balance, illumination, renewal, new beginnings, fertility, and rebirth.
