Vernal Equinox (cont)
interesting to note that these four “major” festivals tend to resonate
for a full 24 hours before we actually get to celebrating
them. And we all enter into that energy – most particularly
because we know very well that the Celebration of Love’s culmination is
on the horizon – much more about this very soon.
Graham has done
a fantastic job of covering the links between Easter and Ostara, so
I’ll not go there, except to point out that most pagans see the Vernal
Equinox as the rebirth of Nature….I suppose that is quite similar in
some ways to the concepts behind the Resurrection.
the Vernal is a day of balance – day and night are in perfect
equilibrium. That aids us in creating balance within. Take
some time out on this day to consider those things which have
destabilised you in the last year. Try not to attribute
emotions to them – rather stand back, and simply let your thoughts and
feelings flow. When you feel you have considered thoroughly
anything you have disquiet about, make for it a mental image which
encapsulates it in your mind. It really does not matter what this
is. It just needs to sum up the totality of the
I find eggs very handy for this – you need
an egg and a bowl, plus a lot of kitchen towel. But you could do
anything else so long as you are able, in one way or another, to
“break” the image. I do this by sitting quietly, egg in
hand, contemplating my “issue”. And when I have finished, I crush
that egg (best done over the bowl ;-)). I take great
delight in squadging everything up thoroughly, and knowing I am
squadging that issue right out of my life, leaving myself fallow and
open for new planting. You could sketch the image and then
joyously rip it into shreds. You could write bits of how
you feel and set fire to it (fireproof bowl with water required
here). You’d be surprised how efficiently you get rid of
troubling issues in this fashion.
The Vernal Equinox is all about explosive and positive growth. So…grow!
