March 20, 2022- 15:33 UTC Spring Solstice/Vernal Equinox (Ostara)
The Spring Equinox has arrived! Now is the time to start planting new seeds and to create something new. It is time to step into the light, as the days will start to stay brighter longer.
On the March equinox, the Sun crosses the celestial equator going south to north. It’s called the “celestial equator” because it’s an imaginary line in the sky above the earth’s equator. If you were standing at the equator, the Sun would pass directly overhead on its way north. Equinoxes are the only times a year that the Sun rises due east and sets due west for all of us on earth.
Here are some questions to help you brainstorm and get you working with the Spring Equinox energies:
- What do I feel inspired to create?
- What clutter should I get rid of so that I can clear and recharge my space?
- What baking or cooking would I like to do for this occasion?
- How can I get in touch with nature and start spending some more time outdoors?
I would like to set the following intentions and/or goals for this Spring Solstice (Ostara):
