Ostara Ceremony

Come and celebrate with us. All are welcome to this open teaching circle.

OSTARA is our next ceremony to be celebrated. Also known as the Spring Equinox, March 20-23 dependent on actual astronomical event) The Goddess blankets the Earth with fertility as the God stretches and grows to maturity. The hours of day and night are equal and light is overtaking darkness. This is a time of beginnings, action, planting spells, and of tending the gardens. This is the start in the pagan year of spring, at least among Wiccans and Celtics. The first flowers are praised and the God and Goddess thanked for the true return to happier times for all. Ostara is one of the more colorful holidays, not one of the somber colors found in Yule and Candlemas. Feasting and socializing are the important factors in this holiday as well as the celebration of the return of color to the natural world. In the Christian calendar, again to draw early worshipers, they marked this as the final days and rebirth of Jesus (when according to history he died in June!).
We'll be at Brighton Town Park, celebration to start at 7pm. Donations accepted to offset costs of cabin and travel for John and Gail.
Everyone is welcome to participate in this circle.

    Ceremony starts promptly at 7 and completes around 8:30. Part of the circle conduct if you need to leave the circle you would have to let John or Gail know so they can open and close it because it's ceremonial space.

      John and Gail are pagans who lead the circle. They live is Oswego but have many friends here in Rochester. They used to do their ceremonies at Angel Heart Church in Newark. They're main focus is Celtic paganism.
