Liturgy of the Lady to Ostara

Liturgy of the Lady in honor of Ostara

5:00 PM, Sunday, March 31, 2013

BFUU Main Hall, Cedar at Bonita, Berkeley, CA (one block east of M.L.King Jr. Way)

Priestess: Diana Paxson

Donations gratefully accepted

 

The Liturgy of the Lady is an open celebration of the Goddess in Her many forms. She is the Maiden of youth, the Mother of culture, the Crone of wisdom, and She is mirrored in all life, death and rebirth. We honor Her with reverent and joyful singing, ritual activities, and opportunities to learn. Now in our fourth decade of offering this sacred service, we invite you to join us.

 

The Goddess Ostara, or Eostre, is the Anglo-Saxon Goddess of Spring, the East, Resurrection, and Rebirth, is also the Maiden aspect of the Three-fold Goddess.  She gave Her name to the Christian festival of Easter (which is an older Pagan festival appropriated by the Church), whose timing is still dictated by the Moon. Modern Pagans celebrate Her festival on the Vernal Equinox, usually around March 21, the first day of Spring.

 

Objects may be charged on the altar during the rite. Wheel-chair accessible (let us know if you need someone to hold the door for you.) Family and child-friendly. Incense will be used in this ritual, unless requested in advance. Please share this invitation with your friends.

    There were some good songs and new poems added to the traditional ritual script. "Hymn to the Goddess" (aka Womb of Darkness) had a harp accompaniment.
