Spring Equinox / Ostara
The vernal equinox, sometimes called Ostara or Eostre, celebrates the returning warmth and burgeoning life force of the Land. Eostre is the forerunner of the major Christian holiday of Easter, a festival of resurrection/rebirth, and shares its root word with estrus, the sexual "heat" cycle of female animals. It is a time of balance in the midst of growth, the still center point between Winter's cold and Summer's heat.
At this circle, we will be creating a Spring-related craft project. (All craft supplies will be provided.) In our ritual and magickal working we will be raising energy to grow our intentions for this year, or to achieve balance in some area of our life - so be thinking about your intention for this ritual!
Please dress comfortably, and feel free to bring drums, rattles or other instruments, along with a journal for recording any insights received on your journey.
Doors open at 7:00 pm and close at 7:30 pm, and ends at 11:00 pm (ritual circles run a little longer than usual). Please RSVP to ensure your space. Suggested donation of $10.00 per person to cover the space rental. Come join us for this powerful exploration!
We will be meeting in the Serena Room at Casa de Luz. Some backjacks, folding chairs, pillows and yoga blankets will be available. If possible, you might want to bring your own pillow or blanket to help make sure that you're comfy during the circle, especially if you plan to journey lying down on the floor. You might also want to bring a light wrap or sweater in case the AC is acting up! :) Several of us will be having dinner at 6 PM in Casa's restaurant, so feel free to join us for dinner before the circle! [Note: Just a reminder that it is OK to park in the City of Austin lot across the street, even though "No Parking" signs are posted. The City & Casa have an agreement for now, so you won't get towed.]
