Details

• What we'll do
Spring equinox is a time of new beginning and initiating enterprises. A time of reaching balance between Dark & Light.. day & night. It is a time of noticeable lengthening of daylight hours and quickening. Flowers blooming, trees sprouting buds and leaves. Astrologically, the Sun enters the firey sign of Aries. We work actively to balance the opposing forces in our lives, and a bit of personal `spring-cleaning’ internally, then explore the mystery of Spring, through the God-Goddess cycle. Mating and fertility rites are obviously being played out by all wildlife in nature at this moment.

RITUAL

-Creating sacred space with Consecrations, Circle casting & calling quarters.
-Energy raising - with chants & spiral dance.
-Invocations of Spring God & Spring Goddess.
-Seasonal magic & Blessing of Cakes & Wine.
-Close circle, Feasting & Socials.
