Your prompt this week is:
Oestara is the Wiccan name for the vernal equinox. The Vernal Equinox is celebrated around the end of the third week of March, somewhere between the 19th and 25th usually. The word “equinox” means “equal night,” which signifies that night and day are equal at this time, with the light of the Sun growing in power toward midsummer. It’s the turning point from winter to spring. It is a beginning of the agricultural year, and its rites ensure fertility of crops and flocks; it is a time of planting, nurturing and growth.
This minor Wiccan Sabbat (there are 4 minor and 4 major sabbats in the wiccan wheel of the year) is named for the Saxon Goddess of Spring, Oestre. There are several different translations of the meaning of her name; East, dawn and morning light indicating the returning warmth of the sun’s rays and the lengthening days. In Germany her warm nature is still marked by bonfires lit at dawn on the Spring Equinox. She is the Maiden Goddess; full of potential, representing the opportunity of growth and rebirth after the stagnation of winter. The Maiden Archetype represents purity and the innocence of childhood, where the soul’s dreams, magic and make believe still prevail. The rabbit was Oestre’s sacred animal, which is where we get the Easter Bunny.
Oestara is a day of celebration because it marks the planting time, when the land is finally ready to be tilled and made fertile with seed for food and cloth. Because eggs are a universal symbol of fertility, it is customary to decorate eggs with spring colours and throw them into running water or bury them in the ground to promote the growth of the crops.
