Spring Equinox ~

The spring equinox seen from the Canary Islands.
(In a long exposure from the Canary Islands, sun and stars streak the sky on last year's vernal equinox)

Happy Spring!
The equinox represents a balance between the seasons & of daylight ~
we're entering a balance of day & night!
It's the time for new beginnings, growth, birth, & celebration!

Spring is a time of great celebration in many cultures. It's the time of year when the planting begins, people begin to once more enjoy the fresh air, and we can reconnect with the earth again after the long, cold winter. A number of different gods and goddesses from different pantheons are connected with the themes of Spring and Ostara.  The pagans of Easter celebrations did just that: celebrate. They produced an atmosphere of giving and happiness, a renewal of life. A time of sex and love ~ hence the image of the "egg" symbolizing a renewed fertility in all things from seedlings bursting forth from the earth to babes to more esoteric forms of renewal within our minds!
