OSTARA: SEPTEMBER 21 - 23 SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE
At the Spring Equinox, your journey of soul steps out of the darkness and into the light.
The Spring Equinox (Ostara) brings together a powerful convergence of dark and light, death and life, and old patterns and new possibilities that are held in balance before the scales tip in favor of light and life.
Ostara is a time of beginnings, of rebirth and of opening to change. It can be a powerful time for new relationships or for change or growth in existing ones. It reminds us of the opportunity, prosperity and abundance that is flowing to us and tells us to have optimism for the road ahead.
Ostara Affirmation: "I open to the new beginnings that are flowing to me."
