Spring Equinox Celebration – Portals to Spring
Spring calls us to shake off winter’s heaviness and prepare for the fertility of this new season.
Tuesday, March 21, 2023, 7 pm to 10 pm
Celebrate this magical time of year! In Spring, the Earth is alive and ripe with possibilities – and so are we.
The Spring Equinox happens when the day and the night are at equal length – a time of perfect balance. As the Earth tips over to more light, it is a sublime reminder that light always returns to Earth. The Equinox represents new light and life, new beginnings, seeds and the power of emergence.
The celebration offers a sacred space to ponder and give thanks for the dream-time and inward journeying of winter and vision of what it is that you wish to seed for the coming season. Setting your intentions, you join the creative process and the shaping of your tomorrow.
Protection, Fertility, Wisdom, Strength, Gratitude and Joy are the essences we call upon to breath new life into what is yearning to burst forth in oneself and the Earth. The celebration is an opportunity to send energy to our Earth Community, wherever there is war and unrest, hunger, pain and injustice, to bring peace and a fertile tomorrow’ to all beings.

“Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone.
Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring.”
~ William Alexander
About the Spring Equinox
Spring Equinox, also known as Ostara (Eostre), occurs in the middle of March, approximately March 21. It marks the beginning of Spring and the time when days and nights are of equal length. In many traditions, this is the start of the new year.
Ostara (Spring Equinox) is the beginning of the fertility festivals. Buds begin to push their way through the earth to reach the strengthening sun’s light; animals breed; the energies of Nature shift subtly from the inertia of Winter to the exuberant activity of Spring. It is a time of new beginnings, of action, of saying goodbye to the old and making room for the new. The light will continue to increase until the Summer Solstice on June 21.
