What is happening in April



Around March 20th we celebrate the Spring Equinox, Ostara or Alban Eiler , As this moon takes us from March 17th this is covered here. At Ostara we celebrate the start of spring as we see earth awakening from the cold winter, we see the first flowers and the quickening of the earth. Eggs are a traditional symbol at this time and are a symbol of new life.

This is the time for making spiritual decisions, magic relating to prophecy and divination, and getting in touch with your own intuitive processes and abilities. You can decorate eggs for use in your Ostara rituals or place on your altar, look around you and notice the signs of new life that is starting to show.
