Spring is here , The Earth renews itself, what was Dead is Now Alive!!
Beloved Goddess, Freya, Ostara and Brigid let our prayers come onto you.
The Mountains sleep, the rivers were frozen and the Trees Dream.
Yet now The White Raven flies once again.
Mighty Odin All Father Spring is here, The Earth Renews itself what was Dead is now Alive!! It is reborn!!
Its time to fill our cups, and horns, to the brim with mead, pick up the Tagelharpa, Shruti Box, drum and flute, Play Music, tell stories and feast.. Raising a horn for all those we hold dear, to the ancestors, to land and its people, and to the new stories that are just about to be birthed and born…
The Earth renews itself what was Dead is now Alive! And for that Our Beloved Goddess we give a Thousand Thanks!!! Words Shane Christian Gadd
A twig Tree Dedicated to Ostara, Freya and Brigid and to the mighty All Father Odin.. A tradition and threads flow back 1000’s of years. Birch, Blackthorn, and Hawthorn twigs were gathered around dusk and brought into the house and the dwelling, for these trees are the first to bud and blossom the home is humbly decorated, honouring the return of Spring.
There is very little information on the Goddess Ostara a lot of her traditions live on in the modern day Easter. As a holiday, Easter's roots actually predate Christianity, it was originally the name for the Spring Equinox. One of Ostara’s name variations, Esotara, slowly evolved into the modern name for this holiday, Easter. The name "Eostre" (Old Germanic "Ostara"), is related to that of Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn, her name can then be translated as East, Dawn or Morning Light. How beautiful is that?
