Happy Spring Equinox!

Happy Spring Equinox, or Ostara! It’s a great day to try something new!  I just found out about “TIE” dying eggs!  That’s the use of old silk ties to dye eggs, with no need for any additional dye (see link below).  We’ll see if it works…..


Our spirituality brings us Ostara today – a great reminder that life returns after challenges, as well as a reminder of that every cool thing has to start, and it’s a great time to start new things.  Of course, our spherical planet also gives us the beautiful symmetry of the  Fall Equinox (& Mabon) being celebrated now by our Southern Hemisphere friends.  The moment of the Equinox is at 9:22 PM (UT), Saturday, March 20th.  Life will return!

Silk-Dyed Eggs {aka TIE-Dyed!}

Many of the online celebrations haven’t happened yet.  Check out the links here to join any of them.


Some of the ways many of us are celebrating were published a few weeks ago. My family will celebrate the Equinox Sunday, with the egg coloring and other traditions mentioned in the post just linked to.  We have found that leaving them in the dye in the cold garage over night deepens their color.  In whatever way you are celebrating, Happy Equinox!

This is an  updated version of the yearly Spring Equinox announcement.   An overview of the eight holidays of the Wheel of the Year, from a naturalistic perspective, is here.
