Simple Ways to Celebrate the Spring Equinox

How to Celebrate the Spring Equinox, Simple Ways to Observe Ostara

The Spring Equinox is a powerful seasonal day, celebrated by ancient peoples all throughout human history. (Read more about the power of this sacred day, here.)

I really encourage you to find some time around the Equinox to pause & celebrate this meaningful seasonal shift. Here are a few simple ways you can celebrate this sacred day:

Wake up at Dawn

Spring is associated with dawn & new beginnings. After the Spring Equinox the light overtakes the dark, the sun is now more powerful than the night. Plan to wake up & watch the sunrise. Toast the growing sun on this sacred seasonal day.

Look for signs of Spring

Plan a special Spring Equinox walk to look for signs of spring.

In my family we like to do “Finds.” See who can find the most signs of spring as you walk. Or, like an egg hunt, see who can find things first.

What are your favorite trees, bushes & flowers blooming right now? Take note of all the beautiful things budding in your neighborhood. Continue walking & watching them throughout the spring, see how things morph & change.

Open a Window

I have a tradition of leaving the window open on the night of the Spring Equinox. I love hearing the birds chirping when I wake up in the morning. I love to smell the fresh, damp smells. It lets me know spring is here!

Do an Egg Hunt

Let’s be real, most of what we celebrate at Easter is really in acknowledgement of spring–the bunnies, the eggs, the pastel colors. These are all elements of Spring & the Pagan holiday Ostara. So, why not hold your egg hunt on the Spring Equinox instead of Easter? It will provide you with an awesome opportunity to talk to kids about the significance of this sacred seasonal day.

Replace the traditional Easter basket with a hidden nest filled with crystals & flowers and other earthly delights.

Plan an Ostara Meal 

Traditional Ostara meals celebrating this sacred seasonal day include (what else …) eggs! Make a quiche or some other egg-centric meal for dinner.

Take turns saying what you’d like to see blossom & grow in your life & in your family.

Make some fun plans for the upcoming months of spring & summer. Send energy into the world to help manifest your wishes.
