This is my sister blog. Suited for all the nifty pagan oriented things I find.
I'm a practicing eclectic pagan with very strong Nordic principles.
Feel free to message me about anything. I'll do my best if anyone has questions relating to paganism.
Óstara blót: March 20
Originally an Anglo-Saxon holiday, it was quickly adopted by the Ásatrú folk along with its patroness, Óstara. This hátíð is documented in the Anglo-Saxon heathen calendar published by The Venerable Bede in his 8th century, De Temporum Ratione (“Of Times and Seasons”).
This holiday occurs on the Vernal Equinox, in March, and is a celebration of the coming of spring and growth. Customs include egg painting and egg hunts, leaving eggs hanging on outside trees or buried in the ground depending on your particular heritage.
My blood is sea water and starlight. My breath, a hurricane. My song, a thunderstorm. My soul blooms roses in the sunlight, my teeth are biting thorns.
I am a force of nature.
The roots of all living things are tied together. Deep in the ground of being, they tangle and embrace. If we look deeply, we find that we do not have a separate self-identity, a self that does not include sun and wind, earth and water, creatures and plants, and one another.
