Ostara Ritual

Join Reclaiming LA to celebrate the Spring Equinox. Also known as Ostara, this ritual celebrates the halfway mark between winter and summer when day and night are equal length. The Spring Equinox marks one of four special points on the Earth’s rotation around the Sun when light and dark hang in perfect balance.

In ritual space we’ll come together to celebrate springtime and growth – the renewal of life that appears on the earth after winter. This is a time to break free from that which has been holding us back. It’s a time to shed the baggage and make a fresh start – to move on, to look forward rather than behind.
