Spring Equinox – Renewal

SPRING EQUINOX

The spring equinox, also called the vernal equinox, occurs on March 20 or 21 in the Northern Hemisphere and September 20 or 21 in the Southern Hemisphere.
This is the point when the sun crosses the plane of the equator, and day and night are the same length across the planet.
Earth Mother is pregnant and is birthing once again.
Crops can once again be planted.

This card features a rendition of Ostara, sometimes spelled Oestre or Eastre, a Germanic goddess of spring.
Ostara is also a northern European name for Astarte, which means “womb”; and is another name for Venus, the goddess of love, passion, and creativity.
The Christian holiday of Easter stems from this goddess, and in this card we see some archetypal symbols of the spring equinox that represent the rebirth of the world, such as rabbits, eggs, and flowers.

It is indeed a time for renewal.
