Ostara 2020 Guided Meditation

I'm resurrecting this blog as the underworld goddess ascends to the middle world, and spring makes its return to the Northern hemisphere.

There's a lot that's happened in my life since I last wrote here. The TL;DR is: I'm still in the Temple of Witchcraft mystery school. I completed my second degree training last year, in which I studied the skills of the priestess, and chose to begin leading private in-person circles to turn the wheel of the year and build community locally. This began at Imbolc 2019. I have proudly turned a whole year with my little group.

Unfortunately, last week I made the decision to cancel my group's in-person gathering in the interest of everyone's health during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, I still wanted to mark the season, and offer spiritual support to others in a healthier way. So I decided to record a guided meditation.

Astrological Ostara, when the sun moves from Pisces to Aries, is exact at 11:49PM EDT tonight, but I encourage you to do this meditation whenever you have time in the coming days—the exact time is not critical. There is nothing required, however you may want to have a journal handy to write down your experience as soon as you come back. A candle and incense (especially rose, frankincense, or myrrh) can also enhance your experience.

This meditation was given to me by the goddess Eostre in journey. She has requested offerings of chocolate, if you feel so inclined.

When I announced this meditation on social media, some people asked if they could compensate me for it. I have decided to offer it for free, because I am fortunate that my job is secure and enables me to serve without compensation when I feel moved to. Please consider giving money to an unemployed service worker in your community instead. If you don't know where to give, Plaza Midwood Cares is a great fund to donate to that supports my local community.

Blessed Ostara!
