Any witch who wants to celebrate Ostra should work towards spell work that encompasses growth and rebirth and to do around the first day of spring. The spring equinox is when days are longer, which is a great time to praise and worship Mother Nature in all her glory. This time of the year brings all these beautiful new seeds into growth and blooming, which channels within the mind and spirit in conjunction. Ostra is the celebration of anything that has to do with plant growth, renewal, and patience. Spring is all about rebirth, and it corresponds with the New Moon cycle in the moon phases. It represents a time to rebuild and start anew after the cold, barren winter. Spring equinox is the time of year where we connect with ancient cultures celebrating the planting time where we are all ready for the world to become a little more green and bright. Ostra is a fantastic time to celebrate the newness of the year, and setting intentions is the best method to use for this time of year.
