🌸✨Celebrating Spring Equinox✨🌸
This is a very special time of year celebrated at the start of Aries season . On this day also known as Ostara, the earth and the sun are positioned so that both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres have equal sunlight, this is symbolic of balance. This is also a time of new beginnings as the flowers bloom and new life emerges.
Many pagan religions celebrate Ostara as the time when the Earth (the Goddess) and the Sun (the God) reunite in perfect harmony. A lot of the spring equinox symbols/correspondences I’m going to share are also popular for the Christian holiday Easter, so it’s interesting to see different holidays and their origin from earlier religions and ancient rituals.

✨Pastel candles (fire element)
