The first day of spring is very important for many reasons. Spring is the season of new beginnings. Fresh buds bloom, animals awaken, and the earth seems to come to life again. Farmers and gardenersÂ plant their seeds and temperatures slowly rise.
It’s the first day of the new astrological year. We start in the first house Aries. This is a time to be bold confident leader who builds community.
Next, it is Ostara. This is the Celtic tradition to celebrate the Spring Equinox. They celebrate the transition to days being longer than the night.
Also, it is Eleusinia. This is the Greek celebration of spring. This is the day Persephone leaves Hades to spend 6 months on earth. Her mother Demeter (also mother earth) is so excited she lets life begin again.
Lastly, a cool event happens on this equinox at the Mayan runes of Chichen Itza. The afternoon sun creates a shadow that looks like a snake.
