Spring FlowersThe Vernal Equinox

Also known as Ostara, Easter, and St. Patrick's Day, occurs in the middle of March. It marks the beginning of Spring and the time when days and nights are of equal length. The Goddess manifests as Ostara or Eostre with her basket of eggs. She is accompanied by the Hare or Rabbit, a manifestation of the God. Green has been sacred to this Shabbat since ancient times, because it represents the greening of the land with vegetation. This is a festival of new growth. On the first of May is May Day, sometimes called Beltane.

The Vernal Equinox for 2006 will occur at 1:19 AM EST on  March 20th.
