5 WAYS TO CELEBRATE OSTARA (COVID-19 APPROVED)

You can celebrate the dawning of Spring even if you’re stuck indoors, and I’m going to show you how!

Get Crafty and Dye Some Eggs

I did this with my daughter yesterday, and it was so uplifting and fun!


1. Hard boil eggs: place eggs in a pot, fill with cold water so eggs are fully submerged, place a lid on the pot and bring to a boil, remove from flame and let sit for 12 minutes.

2. Mix up some dye: Boil water. Pour 1/2 cup of boiled water in a bowl or mason jar along with a teaspoon of white vinegar and 10-20 drops of food coloring.

3. Dye the eggs: use some tongs to place eggs into jars/bowls, then remove and dry!
 

Get Dressed Up and Have a Springtime Photo Sesh

Put glitter on your face. Put color in your hair. Wear florals and pearls and rock this thing Grey Gardens-style–just ’cause you’re stuck inside doesn’t mean you can’t keep it classy af.

Get Your Garden Ready

If you’re not on total lockdown, you can pop outside and turn up your soil. Order seeds online. Get your compost delivered to your house and add it to the soil. Plant new seeds and connect with the cycle of rebirth. If you’ve never planted a garden, it’s a good time to start–those who grow fresh veggies have access to fresh veggies.

Hang Out at the Altar 

Yesterday, Esotre and I hung out on the astral. We jumped on a broom and scattered abundance all over the world. A vivid imagination is a boon in times of isolation, and the more you exercise these muscles, the easier it is to retreat into the vast, boundless landscape of the mind. As the Beatles say, “Without going out of your door, you can know all things on Earth. Without looking out of your window, you can know the ways of heaven. The farther one travels, the less one knows.”

Scrub Down Your Domicile 

Spring cleaning is a thing, and in the time of Coronavirus, it’s a potentially life-saving thing. Clean out your closets. Take stock of your resources. Up-cycle old clothes. Use everything you have–“waste not, want not.”

This is a frightening and uncertain time indeed, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find joy in the little things. Take care of yourself. Take care of each other. Connect with your magick. Have fun so you can get through the rough times. 

I believe in us, Beauty.
