My friends will be round this evening, so we will do a small ritual and then 'socialise' for the evening! (Or at least, that is the plan anyway)

I've yet to come up with something good to do to mark the equinoxes.

There's music I like to here to celebrate the season (Copland's "Appalachian Spring", Nino Rota's score for Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet,...and maybe I'll go out and get a copy of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons")

Music is always a good way to celebrate

Happy Spring to all!

Unfortunately it's really cold here now after about a week of fabulous warm weather, so it doesn't feel very spring-like. I did a little ritual today where I lit a candle and burned some incense for the gods and the increasing sun tides.

Sadly, it is snowing where I am, today. So, it put a serious crimp in my plans. No nature walk, today.Sad I am making some quiche, though for the sabbat dinner and doing a small offering ritual later.

A ha! It was snowing where I live today too, although I had work today anyway, so I ended up celebrating yesterday!

  Yesterday, I dyed eggs with my boyfriend.  Tomorrow I'm going to light some incense and give some offerings to the nature spirits.  I'm also planning to do a small ritual.  Happy Spring Equinox/Ostara everyone!

I didn't do half of what I had planned lol.

The SO and I went out and had breakfast and spent the whole day together out in the sunshine, though. Then when it got dark, we came home and watched House.

Happy Equinox!

I celebrated yesterday with some quality time in my new garden space - planted several dozen bulbs, put in the rest of the transplanted greenery that moved with me, and cat-proofed the fence so that the felines can have some quality outside time without leashes.  That was followed up with a cookout and a very nice bottle of blackberry wine.  Tonight, I'm finishing up with some offerings and a small working.

My day ended up similarly, with my first work in the garden since last season--and gods, is there A LOT of work to be done. After listening to my spring music, I spent a gorgeous afternoon (70s here in NYC) hacking away last year's expired vegetation, so I felt very in touch with my death-aspect, clearing away the old to make way for new growth. When I finished, the garden looked destitute--and ready for the boom of life to come.

And it's coming! Despite the brutal winter here in the Northeast U.S., my butterfly bush is already leafing out, as are the wildflowers; the trees are budding (my neighbor's cherry seemed to blossom before my eyes!); and I spotted the first new sprout from one of the grasses, which says something, since they only grow in the heat.

Spring!

Hmm - if it's fairly usual in NYC for that to work out, I think you may have just come up with your "something good to do" for the vernal equinox.  That doesn't solve it for the autumnal equinox, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was some counterpart garden work that'd suit.

That's a good idea, Sunflower. I'll give it a try, but I'm not sure it will work out. (The weather in NYC  on March 21 can vary from year to year from May-like--as we got this year--to freezing snowstorm.)
