Nuriawen’s Ostara Ritual
1 gold candle (to represent the god.)
1 green candle (to represent the goddess.)
Anointing oil (rosemary oil also works!)
A green crystal; Moldavite (renewal) or moss agate (abundance) works well.
One healthy plant
Place your candles on each side of the plant of your choice, and lay the crystal in the soil of its container.
Cast your circle.
Anoint both candles: Start from the middle and proceed to draw the oil upwards, then finish by coming from the middle to the bottom of the candle.
Sit comfortably in front of your set up and visualize the candle’s flame dancing along to the renewal of Spring.
When ready, chant:
“O Horned God I call to thee
Sow the seed of rebirth in me.
O Maiden Mother I seek your light
Bless the passage of this rite.
In celebration of our coming Spring
and every life your essence brings
together now we join in song
and thank our Gaia to which we belong.
Visualize the blaze of the candles bursting with cleansing, renewing power. Thank the God and Goddess.
Snuff them. (do not blow out!)
Close your circle.
