I almost gave up my life for my children
Today is the Spring or Vernal Equinox when the days and nights are (pretty much) of equal length and the official first day of Spring! In Celtic tradition, Spring Equinox is called Ostara, and it is the celebration of new life, fertility, love, and planting new seeds of ideas, dreams, and desires (as well as actual seeds since this is the beginning of the planting season). They spoke about the Sun God coming back to lie down on the Mother Earth and make love to create new life. Hot, right!?
Today is a very powerful day to get in touch with your desires and set intentions. I’m going to walk you through how to do it.
Celebrating these seasonal holidays deeply connects me to Earth, which helps me to embrace, celebrate, and feel my wild, feminine soul. I’ve also experienced firsthand how powerful it is to set intentions (ask for something I want) during times when the Earth’s energy and magic can support those intentions being brought into reality. To translate: when the Earth is sprouting new life, it supports me sprouting my dreams and ideas into life.
What’s cool is that many of the secular traditions of Easter (which is comes from the word Ostara) are the exact same traditions people have been practicing in Earth-based religions way before Christianity. Dyeing eggs, covering tables with daffodils, and bringing in other symbols of fertility (like bunnies) were all adopted by Christians when they were promoting the religion. So you’re already doing a lot of stuff that connects you to the Earth – it’s just nice to really know why you’re doing it and put some intention behind it.
I believe that holidays take on a whole new meaning when we wrap them in ritual, which to me is using symbols and infusing them with personal intentions.
In my new Moonly membership program, Whole Woman, our community receives steps to do a new ritual every Moon cycle to support them in a certain area of their lives. Wrapping personal growth with ritual and other feminine practices has had the biggest impact on my life and my clients’ lives over the past few years. Today, I want to share one of those rituals with you!
And if you feel called to check out Whole Woman, you can read all about this unique program and see if it’s a fit for you here: WholeWoman.Me

Simple Spring Equinox Ritual:
Here is a ritual for you to do today on your own, with friends, or with your family. I do this with my kids every year!
I did this ritual last year and asked to own the retreat center I was looking at in Massachusetts. A month later we had an accepted offer. Magic!
Please let me know in the comments on the blog or on Instagram how this goes for you. I would also love to see pictures so tag me on Instagram!
If you’re desiring more ways to feel connected to your unique, creative, feminine soul and the magic of the world around you in a simple, approachable way, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read about Whole Woman. We already have hundreds of women connecting and learning together in the membership, and I know everyone would love to have another like-minded woman like yourself in the group. Enrollment is open until 11:59Pm ET on Thursday, March 22nd.
Happy Ostara, my dear! Sending you blessings for all of your dreams blooming into form.
