Eggshell Candles for Ostara

Perfect for the ritual altar, these candles are easy to make and pretty to look at.

You Will Need:
Raw eggs
Wax beads
Birthday candles
Egg dye (optional)
Craft scissors

Tap the egg gently but firmly on the top, "pointed" end. Peel back a small section of shell and allow the egg to fall out. Try to keep the bottom 3/4 of the egg intact. Reserve the eggs for recipes.

Rinse the inside of the eggshells very carefully with very hot water. Set them on a rack to dry.

If you like, take a craft scissor and trim around the broken edge, or break off pieces by hand for a more jagged look.

At this point, if you want to dye the egg shells, you can do so. Again, be careful with the delicate shells. Set them again on a rack or paper towel to dry.

Fill the candle ½ to 3/4 of the way with craft wax beads. Insert a birthday candle into the center for an easy wick. If necessary, trim off the bottom of the birthday candle so that it is even with the wax beads, or you can just let it burn down.

Set it in an egg holder or a candle holder where it fits snugly.

Roasted Lamb for Ostara

Lamb is in season during the spring, so this is the perfect Ostara meal for us carnivorous types. For many of our ancestors, lamb was the first real meat they got each year, after the cold winter months. It's warm and tender, and the citrus marinade helps make it nice and juicy. Serve it with a side of homemade mint chutney to add a bit of coolness to the flavor.

  • Leg of lamb
  • 1 C white cooking wine
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • juice from 2 oranges (or 1/2 C orange juice)
  • 1 Tbsp. freshly chopped rosemary
  • Pepper and sea salt to taste
  • Olive oil (about 2 Tbs.)

To make the marinade, combine everything except the lamb in a bowl. Blend it together with a whisk. Pour into a plastic bag and then add the leg of lamb. Seal the bag, and let it sit overnight.

Allow the lamb to reach room temperature before you put it in the oven. Remove from the bag, place in a roasting pan (along with all the marinade juices), and bake on the lower rack at 450 degrees. Roast the lamb until it reaches an internal temperature of about 135, or about an hour.

The secret to a good lamb dish is to not overcook it, so it should still be pink in the middle when it comes out of the oven. Place it on a rack, cover with foil, and allow it to sit in its own juices for abut twenty minutes before serving. This will help he roasting process finish without drying out the meat.

and that is how to make a good and deli-sous lamb. Good Luck! and Good Eats!  Sammi )0(

March 21 -- Ostara -- Spring or The Vernal Equinox

Also known as: Lady Day or Alban Eiler (Druidic)

As Spring reaches its midpoint, night and day stand in perfect balance, with light on the increase. The young Sun God now celebrates a hierogamy (sacred marriage) with the young Maiden Goddess, who conceives. In nine months, she will again become the Great Mother. It is a time of great fertility, new growth, and newborn animals.

The next full moon (a time of increased births) is called the Ostara and is sacred to Eostre the Saxon Lunar Goddess of fertility (from whence we get the word estrogen, whose two symbols were the egg and the rabbit.

The Christian religion adopted these emblems for Easter which is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. The theme of the conception of the Goddess was adapted as the Feast of the Annunciation, occurring on the alternative fixed calendar date of March 25 Old Lady Day, the earlier date of the equinox. Lady Day may also refer to other goddesses (such as Venus and Aphrodite), many of whom have festivals celebrated at this time. 

Traditional Foods:
Leafy green vegetables, Dairy foods, Nuts such as Pumpkin, Sunflower and Pine. Flower Dishes and Sprouts. 

Herbs and Flowers:
Daffodil, Jonquils, Woodruff, Violet, Gorse, Olive, Peony, Iris, Narcissus and all spring flowers. 

Jasmine, Rose, Strawberry, Floral of any type. 

Sacred Gemstone:

Special Activities:
Planting seeds or starting a Magickal Herb Garden. Taking a long walk in nature with no intent other than reflecting on the Magick of nature and our Great Mother and her bounty.

My New Cauldron

This is my new cauldron that I just perched at this New Age shop, that I just happens to run across when I was out and about in Hillcrest, I can't remember the name of the shop, but as soon as I do you will be the first to know, It's a pretty big one, I was looking for something a little smaller so that I could put it on my alter, but I love this one now, it's perfect!  It's the right size, this is the one that the goddess meant for me to have, Blessed Be!  So now I'm just waiting on the full moon to come so I can do a cauldron blessing, before I do any working with it. I'm so excited! And it has the symbol that I use when I sign my name ( the Goddess symbol), I like that vary much also,   Sammi )0(
