Eostar – Persephone Returns!

Life Bursts Forth

Life Bursts Forth

This is the time of Spring’s return in our Southern Hemisphere. Warmth and growth may be sensed in the land, the flowers can be smelt in the air. The young light that we celebrated at Imbolc, has grown strong and come to balance with the dark. Life bursts forth with new strength. The story of Old tells us that Persephone beloved Daughter, returns from Her journey to the Underworld. Demeter, the Mother, stretches out Her arms – to receive and rejoice. The beloved One, the Lost One, returns with new Wisdom from the depths.

We may step into a new harmony. Where we step, wild flowers may appear; where we dance, despair may turn to hope, sorrow to joy, want to abundance. May our hearts open with the Spring.


Everyday may present a challenge … everyday may be an Underworld Journey: it takes courage to Be. We may be everyday Heras – Courageous Ones: returning constantly with new Wisdom from the depths, showing  up graciously in the present moment, to receive and rejoice. We may be the Lost One and the Mother – all at the same time: and perceiving that in others.

May the true power, wisdom and courage of Spring Equinox go in our hearts and minds.

  1. Hi Glenys

    I hope you are well.

    Just confirming my attendance for Saturday’s Spring Equinox gathering/ritual. I just have a few questions (sorry as I am quite new to this and want to do everything correctly): –

    1. Do I need to transfer the payment to your account and if so what are the details? 2. For the spring mask, can I decorate a mask in floral and animal designs? 3. Has the script been updated from the one through the invite’s link? 4. Is there a preference type of food to bring (keeping in mind that I am a vegetarian)? 5. Is it ok if I wear a green top with jeans? Should a bring a ritual robe (I only have a blue and black Goddess one)? 6. Anything else I should be aware of (I have been reading through all the information requested and I will read it again before Saturday)?

    I really can’t wait – sorry for all the questions. I have never celebrated/completed rituals as a group before.

    Many thanks Melita Moon xx
