Show #74: The Ostara Show

In this episode, recorded in February in the midst of a cold and dreary winter, we talk about the Spring Equinox, Ostara,  how it’s been perceived throughout history, and what it means to us. We talk about “spring cleaning”, Passover, daylight savings time, and wind up in a discussion about mid-life and astrology with a focus on Saturn and the Saturn return. We talk about an Ostara ritual, sympathetic magic and what’s thawing out. And finally we talk about the mythology behind standing an egg on its end at the equinox, and its occurrence in a West Wing episode “Evidence of Things Not Seen” (a screencap from which appears in the header of this post).

Happy spring, everyone!
