The Spring Equinox is just around the corner. We want to share one of our favorite traditions with you. Let’s create Ostara Intention Eggs!
Are you getting into the Spring spirit? Noticing the signs of Spring?
Do you have family favorite Ostara Rituals? There are so many different ones that you can use for this time of year. It is all about planting those seeds and watching them grow and manifest!
Eggs are a great way to infuse intention into your goals and fertilize your garden!
If you’re subscribed to our Youtube channel, you may have heard us talk about this ritual in our video: Working with the Energies of Ostara – Egg Magic at the Spring Equinox.
Creating Your Intention Eggs
- Hard boiled eggs
- Writing utensils (Pen, sharpie, white crayon, etc.)
- Natural Dyes (if desired)
- Hold your intention in your mind as you gather your items!
- Cleanse your space using your preferred method.
- Be sure to Infuse all of the items with your Intention!
- Have each person write their intentions on one egg – this can be words, sigils, runes, etc.
- If you want to decorate your eggs as well be sure to use natural dyes, free of chemicals
- Once you feel satisfied with your eggs, bury them beneath new seeds or seedlings. We recommend using compostable starter pots if you plan on replanting your seedlings once the ground thaws.
- Or you can take them out into your backyard, the yard of a family member or friend, or to a local park or forest where you would be able to Safely and Legally disturb the soil. Bury your eggs near the roots of a tree or an existing plant.
- As the egg is reabsorbed into nature and the plant grows, so grows the energy powering your intentions.
Note: To Make this ritual vegan simply substitute unbleached paper for the egg.
