Cleanse yourself and your space as you ready for ritual. Set up your altar in spring decor, foliage, pastels, flowers, eggs, animal statues, or any other decoration you may have. Place the empty basket in the center of your altar. Set out all your other supplies around your basket. Set your pen and paper near you so you can reach it.
Basket of Eostre
Stand before your altar and take a deep breath. If possible, have a window open to have the fresh spring air. Imagine the goddess, Eostre, the goddess of spring and the namesake for the holiday of Easter. She is a deity of renewal and rebirth. Visualize her in the new spring landscape, surrounded by her creatures of growth. Her energy spreads through the land, awakening the sleeping plants. Surrounded by green and flowers, she warms every heart that comes upon her. Hold this visualization as you continue.
Blessing of green,
Blessing of new growth,
Blessing of Spring.
As we help to renew others,
Fulfill this awakening,
With the joy of the season!"
May we spread her mirth!
Be with us!"
