If you want to perform a ritual, Ostara is a great time to manifest new beginnings and new life. This can involve writing a detailed list of what you want to manifest in your life, and doing with that list what you feel guided to—burying it in the ground, setting it on fire to make your wishes known, releasing it into the ocean, sleeping with it under your pillow, carrying it around with you in a mojo bag.
You can also call in your spirit guides, deities, fairies, and any other spirits you work with, and ask them to help bring in new things to your life that are only for your highest good. You can also ask for specific things you want in the spring and summer seasons ahead. It’s up to you where you feel comfortable doing this—it could be outside, at home in front of your altar, or even in the privacy of a bathroom if you don’t want other people to hear it. In whatever way you can, I do recommend connecting with nature, even if it’s just holding an egg in your hands with an open window near you. Release your wishes and feelings into the wind, and imagine them getting carried forward by the spirits who work with you.

Because Ostara marks the beginning of spring, this can be a powerful time to work with nature. It can also be very grounding, which honestly, might provide some much-needed relief after Pisces season and going through Mercury retrograde. Connecting to the Earth, to nature, and to the elements of Earth and Wind can do wonders for the soul. That being said, don’t be afraid to open your windows or step outside, even if just for a little bit. This is also a good time to do some spring cleaning.
This holiday marks the beginning of spring, but it’s important nonetheless because it means we’re emerging from the retreat of autumn and hibernation of winter. Spring is the time when we, just like plants and animals, emerge and begin to enjoy the warmer temperatures, longer days, shorter nights, and greater energy in the air.
Spring is the beginning of our emergence into the world, and summer is the culminating season of this energy. When autumn arrives, it marks our return to focus inward, which intensifies in the winter months. While we’re at the beginning of spring, before that desire to do more and be outdoors more often increases, this is a great time to do spring cleaning in every aspect of your life—physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. Release the old, close old chapters, dust off things you want to use, smudge or spray the areas that need it, and make space for new energy to come into your life.
