On today, the Vernal Equinox, the Asatru Folk Assembly would like to wish all our Folk a bright and blessed Ostara. Ostara is a triumphant time. Named after the great Goddess of the dawn and of Spring, Ostara is the time that life and vitality return after the long winter. As our people always have done, so the dawn rolls from out of the east, conquering all before her. Light banishes darkness from the face of the land and clothes the barren and the desolate with beauty and abundance. Wherever we go, whatever we do, let us spread beauty, life, and vibrant abundance. This Goddess and her holy tide are so important to our Folk that her name has never left our lips and her symbols are still vibrant and alive, the hair, the lamb, the chick. Just like the dawn and the Spring, Ostara is unstoppable and irresistible. Ostara’s blessings to you and yours from the AFA!

Hail the radiant Goddess of Spring!
Hail Ostara!
