Welcome to HVGW's Ostara page! This holiday is traditionally observed on the Spring Equinox, and has a long history of traditions associated with the season. As the Earth turns green, eggs, baby animals, and fresh flowers were common symbols to celebrate the coming of Spring--as well as the untapped potential of the year ahead.

In honor of the return of Spring, HVGW will be celebrating with our annual Ostara egg hunt, followed by a ritual involving the ancient arts of Oovomancy and herbalism. Oovomancy is a form of divination which has been used throughout the world to predict an outcome or glean more knowledge of a situation. On this day, we will be using it to discern predictions and advice for our year ahead. Next, in line with the theme of this time of year, we will each plant a seed representing qualities we want to take with us in the year ahead. You will be able to take this plant home with you to nourish in the months ahead!

Finally, we will all meet at the sand circle to kick off the first Rhoneymeade bonfire of 2024! There will be food, dancing, and of course, friendship and merriment!

Hail and Wassail!

Location will be provided on RSVP.  Please RSVP via Ostara 2024 RSVP Form by Thurs March 21st.
