  • Celebrating Eostara
  • Listen:
  • This week on The Spiral Dance we celebrate Eostara; The Spring Equinox

    Astronomically, the Equinox occurs on Tuesday, March 20. We'll be talking about the history of Spring Equinox - the role that it has played in cultures down the ages:

    So, we'll talk about the Norse Goddess Eoster. Is she a bonefide Goddess, or just a fiction created by one author? Does it matter, really?

    Plus ya can't talk about this time of the year without mentioning Rabbits & Eggs; and, of course, the Balance of Light and Dark.

    The Spring Equinox marks the point in the solar year when day and night are of equal duration, and the daytime once again becomes longer than night.

    In Pagan mythology it marks the time when The God, who was reborn at the Winter Solstice, is now coming into young adulthood and is - awakening to his sexuality.

    Be well. Do good Enjoy the show!
