Ostara - Spring Equinox Seed Ritual
Seed Blessing Ritual for the Spring Equinox
The Spring Equinox is a traditional time for many Witches to perform blessings over the seeds which they gathered in the fall of the previous year, though store-bought packets of seeds may be blessed as well. Perform the blessing at sunset in the center of a clockwise-cast circle. Place the seeds to be blessed in a basket or cauldron. If the seeds are contained within a packet, place the entire packet of seeds in the basket or cauldron. Using an athame or wand, thrice draw a pentagram in the air over the seeds, and say:
"As winter’s reign comes to an end and spring brings warmth and light, the spirit of these seeds I do call forth on Ostara’s sacred night. From your rest awaken now with birth! You shall, in time, grow green and strong in the soil of Mother Earth. So mote it be!"
