What is Ostara and How to Celebrate it

Spring Equinox Meaning

Like the determined bulb sprouting deep in the earth beneath the snow, Spring has been pushing its way forth since Imbolc, and with the Spring Equinox, it is officially here! Ostara is the celebration of the Spring Equinox, the official start of Spring. It marks one of two days of the year where we experience (nearly) equal daylight and nighttime hours. While this can vary based on your location in the world, the Spring Equinox and its sabbat Ostara marks the time where daylight hours strike a close balance with night. From this day forward until the Summer Solstice, the hours of daylight will grow in strength – and with it, your intentions.

Ostara Magic

Also known as the vernal equinox, this is a time to honor the balance between light and dark, to welcome the return of warmth and growth. As the nature spirits stir from their long winter slumber, we’re reminded that new life is on its way. Magically, it is a time of fertility, rebirth and renewal. And while that growth and renewal can be seen physically all around, it is also about spiritual growth. Clear out old energy and make space for new opportunities, to make room for whatever you wish to call in with the abundance of Spring. Celebrate the transition of the seasons, and plant the seeds you wish to sprout in your life with the growth and blessings of the season.

And what better way to celebrate the renewal of life and growth all around, than mixing those beautiful, aromatic Ostara herbs into some Spring equinox drinks? Let’s dive into some ingredients you will use in these Ostara drink recipes, and even inspire some spring equinox food ideas for a rejuvenating, nourishing Ostara menu.

(Psst. Spring also brings Aries season in the northern Hemisphere. Keep an eye out for my Aries moon blog (coming soon), or Check out my Aries moon mule and syrup recipe over here, for drinks to tune into that passionate and exciting Aries energy, alongside your spring equinox celebration!)

Ostara Celebration

Ostara Herbs & Ingredients for Spring Equinox Recipes

As a celebration of Spring, a perfect way to observe Ostara and the growth of the season, is through the things growing in your very own garden. From fresh herbs like mint, to edible flowers like rose and violet, there are a plethora of ingredients to choose from for your Ostara recipes and magic. Here are some of my favorite Ostara herbs and edible ingredients. Used them in the Ostara drink recipes further below, or to inspire.

Ostara Herbs & Edible Ingredients:

  • Rose: What better flower to mark a season of beauty, than lovely rose? Rose is also great for spirituality, love, and healing. Enjoy in your Ostara recipes through a rose tea, syrup, rose water, or an elegant rose liqueur cocktail.
  • Violet: Arising in late winter, these gorgeous purple blossoms inspire peace and the promise of spring. Associated with the planet Venus, violets are wonderful for luck, love, hope, healing, and connecting to the fae.
  • Honey: With flowers abloom, bees are busy buzzing around. The product of their hard work, honey is perfect for the occasion. Incorporate for healing and health, love, happiness, wisdom, and sensuality magic. Add to your Ostara teas, cocktails, or drizzle atop a seasonal fruit salad.
  • Maple: With maple harvest season beginning at the first spring stirrings in February, Maple makes a great sweetener for your Ostara kitchen magic. And its loving energy is perfect for spring, and longevity and money!
  • Lemon: With its bright, refreshing flavor and cleansing aroma, lemon is ideal for Ostara drinks. Use in recipes like lemon bars, cake, or in delicious drinks for renewal, joy and creativity. You can check out a magical limoncello recipe in my book Moon, Magic, Mixology.
  • Eggs: A symbol of potential, rebirth, fertility, and used for cleansing and protection rites, eggs are amazing for Ostara recipes. Interested in Slavic practices? You can make pisanki, traditional Slavic patterned dyed egg shell. I highly recommend these kits from Etsy.  
  • Milk/Cream: With the renewal of life all around, milk is a common Ostara ingredient. A wonderful ingredient to work with as we nourish our souls, goals, and life all around.
Other Ingredients for Ostara
  • Cherries, dandelions, edible flowers, parsley, and pretty much anything in your garden! Check out your local farmers market, and see what is in season.

Pairing your Ostara Drink Recipes with Spring Equinox Foods

What better way to enjoy a drink, than with some food to match? Drinks are perfect to pair with food, and can be just the way the usher in the season and tune into the spiritual vibrations at hand. As a celebration of the renewal of life, there are many dishes to enjoy for an Ostara feast. Here are a few ideas:

Ostara Food Ideas:

  • Eggs: Just like with egg cocktails, egg dishes like deviled eggs, hard boiled eggs, or egg salad are perfect for an Ostara Menu.
  • Salads: Try an edible spring flower salad with your floral drink, or a strawberry vinaigrette salad.
  • Vegetables: With Ostara, there’s no better time to celebrate your garden. Think of your garden vegetables, like asparagus, carrots, radishes, or leafy greens. In Poland, we have a cucumber salad called Mizeria, which would be just perfect for this time! I love to use this USDA website to see what it’s in season, but the specifics can vary based on your location.
  • Herbs: On the subject of the garden, herbs are wonderful. Ingredients like parsley help inspire strength and sensuality, while mint can refresh your mind and taste buds. See what is in blooming this time of year.
  • Dairy: We already tacked dairy in the drink ingredient section. But beyond cocktails and mocktails, you can enjoy dairy based dishes for Ostara.
  • Lemon: For sweets, cookies like lemon bars makes a wonderful spring equinox food to bring in joy and renewal in a delicious way. Even lemon cake, or just a tiny bit of grated lemon atop yogurt or a chosen dish.
  • Honey: Spring flowers bring bees to life! There’s no better time than to sweeten dishes and drinks with abundant, luscious honey. Already mentioned in the drink ingredient section, consider dishes or sweets that use honey, such as honey cakes. 
  • Sliced Meats: If you are someone who eats meat, sliced meats such as ham, are a common season dish. In Poland, we celebrate easter with an array of sliced meats and polish sausage you can use to make your own kanapki, or open faced sandwiches. If you are interested in some Polish dishes, I highly recommend this gorgeous Polish recipe book.
