Ritual Passages — The Vernal Equinox

No soon­er is St Patrick­’s Day behind us than the Ver­nal Equinox — Ostara — is upon us, actu­al­ly on March 20th this year.

Today we’ll be tak­ing the theme of St Patrick­’s Day (and March 17 is also the date of the Roman fes­ti­val of Lib­er­alia, a feast cel­e­brat­ing boys reach­ing man­hood) and broad­en­ing it out with a more gen­er­al Celtic theme and the hint of approach­ing Spring.

The Ver­nal Equinox is World Sto­ry­telling Day, a cel­e­bra­tion of oral sto­ry­telling, which also reminds those of us in the vir­tu­al world of Sec­ond Life that Fan­ta­sy Faire is approach­ing, run­ning this year from April 20–30, and once again this year Radio Riel will be run­ning Fan­ta­sy Faire Radio dur­ing the course of the event — see fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com for details.
