Growing Season Preparations
« on: February 07, 2017, 11:54:36 AM »
A little information on what to prepare for:

Feb 12  review of the omen and the lore of the upcoming season of change

Feb 26 is a New Moon and a Blessing of the Seeds - for swapping and to begin indoors
           instead of the normal blessing rite, we are going to honor Frouwa (Freya) as the cloud goddess of Germanic sowing of the seeds (more on that to come)

March 25 Ostara - Blessing of the Gardening Equipment (Plow), since most of us do not actually use a plow... shovels, hoes
           in the Germanic it is Wuotan (Odin) the wind god and Donar (Thor) thunder god

[ this is a little more Germanic or Old German and less Anglo-Saxon ]

There is also Ostra or Ostara the germanic goddess of spring.  I can bring the book and talk about her a bit on Sunday.
