Spring Equinox Definition

Whilst the Goddess of Spring stirs at Imbolc – she is truly awake at the second of the Spring festivals. Light is on the increase, but at Alban Eiler, the light and dark are equally balanced and provide us with a wonderful opportunity to find balance within our lives. It was traditionally celebrated out of doors, and our ancestors relished in the opportunity to welcome the renewal of life and the fertility of the soil.

Spring Equinox Meaning

The meaning of Alban Eiler is ‘Light of the Earth.’ As Druidry was an oral tradition, there is no surviving written documentation that gives evidence of the equinoxes being celebrated in ancient time, but as the Christians have plagiarized most of the Celtic celebrations, it would appear that this was certainly a part of the ancient druidic wheel.

In Pagan and Wiccan traditions it is also known as Ostara on the wheel of the year. Ostara comes from the word Eostre, an anglo-Saxon Goddess of Spring, whose favorite animal was the Hare. She is said to have mated with a fertility god at this time, giving birth nine months later at the Winter Solstice. The Christian Church adopted this festival as Easter and the Easter Bunny.

Another popular interpretations of this legend is that Eostre found a wounded bird on the ground in late winter, and to save its life she transformed it into a hare. But the transformation was not complete. The bird took the appearance of a hare, but retained the ability to lay eggs. So each Spring festival, as a sign of her fertility and gratitude, the hare would decorate these eggs and leave them as a gift to Eostre.

By now our ancestors were feeling a little toey and hormones were running rampant amongst the tribes. The Spring equinox is a time where natures fertility goes a little crazy. You’ve heard the saying “as mad as a March hare”! At this time in the northern hemisphere the female of the species can conceive a second litter of kittens whilst already pregnant with the first. The males bounce around erratically with frustration when they are rejected by their mates and mayhem is all around.

Wheel Of The Year

The Albans are placed around the ritual circle in order of their season. Spring is in the East, which represents the element of Air. At this time of the year the sun rises due east so it is an ideal time to tune into the element of Air and its qualities of inspiration, rebirth, morning and Spring. Your intuition should be heightened at this time as Spring is certainly in the air.

Alban Eiler Ritual

If you are not celebrating with others of like-mind :

Plant new seeds in your garden or vegetable patch

Be inspired by one of your favorite poets or musicians

Sit quietly, preferably outside, and feel the air as it moves in and out of your lungs and all over your skin. Get in touch with the qualities of the element of Air.

Go for a picnic in the country and breath in the spring and all her new vibrant color and freshness. Look for shamrocks – the symbol of this sabbat.
