Happy Spring Equinox!


The sacred hare awakens the Goddess Eostre/Ostara from Her long slumber. The northern hemisphere becomes green and fertile once again; we are blessed with the sun's warmth and the earth's abundance.

This is also the time of year when we partake of Holy Communion by ingesting the chocolatey goodness of Her sacred rabbit. Chant the ancient mantra while doing so: nom nom nom!

Now go ye and fulfill your religious duty.

All hail the chocolatey rabbit! Spring has sprung and the rabbit laid many eggs made of chocolate. All have rejoiced!

Blessed Ostara! I hope you have a wonderful day of balance before the light overcomes the darkness. I have cut back on refined sugars, so instead of eating a sacred chocolate bunny today I am making an egg in a basket.

To go and fulfill my religious duty? That would mean to go and worship St. Sex which I will obediently do :)

I'm just going to assume "sacred rabbit" is a euphemism....and use it prolificly.

Robin Larkspur said...

and they shall all go forth amongst the land and offer the Holy Chant of "Nom nom nomminy nom"

I ran out of chocolate 2 days ago. I always feel a little panicked when I am out of chocolate.

HAPPY SPRING!

For Lindt, purveyors of chocolate bunny goodness, we give thanks to the Goddess.

Happy Ostara!

I've been having the worse chocolate and icecream cravings lately...I gave up meat till Shazam Day and yet I am craving chocolate and ice cream..weird.

Bird said...

A very blessed Ostara to you too! Love the beautiful painting and I would also LOVE to partake in some chocolate... but alas, I cannot. Have a bunch for me. :D

Bright blessings,
Bird

I texted my girlfriend a greeting, which she (being half asleep) misread as Happy Vaginal Equinox. Does that count?
