Begin the celebration by cleansing your ritual space.
 
Sweep out the ritual space. After the Cleansing, ground to help focus for the ritual.
 
"Eostara, the Vernal Equinox. Once again the sun is over the equator and day and night are equal. The light ascendeth as the wheel of the year turneth. Now is the time for letting go of the darkness and limitations and looking toward the light and finding new strengths. May the light illumine my path and give me strength to overcome limitations. I welcome the elements into my Sacred Circle
to help ward this space for a time"
 
"(face East) Hail East! Power of Air
Thou who knowest the time of morning, dawn.
Bring me thy gift of passion and join me in my Sacred Circle
that I may see the vision of my path ahead and strive to walk it.
Welcome East (lift candle and replace it) Blessed Be!"
 
Offer a flower to East now.
 
"(face South) Hail South! Power of Fire
Thou who knowest the time of noontide.
Bring to me thy gift of passion and join me in my Sacred Circle
that I may be rid of limitations and look for strengths along my path.
Welcome South (lift candle and replace)Blessed Be!"
 
Offer a flower of thanks to South now.
 
"Hail West! Power of Water
Thou who knowest the time of evening, of dusk.
Bring to me thy gift of dreaming and join me in my Sacred Circle
that I may find new dreams along my path.
Welcome West (lift candle and replace) Blessed Be!"
 
Offer a flower of thanks to West now.
 
(face North) Hail North! Power of Earth
Thou who knowest the time of midnight
Bring to me thy gift of knowing and join me in my Sacred Circle
that I may find new knowlege to help me on my path.
Welcome North (lift candle and replace) Blessed Be!"
 
Offer a flower of thanks to North now.
 
(Call God--Green Man)
(Call Goddess--Eostara)
 
(Dye boiled eggs in the center of the circle. The water
should be under the West alter and the eggs in a basket under the East alter. Meditation: think about the positive growth and fertility of your life and your relationships with others. Imagine your life and love life, work and social life exactly as you want it and send these thoughts out into the heavens to be recieved by the God and Goddess as a supplication. Now, quietly draw the representation of your tailisman on the eggs. The quiet is essential to keeping the mood of the meditation.)
 
(release god)
(release goddess)
 
Thank the elements for their presence in the Sacred Circle.
 
(face East) Farewell, East! Powers of Air
May thy gift of dawning vision live ever in my heart.
Farewell East (lift candle, replace)Blessed Be!"
 
(face South) Farewell, South! Power of Fire
May thy gift of bright passion live ever in my heart.
Farewell South (lift candle, replace)Blessed Be!"
 
(face West) Farewell, West! Power of Water
May thy gift of dreaming live ever in my heart.
Farewell West (lift candle, replace) Blessed Be!"
 
(face North) Farewell, North! Power of Earth
May thy gift of knowing live ever in my heart.
Farewell North (lift candle, replace) Blessed Be!"
 
"This circle is open and yet unbroken. May the peace of Eostara and the Green Man go in my heart. Merry meet, and merry part, and merry meet again! Blessed Be!"
