ㅤStory via hocuspocus13 – “Today is the Spring Equinox, or Ostara, a point of perfect balance on the journey through the Wheel of the Year. Night and day are of equal length and in perfect equilibrium – dark and light, masculine and feminine, inner and outer, in balance. But the year is now waxing and at this moment light defeats the dark. The natural world is coming alive, the Sun is gaining in strength and the days are becoming longer and warmer.
ㅤOstara takes its name after the Germanic goddess, Eostre/Ostara, who was traditionally honoured with festivals to celebrate fertility, renewal and re-birth. It was from Eostre that the Christian celebration of Easter evolved, and indeed the naming of the hormone Eostrogen, essential to women’s fertility. The Goddess Ostara has the shoulders and head of a hare, the forerunner to the Easter Bunny.
ㅤThis Ostara Earl Grey Tea Loaf is a simple, light, fruity bread recipe designed to use up the winter stores, clear the cupboard ready for spring and use the symbol of the festival – the egg! You can play around with the fruit and decorative ingredients of this recipe (to use stores) as long as you keep the sugar, flour and egg the same.”
