Ostara blessing

Tonight is the Sabbat of Ostara, the Vernal Equinox. This evening, go outside and gave towards the setting sun and you will be greeted by a wonderful sight. From SpaceWeather.com:

VENUS AND THE MOON: When the sun goes down tonight, step outside and look west. You'll see Venus and the slender crescent Moon beaming together through the glow of sunset. If you miss the pair on March 20th, try again on the 21st. They will be beautifully close together on both nights.

Some great reading about Ostara:

You Call It Easter, We Call It OstaraGreat article, with lots of ideas, that even utilizes some information from the original The Wicker Man movie! A rather good article, unfortunately marred by the "egg standing" myth.
