Butterfly Pea tea- the blue flowers are commonly brewed into an herbal tea, often alongside ingredients like lemongrass, honey, and lemon. When the acidity of the pea flower tea changes, the color changes as well. This color-changing quality makes butterfly pea flower a popular ingredient for mixing with other teas you enjoy to make their more beautiful in the cup.
Amazonite is a very soothing stone that will calm and balance the mind and body. Amazonite can help heal emotional trauma, calm worries and fears, and keep a person’s masculine and feminine energies in balance.
What is the Spring Equinox?
In the Northern Hemisphere, the Spring Equinox happens between March 19 and 22. During this time, the sun’s rays hit the equator directly, making day and night the same length. The most important part of the day is when the sun is at its zenith, which is when it is directly above the equator. This is the first day of spring, when light finally wins over darkness. The earth starts to wake up, and plants and animals start to come out of hibernation.
What does Ostara mean?
Ostara is a Pagan solar holiday that celebrates the warmth of spring, the sun’s light, and the time when the earth wakes up. This holiday is a time for Pagans to celebrate balance, renewal, and new life. Flowers that bloom in the spring, fairies, butterflies, rabbits, and eggs are all signs of Ostara. Due to the lack of primary sources about this holiday, the Pagan community has a lot of different ideas about where Ostara came from. One idea is that the name “Ostara” comes from the name of the Anglo-Saxon goddess “Eostre.” Another idea is that Eostre is more of an English goddess from Kent County. Even though there are questions about where she came from, Eostre is linked to the modern Pagan traditions of Ostara.
