2007 Blog-Off For Breast Cancer-Round One-Laughter
When the Sun begins to cast long shadows and snow is melting away we watch the sky and await a special day.
On the single day inwhich the Day and Night are equal in length, the festival of The Vernal Equinox: The Legend of Ostara, begins. For all Winter the energies of the Oak and Holly have been dorment. Winter is the time of the deep sleep. Hibernation of all will end with the awakening.
The Earthen creatures know the time. Pisces, the two fishes hangs onto the new moon, and bows down as it ends it rule. The end of the Zodiac is completed and it is time for us to greet
Aries the Ram.
The true beginning of the Zodiac, and the Equinox rides upon the Great Ram's back.
The Princess needs help to find her Prince
If she does not Marry the Prince on this day, Spring will be lost
and the Earth will crumble in one cycle of the Calendar.
Overhead the Princess spies a Fine Bird in the sky
She calls out to the Bird,
"Oh Fine Bird, will you aid me to find my Prince?
I must find him in haste for all life depends on it!"
The Fine Bird swooped down to the Princess and said,
"Oh Princess of Earth I will take you to your Prince.
Hop upon my back and I will fly you there in haste."
The Princess climbed upon the back of the Fine Bird
and flew like the wind over land and sea to find her Prince.
The Fine Bird brought her safely to
He was happy,
And so was She.
But the Fine Bird was not.
For the Fine Bird had froze its wings on its speedy flight,
and its wings fell off.
(the bird thought to itself: "Is this the thanks I get for draggin that Heffer across land and sea for the sake of the world? Wings falling off? How am I supposed to impress a mate
for me in this mess?)
The Fine Bird was a fine sorry sight.
The Princess/Goddess looked upon the Fine Bird and said,
"Oh Fine Bird I am so sorry your wings fell off.
I pitty you."
She took her staff from beneath her cloak and gently touched the Find Bird
on the head with her staff.
And with her great Magic she gained upon this day of equal Day and Night
and the energy from the battle of Oak and Holly she transformed the Fine Bird into
a Long-Eared Hare. But not just any Hare.(time to watch a video) A special Hare.
For that Hare, The March Hare was once a bird.
So to the envy of all creatures the March Hare could lay eggs!
And with the Magic of the Equinox
from the Battle of the the Oak and Holly on the day of equal Day and Night
The Princess/Goddess and
Her Prince joined in a Marriage of Spring.
So when the indoor garden grows
and buds begin to show,
and the earth gives up and allows life to poke out
And the days are bright and the snow is melting.....
We see the fruition of the coupling of the Goddess and the Prince.
When the Egg-laying Rabbit roams the land.....
We know that Spring has been successful, and we can count on a future after the completed year.
(And we now know how the Hare and the Eggs got their significance.)
The Prince will see to it the crops will rise and be ready for the Harvest, in time to greet the Croan.
