Statement of purpose
I/we Have come together tonight in celebration of the festival of Ostara. This is the celebration of the spring equinox, as the sun has been reborn, and is growing in strength.
It is a time to celebrate the renewal of life, as I/we can start to see it manifesting itself on the earth. This is a time for balance, and staring new projects or journeys. It is a time of learning, and growing, as life all around us learns, and grows during this time of year.
Act of Power
Balancing charm
Gather up your black and white stones, your feather, and soil, and place them in the bag that you have prepared. Holding the bag in one hand now light the white candle and say

I light this candle in representation of Mother Earth, and the Moon Goddess with all her vast knowledge, and eternal loving nature, and nurture, as you gave birth to life

Now light the black candle and say

I light this candle in representation of Father Sky, and the Sun. With all your energy, magic, loving, and nurturing to help us grow.

Hold the bag within both hands and concentrate on balance within the world, on the earth, and in the sky, and within yourself, and say

Positioned between Earth, and Sky, Moon, and Sun,
Now the magics just begun.
As this balancing bag has been created so to carry it with you when ever you feel the need for balance within your life, and keep stored within the boundaries of the altar when not carried as a representation of the balance in life.

Prayer for the coming season
Our hearts is a devoted feeling,
Vainly should our lips express.
We come before your altar kneeling,
And pray this time and place you bless.
We ask for blessings of the season,
Your kindness shown with all its reason.
So mote it be.
