Springtime Celebrations?

Coming from a Roman Catholic background, I've always felt that springtime and easter are of some importance.

I'm curious why this time of year is important to other members and what you do, if anything, to celebrate or mark it.

Springtime is a very important part of my path. It's when the sowing season really begins, and for me is when the year begins. Between the Pomonalia (Nov 1st) and the Ides of March, time is in a bit of a vacuum - it's a gap, an inhaled breath. But March and the beginning of Spring - it's the great exhale, the beginning. I feel energised, inspired. Can't wait.

I like to start waking up the garden, tidying up, seeing the things that are already popping up their heads, planning the next project. I also like starting to getting out as much as possible, walking, cycling.

 

Whilst I know many use the depths of winter to start planning the next projects, I use this time. I like the energy the new seasons bring.

 

I can't wait for all the rain to stop and finally be allowed back on the beaches!

I'm not ready for Spring just yet .... I have this awful feeling that we are not done with Winter and that everything that is beginning to grow will be surprised and stopped by some cruel weather to come ... and I'm not a pessimist :) We have catkins and snowdrops and aconites aplenty ... even some primroses in sheltered spots but I fear they have been duped! We shall see

I absolutely love spring, for me at the moment it feels like a thursday night when you know the weekend is coming! I am a Beltane child and literally come to life in May. Ostara is nearly a full month earlier than Easter this year, we get it earlier yippee! The garden sorting will have to wait for now though as Naomi says I think we may be in for a last winter blast in March

      It happens rarely. My clearest recollection is of realising that I was dreaming of driving my first car.  I decided it would be interesting if it would fly and then decided to disappear into a mass of red clouds. I've also found myself facing some rather unfriendly, snake eyed rabbits in a warren.  I think that was my first lucid dream.  I had been flying (again) over the countryside and decided to go underground.  I was very young at the time. Nothing deep or particularly spiritual, I'm afraid.  Imagination plays more of a part in my practice than does lucid dreaming.

      Hi everyone, Hope you're well.  I've been discussing lucid dreaming with a friend and it led me to want to ask folk on here how, if at all, lucid dreaming forms part of your pagan path?  Some of my experiences of a heightened sense of reality, vividness and impactfulness of experience, have been through lucid dreams.  The feeling of being aware that one is dreaming and able to make conscious choices and even alter the 'outer' aspects of the content of the dream is quite unmistakable.  I've engaged with some whom I consider to be personified deity and Otherworldly mentors in this way. Experiences that I'll always carry with me. I would love to hear of your thoughts or experiences of lucid dreaming. Best  ED

      I’ve posted a link (in links) to a BBC article in today’s news just to illustrate a bit of the colourful side of Paganism.  Perhaps it will do something to balance my prosaic take on the subject. i know little of Witchcraft but I enjoyed the article and like her approach.

      👍 It's as good a position as any and better than quite a few.

      Yes, it was in Nettle's "Who are your deities?" thread. I said "I seem to have become an atheist. That was never my plan, but here I am." Veggiedancer later said it better than me - "I don’t exactly believe in deities as such. I think they come from  our minds. Archetypes, ways of identify or characterising the spirit/ magic/ life or whatever it is we sense around us. Ways our minds try to explain the unexplainable to us???"
