The March Equinox, also known as the Vernal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, marks the start of astronomical spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and the start of astronomical fall in the Southern Hemisphere. During the equinox, the length of day and night are nearly equal all over the world, with the Sun shining directly on the equator. This is because the Earth’s axis is tilted neither towards nor away from the Sun, resulting in an equal distribution of sunlight across the globe.

Ostara or Alban Eilir is a pagan holiday that celebrates the Spring Equinox, which occurs on March 20th this year. It is a time of renewal and rebirth, as the days become longer and warmer, and nature begins to bloom and awaken from its winter slumber.

Ostara is a time of balance and harmony, with the equal length of day and night symbolizing the balance of light and dark, male and female, and other opposing forces in nature. It is also a time to honor the goddess of fertility and the god of the hunt, who represent the cycle of life, death, and rebirth.

Some common customs and rituals associated with Ostara include decorating eggs, planting seeds, and creating nature altars or shrines. Many people also participate in outdoor rituals, such as lighting fires, drumming, or dancing, to celebrate the return of the sun and the coming of spring.
