In the neopagan Wheel of the Year, 21st March is the festival of Ostara in the Northern Hemisphere. Ostara marks the time of the Spring Equinox when day and night are equal in length. As the days grow longer this is a time of passing and transition. It is powerful time of balance and thus a time of magic, fertility and new life.
