The 20th of March is the day in which both day and night last exactly the same and marks the beginning of Spring and Summer (in the Northern Hemisphere, that is).
This is a day of balance, rebirth, renewal, magic, romance, as well as a fertility day.
During the Equinox, the sun crosses over the Equator, bringing either Winter or Summer in each Hemisphere. It has always been celebrated as a magic time, pagans usually call it Ostara and you inner Goddess is yearning to celebrate this day and use up the magic that comes with it.

How to celebrate the Vernal Equinox and bring its magic into your life
1.Plant new life
Our favorite way to honor the beginning of Spring and time of rebirth is by planting a new plant. Ideally you can plant something you really like to eat yourself, like strawberries, an avocado tree, a cherry tree or some yummy peaches. Just take the seed and plant it mindfully.
This is also a great ritual to do with children.
2.Have a picnic in nature
The best way to welcome spring is by having a walk around nature and than have a picnic filled with Spring foods. You can use plenty of fruits, vegetable, eggs, sprouts and any sort of local produce.
3.Decorate your home
Let your home know Spring is here by putting some flowers (bouquets or pots). You can also decorate some eggs and put them around your home. Lets have some color!
Sex is always fun, but even more when it becomes a ritual to welcome the Spring! Since, this day is supposed to be a day of fertility, if you are trying to get pregnant, this would be the ideal time to try.
What better way to honor Spring than by celebrating our bodies and sexuality?
