(circa March 21)

Flowers should be laid on the altar, placed around the
circle and strewn on the ground. The cauldron can be
filled with spring water and flowers, and buds and blossoms
may be worn as well. A small potted plant should be placed
on the altar.
Arrange the altar, light the candles and incense, and
cast the Circle of Stones.
Recite the Blessing Chant.
Invoke the Goddess and God in whatever words please
you.
Stand before the altar and gaze upon the plant as you
say:

O Great Goddess,
you have freed yourself from the icy
prison of winter.
Now is the greening,
when the fragrance of flowers drifts on
the breeze.
This is the beginning.
Life renews itself by Your magick,
the Earth Goddess.
The God stretches and rises,
eager in His youth,
and bursting with the promise of summer.

Touch the plant. Connect with its energies and,
through it, all nature. Travel inside its leaves and stems
through your visualization - from the center of your
consciousness out through your arm and fingers and into the
plant itself. Explore its inner nature; sense the
miraculous processes of life at work within it.
After a time, still touching the plant, say:

I walk the Earth in friendship,
not in dominance.
Mother Goddess and Father God,
instill within me through this plant a
warmth for all living things.
Teach me to rever the Earth and all its
treasures.
May I never forget
.

Meditate upon the changing of the seasons. Feel the
rousing of energies around you in the Earth.
Works of magick, if necessary, may follow.
Celebrate the Simple Feast.
The circle is released.
