OSTARA: BLOOD SYMBOLS

OSTARA: BLOOD SYMBOLS



Blood Symbols

Source: Ostara by Edain McCoy



Blood is almost universally a symbol of life. The rich red of blood is as much a color of spring as any pastels. In Egypt and Asia, many ancient death and rebirth rituals employed the use of red-colored substances to mimic blood. In Egypt, bodies were entombed with fluids derived from metallic or stone substances that looked like blood.



In any Ostara ritual you may do, you may wish to add some “blood” to the tools, wine or other decorations you use. Using a drop of one’s own blood used to be popular, but with sanitation concerns and fears in group settings of passing diseases, this is seen less and less often.



Making “Blood”



To make a fluid that will symbolize blood in your Ostara rituals, and contain spring and rebirth energies, mix together the following:



• 3 ounces liquid dragon’s blood

• ½ teaspoon powered orris root

• 1 ounce milk



This mix will keep for about two weeks when stored with a tight cap. It should not be ingested. Dragon’s blood will stain, but it is removable from some fabrics by using one of the new enzyme-based fabric cleaners as a washing pretreater. Dragon’s blood is a plant extract that can be obtained at many occult shops.



A bloodlike liquid can also be made from natural iron oxide, also known as red ochre or rust. It has been used to represent blood in rituals dating back 4,5000 years to Egypt, when it was used to adorn bodies of the dead. The drawback to using red ochre is that it stains badly – not a red stain as you might expect, but yellow.
