The All-Mother of the North has many names, and of these Ostara is the fairest – Ostara, the radiant Goddess of the Dawn, of Springtime. The Circle see her as a symbol of the spiritual re-birth of our Folk, a symbol of hope and resurgent new life.
The Circle of Ostara is a Magical Order associated with (but not officially a part of) the Odinic Rite, together working to further the awakening of our people. The Circle itself has a long history, and has developed its own system of mystico/magical practice. It has dedicated itself to three great tasks:
- The furtherance of Odinism, the organic spiritual expression of Northern Europe, as a living faith, relevant to the problems of existence which face us now, at this time of great change.
- The development of the “divine powers” which lie in each one of us, and which are the gifts of the Gods – not only physical and intellectual powers, but those psychic abilities that have for the past two millennia been distorted, damped down, and denied, by an alien ideology.
- The total rejection of the pseudo-religion of Judeo-Christianity and all the belief systems which have grown out of it. The Circle struggles against it, seeing it as a force of chaos and evil, inimical to all the forms of life which live upon the Earth, and works towards its replacement by a religion which has grown from the Folk-Soul of our Northern Peoples, an organic social system, and an Earth-attuned technology.
For further information about the Circle of Ostara, you may contact the Odinic Rite. We will forward your request.
