Updated for Ostara 2015!
Greetings to my fellow Odinists…
I hope you enjoy our Odinia International Cosmic Ostara Podcast Mini-Series for the Festival of Ostara!
The altar picture above is taken at Freyjahof in honor of Ostara. It seems such a short time ago that these were recorded for 2013 Ostara celebration… Today, the 19th of March, is the Eve of the Spring Equinox, 2015, and it is just the beginning of our festival…!
I am going to post this now so as to have the videos and links readily available for those who celebrate Ostara on the Equinox only. At Odinia, we believe that our ancestors had more feast days, and the height of our Ostara festival is (and was) later than the equinox. We celebrate all three feast days.(-; This year, the Vernal Equinox coincides with a solar eclipse, and the full moon after the Vernal Equinox corresponds with the Sunday following it, making this an especially astronomically significant occasion.
For more on Ostara reckoning and rituals, please see Cosmic Ostara Part 1, the first video in the series below. Come back and watch each of the 3 video redes and blóts for the corresponding days of Ostara if you like.

Cosmic Ostara I
Recorded: On the 18th of March, 2013
Author and Narrator: Seana Fenner (Odinia)
Best Viewed: On or about the Spring Equinox
This is a general, introductory video which particularly touches upon the theme of having a European tribal world view as opposed to a Semito-centric world view. We discuss the history and practice of Eostre reckoning, and the Pagan solar markers in ancient temples, which were purloined by Christians and turned into churches in an attempt to violate and usurp our native traditions. We also explore some of the surviving Ostara traditions and historical records that refer to them.
In addition to these themes, we recite some readings, prayers, and poetry, suitable for one’s own redes and blóts, and provide some background information upon Persephone and Demeter, as well as old world cosmic archetypes. These are necessary for understanding some of the ancient Nordic beliefs (common to both Norse and the original Nordic Greek culture) having to do with death, marriage, and rebirth, which are alluded to in the following episodes…
Cosmic Ostara II
Recorded: On the 26th of March, 2013
Author and Narrator: Seana Fenner (Odinia)
Best viewed: On or about the full moon after the Vernal Equinox
This podcast continues to explore the symbolism and origin of Ostara, and of European solar deities, and the original Pagan concept of resurrection. To a greater extent than most other broadcasts, for the sake of those still involved with Christianity, we delve into the sometimes overlooked option for European ancestry folk of taking off the chains of Jew worship, and coming back to our own native religion, Odinism, instead.
In connection with this topic, we look into how perception is adversely affected by brainwashing, and recite a couple historical poems and quotes about perception. We attempt to present a more realistic historical world view of the far distant past, seeing it from a sane and rational European perspective based on evidence, rather than a Semito-centric one. We do this, most especially, in response and reference to the mainly Jewish- led and organized anti-European anti-Ostara campaign, which seeks to remove the last vestiges of European culture from the Judeo- Christian religion, and to demonize our entire culture and history.
We are concerned about our fellow European ancestry folk who, due to not having the facts they need to make a good decision, may be manipulated into adhering to this destructive alien agenda. If it were to succeed, those victimized by this program would become completely without ethnic and tribal identity, totally enslaved to a foreign people and religion, not their own.
The ultimate aim of this push is to make all non Jews into race-less goyim (human cattle), or Noahides, which are, in essence, Jewish controlled zombies. By contrast, we hold the idea that European peoples should love and protect our own tribe, and continue to exist as a race, with basic freedoms and rights, such as freedom of speech, thought, and religion. If you know European folk who might not realize the greatness and beauty of our Nordic religion, culture, and people, and how important it is to preserve our Nation of Odin, you may wish to share this video with them.
Cosmic Ostara III
Recorded: On the 30th of March, 2013
Writer and Narrator: Seana Fenner (Odinia)
Best viewed: On the High Feast of Ostara
In this video, we delve into some of the topics already alluded to in more detail, particularly cosmic iconography and astronomical connotations, and we speak of the Heathen origin of what are now commonly and erroneously thought of as Christian symbols. We discuss the thyrsos, sacred fruits, the live-giving food of the Gods, the European origin of the Jewish Eve myth, nudity, the life force, Iðunn, Nerthus, the Earth Goddess, Asklēpiós, Sigurd, the meaning of the chi rho, sacred marriage, immortality, constellations, and dragons.
We close with a song that one might wish to include in one’s blót and which we use in conjunction with our Pomegranate Ritual. The tune itself is an ancient one, but I have given it new Odinist words.

We have a couple new videos like those posted on this page waiting to be made into their final form as soon as we have managed to do this.
