An HKW Vernal Equinox Rite

This is a ritual honouring the Earth Mother and the Dawn, designed to be performed by one person, preferably in the morning, preferably facing East. Do not let these suggestions limit you from performing this rite; we do our best.

If performed within a week on either side of the Vernal Equinox, this ritual includes all of the necessary actions for the Hearthkeepers Way, and the ADF Core Order of Ritual (i.e. does qualify as an ADF rite for Dedicant Path work). For 2022, the Vernal Equinox is Sunday, March 20, at 11:33AM EDT. 

All work that is not my own is attributed to its author or source. The remaining work is original text, which may have previously appeared in The Hearth Keepers’ Way [HKW]. If there are any errors in attribution or otherwise, please contact
