One of the events associated with Ostara is the Great Rite. With every thing else blossoming and preparing for sex, the same urges are also rising within ourselves. As soon as they is a tiny hint of sun, we start to expose our skin to the tendrils of sunlight, and the cool waters and we are itching for company after the isolation of winter. We are rejoicing at the longer hours of daylight, the ease at which we raise in the morning during the sunlight. We go about the dull routine of the day with more excitement in the sunlight and we even change our wardrobe to lighter and looser material. However, this is nothing compared to the ancestors who can celebrate surviving the winter. There is no better celebration than sex and this is why Ostara and sex seem to go hand in hand.
