Again it’s time for Easter eggs, hot cross buns and bunny rabbits, but what does all of this have to do with Easter?
Easter (es’ter), Ishta, Ostera, or Eostre’, was the Goddess of fertility long before Christianity, as an ancient pagen celebration, for spring, fertility, re-birth and new life.
For thousands of years before Jesus walked the earth, we celebrated the rites of Spring at this time of year, with the perfect balance of light and darkness, called the Equinox.
The fertility goddess has origins back to ancientBabylon, known as Ostera or Eostere; Queen of the heavens, and then the Roman church replaced the pagan celebration ‘Christianizing’ it.
How did you celebrate this ‘Equinox’?
