Happy Easter! The Goddess Ostara, or Eostre, a Germanic Goddess is the Anglo-Saxon Goddess of Spring, the East, Resurrection, and Rebirth, is also the Maiden aspect of the Three-fold Goddess. She gave her name to the Christian festival of Easter, whose timing is still dictated by the Moon. Bunnies are a symbol of Eostre, a great northern goddess whose symbol was a rabbit or hare!
The season of Oestre is upon the inner child; upon joy, creativity and artistic expression. This is a time to begin new projects, new relationships and explore new territory. This is a time of balance of masculine and feminine within.
