Ostara celebrates the Spring Equinox, new hopes, new beginnings and new relationships. The festival of Eostre--the lighthearted Anglo-Saxon Goddess--invokes the balance between light days and dark nights. Associated with the Easter Holiday, Ostara is known as a time of fertility and abundance and the coming of spring flowers.
Opalite Ostara Gemstone Egg
As Spring reaches its midpoint, night and day stand in perfect balance, with light on the increase. The young Sun God now celebrates a hierogamy (sacred marriage) with the young Maiden Goddess, who conceives. In nine months, she will again become the Great Mother. It is a time of great fertility, new growth, and newborn animals.
The next full moon (a time of increased births) is called the Ostara and is sacred to Eostre the Saxon Lunar Goddess of fertility (from whom we get the word estrogen, and two symbols related to her were the egg and the rabbit).
