The Vernal Equinox - Ostara
Ostara, or Eostra, is also the name of an Anglo-Saxon goddess who represents dawn. Dubbed the Spring Maiden and Horned God, she oversees the budding of the plants, fertility of the Earth, and festive enjoyment of nature through hunting and dancing. Symbols of new life play an important part in the Ostara tradition. Much like at Easter, these symbols include eggs, rabbits, flowers and seeds.
