Message from Gaia: Is Ostara the forgotten goddess of spring?
Many goddesses in the world are associated with the spring season. A goddess who seems to receive more attention is Ostara. Its name resembles that of Easter, which is why its fertility items, such as hares and eggs, are part of this religious tradition. There is also a great debate about whether she existed or was a Goddess. The information was lost or forgotten, however Ostara continues to live in history.
Its origins begin in Germany, it is said that it brought rebirth, renewal and fertility to the earth during the month of April. He was responsible for awakening creativity and supporting the growth of a new life. Ostara warmed the winds, helped the trees to bloom and the snow to melt. His presence allowed Mother Earth to be reborn.
In ancient times, we were more connected to the earth and Mother Earth, spring was a miracle . Astonished people watched as buds bloomed on bare branches and green grass germinated from the snow. Spring was a time of hope. It was a sign that the Earth was healthy, flourishing and continued to be reborn after the harsh winter.
Mother Earth is reborn, recreates and renews herself, just as you can do it
No matter what hardness or coldness there was on Earth, she had the strength and wisdom to be reborn. The hare is an emblem of the goddess Ostara. Legend has it that he transformed a wounded bird into a hare that laid colored eggs . One day Ostara got angry with the hare and threw Gaiaa into the skies forming the constellation of Lepus, but ordered that once a year he could return in spring to share his colored eggs. It is believed to be connected to the Moon and that it is a symbol of femininity and fertility. Like the Moon, the nocturnal hare penetrates the darkness daily and emerges again at night. The Moon is reborn night after night, which is why it is believed that the Hare is connected to goddesses of fertility like Ostara.
The egg is also a symbol that is associated with the goddess, represents a new life, the balance of male and female energy. He (and all the seeds) is energy, full of promise and new life. It symbolizes the rebirth of nature, the fertility of the earth and all creation. “The cosmic egg keeps the balance between male and female, light and dark, in the yolk and the egg white.
The golden sphere of the yolk represents the Sun God enveloped by the White Goddess, a perfect balance. It fits with Ostara and the Spring Equinox as everything is in balance, although the energy is growing and expanding. It is thought that people honor Ostara during the month of April by painting eggs and hanging them on the trees, dancing and hunting hares to use them in rituals.
Eggs and hares as symbols of spring, fertility and rebirth are observed in various cultures, some argue that they do not necessarily come from Ostara. We may never know the truth about this Ostara mystery, but there is a time of the year that reminds us of the miracle of planet Earth as the seasons change. Let us not forget that the Goddess brings creativity and renewal to our lives. No matter what happens; how hard or cold things are, nothing lasts forever. As the Earth passes through the seasons, you also through life. If existence has been cold for you, the heat will always come to cover you.
