Ostara [o-star’-a] is also known as the Vernal or Spring Equinox. This festival is the renewal of the Earth and of our spiritual selves. The Christian celebration of Easter and Ostara are derived from the Goddess Eostre. Legend has it that Eostre was in the company of children and turned a bird into a rabbit and the rabbit laid colored eggs. Relatively, the egg white represents the nature of the Goddess and the yolk represents the Sun God. The shell of the egg is what seals the perfect love for each other.
