Moon of Eostre
happy easter! in ancient times i'd instead be wishing you a happy eostar ritual, as a celebration for ostara the saxon goddess of spring who was the northern form of astarte. i love the way these words associated with femininity create flowing patterns: astarte, oester, esther, easter, ostara, ostera, oestrus, estrus. naturally, it all comes down to fertility!
spring renewal, the sacred moon hare, painted eggs representing new life...traditions i can embrace! another thing i love about easter is the fact that it is a moveable feast, going by the old lunar calendar rather than a fixed date and always occurring on the first sunday after the first full moon of the vernal equinox.
we celebrated with mimosas
and by making crepes (first time i've tried my hand at them and i really don't think you can go wrong)
