Easter or Ostara in Germanic and Celtic tradition is the namesake of the festival of Easter.
In various forms, she is also the spring-like fertility goddess associated with dawn. Also associated with Eostre or the Norse Goddess, Freyja. Her focus is on balance and the equilibrium between night and day at the Spring Equinox.
It is a time for new beginnings, for planting seeds that will bear much fruit and for celebration of the rebirth of the soil, the land, and oneself.
Celebrated all over the world and in different cultures including Easter, Feast of the Annunciation (Christian), Lady Day, Celebration of the Goddesses, Venus (Roman) and Aphrodite (Greek), Eostre or Ostara (Old English), Hewsos or Austro (Proto-Indo-European goddess of the Dawn), Easter, Eastre (Old High German).
