Easter – the Fertility Festival of Spring | We Are Vibratory Beings. This is a great article for everyone to read, please do enjoy it and have a most blessed season of new life and fertility.
While I personally do not celebrate Easter on the day as the Christians, I do celebrate the Spring Equinox, Ostara (Celtic), and the Persian New Year I do honour the ways of the this season we are currently in. As Persephone, Proserpina also Kore is celebrated as she returns to the land of the Living by the hands of Mercury delivering her from the hands of Hades to her Mother and Goddess of Earth; Demeter she is the Saviour of the Old Religionists, she is the bringer of life and all things new and she brings us all healing upon her return to the land of the living.
On this day we celebrated in my home with a dish of an omelets of egg, ricotta chesse, green olives, and chicken with potatoes. This is a meal of healing, new life, eating of what comes from under the earth as well as of above the earth. The olives are sacred to Old Religionists as it is the main oil in all of our cooking and magical workings it is also the oil we use to anoint. The Olive Tree is the only tree that does not endure disease of any kind it self heals from the inside out and it is one of the oldest of trees in which we use not only the fruit it bears but the oil it brings. Eggs are of renewal and new life it is the womb of the Mother where all things are created, cheese is of the milk of the mother in which nourishes us all and the chicken the one that hatches the eggs we eat during this time.
While we too partake of meals of fish and all things of yellow and orange in colour as they are the colours of the Sun and healing and the Light that we are once again returning to being dominant over the lands.
Blessed Spring Equinox, Easter, Ishtar, Ostara. This season is of very ancient roots.
