Spring equinox

Day and night same

Ostara, or the spring equinox is on 20 or 21 March.

We celebrate the awakening life, the end of winter and the arrival of spring. Day and night are now the same length.

It is the beginning of the active phase for man and nature.

Ostara, better known to us as Easter, is an old moon festival celebrated at the beginning of spring. We celebrate the feast of the goddess Ostara on March 21st at the spring equinox or at the first full moon after.

The Easter egg and also the Easter bunny are very old symbols of the goddesses of spring, almost everywhere in the world. Even in ancient times the hare was a symbol of fertility, as was the egg, which also stood for rebirth.

At the time of the spring equinox, the fields were once blessed in a ritual, which is still practiced in some places today. During such a ritual, good harvests and protection for the fields were requested.

With Ostara the sun, life, warmth and new growth come back and rebirth in nature.

The word east also comes from Ostara. For in the east the sun rises. What it does from the spring equinox to midsummer, every day a little earlier.

Even the church still today judges its Easter according to the phases of the moon. Easter is on the first Sunday, after the first full moon after the spring equinox, on March 21.

The word Easter is derived from the name of the Germanic goddess of spring, Ostara, or Eostre, the name of the Teutonic goddess of dawn and fertility.
