Rabbits are an important symbol of Ostara. They are associated with fertility, growth, and abundance. The rabbit was also considered a messenger between the worlds of the living and the dead. In some cultures, the hare or rabbit was seen as a symbol of the moon, which is also associated with the divine feminine.
Ostara is Wiccan and Neopagan holiday which marks the fourth sabbat holiday in the Wheel of the Year. It is a celebration of the Spring Equinox when there is balance between light and dark. It also marks the beginning of springtime and nature’s rebirth. Other symbols from nature that are associated with Ostara include eggs, spring flowers such as crocuses, lilies, and tulips, lemongrass, thyme, red clover, and seeds.
Ostara is a time of new beginnings and growth. The symbols of Ostara represent the cycle of life, the potential for growth and abundance, and the balance between light and dark. By honoring these symbols, we can connect with the energy of the season and celebrate the renewal of life.
