The spring equinox is the beginning of spring. It is a time of rebirth, balance and fertility. To celebrate this magic and encourage it favourably, the spring equinox was deified as Ishtar (Easter) the goddess of fertility or queen of heaven.
Easter, goddess of fertility and queen of heaven, is one of the great deities of all times. It is a pastoral recognition of the Spring Equinox, and although a figment of the imagination, her incarnation is glorified in myths and legends. Predating Christ, the worshipping of Easter included cakes, ham eating, virgin sex and human sacrifice with eggs bathe in the blood of the victims.
