Ostaras Rabbit - Symbol of the Gods
© Michael Schütz

The rabbit is the animal of Ostara. It stands for fertility as it has a lot of offspring. In the time of Ostara they kindle their young. The hiding of Ostara’s eggs makes them the heralds of new awakening. They stand for fresh beginnings. We are invited to emulate the rabbit in its behaviour to jump light-heartedly into the new. Sometimes we are too settled in and not open to changes and lack the flexibility to embrace new things. The scampering rabbit can be our incentive. Do as the rabbit does!
Frey and Freya have a connection to the rabbit because of its fertility.
