Unveiling the Occult History of Easter: A Journey Through Wiccan, Pagan, Christian, and Sumerian Traditions
Easter is one of the most celebrated holidays around the world, but its origins and history are shrouded in mystery and occult traditions that go far beyond the Christian faith. In this blog post, we will explore the fascinating and often overlooked history of Easter, examining the ancient Sumerian, pagan, Wiccan, and Christian meanings and rituals that have influenced the holiday over time.
The Origins of Easter
Easter’s roots can be traced back to the Sumerian goddess Inanna, who symbolized fertility, love, and the planet Venus. Inanna’s descent into the underworld and her subsequent resurrection formed the basis of the Sumerian New Year festival, which was celebrated in the spring. Similarly, the pagan festival of Ostara, also celebrated in the spring, honored the equinox and the renewal of nature, and was linked to the goddess Eostre.
Christianity and Easter
The Christian celebration of Easter began in the 2nd century and was initially associated with the Jewish holiday of Passover. The date of Easter was fixed as the Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox, usually falling between March 22 and April 25. Over time, Easter became associated with the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who was crucified and buried on Good Friday. Today, Easter is the most important Christian holiday, celebrated by billions of people worldwide.
Wiccan and Pagan Celebrations
In Wiccan and pagan traditions, Easter is known as Ostara or Eostre, a time to honor the equinox and the return of spring. Many Wiccans celebrate the holiday with rituals and spells to promote renewal, rebirth, and balance in their lives. Pagans also celebrate Easter with symbols of fertility and rebirth, such as eggs and rabbits.
In conclusion, the history of Easter is a rich tapestry of diverse cultural and spiritual traditions that have shaped the holiday over the centuries. From the Sumerian goddess Inanna to the Christian resurrection of Jesus Christ, Easter has evolved into a global celebration of renewal, rebirth, and hope. Whether you celebrate Easter as a Christian, Wiccan, pagan, or simply enjoy the festivities, the holiday’s fascinating history invites us all to explore its rich and mysterious origins.
