➕ACCEPTANCE➕ • • Today, we see a secular culture celebrating the spring equinox, whilst religious culture celebrates the resurrection. • Bunnies are a leftover from the pagan festival of Eostre, a great northern goddess whose symbol was a rabbit or hare. Exchange of eggs is an ancient custom, celebrated by many cultures. Hot cross buns are very ancient too. In the Old Testament we see the Israelites baking sweet buns for an idol, and religious leaders trying to put a stop to it. The early church clergy also tried to put a stop to sacred cakes being baked at Easter. In the end, in the face of defiant cake-baking pagan women, they gave up and blessed the cake instead. • However you choose to celebrate and whatever your belief system is, it’s the perfect time to reflect on how similar we are and how entwined our stories have become. • #witch #pagan #her#herb> #greenwitch #picofday #plantwitch #alchemy #spell #aromatherapy #mel#melbourne #familia #easter #alchemist #essentialoils #mythology #beach #witchesofinstagram #spirituality #herbalist #melbourne #herbalism #herb #divinefeminine #plantmedicine #magick #botany #nature #plants #plantmagic #black • Photo Credit: Me 🐨🌿
