Tomorrow is Easter and I couldn’t be more excited. As a declared pagan, Easter is one of my favorite holidays because it celebrates fertility, life, and resurrection.
Early Christians made a conscious decision to merge their holidays into Pagan holidays. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ coincide with the death and resurrection (or rebirth as I like to think of it) with a great number of other ancient deities.
The Sumerian / Mesopotamian goddess Inanna, was hung naked on a stake, and was subsequently resurrected and ascended from the underworld. I although I should mention she was only allowed to return by sending her lover to the underworld in her place. The myths of Inanna are my absolute favorite.
One of the oldest resurrection myths is Egyptian Horus. Born on 25 December (sound familiar?), Horus and his damaged eye became symbols of life and rebirth. The eye of Horus is reflected in symbology all around us. It refers to different psychic powers as well as what is entailed with the gift of immortality.
So I guess that’s enough of my ancient history lesson. The Man is watching Sparticus and demanding my attention.
Good night and Happy Easter
