Happy Easter

Meet Ishtar (Pronounced Easter), the Babylonian Goddess of love, war, fertility and sexuality.

Easter was originally the celebration for the Goddess Ishtar. Her symbols (just as the bunny and the egg) were and still are symbols for fertility and sex, or did you thought that bunnies and sex, had anything to do with resurrection?

Maybe it’s the “return to life” and spring (but only for the northern hemisphere).

After Emperor Constantine, decided to Christianize the Roman Empire, Ishtar was changed to represent Jesus, as all other deities.

But at it’s roots, Easter (Ishtar) is still to celebrate, life, fertility and sex.
