The Balanced Egg
The Vernal Equinox is a pivotal time of the year in which the day is of equal light and darkness (Equinox) and spring (Vernal) begins. It is a time of regeneration and hope. It is said that at the precise moment of the vernal equinox the earth is in such perfect balance that an egg set on end will stand upright.
In Saxon myth, the Goddess Oestre is said to have anxiously awaited the Golden egg of the Sun to be laid by her beloved Moon- hare. (Early ancestor of the Easter Bunny) The egg of the Sun was the gift of life.
In Egypt the egg represents creation, in China people made eggs to give as symbols of affection, the Ukrainian pysanky egg was given for fertility and protection and the Maioris buried their love ones with an egg in their hand for resurrection. In all cultures and religions the egg has been revered.
This representation of the egg is then a wish for and symbol of perfect balance, rebirth, hope, life and love.
Some can be worn, but all are to be set on end for everyone to enjoy.
