The myth of the Moon Gazing Hare reflects ancient beliefs. Pagans believed that seeing a moon gazing hare would bring growth, re-birth, abundance, new-beginnings and good fortune. The hare is known to be sacred to the goddess Eostre and eventually became known as the Easter bunny.
Žemyna is the goddess of Earth in Lithuanian mythology. She personifies fertility. The word žemė in Lithuanian means “earth”. In this image, the Goddess is a life giver and protector; she vivifies soil after drought with pure water extending from her veins. Ordinarily, she is thought of a mother or pregnant female carrying out Lithuanian woman’s features.
