Illuminati & occult symbolism of Easter

I’m going to explore the symbolism behind the pagan version of the Easter holiday, celebrated on March 21st-22nd. This is from my Occult & Illuminati holiday traditions post:


The holiday known as Easter is typically a time spent by Christians to reflect on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. However, there is an occult meaning attached to it that needs explored. It revolves around the Goddess Ostara (aka Babylonian goddess Ishtar, aka Eostre, aka the moon goddess, aka Semiramis, aka Egyptian goddess Isis, aka Greek Aphrodite, aka Roman Venus). Ostara/Eostre is the old English spelling and origin for the name of Easter. In Pagan history, human sacrifices occur on the first Sunday after the first new moon, after Ostara/Eostre. It celebrates the return of Semiramis in her reincarnated form of Spring Goddess, Eostre. This is part of the revolving phases of the Triple Goddess of the female deity, mentioned earlier.


Easter Eggs

The Easter egg is a Babylonian legend that claims the goddess Ishtar (aka Semiramis) fell from heaven in an egg. The Easter (Eostre) egg hunt is based from the tradition of looking for Ishtar and finding her. This would allow her to be reborn and bestow blessings on the person. Semiramis/Ishtar is the goddess of fertility because of this rebirth/egg legend.

The rabbit symbol comes about because of the speed of procreation, which just went along with the fertility legend.


The tradition of fasting for Lent is supposedly a tradition that comes from the Babylonian god Tammuz. He died at the age of 40, and every day of Lent is considered one year of Tammuz’ life and the time is spent in fasting to mourn for Tammuz.

Easter Ham

Tammuz was believed to be killed by a wild boar he was hunting, and the consumption of ham on Easter is a symbolic reference to this event.

Let it be known that I’m a Christian, so this particular topic piqued my interest. I reconcile all of these odd occult connections with the fact that it symbolically means something different today, and to my faith then it did when these traditions were instilled. The Christian concept for Lent is a commemoration of the forty days Jesus spent fasting in the desert and eluded the temptations of the Devil (remember the Obama-Devil on History Channel?). However, the material that I’ve been researching claims that the 40 days is truly a tradition from this Tammuz mourning. In fact, Doc Marquis cites Ezekiel 8:14-18 which shows God’s anger of the Tammuz-Lent practice:

Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. And he brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east. Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose. Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.

The passage seems to indicate there was a mourning period for Tammuz, which is accepted as historically accurate. The passage is a vision given to the prophet Ezekiel, and it was meant to show that the people were worshipping the wrong gods (e.g. Tammuz and other sun gods). Of course this is coming from my personal interpretation and I’m pretty far from a priest or theologian, so formulate your own theory on that one.

Easter Candy and Hot Cross Buns

As mentioned in the other holidays, the Tower of Babel had a temple to Moloch at the top. People would bring candies, hot cross buns, and flowers up to Moloch to honor him. The tradition of eating hot cross buns on Good Friday is celebrated in various countries around the world, and the theorists reference the following Bible passage from Jeremiah 7:17-21:

Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. Do they provoke me to anger? saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces? Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Put your burnt offerings unto your sacrifices, and eat flesh. For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

Again, we see the Bible making references to the people worshipping these occult gods and goddesses. The Bible has multiple accounts of children going through the fires, and this was referring to the flames of Moloch at valley of Gehenna (or the valley of Hinnom sometimes) that sacrifices were burned in. Here’s Jeremiah 7:31:

They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire—something I did not command, nor did it enter my mind.

If children could make it through the fire they were allowed to live without further persecution. Parents would have to stand still and emotionless as their child burned alive to the drum beats of the pagan priest in order for Moloch to accept the ‘gift.’


The goddess Eostre’s statue has the crescent moon on top of her head, which is another feature that suggests she is a reincarnation of Semiramis. The fertility goddesses are all considered to be similar; Diana, Eostre, Semiramis, Estata, etc.

  1. Hey great website, been informing people I know about this stuff which I’ve been researching too. Makes for some interesting conversations. Something else to note is that Ostara is also known as the ‘eastern star’. The Eastern Star is also a prominent masonic group which unlike most accepts women (feminine link). It’s symbol is a pentagram btw. From here there appears to be some links with the planet Venus which is the ‘morning star’ and rises in the east though this is a bit more blurry but would make a link with the story of Ishtar/Innana descent to the underworld that uses the planets movements as a metaphor.

    On a completely seperate issue check out this footage from a piece on the BBC’s Match Of The Day. This is a massively watched sports programme in the UK showing highlights of the weekend football:

    • This was a great read and very informative! Being a christian my eyes have become well opened to the illumanati who they are and what they stand for.

      I’ve never understood the meaning of easter egg hunts? and especially the “ham” we consume on Easter.

      Great Job! Your site rocks with the truth!

    • Glad you like it. Be sure to research it further; lord knows there are bound to be some aspects that aren’t 100% accurate.

    • If you don’t believe that Jesus Christ is The Son of God and that he was risen from the deads you are a loss
      Google Holy Light or Fire
      It’s a miracle that takes place every Easter

      • Orthodox tradition holds that the Holy Fire happens annually on the day preceding Orthodox Pascha (Orthodox Easter), in which a blue light emanates within Jesus Christ’s tomb (usually rising from the marble slab covering the stone bed believed to be that upon which Jesus’ body was placed for burial) now in the Holy Sepulchre, which eventually forms a column containing a form of fire, from which candles are lit, which are then used to light the candles of the clergy and pilgrims in attendance. The fire is also said to spontaneously light other lamps and candles around the church.[1][2] Pilgrims and clergy claim that the Holy Fire does not burn them.[3][4]

    • The “Christianized” version of the Eastern celebration seems to trivialize the resurrection, in that it encourages people to set aside one weekend of the year to “commemorate” this most important event. The truth is that during this current dispensation of grace it is an irrevocable part of the salvation message. We must believe that Jesus died, was buried, and was resurrected the 3rd day.

  2. Great expose about the truth about Easter. How one can reconcile continuing to worship Jesus Christ with pagan rituals is beyond me as Christ (the Word) told us not to:

    Deut 12:29-32
    29 The Lord your God will cut off before you the nations you are about to invade and dispossess. But when you have driven them out and settled in their land, 30 and after they have been destroyed before you, be careful not to be ensnared by inquiring about their gods, saying, “How do these nations serve their gods? We will do the same.” 31 You must not worship the Lord your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the Lord hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods.

    32 See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it.

    Jesus Christ actually instituted a ceremony called the Passover, which is to commemorate His death. Passover is the truth and brings true believers in communion with Him, while Easter is the lie which is perpetuated by Satan the devil which separates people from having a personal relationship with God. God is Spirit, and must be worshipped in spirit and TRUTH!

  3. Thank you for this article.. Guys, in Islam we beleive in one God whom we cant perceive with our sences and He sent us prophets during the times to guide people to right path, which is defying paganism and beleive in one God; Allah. We beleive in Jesus Christ and that he is a human prophet, and we beleive in virgin Mary and her pregnancy with Jesus is a miracle of God.. We beleive that he wasnt crucified and he will return at the end of times and will defeat the anti-Christ.. And by the way, our prophet Muhammed, peace be upon him, has warned us that antichrist when he comes he first will claim that he is a prophet and then he will claim that he is God himself.. And he warned us that he his right eye is blind.. And we musnt beleive in what he will show us of his powers because he will be deceiving people with them.. And the real God, Allah, is not seen in our lives… Jesus when he comes back to defeat the antichrist, will gather the people under the word of one and only God, Allah..

  4. Thank you so much for the imformation of truth which confirms that worshipping of our God should be done in simplicity according to what The Holy Bible commands us to do. Most Christians today have borrowed so much of pagan idol worshipping to such an extent truth is been stifled. I will not keep quite through The Almighty Christ Jesus will dessminate this wonderful Tidings.

  5. What both amazes and stuns me is how anyone could even begin to think that the Creator would “be OK” with mixing pagan holidays with sacred rituals….
