. Rabbits are known for their fertility and are associated with the Celtic Goddess of Spring, Eostra and with Ostara (or Easter). Many cultures associate them with the moon, including Native American, Hindi and Chinese. Rabbits have long been a symbol of rebirth, sexuality and springtime. If the rabbit is appearing as a messenger to you right now, perhaps it's because you are trying to conceive (babies or new ideas), and trying to bring those forward into the world.
