Easter, today, is a very significant date within Christianity.
It celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, the Son of God, on the third day after his crucifixion and gives to those who believe the gift of eternal life in heaven.
The Bible, a Piscean Age reference book for life and living, doesn’t mention Easter but it does provide explanations for the Easter celebration. According to the New Testament, Easter is three days after the death of Jesus on the cross.
But people believe what they don’t know from personal experience. Most take their beliefs for granted and Easter is a worldwide tradition involving many customs that people believe to be Christian.
Easter embraces Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, Lent, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. And, as it’s celebrated today, it’s a Piscean Age tradition but its origins date back into the ancient past.
So, what is the real origin and meaning of Easter and how did rabbits, eggs and hot cross buns become associated with the Easter celebration?
Astrology-fact-check: The story of Easter
At Easter the Sun, planet of those in authority who have been chosen or elected to direct the enterprises of a community or nation, is in the sign Aries, where it exerts its finest powers.
Aries is the sign of leadership, and the Sun exalted in Aries represents leadership of the most effective kind.
And each year Easter takes place when the Moon, symbol of all the people, moves into Libra, the sign of partnership.
Not only are the people partners in the great enterprise of life, but the full Moon indicates they are partners with their leaders, represented by the Sun directly across the zodiac in Aries and shedding its rays not on part, but all the Earth-turned surface of the Moon.
Easter is the Sunday following this full Moon and astrologically it indicates that the people of the globe, the leaders and the workers, and those gifted in various ways, have united in a common cause to make this world a better place in which to live.
Easter is the time when the benevolent forces of spring gather to themselves sufficient power to take the offensive against the cruel forces of winter, which strive to subjugate the whole earth to icy bondage.
It is the time when the Sun and Moon cooperate to liberate the fertile vitality of seeds which under the grip of cold Saturn have lain numb within the soil for so long.
It is the time when the Great Teacher of the Piscean Age was released from the tomb where the enemies of kindness and tolerance had placed him that there might be no one left daring enough to question their teachings or dispute their dictatorial authority.
And it is the time, at this transition into the Aquarian Age, when those possessing the enlightened knowledge of astrology and extrasensory perception should unite in a mighty effort to roll away the stone of atheistic materialism which is in the process of turning off the spiritual lights and imprisoning all the people of the world in darkness and ignorance.
