Easter (and the Pope's birthday)

Christianity has strong connections to the sign of Pisces (sacrifices and miracles, the convent etc.). Pope Benedict has Jupiter Pisces on the Ascendant. He is the personification of Christianity and the chart perfectly reflects this. See his chart in an earlier post...

Tomorrow the Pope will be news again. And on the 16th he will be celebrating his birthday. The Sun will be conjunct his natal Sun sooner, on the 14th. Pluto - symbol of transformation, danger and challenge - is angular in the solar return chart, on the Ascendant. Perhaps it will be a challenging year.
Transit Uranus is inconjunct Neptune (ruler 1) tomorrow. I hope that this will not cause incidents that ruin the celebration for those who went to Rome.

Easter is the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The eggs symbolise new life in the convictions of all those who celebrate the come back of the sunlight in summer. (On the souther side of earth winter begins, however.) For astrologers the moment that the Sun is conjunct Aries Point (Zero Aries) symbolises the start of a new cycle. And that is around 21st March.
Astrology is neutral. There is no connection with any religion and (if they may) astrologers can be member of any religious group. The Sun comes back to the same point on earth every year. In astrology the Sun is the symbol of life. It is worth celebrating life, on whatever occasion. So: Happy Easter!
