It may take a while till we feel the effects of the Lunar eclipse. But there is a lot still happening.
The SUN conjoined MERCURY March 23 after the eclipse.
This sparks new energy and new ideas. The eclipse was very close to the Zero degree ARIES world point. This is a true turning point. Ultimately new thinking caps and new bright ideas will emerge.
March 24 Mercury @ 5+ DEGREES ARIES trines Mars in Sagittarius @ 3:45 pm PDT/ 6:45 pm EDT
Under a void-of- course Moon. This is an upbeat pursuit of truth, adventure, travelling, optimism and justice. Be daring, be bold, be passionate.
It’s GOOD FRIDAY March 25
The archetypal story of an anointed Higher consciousness being, called Yeshua or Jesus, knows he must die and sacrifice himself for a Higher Purpose, traditionally to the Great Mother, as a martyr to bring higher consciousness to the world. The story of death and rebirth is a terribly ancient one, since humans first became conscious. All life is a continuous unending cycle of birth death and transformation. That is under Saturn’s realm. Easter in the Bible was tied into the Jewish Festival of Passover which is based on a lunar calendar. Usually the two coincide but this year Passover is very late and begins April 22 on a Full Moon.
The real meaning of EASTER or OESTRE is an ancient pagan fertility festival tied to Spring.

ISHTAR, ASTARTE , TARA, OESTRE ancient Goddesses of fertility were honored with symbols of hares, sacred to the Moon, the lunar monthly fertility counter, and rabbits which are very fertile. The symbols of eggs and rabbits were taken on as an overlay on ancient festivals by the Christians. Anyone who studied pagan symbolism can easily see this.
SATURN TURNS RETROGRADE March 25 @ 16+ SAGITTARIUS, 3:00 am PDT/ 6:00 am EDT/ 10:00 a.m. UT
LORD OF TIME STANDSTILL and begins to slowly turn the Karmic wheel backwards.
The GREAT WHEEL OF TIME BUDDHIST interpretation
WHAT’s IT ALL ABOUT?
We are going into DEJA VU time, as the Great wheel of time slows and appears to revolve backwards until August 14th where Saturn will be at 9 degrees 47 minutes of Sagittarius. Lets think back as to where we are headed in that future and where we were. Saturn was last at 9 degrees 47 minutes of Sagittarius on December 20, 2015, think back what you were doing and what you were planning for 2016.
SATURN in SAGITTARIUS is very optimistic, altruistic, honest to a fault, pursues justice, higher philosophical perspectives, education and relating to exotic and foreign things, persons and travel. Saturn rules the Patriarchy, authority, the old boys network, history. In Sagittarius this is politics. Expect a total change in the political run for president now over the next few months. Sagittarius reveals the truth.
JUPITER’s square to SATURN right now amplifies the more optimistic side and expands Saturn’s usually cynical bitter restricting influence on any sign. This is positive and pressuring. As Saturn moves slowly backwards it is like going through a wormhole or time tunnel, we get to go back to the past to change the future.
Saturn Retrograde gives us tine to mature,to work on things. It’s like the necessary time spent to let the dough rise, or setting a bottle of wine away. You cannot rush when something is ready. Use this time wisely to carefully craft your master plan, because all of Saturn’s energy has to do with long term goals, career, commitments, maturity and plans.
Some commitments may break up now or at least must be reexamined. Honesty is truly the best currency now.
We will have to go back to the drawing board where all ideas are conceived and nurture tweak and reset them in stone before they can really begin to be birthed next August.
Saturn in the TAROT is THE DEVIL #15. Ultimately the DEVIL is the material plane. Temptation. EGO. It is ultimately not real. This can be a good time to revisit what your fears are. Are you being governed by your ego? What devils do you project onto others? This is a pretty hot topic now.
SEVEN TO DO’s while SATURN IS RETROGRADE
1. Revisit all your goals for 2016.
This is important to do now as there are energy shifts coming in the fall. It’s OK to change your plans.
2. Scrap what you are not fully committed to
Only put your energy into long-term goals that you are really into for the long run. Its better to focus on one higher goal.Draw out what your peak looks like, why you want it and what you expect from it.
3. Re-commit your vows, in a relationship or in your career .
This is a good time to remake vows, personal and relationship. Second that emotion. Saturn rules career, redraw a career mandala or where you see yourself in 7, 14 years.
4. Ask the advise of a mentor or more mature person’s experience.
This is good to do now. You will be more open to hearing their advice. Also think about your retirement or any long-term distant goals and how to plan for it.
5. Finish up old legal, tax or educational courses.
Saturn is the tax man, get any old unfinished business done. Immigration, wills or other legal matters of this sort should be finished over the next few months. Finish up the courses already.
6. Honor your father and any male person who helped you
Visit your dad, and honor him whether alive or dead for the karmic lessons he gave you. For some this may be good and for others painful. If there are old childhood wounds this is a good time to let that pain out. Inner child work is very important.
Tell someone you respect a male teacher, how they helped impact your life It’s important to tell that person how he helped make a difference in your life. Call him, email or meet in person, or send an old-fashioned letter by mail.
7. Learn to use your time more wisely.
Time is a very precious commodity and it goes faster these days. Manage it wisely.
