Lifestyle column: The Zodiac Celebrates Easter

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Easter is somehow your festival. Firstly, it occurs when the Sun is transiting your sign (at least in the Gregorian calendar). Therefore, you are often filled with the childhood memories which surrounded your own birthday. Who among you did not received a chocolate bunny on this occasion when you were a child? Secondly, the symbolism of this event matches yours; the light is back, and it is the time of the year when Mother Nature wakes up with the solar energy which characterises you. Therefore, all ways to mark this special period are good for you.

Regarding Easter eggs, you prefer the Danish tradition consisting in making them roll. The egg which goes furthest without breaking is the winner. The exercise is more athletic than only looking for them everywhere, which your fighting spirit appreciates.

As usual, you can be trusted when it comes to arranging a proper paschal menu. You begin its preparation well in advance, delighted at the prospect of offering perfect spring dishes: dandelion salad served with diced bacon and boiled eggs, asparagus and spring onions, suckling lamb or seven-hour leg of lamb, after having well marinated before cooking (yes, because you like to take the time to do things correctly). Desserts are not left out: strawberry cream cake, Easter nest, and lastly, chocolate delicacies. Enough!

What remains to do is only to take a nap and to savour with the family the joy characterising this period of the year. Winter, Lent, and constraints fade, giving way to a moment of sharing and warm conviviality.

To tease you, some people may tell you that you are like a chatty Easter bell, one of those pealing out to proclaim the Good News in the wind. Some other people may underline that you resemble an Easter bunny, always on the move and eager to play tricks. Anyway, this is an excellent opportunity to organise a party with a group or with your family. Such a reunion under the sign of connivance, in the light ambiance of spring, makes you feel very good. The other possibility that you sometimes seize is to use this holiday for a gateway to a nearby or a faraway destination.

One may even wonder if the renowned Spring Break – the tradition has it that students must unwind before the last months of the term – has not been invented personally by you and for you. But be careful not to go overboard.

You only need to bite into an Easter Dove, your madeleine of Proust, to have then rushing. Owing to your dreamy tendency, you take the time to carefully prepare the festivities so as everything is perfect for your loved ones. Therefore, you approve of the idea of colouring the eggs with natural ingredients. Cranberry juice, onion peels, or curcuma work wonders.

In general, you fiercely keep secret all the recipes which were passed on with precision by your elders. Likewise, you do not hesitate to ensure continuity by launching the famous egg hunt in the family for the younger ones. You are very happy to help them find eggs placed in the best hiding places.

A light-lover, you appreciate Easter because it marks the return of sunny days. It is also a merry time to be celebrated according to the rule book. Weather permitting, you may invite select people and throw one of the first garden-parties of the year. You always look at what is practiced in the White House or, in a more classic style, on Saint Peter's square in Roma. One understands that what attracts you in this festival is its splendour.

One might as well say that you are very fond of orthodox rites. You are delighted by the midnight mass, the hugging and kissing, the procession with its icons, and lastly, the paschal meal with its profusion of dishes.

 Easter celebration for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

It is with fascination but also with thrills that you get into Easter mood as soon as Good Friday starts. For instance, when you watch the processions during which the most committed believers, in the Philippines, in Guatemala, or in Brazil, do not hesitate to flagellate themselves or to humble themselves in memory of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ at Golgotha. Moreover, Easter festival celebrates the Resurrection, a subject which has always intrigued you. Going in the world of the dead and then coming back to the land of the living is part of your natural interests.

Quite drawn to everything mystical, you see in it the promise of a transformation, or even of a transfiguration putting human beings in contact with the unfathomable. Having said this, you are not reluctant to feast, provided it is intense.

Given your spiritual an optimistic nature, Easter is an ideal event. It honours the return of the light and brings a message about the meaning and the beauty of life. If you are radical and if in addition you appreciate changes of scenery, why wouldn't you consider spending this period in a monastery? The liturgy of such days fully deserves to be observed or even deeply experienced. You can easily find offers of thematic tours to Roma, Turkey, Santiago de Compostela, Poland, or even an expedition in the Sinai desert.

Depending on your tastes and your open-mindedness, you can also design a more jovial and less solitary programme. Some people born with the Sun in Sagittarius – a dual sign, both spiritual and bon-viveur – are determined not to miss the paschal feast.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

 Easter celebration for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

You are one of the few signs of the zodiac able, when necessary, to respect Lent or the rule of fasting preceding Easter. You think that our consumer society indulges in reprehensible excesses which ought to be controlled. This means that you take Easter seriously, and that you believe that it must be deserved. You will certainly not revel in an orgy of chocolates or a week of debauchery.

On the other hand, you have nothing against traditions, whether or not you are a believer. You may often decide to spend some time with your family or even why not, alone. Nothing is more valuable than the simplicity of a solemn moment. At least, for once, try to let off some steam and curb your ambitions.

You can be trusted when it comes to changing or even revolutionising the traditions, and Easter is not an exception to the rule. You look for an original way to enjoy these holidays. Since you are a sheer humanist, this is a good opportunity to try various convivial formulas in terms of food or of any other event. If you bear in mind the principle of a festive meal, you may opt for instance for molecular gastronomy, since you are in the vanguard of everything: scallops with emulsified lamb's lettuce, and rabbit-shaped cake to tone down what is at stake. Being fond of improvisation does not necessarily mean that you are a great chef.

You may also choose to use all the symbolism of Easter to start afresh, for example by undertaking to sort out clothes or bulky objects. Or by turning the traditional egg hunt into a New Age game aiming at solving riddles.

You do not necessarily need a strong organisation and a long notice to prepare Easter. You prefer to let yourself be influenced by the ambiance and the general state of mind. However, you want a nice place with pleasant decoration and good music. Whether it is classic songs or something more modern does not really matter, provided you are filled with emotions and can let go entirely.

Owing to your sensitivity, the harmony of the instant, the principle of sharing and comforting after an ordeal, i.e. some of the messages of the essence of a special moment, move your heart. You take this opportunity to offer little gifts to your friends and your family and to send out beautiful cards.
