Early Easter This Year - It is about the Moon
It is known that Easter falls on the Sunday after the first full Moon of the Spring Equinox. This year, Spring arrived on March 20th or March 19 @ 10:49 PM PDT, the full Moon followed on March 21st, thus--we have Easter on March 23rd. Mars which begun it's second journey into Cancer (ruled by the Moon) on March 4th triggering the economy with conjunction to the Federal Reserve's Pluto and opposing the US Chart's Venus and Jupiter is one of the player in this time of Major Firsts.
It should also be noted that in light of the inundations in the nation's heartland: the last time Easter occurred as early as March 23rd was 1913, an Easter remembered in Ohio for the Great Dayton Flood. This flood water from the Great Miami River, causing the greatest natural disaster in Ohio's history. At the time of the Dayton Flood Sun-Moon were TSQ Jupiter in Capricorn with Neptune in Cancer (moon ruled) closely opposing Vesta in Capricorn.
Cardinal Cross of Action and Reaction
Watching the afterglow from the tonight's unreal moon in Libra exactly opposing Jupiter in earthy Capricorn
reality seems to be quite flexible like the string theory which presupposes extra dimensions. Like the string theory yesterday's full moon deals with basic energies of action-reaction or building blocks which could even be described as one-dimensional extended objects called strings, rather than the zero-dimensional point particles that form the basis for the standard model of particle physics. In a sense this Aries-Libra-Cancer-Capricorn axis is now offering tangible proof of other dimensions of existence.
Yesterday the news hit of powerful stellar explosion that has shattered the record for the most distant object visible to the naked eye. In fact on March 19th A Gamma ray burst of incredible force at 2:12 a.m. EDT and pinpointed the coordinates in the constellation Bootes. According to Neil Gehrels of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. "This blows away every gamma ray burst we've seen so far." "No other known object or type of explosion could be seen by the naked eye at such an immense distance," says Swift science team member Stephen Holland of Goddard. "If someone just happened to be looking at the right place at the right time, they saw the most distant object ever seen by human eyes without optical aid." Aries rules the head and yes eyes!
Bootes is connected to the star Arcturus The "Herdsman", or "driver of oxen" and he Arabic name; Al Haris al Sama, the "Keeper of Heaven," came from the star's early visibility in the twilight. Bootes is the cultivator or Ploughman who drives the Bears, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor around the Pole Star, Polaris. On the Euphrates it was the Shepherd of the Heavenly Flock, or the Shepherd of the Life of Heaven - sort of relates to Easter.
More importantly Gamma ray bursts (GRB) are akin to the newly ingressed Aries Sun SQ Mars shined briefly with the intensity of one million trillion suns.
Floods, Cancer Mars and Pisces Stellium
Even though I am weighing on this lunation a little late being caught up in the Cardinal Cross with my own Capricorn rising, everyone is agreeing that this is one freaking historic full moon. Floods in the US Midsection triggered by the Mars-Cancer opposition to Pluto that just keeps on giving we know of at least 16 deaths and hundreds of residents who were forced to flee their homes in the flooding. The storm dumped up to 30 centimeters of rain over a two-day period that ended Wednesday. With Mars applying to trines with Mercury, Venus, vesta and Uranus we are in the midst of massive inundations in other parts of the world.
China punished for repressive action against Tibet by 7.2 Earthquake which hit Xinjiang, China
This lunation also has brought destruction from the earth elements too. Multiple strong quakes all over 5+ Magnitude in the XINJIANG-XIZANG BORDER REGION all occuring soon after the big 7.2 Event. So far in this sparsely populated region of western China we have only seen the collapsing some houses, but no reports of injuries.
Cardinal TSQ keeps us on edge waiting for the Big One!
Yet here on the West Coast increased quake activity from the ANDREANOF ISLANDS in Alaska to the WEST CHILE RISE and of course closer to home Dublin, California or near the Salton Sea just WSW of Obsidian Butte, CA where literally hundreds of small tremors have registerd.
Despite all these elemental changes the March 21st Full Moon marking perhaps really hopeful movement for humanity to embrace his true Galactic presence. I love the old sabian message for 2 Libra = The light of the sixth race transmuted into the seventh. Here we see that Dr. Jones was talking about an idealized vision which is based on truth - current sixth race of global mankind on the threshold of a new vision a real leap in conciousness for all of us. The newer Sabian seems to refer to the negative side of this image with references to avoiding dangerous even erotic undercurrents: "Odysseus and his mean are sailing through a channel to an unkown sea when they come upon a whirlpool and, behind it (HERE IT COMES) a beautiful siren playing harp. Shades of Elliot Spitzer and the American voter so
disenchanted with the last miserable years of Bush-Cheney and Iraq war that he would either fall sway to the seduction of Obama or defer to the fright generated by senile, pre-Alzheimer's McPain who even talks to himself. Oh Libra sign of the indecisive mind yet one to balance all must decide on a better way then the current financial dramas and crisis with a Major TSQ on the Fed Reserve Sun-Pluto oppositon. Just a few days ago almost a week when the Federal Reserve's rescue of Bear Stearns averted a seizure of the $516 trillion derivatives system.
War What is it Good For? Nothing
After 5 years of horrors - a million Iraqi dead, an ancient culture destroyed and a violent maelestrom in the middle east that keeps on blowing up - we now have 4,000 Americans officially dead. Even the heavily fortified Green Zone was hit by a sustained barrage of rocket or mortar fire early this morning, one day after a March 21st roadside bomb killed three American soldiers north of the capital, pushing the US death toll in the five-year conflict to nearly 4,000.

Exact transit from Uranus to Tibet Uprising Sun in 1959.
With up to to 80 killed in crackdown in Tibet by Sunday March 16th and the world beginning to take note as the issue of Tibetan Independence gains world wide prominence, many ask why now? Even in New York at the Chinese consulate, Tibetan activists protest Beijing's deadly crackdown on demonstrators in their Himalayan homeland. As we look back to March 10th when this started when the morning of 3-10-2008 (used 7:00 AM to correspond to Natal Uprising Chart) when just a few hundred monks begin a protest on the 49th anniversary of the Tibetan uprising against Beijing rule, which led to the exile of the Dalai Lama, now living in India.
Notice inner wheel of the chart below with Sun @ 18 Pisces 42' when a major uprising occured against Chinese occupation almost 9 years after the first invasion of this free Buddhist country on Oct. 7, 1950. The Sabian Symbol for 19 degrees Pisces: "A master instructing his pupil" or a more modern revolutionary version: "a beautiful and charismatic woman exhorts a crowd of citizens to settle their differences and rebuild a tumbledown cathedral." If ever there was a cause that reflected a need to
set in order a social or spiritual condition which deeply affects all humanity it is to FREE TIBET.
Aries Moon on March 10, 2008 triggred the natal Moon-Nodes-Venus from the first house of action that day. Most notably was that Mars was on the IC (roots of the original uprising) opposing Pluto on the MidHeaven. On this day when 300 monks from Drepung Monastery were seeking the release of fellow Drepung monks, who apparently were detained as they tried to celebrate the Dalai Lama's receipt of the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal in October.
Deep Wounds Are Opened as Chiron is Overwhelmed by Need for Freedom.
When we look at the chart above and focus on the 11th house which represents community groups and the national purpose or purpose of these group as well as its hopes and dreams and friendships. We see can almost feel the shock waves as Uranian ruled Aquarian triumverate: Chiron, Neptune, Mercury, Venus and North Node of destiny all passing over natal Chiron - a wound that has cut deeply into the religious community @ 24 Aquarius. Sabian: "a chrysalis that opens after a probe or a butterfly with a right wing more perfectly formed." So finally with Pluto ingress into Capricorn and grassroots movements have even more power, the magnificent right brained butterfly that is Tibet is flying forth.
The Dalai Lama (born July 6, 1935) with Cancer rising and Pisces MidHeaven (now transited Uranus just as Jupiter moves over his 7th house of open enemies) who is the center of much of this controversy said Sunday that he would not instruct his followers inside Tibet to surrender before Chinese authorities. Dalai Lama has described feeling “helpless” in preventing what he feared could be an imminent blood bath.
By March 18th the Tibetan government in exile has said at least 80 people were killed by Lhasa police, but local authorities (including Xinhua) who have been repressing all You Tube videos are only 13 people died. The Dali Lama himself said he will resign as leader of Tibet if violence there worsens. He also denied Chinese government claims that he was orchestrating the pro-freedom protests. Currently the
continued Mars-Pluto opposition (separating) is crossing Dali Lama's Ascendant-Descendant with a TSQ to Pallas in pugnacious Aries (protesters and response from Chinese Govt. push ahead) plus with his natal Mid Heaven @ 21 PIsces the Uranus-Vesta transit in PIsces is moving close to that point. The world is now in the heart of true Non-violent Protest as Governments will began to topple from leaders downward.

Neptune and Higher Oil Prices
Just three short days ago the Piscean lunation reflected a picture mutual reception between the cosmic trickster Uranus and oceanic Neptune. Over the Easter seaboard Moon-Sun-Uranus rocked and rolled together at 18 Pisces semi-sextile Chiron and Mercury in revolutionary
Aquarius. Gas prices jumped 25 cents or more in a couple of days as Crude oil traded near $108 a barrel in New York. Prices should go higher with Jupiter applying to an exact sextile to Jupiter by March 28th: Prices are heading to $120 ``in the short term,'' said Matthew Simmons, chairman of Simmons & Co., a Houston investment bank.
Scandals Take Center Stage over Real Issues
By the time that the moon had entered Taurus (9:14 AM EDT), we began to see more then just oil grabbing the headlines. The most important story of the day broke: telling about an AP investigation which found a vast array of pharmaceuticals in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans in 24 major metropolitan areas. Here we see how the Uranus Pisces connection to Sun along with yesterday's Mercury-Neptune meeting is a powerful indicator of major reform in the Pharmaceutical Industry which now directly threatens our lives. Of course to just say no to dangerous prescription drugs is just strikes of anti-capitalism or even UnAmerican sentiment thus the media found the biggest scandal available. Elliot Spitzer (born June 10, 1959), now Governor of New York state, paying for sex and apologizing at a news conference in Manahattan around Noon. So here we have our nation's water supply threatened not by some IslamoFascist terrorist but by Pig Pharma and the proponents in true Neptunian fashion will keep the debate over whether he will or should resign!
Elliot's Chironic Mess as Pluto Took No Prisoners
In the BiWheel Chart below there was so much stacked against Elliot since the New Moon Uranian Connection rocked his gigantic ego.
Destiny represented by N Node was almost exactly meeting Elliot's deep wounded healer Chiron as was Venus for sex revelations. Transiting Pluto in Capricorn (representing bottom up change) crossed both his natal Astrea (asteroid of justice) and serious Saturn. Yet it was that exalted Taurus Moon that pushed hero's fall from grace opposing his own inner scandal represented by his natal Neptune @ 4 Scorpio for an emotional TSQ to Venus-Mars-Moon (time unknown) Uranus all in Leo (celebrity fall).
Update from March 12th as Taurus Moon SQUARES his Chiron @ 27 Aquarius and TSQ the Nodes of Destiny: Spitzer Resigns, Citing Personal Failings

Mars-Pluto Opposition rips layers of 3D resistance.
Before we launch into any analysis of this lunation which followed two major eclipses: one a partial solar @ 18 Aquarius back on Feb. 6-7th bringing the need for
total freedom to the planet's heart and soul...the other back on Feb. 20th @ 2 Pisces-Virgo opening up the Earth itself to multiple earthquakes and a major ascension process along with repudiation of past ages of war. Look what has happened via USGS for the last 7 days! (Worldwide phenomena around oceans:PHILIPPINE ISLANDS REGION, KURIL ISLANDS, KEPULAUAN MENTAWAI REGION, INDONESIA and even the OWEN FRACTURE ZONE REGION near Saudi Arabia and Yeman...
Tension has been building and releasing on lots of levels as Mars-Pluto have been moving closer to an exact opposition on the Cardinal Axis known as quake catalysts. It will not just be Mars-Pluto in hard aspect on the cross of matter but Sun-Uranus conjunction, Venus-Neptune together and parallel which are huge indicators of massive quakes.
Now for the far side and I do mean far side of the Moon ruler of Mars ingress. Notice NASA's focus on Moon exploration - "The south pole of the Moon," says Cooke, is going to be "a beautiful place to explore." This current Lunation also deals with the opening of stargates for humanity to finally understand the multidimensional nature of our plane of existence.
Below is a presentation by William Henry taking again of how the ancient doctrines and especially the parable of Christ's "The Eye of the Needle" relates stargates.
Illusion and Politics
Pisces has always been associated with mystery, deception, ambiguous meanings shrouded in illusion yet we are seeing definite power plays made out in the open before the March 7th lunation. Politics is the new star search with Jupiter in sign of Recognition and ambition Capricorn expanding popularity of the selection process yet minimizing the election right. With Neptune modern ruler of this Lunation and Venus (considered the lower octave)in a tight SQ from 22 Aquarius to Ceres in Taurus (nurturing thru physical security) we are about to be disappointed. Getting back to this highly sensitive yet shocking new moon @ 17 Pises 30 (Sabian: "Inside a huge tent, a populist politician stirs up the crowd with damning facts about government corruption." with this symbol we have the average people asking for honest self representation while the slick, oratory is really about packaging. I mean how could a black man not represent something new? Yeah like a New World Order..
Notice his seal "Z PLURIBUS UNUM"! We know that "E Pluribus Unum" is Latin for "Out of Many, One" Here we have the implication of taking NWO from the 2-D world to 3 D - THE NEW WORLD ORDER SEAL..
Friday's nova Pisces event has both lights moving close to a conjunction with Uranus @ 18 Pisces with the Sabian for 19 degrees of the dual mutable fish - "A master instructing his pupil." striking a chord with the secret societies and illuminati conspiracies. Also a modern sabian for 19 Pisces has even more revelatory meaning:
"A beautiful and charismatic woman exhors a crowd of citizens to settle their differences and rebuild a tumbledown cathedral. " Here is the other side of getitng all to find their vision and began to materialize that truth vs. persuasiveness that can turn followers into minions of slaves.
Economic Realities Rock with Mars-Pluto at Angles
Let's back up a bit just 8 hours before this lunation set for Washington DC, we have the culmination of cardinal opposition between violent Mars @ 1 Cancer and manipulative Pluto (ready to destroy in order to transform) @ 1 Capricorn setting up the axis of Matter-Spirit and crossing the Federal Reserve Sun-Pluto opposiiotn (Dec. 23, 1913). This new moon is not just going to involve politics but the heart and soul of this January's Pluto ingress into Capricorn: Total Economic Transformation spiraling down from the housing crisis, stagflation, rate cuts and bankrupt by war! The chart above has Mars near the Ascendant and Pluto near the Descendant now separating into the Pisces-Virgo axis of Victim-Service.
