A Cosmic Wake Up Call: The True Date of Easter 2019
We know that Easter is determined by a cosmic alignment of Sun, Moon & Earth. 1st the Sun must come into its place of balance at the Vernal Equinox. Then the Sun waits for the Moon to come into Fullness, so that the rays of the Springtime Sun can be reflected to us on Earth. The Moveable Feast of Easter then arrives on the 1st Sun-day after, which brings earthly humanity into connection with the Sun-forces.
This year, the Spring Equinox is at 4:58 pm CDT on March 20th. The Full Moon also comes on March 20th, about 4 hours later, at 8:43 pm. By these calculations, the 1st Sunday after is, March 24th. So this, my friends, is the true date of Easter Sunday for 2019.
But if you look on the internet or on the ‘Official’ Church Calendar, it says Easter is April 21st 2019!
Dear Friends, This is extremely important! We must vigorously apply what we know to be true & not take anything at face value. It is so easy to be asleep & miss these powerful opportunities to be in cosmic alignment.
Every year, humanity has a responsibility to Consciously Resurrect this ‘Turning Point of Time’ in our Thinking, Feeling & Willing, to participate in Christ’s deed which planted the seed of our redemption from the fall, which we must cultivate!
If we sleep thru this opportunity, the death forces will strengthen.
Dr. Lilli Kolisko established important scientific documentation on this very subject, following initial indications given by Rudolf Steiner.
In 1943, Easter fell shortly after the equinox, on March28th. The Church authorities in England had ruled that the Easter Full Moon should be considered to be a month later & that the festival should be celebrated on April 25th 1943, Even though the Royal Astronomer maintained that the earlier date was correct.
Lili Kolisko discovered through her experiments the true cosmic reality. Every day she repeated her experiments. She showed that one can obtain a picture of life-force activity with solutions of minerals representing key planetary forces –such as Silver Nitrate, Iron Sulphate or Gold Chloride, displaying colors & forms which reveal the invisible etheric forces working on earth or in plants in specific ways & at specific times. On Sunday March 28th 1943, an enhanced form & color appeared. On the Church authorities’ preferred date of April 25th there was no difference from the pattern of any other day.
A similar strengthening of the etheric forces was revealed on the true Whitsun-tide date, six weeks after the real March 28th 1943 Easter.

Below is a powerful quote from Rudolf Steiner reminding us not to be blinded by the materialism that wants to keep us bound to the earth:
“The Easter Festival, is intended to remind us of an event whose significance lies, not merely within the course of earth-evolution, but within the whole world-order into which humanity has been placed. Therefore the time of the Easter festival must not be determined by ordinary earthly conditions; it is a time that can be ascertained only when the human being turns their thoughts to the worlds beyond the earth. And there is deeper meaning still in this plan of a movable time for the Easter festival. It indicates how through the Christ Impulse humanity is to be set free from the forces of earth-evolution pure and simple. For through knowledge of that which is beyond the earth, humanity is to become free of the evolution of the earth, and this truth is indicated in the manner of dating the Easter festival. It contains a call to the human being to lift himself up to the worlds beyond the earth; it contains a promise to humanity that in the course of world-history it shall be possible for him, through the working of the Christ Impulse, to become free of earthly conditions.
The time has come when humanity must realise with full and clear consciousness that supersensible knowledge has now to arise out of the grave of the materialistic outlook. For together with supersensible knowledge will arise the knowledge of Christ Jesus. In point of fact, man has no other symbol that fits the Easter festival than this — that mankind has brought upon itself the doom of being crucified upon the cross of its own materialism. But man must do something himself before there arises from the grave of human materialism all that can come from supersensible knowledge.
The very striving after supersensible knowledge is itself an Easter deed, it is something which gives man the right once more to keep Easter. Look up to the full moon and feel how the full moon is connected with man in its phenomena, and how the reflection of the sun is connected with the moon, and then meditate on the need today to go in search of a true self-knowledge which can show forth man as a reflection of the supersensible. If man knows himself to be a reflection of the supersensible, if he recognises how he is formed and constituted out of the supersensible, then he will also find the way to come to the supersensible.
The truth is, we are to-day living in a time when Christ Jesus is being crucified in a very special sense. He is being put to death in the field of knowledge. And until men come to see how the present way of knowledge, clinging as it does to the senses and to them alone, is nothing but a grave of knowledge out of which a resurrection must take place — until they see this, they will not be able to lift themselves up to experiences in thought and feeling that partake of a true Easter character.”
Dear friends, with these truths in mind, I am changing our Festival programing. We will begin our Holy Week Study, exploring Kaspar Hauser, on the True Palm Sunday March 17th 2019, 2 pm – 4pm,
We continue Holy Monday thru Holy Saturday, March 18-23, from 7 pm – 9 pm,
& on the True Easter Sunday March 24th 2019, from 2 pm – 4 pm, our Festival will revolve around The ‘Golden Legend’ & The ‘Rose Cross Meditation’.
For our study we will take up: ‘Kaspar Hauser: The Struggle for the Spirit’ by Anthroposophical researcher Peter Tradowsky. I have ordered copies to be given out on a 1st come basis at cost: $23
We are also re-scheduling Fred Janney’s workshop: Anthroposophy: What Ails Thee’ to Saturday 6 April 2019, from 7 pm – 9 pm, & Sunday 7 April, 2019, from 1 pm – 4 pm
Since Easter-Tide also includes Ascension & Whitsun, these Feast Days will be celebrated on Ascension Thursday May 2nd 2019, 7 pm – 9 pm, with Whitsunday on May 12th 2019, which is on Mother’s Day so we may not do a Festival (Let me know what you think?)

Before the Mystery of Golgotha, the task of evolution was for the spirit to become human; after the ‘turning point’, humanity must strive to become spirit; co-creators in freedom, of ‘The New Sun’.
May we awaken to the True Dawning of our Human Calling.
P.S. Folks no need to stress…We can celebrate both dates with JOY!
