Happy Friday, Angelorum fam! We are taking a peek at what is being resurrected in our lives for today’s perennial ‘pick an egg’ readings. Besides the obvious Easter theme of resurrection, we are also in Mercury’s pre-retrograde shadow phase. In 2024, we will spend much of the spring under the influence of Mercury Rx and the eclipses. Mercury retrograde tends to put more of an emphasis on themes beginning with the ‘re-‘ prefix. We get to go back over something from a new angle.

We are working with the Gilded Tarot for these readings.

Despite the Easter theme, these pick-a-pile Tarot readings are for whenever you happen upon them and will bring you the message you need. However, as always with general readings, only take that which resonates.

Myth and Lore Surrounding Easter Eggs

Easter eggs are a symbol of new beginnings and rebirth, with roots stretching deep into history and springtime rituals. Historically, the use of eggs in celebration can be traced back to pagan times when the egg represented the rebirth of the earth in springtime. Hens started laying eggs again as the light returned. The egg became a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, representing the tomb from which he arose, with the chick breaking out of the shell symbolising his emergence from the grave and defeat of death.

We also find the Christian Easter egg tradition in the story of Mary Magdalene, the wife of Yeshua. According to legend, Mary Magdalene went to the court of Emperor Tiberius to announce Christ’s resurrection. At this time the authorities did not recognise Christianity as a religion. To illustrate the concept of resurrection, she presented a white egg to the Emperor. Tiberius then stated that resurrection was as likely as the egg turning red. Miraculously, the egg turned a vivid red in the hand of Mary Magdalene. This became the origin of dyeing Easter eggs, a tradition that spans continents and cultures.

Over the centuries, the decoration of eggs has evolved, bearing intricate designs and diverse practices in different Christian denominations. From the intricate Pysanka eggs in Ukraine, which have complex patterns and symbolism, to the simpler tradition of colouring eggs in a single colour, the practice forms a core part of many countries’ Easter festivities. These practices create a tangible connection to the spiritual rebirth and hope that Easter represents.
