Pentecost is Greek, (Pentēkostē) for “fiftieth” that esoterically commentates the day the Holy Spirit fell on the Earth giving direct access to the spiritual realms and Divine wisdom to the Disciples (The 12 Disciplines).
Whit Sunday (White Sunday) is another name for The Day of Pentecost.
50 days (the seventh Sunday) after the ascension of Christ on Resurrection Sunday (the celebration of the Easter [the East Star]).
Easter completes a 3-day holiday starting with Good Friday (Venus the fallen Morning Star and choosing the Right Path) and Black Saturday (Christ obtain the keys to Dark Realms and opening the “Tomb”)

Pentecost Astro Influences
The Day of Pentecost almost always happens during Gemini Season (every 7-8 years happening on the every tail of Taurus Season. rarely less than 7 years depending of several factors ex: leap year) this holiday falls between the Gemini New Moon and the Sagittarius Full Moon.
Gemini is the love of information, communicating with a dualistic viewpoint. the lower self discovering the higher self, the mirror, dual-mind is realized.
Sagittarius is faith, philosophy and higher knowledge. the Archer shoots the arrow directly at ones Souls purpose and fulfill the Plan of God.
the Gemini New Moon is the opening of the higher mind to expand in the direction of the Highest Mind. The Day of Pentecost is sandwiched betweenthese two activation points.

Spiritual meaning of 50
the number 50 is the number of the complete Spirit.
Five is the numerical representation of Spirit. the account is recorded in the book of Acts 2:1–31 (Acts of the Apostles) which so happens to be the 5th book of the New Testament.
Zero represents reciprocity, service and completions. Luke 6:38 this number is also characterized as the number of God or Divine, the Great Mind where everything was formed and came out of.
Five and zero combined symbolizes complete access to Spirit, with spiritual realms accessible to those who live (worship becomes a lifestyle) from Spirit and Truth. John 4:24
Spiritual meaning of 7
the significance of seven is prevalent in the Biblical Text. Pentecost happens exactly on the seventh Sunday after Easter. this fact connects another layer of completion to the act of the Resurrection, especially speaking.
there are 7 Sun•Days after the rebirth of the Sun, marking a week. East•Star (Easter) is the celebration of the resurrection of the Son (Sun).
7 is the completion of a cycle and fulfillment. every 7 years debts are forgiven, the land is given a resting year and the week ends. it’s the number of the Sabbath meaning rest, and can be connected to forgiveness.
