We are in fact in the Last Days... the last days of the Age of Pisces. This is a rough time!! As the Age began, not with the birth of our Lord, but with His death and resurrection, we can put things in perspective when it comes to 'rough!'.
It is not surprising that we feel real despair at the state of our nation. Pisces is at an extreme degree, and Pisces is extreme in itself!! Religious fervor is a hallmark of the Fishes, and this trait in any murderous sect is repugnant in the extreme! Pisces is about self sacrifice, martyrdom, as well as delusion, illusion, addiction to drugs and to intense emotional shocks to the system, all so evident in our daily life now as the Age gasps the final breath.
The sun is currently rising at 4 degrees of sidereal Pisces at the spring equinox, where it remains for the rest of our lifetime...considering it reaches 0 Pisces in 2400 AD. This still puts us well within the cusp of Aquarius, and we feel that back and forth tug which not only characterizes Pisces, but the the next sign also. Aquarius is an air sign, full of ideas whose time has not yet come, with its feet in the air and head even higher. Our sun rises abutting the first decanate of Aquariu, as the water bearer is facing the uprising fish of Pisces. This decanate is called The Mouth of The Fish. That says a mouthful about our current times!!
In Matthew 17:27, we read the words of Jesus Himself: 'But so that we may not cause offense, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.'
So many have puzzled over the meaning of this little statement by Jesus, wondering what it meant, and why such a small thing was included in the all-important Word. There is no other reason that such a line should be included, save that it refers to the decanate of Aquarius. Isn't it amazing that the Gospel fits astrology so perfectly!! And that we are guided, step by step, in the footprints of Jesus by the stars? One of the proofs that the sacred science of astrology is still valid is the recurrence of actions and reactions in accordance with the story in the stars. This is precisely where we are in the window of time, at the Mouth of the Fish, to discover the miracle of Christ Himself!!
The Mouth of the Fish is stating that He will pay our tax, which He already has done. The first part of that line is 'but so that we may not cause offense...' telling indeed! So apropos to our day! Just about everyone everywhere is ready to take offense at every opportunity! And here is Jesus with a direct message for our day: 'so that we may not cause offense.'
This tells us everything we need to know!
Ok, so we are alarmed enough now, bordering on anger...well Star Travelers in the footsteps of Christ, anger is a sin. Our anger may be rightous, but only when it comes to earthly things. Are we earthly things? Nope. Can we rethink our feelings when we see those around us consumed with rage, railing against cartoons and soup cans and pancakes, and realize this is not our way, not our destiny, and that only one thing divides us from those raging, ungodly, walking dead? That one thing being our belief in Christ, that He has everything under control, and no matter what happens here on earth, we have our future with Him.
I know, I know, but to ensure that others have the same opportunity to learn about Jesus, and to decide to follow Him, is one of the foundational tenets of American life. No one said that would be guaranteed, or that it would be easy, and my fellow Star Travelers, we have had a really easy time of it for the last 245 years. Our freedom of speech, of religion, has been guaranteed, as well as the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness, however we choose. It's been quite a while since we Americans have had to fight for what we hold dear.
Yes, it is time to Joan up, and we do this by prayer, prayer, and more prayer, not by panicking, becoming afraid or angry. We have no reason to fear. Our battle is already won by a far superior force, as witnessed by the fact that we are not the ones raging against every little thing, taking offense at trifles. Remember that important point in these last days of Pisces- 'lest we give offense', which we do not do. Our confidence in God, our blessed assurance, our Hope, is what is being examined here and now, and we don't want to foul it up now!!
And yes I know exactly what you are thinking, what you are so worried about...and she does fit the bill. She wears purple studded with jewels, she laughs uncontrollably as do the possessed, she is definitley drunk on power and hates the saints. She claims to be person of faith, which is really disturbing, in fact they both claim to be people of faith...one clutches a rosary while supporting the Slaughter of Innocents. She is a long time associate of politicians, one in particular who has been called the One Who Fell Like Lightning... and this makes our spiritual life even more important than our guns. Jesus told us specifically via Luke:
Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what you shall answer, for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which allyour adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist...
In your patience posses your souls...
It's a wonder that psychics, sensitives, intuitives, seers, prophets and the Holy Wise don't take themselves, and the position they have, a great deal more seriously. With the churches and clergy in catastrophic collapse, having failed us all spectacularly, the Inspired are all that believers and wanderers alike have in this world for spiritual guidance.
And this world is itself in a state of catastrophic renewal!! We need not move so hesitantly through the birth of the new world age; Aquarius is visibly rising, as promised, and with its so the hope of all Christians! Though the churches are empty and secular humanism morphs into outright atheism, yet we of the spirit still triumphantly rise!
The anchors and symbols of Aquarian Christianity are everywhere, guiding us without and within as we approach greater understanding of our mission on earth and in heaven.
We first meet the sign of Aquarius in the Gospel of Mark, where in 14:13 we read, So He sent two of His disciples and told them, "Go into the city, and a man carrying a water jug will meet you. Follow him 14 and wherever he enters, say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher says, "Where is My guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?"'…
Luke 22:10 He said to them, "Behold, when you have entered the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him into the house that he enters".
This man with a jug makes no other appearance in the Gospel and was unknown to the apostles; he just was there on the way to Jerusalem exactly where and when Our Savior needed him. To unbelievers, the mans appearance is totally random and suspicious, baffling them; but to the wise who follow The Way, he is easily identifiable him as the first symbol and sign of Aquarius the water bearer in Our Saviors journey.
He appears here right in time, right in line for us to follow too, as Jesus directed us 'to follow him into the house that he enters.'
Aquarius is also identified with the handsome Greek youth Ganymede, of whom the king of the gods and the heavens become enraptured. Zeus abducted the young man by assuming the form of an eagle and spiriting him away to the heavens, where he became the cup bearer of the archetypes, gods, and heroes of the zodiac. This can be seen as a gay interlude for Zeus, which may account for the sudden rise in interest and concern for gay rights in the Aquarian Age.
Plato however points out that according to Socrates, Ganymede is actually ganu-"taking pleasure," and med-, "mind." Ganymede, he points out, was not the catamite of Zeus, but that the relationship was platonic though deep and intense. The king of the gods loved the young man for his psyche, mind or soul, as evinced by the etymology of his name.
Ganymede later was recognized by the Egyptians as the catalyst of the fountains of the Nile, the life-giving and fertilizing river which meant life or death. Thus, the cup bearer of heaven had close connections to rain, rivers and bodies of water, as well as the water supply on earth.
Is Ganymede, gay or not, the good friend, trusted and loyal, of the gods of ancient days, in the Christian Gospel? Certainly he is.
Mark 14: 35 And He went on a little and fell on the ground, and was praying that if it was possible that this hour might pass from Him. And He said, ''Abba, my father, you can do everything. Make this cup pass from Me." A bit later, in 14: 51, 'A young man was following Him, wearing nothing but a linen sheet over his naked body; and they seized him. 52. But he pulled free of the linen sheet and escaped naked.'
Don't be so quick to dismiss this as a gratuitous lurid detail; this little item has been puzzling orthodox Christianity for two thousand years.
Why did Jesus use that particular phrase, 'the cup'? And how could anyone know what Jesus said in prayer to His father? Everyone was asleep!! They had deserted Him in His agony. There was, further, no time to speak privately to His followers as He was immediately arrested and had no further recourse to them until after He had risen.
It's obvious, when you consider that Jesus is the king of heaven, and the cup is mentioned because the cup bearer is not far behind. Thus we can consider Ganymede as the angel of the cup.
Directly across from Aquarius is the constellation Leo, the sign of the King; within this constellation lies a smaller cluster of stars called Crater, Latin for 'the Cup.'
The stars of the constellation Aquarius are named Sadalmelik, the lucky stars of the king, Sadalsuud, the luckiest of lucky stars, and Sadachbia, lucky star of the home.
Perhaps the most encouraging symbol of the new age appears with the woman at the well, the Samaritan. Found in John 4, verses 1 through 41, this story centers around another figure with a jar, a water bearer, a source of water or deep wisdom, and a confrontation with Jesus that confirms universal salvation. 39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, "He told me everything I ever did." 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. 41 And because of his words many more became believers.
He told me everything I ever did... and because of His words many more became believers.'
We are always free to connect with the Gospel in the Stars in the manner we choose. God gave us free will, and He wasn't kidding or stinting on it. We wanted to be responsible for our own salvation, and so He made it entirely up to us, as gods, to accept it and live it, or to reject it and try to do it on our own.
We can immerse ourselves in waning Pisces by becoming extreme in our views, our politics, our diet, our medicine, and repudiate law enforcement representing the Virgo axis (Virgo, sign of service and the Services, lies directly opposite Pisces in the zodiac).
We can act like airy Aquarians, embracing fraternity that ends up in fratricide, and aborting our children en mass in rejection of Leo, the family centered and child loving sign opposite it. Leo, remember, is the sign of the King, also.
Interestingly, the last decanate of Aquarius is that of Cygnus, the swan, which many of us call the Northern Cross. The Ancients considered Cygnus to be a point destination for the souls of the dead at departure. Cygnus was a close friend of Phaeton, the son of Icarus who flew too close to the sun on waxen wings and met his demise at sea. Cygnus dived into the sea and swam in circles trying to recover the body of his lost friend after his fiery catastrophe.
The individual names for the stars of the constellation include Who Goes and Comes; Flying Quickly; Glorious Shining; and He Shall Come Down. The years covered by this last decanate will be approximately 2400 to 2460. Not meaning to set dates, but make of this what you will.
