Esoteric astrology as news for the week of March 8 through 14:

Here we are in a Mercury retrograde, under Pisces (two fish hiding behind ferns) — and at the beginning Lent (40 days and nights of purifying our elementals). Pisces is the sign of the World Savior, the sign that “saves the world.” Our world at this time is in the heart of the Kali Yuga which is a time of darkness. It is a darkness, out and about, and allowed to be seen by humanity. The Kali Yuga is a time when truth is obscured and humanity becomes confused. This darkness is allowed so humanity can begin to discern light from dark, truth from untruth, moral from the immoral, and goodness from evil. The darkness is thus purposeful for humanity’s upward evolution. Pisces is esoterically known as the “Light of the World.” The Pisces light ends forever the darkness (ignorance, cruelty, hopelessness, evil, etc.).
Pisces is known for its saviors, for sacrifice, and sense of dying to the world. Saviors appear periodically on Earth, dying to their state of paradise, sacrificing themselves to help in the struggles of humanity. They are Bodhisattvas, promising to remain on Earth until all have awakened. Their words, the keynote of Pisces, “I leave the Father’s House (heaven), I return to Earth, in order to serve (in Aquarius) and save humanity (in Pisces).” Christ (archangel from Sirius, overshadowing Jesus of Galilee) was our last and present (Pisces-Aquarius) Savior and World Teacher. This is his season, the season of Lent. We stand with him in the desert for 40 days and nights. Lent is a time of preparing our elementals (the stuff our bodies are made of) for a new year, a new season (spring equinox), when the sun enters Aries. And this year, it is also the Aries solar festival, when the forces of restoration stream into the Earth. Lent prepares us for the Resurrection Festival, which we call Easter (April 21).
