We now have Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Neptune in the 12th division of the zodiac, known as Pisces. That's not all that is going on though because the planetoid Chiron is also there with them. On 10th March the Moon will join this line up to make 7 planetary bodies in total. Now isn't that about the time a new Pope will be elected? Hmmm, interesting because although conclave was originally set to begin March 15th "it is now widely expected that the cardinals will lock themselves away in the conclave in about two weeks' time - around the weekend of 11 March" - BBC.
Could the Vatican be taking their timing from the skies? Well it may interest you to know that Jesus Christ (and a Pope because he is seen as the emissary of Jesus) is allied in astrology to the sign that all these planets will be occupying - Pisces This correspondence is for a number of esoteric reasons which a vast proportion of the population who already have an interest in astrological symbolism are probably unaware. Indeed of which many astrologers are also possibly still unaware.
Some understand it to be related to the fact that the Vernal Point has been precessing back through the constellation called Pisces in the Christian era, others think the period when the Sun is traversing the sign of Pisces coincides with Christ's true birthday. There's some truth in the former but the real reason Pisces as a sign (not a constellation) has come to be associated with Jesus and religion, and why it is such interesting timing for the Pope to make his 'abdication' is found in the knowledge that the biblical tale that Jesus 'died on the cross'. This is actually an occulted (which means hidden or veiled) reference to the annual cycle of the Sun (son) which after its time in the 30 degree division we call Pisces appears* to transition from one place to another as it passes from the Southern hemisphere to the Northern hemisphere at the spring (vernal) equinox (0 Aries).
Thus the Sun (Son of God) leaves the lower plane (hemisphere) for the higher one 'crossing' the celestial equator on March 20 resurrecting day length and warmth and reinvigorating nature in the North. The Sun is reborn to new life! It's arisen into a new hemisphere. Can you recognise the allegory? Son...Dies on cross... Arises/Is resurrected.
Think about this. What does it all mean? Can you imagine what would happen to the Church if as well as having to recognise that senior religious figures have long been covering up acts of indecent behaviour and financial shenanigans, the faithful then began to discover that the fundamental tenet upon which the entire Christian faith is founded; that of the crucifixion, death and resurrection of an actual person called Jesus Christ, is spurious too!
“The time will come when the secret wisdom, shall again be the dominating religious and philosophical urge of the world. The day is at hand when the doom of dogma shall be sounded…Out of the cold ashes of lifeless creeds shall rise, phoenix like, the ancient mysteries” Manly P. Hall
Start researching this for yourself. The truth is hard to get to due to the fact that in the first few centuries of the common era, when there was a raging battle for power and moral authority, forgeries, false insertions, rewriting, interpolation and general butchering of the texts was a common occurrence. It eventually becomes clear however, that a large number of the Scriptures are allegorical tales; veiled blueprints; a cache of ancient knowledge; a deliberately encoded teaching tool about the workings of nature, the heavens, the human anatomy - specifically the brain - and the pathway to enlightenment. Enlightenment being the recognition that we are human beings who have strayed away from our spiritual nature and innate divinity. Enlightenment is our return to God, whilst still alive.
We are each a differentiated part of God (God = the Universe and its forces). We are like fractals of the whole. Heaven is not a place 'up there', rather it is a state we can create in our daily life when we can bring the left and right hemispheres of our brain into alignment and our internal bodily systems into perfect harmony with the external rhythms of nature.The study of planetary cycles (astrology - and many Eastern practices such as Yoga and Meditation) teaches us how to do that. Since time immemorial Man has noted that what was happening up above was affecting what was happening around and within him. Only those blinkered by religious doctrines refuse to see it.
Getting back to Jesus though: when the Sun occupies the division of ecliptic (the apparent path of the Sun) right before the vernal equinox, this sector is known as Pisces. The Sun (allegorized as the Son of God) will always be there for a period of 30 degrees of the 360 circle - approximately 30 days. This division is the 12th sector of the whole cycle of the Sun cycle. It is no coincidence that some priests say Jesus was 12 when he started his teachings or that Luke 3:23 states that Jesus was "about 30 years" of age when he started his ministry (Pisces = 12th sign. 12 signs of 30 degrees. 1 degree = a day or a year so that in the language of symbolism equals 30 years).
Jesus is then said to have ministered for 3 years. He was crucified at 33. All numbers in the Bible have layers and layers of meaning. The number 33 is highly important in the human body (for reasons we shall see) and you will always find it linked to the name of Christ. It's nothing to do with the age of the former carpenter in the tale or how long he taught for.
|Can you see the symbolism of Jesus as the 'Light of life' ( The Sun) on the cross here?|
Jesus is also said to have arisen from the dead after 3 days. This is another veiled truth for due to the refracting or bending effects* of the Earth's atmosphere the observed equinox precedes the true equinox by a few days in Spring. (In the fall it follows by a few days). So the Sun (allegorical son) is observed to have died 'on the cross' and is then found to have arisen 3 days later ( 30 +3 = 33) when the Sun has left Pisces behind and 'arisen' in Aries.
The Sun is the giver of all life and light. Light is measured in wavelength. All the activity of the Sun alters the electromagnetic fields that we live within and which our neurons respond to. The daily and annual rhythm of dark to light and the varying angularity of the light rays the Sun delivers to Earth has specific oscillatory effects upon the human body. Each person is like a finely tuned instrument. In our bodies even our CSF (Cerebral Spinal Fluid) known as 'Brain waters' ( mer = the word for water and is 'coincidentally' the root of the word Mary!) pulsates to a rhythm.
CSF fills the spinal cord which links the 33 vertebrae (hence age of Jesus 33 when he died and 33 degrees of Freemasonry) of the spine and floods the brain cavities. It is known to have an oily quality to it. Thus the brain water 'anoints' the nervous and endocrine system. CSF is affected by the internal and external factors and is replaced approximately every 6 hours.
The brain is cushioned from the skull by CSF and in the brain the Optic Chiasm is a literal crossing of nerves at the base of the brain. The optic chiasm and optic tracts process photons (light) and decode the wavelengths we receive. It links* into our pineal gland, at the base of the 3rd ventricle, which is known as the 'Third Eye' (Google all about the third eye). When day and night are of equal length this has a markedly different effect on our brains cells and therefore our internal systems to other times. It's a cross over point, a point of momentary equilibrium and harmony with our environment and in esoteric terms offers a potential window for bridging spiritual and physical. Above all it's when a new cycle begins in our bodily systems. One day I'm sure we will all be given the day off on Equinoxes to celebrate the start of a new year!
So, as you have heard the equinoxes are times of maximum power and are dates of supreme importance to religious leaders. In astrology the time when the Sun crosses the celestial equator (Equinox) has come to be known as a World Point due to the fact that events which affect us individually and collectively often seem to coincide with the date in March. This is for a two fold reason a) we are naturally prompted by external rhythms and environmental factors to feel the start of a new cycle and b) leaders will often choose to initiate important events around this day +/-3 as they know it will carry the power of a new cycle behind it.
The Pope most certainly knew, or was directed to ensure, that his papacy reached its conclusion in line with the cycle of the Sun. It had to be assured that a new successor could be in place by the end of the sign of Pisces, hence the papal decree to bring forward conclave.
Still not sure that what I am writing has any validity?
If you look at these three images you will see how this knowledge about light and the 'cross' is hidden in plain sight in the heraldry of the Holy SEE!.

The keys represent the keys to unlocking the mysteries of enlightenment where Man can finally reach a level of consciousness where he can become reunified with God. In the Christian 'teaching tale' Jesus was crucified at Mount Calvary (Golgotha).In Latin Calvaria means "a skull" The skull is represented by the chalice which explains why it was the religious custom for a chalice to be consecrated by being anointed with chrism. Chrism is Christ oil i.e. CerebroSpinalFluid. CSF carries hormones, including melatonin from the pineal gland whose secretions are affected by light input through the eyes.
There's far too much arcane wisdom to reveal in such a small space but suffice to say the reason that the sign of Pisces correlates, in astrological literature, with religion, wholeness, contemplation, sacrifice, oil, water, redemption, atonement, charity, compassion selfless service to humanity, renunciation, being cloistered away, visions, miracles and other such key words is all linked directly to the Christ story.
Above all though it is the 12th sign and always the end of one complete cycle of the Sun/Earth relationship.** For this reason the abdication of the Pope at this specific time gives the prophecy of the Last Pope added significance for "the prophecy ends with a pope identified as "Peter the Roman", whose pontificate will allegedly bring the destruction of the city of Rome and usher in the beginning of the Apocalypse"
Apocalypse is actually a Greek word meaning an uncovering or unveiling. The destruction of Rome is a most certainly a euphemism for the destruction of the Catholic Church. Therefore there is every chance that the next pope really will be the 'Last Pope'. 'The end times' are coming. They are not the end of time itself but the end of the time of ignorance, religious dogma, denial and deceit. It is surely going to prove impossible to uphold Catholicism as it currently stands as more and more people work to unveil the hidden truth of the Bible and the Christ story.
That's all from me for now,
Hope I've interested you to find out more. There's a lot of rubbish out there, but I recommend all texts, books and talks by Manly P. Hall and browsing sacredtexts.com is a great place to start.

*There is a pathway from the retinas to the hypothalamus called the retinohypothalamic tract. It brings information about light and dark cycles to a region of the hypothalamus called the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). From the SCN, nerve impulses travel via the pineal nerve (sympathetic nervous system) to the pineal gland.
