Psychology and Religion: West and East (The Collected Works of C. G. Jung, Volume 11)


Satan is locked up in the bottomless pit for a thousand years, and Christ shall reign for the same length of time. “After that he must be loosed a little season.” These thousand years correspond astrologically to the first half of the Pisces aeon. The setting free of Satan after this time must therefore correspond one cannot imagine any other reason for it to the enantiodromia of the Christian aeon, that is, to the reign of the Antichrist, whose coming could be predicted on astrological grounds. ~Carl Jung, Answer to Job.
