Isn't it the Piscean Age we are leaving, and entering the Aquarian Age? I hadn't heard of the Faustian Age.

So do you see Satan as the force that has us focused on our ego/lower/material/physical self and focused away from our spiritual/higher self? How is Satan trying to win the grail? Do you mean by leading us away from it?
