What’s going to happen on 12/21/12?

2012 is claimed to be a great year of spiritual transformation (or apocalypse). Many esoteric sources interpret the completion of the twelfth B’ak’tun cycle in the Long Count of the Maya calendar (which occurs on December 21 by the most widely held correlation) to mean there will be a major change in world order.

Several experts have predicted a special astrological/astronomical alignment between the Galactic center in the constellation of Sagittarius, the Winter Solstice point, and the open cluster of the Pleiades. Factually, the coincidence of the Winter Solstice point (due to the precession of the Equinoxes) and the galactic center is basically true.

Let me explain.

In the solar system, the planets and the Sun lie roughly within the same level area or plane. This plane is known as the plane of the ecliptic. From our perspective on Earth-looking up at the sky- the ecliptic is the path the Sun takes across the sky over the course of the year. Imagine a strip of sky the sun passes through over the earth. There are also twelve constellations that line the path the sun takes. These constellations are known as the zodiacal constellations. Zodiacal constellations are the signs you are familiar with such as Libra, Pisces, Aries, etc.

You actually determine what your “sign” is by which zodiacal constellation the sun is passing through in its path when you are born. Anyways, annually, the Sun passes through all of the signs or constellations one at a time.  Over time, the Sun’s annual trip through the constellations appears to move very slowly backward by one degree every 72 years or by one constellation approximately every 2,160 years. This backward movement is called “precession”. This movement backwards is due to a slight wobble in the Earth’s axis as it spins, and can be compared to the way a spinning top wobbles as it slows down. Over the course of 25,800 years, a period often called a Great Year; the Sun’s completes a full trip or makes a full backward rotation passing through all the zodiac constellations.

In Western astrological traditions, precession is measured from the March equinox, one of the two points a year where the Sun is exactly halfway between its lowest and highest points in the sky. Presently, the Sun’s March equinox position is in the constellation Pisces and is moving backwards or preceding (making it’s precession) into Aquarius. This signals the end of one astrological age (the Age of Pisces) and the beginning of another (the Age of Aquarius). This movement of the sun backwards into Aquarius will happen as the sun makes it way halfway through the Milky Way (Winter Solstice) and the Mayan calendar marked this significant astrological event in their calendar-December 21, 2012.

The Age of Aquarius is associated with electricity, computers, flight, democracy, freedom, humanitarianism, idealism, modernization, astrology, nervous disorders, rebellion, non-conforming, philanthropy, veracity, perseverance, humanity and irresolution. Many astrologers have marked the coming of the Age of Aquarius through the appearance of multiple of these characteristics in the last few years. We are in the Piscean Age right now and it is much different than Aquarian Age. This could be the transformation the Mayans are talking about.

Piscean Age        

  • Independence
  • What’s in it for me?
  • Duality-right and wrong
  • Machines
  • Competition
  • One leader
  • Motivated by fear
  • Separation
  • Insanity of the ego
  • Focus on differences
  • Hide behind a persona
  • Intellectual
  • Scarcity
  • Dependence on authority
  • Slave to the senses
  • Go and get it
  • Work harder and work smarter

The Aquarian Age symbolizes a big difference in comparison to the Piscean Age

  • Interdependence
  • How can my actions benefit the whole?
  • Unity and oneness
  • Awareness and information
  • Cooperation
  • Many leaders
  • Motivated by the greater good and love
  • Connection/synthesis
  • Focus on uniqueness
  • Integrity
  • Abundance
  • Intuitive
  • Personal responsibility
  • Spirit prevails over the material
  • Sit inside yourself and attract what you need

All these things can be easily seen to be happening in our world slowly but surely. Each age lasts approximately 2,160 years so it may take time for the effects of the Aquarian Age to take hold but we can see how things are already changing slowly but surely. Maybe the Mayans were merely telling us to take notice of the sky and how it effects on us on earth. Either way big changes are happening regardless of 12-21-12. Hopefully for the greater good and a more spiritual way of life.
