With so much attention focused on 2012 Mayan astrology and the doomsday Mayan prophecy for the end of the world December 21st, 2012, we decided to take a close look at the 2012 Mayan prophecy. Did the Mayans actually make astrology predictions for the end of the world in 2012? What did Mayan astrologers actually have to say about the year 2012? So much of the historical record was destroyed by the Conquistadors, along with most of the Mayans. Some say the Mayans foretold of the end of THEIR world before that happened, so perhaps we should listen!
What remains of Mayan astrology reveals incredible knowledge of astronomy and astrology. The Mayan calendar shows that the Mayans were capable of precise and accurate astrological calculations well into the future. In fact, they knew that the Galactic Center of our Milky Way galaxy and the plane of the ecliptic, upon which Western astrology signs are drawn, and our Sun, would align with our earth in an extraordinary and unique way on 12-21-2012 at 11:11 AM Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). They called this crossing the Sacred Tree and while it does make 2012 astrology quite powerful, the 2012 Mayan prophecy did NOT call for the end of the world in 2012. Rather, the end of 2012 is the end of a Great cycle and the beginning of new Great cycle in their calendar. Let's explore the facts.
The Mayan calendar uses various counts as does the Western calendar (days, weeks, months, years). The Mayan counts have exotic names and the Mayan Cycles and counts are based on different things than ours, but they accomplish the same purpose of measuring time. Just as we reset counting days from 1 when each month ends, they had short counts that start over. A year had 260 days based on the human gestation cycle. They even had another count for a 365 day year and they also had a 360 day year. What we're interested in is their Long Count, or Great Cycle of about 5125 years, which ends December 21st, 2012.
But what about changes in the Western calendar, the precession of the equinoxes, the shift of seasons discrepancies between celestial movement and our imprecise measurement of time based on the earth's revolution around the sun? Since we adjusted our calendar to Gregorian, wouldn't the Mayan's miss our dates completely?
Unfortunately, we DO have the correct date for the 2012 Mayan prophecy and it is based on sound 2012 Mayan astrology from thousands of years ago. Their calendar ends 21 December, 2012!
Fortunately, not only does nothing in Western astrology suggest the end of the world in 2012, Mayan astrology for 2012 doesn't even call for the end of the world on December 21st 2012. Rather, it calls for the end of an AGE and the beginning of a new AGE! They would obviously never have been looking at 2012 astrology per se, but we can map their time to ours and this was done definitively in the middle of the 20th century.
To the Mayan people, astrology was very important. They built a great civilization and elevated astrology to the status of astronomy. The two were inseparable. Mayan prophecies are based upon spiritual beliefs about consciousness and the evolution of humankind. They believed that with the end of the Great Cycle, which began more than 5,000 years ago, would come a new feminine energy in our consciousness and a great step forward in human enlightenment. The Mayan prophecy for 2012 calls for the evolution of the human race and the dawn of a new age.
The world will still be here in the year 2013. Core values are changing as people are reawakened to their spiritual nature and find that empty materialism has failed us. Even without the cosmic energy that will be released at the Winter Solstice from this once in 26,000 year galactic convergence, there will be floods, earthquakes, fire and famine. Some of these are inevitable forces of nature that remind us of the ominous power of creation and the necessary destruction that prefaces it (think Big Bang). Other catastrophes and tragedies are caused by the activities of us, as human beings upon the planet and toward one another.
Environmental recklessness has done damage. Our dominion over the animals and our claim to every living thing in this world as belonging to us has damaged the earth's ecosystem.
Social Darwinism has failed to elevate humanity and many cruelties exist in our world. Indifference and apathy are rampant. War, death, loss, pain and suffering are daily.
The truth is that the human condition will always bring pain and suffering, but it is only worsened by our destructive reactions, selfishness and greed. Yet there is much light in this world and a universal consciousness. We believe that this light will shine more brightly between now and December 21st, 2012 than it has in over 5,000 years. We believe that the universe is ready to take us to a higher plane of consciousness and that the stage has been setting for many years. This powerful, positive shift has been occurring through all of our recorded history and we are all heading toward a great awakening.
Even now we see ourselves changing, growing, reaching and striving for something more...something meaningful and fulfilling. Great political changes are afoot and people are no longer content with the status quo. Tahrir Square, Libya, The Occupy Wall Street movement and a broad reorganization of priorities and values is underway. The world has never been more connected and in 2012, we will grow closer still. The terrible disparity in income and prosperity between rich and poor will shrink, but it will be a process and one that will define the first decades of this century. It is no longer possible to hide the suffering of those less fortunate and we are no longer so able to look away. Perhaps the great humbling of the G8 economies, so many countries of the Eurozone and America and the consequences of greed and corruption have been necessary to push us forward.
Women are being recognized as equals and full members of societies where no one imagined it to be possible. Today more women in America attend higher education than men and are gaining long overdue ground in their struggle for equal positions and equal pay. The education of girls, so critical to the future of any society, is on the rise.
Clean water, safe shelter, nontoxic cooking stoves, improved sanitation and sustainable agriculture are spreading globally in places like Africa and other less developed parts of the world. In the richest and most powerful nations, it is now understood that we are all in this together and we must find new ways of cooperating to ensure our collective survival. Corporations, which after all are run by people, are stepping up to deliver socially and environmentally progressive solutions to global problems. Technology innovations abound and we have never had such widespread access to information and each other. Governments are increasingly cooperative.
Yet we still have so far to go.
In Western astrology for 2012 - 2013, we edge ever closer toward the Age of Aquarius with values like peace, empathy, harmony and a global brother/sisterhood gaining momentum in the collective conscious and unconscious. December 21st 2012 will not bring the end of the world and the Mayan prophecy for 2012 didn't call for the end of the world. No, the Mayans in their wisdom knew what we are coming to the brink of understanding. Life is like the Sacred Tree or the Universe itself. It is a great and precious mystery how it comes to be and we do not understand all of its workings with our rational mind. In our deeper consciousness, our intuition and our empathy, and in our divine spark, we will fulfill the 2012 Mayan prophecy for the elevation of consciousness. It is the old world that is coming to an end and a new Age is upon is. Whatever disasters, catastrophes or cataclysms we face, we face them together and we survive because we do.
This is the Mayan 2012 astrology reading you need to contemplate between now and December 2012: increased sensitivity and heightened consciousness within - an awakening of the feminine energy, not some doomsday apocalypse! 2012 - 2013 is the year to make those changes to consciousness manifest in your life and your world.
