Okay, enough with the 2012 already, right? I promise, well, I can't promise, but I am determined to resist any more articles about 2012 and the Doomsday sayers after this one.
First of all, RELAX! 2012 is definitely not the apocalypse, nor it is any herald of great awakening and enlightenment. Why there are so many out there predicting one or the other, or both is, in my opinion coming from deep seated psyche, fears, and hopes rather than on factual evidence or astrology. Even though the predictions are supposedly based on the Mayan calendar, the fact is that there is more than one Mayan calendar, and none of them really reflect the astrology of the year.

The word “horoscope” comes from the Greek word horoskopos which means “watcher of the hour” or “observer of the hour.” The exact origin and history of horoscopes is, unfortunately, undocumented. We can trace the oldest known horoscope back to Babylon in April 29, 410 B.C., though it probably wasn’t much like any horoscope that we know of today. A lot of things have changed in the last couple thousand years
A Form of Astrology
Astrology is the broader school of study that horoscopes fall under, and is also primarily concerned with divination through the study of planetary and celestial relationships. Multiple cultures around the globe developed systems of astrology independently, including Mediterranean peoples like the Greeks, Eastern Asians such as the Chinese, and Mesoamericans including the Aztecs and the Mayans, just to name a few. The importance of the heavenly bodies to the human psyche is demonstrated by multiple cultures’ individual development of varying astrological systems, despite their wide geographical differences.
The concept of inhabitants of the Earth looking to the stars for guidance, answers and hope is one of the oldest practices known on the planet. Astrology and horoscope readings are some of the very first documented forms of human beings attempting to understand themselves and the cosmos. It shows up in etchings on cave drawings, symbols in Egyptian tombs and early texts from ancient civilizations.
With such a rich history, taking your first steps into horoscope readings can be an intimidating thing. While there is an extensive amount of information available, understanding the basic concepts and theories is no harder than learning to ride a bike. With ample studying, you might be surprised to be constantly finding new layers of meaning hidden behind everyday activities that you might have otherwise written off as good or bad luck.
So Astrology Is…
Astrology is often mis-categorized as a science due to its similarly pronounced cohort, astronomy. Astrologists typically have more in common with practices like yoga and eastern therapies like acupuncture and Feng Shui. Astrology is more appropriately labeled as a metaphysical philosophy. Think of astrology as a lens that, when applied to our lives, allows us to see things in contrasting, and often more vibrant colors.
Well the shift is here and you've probably noticed that it's all speeded up. The energy is moving through you, or at least it's trying. When it hits an obstacle and you can't get it through, it pushes the obstacle right to the surface of your consciousness. Are you may be feeling more pain, anger, argumentative, dizzy, unfocused, lethargic, purposeless, etc. That's it. It's the shift and it's bringing up your "sh--t". Everything is up for processing and hopefully uses this period to release.
So what's the shift and why is it doing that? People have been talking about this December 21st, 2012, end date of the Mayan Calendar for quite some time. Well the world didn't end, obviously, but something's different. This is serious, so I'm going to try and give you a simple explaination in the short space of this article.
You're probably aware of astrology and how the planets are moving in and about certain constellations and that causes shifts in the physical world. The reason that it works that way is because the entire universe is composed of one energy that radiates from the center of the universe through all the galaxies, through the Milky Way, the solar system, planet earth and finally right through the top of you, through your body and into the earth.
