Big movements are afoot in the heavens as the planets jostle into position, signifying no less than the birth of a new consciousness. But with birth sometimes comes painful transitions until mother and child are resting in each others arms. The beginning of this goes back to the “Harmonic Convergence” of the ‘80s, but the most recent turn of events is showing a ratcheting up of the energy to the point where something’s got to give, as they say.
The Astrology of December 21, 2012
According to a lot of people, December, 2012 will bring either great disaster, or great awakening. What's the astrology about all of this?
Astrology is about cycles. All of the 2012 configurations, began with the harmonic convergence in the 1980s and was stepped up in 2011 when a series of hard aspects between Uranus and Pluto began. There were Grand Crosses with planets in Cardinal signs (These are Aries, Cancer, Libra, Virgo).
Uranus - the planet of independence and unexpected change had a hand in the "Arab Spring." Then there was the "Occupy movement" spurred on by the interactions of Uranus with Pluto. Pluto has a hand in shifting old energy that needs changing. He is not subtle. He is an atom bomb.
What's different with this cycle of Pluto and Uranus?
In 2012, the galactic equator stands at 0 degrees Capricorn. This is where the Sun will be at the Winter solstice - Dec. 21.
At 11:12 GMT on December 21, the Sun will contact what is called the "Dark Rift" located near the center of the galaxy. This is referred to by the Mayans as the "Cosmic Womb," a place of great transformation, death, birth, and awakening from darkness.
With this alignment, plus Pluto in Capricorn, old structures that have been stable for a long time in society are crumbling and need to be renovated.
The players for this time of year are Uranus, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, plus minor support figures of Mars, Mercury, and Venus.
Anita Burns --
Throughout my life, there have been numerous times when the metaphysical community has become enthusiastic, excited, or anxious about a prophecy that was supposed to bring great awakening or great disaster to the Earth. Without exception, the result has proven to be less than anticipated.
I have learned to take a wait-and-see stance to all the predictions of global disaster, ET invasions, the coming of Christ, the awakening of super spirituality, and the beginning of the Aquarian Age, etc. As an astrologer, I check the “stars” with each prediction and usually the hype is exaggerated or even completely off-base, perhaps because of miscalculations or lack of deeper knowledge of esoteric astrology.
I also check with living saints and sages of the world to find out what they have to say in the matter. Usually there is either no mention of the event or that it is greatly exaggerated.
However, in 2007 the transit of Venus between the Sun and the Earth was talked about in the circles of scientists as well as saints and sages.
Most religions began with a channelled message from the spirit realms (for example, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam). Channelling is an immensely ancient ability that was used by prophets, sibyls, shamans and wisdom keepers of many of our earliest civilisations.
The process involves not only speaking to Spirit but also listening for a reply. On a visit to Mount Sinai/Horeb, Moses channelled the 10 Commandments, similarly other Old Testament prophets communed with their deity to gain wisdom.
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.
Introduction: Through a Glass Darkly
"A great cycle of time ends in 2012 according to the Maya, but the calendar continues. Second, no one has ever found a Mayan prophecy about 2012. The actual, ancient Maya did not predict any particular happening in 2012 except the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next. "
Most of us sense that the human species is hurtling toward some sort of event horizon. Images of apocalypse, extinction and metamorphosis haunt the collective imagination, but most efforts to look through the dark glass of the future and see what’s up ahead have been dismal failures.
