Many years ago the Maya Indians of Mesoamerica devised a highly accurate calendar system. In this calendar 2012 predictions were made relating to the end of the current bakun, or cycle, and an Armageddon like event was anticipated. With the modern age upon us it is difficult to take all the predictions of Maya culture verbatim. In New Age philosophy it is generally seen as a period of spiritual renewal. Galactic Changes With our improved understanding of the stars and their movement we can anticipate changes that are due. In the year 2012 we will be moving from the galactic Age of Pisces and entering the Age of Aquarius (no I’m not kidding), because the movement of the planet, sun and other bodies will cause Aquarius to become visible on the horizon during the Spring equinox. This hasn’t happened in about 26,000 years, by the way. Prophetic Ages? There are many sources that like to suggest that in the year 2012 the world will end. Causes suggested range from geomagnetic reversal to a massive solar flare. While there are no scientific indications that such things will happen in the next few years, it is impossible to rule out anything completely. From Nostradamus to Merlin and on to modern doomsayers, people have drawn attention to the potential for an earth ending event in this millennium. Which predictions, if any, are correct will only be discovered at the time. Numerology and 2012 Numerologist describe the year 2012 as a 5 year. Five is a number associated with change, often of a significant intensity. Inept leadership and major traffic disasters are suggested as possibilities during this year. We are told to expect a lot of turmoil and agitation world wide. In anticipation it might be worth while to have your own numbers read to avoid concerning situations. No matter what 2012 predictions are being made one thing is certain, the only way to definitively know exactly what will happen is to live through it. I encourage you to find your favorite method of mysticism and see what 2012 is destined to bring to your door.
