What will The New Year of 2012 Bring?
What can we expect with the New Year? Each New Year brings its own set of natural phenomena that’s activated by the alignment of the planets and the positioning of the stars. Many people have been speculating about what the end of the Mayan Calendar in December of 2012 will mean for the human race. Will the world come to an end?
Serious Astrologers do not believe that the world will end in 2012. In fact, many scholars believe the end of the Mayan Calendar will mark the beginning of a new-found enlightenment for the human race.
The stars and certain astrological developments offer predictions of positive periods of fascinating growth. It seems that most Astrologers agree it will be a year of change in human consciousness. Neptune will play a significant role in February, when it enters Pisces. This will be a time of much artistic creativity and activity, particularly for those working in the visual arts, literature, poetry, and music.
Neptune in Pisces may also focus on the element of water and its importance to us. It can symbolize excess and scarcity, as well as flooding and droughts, reminding us how to use and value this precious commodity.
On May 20th, we will see a Solar Eclipse and on June 4th, we will see the accompanying Lunar Eclipse.
By late September, Uranus and Pluto are in square (at 90-degree angles) to each other. This symbolizes upheaval and change, which may foreshadow major political developments and shifting alliances. With the important Presidential election in November of 2012, how will the September planetary activity affect the outcome?
One very significant occurrence that will happen on December 21, 2012, at 11:11 p.m., is that for the first time in 26,000 years, the Sun will be aligned with the center of the Milky Way. How will the energy that streams to Earth from the Milky Way affect us? We will just have to be patient and wait to see what the affects of this powerful energy will have on us all.
What about the old Mayan Calendar ending in December of 2012? Is it really an indicator of the apocalypse? There is much discussion on the significance of this event that will take place on December 21, 2012. Basically, this date marks the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar.
However, most professional scholars dismiss all the apocalyptic predictions, pointing out that no doomsday predictions exist in extant ancient Mayan accounts. And as was noted earlier, many scholars believe the calendar’s ending actually will mark the beginning of a positive period of new-found enlightenment.
Finally, towards the end of the year, we will see another set of eclipses. The Winter Solstice on December 21, 2012, may be a period of healing and compassion, resulting in a positive end to a very dramatic year. At least that’s what we can whole-heartedly hope for with the end of the New Year.
