In the ruins of an ancient city, somehow missed by previous archaeologists, treasure hunters, and looters, deep in the Guatemalan rainforest, a whole room was discovered – untouched by anyone – a room of incredibly bright Maya artwork and walls of calculations. . . that extend what is on the Sun Stone far into the future.
Never mind anyone’s notion of an apocalypse on 12-21-12, this earlier and more extensive version of the Mayan Calendar is proof positive that any end-date exceeds any sense of timing our scientists and visionaries can conjure.
One of those interpreting this amazing find is David Stuart, archaeologist with the University of Texas:
“The Mayan Calendar is going to keep going for billions, trillions, octillions of years into the future. Numbers we can’t even wrap our heads around.” As an example, one of the dates that has been deciphered extends the Calendar to 8,000 years into the future. And, that’s just for starters.
The end-date of 12-21-12 has always been more a creation of archaeologists, historians, keepers of Mayan lore and wisdom – a date based mostly on interpretation, not fact. The actual date was never found until a few years ago when it was discovered on the back of a door in a ruined city, and again more recently when it was noticed as part of stair carvings that recorded key dates during a ruler’s reign.
The Mayan Sun Stone, what we regard as their main Calendar, is a treasure, to be sure, that records the passage of the world’s evolutionary history in ways no modern has been able toduplicate. Gazing at the newest find, we can’t help but be awestruck. The astronomer-priests of Maya were even far more brilliant than anyone knew. No modern mind, whether scientist or shaman, can fully comprehend what they did – a gift to the world that will keep on giving longer than records survive.
SOME ASTROLOGICAL TIMELINES
The Mayan Calendar’s supposed ending has inspired a flood of books and papers about many levels and types to its revelations that, as far as I am concerned, are far more interesting than the notion of an end-date. Ideas like the alchemy of nine dimensions and the collapse of time suggest that what the astronomer-priests were really trying to record and pass on – was a device to be used for tracking the development of consciousness on the earthplane. Studied in that light, the Mayan Calendar is and remains a relevant and exciting guide.
The Great Shifting that is now occurring (happens every 25,920 years) is massive, and is being felt by everyone alive. To give you a brief heads up on the initial part of this Shift, here are a few astrological dates and points to think about, that may prove helpful to you:
• 1840s: New Thought Movement began with the spiritual trends that culminate in 2024 (a 184-year phase of spiritual discovery and holistic development).
• 2006: Mars goes retrograde in U.S. birth chart for the first time in our history as a nation. U.S. energy, power, and influence wanes – off-stride – for 70 years.
• 2009 to 2023: Pluto in Capricorn - time of practicality, 3 R’s – reduce/reuse/recycle, shift of wealth, rethink growth, corrupt politicians, corporate imperialism, global contraction, return to fundamentals, wealth excesses, possible class war, food and water shortages.
• 2010 to 2019: Uranus in Aries - courage, decision time – do we head toward The Third Industrial Revolution or a debt crisis, is Arab spring becoming Arab fall, life/death challenges, authority conflicts, rise in shootings, daring innovations and invention, climate change.
• 2010 to 2019: Uranus/Pluto in conflict (square) seven times during the following months:
June 2012 September 2012
May 2013 November 2013
April 2014 December 2014
This timeframe is one of meltdown, collapse of major institutions. The energy is comparable to what set up the American Revolution (1755-1758), and Columbus/Europeans colonizing the Western Hemisphere (1493-1500). Depression or rebirth.

Remember, August of any year is a time when people are more apt to go war, argue, or hurt each other. Maybe it’s the heat. Although vacations and entertainment are on the docket and people actually prefer the beach and light reading, backyard barbeques, fun with the family, tempers can flare. That’s what catches us – at a time of relaxation and renewal – we can become demanding and stubborn. Watch it.
THE REAL MEANING OF THE GOD PARTICLE
During the first week of July, 2012, the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced that the Hadron Collider had uncovered evidence that a new elementary particle exists, predicted by both Satyendra Nath Bose of India and Peter Ware Higgs of England. Dubed the “God Particle,” this tiny spit of a thing is apparently that phase/shift particle or field where light becomes dense enough to take on mass and weight – the initial building block of matter.
This is exciting, but what is almost over-powering is the rest of the story.
The discovery reveals that the universe is not based on pairs (polarity) but on fours (quadruples) – each with slightly different characteristics. This means. . . that the many-worlds concept is real. . . what was once just as idea may in fact be a reality of parallel worlds, other universes, different dimensions, unique arrangements of time, space, embodiment. . . all elements of a hidden order.
Our mystics were right in one sense – existence is not quite what is seems and never was. They were off the mark in another – basing core teachings on polarities instead of giving equal focus to the cube and the power of quadruples (cubbing energy). Herein may lie one of Creation’s greatest secrets.
None of this denies the reality of our lives. Rather, it invites us to open our minds and hearts a little wider. We are not defined by our philosophies, religions, or political leanings. We are much more than that and so is anything we can imagine.
