Mayan Forecast 2012: OMG, The Mayans Were Right! (5/20/12)
In my first installment of this feature, I outlined what I considered the most significant aspect of the December 21, 2012, sunrise chart for Chichen Itza, Mexico: its exact conjunction between the Ascendant, Sun, Juno and Galactic Center, symbolizing the sacred marriage of masculine and feminine principles and the subsequent birth of a new, awakened version of humanity. Two weeks later, I highlighted another very important feature of the 2012 chart: A Finger of Fate (Yod) formation involving Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter, with Venus at its activation point, symbolizing the revolutionary call for deep transformation and spiritual liberation.
The picture that emerges when we combine the basic energy of this powerful Finger of Fate configuration with the template of sacred marriage and the birth of a new species, is one in which such a marriage and rebirth will be accomplished out of the cleansing fires of a heart-centered, global revolution in consciousness and socio/political structures.
OMG, The Mayans Were Right! (5/20/12)
By Tara McKinney
On February 3, 2012, mystical Neptune moved into its home constellation of Pisces, where it will remain until 2026. As this occurred, we entered a phase similar to the Renaissance, with its emphasis on transcendence and rebirth through artistic expression, in particular, in its most sublime and esoteric forms. Then on April 15, 2012, the fixed star Regulus, aka “The Heart of the Lion,” shifted from the constellation Leo, the sign of the kingly Patriarch (where it has been for over 2,000 years), into the constellation Virgo, the sign of the Virgin, or inviolate Feminine. Finally, on June 5, 2012, in a rare Transit of Venus, the planet associated with artistic expression and the Goddess of Love, will move across the face of the Sun, Her energies illuminated, enhanced and celebrated, like an Academy Award winning actress in her prime, spotlighted at center stage, taking her bows and bestowing her many blessings upon her adoring fans.
These three major celestial events, happening in close proximity in 2012, have inspired a new, tongue-in-cheeky musical, “OMG, The Mayans Were Right! A Post-Apocalyptic Time Travel Musical Evening,” which will premier on the evening of May 26, 2012, here in New Orleans at the United Astrological Conference. According to OMG’s creator, the astronomical events described above, plus “the right mix of ingenious music” during the performance on May 26th, will cause “a rip in the fabric of space-time.” Furthermore, “during such a ‘temporal vortex,’ individuals having lived in different eras of Earth’s history will be able to move back and forth in time to briefly encounter each other.”
All kidding aside (or perhaps he’s not kidding?), we most definitely do live in extraordinary times, as measured by whatever criteria one might wish to apply, including astrological. For example, this Sunday, May 20th (at 4:47 p.m. PDT), we will cross the threshold into an extraordinarily potent and transformative New Moon phase. It’s exceptional for several reasons: 1) It happens to fall in the early degrees of Taurus (sidereal), where it is exalted; 2) This phase coincides with a Venus retrograde cycles in Taurus (which Venus rules), encompassing Venus’ Transit of the Sun on June 5th; and, 3) The New Moon coincides exactly with a Solar Eclipse. (For more detailed information on the significance of the May 20th New Moon phase, please see my New and Full Moon Forecast for 5/20/2012 in the Astrology section.)
The question under consideration in this feature is: How does this New Moon/Solar Eclipse impact the Chichen Itza chart for December 21, 2012, thereby helping to fulfill Mayan prophecy? The New Moon and Sun, exactly conjunct on May 20th at 6+ degrees Taurus (sidereal), also happen to be conjunct the South Node of the Moon at 11+ degrees Taurus and directly opposing the North Node of the Moon at 11+ degrees Scorpio. The Activation Point axis for the Finger of Fate formation in the Mayan chart, shows Jupiter at 14+ degrees Taurus, with Venus in opposition at 12+ degrees Scorpio. As mentioned previously, the sacred geometry of this particular Finger of Fate symbolizes the revolutionary call for deep transformation, spiritual liberation and unconditional love. Both the New Moon and eclipsing Sun in Taurus symbolize the birth of an entirely new dimension of love on Planet Earth. The South Node/North Node axis thrown into the mix strongly suggests that positive karmic influences from our collective past, plus spirit guides and helpers, are coming to the fore at this time in order to assist us in achieving Unity Consciousness as a species.
Mayan Starglyph for 5/20/2012:
The Mayan Starglyph for the New Moon on May 20th is Chicchan (Serpent) #10. The Serpent is electrifying in its presence, representing a very high level of intelligence, plus magical powers capable of bearing potent new energies. The number ten is all about manifestation. Persons born on days with this tone have a particularly strong capacity to turn intentions and ideas into material reality, although this energy is available to anyone, on days with this number. This is also a powerful energy that carries with it great responsibility.
