Are you feeling it? What? …The Galactic Alignment of course. Depending on who you are listing to this is either an event of monumental significance or simply another galactic event which will pass with many being unaware. NASA is down playing the significance of this event as no more important than an eclipse or meteor shower. While others namely the Mayans, Hopi, and Peruvians are predicting major changes on the order of magnetic pole shifts, and other earthly changes. (Interesting video on this topic)
The most important aspect of this shift is it correlates to the end of the zodiac cycle and the beginning of a new one. We are actually between two ages and thus the conflict of different energies is “stirring the pot” so to speak. The Age of Pisces is ending and the Age of Aquarius is beginning. Precise dates have not been agreed upon so we will use a range of dates and let the individual decide for themselves. Suffice it to say we will be definitely in the Age of Aquarius by 2060, although Dec, 21 2012 is very significant as a tipping point in the shift.
Here is an explanation of the galactic alignment which I feel describes it very well. Written by John Major Jenkins
“It is important to define what the Galactic Alignment is in precise astronomical terms. The Galactic Alignment is the alignment of the December solstice sun with the Galactic equator. This alignment occurs as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. Precession is caused by the earth wobbling very slowly on its axis and shifts the position of the equinoxes and solstices one degree every 71.5 years. Because the sun is one-half of a degree wide, it will take the December solstice sun 36 years to precess through the Galactic equator. The precise alignment of the solstice point (the precise center-point of the body of the sun as viewed from earth) with the Galactic equator was calculated to occur in 1998 (Jean Meeus, Mathematical Astronomy Morsels, 1997). Thus, the Galactic Alignment “zone” is 1998 +/- 18 years = 1980 – 2016. This is “era-2012.” This Galactic Alignment occurs only once every 26,000 years, and was what the ancient Maya were pointing to with the 2012 end-date of their Long Count calendar.
Position A is where the December solstice sun was in relation to the Milky Way some 3,000 years ago. Position B is 1,500 years ago. And position C is “era-2012″, when the December solstice sun has converged, as a result of the precession of the equinoxes, with the exact center-line of the Milky Way (the Galactic equator). Notice that the place of alignment is where the ‘nuclear bulge’ of the Galactic Center is located.” (Jenkins 2012)
The event is like a border zone between two countries of which we are passing from one to another. We are swimming the Rio Grande, coming into the promise land. The meaning of this is up to the individual, however on a grander scale the opportunity is for a realization of Peace on Earth and Good Will to Man. Some may consider it Heaven on Earth or an Enlightened Age. The next 26,000 year cycle is beginning, so say good-bye to Pisces and hello Aquarius!
