The Mayan Calendar does not end in 2012 say elite archeologists and the Ancient Mayans THEMSELVES.
I TOLD YOU SO.
Sorry, my Mercury in Aries does like to harp on about this sort of thing.
But my most whacko emails (seriously) have always been when i’ve done a post saying i simply don’t believe that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012 and that the idea the Mayans felt the world would somehow end then is just crap and peeps charging around claiming to be channelling ancient Mayan kings, courtesans, scribes, astrologers, deities whatever are just doom-mongerers. Just as bad as the Jehovahs Witnesses saying only the “good” will be “saved” come the end times. Only the Mayan peeps say only the people vibrating at the right frequency. Ludicrous.
Anyway an archeologist named William Saturno (i love his name) has found a secret Ancient Mayan astrology den that sound more or less like my office now lol AND proof that no way does the Mayan Calendar end in 2012. Right? You can read about it here and also here
What is AMAZING about all this is that we are but a few weeks off the Transit of Venus – if there was one thing the Ancient Mayans adored and tracked more than anything else, it was the cycles of Venus. Next, they followed Mars, also doing its own weirding at this time. So it’s beautiful and eerie synchronicity. If were in Mesopotamia with this astro, the whole army & everyone in the city would be on high alert the first week of June, when Mars squares Venus during the Transit of Venus.
From the news articles linked to above:
“…One is a lunar table, and the other is a “ring number”—something previously known only from much later Maya books, where it was used as part of a backward calculation in establishing a base date for planetary cycles. Nearby is a sequence of numbered intervals corresponding to key calendrical and planetary cycles.
“The calculations include dates some 7,000 years in the future, adding to evidence against the idea that the Maya thought the world would end in 2012—a modern myth inspired by an ancient calendar that depicts time starting over this year.
“We keep looking for endings,” expedition leader Saturno said in a statement. “The Maya were looking for a guarantee that nothing would change. It’s an entirely different mindset.”
“Explorers chanced upon the writings while excavating a room buried under a collapsed building that was overgrown with rainforest vegetation in Xultún in the north-eastern region of Petén. Researchers who dug debris from the room found bright and vivid paintings of the king and other figures preserved on the walls, leading them to speculate the owner might have been a royal relative.
“One wall was covered with hundreds of small red and black symbols that tracked the phases of the moon, with others thought to represent the Mayan ceremonial calendar and cycles of the sun, Mars and Venus.
“This is certainly our oldest Mayan astronomical table. It’s the only one we have from the classical period. It’s also the first time we get to look inside a scribe or astronomer’s house and see the writing on the wall,” Saturno told the Guardian. More enigmatic charts on the north wall appear to represent the 365-day solar calendar, the 584-day cycle of Venus and the 780-day cycle of Mars.
“They were keen on keeping track of all planetary motions. They liked to anchor the events of their lives in cosmic terms. What comes around today will repeat again in the future and is a symbol of what happened in the distant past,” Saturno added.”
THIS has reawakened my interest in Mayan superfoods – Maca & Quinoa – they’re just genius. And a good antidote to the carbing up that is the norm with the Sun near Jupiter in Taurus, right.
