12-21-12 – Should I buy a 2013 Calendar? – ‘Galactic Alignment 2012 – 21-12-2012 Winter Solstice Conjunction With Dark Rift’
I look at it as a Galactic Y2K.
So yes I will be buying a 2013 calendar.
‘It is true that this will be the first time in almost 26,000
years that the Sun will appear to connect with part of the Dark
Rift. It is also fair to say that this lacks the excitement of
some of the false theories regarding 2012 astronomy events’.
‘There is not an alignment of all or indeed even of several
planets on 21-12-2012. Jupiter and Saturn will however be
involved in an astrological formation known as a Yod (finger of
‘The Solar system will not be any closer to the Galactic core in
2012 than on any other year, or in any way in a position which
might affect gravity levels between us and the Milky Way’s
central black hole’.
‘There is no evidence of us aligning with the infamous but
wholly mythical photon belt with a location said to be marked by
the star Alcyone. We are certainly not orbiting this star in the
Pleiades system as some 2012 writers have additionally claimed’.
‘The subject of 2012 galactic alignment, planetary alignment,
cosmic alignment and dark rift alignment all refer to an event
on December 21st 2012 when the Long Count Calendar used by the
ancient Meso-American peoples such as the Maya, Aztec, Toltec
and Olmec will end one great cycle of 13 Baktun (5125.26
‘The creators of this system were able to calculate and track
interesting cycles of nature such as solar eclipse, galactic
alignment and planetary alignments going even beyond 2012’.
‘The minds behind this system gave birth to some 24 separate
calendar systems capable of tracking both astronomical and
non-astronomical cycles within nature’.
‘The winter solstice of 2012 will occur at 11:11 GMT on of
course 21-12-2012 the same day the Long Count flips over’.
‘On that morning the sun will appear to rise into the patch of
sky we refer to as the galactic centre or nuclear bulge. It is
the location of the super-massive black hole at the centre of
rotation for the Milky Way galaxy’.
‘In itself the appearance of the sun rising here is not a
particularly unique event. The phenomena can be observed for
winter solstice dates of numerous years either side of 2012’.
‘The only interesting new aspect of this year will be the sun
appearing to just touch one part of the Dark Rift (Great Rift)
that snakes its way along the Galactic Equator’.
‘This is an area of the night sky considered important to Maya
cosmology most notably with respect to spiritual rebirth
‘It will however take some two decades or so to travel
completely through this dark region of the sky’.
‘Although commonly known as the ‘Galactic Alignment’ the correct
term for the event should really be the ‘Galactic Conjunction’.
Astronomical alignments refer to three celestial objects in
shared orientation. Astronomical Conjunction is an alignment of
two cosmic objects or bodies as seen from the Earths
