  • Age of Aquarius Explained * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    Age of Aquarius portends for the Earth The Meaning Of The Age of Aquarius During the Age of Aquarius the dominant paradigm is that of the Water Bearer As the sign of Aquarius is ruled by both Uranus and to a lesser degree Saturn so Aquarian Uranian and Saturnian qualities will determine the direction that the Earth will take over the next 2 millennia Qualities of Aquarius Aquarius is all about making the world a better place Having a strong social conscience combined with a innovative visionary intelligence Aquarius can really make it happen too Aquarius is compassionate and caring but also eccentric and unbound by convention She values progress and technologies that can revolutionize the world The Struggle Between Saturn and Uranus Saturn was the ancient ruler of Aquarius Uranus is the modern and future ruler They are still engaged in some battle over turf Saturn even in its good qualities is somewhat grim Saturn is sensible stern strict grave formal and forbidding Saturn is all about rules authority propriety Saturn values discipline self and other caution and prudence Uranus symbolises a rebellious spirit individualistic unwilling to accept rules and limitations Uranus energy is passionate spontaneous tempestuous brilliant innovative and revolutionary Uranus is not interested in outside authority propriety or imposed customs Uranus is like the rebellious teenager not willing to blindly accept his parents rules or beliefs determined to find his own truth to make his own way You can see where some of the conflicting viewpoints of the late 20th century came from While it seems at first glance that Saturn and Uranus are completely opposing forces and in many ways they are it is also worth noting that without some of the stabilizing self control and respect from Saturn Uranus can t achieve the best of his potential How This Influences The Age of Aquarius Here s a list of some of the qualities that Aquarian Age that come from these 3 influences idealism solidarity and fellowship kindness and compassion philanthropy and altruism spiritual awareness revelation of Truth equality democracy freedom peace love equanimity modernisation rebels and rebellion nonconformity perseverance computerization ying How will this affect the world That s the great bit What to expect in the Age of Aquarius All these qualities paint a picture of the kind of world we are becoming In the Aquarian age we could expect to see International collaboration a sense of solidarity and unity that crosses all boundaries In fact it s likely that the boundaries themselves may vanish seen at last for the imaginary divisions that they really are We can create real governmental representation a true democracy that really cares for the needs of the people And not just for the short term but in consideration of all those who will follow after us As the very belief in divisions and separations falls away we regain our membership in the fellowship of this planet We see ourselves once again as siblings to all creatures and servants

  • 2012 and Galactic Alignment * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    Galactic Alignment is important Farthest From The Light In this 26 000 year cycle the Earth has travelled to the farthest point from the centre of the galaxy In astrological and spiritual terms we are in the depths of darkness as distant from the Divine Light Source as we can get On the plus side at the very depths of winter is when we turn back towards the Light And that s what the Galactic Alignment is about We ve hit bottom Now we re on our way back Home Shift Of Ages There is no doubt that the Galactic Alignment is a time of change just as when the Earth turns at the Winter Solstice from winter toward spring Only on a much vaster scale It is a massive shift a Shift of Ages millennia long rather than a shift of seasons of only months This is reinforced by the conclusion of the Mayan Great Cycle the 5 125 year World Age The coinciding of two Shifts of Ages 5 125 years and 26 000 years long especially with the additional shift of the seasons from the darkest nadir of winter at Dec 21 ensures that something major is in the works And what it all adds up to is a shift from a metaphorical dark winter to a new bright spring for the Earth Galactic Winter What might a Galactic Winter be like What if we have been living it for most of what we could consider human history We would not even know there was anything else Like the proverbial fish who can t understand water because it s never been without it we can t really know what humanity could be in a Galactic Summer because we ve never seen or even heard of another way A Galactic Winter might well be a time of Struggling to survive against the odds Expanding our inner resources Withdrawal from the outer life of spiritual reality Development of the sense of individuation self ego mind logic rationalisation Being in exile from the court of the Divine In fact we do know that there was a glacial age then a period where ice expands over the Earth These glacial ages happen regularly however on 40 000 and 100 000 year time scales so there s no evidence that Galactic Winters bring ice to the Earth My point is that there may be an energetic winter a time of retreat into mind self home and survival mode And the new Galactic Alignment signals the beginning of Galactic Spring Galactic Alignment in 2012 How will the current Galactic Alignment affect what will happen in 2012 No one can say for sure This is an event that has not happened within recorded history However I have read so far unsubstantiated that the Egyptians taught that every quarter circle of the Sun around the zodiac affected humans in a different way spurring humanity s spiritual development Let s look at human evolution in terms

  • Kali Yuga: The Indian 2012 Predictions * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    into the real nature of the Kali Yuga The Benefits of the Kali Yuga The past 5 centuries are not merely wanton evil and destruction but destruction as part of a grander purpose In this case to wake up the masses of humanity to spiritual Truth In other words we are all called to overcome evil the evil within our lower selves and the evil within our institutions and societies So the most cynical ask if the Kali Yuga isn t bad why do we want it to end Well open heart surgery isn t bad either But no one wants to endure it for millennia We have suffered what there is to suffer We have experienced the unendurable pain that has forced us to grow When we have learnt all there is to learn from the pain we can go on with deep relief and gratitude to reap the rewards of our struggles and enjoy our well earned peace Kali Yuga and the Karmic Fast Track One thing that happens during the Age of Kali is that the time delay between cause and effect is drastically reduced In previous millennia an action in one lifetime might not create a result until the next But today the results are coming so fast it s like Instant Karma Just add action Not only actions are generating immediate results but thoughts and emotions are too It s as if the power of your mind and hands has increased a thousand fold This quick turn around time is part of why we are seeing so much information on manifesting your reality these days We are fine tuning our awareness of the process as we can see very quickly what works and what doesn t This Instant Karma has a very valuable consequence Instant Enlightenment The Age of Kali while being defined by the absence of virtually any positive qualities has one inestimable gift that no other Yuga can offer It is easier to reach enlightenment with little time and effort than in any other era Spiritual writers have commented on this For instance John Gray notes in his book How to Get What You Want and Want What You Have how spiritual evolution is on a fast track The most amazing thing about learning meditation at this time in history is how simple it is In the past the process was much more difficult People did not immediately experience the pleasing current of energy Meditation was tedious and boring and most students gave up Teachers would often make you wait for a long time before teaching you Meditation was only for the most committed and advanced students Today people I meet within a few minutes of discussing the value of meditation will begin to draw out that energy which indicates that they are ready This is not the way it was 25 years ago or even 5 years ago The world is quickly changing It s funny how the worst of times can

  • 2012 Transition -- Entering A New Paradigm * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    come around again in their time What s coming around next is something called The Shift of Ages when not one but two major time cycles are concluding and beginning again It s also significant that we are entering into the Age of Aquarius at this time This tells us what kind of a World Age we can expect The 2012 Transition is the process of shifting from one World Age to the next from the old beliefs to the new paradigm The status quo is being dismantled The very foundations of the past are shaken to their roots and the many massive earthquakes occurring these days are both a sign and a symbol of it Transitions Are Processes Not Events It may be hard to see the 2012 Transition in action yet depending on where you re looking There are two main reasons for this The news for example being a bastion of the status quo is still playing the Old Paradigm When you watch the news the message is business as usual Even though the news stations only report the selected things that support this perspective they make it seem like that s all there is They make us believe that the news is real and everything else isn t A second factor is the volume of the resistance Many people and organisations are strenuously resisting the passing of the Old Paradigm and they are screaming bloody murder Just because they re yelling so much louder it makes it seem as if there are more of them Even as if they are the majority They wish But look in another direction and you can see massive changes that are part of this 2012 Transition Worldwide grassroots movements for peace and true democracy Changes in how we perceive our effect on the environment Compassion based movements in every aspect of life Everyday people devoted to meditation yoga and spiritual practices And many more examples Despite the fact that it s easy to overlook the changes if you really want to the 2012 Transition is well underway Evolution In Action I think one of the most critical ways we can see this in the world around us is the Dissolution of the Forms of Force and Power Over You can watch that happening real time right under the thumbs of the Power Elite In a previous stage of the evolution of consciousness power was being focused and concentrated in the hands of a few Is this ever true We have a tiny percentage of people getting ever more unimaginably wealthy money is power in this world while an ever greater majority become ever more poor As horrific as this has been it s also been a necessary part of the journey It has led us up to the birth of a whole new way of being on the Earth the spiritual evolution of humanity Thank the Goddess it s also already over It just hasn t gotten through the last

  • 2012 and The Mayan Calendar * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    ll resist the temptation for now If you want to understand a bit more about the Mayan Calendar please read on Basics of the Mayan Calendar The Mayan civilisation began in about 2000 BCE and reached its peak around 250 CE Common Era During this time they scrutinised the skies The stars especially Venus technically a planet but they probably didn t know that had an intense fascination for them as did the cyclical progress of time In fact the Mayans were aware of the journey of the solar system They realised and charted the periodic movement of the whole solar system around the galactic core just as the planets orbit the sun And they found that our orbit around the galaxy was elliptical sometimes we are closer to the centre of the galaxy and sometimes we are farther away In fact the Mayans had such a precise understanding of the movement of the cosmos that we are just catching up to them now The Mayans actually used different calendars for different purposes The one of interest to us in regards to 2012 is their Long Count Calendar That s what we ll be referring to in this website The Long Count Calendar The structure of the Long Count Calendar is like a stacking pyramid or ziggurat of 9 blocks of time Each step up the ziggurat represents a block of time that is 20 smaller than the one below Each of the nine blocks or Cycles is divided into 13 equal sections 7 days and 6 nights with their own characteristic purposes The interesting thing is that it s not only the Mayan Calendar that used this pattern of time The Sumerians Mesopotamians and ancient Vedics of India from whose writing developed Hinduism Buddhism Sufism and Taoism all used the same pattern of 9 levels divided into 13 subsections It seems to be hinted at in the Biblical Old Testament as well as God took 7 days and presumably the 6 nights between them to create the world referring to the 1st Cycle The Nine Cycles of Time Ages According to the Mayan Calendar First Age The Cellular Cycle Began 16 4 billion years ago with the creation of the universe in the Big Birth Duration of Days and Nights Well over 1 billion years each Primary Mode Action and reaction the laws of physics Evolution Creation of matter and of living cells Events Light appears in the Universe time and space are born The birth of Consciousness From nothingness through inanimate rock and matter consciousness evolves to the interdependency of organelles as collaborative life forms single celled organisms Second Age The Mammalian Cycle Began 840 million years ago Duration of Days and Nights over 63 million years each Primary Mode Stimulus Response Evolution Live births Events Complex life evolves to the first animals the brain develops herds and flocks and other non individualised groups form Third Age The Family Cycle Began 41 million years ago Duration of Days

  • December 21 2012: The Great Date Debate * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    one more sign that Wicca is The True Religion totally kidding The Transition Point may be Samhain of 2011 rather than Yule of 2012 Why the uncertainty The Mayan Calendar was obviously based on a different system than the current Gregorian calendar Therefore it had to be translated to give us a date that make sense to modern English speakers After all 13 Ahau in the tzolkin count or 13 0 0 0 0 as the Mayans would call it just isn t very helpful to most of us Is It A Bird Is It A Plane We re working with the Gregorian Calendar and in order to know what day 13 0 0 0 0 would be in our calendar we have to find some point of correlation between the two like some event the Mayans recorded that we also know of Not so easy Now we have to translate their language as well For example the event originally used to sync the two calendars was the appearance in the night sky of Chak Ek This was assumed to be Venus which was very important to the Mayans However some later studies believe it to be a meteor which throws the whole schedule off Because of this translation from one calendar system to another there is some ambiguity So while most researchers agree that December 21 2012 is the ending date of the cycle there are solid reasons to believe that the ending date could be a bit earlier October 28 2011 to be exact Many of the foremost Mayan Calendar experts believe this is the actual prophecied date It s Only An Eyeblink Difference Maybe 14 months seems like a big difference to us but when you consider the scale of the Mayan Calendars one of which begins with the Big Birth of the universe what s a year here or there Even in terms of the start of the calendar about 5000 years ago 14 months is but a mere blip Granted as we will be living through the period we could wish for some pinpoint accuracy In any case as I ve said before the Transition is a process not an open and shut door I doubt we ll notice a whole lot of difference between the two dates But for the purposes of these articles we ll continue to go with the most well known and accepted date of December 21 2012 Why The Disagreement Doesn t Matter Regardless of astronomy and mathematics something big is going on We re heading toward a transformation of massive proportion and it s coming soon In fact it s already started The Transformation is well underway It s not like a light bulb switching on in a dark room It s a process away from the logical individualistic materialistic mind to the intuitive unified spiritual Heart If you ve been paying attention you have already seen lots of evidence of this shift The rise of Wicca as a

  • The Hopi Prophecy Stone and the Future of the Earth * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    of growing corn life combined with the sign of a cane long life reasserts humanity s continuity The last circle is said to be the final calamity the purification of evil from the face of the Earth At the end of the righteous path we find the Creator waiting for us again the beginning and the end the alpha and the omega This is the spiritual path the path of goodness and kindness Reunion with the Divine is the goal and destination of this path Humility Rather Than Arrogance I would add to this interpretation that the true path is the humble path the one closest to the Earth and nature grounded In this image it is the path that is closest to the Creator I believe the upper path being the false trail shows that the path of domination of power control of seeking to be superior over others is definitely a wrong turn And that a way of living in balance and respect with nature is part of the good path Something Native Americans have warned Europeans from the beginning This may be another reason Wicca and Paganism are increasing in popularity as more people leave the wicked path behind I think it is also not coincidence that the sign of the corn is used Life could have been signified by the cane alone But it is a growing plant that indicates the path of goodness and the fruit of that path Nature is the good path The Path of Wickedness Although here I have drawn in the heads of the figures the Elders say that the figures on the Hopi Prophecy Stone originally had no heads I ve indicated this with the heads not joined to the bodies This could indicate that those following the path of wickedness are not choosing wisely That would seem to be evident as we can now see the inevitable result of small personal wickednesses such as greed self interest insecurity animosity etc Even more visible are the growing results of these violence war domination sacrificing of others and the future for personal gain etc According to Martineau however it signals that death must come of following the wicked path Perhaps both meanings would apply The zigzag path seems to indicate that the way of wickedness is irresolute and crooked It reminds me of politicians promising first one thing and then the opposite depending on whatever people want to hear Being guided by greed control and fear the Path must veer hither and yon according to the needs of the moment By contrast the path of truth is always aimed at the Divine and does not waver in momentary crises Notice that before the third calamity the corn symbol touches the top line This shows that people on the path of wickedness can change direction at that point and rejoin the path of goodness After that point it is too late for humanity s careless wickedness brings us to a dead end

  • Find Out What Will Happen in 2012 * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    who claims to the contrary no one can know for certain what will happen in 2012 or any other time The future isn t written yet The one thing that we can know for a fact is that things cannot keep going the way they are Humanity has pushed the world and thus itself to the edge of extinction And as the saying goes If we don t change the way we re headed we re going to get where we re going Society must change People must change Luckily it does seem that it s happening It Would Be Wise To Be Prepared Lacking any guarantees about what will happen in 2012 it seems wise to prepare for a time when we may not be able to depend upon outside sources of water electricity food heat This is common sense Most cities now advocate a preparedness kit anyway for dealing with natural disasters and other unforeseen problems It s like making a fire safety plan Consider in advance what you would do if you were cut off from ordinary services and communications including what you will do if away from home Communicate this plan with your family and make sure everyone understands their parts Put aside a store of basic survival gear weather protection water in portable containers water purifying tablets portable food supplies including for your pets matches or lighter medications change of clothes including sturdy shoes valuables cash including change for pay phones phone numbers flashlight and spare batteries or pump kind radio and spare batteries or winding kind important documents first aid kit space blanket for each member of the family hand washing towelettes etc This is just the start of a really solid preparedness kit You may even wish to be somewhere you consider more safe and sustainable around December 21 2012 Consider however that if worse came to worst no one out there has enough supplies for all those who might suddenly show up on their door Be prepared to work hard to help out and bring enough that you can contribute to everyone s benefit There are plenty of resources online to help you plan for disasters in general Disaster Assistance gov has helpful information though geared to the USA specifically Opens in new window Please understand that I am NOT advocating a survivalist mentality complete with bomb shelters and semi automatic weapons That s the old paradigm I don t think it stands a chance of succeeding And if it does I d rather not be here to witness it thank you anyway There is a vast difference between survivalist mentality and preparing for trouble that can come anyway any time while holding the intention to be willing to help others Remember what will happen is 2012 will very much depend on how open our hearts will be The end of the world probably won t come at 11 11 a m December 21 2012 but with so much in flux it
