Esoteric Astrology for the week December 20-26, 2012
The long awaited time has arrived — Dec. 21, 2012 — the end of a unit of time (k’atun) in the Mayan calendar. Initiated by three new evolutionary cycles the Aquarian Age begins in earnest.
The Sun enters Capricorn 3:12 a.m. Pacific time. It’s Winter Solstice (northern latitudes), longest night of darkness. After a three-day respite at the Tropic of Capricorn the Sun’s rays turn northward. At midnight, Christmas morning, the new light (holy child’s birth, new state of consciousness) shines forth. Virgo, mother and pregnant Madonna (constellation) shines overhead in the night sky.
For esotericists worldwide, Sun entering Capricorn begins Festival Week of the New Group of World Servers (Dec. 21 to 28 full moon). Occurring once every seven years, the Festival this year (2012) occurs at the Mayan calendar’s ending. This is no mistake. In the sky an important astrological alignment occurs. Great spiritual forces, from a vast and distant constellation, will “overshadow” Capricorn (sign of Initiation) and stream information into the Earth. The past comes to a close, inaugurating all that is new (new archetypes, new rhythms, new age).
Esotericists are gathering in groups — meeting, studying, meditating and praying together, creating a “chalice of receptivity” as revelations (information) concerning the next seven years are impressed upon all servers’ hearts and minds. Humanity is invited. (Read more at www.nightlightnews.com for local events around the world, two pyramids being erected [Santa Cruz & Taos], times of Impact & meditations).
