Know All About December 2012 !!

Will It Be The End Of Times? Just what does December 21, 2012 mean to us? Is the end date of the Mayan calendar really the start of an approaching apocalypse, or even a spiritual rebirth? How much of what we're hearing is science and how much is superstition? This blog provides a balanced look at the 2012 phenomenon with leading researchers, writers and scientists in the field explaining exactly what this date means, why it's important, and what we should expect.

Most of us are not archaeologists or astronomers, anthropologists or astrologers. Yet the majority of what is written about one of the most exciting and relevant subjects of our day - the approaching Winter Solstice 2012 end-date of the Mayan Calendar - appears in words aimed at specialists and couched in language that can be hard to read.

You may be hearing a lot about the Mayans, their calendars, hieroglyphs and mysterious temples scattered throughout the jungles of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras. Why is there so much talk about the "end of the Mayan calendar" and what does it mean? Is there something significant we should know about the Winter Solstice date of December 21, 2012? How were the Mayans able to track long periods of time and why would they want to? Why should we care about the Mayans today? Is there anything we can learn from them? I'll begin by sharing how my own interest in the subject developed and go on from there.


What is the Mayan Calendar 2012 connection?

In conversations I’ve had with Maya descendants living in Guatemala we often spoke of the Mayan Calendar and the year 2012.

First off I will tell you much of what was discussed revolves around a time period, not a specific date. The time period is the 6 month period between the Spring and Fall equinoxes. After that period comes the Winter Solstice on December 21 2012.

The Maya had numerous calendars with which they tracked the movements of the planets (Venus, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter) and the rotation of the Earth around the Sun. Two of these Mayan calendars are those which draw our attention to 12/21/2012.

The Mayan calendar is not actually a single calendar that westerners are used to referencing today.  It is actually a complex system of multiple calendars used in conjunction.  Two calendars used in conjunction are the Tzolk’in and the Haab.  The Tzolk’in calendar consists of  260 days.  The Haab consists of 365 days.  The combined use of these calendars creates a cycle of 52 Haabs (52 years) and is referred to as the Calendar Round.  Small cycles of 13 days (Trecena) and 20 days (veintena) exist as well.

Another calendar used to track longer periods of time is referred to as the Long Count.  This calendar is used to track dates relative to each other on a linear scale and utilizes a numeric decimal system to record dates.  For example, the Mayan date for December 21, 2012 is  The long count cycle referred to as the “Great Cycle” lasts for 5,125.36 years.  Correlating that to the Gregorian calendar used by most people in the world today, the starting date of the current long count cycle is August 11, 3,114 B.C.

Another interesting cycle is the precession of the equinoxes lasting approximately 26,000 years.  The long count of 5,125 years is 1/5 of that cycle.  December 21, 2012 marks the end of the Long Count and Precession Cycle.  A fascinating astronomical occurrence will take place that day.  The sun will be seen in a conjunction with the crossing point of the galactic equator and the ecliptic which is referred by the Mayans as the Sacred Tree.  Since this is due to take place on the winter solstice, this should provide clear evidence that the proper end day of the Mayan calendar is December 21, 2012.  Some say December 22,nd, 23rd or even other dates.  However, the solstice was an important day to the Mayans and it is logical to think that they would conclude their calendar cycle on this day, coupled with the fact of the rare astronomical occurrence set to take place that day.

Overall, the Mayan calendar system is amazing and complex.  It is the most accurate calendar system ever invented by anyone.  The complexities go far beyond my capabilities to explain so I have listed links below to serve as excellent resources of information.

The Maya Tzolkin Calendar and the Maya Long Count Calendar both contain references many today believe point to the year 2012. The sacred Tzolkin calendar represents a 260 day period that uses 20 days rotating in conjunction with 13 tones which create the foundation of the calendar. The day 4 Ahua (aka: Ajaw - the day name can vary depending on which Mayan dialect is used) is a special day as it is always on this day during which the Baktun periods begin (the 5,124 year periods). Baktun periods however are represented in the Long Count Calendar. Baktuns are the fifth placemark in the Long Count and the upcoming date in 2012 marks the movement from 12 to 13 (

Tortuguero is a Maya ruin site in southern Mexico that contains a stone carving (Monument 6) with the Dec. 21, 2012 date represented in the Tzolkin calendar. The carving references 4 Ahua (the beginning date within the Tzolkin and Long Count calendars) and the remaining visible glyphs are interpreted as referecing an event occuring on the beginning date upon which the diety will descend.

There is a common belief that the calendar holds a prophecy that the world will end in 2012. To understand what is likely to happen to Earth and its people, you will need to remain calm and try to follow the facts. It's not as simple as some people describe. It requires an understanding of some fairly complicated science, but I think I can explain this in a way that you will easily understand.

The Mayan civilization predicted that on December 21, 2012 something will happen to the world we know. Something will happen that will change our civilization, value systems and the way we know human civilization forever.

What does that means? What did the Mayan see through their spiritual wisdom?

According to scientists and technologists something strange is happening behind the scene. The terrestrial and solar polar reversal peaks are coming within three weeks of that day, December 21, 2012. Innumerable UFOs are scouting our skies regularly and increasing as we approach that day. The tectonic plate shifts, underwater volcanoes, earthquakes, landslides and Tsunamis are increasing at rates never seen before. The solar flares are increasing. The earth’s magnetosphere and ionosphere are experiencing strange disturbances. The numbers of typhoons and cyclones have increased many folds. The number of floods and droughts has increased beyond imaginations in the last ten years.

Scientists who look beyond conventional science point out that that the Hyperspace that contain our Universe is also showing signs that something strange is happening in our universe. The multidimensional time research is showing that a parallel universe may be predicting strange effects.

According to some scientists it is possible that another Universe is slowly starting to claim a spatial dimension in our physical Universe. It is also possible that we will face major calamities because of the polar reversal in the Sun and in Earth. If that happens, it is possible that the hyperspace has to adjust the suction force known as gravity and Electromagnetic force fields to keep the earth and the solar system intact.

The biggest clue to what will happen comes from astrophysicists. There is a big possibility that the simultaneous polar reversal in earth and sun will throw the solar system out of whack. That will cause massive upheaval in the earth. At that point of time, the extraterrestrials will officially show up and put “cosmic seat belts” around us as they apply the superpower of the Hyperspace to bring the solar system back to what it is today.

According to think tanks, this has happened before. The extraterrestrials take care of the earth and the solar system whenever the solar system faces challenges like that.

According to the prophecies and culture of ancient Maya, part of what scholars call Mesoamerica, Earthquakes, pestilence and revolution will bring humanity to its knees and astronomy predicts some major cosmic developments for December 21, 2012, including, perhaps, the end of the world as we now know it, as some people believe. Mayan calendars are still used by a few cultures in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, and El Salvador and are said to be the most accurate ones in existence. They date the solar year accurately within minutes, taking account of the cycles of sun, moon, Venus, and other cosmic bodies and only have to add one "leap day" after 380,000 years. Mayan civilization was quite advanced, possessing technology that modern man is still trying to comprehend.

If there is something that many of the major religions have in common then it must be on December 2012 Doomsday predictions. The date December 21st, 2012 A.D. ( in the Long Count), represents an extremely close conjunction of the Winter Solstice Sun with the crossing point of the Galactic Equator (Equator of the Milky Way) and the Ecliptic (path of the Sun), what that ancient Maya recognized as the Sacred Tree.

Almost every major religious text has got references to this being the time when major changes could occur in our planet. Among all the references, perhaps the most significant and well known is the prediction of December 2012 Doomsday by the Mayan Calendar. This is an event that has been coming to resonance very slowly over thousands and thousands of years. It will come to resolution at exactly 11:11 am GMT. According to the world will enter a new age on the particular date. With the Mayans civilization being extremely knowledgeable in both astronomy and mathematics, the prediction has generated lot of interest around the world. .

 Nowadays this question is asked by the people in the public forums and blogs. What is the theory behind December 2012 Doomsday? People are getting confused about the whole matter and would like to know about this topic. The information given in the sites are not sufficient to satisfy their doubts regarding the whole concept. Is there really an end to life on Earth? Is there really a day predicted in the Mayan calendar when life on this planet will be wiped out? What scientific data is present to prove this matter? There are many questions which are present in the people’s mind regarding this latest news given by the astronomers. You have come across the right piece of literature as here you can find all the answers to your questions. December 2012 doomsday is not a myth and has been postulated 5000 years before in the I-Ching prophecies.

The next few years as December 21 2012 approaches, assuming Earth and life on Earth makes it that far, are absolutely crucial and the most important years that humanity has confronted for many millennia, or will again for many millennia more. Its a date that more and more people are becoming aware of, we will be examining in great detail every aspect its meaning and significance of this iconic date, and associated events, not the least of which is the Galactic Alignment of December 21 2012 which forms the basis of their Long Count Calendar, and of the many changes that are occuring and will continue to occur as the transition of the ages progresses, and of the extraordinary ancient race that brought us the 21 December 2012 date in their legacy, the Maya.
