First, let’s just get something out of the way:
“Both the Hopis and Mayans recognize that we are approaching the end of a World Age… In both cases, however, the Hopi and Mayan elders do not prophesy that everything will come to an end. Rather, this is a time of transition from one World Age into another. The message they give concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. Our moving through with either resistance or acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with cataclysmic changes or gradual peace and tranquility. The same theme can be found reflected in the prophecies of many other Native American visionaries from Black Elk to Sun Bear.”

Many of us can recall about ten or so years ago, the “End of the World” time was originally calculated for 2112.
It was a much more intriguing date if you look at it. The palindrome pattern can be construed as physically illustrating, “as it was in the beginning, so it shall be in the end.” A number of factors may have influenced the change, but the most plausible and easily accepted theory is simple, down-home, good-ol’-fashioned commercialism. Armageddon sometime sells better than sex. (Anyone remember the Millennium panic?) After all, it was only recently that a private cult made international headlines by “predicting” and “preparing” for the Rapture that was to take place on May 21, 2010. They had sold thousands of pieces of merchandise, took in thousands of dollars in donations and savings, and gained hundreds of followers, whether it be out of fear or hope for freedom from the mundane, who were willing to sacrifice their lives and their livelihoods for the cause.
And we all know how that turned out…
2012 roots to a “5,” which in fact does means “change,” but, don’t let it be confused with “ending.” As it happens in this case, the principle change in question is actually focused on intimate relationships, not the Earthly condition.
In divination, especially cartomancy, it’s generally accepted that whenever Death appears, it generally means “major shift,” “change,” or “revolution.” Why we don’t associate it exclusively with ending is because with change, something ends and something begins. 2012 is a true transitional period for those seeking partnerships will have a high chance of finding it and those already in partnerships will have the flexibility to fix what needs fixing, break what needs to be broken, or bond with what needs to be bonded.
The key number here is actually the “1” in between the “2’s” because it is your own voice, your own identity, and your own sense of self that can and will determine the success of your acquiring your needs. So, even though the promise of love, companionship, and compassion will flow all around you, you’ll still need to crack down on your trust, intimacy, and commitment issues before you’re forced to do so.
Many of us forget that relationships take work and communication to be successful. And you can’t do that if you can’t walk the talk…
We’ll also be reminded that sometimes what we want may not necessarily be what we need. 2012 calls for us to take care and beware of what we ask for. We may be hopelessly in love with that person we just absolutely know is our “soul mate” or “twin flame” but that doesn’t necessarily mean our hearts know what’s best for us – particularly if that person is unavailable.
Feelings are one thing, but intent is another. You may feel a connection, but if the person on the other end of that connection is avoiding, dragging, or unwilling to manifest a relationship in a satisfactory way, you’re setting yourself up for unnecessary pain.
If you’ve been waiting, 2012 has the potential to end that wait, one way or another.
2012 says, “Focus on intent. Back up your feelings with action. If you can, bless you both. If you can’t, then it’s time to let go and enjoy your new freedom with a chance to be with someone who can.”
Marriages and domestic partnerships that have been challenged will have a sporting opportunity to overcome those challenges and finally heal, whereas those partnerships that have been hanging from a thread over a prolonged period of time may finally break.
2012 also says, “See the truth in yourself and each other. Take responsibility for your role in the condition of your relationship, for good or ill.”
Friendships, adoptions (human and otherwise) can enjoy new homes and circles. Business relations take on a much more intimate angle in sales and service, realizing that taking care of the person’s needs brings much more lasting posterity. Same will also be true as the employee starts to become more fearless in being less tolerant of hostile and underappreciated work environments, as well.
Though, 2012 may not be the “End of the World” as we have come to fantasize or fear, it very well can be the end of our own worlds as we have known it.
Nothing can change anything faster or better than Love.
Happy New Year!
