With only nine days left before the world ends, it’s almost too much to imagine that 12-12-12 also happens to be steeped in superstition, with conflicting views on what fortune it presents – both good and bad. After all, we won’t have a date like this for another 88 years. Read on..
This is what the bodymindspirit website tells us:
The Ancient Mayan calendar speaks of 12-12-2012 as the end of times as we know it, and the beginning of a new cycle of evolution for planet earth, humanity and the cosmos. Mayan elders say that the Ancients were informing the modern world to be ready for a giant transformation for the human race.
Interestingly, traditions across the world including Buddhism, Tao, Hopi and Vedic knowledge predict a ‘Golden Age’ or ‘Satyug’ in their calendars around the same period. December 2012 is being looked upon as a significant spiritual event and a momentous shift in the collective consciousness of the planet.
Ok, but I thought the Mayans were aiming for 21 December? Did they read it the wrong way around?
Details…details! Let’s press on.
@wtaljaard tells us that at 12min & 12sec past 12pm it’s the last repeat digital repeat for 100 years!
For the romantic, it can be seen as nothing more than a cool date. According to Yahoo:
A memorable day at the Dolphin Bay, followed by a candlelit dinner at Nobu and a walk under the stars for a romantic, once in a lifetime marriage proposal is all that’s on the cards for Karan, who’s planning to pop the question to his long-time girlfriend on 12/12/12.
Calling it a “magical” day, he says: “I chose the date specifically as a memorable one that we can claim as our own some day down the road. It is the last day of the century that such a combination of date, month and year will unite.
“Why not turn it into a day for our unity?”
World over, many are looking upon 12/12/12 as a day of special meaning, calling it ‘auspicious’ or ‘unique’ for marriage or to give birth, while others are looking upon it as the start of a doomsday scenario as per the ancient Mayan calendar prediction that the world will end by December 21, 2012.
But let’s get into the significance of these numbers:
Astrologists and conspiracy mongers have added another ominous date to the list of foreseen doom — December 12.
December 12, 2012, or 12/12/12, is the last date for the next 88 years when every number will be the same. At 12:12 a.m. and p.m. there will be five repeats of the number, six if you care to watch the clock tick until it reaches 12 seconds.
It’s also a special day for thousands of kids celebrating their twelfth birthday on Wednesday, including one who says he was born at 12:12 p.m.
Predictions abound for the day, and at least one astrologer in Australia is predicting a Y2K-style internet and computer breakdown, according to News.com.au.
“On 12.12.12 the world is feeling the impact of a stressful pattern between Mercury and Neptune, the planet that rules leaks (like Wikileaks) and also flooded computer networks,” she is quoted as saying.
If you read on with that article, you will also hear about an influx of caesarian bookings at hospitals, with parents wanting their kids to be born on 12/12/12.
We look forward to 12:12:12 on 12/12/12 and will standby with baited breath, for whatever may or may not happen!
Good luck out there.
