Comet Elenin and the Mayan Calendar and Astrology Forecast for August 7-13

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have been alerting our readers for some time now that there is a shifting of Ages from a passing Pisces Age, begun over 2000 years ago, to a new Aquarian Age that we are on the cusp of.

This new age is one of equality, of diversity in unity.   And true unity is rooted in unity consciousness, a place inside each of us that knows there is oneness in the Universe, that all the dots of life are connected meaningfully.

We are on this train of movement into a new age, and the train is picking up speed. Many are experiencing this as a feeling that time is speeding up.  As we have recently moved through many recent powerful and important planetary alignments, human life on Earth has been rapidly changing.

The USA is an important component in the global shift that is in alignment with the now rapid movement into an Aquarian Age.  As we are evolving into a world of greater equality and Diversity in Unity, superpowers that run the world as an Empire do not fit.

So the USA is now going through a transformation that will bring it into greater equality with other nations in the world.   The economy here is going to tumble quite a bit over the next few months;  and since the USA and its dollar influence so much of the world economy, all the world will go through economic transformation now.  The recent debt debacle, the stock market fall this week, and the first ever USA credit downgrade expose the weakness of the USA economy. It will get much worse.

There are a few things to consider as we move through the second half of summer and early autumn 2011.    There is the Mayan Calendar according to the expert researcher Carl Calleman, and the movements of comets Honda and Elenin and perhaps Levy also.

There is a great synchronicity between the end of the Mayan calendar on October 28, according to Calleman, and the movements of Honda and especially Elenin.     Elenin is the one to watch most closely, as it conjuncts the Sun and Mercury around September 26, and makes its closet approach to Earth around October 17.

According to Calleman, whose work I have been studying since 2000, the 9th and final wave of the Mayan calendar began on March 9.  On March 11 Elenin was conjunct the Sun.  That day the enormous earthquake erupted in Japan, an earthquake that killed so many and broke open the nuclear reactor there.    So there appears to be a connection between the Mayan calendar according to Calleman, the comet Elenin, and events on Earth.   As we just stated, Elenin will conjunct the Sun again on September 26 this year.

And of course keep in mind that the  last 3 eclipse seasons have been a part of rare and profound astrological alignments, which also show us what important times we are in now.

The first wave of the Mayan Calendar, according to him began over 16 billion years ago, so this 9th and final wave ending on October 28 2011 ends an enormous grand cycle of time.    Since we are also ending a 2160 year Pisces astrological age around the same general time period, we know we are in a most important and profound time for our human family here on Earth.

In order to get to this world of equality and Diversity in Unity, there needs to be not only a vast world economic transformation, but also a changing of the paradigm for living on the Earth.  And the old power structure must come down in order for us to live lives more connected and respectful to each other, to the Earth, and to the Universe.

Does it not seem obvious now that the old world structure will not really change on a core level unless great events occur.  Yes the old economic structure is falling.    And likely more great earthquakes will erupt.   And world war may come soon too, probably concerning Iran.

The train of Unity consciousness is getting stronger and it is coming against a huge block in the body of human consciousness.  In order for this block to be cleared, all the toxins inherent in the block must be brought up and released so the new energies can move through.  I am sure you in your personal life have experienced these types of transformational  time periods.

Perhaps you worked through some blocks in your body and psyche that needed to be cleared and transformed.  Your fears and negative attitudes and beliefs brought you to crises in your life.  These negative energies were programmed into you in your early life and family and by society.   These programs were counter to and blocked your deeper soul’s wisdom of truth and love and sacred meaning to life.  They caused you dis-ease of mind, soul, spirit and body.

And then the crisis hit, a death or sickness or breakup or breakdown or abandonment or loss of income or job or home, etc. That crisis forced you to reevaluate your beliefs, your health, you way of living, life itself.   That crisis motivated you to change, to heal, to transform your life.

This is what our whole country and world is facing now.   The old programs, the old paradigm is no longer working.  We as a culture are dis-eased, blocked from the truth and love, from the wisdom of our souls, free minds and hearts.  It is time for a huge breakdown so the blocks can be broken through.

The most recent breakdowns for the USA have not changed at a core level our way of doing business in the world.   The 9-11 tragedy did not move our country to more deeply contemplate our own role in the world and how that influenced our fate.   We only saw enemies who needed to be killed.    Unity consciousness tells us we are all connected to one another, and that our actions and energy attract to us in like kind.  We did not think of how we needed to change our way of relating to the rest of the world, we did not see that we have invaded and dominated other peoples, especially in the middle east.

The western world has been colonizing other countries and peoples for many years now, and this has put us in a very vulnerable position- karmically speaking.

Transformation is ending the idea that we are special and privileged, and that those who do not agree with us are bad people and enemies who need to be dominated and killed.   We have troops all over the world and are now involved in 3 wars in other people’s countries. And none of those countries attacked us, which is the only arguable reason to be in war, to protect one’s people.

Hopefully our wiser elders will gain stronger voice in our world soon, so we do not have to face darker and darker events in order to humble ourselves, change our beliefs and attitudes, break down our collective blocks from our deeper American Soul and values, and connect with unity consciousness.

We will soon find out how valid the viewpoint of Calleman about the October 28 end date really is.   And what influence does Comet Elenin have with all this?  And how is this all connected with the movement into an Aquarian Age? And in a future blog we will look at the how the Hopi prophecies fit into the picture too.

For now, astrologically speaking, we are in the beginning of Mercury Retrograde, lasting until August 26.  Since Mercury has been closely opposite Neptune for the last couple of weeks, Mercury has been playing tricks even more this time than usual.

So when upsetting events come into your mind and life now, do not get anxious or panicked. Do not jump to conclusions too quickly.  Let the process play out naturally.  Let events unfold before coming to an answer, if one can now be found.   Mercury retrograde can be quite the trickster, so don’t get fooled.  Trust spirit and the soul’s wisdom more now, not your linear thinking mind.

If people or memories are returning to your life and/or consciousness now, spend time re-connecting and reminiscing, but don’t get sucked up in any dramas that take you far off course. Wait for Mercury to go back direct before taking the plunge.  Your perspective is shifting now, and you need to let the retrograde period run its course.  This does not mean to be afraid or superstitious. If you need to make decision or do something important, and it cannot wait, then it is part of natural order and you have to deal with it now.

See you next week,
