for whatever reason, all the information in the computers of the banks
of the world were suddenly eradicated. This would mean that all accounts
and holdings of money, stock, options, etc., would disappear. Although
many individuals would regard this as a catastrophe, we may ask if anything
of value would be lost. Obviously not! All natural resources, buildings,
machines, human knowledge, goods, etc., that existed before, would remain
untouched by such a hypothetical synchronistic head crash in all the world's
bank computers. In terms of real values, nothing would be lost and the
world could easily pick up the day after (leaving aside the emotional
effects this occurrence would have on many)." (6)
of the above quote, Carl Johan Calleman, is a biomedical scientist with
a Ph. D. from the University of Stockholm, who has dedicated himself to
studying Mayan astrology and finding correlations between it and economic
history. And he has concluded this:
between (economic and Mayan cycles) is so strong that most economists
could only dream of attaining a similar concordance to support their
theories. What is more, it is based on very simple facts that anyone
with a basic economic education can verify.
that modern, computerized astrology and modern, computerized economics
are complementary is a book put out by the International Society of Business
Astrologers, founded in the 1990s by Karen Boesen of Copenhagen. Ms. Boesen
brought together astrologers specializing in finance, business and economics
from around the world.
author of Planetary Economic Forecasting, writes
in his introduction to Business Astrology:
books such as this, individuals who have become interested in the subject
can benefit from the experience of the people who have been building
the practice from the ground up.
read the cycles of the visible planets only. Telescopes, modern astronomy
and computers now make it possible to read cycles within cycles within
cycles and the various angles involved, and to correlate these with past
history, in order to scry the future. By finding which planetary patterns
and cycles were extant when past economic or social upheavals occurred,
we have what is needed to make far more accurate predictions.
In past centuries,
a small minority studied astrology, mainly because it took so many years
of concentrated effort to master this complex subject. Today's astrologers
are equipped with computers and astronomical accuracy, yet it's still
a vast and complex area of knowledge, so niches of expertise have arisen.
are astrologers who specialize in doing personal readings, others whose
area of expertise is geopolitics, others who do only compatibility charts.
Some focus on "reading the transits" only, or researching weather patterns,
electromagnetic and solar flare correlations with heliocentric planetary
angles. Astrologers who specialize in the stock market work for some of
the most open-minded clients alive.
I came to
economic astrology because I believe economics is the core of culture.
How any society—past or present—goes about the business of providing food,
clothing, shelter and the amenities for itself is what makes other endeavors
possible: the arts and sciences, medicine, military defense and conquests.
As the world's
leading scientists have been telling us for the past decade, our present
economic model is unsustainable. The present belief is that efficiency
is to be measured in profits, denominated in dollars and other currencies.
This model, by ignoring the losses sustained by exploited environments
and people, is leading us toward a future that could make the Dark Ages
seem pleasant by comparison. But economists have no way, at present, to
measure benefits or damages suffered by societies and environments. "Economists
refuse to face these problems because to do so they must admit that their
pet economic models are deeply flawed..." (7)
we have exploited each other and the Earth for
money. But money is a means of exchanging things of wealth, not wealth
itself. Within the next 15 years, we must change the way we create and
distribute wealth, according to the world's leading scientists, or face
Is this what
the ancient Mayan astrologers were referring to when they cited the lunation
of 2012 as "the end of the world?" They weren't saying the Earth
will end. I think they were saying that either our habitual way of dealing
with our planet and each other will radically change, or our sojourn as
a species on planet Earth will end.
among early explorers of the Americas repeatedly mention the "Garden of
Eden" to describe the abundance of the Indians. The prevailing economic
model in the Americas then was that Mother Earth
is the source of all wealth, that harmony with Mother Earth
perpetuates economic abundance.
Mayan prediction for 2012 is saying, I think, is that we must restore
this paradigm as our economic model, or face extinction. This is the same
thing the world's leading scientists are saying today, although in modern
the present economic model, however, a radical change must occur in each
of us. For centuries, we have based personal prestige on material wealth,
and/or money. We've now come to the end of that game and must find another
basis for personal prestige. We are, after all, primates and all primates

highlights this when he says:
are hominids, and, like other primates, they form pecking orders. Pecking
orders work by exclusion. Some scientists, like many religious leaders
of our culture, think they have a monopoly on truth. Truth is, their
social pyramid and its official ideology are a real obstacle in the
way of human spiritual progress.
knowledge and money have in common that they're both means, not ends in
reminds us that truth depends on one's perspective: when it's summer south
of the equator, it's winter north of the equator. We can view the planets
from a geocentric or heliocentric perspective. In the not-too-distant
future, we may be able to view our Solar System from somewhere deep in
the Milky Way.
it ever be possible for we pecking-order-making hominids to become economically
inclusive enough to end the suicidal exploitation of the Earth
and each other? I think that's the question being introduced to human
consciousness by the planetary cycles and alignments forming now, climaxing
with the lunation of 2012, and lasting through the 2000-teens.
Johan Calleman's analysis of the Maya long cycle. Essentially,
the Maya calculated that at the crack of dawn on the winter solstice 2012,
our Sun will be conjunct a dark rift in the Milky Way, symbolized as the
Mother of the Universe's vagina, from whence will be born, or reborn,
the Lord of our World. Some believe this god corresponds to the pantheistic
Sun god or Christian Christ, god of enlightenment.
