There may be no year, in all of history that has elicited as much dialogue, literature and discussion as 2012. Most people are aware of 2012's association with the end of the Mayan calendar, which takes place on December 21, 2012. I will not go into the deeper, esoteric meaning of the date in this book. From the perspective of numerology, 2012 is a FIVE Universal year. A FIVE year is a year of change, transformation, transitions, and movement. It is also a representation of the human condition (the 5 senses). With that in mind, 2012 portends a culmination of the changes that have been sweeping the planet over the past few years. This year has the potential to finally place humankind on a new and more beneficial (to all) course. As with all years, there are positive and negative aspects that must be considered.
The positive aspects of a FIVE Universal year indicate an increase in the activity surrounding commerce and trade, with an improvement in the overall economic conditions globally. This may be the year when the world financial picture shows some sustained growth with a healthier outlook although I believe that true improvement will not occur until 2013 (a Universal 6 Year). This, of course, will be directly effected by the groundwork and foundation that was laid in 2011 (a Universal 4 Year).
More important in the context of the FIVE year will be conditions and situations concerning the human condition. 2012 should see a great increase in the interest in metaphysics and psychology...a more intense and far-reaching desire to more fully understand our existence here on Earth. In Numerology, FIVE is an indication of the human experience and the FIVE senses, and it is within this context where a greater focus will be aimed. People will be drawn to better educating themselves in new and different subjects, while simultaneously intensifying their knowledge of the “whys” of their lives. There will be a development in new attitudes and beliefs, and a rejuvenation of the human spirit. A rise in the condition of the “one” will be seen as a natural baseline for the rising up of all of mankind. Individuals will look to not only gain deeper insight and understanding into their personal existence, they will also be more in-tune with their part in the bigger picture...”what part do I play in the whole?” People will be much more aware of the effects that their individual efforts have on the collective. We may see an increase in heroic actions that lift us all to a better place. This may all be coupled with new and (in the context of the times) radical views on the way we live and co-exist with one another and our planet. The FIVE Universal year brings about expansion in many realms of living. There will be an undercurrent of change and transition that will affect societies and the way things are handled (think back to the social changes of 1967). People will more fully understand the importance of being versatile and of possessing the innate ability to foster the changes necessary to improve the “race consciousness” as it pertains to living in concert with the planet on which we reside. Improvements in many aspects of living and commerce may be brought about. New ideas and thought patterns that more keenly connect us to our sense of spirit and our thoughts about oneness may spring up in all segments, cultures, and countries around the globe. In the United States, 2012 may bring about a change in our elections and electoral processes. This may very well be the year when a new, third party arises from the political landscape as people desire, and clamor for a change in the system and the way things are done. It is important to remember that CHANGE and BALANCE are two key words associated with the 5 energy and it is obvious to this author that change is necessary and things most definitely must be brought into balance for the good of everyone.
On the negative side of the 5 Universal year, there may be an increase in international nervousness, as reactions to the impending changes are met with fear and a show of force. One of the other conditions the 5 represents are the tenets of law and order. While people will be seeking justice, the powers that be may react by using new, and more restrictive laws to hold onto their place of power. As the old way of doing things falls away, we may experience great opposition to the new, more radical thoughts and beliefs that will permeate the mindset of people. Political assassinations may take place, as people looking to foster change, but who are working out of fear, may feel it necessary to make an urgent and dramatic statement.
One of the key conditions of the number 5 is BALANCE. It is of the utmost importance, that everyone seeks, and discovers, their own personal middle ground. One must understand, and take responsibility for their actions while giving thought to the effect their actions may have on the overall picture. One of the schools of thought associated with December 21, 2012 is it is the end of the 4th age, as understood by indigenous cultures around the world. The 5th age is the Age of Man. We are moving into a time where we will once again, more greatly understand our connection to one another, and to Mother Earth. If a positive outlook and belief system can take root, we will all get to experience a better life and existence. In many ways, this will be a time of rebirth...rebirth of balance, harmony, joy, compassion, consideration and love.
It is this author's prayer that you gain the understanding and insight necessary so you can do your part and participate in these changes, and you may get to enjoy that which lies before you.
Blessings of love and light.
