Dear Editor:

Some say there are logical reasons why the Mayan calendar ended on the date that it did; only to begin a new cycle, but what about the date 12-21-12? It marks the winter solstice, which is the darkest day of the year. As this dark day passes, it leads to longer and warmer days, to a year of new growth. But the Mayans weren't the only ones to pick this date.

Osiris is the Egyptian god of death and resurrection. The Egyptians predicted that on December 21, 2012, at 22:11 a.m. (Greenwich Meridian Time). Osiris will rise again when the sun will align with the galactic center of the Milky Way galaxy, which occurs every 3,000 years. The precession of the equinoxes will conclude a 26,000 year cycle and bring the age of Pisces to an end and begin the Age of Aquarius. The cycle will begin as the sun rise out of the mouth of the Ouraboros (the Serpent of the Milky Way). The sun will rise in Sagittarius and will be depicted as the centaur with a bow. Osiris is seen coming out of the Leviathan as the sun god, who is "rising again." The ancients foresaw this time as pointing to destruction and judgment "from the gods."

Osiris was the oldest son of the earth god, Geb, and, the sky goddess, Nut. Osiris is seen as having green skin and partially mummified legs, holding a crock and flail. Surrounding him are ostrich feathers. They symbolize the purity of heart one needs in order to pass into the after-life where Osiris is the judge. After Osiris died, the was later resurrected. He then became the deity of new beginnings. In December of this year, Orion's Belt will rise directly over the three pyramids of Egypt. The Egyptians picked December 2012, for the resurrection (rising) of Osiris to return to earth; a return to life and order to the world. This will symbolize a new consciousness rising. It will be Osiris rising in the Age of Aquarius.

According to the followers of the occult, there are three star gates that need to be opened to usher in the Age of Aquarius; the age of peace, love and harmony. The first star gate was opened in 1999, the second in 2011, and the third star gate will be opened on December 21, 2012, at 11:11 GMT. Interestingly, it's to be ushered in by a new world order, and a "superman" who will unite the world after a possible global collapse. It could be economic, political, religious or a combination of them all. The star gates are those from which spiritual entities will break forth into the world scene to aid in a great work. The Mayans predicted that the serpent god, Quetzalcoatl will return to earth from heaven at the end of the age.

It's interesting when you factor in occult numerology to the date 12-21-12 and the time 11:11. The most venerated numbers of the occult religion are 3,6,9, 11 and 13, and also sacred are the multiples, 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, etc. A triplication (111, 222, 333) of numbers is considered especially sacred; especially the number (1) and its double, 11, in 11:11 or 11:11:11 (a triplication).

The winter solstice will occur on 12:21:2012 and the time 11:11.

The entire date is 12-21-2012 = 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1 = 11.

The time 11:11 and the date (11) according to the occult is 11:11:11.

The date and the time correlate with the sacred triplication of 11.

The number 11 marks the beginning of new cycles; an activation.

Mathematically, 11x11= 123-4-321.

The sun's magnetic field operates on a cycle of polarity reversals averaging 11.11 years in length and then has dramatic abnormalities with solar flares.

Saturn (Satan) was birthed out of Venue on November 1, 2011.

There was a full moon on 11/10/11 (the eve of the 11th).

The Libra conjunction is every November 11.

The sun is the "crown" of the scales in Libra on the ecliptic. The constellation's two balances can have a "1" or a pillar on either side to become a portal.

There were three planetary alignments on November 11, 2011.

Neptune-Venus-Saturn (three planets) or 1,2,3 1x2x3=6. 6

Uranus-Earth-Mars (three planets) or 1,2,3 1x2x3=6 6

Venus-Mercury-Earth (three planets) or 1,2,3 1x2x3=6 6.

The cosmic Serpent (Lucifer) crop circle occurred on July 29, 2011, near Inkpen, England. It's one of the biggest crop circle s ever seen in England, and it mirrored the specific time of the 11:11:11 planetary alignments with Hydra. Hydra is between the cosmic "11."

Is it possible that this date, time, theology and theory about 11:11:11 are coming together for a long anticipated event? Maybe it's an open door to heaven; an exchange, or an unlocking; a "birthing" that is about to take place. Many people worldwide believe that during this time we were literally in the birth canal of this event. That on 11:11:11 a head crowned (during birth) and a burst came through a birthing that occurred in "Some One" or "Ones" in exchange for the many. Was there a re-emergency and an unleashing? Could Saturn have been birthed out of Venus on 11:11:11 to initiate a vibration of sound that went out and around the planet for a new state of being to occur, to break away from the old vibration to receive a new transformed one? Is Osiris rising?
