Everyone's talking about 2012 these days. But what is it really all about?
It's about a lot of things, all coming together. It's about the state of the world, and where it's going.
It's all about life, the future, and humanity's destiny.
Want to know what will happen in 2012? Want to know how to survive these tumultuous times?
The articles in this section will tell you what you need to know about the Transition coming up, including how you can both keep yourself safe and contribute to the well-being of the Earth at the same time.
NOTE: The 2012 articles are finally completed! Thank you for your patience!
There will be more to follow, I'm sure.
When I started writing this section, I anticipated maybe half a dozen articles. GUFFAW!
And the deeper I get into it, the more I find to share with you. In particular, my own 2012 predictions and insights keep evolving. I suspect the predictions page will be updated regularly. (To keep abreast of the developments and new articles, follow me on Twitter erinDragonsong or 2012 on Facebook.)

2012: Facts and Fiction
The first place to begin is by clearing the confusion of information that's out there, sorting out the facts from the speculation.
So many websites are just repeating each other, even the stuff that's wrong!
What is real, about 2012? What is just confusion? What is illusion?
Find out what I've discovered in my research.
Indian, Mayan, Hopi, and other ancient sages left us calendars that seem to end on Dec 21, 2012. This date is called The Shift of Ages, The End of Time, etc.
Does this mean it's the end of the world?
Well, yes and no.
It's not doomsday, any more than the end of our yearly calendar on December 31st means the end of life.
Astrology is the holographic image of life on Earth, projected onto the galactic screen. (Or vice versa.)
Everything in the universe is a 3-dimensional living hologram of the whole universe. That's what it means when poets speak of seeing the world in a grain of sand, and saints speak of knowing that one thing by which all things may be known (the self, that is).
So astrology resonates with what we experience on Earth.
In astrological terms, 2012 signals the Shift of Ages. We leave the age of Pisces the fish (also known as the Christian age) and enter the age of Aquarius the water bearer.
The Indian texts and Greek/Roman mythology, we are currently living in the Iron Age, the Age of Kali (Kali Yuga). This is a time of metaphorical darkness, a dearth of spirituality and the dominance of ego/intellect over soul/heart.
The turning of the astronomical Year, just as in the Earth's seasonal year, represents a turning from the darkness and entering into Light.
The fact that two momentous and one smaller but potent cycles are simultaneously turning toward the Light is particularly significant. The power behind this transformation is immense!
Like seasons, fading from winter to spring, December 21 2012 is the official first day of Galactic -- and spiritual -- Spring.
But just like the Earth's seasons, it doesn't change like a door opening and closing. It's a process, a gradual shift from the season of darkness to the season of light.
You may have noticed that consciousness did shift dramatically and suddenly that year.
For example, in early 1999, Climate Change was still a fringe concept, actively being discredited by the government. By late 1999, an amazing shift had taken place: Climate Change was suddenly accepted as a reality by everyone. It was no longer seriously disputed except by the most gullible or sceptical.
There was no definitive reason for this shift in the Climate Change debates. Suddenly, without reason, it was just accepted by the global consciousness.
This is just one example of a world-wide transition.
2010 was another pivotal year, though in a different way. There was a strong energy dynamic that could have led to extreme violence and another world war. But that deadly potential was defused, and 2010 passed calmly.
What didn't get noticed, therefore, was the fact that by 2010, humanity had already made the shift toward peace consciousness.
You may not have noticed this if you were paying attention to all the stupid wars still going on, but against the possibility of world-wide nuclear war, we did pretty well.
And it's only going to get better!

December 21, 2012
Let me state it plainly, in case you have any lingering doubts:
December 21, 2012 is not the apocalypse, doomsday, destruction of the Earth, end of all life, or even the end of civilisation as we know it (more or less).
The year is a point of transition, when we've irrevocably crossed a boundary into a new way of being, a new paradigm.
The question remains: what will be the new paradigm?
It can signal the end of a lo-o-o-o-o-o-ong era of darkness and a rebirth into Lightness of being. Or, potentially, it could be the release of humans from physical form on the Earth.
(All the articles in this section after this page, will continue the theme of surviving the Shift of Ages.)
Why It Still Looks So Bad Out There
You may be asking yourself why evil and darkness seem so much more pervasive, so much more powerful than ever, if we really are transitioning to a brighter future.
It's the last, desperate scream of a dying dinosaur.
The resistance to the Shift seems bigger than it is because it's so loud, but it's loud out of fear and pain and defiance of its own transformation. The ego-world is dying, and doesn't trust that it will evolve into something beautiful.
