December, 21, 2012 - Financial Collapse?

Mysteriously the calendar ends on this date (December 21, 2012) which marks a period when a galactic alignment of the planets occurs to the center of the universe.  Some feel this is the last day of earth while others feel it is the beginning of a new time and spiritual awareness or spiritual transformation.   A time going from one astrological age to another.   What ever this "time" means, this huge block of time, obviously has some type of importance to mankind and perhaps life as we know it.    

This time period is said to be a "long count", a 5,125-year-long cycle to the ancient peoples known as the Mayans.  The Mayans were worshipers of the stars and held many rituals where time and positions of the stars were of great importance.  Their pyramids are even lined up to various stars in space.  Today these artifacts left behind by the Mayans are now mysteries as the ancient civilization mysteriously disappeared and can only be pondered upon.  Much like the mysterious disappearance of the lost city of Atlantis but in this case the Mayans left behind many interesting artifacts to be examined.  One such artifact is the Mayan Calendar and various prophecies that seem to be drawn in many sculpted writings in the form of hieroglyphics.   

December 21st, 2012 A.D. ( in the Long Count), represents an extremely close conjunction of the Winter Solstice Sun with the crossing point of the Galactic Equator (Equator of the Milky Way) and the Ecliptic (path of the Sun), what the ancient Maya recognized as the Sacred Tree.

Maybe those ancient people that wrote in stones wanted to warn future civilizations of great cycles that occurred or perhaps they just wanted to carry on their traditions and worship.  We just don't know why they would go to so much trouble to build great pyramids and why they would be aligned to the stars.  It could be that they just worshiped them as gods or it could be they had some significance to what would happen in time and to future civilizations.  People that live through great catastrophes often try to write about them if they survive. Maybe they know something and that's why they erect these great monuments that will outlive the people who built them, to tell a story that will live through the earth changes.

the Ancient Maya Long Count:
One galactic day of 25,625 years is divided into five cycles of 5,125 years.

Hopefully a great catastrophic event doesn't happen on this date but many great thinkers have written about it and it's potential impact on society.  If a catastrophic event does not occur then what will?  Will nothing occur or will it have some impact on society?  If one big event doesn't happen could it be a series of events leading up to and a period after December 21st, 2012?  Could it be an age of transformation?  Will the stock markets, commodities, gold, and other financial markets be effected?  Will a new golden age start ie an age of prosperity?  All these mysteries have been associated by this period of galactical alignment and perhaps awareness.  Some even think this might be the day that Christ himself will return and reign as king.  And some even think it will be after a great catastrophe and then he will return.  Regardless of your belief, this date has great scientific meaning that is even acknowledged by NASA.

There's even a theory that a planet called the 10th planet will become visible in the sky.  It is known as the 10th planet Nibiru.  According to those that study the 10th planet, it will first become visible in the sky as a comet.  As it's orbit gets closer to earth it will cause massive disasters, earthquakes, flooding, volcanoes, and hurricanes.   

In end of times prophecies it is believed that all these things will occur up to the end of times.  The earth will shake, the heavens will fall, the earth will be on fire, the seas will rise over the earth and great famine will plague the planet. All peoples will be at war.  Essentially this would be hell on earth and perhaps a great collapse.  Should we prepare or blow it off as voodoo?
