>Today the Earth begins anew its annual ring around the Sun, as calibrated by Sirius, the brightest fixed star inthe sky. In the 13 Moon Dreamspell, the name of today, and therefore the year it initiates, is White RhythmicWizard, or 6 Ix. This is the solar ring that brings us into the Gregorian year 2012, key to the popular conceptionof "the Mayan Calendar" and a potential return of the great teachings encoded therein. This is often interpretedas the long awaited Return of Quetzalcoatl, spoken of in legends of ancient Mexico's great culture bringer CeAcatl Topiltzin -- the Plumed Serpent.The key to the prophecy cycle of Quetzalcoatl is the recurrence of the year bearing his name -- Ce Acatl, or 1Reed -- according to the 52-year rounds of the Mesoamerican calendar system. It's important to understand thatthe historical aspect of this prophecy is correlated to what is now known as The Aztec Calendar, the samecalendar used by the Toltec people during the lifetime of Ce Acatl Topiltzin (10th Century AD).The first part of this cycle began in 843 AD (the first Aztec year 1 Reed of the 11th Baktun) and culminatedThirteen rounds later (13 x 52 = 676 years) in 1519, when the year 1 Reed was marked by the arrival of HernanCortez at Vera Cruz & the subsequent collapse of the Aztec civilization. The second part was defined by ninerounds beginning in 1519 and culminating (9 x 52 = 468 years later) in 1987 with the Harmonic Convergence.When looking at these historical cycles, it is interesting to note that in contrast to the Maya, the Aztec civilizationdid not name the years of the calendar-round for the day on which they began, but for the 360th day (of 365).Naming cycles after the 360th day is a tradition of great antiquity in Mesoamerica. The cycles of the famousLong Count, for example, based on a 360-day "tun", are always named for the day on which they end.December 21, 2012, the final zero-day of the 13th Baktun, is 4 Ahau, meaning it completes a 360-day tun named4 Ahau, as well as a 20 x 360-day "katun", also named 4 Ahau.While the Maya restricted this pattern of naming cycles after their 360th day to the tun, their Olmecpredecessors, as well as the later Aztec, extended this convention to include the 365-day civil year. Thereforean Aztec year 1 Reed actually begins 359 days before 1 Reed, on a day that is the Mayan equivalent of 6 Ix.This means that the 360th day of the Rhythmic Wizard (6 Ix) year that begins today will likewise be 1 Reed (1Ben -- Magnetic Skywalker). The sequence of days in a Dreamspell year 6 Wizard is precisely the same as thesequence of an Aztec year 1 Reed (beginning on day 1 with 6 Ix, & ending on day 365 with 6 Etznab).In order to correlate the Roman calendar, the Mayan scribes of the colonial period chose to use the Julian, rather than Gregorian, calendar, although they were certainly aware of the Gregorian reform. The most important datefor the correlation of calendars in the colonial Chilam Balam texts (18 Zac = Feb. 15) occurs in a (Mayapancalendar) year that began on July 13 (Julian). The first day of the first year of the 1 Reed prophecy cycle in 843AD was also July 13 in the Julian calendar. Currently the Gregorian & Julian calendars differ by 13 days,meaning that today, July 26 Gregorian, is also July 13 in the Julian calendar.July 13 (Julian) 843 AD = Aztec New Year (1 Izcalli), 6 Ix traditional.July 13 (Julian) 2011 AD = 13 Moon New Year, 6 Ix Dreamspell.We can see here a grand synchronization of Galactic Mayan prophecy, where the initiation of the historicalprophecy cycle of 1 Reed returns through the Dreamspell for the final full year of the 13th Baktun, in preparationfor entry into a time beyond history.There are three days of special significance in the coming year to consider. One is the leap day of 2012. Onthis day the correlation of the Dreamspell to the traditional count will shift by one day, from a difference of 48 toone of 47. The 47-day interval is of immense significance to the monuments of Palenque and other sources of Galactic Mayan prophecy. Kin 47 (8 Manik) is also the "perfect occult" of 6 Wizard. The Chilam Balam date of 18Zac / Feb. 15, mentioned above, is another confirmation of this synchronization; Feb. 28, 2012 = Feb. 15 Julian(see previous articles “13 Kan” and “Leap Year Lore” for more on 47, Palenque, and the Chilam Balam).
