The Astrology of 2012

The Astrology of 2012 and How it Affects You
by Marcus Mason
Posted by: DailyOM


With ever-increasing reports of catastrophic natural disasters and political upheaval taking place all over the world, and daily evidence that many of our traditional social and economic systems are no longer working, it's no wonder that we hear ourselves desperately asking: 'What's going on?' In this book, astrological expert Marcus Mason uses his extensive knowledge on the subject to provide some real answers to this question - and to explain how all of this applies to you, based on your personal sun sign. 21st December 2012 marks the end of a 25,626 year Time Cycle, caused by the Earth gradually changing her orientation in space. As we approach the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next, approaching astrology from the perspective of the soul's evolution can help us understand the inner, spiritual purpose behind the events and experiences of our lives. By exploring the sequence of astrological changes as they unfold, this book shows you that we are all being offered the exciting opportunity to: change our perceptions, by uniting the intelligence of the mind with that of the heart; understand how we can truly connect with each other and live in harmony; remember how to honour our Mother Earth; and, create a new, and infinitely more positive vision for our future. 
The Astrology of the 2012 Solstice

At first glance, the geocentric Chart (see Colour Plate 16) does not appear to be anything special. It shows what needs to be learned from the level of the ego and personality. It is the Sun-centred, heliocentric chart that reveals the true spiritual potentials that emerge into human consciousness on 21 December 2012.

Geocentric Chart (21 December 2012)

In the geocentric chart, the Sun is exactly conjunct with Juno, and is within 9° orb of Pluto. The Sun’s conjunction with Juno is crucial. We have seen throughout that Juno represents the principle of Right Relations. One of Juno’s most important qualities is ‘remembering’: why we came here; why we incarnated on the Earth at this particularly powerful time. We saw earlier that Juno reminds us of our ‘soul contracts’, the agreements or spiritual ‘tasks’ that our soul has undertaken to fulfil in this lifetime. As the Sun emerges with Juno, out of the depths of Earth’s Galactic Winter, it brings our soul’s awareness of our spiritual purpose into the Light.

We become more fully aware of what this means for us after the Sun becomes exactly conjunct with Pluto on 30 December 2012, and Juno becomes exactly conjunct with Pluto on 14 January 2013. The Sun and Juno are in opposition to retrograde Ceres, at the end of Gemini; this should create a deepening sense that our most important relationship is with Mother Earth.

In the West we have grown up in cultures that do not appreciate the significance of this relationship; we have learned that family, or our immediate loved ones, provide our most important relationships. Without the support and nourishment from the Earth, however, we would not exist at all, nor would any of our other relationships. This may seem so obvious, yet it is a fundamental fact all too easily missed, or taken for granted, in the cultures we have created.

In recent years, global warming and the increasing frequency of natural disasters have, ever so painfully slowly, been reminding us of our total dependence on Mother Earth; she is now shouting at us so loudly, insistently and frequently that we can no longer afford to ignore her. Collectively, we have begun to act on this awareness, although for many this is still motivated by the desire to maintain a lifestyle similar to the one that created the problem. This lifestyle, which has lost any real understanding of our intimate relationship with the Earth, has only truly existed since the Industrial Revolution. Before then, we understood our dependence on Nature; since then, we have learned to exploit Her ever more ruthlessly. It is sobering to visit the home of the Industrial Revolution at Ironbridge in Shropshire, and see how beautifully the bridge now blends into the natural environment. We could learn much by contemplating this.
