U-Predict – 12/03/2013: The New Baktun – The Promise of a New Consciousness?

A year ago, the month of December was fraught with speculation – was the world going to end?  What was the meaning of the end of the Mayan long count of time keeping, known as a baktun?  A large number of callous folks who saw a way to make a buck, told the world it was doomed on television, the Internet, and in printed material.  The Mayans themselves spoke out and said that it was time of celebration; that humanity would make a turn in consciousness – and that it would quickly be apparent that the corner had been turned.  When dealing with a society who has 144,000 CE years as their longest counted span of time, I had to wonder if they meant quickly as in 5 years or quickly as in 50,000 years.  That, and a bunch of interesting changes taking place on the planet, made me want to ask the tarot this question.  The Reading Room included Ivy Lieberman, Anita Perez, Jean Maurie Puhlman, Kea Hypnosis, Joanne Matthews, and ReeNee Cummins. 

We started by announcing that the Vatican and Oxford University was releasing a large number of ancient manuscripts online for public view.  Considering how secretive the Vatican had been with documents in the past, the Reading Room took it as yet another sign that things were changing.  Since we had started with the Vatican, it was natural to stay with this institution for our next questions.  The first question, of course, had to do with the fact that Pope Benedict had “retired” and the Catholic Church had replaced him with a completely different kind of clergy; one who was truly concerned with the sick and the poor.  Not only did this man criticize Catholics around the world who had forgotten this part of their compassion, but he has called out governments and members of the media who seem to not understand this value.  Immediately, we began to see the most important card in the reading show up in synchronicity, Judgment.  This card represents the “day of judgment”.  It was very thought provoking to see this card when talking about the values of compassion and care for the sick and poor.  The card also means “wake up.”  This is the meaning that most applied to this reading.  We need to wake up.  Yes, Pope Francis is a sign that things are changing.  Things are moving in a more spiritual direction.

We moved on to the world in general.  The tarot indicated that the Middle East will continue to be a powder keg.  The cards responded that the thousand-plus year old arguments between the peoples in that region will not be resolved.  However the cards were very positive when we discussed the fact that Americans had seemed to grow war weary, and that we were seeing positive results of diplomatic missions instead of boots on the ground.  The cards continued to tell us to wake up, that diplomacy successes were to be interpreted that consciousness was changing.

The rest of the questions are best served by discussing the synchronistic cards.  Besides Judgment (which was pulled an unbelievable 7 times in the hour), the Major Arcana ruled the reading.  Again this only amplifies the importance of the idea that consciousness is changing – this is a critical message that must be shared with the spiritual community.  The Empress, The Hermit, The Hanged Man, Temperance, and the Star were also pulled in Synchronicity.  Usually, a card is pulled 4 or 5 times in synchronicity if it is important; Judgment, The Empress, The Hanged Man, and Temperance were pulled in excess of 5 times. 

The meaning of the reading is very clear:  Wake up (Judgment)!  It is a time of rebirth and hope (Star). The Empress is pregnant with the love of the Mother, and abundance will return.  However, there must be balance (Temperance) or you will go nowhere like the (Hanged Man).  Keep seeking and searching your own path (The Hermit).

When we spoke about the United States, the tarot spoke of shenanigans like closing down the government will end with the Hanged Man; a very public and embarrassing way to hang.  The people who choose to behave in this manner must also ask themselves what are they sacrificing by their behavior – could it be the next election, and their chance to be heard?  We will ask election questions on our 2014 prediction show on the 10th

The feminine was very apparent with the number of times the Empress was pulled.  When U-Predict initially did a 12/12/2012 show as well as predictions for 2013, the feminine force and the power of the feminine figured prominently in the reading.  Not only are people clamoring for Hilary Clinton to run for president, but a number of other outstanding women are coming to the attention of the country.  We have Wendy Davis, who fought for Texas women’s rights running for Governor.  Both Senators Elizabeth Warren and Governor Jennifer Grandholm (2-time Governor of Michigan) are also considered contenders for the presidential or vice presidential spot on a national ticket.  Despite her attempted tarnishing by the House of Representatives, National Security Advisor Susan Rice has bravely been meeting with Afghanistan Tribal Leaders to get our troops out of Afghanistan, and give these people a stable society to live in peace.  These men normally would not even consider an idea from a woman, as they usually see women as inferior.  Something is changing to make this possible. 

The rising again of women as legislatures across the country try to take away rights that feminist though we settled decades ago, also show the waking of a powerful force of nature.  Again, the Hanged Man and the embarrassing lack of knowledge many legislators have shown about basic human reproduction comes to mind. 

As far as Minor Arcana cards in synchronicity, there were only 3.  There was the King of Swords, The 3 of Swords, and the 5 of Wands.  The 5 of Wands shows that despite major changes happening in the world as consciousness changes, people will still fight these ideas.  The King of Swords reminds us that well spoken words, good ideas focused on a better life for people, and the truth will help move the new direction of consciousness forward.  The 3 of Swords shows that people will continued to be wounded at an emotional level as this moves forward.  Change doesn’t come easily for many people, and people lash out in hurtful ways when faced with change. 

All in all, I felt our question was answered.  Yes consciousness is changing.  Now is the time to wake up and move humanity forward.  How can we all do this?  U-Predict…
