. We have been passing through the galactic equator since 1998. It takes 18 years, I believe to do so. It completes around 2016 which is a mystical date for some American freemasons. Personally I think our sun moving through the constellation of Ophiuchus is important for 2012. Because of the precession, the sun has only recently started to pass through the constellation of Ophiuchus which is situated between Scorpio and Sagittarius. Nostradamus referred to this constellation as having great importance for humanity.
In mythology Ophiuchus was able to heal the world and make its people immortal but Zeus struck him down with a thunderbolt in jealousy. Then Zeus placed him in the heavens and came him a large snake to hold on to and control. Because Ophiuchus is situated at the dark rift or galactic equator, the snake is seen to represent the milky way.
The symbol for Ophiuchus is similar to the medical associations snake twined round a staff. [because Ophiuchus was a healer] It is also suggested that it is a symbol of DNA which I personally find interesting because, I believe that DNA is not of this world but was transplanted to this world. I personally believe that when the axial precession allows our sun and earth to conjunct the dark rift in Ophiuchus on the winter solstice [Dec 21], then the DNA of life on this planet upgrades. Another pet theory of mine is that the DNA shift on this alignment will allow our pineal gland as part of our ‘third eye’ to be able to produce melatonin whilst awake. Therefore we will be able to live / inhabit a dream state [like the aborigines and Hopi peoples believe]. In this dream state I feel that we might be able to pass into the 4th dimension to begin the 5th human civilization. This would effectively make us seem to disappear to the people whose third eyes do not awaken. They would seem to be left behind in the 3rd dimension and they would perish with the dying 4th world civilization.
I think the change will be very fast if not instant because of the line in 2nd Corinthians in which Paul says that “we will all be changed in the twinkling of the eye”. The Hopi peoples also have predicted instantaneous changes causing immense psychological stress to some. The ancient Olmecs people who allegedly passed on their knowledge to the Mayans were said to have ‘vanished’ together on mass. Shaman say that their third eye opened and they elected to pass to the 4th dimension and permanently out of our world. This sounds strikingly like the ‘Rapture’ that Jesus Christ promised his true believers in the ‘final days’. The bible says that the chosen will be seen to just vanish on mass and be spared the tribulations of the apocalypse. I think the rapture refers to what might happen to many people when we open up our third eye and enter a dream state & are able to pass freely into the 4th dimension. Because the nature of the fourth dimension involves Time, I believe that those that pass will seem to be immortal.[not bound by linear time] Hence the legend that Ophiuchus was able to make mankind immortal.
Lastly I feel that the Resurrection also promised by Jesus in the final days will be enabled by the great change. By this I surmise that all previous lives ‘soul’ consciousness will become free of the limbo that they dwell in and will be reunited with the immortal spirit entity that makes up the core of our personal psyche.
