After 25 years of research and at several key breakthroughs
I decided to publish my findings regarding the Maya
(2012) Long Count calendar. I wrote two articles that
were published in Atlantis Rising, in which, I predicted
an upsurge of natural disasters.
There are several aspects of the Maya cosmology and
calendar system that one needs to know to make any sense
out my work.
1) They had a cyclical view of time and of solar output.
In other words they saw history moving through a circle
of ages that they called Suns. In their system we are
in the 5th Sun. The 4th Sun was said to have ended in
a deluge, the 5th would end with mounting earthquakes,
that is why they called it the Sun-of-Motion or Wind.
2.) Venus also plays a key role in the Maya cosmology.
This fact long puzzled researchers, including this author,
until I made the right scientific connections.
Several yeas ago I was examining the sunspot cycle
and realized that the next solar maximum will come in
2012. That seemed a pretty striking coincidence. I had
done research into the sunspot cycle and its relation
to many different types of cycles on Earth including
Cycle researchers have established an exact correlation
between the solar maximum and what has come to be called
the “War Cycle”.
It seemed to me that the Maya solar-priests were on
to something. One could wonder how they could so well
calculate their complex calendar systems to synchronize
the sunspot cycle with their 2012 end date? As far as
science sunspots were only discovered in the 17th century.
My research took a new course.
My gut had long told me that sunspots and natural disasters
were linked. It stands to reason. Solar Physicists track
solar activity on a daily basis because X-flares, sunspots,
et. al., can increase the solar wind, which can disrupt
the earth’s magnetic field and cause radio and
Is it such a quantum leap to assume that
these bursts of high particle energy also impact the
earth and human beings in a variety of ways? Nonetheless,
what I found still surprised me, a definite link between
solar maximums and natural disasters.
I know that Gilbert and Cottrel discovered that the
sunspot cycle was embedded in the Maya calendar. But
they did not make the link between solar maximums and
natural disasters and that is a big part of the 2012
There is another key factor. The Maya model suggested
that solar output swings, up and down in long-term activity/rest
cycles. It was only within the last 3 months that a
scientific study confirming this was released. The findings
have stunning implications.
The researchers found that our sun has
been more active over the past 70 years than at any
time in the last 8,000 years. The puzzle
pieces started to fit together.
I went back through the studies of the 11-year sunspot
cycle and found a rather startling fact staring back
at me in the data. In 1640, following the second leg
of the (1631-’39) transit(s) of Venus, the sunspot
cycle dropped to zero and stayed there for 70 years.
That period is known as “the little ice age”.
Then in about 1710 sunspots appeared again and the solar
activity level climbed to peak in 1960 when about 190
sunspots were counted. Now, is a coincidence that this
increasing solar output has been accompanied by a warming
That is not all that has accompanied the
steep rise in solar activity that science has recently
documented has been taking place since the 1930s. Natural
disasters have been surging since 1960.
In fact, seven out of ten of the largest earthquakes
that rattled the 20th century occurred after 1960. The
next finding was really more of a shock to me since
I have studied the Maya calendar since 1980. While looking
through astronomical tables three years ago I stumbled
upon the table showing the transits of Venus.
Sure enough, the next pair of transits
came in June 2004 and December 21, 2012. The latter
date is the precise end of the 5th Sun according the
I cannot go into all the details and volumes of data
that I’ve been pouring through these past few
years. The upshot is that I concluded to write the aforementioned
articles predicting a steep rise in natural disasters
partially due to the June transit. The recent wave began
This is not Y2K smoke and mirrors garbage. I have never
written an article before predicting anything. I also
made similar predictions based upon the models derived
from the Maya calendar, on Whitley Strieber’s
radio show the month before the earthquake and tsunami.
These assertions can be documented.
There is far more to this than a simple cosmic alignment
and a global transformation into a new age of spiritual
enlightenment. The sun and the earth are
going through massive shifts right now and these birth
pangs are not going to be painless or stress free.
My interpretation of the Maya term “Passage of
Venus” and the fact they embedded the transit
of Venus into the calendar is that we are in the 2004-2012
window now. Venus is the key.
Will it trigger the solar off switch and shut down
the sunspot cycle again?

a book titled Global Transformation: The 2004-2012 Portal,
which I have decided to make available on the web in
ebook format because the hard copy process takes so
long and the material needs to get out there ASAP.
