"New Age (New Age Movement and New Age Spirituality) is a social collective phenomenon and a spiritual nature/cosmology movement that seeks universal truth through the Oneness of Humanity. It combines aspects of spirituality, esotericism, complementary and alternative medicine, various religious practices and environmentalism. It is characterized by an eclectic and individual approach to spirituality with a general rejection of mainstream dogma and religion. Terms used to describe the movement include: Self Spirituality, New Spirituality and Mind-Body-Spirit. Related terms include: Cultural Creative, Everyone Is Equal, New Paradigm and ALL IS ONE.
The term "New Age" refers to the coming astrological Age of Aquarius. The New Age Movement first appeared in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, gained momentum in the 1960s and 1970s, then strengthened in the late 1980s with the Harmonic Convergence. New Age practices and philosophies are found among many diverse individuals from around the world.
The New Age Movement includes elements of older spiritual and religious traditions from both East and West, many of which have been melded with ideas from modern science, particularly Gaia Theory, psychology, ecology and environmentalism. New Age practices and philosophies sometimes draw inspiration from all the major world religions (Christianity, Judaism, Sufi Islam, Hinduism, Chinese folk religion and Buddhism) with particularly strong influences from New Thought, Western esotericism, Neopaganism, Gnosticism, Universalism, East Asian religions and Indian religions.
Various New Age practices and philosophies span a continuum from atheism and monotheism through classical pantheism including naturalistic pantheism or panentheism.
The New Age Movement has led to a wide array of literature on the subject and an active niche market with products such as new age books, new age music and crafts available in New Age stores, fairs and festivals; also services in alternative medicine."

I have been interested in the calculation of calendars for some time
now. The main thing I discovered is the calendar is put in place by the
ruler of the nation to direct the people in all aspects of trade,
government, holydays and most if not all aspects of life. You can always
locate the real head of the people by finding out who implemented their
calendar. Whether Moses and Aaron, Pharaoh, Cesar, Pope, or King this
person “always” resents god, or the gods on earth. He is the self
proclaimed god on earth!
Referring to Aaron, God spoke to Moses,
Exodus 4:16, ” And he shall speak for thee to the people, and he shall be thy mouth, and thou shalt be for him in things pertaining to God.”
Today many nations (and all nations or countries) that wish to do business with the West use the Gregorian (Pope Gregory XIII) calendar. This is the most widely used calendar in the world!
360 Day Solar Calendar
In earlier times the Hindu, Persian, Hebrew, Babylonian, Assyrian, and
on it goes, calendars were based on a 360 day year with 12 months of 30
Holidays are separate days that are set apart and do not count in the days of the year. If you actually have 365 days in a year but have 5 holidays, those holidays are holy and your calendar year is 360 days.
Strong’s 06942, “apartness, holiness, sacredness, separateness”.
The Flood of Noah’s day, Genesis 7:11, In the six hundredth year of the life of Noe, in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, on this day all the fountains of the abyss were broken up, and the flood-gates of heaven were opened.
Genesis 8:3-4, And the water subsided, and went off the earth, and after an hundred and fifty days the water was diminished, and the ark rested in the seventh month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. The Flood lasted five months, and 5 months equaled 150 days. Simple division shows 5 months of 150 days gives us 30 days per month. Then, 12 months would equal 360 days.
The first instruction, at the time of the Exodus that God gave to Israel was to fix the new calendar. Exodus 12:1-2, “And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be to you the beginning of months: it is the first to you among the months of the year.” This day was the spring equinox when the sun is directly overhead which would be a perfect time to start the new year. Throughout the Book of Exodus you can read about the months, days, and feasts or Holy Days (holidays) that are implemented.
An interesting theory regarding the ancient 360 day calendars is that the days of the year were changed (more than once) in the past due to a major solar system disturbance.
Read the Book of Manuscripts (the Day of the Destroyer). To keep the 360 day calendar, as the days of the year were changed holydays (separate days) were added or removed to continue the 360 day a year cycle. This was made popular by Immanuel Velikovsky in his book Worlds in Collision, a most interesting book and well worth reading.
2012 Mayan Calendar
The origins of the Mayan calendars are obscured by time. The Mayas
themselves were adept sky watchers. Their classical period is thought to
be from 200-900 A.D. However, large ruins with Mayan features have been
found dating back to before the time of Christ. The Mayans attributed
the origin of their incredibly complex calendar system to a people who
existed before them, whose origin was lost in the past.
A rather new bit of information that is becoming very popular now days is the Mayan Calendar prediction of the end of the world on December 21, 2012 at 11:11 GMT when the earth completes it’s 26,000 year Chandler wobble, and the sun’s (eclipse) alignment with the center of our galaxy, another once in 26,000 years. I have no idea how someone determines when the earth’s wobble begins and end. As far as the sun eclipsing the Milky Way, who knows? The Milky Way, “As a galaxy, the Milky Way is actually a giant, as its mass is probably between 750 billion and one trillion solar masses, and its diameter is about 100,000 light years.”
The Mayan Calendar, “Like the ancient calendar of Noah’s time, the Mayan calendar also has 360 days in a year. It also dates to a time before the Noachian deluge. According to the Mayan calendar, we are now living in the Mayan end times. The Great Cycle of the Mayan Long Count calendar ends at the winter solstice in 2012 A.D., less than eight years from now. In Mayan mythology, the winter solstice sun corresponds to the deity known as One Hunahpu, or First Father. The dark rift of the Milky Way, in Mayan cosmology, is known as the Black Road, the mouth of the Cosmic Monster, and the birth canal of the Cosmic Mother. The Mayan calendar has a Great Cycle, ending 13 bactuns or a period of 5,125 years. To the ancient Mayans, this conjunction of the sun and Milky Way center or mid-point will occur on the winter solstice, December 21, in 2012 A.D. This date represents a major transition point, the creation of a new World Age.”
The Mayan Mysteries, “One of the great mysteries of modern times is the Desden Codex, one of the few surviving books from the ancient Mayan civilization that existed in Central and South America. This book, decoded by a German scholar in 1880, opened a door to discovery of the brilliant minds of the Mayans. The Codex is filled with numeric equations based upon the movement of the planets, the sun and the stars. The book and other encoded inscriptions on buildings and surviving stone monuments found mostly in the ruins of the Yucatan Peninsula, include a calendar that is so accurate it puts our present system of measuring years to shame.”
Gilbert and Cotterell note that the Mayans also used another complex system of counting days related to a starting date they called the Birth of Venus. That date was set at Aug. 13, 3114 BC. This calendar was divided into uinals of 20 days, tuns of 360 days and longer periods of 7,200 days known as the katun, and 144,000 days called the baktun. The Mayans seemed to believe that the world as we know it would end at the conclusion of the 13 baktun, measuring from the Birth of Venus.
The Birth of Venus is a long story. Velikovsky’s Worlds in Collision gives quite an explanation about a destroying comet wrecking havoc on the inner solar system on numerous occasions before settling into her orbit and becoming the planet Venus. The Book of Manuscripts describes The Destroyer, “Men forget the days of the Destroyer. Only the wise know where it went and that it will return in its appointed hour.”
Exodus 12:23 “And the Lord shall pass by to smite the Egyptians, and shall see the blood upon the lintel, and upon both the door-posts; and the Lord shall pass by the door, and shall not suffer the destroyer to enter into your houses to smite you.”
The Sun The Moon and the Stars
Throughout world history, myths, and legends the Sun, the Moon and the 5
Planets (wandering stars) were not named after the gods, they were the
gods. There are many other gods (fixed stars, asteroids, and comets) but
I am not sure which ones they referrer to. I will stick with the 7
primary gods for this writing only referred to very briefly to give a
picture of where I am heading.
Sun, in Roman mythology the sun is represented by Apollo, the god of light and Helios the god of the sun. In Egyptian mythology the Sun is the trinity of Horus, Ra, and Set. Horus rising is where we get horizon, Ra is the most high or rays, and Set is the setting of the sun or sun-set. The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection and Royal Power. The eye of Horus can bee seen everywhere in symbols, logos, money, etc.
Genesis 41:45, “And Pharao called the name of Joseph, Psonthomphanech; and he gave him Aseneth, the daughter of Petephres, priest of Heliopolis, to wife.” (the city of the Sun or On)
Moon, in Roman mythology, the Moon was represented by Diana.
Saturn (Satan) is Kronos, Nimrod or Ninurta, and Sumerian Anu or An. In Roman mythology Saturn is the god of agriculture, founder of civilization and of social order and conformity. The reign of Saturn was celebrated by the poets as the Golden Age which was later celebrated by the Romans as Saturnalia. Along with the Winter Solstice celebrations, this holiday later became the Christian Christmas. As Father Time and the Grim Reaper, Saturn represents the ageing process and finally death. So, as the Sun represents life, Saturn represents death.
Venus (Lucifer) in Roman mythology is the goddess of love and beauty, famous for the passions she could stir among the gods.
The newest planet to show up in the ancient religions. It appears to come on the scene around 3,000 BC which would correlate with the so called Mayan calendar. Venus (the destroyer) would also line up with the time of the Exodus and the major world wide earth changing events that took place around 3,000+ BC. Possibly before and even after, until Venus was captured and bound by the sun. Roman: Venus, Greek: Aphrodite, Babylonian: Ishtar, Canaanite - Phoenician: Ashtart, Aztec: Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli, and was the Mayan patron of warfare, with several battles coinciding with significant Venus alignments. Venus - Lucifer is a Latin word meaning “light-bearer” (from lux, lucis, “light”, and ferre, “to bear, bring”), a Roman astrological term for the “Morning Star”, the planet Venus. The word Lucifer was the direct translation of the Septuagint Greek heosphoros, (”dawn-bearer”); (cf. Greek phosphoros, “light-bearer”) and the Hebrew Helel, (”Bright one”) used by Jerome in the Vulgate, having mythological the same meaning as Prometheus who brought fire to humanity.
Venus is the morning star and the evening star.
Mercury, in Roman mythology Mercury was the messenger of the gods, noted for his speed and swiftness .
Mars, is the Roman god of war and bloodshed, whose symbol was a sword.
Jupiter, in Roman mythology Jupiter is the ruler of the gods. Having overthrown his father Saturn, and their guardian and protector, and his symbol is the thunderbolt.
It is all Astrology, or is it Astronomy?
It is said, “all roads lead to Rome.” It should also be said that, “all
roads lead from Babylon.”
The term zodiac denotes an annual cycle of twelve stations along the ecliptic, the path of the sun across the heavens through the constellations that divide the ecliptic into twelve equal zones of celestial longitude. The zodiac is the first known celestial coordinate system. Babel (founded by Nebrod or Nemrod) astrology was inherited by Sumer, Caldean, Babylonia, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Indian, and is the astrology of today.
The Bible does not condemn astrology as it is an Astrological Book throughout the Old and New Testaments. Wise Men, Seers, and Astrologers are one in the same. God tells us in Deuteronomy 4:19 not to go astray and worship the Sun, Moon, and the Stars but nowhere is the study of astrology or the Sun, Moon, and (wandering) Stars prohibited.
Job 38:31-33, “And dost thou understand the band of Pleias, and hast thou opened the barrier of Orion? Or wilt thou reveal Mazuroth (zodiac) in his season, and the evening star with his rays? Wilt thou guide them? And knowest thou the changes of heaven, or the events which take place together under heaven?” Many of the historical and prophetic events of the Bible follow astrological and or astronomical events.
I personally believe that the daily horoscopes and all that stuff is just superstition but, there are powerful electrical, magnetic, gravitational, or other forces that do effect people and the Earth.
Luke 22:8-10, “And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.” Remember Passover, the Man Bearing a Water Pitcher, and following him into the House. This is very important.
This 11:11 is also an occult reference (The word occult is derived from
the Latin word occultus which means “hidden”) and stands for the 22 year
solar minimum solar maximum cycle of the sun. At this writing we are in
a solar minimum where the sun is quiet with very little corona ejection
or sunspots. In 2012 the sun will be entering into it’s 11 year period
of solar maximum. Solar storms with massive corona ejections and sun
spots. The earth’s magnetic field protects us from the coronal mass
ejections which can carry up to 10 billion tons of electrified gas
traveling at speeds as high as 2000 km/s. This entering our atmosphere
can wreck havoc on the electrical power grid and fry electronic
“Like most experts in the field, Hathaway has confidence in the conveyor belt model and agrees with Dikpati that the next solar maximum should be a doozy. But he disagrees with one point. Dikpati’s forecast puts Solar Max at 2012. Hathaway believes it will arrive sooner, in 2010 or 2011.”
An experiment: Take a magnet and pick up a piece of iron, then heat the magnet with a match it will loose it magnetism and the iron will fall. This simple observation tells me that that if the center of the earth is molten then the earth’s magnetism (protective magnetic field) must be in the iron on the surface. So if global warming is for real, then as the earth’s surface heats up it’s magnetism will loose strength and give us less protection from the solar storms.
When the Sun Stands Still.
The name is derived from Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still),
because at the solstice, the Sun stands still in declination, that is,
its movement north or south is minimal. The sun rises each morning by 1
degree completing it’s 360 day yearly cycle. The exception is the Spring
and Winter solstices. At each solstice the sun does not move a degree
for about 3 days. This seems to be why the 365 day calendars of
old time were calculated on 360 days a year with holydays separated and
The Sun Moves Eastward through the zodiac daily. In 365 days, the sun moves through 360°, averaging about per day. The sun’s motion means the stars rise 4 minutes earlier each night, or 2 hours earlier per month. On December the 21st. the sun rises 1 degree then the 22nd., 23rd., and 24th. the sun rises in relatively the same place, it is said to be dead. On December the 25th. the sun is said to be “born” (Christmas) and starts growing in strength and light as the year continues. The Sun (Son) of God is Born on December 25!
The 2012 Winter Solstice takes place on December 21, at 11:11 Universal Time.
The 11:11 is covered as an occult reference to the solar cycles and the time of the winter solstice in the year 2012.
The Procession of the Equinox
The twelve Sectors of the Zodiac are named according to the 12
constellations: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra,
Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Aries which marks
the beginning at zero degrees, and arriving at 360° which marks the end
of Pisces. The passage from one sector to another occurs precisely every
thirty degrees. We currently live in the Age of Pisces, the Fish. Simply
put, that means that for the last 2000 years give or take a bit, the sun
sets with the constellation Pisces as it’s backdrop in the heavens.
Prior to that, from around 2000 BC until the time of Jesus, the Sun was
in Aires, the Lamb. Prior to that, from about 4000BC to 2000 it was in
Taurus the Bull. Previous to Taurus the sun was in Gemini and so on.
The procession of the equinox, from beginning to end takes 25,920 years and the sun in each house lasts about 2,160 years.
The Age of Gemini ended with the killing of a twin (Cain murders Abel) about 4,327 BC.
The Age of Taurus ended with the slaying of the Bull (Nimrod Hercules) about 2,167 BC.
The Age of Aries ended with the slaying of the Lamb (Jesus Christ) about 7 BC.
The Age of Pisces ends with the slaying of the Fish (Church) in 2012 AD.
Washed in the Water of Aquarius and Not the Blood
A New Paradigm
During the Age of Taurus, many human religions were based on Bull (Calf) worship as Taurus was the Great Bull in the skies. During that time, humans were symbolically and sometimes literally washed in the blood of the bull as a religious right of passage and for the remission of their sins.After this age had passed and the Bull was slain, the Age of Aries came to be in the heavens. Around the time of Abraham to be exact and when he offered the lamb in place of his son, the age began in literary terms. It is not coincidence that the new Age of Aires the Lamb ends just as did the Age of Taurus the Bull, but not with the slaying of the Bull. Rather, it was the slaying of the Lamb that ended the Age of Aries the Lamb.
The Age of Pisces began around the time of the early Christian Church. This is because the SUN is now in the constellation of Pisces and has been for 2000 years which is now abut to end and become the Age of Aquarius the Water Bearer. Isn’t it interesting that our most endangered species at the end of the age of Pisces are the fish on the planet and the water in which they used to thrive?
Whether by over fishing or pollution, our “Pisces” are dying and their
age is ending. The Christian Church, symbolized by the Fish is also in
trouble and suffering it’s own pollution problems.The new priesthood
will not be based on blood sacrifices. They will not base their truth on
the Bible or that which is symbolized by the Age of the Lamb or the
Church of the Fish, that is Christianity as we know it today. The new
Priesthood may be scientists who bring us the truth about water and how
it has memory and is as mysterious and life giving as the blood of past
ages seemed to mankind. “The life is in the blood” is the anthem of
Christianity. “The life is in the water” may be the cry of a new
paradigm just as real as the blood of the Lamb was during this past age.
Today a bottle of water in the store costs more that the gas in your automobile. We are moving into the time of the Water Bearer, Luke 22:8-10, “And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.”
The End of the World (Age)
The New Age begins as the Sun dies at sunset (Set) on December 21, 2012
(the last day of the Mayan calendar) and is reborn at sunrise (Horus is
Rising) December 25, 2012 and Rises in the New House of Aquarius at
11:11 UT (The Most High Ra).
We are being told, in around about way, of the coming New Age. Some keys are watching the demise of traditional Christianity, the rise of new and strange religions, the revealing of occult (hidden) symbols and messages, and the changes in the heavens.
Luke 21:25-28 “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”
Aquarius is ruled by the planet Saturn, who is Nimrod or Satan. The stars probably do not have anything to do with but there are superstitious people in high places who try and control the destiny of the chattle (slaves) on this earth. The reign of Saturn was celebrated by the poets as the Golden Age which was later celebrated by the Romans as Saturnalia. You will notice the term Golden Age throughout your search of the New Age, it may be a Golden Age for some but astrologically Saturn is associated with the principles of limitation, restrictions, boundaries, practicality and reality, crystallizing and structures. Saturn governs ambition, career, authority and hierarchy, and conforming social structures. It concerns a person’s sense of duty, discipline and responsibility, and their physical and emotional endurance during hardships. As the years go by, who will determine what our duty and sense of responsibility is?
I believe all the answers are in our Bible and it is a matter of searching them out.
Jesus said, Matthew 28:20, “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, [even] unto the end of the world (age). Amen”
