Astrologist Pavel Globa are skeptical about predictions of an apocalypse that is to happen in 2012 according to the Maya calendar.
Yet, he do think that new war conflicts are possible.
“We cannot speak about the apocalypse, but it could be a crisis of consciousness for the Maya descendants,” said Pavel Globa, a popular Russian astrologist at a round table in Moscow on Tuesday.
“ The issue of the apocalypse is in our minds. I’m not that familiar with the Maya calendar, but if it is accepted, it works on a level of the absolute unconscious.
You have to remember, however, that the calendar is not a primary thing, “Interfax cited Globa’s words.
According to the Maya calendar, in 2012 we will be completing the Fifth Sun and entering the Sixth Sun.
“In terms of cosmic cycles, 2012 is no different than 2010, yet it might be an interesting year for Russia.
In the fall of 2012 Saturn will enter Scorpio and within the period between September 2008 and October 8, a large cross will shape in the sky.
This cross may mark a breaking point when issues associated with wars are possible, “the astrologist said.
He provided empirical evidence and analogies. In particular, he mentioned that in the end of the 15 century, everyone was waiting for an apocalypse that was to happen in 1497, and in the fall of 1498 Columbus discovered America.
Another participant of the round table, Michael Levin, provost of the Academy of Astrology, also noted that “the calendar is secondary in terms of Earth’s time.”
As for the crisis of consciousness predicted for 2012, the astrologist suggested that it lasts for thousands of years and usually goes unnoticed.
“Years 2012, and 2017 through 2020, are a new crop on earth, and I am not expecting any global changes in the history of mankind. We will reap the results in thousands of years,” Levin said. He brought the history on Christianity as an example.
“Thousands of years ago the Great Roman Empire should have looked at Judaea more closely. At that time no one knew that the new religion will spread all over the world and that the Roman Empire was to collapse,” he said.
