The 2020 to 2025 Energy Outlook

This is an excerpt of an article titled2012 to 2020: Why the World has Become so Polarised (Updated)

There is an important energy trend in the Mayan Calendars that also applies to the 20 year “double-decade” (katun) period that we are in right now (‘Katun 2 Ahau’, from 2012 – 2032) and this is worth taking note of as we move into the 2020’s.

The energy flow rises and falls in a wave-like motion in Maya Calendar ages (regardless of whether the ages are long or short). The energy of an age starts to climb the energy pyramid at the beginning of the age, reaches its peak at its mid-point, and then descends on the other side. 

What that means within the context of a katun-age is that the energy grows in intensity during the first half for 10 years, peaks during the 10th and 11th years, and declines again afterwards for 10 years. The years surrounding the peak years would all be potent in terms of being influenced by the energy of the age.

Calendar Refresher: 

The Maya Short Count calendar is a 256 year cycle that assigns a specific symbol called a tone to each of its thirteen 20 year (19.7 to be exact) katuns. This number denotes certain aspects of a katun’s energy. For example, in the current katun, 2 symbolizes duality and polarity (among other characteristics). 

The previous katun, from 1993 to 2012. had tone 4  assigned to it, which represented stability and order (tone 4 is known to be one most stable energies in the Maya calendars). An immediate observation that can be made is that at the transition point in 2012 the energies shifted metaphysically from stability to polarity and that is how it has played out in reality too there has been a huge increase in polarization and social upheaval since 2012. 

The next six years, from 2020 to 2025 (as illustrated in the energy pyramid above), will have the most intense energy in this twenty year energy pyramid. This means that we may well be entering a period of high turbulence and volatility if the trend of growing social and political polarization in societies in recent years is anything to go by …

According to this energy model the energy intensity should start to decline again from around 2026 onward. Some may find this information useful in terms of doing the neccesary mental or spiritual preparation for turbulent times (please see resources below).

Notes:

The rising and falling of energy in the Maya calendars (there are close to 20 of them) is a general trend in the Maya calendars, although it might not affect all cycles equally.

Another aspect to the energy pyramid is that (in some cycles) during the energy incline the progression is more materialistic and during the energy decline it is more spiritual, so consciousness would shift from a more materialistic outlook in the first half to a more spiritual outlook in the second half. This may also be the case during this katun, with a subtle shift possibly happening in 2022. An illustration of this material to spiritual trend during  a Tracena (a 13 day Maya calendar week) is illustrated and explained on this page by Mark Elmy in Guatemala:
https://thefourpillars.net/?p=6675

The gradient of the rising and falling energy would not be as steep as depicted in the energy pyramid illustrated above (this was done due to limited space on the page). The change in energy would usually be very gradual and shift over time, which is why people are often not aware of it happening.

Although I have done my best to keep this information factual, these views should be considered my own. A more detailed analysis about rising and falling energy (with references) can be found in my essay: The Valley of Shadows in the Landscape of Light.

The Fifth Earth (Part 4) – What Does the Future Hold?

What does the future hold? 

“It was halfway famine, it was  halfway  feast” [1]

This is the translation of the original Maya prophecy for Katun 2 Ahau (2012 – 2032). In this article and the next one we will match this prophecy with real trends and we will make realistic forecasts for the next fifteen years.

Physical energy configurations such as fossil fuel resources and renewable energies will be factored in and we will make predictions for how human beings are likely to respond to the challenges facing them in the coming years.

Having the right attitude

If we are internally (spiritually, mentally and psychologically) prepared for the external material changes in the world, they will appear to be positive, and our approach to them would be pro-active, courageous, responsible, motivated and engaging.

As above: spiritually / internally

So below: materially / externally

If we are not internally prepared for external changes in the world, on the outside they would appear to us as negative, disastrous, calamitous and unfair, and our approach would be that of fear, denial, evasion, resistance, victimhood and escapism. 

A Concise Prophecy

The first thing that we notice about the prophecy for Katun 2 Ahau is that it is reasonably short: “It was halfway famine, it was  halfway  feast” [1]. This is actually the portion of the prophecy that is considered the most important  part by translators. The rest of the prophecy consists of some additional sentences and we will touch on them later.

Edmonson’s version comes across as less symbolic than other translations as he has already applied some interpretation to the symbolism, which serves the objectives of this article well as we will use it as a reference point for the rest of our discussion.

The Valley of Shadows in The Landscape of Light

After Dark

So-called “dark ages” are not only dark. They are also light. Although we tend to view dark ages with some trepidation, or perhaps even with fear, they serve an important role. It is during dark times that we seek out our own light and the light of others. It is dark times that show up the shadows in the world and bring them to the surface. It is only by being confronted by darkness that we can truly aspire to light. Thus, from darkness comes light.

One cycle leads to another and one prepares us for the other. In other words, the whole process should be approached with a certain attitude: An understanding that cycles, whether light or dark, are evolutionary in nature and in purpose, and that we are able to work with these energies, either way.

The Mayan Fifth World, a 5125 year great cycle that started at the end of 2012  is said to hold immense opportunity for spiritual growth. Presently we are still transitioning into the Fifth World, while slowly pulling out of the Fourth. By seeing the opportunities that this transition holds for personal transformation, we can all become conscious co-creators of the new world as we transition into it.

Knowing the Energies

By knowing the characteristics of energies we are able to know how to work with them. Knowing them can allow us to step over some of their negative manifestations and we can know how to fully experience and gain from their positive influences. This happens by honoring the symbolism of the energies by integrating their purpose in our thought processes and by applying that to our daily living. When we don’t know about these energies we are at their disposal rather than the other way around.

The easiest way for newcomers to the Mayan calendars to start knowing the archetypes that embody the energies is to follow the sacred Tzolkin calendar on a daily basis. This opens up a broader understanding of the cyclical nature and the interactions of the characteristics of the various energies with each other. For example, the continuity from one cycle to the next becomes apparent and the repetitive nature of them in an altered form every time, in a gradual never-ending, cyclical linear progression of renewal, eventually comes into vision.

Excerpts:

Mayan Mythology and Symbolism

The Mayan Calendar constitutes at least three calendars in contemporary terms and they are used to map different cycles. For the sake of brevity and simplicity we can summarize that the most important thing to know about the Mayan calendar system is that time is cyclical. As cycles return they tend to have the same characteristics and features. In that sense similar events can be expected to happen again. Mayan shamans can therefore make reasonably accurate forecasts within symbolic and archetypal contexts. Western scholars can attempt to do the same, but with varying results. Some of the symbolism can be misinterpreted by them, or taken too literal, or the cycles and dates are sometimes mixed up.

The Rise and Fall of Consciousness

In the Mayan creation story , the Popol Vuh [7], the sky “drops” (“falls”) at the end of each world cycle. It is then raised again. So far the sky has been raised four times and we are currently in the space between ages before the next sky is raised. As a thought experiment: if we take “the sky” as a metaphor for human consciousness, then the sky “falling” takes on significant meaning: At the end of each 5200 year world age, as consciousness diminishes; systems, structures and thought processes related to it, become unstable or “challenged”. Subsequently they start to show strain or start to crumble. The consciousness aligned to the old energetic direction would be out of sync with the new incoming direction.

Interpretations:

We could speculate that generally speaking, the outward and inward moving energies contain more or less the following characteristics in terms of identity, and that we have already observed some of these (surprising to some) movements in recent world events such as Brexit and in the United States’ presidential elections:

The Fifth World

Post 2012 and The Fifth World

Prior to December 2012, scores of Mayan calendar enthusiasts, authors and scholars had put forward a plethora of predictions, forecasts and interpretations about what would or could happen around certain dates in 2012. The dates, when they finally arrived,  were accentuated by the fact that nothing of note happened. There were no signs that the long awaited and highly anticipated new golden age was about to commence, as had been fervently predicted. Neither did major earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes or floods occur worldwide (all at once!)

Transition stages between 5200 year world ages are meant to take approximately 120 years [1].  Changes happening during such long transition periods are therefore very unlikely to become apparent “on day one”. However, such were the expectations in December 2012 that something was going to happen, that there were people who took the day or week off from work, while others headed to the countryside “just in case” [2]. The majority of people, however, took a sober view and brushed it all off as superstition.

In retrospect, a lot of people may be wondering why so many people responded so “irrationally” in 2012. From a depth-psychology point of view, the 2012 “mass psychological event” was much more than just mere superstition. It was a reflection of the power of the “archetype of the end”. This archetype was identified by well known Swiss psychoanalyst, C.G. Jung back in the 1950’s. [3]

There must have been something that had made a major impression upon the human psyche (repetitively) for this archetype to be so deeply embedded in the collective subconscious (aka collective unconscious) and to make such a strong mass appearance every now and again. From a Jungian perspective all archetypes have purpose and in this case, the archetype was a message from the collective subconscious of humanity that major change was upon us (within a decade or two).

The Fifth Element

The Fifth Element

 *For background on the Mayan Fifth World and the Fifth Element, please see: The Mayan World Tree

Enter the Fifth Element

Five years have passed since December 2012; we are five years into the Mayan Fifth World and the Fifth Element has entered the scene. We are in a new age of transparency and below-the-surface shadows are bound to be illuminated while submerged debris is likely to float to the top. Whatever is hidden may be exposed and the only way to deal with this alchemical process, is to put one’s own inner house in order.

While there are people who have already been introspecting by way of traditional or spiritual practices, serious self-observation or deeper inner reflection may be something relatively new to others. However, as time passes, not exposing one’s true self will become increasingly difficult. This may be positive news for people who already live from their authentic selves, while it could turn out to be a somewhat uncomfortable experience for those who have not developed their natural identity.

Typically, individuals and groups who avoid facing their inner shadow(s), tend to project them onto others. The objective is to divert attention away from their shadows (and what they are up to). This is a well-know psychological phenomenon. However, in an age of added transparency, such projections would become more obvious. As one finger points to others, three fingers point back. This causes the emperors to wear no clothes by exposing themselves, while remaining oblivious of the fact.

This is the first part of a ‘miniseries’: an article published in parts. To be continued soon…
