12/21/12 Meaning and Mayan Calendar End of the World Beliefs

By @jotfields on

Some people believe in superstitions, some people stick to facts and science. Others try to marry the two regardless of what everyone says.

"Whatever helps you sleep at night," so they say. Could the meaning of 12/21/12 reassure anyone there won't be a Dec. 21 doomsday this year? Since a calendar date is concerned, there is something in numerology.com for those who are curious.

Mayan Calendar End of the World: Scientists Try to Reassure Public

Scientists emphasize the Mayans never determined with certainty that the world will end on Dec. 21. In a video, NASA showed what the "new cycle" meant for the Mayans. Many scientists have spoken about their various insights on the matter. They have been trying to reassure everyone there is no threat to Earth in the space for the remainder of the year.

NASA even has a dedicated web page for frequently asked questions on Mayan calendar and end of the world. Still, questions remain in the minds of those who just couldn't be complacent.

12/21/12 Meaning in Numerology

In Numerology, the basic number symbol for Dec. 21 is 2, the number for symmetry and balance. To arrive at 2, get the sum of 12, 21, and 2012 (2045). Then add the digits 2 + 0 + 4 + 5 (11). Finally, your mind goes back to the typical first math question ever: one plus one.

Both 12/12/12 and 12/21/12 have the number 2 as a base number. "The 12.12.12 is the gateway to what will transpire on 12.21.12," says the new age web site simon7d.com. However, nothing of worldwide note happened that day. So there is not much to hang on to in number 2. Perhaps one can look at the numerology for the year, then?

"With the vibrant, rebellious, and unconventional 5 entering the picture and bombarding every aspect of life for all of 2012, those who have difficulty accepting change will face a harder path... You'll be just fine," writes Hans Decoz of numerology.com. His writing focuses on the year 2012, thus 2+0+1+2=5.

There are three operative words here: symmetry, balance, change - nothing about the world's end.
