Don Alejandro and the 31st of March 2013

I see there is some interest in the Mayan predictions for the end of March this year.

After the build-up to the 21st of December last year – and nothing happening, I might add – most people have abandoned the subject.

Still, several astute students noticed that the Long Count ended in the middle of the tzolkin, the Maya’s 260-day calendar. And some have realized that perhaps the final day of that calendar might be of interest.

Actually, the Maya mystic, Don Alejandro, spoke about this date as early as the mid 1990’s as a very special day. He said the Sun would experience an eclipse.

But not just any eclipse.

This eclipse was supposed to last 60 to 70 hours not the several minutes usually allotted for this phenomenon.

Some people do not understand what this “eclipse” thing has to do with anything. Readers of my volume 12-20-2012; Our Last Golden Sunset? (posted on this blog in December 2012) will know the answer to that question. It is at the heart of the entire Mayan corpus concerning the Sun Ages.

Yes, “Sun Ages”. Not “New Age” or “Golden Age” as many writers on the subject would have you believe.

When they wrote about the New Sun – the ending of one and the birth of a New Sun – they meant exactly that: the death of the Sun… and the birth of a New Sun.

This is the simplest way to describe what they saw happen in the past and what they predicted for the future. The Sun will seem to go dark for a time before it is reborn as a “new” Sun.

I am not certain where Don Alejandro got the duration for the event as the ancient Maya indicate the previous time it happened the Sun was dark for a considerably longer period.


Still, will it happen on the 31st of March?

Maybe so.

If our calendar is correctly aligned with their tzolkin, it might be so.

But we really won’t know for sure until the 31st of March.

Or perhaps not until the next day, commonly called “April Fool’s Day”.


And that is not intended as a joke.
