We’re About to Go Off the Map

Dear Friend and Reader: The third week of December has been, at least, the last week of the Mayan 13th baktun — a span of time within the Long Count that dates back to 3114 BCE, or 5,125 years. By human standards, that’s a vast reach, encompassing 1,872,000 days. A baktun is 144,000 days, though … Read more

The Mayans, Juno and the Abyss

Dear Friend and Reader: It’s time for yet another visit with the chart for 12/21/12 before the event itself.

Yet it was also … Read more

I’ve watched the film perhaps 10 times and in the course of studying it scene by scene, David … Read more

Something About Juno

Dear Friend and Reader: The long-anticipated winter solstice of 2012 is now just weeks away. I may be one of the few people who has been considering the 2012 issue for 25 years who did not make a religion out of this event, which marks the end of the 13th baktun of the Mayan long … Read more

A Whole Lotta Scorpio

Dear Friend and Reader: The Sun will be in Scorpio for a couple of more days, though this is no ordinary journey of the Sun through this sign. Last week we experienced the first eclipse of the Sun in Scorpio since 1995. At the same time, Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio. Over the weekend we … Read more

The Affairs of Captain America

Dear Friend and Reader: Everything in the world was proceeding normally and calmly as usual, and life was simple — that is, until Andrea Mitchell, NBC’s chief foreign affairs correspondent, interrupted MSNBC’s regular programming last Friday afternoon (Nov. 9) at 2:51 pm EST with the news that David Petraeus, the chief of the CIA, had … Read more
