December 21, 2012 Fact or Fiction?

Dark SunWill the entire year 2012 bring an entire finish? It’s a hot and highly debatable subject could it be the finish around the globe or beginning of the Golden Era? A doomsday or spiritual awakening? We don’t know without a doubt. You will find a variety of prophecies and ideas concerning the year 2012, doing models.

Mayan calendars points to, major cosmic event happening on 12 , 21, 2012 and it may be the finish around the globe. A Mayan calendar, used by lots of cultures in Guatemala till today, is thought to become very scientific and accurate. The Lengthy count calendar of Mayans finishes on December 12, 2012. Does the date about the calendar ending means doomsday? Based on Mayans, it marks the finish of the age around 2012 then a brand new beginning. It might also imply that some devastation may happen but it won’t be the finish of people.

Our Sun´s Dark Twin
Nemesis is a brown dwarf, unlit sun, which is the other part of our binary solar system. Planet X Nibiru´s 3600 year elliptical orbit is easily understood, explained, and justified by the reality of nemesis.

What’s interesting is always that Hindu calendars also corroborate the Mayan forecasts though these two civilization had no connection with one another. Based on Hind scriptures, the planet experiences 4 procedures in a cycle. They feel the year 2012 could mean the finish of KaliYuga (Dark Era) and mark the start of Sitting Yuga. Within this yug, humans will undergo a spiritual awakening and Golden Age will start. For the reason that age, the planet won’t be material based but spiritual based. Individuals will escape from material things and also the importance is going to be on placing ‘others before self’. Similar view is marketed by Sri Kalki Bhagawan and also the Golden Age Foundation who organize the Oneness festival.

THIS YEAR, in 2011? In Awakening As One´s new film ”The Quickening” we will explain why so many people have been experiencing the sensation that ”Time is Speeding Up”; particularly since the Earthquake in Japan. And we will also show how research indicates that this accelerated experience of reality could peak sometime around October 28th, 2011; culminating in a global experience of Unity Consciousness, which would then lead to the experience of a harmonious new way of being. ”The Quickening” will also take a look at the unfolding of current events and how they directly relate to Hopi and Mayan Prophecies, indicating

Now we are able to go ahead and take scientific take on it. It’s seen that sun experiences a pole change or magnetic reversal every 11 many it next cycle arrives for that year 2012. But throughout this time around, Saturn and Jupiter may also be in line plus they could cause the sun’s rays to shake throughout the change. The magnetic rods of earth are consistent with suns rods along with a change could cause a general change in earth’s magnetic rods too. Consequently, it might bring massive disturbances on the planet. The sea level may rise and result in a tsunami like situation with major parts immersed under water. Our planet may witness volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.

We’re not sure exactly what the year 2012 brings. But anything, we ought to believe that we’re fortunate to witness this kind of event, whether it happens.

  • Brian:

    I feel that we depend to much on power and material and I think that it will bring us into a new ice age by that time, and we will have to start all over basically. But that comment that skywalker left sounds believable. I think it will be a bad and a good time for us we will awakened into a cold but very bright era.

    I have to say something about the “cosmic event”. It’s also believed that the Mayans may have said that because it is theorized that the date of December 21,2012 is when the North Star’s (Polaris’s) Supernovae light will reach earth and we will she the supernova of it.

  • Steve:


    I don’t think this will be the way it happens but who am I to say.
    Solar flares are nonexistent. The sun is utterly quiet.

    if th world is going to end we cant do anything about but who knows ……. well no one realy if we do reach a golden age then life will only get better so keep living your life the way you are now and when the time comes look to the sky.

  • Starman:

    allot of you guys make a great case and are very versed …….. “I” added to the above the religious viewpoint of the LAST jubilee(Jewish 50 yr segment)that will end about 2019 and then took the christian look of the 7 year tribulation, subtracted that and came up with 2012 and inserted the Myan (and others) outlook of “spiritual transformation” put that together with the “rapture” of the “new testament” and think that maybe the Rapture will be about the same time period as the 2012 cosmic event. Lie someone said above ….. look up ALL events – cosmic in coordination with religious history …… and with todays world “look around” – it’s time for a good cleansing of the human spirit :-)

  • eric:

    Well, as impressed as I am by all intellegent comments on this topic, it would have been vastly more convincing had they been spelled correctly and written coherently. Perhaps the rarified air that such geniuses have been breathing reduces their ability to communicate or maybe such babbling should just be ignored. Can any of you scientist even understand the insignificance of a magnetic reversal or a planetary conjunction. These are events that happen, in stellar terms, frequently. No extinctions have ever been associated with either. Meanwhile, money-grubbing hucksters are always looking for new angles to exploit. In recent years they sold books on the millenium doomsday, comets in the 90′s, eathquakes in the 80′s, and lets not forget the sudden ice age foretold not even 5 years ago. Why do we give so much attention to those that cry wolf as they pick our pocket (39.99 in hard back; 9.95 in pb). Why do we spend so much energy looking for the end. We have brought ourselves from the wild and tamed it to our will. We need not fear the dark, but explore it, bring light to it, and make it our home.

  • hahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahha dis some true shit

  • random guy:

    yur blog says something like this-
    “During this time jupiter and saturn will also be in alinement.” it has happend like a bazillion times before and never have the contenants flooded.





  • MurderScene:

    …Although some good points are brought up in this document such as grammar and stupidity. Has anyone stopped to think about it truly? I mean what if the mayans got lazy like the rest of humanity? What if it all is just an excuse to start some big epidemic where everyone is freaking out over something that wont fucking happen, like eric commented on here, its all just a big fake ass fucking rumor to make the world freak out about an end that wont happen for millions of years to come. so instead of digging a fucking bunker in your back yard like some lunatic bitch, focus more on the problems around us, we are fighting a war over sea’s, neither obama or bush are worth a shit, kids are starving all over the earth, people are getting fucking shot over stupid reasons such as drugs, or hatred. Everyone in the world needs to open their fucking eyes and see that an allignment in the planets is not gonna bring our end. Our petty highschool-drama-bullshit is what is gonna bring us down.

  • Kenny Smith:

    The saddest thing about the whole dec 21 2012 deal is this. Worry as you might, your all going to have to show up for work on Dec 22 2012 with no excuse except for falling for the same thing idiots have fallen for every decade when doomsday came around

  • We need a change:

    I have heard the world was ending so many times before and have decided that this is another stunt to get us all spending our money and checking things off the bucket list so our economy will start to stabalize again.

  • Aron:

    HIGHER IQ THEN U, here is why you are a moron. You speak of flooding and rain, then talk about building a bunker. Well where do you think all that water is gonna go Einstein?…. That’s right, into your Wal Mart filled bunker. Killing you and your 8 kids. Not to mention the Pit Bull I’m sure you have.

    Eric hit the nail on the head. This is just a way that government and industry make money. Feeding us scare tactics and lies. One more I’ll add to his list of B.S. is Global Warming, which has had it’s title switch to Climate Change. No matter, as it’s just another way Washington and Wallstreet can indirectly suck money from us. Remember Y2K? Yeah we’re still recovering from that catastrophe-crock-of-crap.

    If the Mayan’s were so freaking brilliant then why aren’t there any trying out for Central American Soccer teams? Why aren’t there any working at HIGHER IQ THEN U’s Wal-Mart store? It’s because they were wiped out by the Spanish. Perhaps if they could have seen that coming they would still be here to snicker at all the simpletons shaking in their boots because of an eclipse.

    The World does need change. It’s full of narcissistic Hipsters interested merely in self preservation and self importance. Unfortunately the end will not come from the planets aligning or the sun letting out some flatulence. Man will be the demise of himself. When we are all to concerned about ourselves and our possessions. When we are all too self centered to care for anything other then ourselves, our Facebook page, and our Blackberries, then the end is near.

    What are they going to sell us after this?

  • Colin:

    Hi All, Some of you have very valid points, what i dont understand is why anyone cares, what is going to happen is going to happen, there is not a thing you can do about it. Live life to the fullest so if anything does happen then at least you can say well i had fun. Dont be stupid and build a bunker. We did when we die, just enjoy life. Grammer and spelling may not be correct for some of you but honestly who cares.

9 Steps In Making Fundraising Calendars

9 Steps In Making Fundraising Calendars

Fundraising calendars are excellent ideas. These can help your group or organization raise the money you need to carry out the activities you have planned. These fundraising calendars can be sold before the year ends. There is a likelihood that a lot of people will buy these as presents and giveaways. If you wish to create fundraising calendars, here are the steps you need to take.

1. Work on the over-all theme of your fundraising calendars. You may want to start by outlining what you want your receivers to know about your group or organization, the cause you are working on, or who will benefit from the raised funds.

2. Choose images, illustrations or photographs that you would like your fundraising calendars to have. If you do not have stock photos, you can take pictures on your own. You can also get stock images over the internet. Just make sure that these are royalty-free.

3. Download the design elements that are needed in making the design template. Get font styles over the internet, for example, which can make your fundraising calendars more visually appealing. Aside from that, get brushes, patterns and other design elements that you can use.

4. Create the design template. You can ask a graphic designer for his or her services. If you know a graphic designer who can do the job for free, the better. Provide your design theme in mind. Let your graphic designer work on how the fundraising calendars will look like.

5. You may want to use pages of your fundraising calendars for messages. Compose the messages that your calendars will contact. If you can ask a writer to do so, better. Otherwise, take your time working on the content and edit it accordingly.

6. Do not afraid to make revisions. Once your graphic designer and you have decided on a working template, be updated with recent developments. Stick with the designs, so you can avoid setbacks, but do not be afraid to make revisions if necessary.

7. Print samples of your fundraising calendars. You may just end up surprised once these have been printed en masse with all the errors in design and text. Thus, before you send your files to the printed, have a print test. Take a look at every portion and see what needs to be revised.

8. Get a reputable commercial printer. Even if you come up with a great template for fundraising calendars if the actual print does not do any justice to it, then you fail in your endeavor. That is why when choosing a commercial printer, do a thorough research. If the printing facility is located near you, take a visit and see what they are capable of.

9. Work in advance. Be reminded that you have to produce your fundraising calendars before December! The last months of the year should be for distribution. Thus, even if its not yet even the second half of the year, you should already be working on the design theme. Conduct a brainstorming activity with your co-members, and find out what your group would like to offer.

When making fundraising calendars, make sure that you invest on quality materials. you do not have to pay a considerable amount of money for this. Take advantage of discounts. Find out if there are commercial printers that offer such promos.

Your Questions About Planet Alignment

Your Questions About Planet Alignment

William asks…

Why is it so important for us to keep our space exploration going?

Could it just be that: Why is it, do you suppose that we as Americans have this fascination with space? I mean sure its interesting to think about where you are in alignment with the rest of the planets and to look out and see a place “where no man has gone before!” But think about how much money in taxes and government funded programs America spends every year on NASA? How much? And why? Why is America and the higher ups so enthralled with the fucking space thing? Think of how much money could be well spent on all of the other problems we have as a country? How in-debt are we? How many billions of dollars?
I’ll tell you why the money is spent and why research is being so over killed in-depth: “because our government is searching for another planet!” Yes they are indeed because they know that this ones going to be ruined pretty soon and they are looking for logical ways of escaping. What better way to escape a problem “due to the green house gasses being released through fossil fuels and the utter reliance of fossil fuels” than to say fuck earth, I’m goin’ to mars.
And of course not everybody’s goin’ to Mars you know. Only the extremely wealthy and the politicians, everybody else is going to drown in the melted ice caps! And why should they care, they’ll be eating’ their freeze-dried ice-cream caviar and space fucking!
And the best part is that we are funding this expedition everyday when we get up and go to work and get our checks that have been both State and Federally cut apart!

If the human race is going to evolve any further we must look for a new place to live. We are destroying this planet.

Charles asks…

If all the planets are in alignment is the gravity still the same on the moon?

Thank you Prncss-Prple I’m glad I can make you laugh.

MarekMuraze answers:

There’s never Gravity On the Moon, so yes the gravity is still the same as it was..None!

Sandy asks…

Is there any weird things going to happen in the sky for June-July? (like lunar eclispes & meteor showers)?

Like the solar eclispe that happened last night? And planet alignment things. Thanks! :)

MarekMuraze answers:

Eclipses, meteor showers, and alignments are not weird. They happen all the time.
Something weird would be like a ufo sighting. Yes, that would be weird.

Mary asks…

Do you agree that YA is absolutely rife with shocking spellers today?

Even more than usual. Must be a bad alignment of planets or something.

MarekMuraze answers:

Indeed. To my mind it’s a combination of poor education and a distinct lack of giving a toss.

Mandy asks…

Are there Physics people out there who can answer my questions?

I have a bunch of questions regarding the alignment of fictional planets I made up.

Is there a forum or something that I can post these Questions.

heres the jist
I want two green planets up close to each other.
so they can be seen on each others skies really up close.
I want both of them to be smaller than earth- 1/3 the size.
and one slightly bigger than the other.

I want both of them to be able to safely lay beside each other.
but to eventually collide.
what would happen if these two were to collide?
what would happen to gravity?
would it be possible for comets and loenids to flow backwards up the sky.

What would nightlight be like without a moon but with sunlight bouncing off a green planet.

How many days would be in each year?
how long would the days be?
what conditions would there need to be to make all this possible?
especially to make it that one of the planets had approx 40 days of pure what distance would the sun have to be?
Can I get some links and possibly some diagrams and co-ordinates?
40 DAYS OF PURE DARKNESS-I said 40 days of pure (oops!)
nope I’m no stoner.
I just want to base a story thats not on earth-most movies these days are based around New York and L.A
Even the lord of the rings was filmed in New Zealand and tolkiens story was based in a time and place based largely on earth.
Star Wars’s tatooine has two suns (oh wow! :( )
and all fantasy stories are based on fairy tales or the bible.
So I’m creating a place to base all my stories but first I wanted to investigate all the ins and outs instead of my astronomy being totally off!

MarekMuraze answers:

If you assume that the sun is the same sort of sun as ours, and that you want the same sort of temperatures on the planets, then you’ll want them to be the same distance from the sun as earth is, so the year will be the same as ours, 365 Earth days.

Your two planets are just like our earth/moon system except that they are closer to each other, so they will rotate around each other more quickly, and they are more equal in size – Earth is 81 times the mass of the moon, but yours are almost equal.

The month will be shorter because they are closer together. You can choose a value yourself for the length of the month.

You can have two possibilities for day: either the two planets rotate independently, and you can set the days on the two planets to anything you like, or they are locked together so that the day length is equal to the month length, and each planet will always keep the same face towards the other. In this case, the planet will always appear in the same position in the sky, as the Earth does when you are on the moon.

The best thing you can do is to study the Earth ./ Moon system and see what way it turns. Then you can do something similar or different to your imaginary system.

Your Questions About Planets Align 2012

Paul asks…

Will we all die in 2012?

Because like everyone says we will, and i don’t want to die! im only 14 :( I WANNA AT LEAST DRIVE >:( So will we die? If so, prove it! How will we die in 2012? If at all…. Whats all that stuff about the planets all aligning and stuff? Plz answer :) Oh, and does it really say where gona die in the bible?

MarekMuraze answers:

Err.. I don’t think so. Outside the world of American middle schools, people have either never heard of it or pay no attention because they’ve heard it all before.
Take a look around. Where are all the newspaper reports of imminent disaster in 2012? Why is this never on the TV news? There are two possibilities.
1) The only people who are aware that anything is expected to happen are new-age crazies and conspiracy nutcases. Every intelligent person in the world has somehow missed all the signs.
2) Nothing will happen and the whole thing is a hoax by people who love to attract attention, scare others and make money from the gullible.
Now tell me honestly. Which do you think is the more likely?

Mandy asks…

Is it the end of the world on December 21, 2012?

According to Nostradamus’ Quatrains and Falcenius’ (not sure if spelled right) symbols that other people (i forgot their specific names) tried to decipher, said that all of these things that happened in the past are warnings; such as Hurricane Katrina and the Tsunami. And not only these two people are saying it, although the bible doesn’t clearly say when…it still mentioned something about the judgement day; that “it” is coming and we have to prepare.

The people who tried to read the symbols said that on December 21, 2012 the planets including Earth will all be aligned and therefore since all planets have gravity they will pull each other and that to Earth will cause shaking that leads to earthquake, tsunami, and other terrifying things…which then the deciphers said it is either “1.) the end of the world” or “2.) something will happen like some sort of a new beginning, a new age” as it is said.

My question is, do you believe on this at all? I mean…I know the issue about Y2K was just the deciphers misreading a word which they thought was the end of the world, but this…they can’t be wanting another mistake right? So they must have really made sure the symbols were what they were exactly saying. What do yo upeople think?


MarekMuraze answers:

It’s just the end of the cycle for the Mayan calendar, nothing more. There will be a December 22, 2012, as well as a December 23rd and December 24th. People like speculating about the end of the world. In some screwy way, it comforts them to think that there are ways of predicting the end. I don’t understand it, myself. To me, it’s just pure superstition.

Thomas asks…

when was the last time all of the planets were aligned with the moon?

I’m not asking about anything that has to do with 2012 and all that crap ’cause honestly I could care less so I don’t want any answers with any of that crap about 2012 and the rest of that story. I only want to know what year, approximately, all of the planets were aligned with the moon last. I was also wondering, around how often does it happen ’cause I heard somewhere that it happens every 50 years but I wasn’t sure ’cause I don’t know how reliable the source was so any answers on that would be greatly appreciated.

MarekMuraze answers:

That depends on what you mean by aligned. If you mean when were all the planets aligned in space from the Sun outward, the answer is never. I blieve the odds I read for that is once in 13 trillion years. This is because the planets’ orbits are not all on the same plane. When you add in the Moon, the odds are pretty much nonexistent.
If you mean the appearance of alignment across the sky, “One calculation of alignments within around thirty degrees (about as close as they can get) shows that the last such alignment was in 561 BC, and the next will be in 2854. All nine planets are somewhat aligned every 500 years, and are grouped within 30 degrees every 1 to 3 alignments.”
The reason they are saying “all 9 planets” is that this was written before Pluto was declared a dwarf planet.

Robert asks…

Wouldn’t 2012 be a lie?

I think that 2012 is a lie because there is something everyone seems to be over looking. It isnt really the FIRST time the planets have aligned.

MarekMuraze answers:

The planets can’t align since they orbit the Sun at slightly different angles. They can get close, about once every several hundred years and very close every umpteen gazillion years but they won’t even be close in December 2012. They were close to a line up in the late 1950s and nobody noticed anything, because their combined gravitational pull on the Earth is a tiny fraction of that of the Moon.

Every word you have read or heard, every website, TV show and YouTube clip predicting disaster in 2012 contains superstition, delusion, factual errors and/or direct lies. Given the quality of the evidence, the only days in the near future on which the world is certain not to end are in December 2012. See

Linda asks…

2012; last question?

The last one I asked was at like 2 or 3a.m.
So, I only got 4 answers.
Is there any new updates with this Mayan calender?
Have they figured out if it’s just the end of that calender?
Like that year is supposed to be like the year 2000 for us?
I heard it doesn’t say anything about the world ending.
Is it true that 2012 is the end of a smaller cycle consisting of a 260 years.Kinda like the end of a year for us?Has this been provein?I mean didn’t God say he wouldn’t destroy the earth again? After Noah?And the whole aligned planets thing has happened before right?We know thier math and all that other shit is advance,but maby this grate change has to do with their religion.I know this keeps getting asked but I’m just freaked out.I don’t care if I die that day.I’ll be 24,so I’ve pretty much lived my life.But I have a kid and he’ll be 8.It just don’t add up. Can someone give me some facts that’s from 2008, not 2007?
I mean is there any new facts with this mayan calender?Laste I’ll aske.

MarekMuraze answers:

God didnt say anything…
It’s just what was put into a book.
Manipulated thousands of times.

Nibiru Is real.

Most Of the People who dont believe it, is just because they havnt seen it theirselves and wont actually take time to search the facts. The Idea that There were other planets than earth was ridiculous until they found it out theirselves.

I’m sure that even without a degree in Rocket Science, any of us can understand just how the arrival of a planetary sized object would impact the forces being applied against this planet, would have a major impact. Of late, we’re seeing our weather patterns change; major earthquakes reaching 9.0; storm of the century – every other week (or so it would seem) and let’s not forget the sudden increase in activity of volcano’s. Usually everyone just thinks of their religion as superior and all right. The fact is, if you research you’ll find that the events of the Bible just don’t add up with the time these events are said to have occurred. Next, one must consider that the stories of Jesus are a retelling of Pagan myth. Osiris was also a man-god who was born of a virgin and carried out miracles (which by the way closely parallel those of Jesus nearly word-for-word). If you consider that the Pagan’s worshipped many gods and that this belief system dates back long before the Biblical times, the stories of the Sumerian Tablets start to take on a whole new meaning.It would make sense that we will see huge advancements over the next few years as we approach this 2012 deadline. It would also make sense to consider that anytime from now through 2012 that the Anunnaki may be close enough to actually travel in ships to Earth in limited numbers. It would make sense for them to assume that not much has changed since their previous visit. To those who come in advance of their planet, their discoveries may be quite unique. It may even be an Anunnaki who is the “anti-Christ”. It would make sense that the Anunnaki would choose the region of former Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) for their return. The predictions speak of the anti-Christ coming from this region and gaining power in the European Union. It speaks of nations coming against Israel.

On a side note, it adds a new light to why the United States and its allies chose to attack Iraq at this time in our history. Are they perhaps preparing for the return of the Anunnaki?

Our nations are working on space based initiatives for planetary defense. Ronald Reagan spoke of threats from outside of this world in one of his speeches. He was the first to suggest a space based missile system (Star Wars). It would seem that our Government’s are already interacting with Aliens. Look at the advancement in our technology over the past 100 years. Are we being prepped for Armageddon?

Are we in the end-times? That is merely a matter of personal perception. The Earth isn’t going to end in 2012 and neither is life. If the Anunnaki are an advanced race and if they return in 2012 en masse, civilization as we know it may change forever. Look at the events of the past and the cycle of these events. It is pretty likely that the fall of the advanced civilizations will in most cases correlate with the cycle of the Anunnaki. Look at Egypt; Atlantis and other great early cultures. What happened to them? Where did they go? Were they becoming too advanced and a threat to the Annunaki? Did those with an understanding of their place in the universe ascend leaving only the materialistic individuals to service the gods? Have we advanced far enough in this phase of existence to be enough of a challenge to the Anunnaki?

William asks…

A good website for Up-To-Date Astronomy/Space news?

Ok, so I have a huge interest in Astronomy, and i was wondering if there was a website i could find out about

updates from NASA (like there probes and what they are working on),

When there are events happening in the skies, like meteor showers, planet alignments.

And news about new planets and gallaxies being found.

I would appriciate it!
Thanks =)
These websites are great, Thanks!

MarekMuraze answers:

Here are some of my favorite Astronomical sites. I hope that you enjoy them! These should keep you busy for a while!



This one will alert you if the International Space Station is passing over you and when and where to look for it. It will also alert you of Iridium Flares too. Those are pretty cool and what most people mistake for UFO’s. They are actually just sunlight bouncing off of satellite panels but some are really bright.

Is there something in the air with the upcoming alignment of the planets??

It seems that there is a lot of cleaning house when it comes to relationships?? every day it is another long term relationship that is now ending ??? comments?? examples?? thoughts?
It just seems that it is more predominate at this time; sort of like the full moon effect ; I picked this section to see if it is just my inner circle of people and their relationships or really something out there ; this section would know !

Susan asks…

Is it true that all of the planets line up every 5000 years?

I was watching Lara Croft Tomb Raider and part of the plot is that every 5000 years all of the planets are in alignment. Is this true or just some bunky Hollywood tale?

MarekMuraze answers:

Hollywood tale.

Mind you, the “Great Alignment” used to justify the Grand Tour by the Voyager probes was simply having the outer planet in the same quadrant (meaning: within 90 degrees of a line). Hardly an “alignment”.

Such an alignment is said to occur every 176 years.

However, if you are looking for a perfect alignment of 8 planets on a line (let’s say within one degree in heliocentric longitude), then it takes longer than the lifetime of the solar system (billions of years).

A true alignment is impossible since planets are not on the same orbital planes (one planet would pass several degrees above or below another). For example, if Venus were on the same orbital plane as Earth, we would see transits (Venus passing in front of the Sun) every 584 days (every 1 y and 7 months or so). Instead, transits of Venus are relatively rare. And when is the last time you have heard of a transit of Venus that was simultaneous with a transit of Mercury? Probably never (and that only involves 3 planets and the Sun).

Donald asks…

I’m a Virgo. Am I going through crisises because of the Saturn in my alignment?

Here goes my very dumb, astrology-uneducated question….

I’m a Virgo, born on September 16, 1983. Recently my co-worker, an astrology fanatic, told me that I have been going through life crisises for the past 2 -3 years of my life, because of planet Saturn in my alignment (I think that is what she said). She told me that at the end of October, or the beginning of November, it will move onto Libra, and my life will be easier.

Would that be true? Sorry if I’m getting the astrology thing all mixed up!

Lizzie asks…

How can I determine the exact positions of the planets on my date of birth?

I had the idea to get a tattoo of the the solar system (with sun and planets represented by their greek symbols) with all of the planets in the exact alignment/positioning that they were on the day of my birth. How can I determine the planetary alignment of the solar system on that day?

Let t be the Julian date of your birth.

You can calculate the Julian date from a calendar date as follows:

Y = the four digit year
M = month of the year (1-12)
D = day of the month

A = integer((M−14)/12)
B = integer((1461(Y+4800+A))/4)
C = integer((367(M−2−12A))/12)
E = integer((Y+4900+A)/100)
F = integer((3E)/4)
t = B + C − F + D − 32075

For the Earth and for each of the other planets, do the procedure that appears between BEGIN and END.


Find the period, P, in days.

P = (365.256898326 days) a^1.5

Find the mean anomaly, m, in radians.

M₀ = (t − T) / P
m = 2π [ m₀ − integer(m₀) ]

Find the eccentric anomaly, u, in radians.

The Danby first approximation for the eccentric anomaly, u, in radians, is

u = m + (e − e³/8 + e⁵/192) sin(m) + (e²/2 − e⁴/6) sin(2m) + (3e³/8 − 27e⁵/128) sin(3m) + (e⁴/3) sin(4m)

The Danby’s method refinement for the eccentric anomaly.
U = m
. U = u
. F₀ = U − e sin U − m
. F₁ = 1 − e cos U
. F₂ = e sin U
. F₃ = e cos U
. D₁ = −F₀ / F₁
. D₂ = −F₀ / [ F₁ + D₁ F₂ / 2 ] . D₃ = −F₀ / [ F₁ + D₁ F₂ / 2 + D₂² F₃ / 6 ] . U = U + D₃
UNTIL |u−U| < 1e-14

Note that you will need double precision variables or better if you use a computer with Danby's refinement for the eccentric anomaly, unless you increase the error tolerance from 1e-14 to 1e-7.

Find the canonical position vector of the object in its orbit at time t.

X''' = a (cos u − e)
y''' = a sin u √(1−e²)
z''' = 0

Rotate the triple-prime position vector by the argument of the perihelion, ω.

X'' = x''' cos ω − y''' sin ω
y'' = x''' sin ω + y''' cos ω
z'' = z''' = 0

Rotate the double-prime position vector by the inclination, i.

X' = x''
y' = y'' cos i
z' = y'' sin i

Rotate the single-prime position vector by the longitude of the ascending node, Ω.

X = x' cos Ω − y' sin Ω
y = x' sin Ω + y' cos Ω
z = z'

The unprimed position vector [x,y,z] is the position in heliocentric ecliptic coordinates.


With the x and y components of rectangular heliocentric ecliptic position vector for each of the planets (ignore the z component), you can create a scale projection of the planets for the tattoo artist to use as a pattern. However, you might want to use a modified logarithmic scale for the distance from the sun, and renorm the values of x and y to this scale.

R = √(x² + y²)
X = (x/r) (log r)²
Y = (y/r) (log r)²

That will keep the angles the same, but make the tattoo more compact. If you do that, remember to use a distance unit that is less than the perihelion distance of Mercury. A unit of one million kilometers would do well. Then your values for R=√(X²+Y²) will range from 2.5 (for Mercury) to 15 (for Pluto). The tattoist could use centimeters.
