More Alignment Myth

Dear Jonathan,
There is no possible way the planets can align in a row later this week. Giuseppe


Dec 21/22 brings a rare celestial alignment that calls attention to what is happening to the Earth. At least make some effort to be balanced instead of denying this like an arrogant cynic. Marshall


You recently said there is no important astrological configuration in December 2012. But is there not a 'Yod' between Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter? Maxine.

Dear Maxine,

There is, indeed, a Yod. But that's not the supposed '26,000-year alignment' I'm being accused of denying!

Odd Yod

It is beginning to seem as if the more letters I answer, the more controversy I create. Several readers have complained about my recent replies to the lady who asked why some people never seem to get anywhere, no matter how they try. I appear to have offended pessimists with my relentless optimism. I shall have to have another try at tackling this point soon. Meanwhile, a word of explanation that I should have offered yesterday when using the term 'Yod'. You get a 'Yod' when two planets are 60 degrees apart and a third is 150 degrees away.

MInd Control

Dear Jonathan,
Recently your forecast for my sign suggested that I might want to change my mind about a decision. That night I went to a Chinese restaurant. I got a fortune cookie that said 'It's not too late to change your path'. But what if I don't want to change my path? I have made many sacrifices to be on the path I am currently on. Louise

Dear Louise,
Please note that neither I nor the fortune cookie phrased our advice in imperative terms. You are quite entitled to ignore us... unless you want to change your mind!

Out of Galactic Alignment

Hello Jonathan,
The Galactic Alignment is due on December 21. It happens every 26,000 years and is related to the black hole in the centre of our Milky Way. Why do you refute this? Glenn

Dear Glenn,
I know I must sound like the pot insulting the kettle but honestly, it is not the Galactic Alignment, it is a Galactic Alignment. We had one last year. And the year before. It is only half true to say it only falls on December 21 'once in 26,000 years'. A 34-year long phase of December 21 alignments began in 1980.

It's Not the End of the World

Today's solstice coincides with what experts in the Mayan tradition calculate as the start of the 14th Baktun or Long Count Calendar. Hence it is the end of the 13th Baktun, which is where all this talk about the 'end of an era' has come from. It may be true. Other astrological alignments also speak of big changes in outlook and attitude sweeping the globe in 2013 and beyond. But contrary to what you may have read elsewhere, Earth is not now forming an unprecedented alignment with the 'Galactic Centre' and the world is not about to end! Promise!

Your Week Ahead

Solstice Greetings! If you're reading this, the world hasn't ended. So we can stop worrying about the end of the Mayan Calendar. Nor, unless you're reading this with your eyes shut, using telepathy, has the so-called 'galactic alignment' instantly raised us all to a state of elevated consciousness. But then, I've long been trying to dampen down the many strange expectations surrounding this particular weekend. I am, though, very happy to raise a few expectations for 2013. It will be one of the happiest years many of us have ever known. And this Christmas won't be bad either!
