Venus transits of the Sun were considered key timing triggers of world events by the ancient Maya. The Venus transits of June 2004 and June 2012 correspond to an unprecedented rise of 22 women heads of state. Strong similarities to periods with world women leaders following Venus transits from 1518 to the most recent in 1882, indicate that it is only a matter of time before the U.S. elects a woman president.

Similarities to periods with strong female leaders such as the Elizabethan Era following the Venus transit of 1518 and the Victorian Era following the most recent in 1882, indicate that it is only a matter of a few years before the U.S. elects its first woman president.

Carl Johann Calleman author of the foremost book on the Mayan Calendar calculates the end of the present 5,000 year calendar to take place on October 28th, 2011. Other scholars, such as John Major Jenkins, point to the Winter Solstice of December 21st, 2012 as being the more likely date. Kari will discuss these differing viewpoints. She will also discuss current events such as the Occupy WallStreet Movement and the death of deposed dictator Khadafi of Libya as correspondences between this period with the Uranus/Pluto squares of 2010-2014 and the Uranus/Pluto conjunction period of the mid-1960s.

Recent material from Steven Forrest , Maurice Fernandez and Celeste Teal, on the other hand, illuminates the need to come to a place of eventual balance between these energies.
