In thinking about this from astro perspective it seems to me:
Of course the tropical zodiac wheel is our seasons – it can be regarded as a more or less fixed set of coordiates. Then precession measures movement of a point on wheel (equinox) against backdrop of the stars. So the (N Hemi – whole earth view) winter solstice is coming into alignment slowly with galactic centre (direction). In astro ephemeris winter solstice is 0 Capricorn (by definition, always) and currently GC is almost 27 Sagittarius – 3 degrees off. At end 2012 GC is still 27 Sag. So there is no big alignment of solstice point (0 Cap) with GC coming up soon – a century from now GC will be 28 Sag – a little closer. Still, I suppose its in ballpark – our (N Hemi/whole earth) winter aligned with GC. One interpretation of GC is it accentuates, empowers through resonance with bigger ‘engine’ of galaxy. So, alignment could accentuate the deep yin of winter – the flip side of global warming, and probably just extremes hot/cold. (As I see it the sun/moon/earth aligments close to lunar nodes are more telling in short term – and I think especially lunar nodes 18 year cycle coming to 0 Cap winter solistice point in Feb 2011). When I see the sketchy details of Mayan drawings of end calendar it looks to me like they highlight water/winter symbolism – strong yin. The good bit is we get to resonate with bigger engine but need balance otherwise extremes get magnified. Prof Flywheel says: careful of speed wobbles as you step on the gas, dude. The lunar nodes symbolism (Sun/Moon alchemy) are more relevant to our conditions. Get harmony here – more voltage then ok. If not, then not.

The mayan calendar isn’t about astrology or alignment with the galactic center, no matter how wonderful those alignments may be. It’s about cosmology & evolution, especially the evolution of consciousness. The “end” of the mayan calendar is actually 10/28/2011 when a pulse from the life force or world tree will cause an evolutionary leap forward in humanity & probably all life forms.
