Santa Cruz, CA. – Should we consider adding extra food and emergency supplies to our shopping list while shopping for the holidays this year?
According to Psychic Susie Stevens- no, we should not worry about that and just shop and prepare for the holidays because she doesn’t believe that we will see the end of days quite yet. Stevens is a longtime psychic from the city of Live Oak and she has been getting call after call with people worried about the December 21st, 2012 date; the last day on the Mayan calendar.
Stevens recently gave an interview to the Santa Cruz Sentinel in which she talks about what she foresees for the upcoming months.
She starts off the interview by saying, “I’m getting call after call from panicked people, but this is a good thing.”
The reason she believes this is a good thing, is because of the giant planetary line-up that is coming, for those who believe in astrology.
Stevens claims that six of our biggest planets- Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Venus, and Mars- will be positioned in a remarkable way, and since they are very incompatible planets, they will be “battling each other” for the next two to three years.
This, she says, will bring a lot of things to a head, good things and bad things.
“It’s a traffic jam of planets at each other, which all have an agenda,” she says. “But it does cause breakthroughs. With this alignment we’ll see a lot of good, powerful breakthroughs. Sagittarius and Capricorn will get it the most.”
When asked if the date of 12/12/12 had any significant meaning, she said that the number 12 signifies “completion” in numerology. And even though a lot of people got married on this date, Stevens doesn’t think that it was a good day for a marriage.
“It’s an intense day; I wouldn’t have gotten married that day,” she says. “I would have run to my therapist to resolve any issues I had.”
She believes that the next few years will be an excellent time for political issues. She states that President Obama (who is a healer in her eyes) will do astonishingly well.
She feels that the concept of global warming will be more accepted and recognized in a matter of about three to five years, and that the months to come will be a good time for police departments everywhere to do a better job policing their cities, and it will especially be a good time to re-open and solve cold cases.
Stevens foresees the next natural disasters as having to do with water. This is because Saturn (the planet of fate and birth/death) has been in the water sign of Scorpio since the beginning of October.
Speaking locally about Santa Cruz, California, she predicts that the economy will be booming again by spring of 2013 and she sees the upper side of Pacific Avenue experiencing a makeover, with several shops closing and their place being taken over by high-tech and high fashion businesses.
“I see fashion shows that will bring in attractive energy, and a photo shop with animals and music,” says Stevens.
She says she has received a lot of questions pertaining to the next earthquake, and she thinks that it will occur in the area of Los Angeles.
She sees the year 2013 as being a year of hope for the city of Santa Cruz.
“And some day, Watsonville and Santa Cruz will fall in love,” she says. “The prediction for that is 2015.”
Stevens was raised a catholic and deeply believes in God. It is her opinion that He is the only one who really knows what is going to happen. She states that planets don’t cause human behavior, they simply influence it.
“I actually feel things are going to get better and I’ve seen too much to be an optimist,” she states.
Even NASA was not immune to questions about December 21st being the end of the world. They were so inundated by questions of this nature that they decided to post a statement on their website debunking the idea that this could be the end.
“Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012,” says the NASA statement.
According to NASA, the myth began with claims that the planet supposedly discovered by the Sumerians, Nibiru, is on a path headed straight to Earth. This was first predicted to happen in May of 2003, but then it was changed to December of 2012 since there is a link between that and the end of one of the cycles in the old Mayan calendar. The NASA website states that these stories are mostly just Internet hoaxes.
However, a large number of people do not believe that it’s simply a hoax.
There is a website at www.december212012.com that has a seconds countdown to this date. They have all stories related to the supposed upcoming apocalypse, such as a story from Edinburgh, Scotland that details how the search for a one way airplane ticket to two known sheltering towns- France and Turkey- are up by more than a third, according to Skyscanner, a travel search website.
They also have a story from the New York Times about how Russia’s minister of emergency situations announced that the world was not going to end. He had to make this statement after a group of prisoners in a women’s prison complained of experiencing “a collective mass psychosis.” In a different town, frightened townspeople cleared store shelves of emergency supplies. Other people in the town even built a large Mayan-style archway out of the ice on the ground.
The leaders of the country of Bolivia are also using this date to make changes to the country. David Choquehuanca, the Bolivian minister of external affairs has stated that on the same day that the Mayan calendar enters a new cycle, he will outlaw Coca-Cola; this is designed to mark the end of capitalism.
The Pasadena Star News published a story about a new catastrophe prep group located in Los Angeles. They state that being prepared in the case of a disaster has become it’s own culture. The National Geographic show “Doomsday Preppers” has been a popular hit series on their network since it’s debut further highlighting people who are consumed by the impending doom.
Carter Wilson is a UC Santa Cruz professor emeritus who specializes in Mayan culture. He states that the Mayans were exceptional astrologers and that they had two different calendars- one long count one and one short count calendar. He believes that the date when both of those calendars intersect is of significant importance.
“That doesn’t necessarily mean anything is going to change. It’s amusing; it’s been a big tourism boon in Mexico. You can’t get a hotel room in the Yucatan area,” says Wilson.
“But when people ask me about it, I tell them this is about as important to the Maya as the year 2000 was for us,” he says.
He also adds that understanding the Mayan culture in relation to the subject of prophecy is confusing because they often speak in future tense about things that have already happened in the past.
