Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book comes with dozens of illustrations, references, and a wide range of information from mundane astrology to the current obsession with mono-atomic gold, which has been compared to the elixir of eternal life. I thoroughly recommend this book to any thoughtful and dedicated researcher of the facts, not the fiction, of the 2012 phenomenon." (Leslely Crossingham, New Dawn, Mar/Apr 2009)

"To prove her point, the author draws upon mythology, archetypes, and symbols from a variety of other ancient belief systems. . . . 2012 and the Galactic Center is very well written and extremely powerful." (TCM Reviews, Sept 2008)

" . . . this is a great book for those who wish to accelerate their personal growth as 2012 approaches . .  I applaud this author for her thoughtful input about how we can embrace this time of great opportunity for personal growth." (Jeb Schlackman, reviewer, Sept 2008)

"Whereas thinkers in the Christian (and Islamic) world have distorted this story to reinforce patriarchal dominance, Page reinvigorates this cross-cultural learning tale asserting its essential theme, long neglected and suppressed, of the need to recover the wisdom, power, and compassion of the feminine principle." (Curtis McCosco, CirclesofLight.com, April 2010)

“. . . the emphasis is on the heart rather than the mind . . .” (Dell Horoscope, November 2010)

“A masterpiece of ancient wisdom and truth that is so compelling that you cannot put this book down. Rarely does a book come along that reads as if it is a text directly from an ancient mystery school, but 2012 and the Galactic Center qualifies for that status. It truly is a must-read.”
(Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Power and Healing)

“Based on the keys to understanding 2012--the galactic alignment, the dark rift ‘birth place’ in the Milky Way, and the Galactic Center ‘womb’--Christine Page elaborates the astrological dynamics and spiritual challenges of our impending transformation and renewal.” (John Major Jenkins, author of Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 and Unlocking the Secrets of 2012)

2012 and the Galactic Center engages us in the most exciting event in 260 centuries! Christine Page presents positive challenges to conventional doubts about the future.” (C. Norman Shealy, coauthor of Soul Medicine: Awakening Your Inner Blueprint for Abundant Health and)

“Christine Page is a remarkable wisdomkeeper, and her book is a masterful and enlightening synthesis of ageless wisdom that speaks to our troubled times.” (Brian Luke Seaward, author of Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water)

"Dr. Page's book is an inspirational journey into spiritual alchemy." (Nexus New Times Magazine)

"[2012 and the Galactic Center is] about tuning in to the goddess (feminine) qualities of intuition, compassion, and emotional creativity to facilitate the expansion of our collective consciousness." (Chris Lorenz, Dell Horoscope)

" . . . very well written and extremely powerful." (Dr. Tami Brady, Whole Health Therapist)

"An extraordinary book for an extraordinary time." (Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide, Issue No. 29, Jan/Feb 2009)

"The significance of this 2012 date, coupled with the void at the center of the galaxy, creates fear in some; the end of the Mayan calendar could be the end of times. Others are far more hopeful. Dr. Christine Page sits squarely in the second camp." (Spirit of Change, Vol. 22, No. 106, W)

"Read this book if you can, it could open you up to interesting possibilities, and at the very least, mitigate your fears around the 2012 issue, at least a little. Strongly recommended." (Bani Sodermark, Karlstad, Sweden, Nov 2008)

" . . . I found the book an enjoyable and interesting read." (Geoff Stray, Caduceus, Issue 76, Jan 09)

“A masterpiece of ancient wisdom and truth that is so compelling that you cannot put this book down. Rarely does a book come along that reads as if it is a text directly from an ancient mystery school, but 2012 and the Galactic Center qualifies for that status. It truly is a must-read.”

“Based on the keys to understanding 2012--the galactic alignment, the dark rift ‘birth place’ in the Milky Way, and the Galactic Center ‘womb’--Christine Page elaborates the astrological dynamics and spiritual challenges of our impending transformation and renewal.”
--John Major Jenkins, author of Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 and Unlocking the Secrets of 2012

This is an extraordinary time in the planet’s history. In 2012, for the first time in almost 26,000 years, our sun will be most closely aligned to the Galactic Center. This Alignment, which began with the Harmonic Convergence in 1987 and will conclude in 2023, presents a thirty-six-year window of opportunity for humanity to participate in the creation of a new era of expanded consciousness.

Christine Page explains that, as the source of all creation, our galaxy is the Great Mother and its center, her heart. Auspiciously aligning Earth with the heart of the Mother, the Alignment heralds a rebirth of the divine feminine qualities of the Triple Goddess--intuition, emotional creativity, and renewal. Drawing on alchemy and mythology, Page details how to connect with and use the sacred spiritual tools unlocked during the alignment to merge with the Great Mother, a spiritual transformation that allows us to expand our awareness and experience ourselves as eternal beings.

CHAPTER 4

The Celestial Design

The stage is now set to undertake a spiritual journey that is essential for this particular time in our history. It is time to feed your heart with all the gems of experience and wisdom from the past twenty-six thousand years in order to charge your Ka with the energy of light. It is time to retrieve small parts of your awareness that have been the magnet for the creation of your dreams and ideas and yet have been abandoned when things haven’t worked out quite the way you planned.
     Despite your expectations, your consciousness has been transformed by the unfulfilled event. Therefore, only by getting to the heart of the matter or the core of the story is it possible for you to extract the pearl that waits within and offer it up to the Great Mother as your humble gift to the collective consciousness.
     In truth, this cycle of turning our dreams into form and then back into the pure essence of consciousness often remains incomplete. Many ideas flounder before reaching the full bloom of success, while at other times we cling desperately to manifested dreams without realizing that our soul’s fulfillment is based not merely on material success but also on dissolving form back into pure consciousness.
     Yet there is one part of our nature that never forgets: the higher self, the bearer of our spiritual blueprint. It is our constant companion, urging us on when we get stuck; encouraging us never to compromise when it comes to spiritual abundance; and marinating us in compassion, whatever choices we make. Like other aspects of our being, its contribution to our spiritual journey is highlighted in mythological stories of gods and goddesses, reminding us first and foremost that we are immortal beings.
     The symbolism of our spiritual quest has been encrypted within many ancient divination systems, including tarot and astrology. Our ability to appreciate the wisdom and knowledge held within these sacred systems is directly proportional to the openness of our heart’s mind, which inherently recognizes the universal patterns flowing through all creative processes.

Astrological Mythology

The word zodiac is derived from a Greek word meaning “circle of little animals.” Although not all the symbols of the zodiac are animals, the Indo-European cultures developed a zodiac of twelve signs or constellations of stars through which the sun appears to pass during its yearly journey across the heavens on what is known as the ecliptic.
     The twelve constellations are thirty degrees apart. Each symbolizes a particular phase of the sun’s/hero’s mythological story and impacts subconsciously this planet and its people. Starting with Aries, the Ram, the constellations alternate between being either masculine-positive or feminine-negative; there are six of each polarity in the zodiac. Each of the twelve constellations is also aligned to one of three qualities essential for spiritual evolution. These qualities are deemed to be either mutable, fixed, or cardinal.
    
     Mutable: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces
     Fixed: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
     Cardinal: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
    
     As you can see, each quality is represented by four signs, which together create a cross. According to Alice Bailey, who channeled the sacred and alchemical teachings of the Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul, our spiritual quest requires us to embody each of the crosses symbolically in order to reach spiritual enlightenment.1
     The esoteric meaning and symbol of each cross is as follows:

The mutable cross: a place of action, reaction, experience, and the awakening of consciousness. The symbol is the swastika, which is an ancient sign reflecting the freedom that comes when we learn to master our thoughts and desires. Each zodiac sign of the mutable cross represents a different focus for the mind:
    
     Gemini: the consciousness of duality
     Virgo: the blending of spirit and form through self-reflection and contemplation
     Sagittarius: focused awareness on the truth
     Pisces: blended radiance through universal consciousness, which allows the individual to ascend to the fixed cross
    
The fixed cross:
a place of transmutation where desire shifts into aspiration and selfishness into selflessness. The symbol is a cross whose four arms are of equal length. Each zodiac sign included in the fixed cross reflects the type of resources that will nurture our spiritual journey.
    
     Taurus: the wealth that lives within, awaiting manifestation
     Leo: the wealth and richness of the manifested form
     Scorpio: the wealth of experience extracted through trials and tests
     Aquarius: the wealth of group consciousness as the essence of light is finally extracted from the manifested form, allowing the individual to ascend to the cardinal cross
    
The cardinal cross: a place of transcendence where the individual is free from the restraints of the physical world and is in service to universal consciousness. The symbol for the cardinal cross is an X, with each zodiac sign in the cardinal cross symbolizing the creative abilities inherent within the individual.

     Aries: carries latent creative consciousness urging the individual to take the risk to create
     Cancer: the creative plan in manifestation moves the individual to the awareness of his or her ability to manifest his or her own reality
     Libra: the creative plan realized in consciousness challenges the individual to use these gifts wisely
     Capricorn: the transformation of conscious awareness through the perpetual fire into pure essence; the individual becomes his or her own initiator as the mystic

     It is important to note that the statements above do not relate to our sun sign per se or necessarily to the placement of any of the planets within the natal chart. Instead, they relate to an esoteric understanding of spiritual achievement; each cross leads us toward our spiritual goal of eternal life. Yet it is true to say that humanity as a whole is, at present, poised on the fixed cross ready to ascend the cardinal cross through the portal of the age of Aquarius, which is just now beginning its twenty-one-hundred-year cycle. This epoch represents a time of self responsibility, group consciousness, social conscience, and detachment from personal desires and aspirations.
