A Bumper Crop of Crop Circles

My friends and I have been dwelling on the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012, trying to decide whether we should sell all our belongings on eBay in anticipation of the event. Evidently, the folks — be they human or extraterrestrial — behind England’s famed crop circles are thinking about the Mayan calendar too.

Astrologer Michael WolfStar features an item on the crop circles in his column this week at StarIQ: http://www.stariq.com/Main/Articles/P0008858.HTM,
A more extensive treatment with fabulous pictures is up at Wolfstar’s Neptune Cafe: http://www.neptunecafe.com/cropcircles.html

Interesting that the latest crop circles, featuring the planetary lineup for Dec. 21, 2012, appeared near Avebury, in Wiltshire, England, on July 15, during the Sun’s passage through Cancer, which governs food and agriculture, as it was trining Uranus, which rules astrology! Not all previous crop circles have been astro-oriented. Talk about a marriage between heaven and earth.

If you want to delve more deeply into this, check out this BBC interview with crop circle researcher David Kingston: http://www.bbc.co.uk/southampton/features/cropcircles/cropcircles_history.shtml

One of the more interesting comments at cropcircleconnector.com about the latest Avebury formation comes from Stephen Paoli, who notes, as others do, that all of the planets save Pluto are in the places where they are expected to be on Dec. 21, 2012.

Paoli says: “Pluto’s orbit may have been altered due to the passing of a large body! Nibiru! it could also explain why its orbit is already so strange (Nibiru has come before).”

Niburu. Well, I can see another long and winding Google search is in my future.

In the meantime, I’ve frittered away a couple of hours reading about the history of crop circles and the various hoaxes over the years. Because many of my friends are professional photographers, I don’t use images without giving credit or (gasp!) payment. Here’s one that appears to be in the public domain that comes from All That Is, the Online University of Truth:
