Avebury Manor, Witshire, July 15, 2008. This article shows the exact configuration of the planets in the solar system on December 21, 2012, with the exception that Pluto is about 30 degrees off course. Some people have suggested that this is because some intruding celestial object will throw it off its normal course. See Crop Circle Connector article (while it is still available)


Stanton St. Bernard, Wiltshire, August 18, 2007. This is the Maya numeral for six. See article on this page and for more info, another article here



Etchilhampton Hill, August 15, 2006. This formation is very similar to the Maya daysign, Lamat - rabbit: see Crop Circle Connector article and More dubious connections to ,Maya and 2012 in 2006 formations, by Red Collie.



Waylands Smithy, Oxfordshire, August 2005. Jaime Maussan, the Mexican TV presenter made much of these 2 formations, saying they encode the Maya calendrical numbers and the date of the solar zenith conjuction of Venus and Pleiades on May 20, 2012 and the Venus transit (June 6, 2012). Here is his explanation at the UFO Congress: Maussan at UFO Congress video "C. Lewis and the "Australian Scientist" also had things to say about these.

Silbury Hill, Wiltshire, August 2004. The so-called "Mayan Wheel" or "Doomsday Crop Formation" that was widely touted as being linked to 2012, but it was really just a load of waffle...if you want to know why;

See Straydog's Swirled News article on this formation and the Lewisham castle one above.




This 13-fold star appeared at Huish, Wiltshire in July 2003 and also reappeared as a "ghost formation" in April 2004 in oilseed rape (canola). It is very similar to a diagram by Jose Arguelles in The Mayan Factor (1987), which shows the 13-baktun cycle (diagram shaded for emphasis).






The so-called "missing earth" formation appeared at Longwood Warren, Wiltshire in 1995, showing the asteroid belt, Sun and orbits of Mars and Venus. Earth's orbit is shown but Earth's position is not shown. On 16/1/98 this configuration occurred during an inferior conjunction of Venus, or "Venus loop". This occurs every 584 days and was a cycle closely followed by the Maya (the Dresden Codex contains Venus tables tracking this cycle). It also occurred in June 2004, also during a Venus loop and 4 days before the Venus Transit. There are 65 "asteroids" in the belt and 65 is a Venus number...




This formation appeared at Silbury Hill, Wiltshire, in 2002. The pentagram is the figure traced out by Venus over 5 of its 584-day cycles, which add to exactly 8 haabs (365-day years). there are 13 scales between each pair of arms - total = 65. 65 of the Venus cycles (of 584 days) equal one Venus Round, (102 haabs which is 2 Calendar Rounds of 52 haabs each). 65 is also the number of baktuns in the 26,000-tun cycle of precession.

See a Swirled News  article by Straydog on these 3 formations



The Aztecs, and their predecessors, the Maya had a 365-day calendar; the Maya called it the haab.


Windmill Hill, Wiltshire UK. 29.7.96. C. 1996. Steve Alexander  365 metres in diameter...(actually, it now transpires that this is wrong...I'll be finding another...)

Every 52 haabs the Aztecs and Maya celebrated the New Fire Ceremony to "stop the world from ending".


Beckhampton, Wiltshire, 21.7.98. C. 1998. Steve Alexander  52 circles in the tail...

Their history told of 4 past eras, each of which ended in catastrophe, and of a fifth and final era era in which they were living. The 5 eras are depicted at the centre of the Aztec Sunstone, in the form of a quincunx.                       

The central circle is a round barrow, or Bronze age burial mound. Everleigh Ashes, Wilts. UK. 19/07/2000. C. 2000. Steve Alexander A quincunx formation appears every year...See Beyond 2012 item 31

The Aztecs and Maya also had a  calendar of 260 days, (day = kin, which literally means sun), called the tzolkin, (or day-count) by the Maya. It was composed of a combination of 20 day-signs and 13 numbers.

Silbury hill, Avebury, Wiltshire, UK. 4.5.98. C. 1998. Steve Alexander  A sun with 33 flames...20 + 13 = 33 See Whats new item54 

Three tzolkins of 260 days each added to 780 days - one synodic period of the planet Mars  (its synodic period is the time that it takes Mars to orbit the sun relative to Earth).   "Mayan Mars"Link

The Aztecs had preserved some of the calendrical knowledge inherited from earlier civilisations, but had forgotten about the Long Count calendar, which researchers now know holds the clues to the 5 eras. It is like a giant tzolkin, since it consists of 260 katuns (a katun is about 20 years long).

Windmill Hill, Avebury, Wiltshire, UK. 21.6.00. C. 2000. Steve Alexander  260 feet in diameter...

The Long Count: 20 days (kin) is one uinal; 18 uinals makes one tun of 360 days.

Avebury Trusloe, Wilts 23/5/99. C. 1999 Steve Alexander  20 outer circles x 18 inner "sperms" = 360...See Whats new item 6

There are 400 of these 360-day tuns in one baktun, which is 20 katuns of 20 tuns each. .

  East Kennett, Wiltshire, 2/7/2000. C. 2000 Steve Alexander20 x 20 grid of 400 squares...See Whats new item 6

There are 13 baktuns in one Great Cycle, or "13-baktun cycle", as it is also known, which is a total of 5200 tuns, or around 5,125 years. It started in 3114 BC and ends in 2012. This is the last of the 5 eras remembered by the Aztecs on the Sunstone - thus the 5 eras amount to a total of  65 baktuns.

  Longwood Warren, Hampshire, UK. 26.6.95. C. 1995. Steve Alexander65 circles in the outer ring...

The 65-baktun cycle of 5 eras is exactly 26,000 tuns in length - or one cycle of the precession of the equinoxes, but the Maya were actually measuring the precession of the solstices. In 2012, a 6th era will begin, which will be the first era of the next cycle of precession - (65 baktuns plus another 13 baktuns = 78). There are also 65 Venus cycles in a 104-year Venus Round.

 Milk Hill, Alton Barnes, Wiltshire. 14.08.01. C. 2001. Steve Alexander 6 arms spin out from the centre - each one has 13 circles - a total of 78...See Whats new item 38

There is a possibility that the Aztec Sunstone encodes a lost knowledge of the Long Count - an animation can be seen below... Read the full story here.

Wakerley Woods, Barrowden, Northamptonshire, UK. 3.6.01. C. 2001 Nick Nicholson.  This formation was discovered and synchronistically named "Aztec Pizza", the same weekend that the animation was finished. It has 18 "G" glyphs - the Mayan symbol for the Milky Way. 18 was the key numerical key to the animation... 

The Maya encoded the calendrical information into their pyramid of Kukulcan at Chichen Itza, and the Masonic brotherhood encoded it into their Great Seal of America, including the 2012 end point on top of the Masonic pyramid. This pyramid includes elements of Mayan and Egyptian pyramids.

  Beacon Hill, Nr. Highclere, Hampshire, UK. 21st July 2002. C. 2002 Steve AlexanderThe Masonic Eye in the Triangle, here surrounded by 33 rays, representing the 33 Masonic degrees of initiation, corresponding to the journey of the kundalini serpent up the 33 vertebrae of the human spine...See Beyond 2012 item 44

At the end of the 5th precessional era, in 2012, the capstone will descend onto the pyramid, signifying the opening of the Third Eye and illumination of humanity.

  East Field, Alton Barnes, UK. 21.06.2001. C. 2001 Steve AlexanderAligned with the completed pyramid, which (as well as the completion of mankind), represents the Earth's Northern hemisphere, and polar axis, is the "Sun and the Sun behind the Sun" - the Source - Galactic Centre...

In 2012, the Winter Solstice Sun aligns with Galactic Centre (Hunab Ku to the Maya) - this is the opening of the Golden Gate - the point of alpha and omega.

Shamans have been "climbing" the Axis Mundi, or polar axis for thousands of years, by using the shamanic techniques of ecstasy (from Gk. exstasis - standing outside oneself - out-of-body). 

 Winchester, Hampshire, UK. 15.8.2002. C. 2002. Steve Alexander The Axis Mundi is usually depicted growing inside a circle or oval...

Psychedelic mushrooms (from Gk. psychedelos - soul manifestation) are one of the foremost techniques; some of these contain chemicals very similar to those produced in the pineal gland, or Third Eye. The Maya also had the concept of the Axis Mundi, or World Tree, but in addition, they had a Crocodile Tree representing our galaxy - the Milky Way, and they visited Hunab Ku - the galactic centre which lies in the mouth of the crocodile, (or dark rift as we call it).

East Field, Wiltshire, UK 15/7/02. C. 2002 Steve Alexander  This was aligned to a long barrow called Adam's Grave, and unifies the Tree of Knowlege, Mushrooms, and the World Tree...

 Mythology from all over the world reveals knowledge of these concepts, where the Tree represents the polar axis, the milky way or the galactic centre-anticentre axis. See essay: The Astral Transition - the formation above appeared in the summer following the writing of the essay, and seems to confirm many of the ideas. See also the totally separate confirmation in Whats New item 37;  Astral Transition Essay Vindicated by Non-Human ?

Badbury, Wiltshire, UK. 17.6.01. C. 2001. Steve Alexander  Sphere and satellite are Earth and Moon surrounded by the snake swallowing its own tail...the ecliptic...

The trees are associated with snakes representing the ecliptic (Sun's apparent path through the stars), or arrival of cosmic kundalini or with a dragon, representing precession of lunar eclipse nodes. John Major Jenkins' great new book, Galactic Alignment is a mine of information on these topics.

Barbury Castle, Wiltshire, 3.5.97. C. 1997. Steve Alexander  The Kabbalistic Tree of Life, which is also associated with Adam, shows realms beyond the veil. Like the Egyptian djed pillar, the middle pillar represents the human spine and major chakras (power zones), as well as the Axis Mundi...

Judaism conceals some of this information. The 7 Days of Creation represent 7 Days of the Lord, each of which is 1,000 years. Thus, there are 6 periods of 1,000 years between the birth of Adam and the coming of the Golden Age, which lasts another 1,000 years. The calendar's 6 days terminate in September 2012, when the Gates of Heaven are open for 7 days. See Whats new item 62

Barbury Castle, Wiltshire, UK 31/5/99. C. 1999 Steve Alexander  The 7-branched candlestick, or menorah represents the 7 Days of Creation...it is also a version of the kabbalistic tree of Life, showing all 11 sephiroth. Note the lamp above the candlestick...

Christianity also encodes the information (see Whats new item 61. We are told to have our lamp wicks trimmed ready for the wedding feast, when the bridegroom returns. This is the return of Quetzalcoatl (Kukulcan) that is depicted in the shadow-play on the pyramid of Kukulcan at Chichen Itza. At the "creation", Adam (literally, Man), was offered a glimpse behind the veil, using the psychedelic fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. Ever since, shamans have returned from those places, with gems around which our religions became crystallized.

Terence and Dennis McKenna used the same mushroom that was used by the Maya when they returned and decoded the 2012 end-date from the ancient Chinese oracle, the I Ching.  See item 17 and Whats New item 44

Some might say this formation has a 2012 connection...

Following the release of "Signs", the new film starring Mel Gibson, (in which evil green earth-conquering aliens are responsible for crop formations), a kind of response has appeared. A classic alien holds out an encoded disc. The disc has now been found to be encoded with 8-bit computer code, that translates to the following English sentence:

"Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts & their BROKEN PROMISES. Much PAIN but still time. BELIEVE. There is GOOD out there. We OPpose DECEPTION. Conduit CLOSING (BELL SOUND)"
