Wow. May 20, 2012. This date/event was signaled out by the ancient Maya as a great cosmic event where the earth, sun, moon and Pleiades will aligned! Not only that but we will have a ring of fire Solar Eclipse and the New Moon in gemini! Powerful transformative forces at work. I gathered all the downloads so we can all tune in to this potent time!
First here’s the 411 about the NEW MOON energy and Solar Eclipse from the always wonderful Dipali Desai and her Celestial Space Astrology blog:
“With the arrival of New Moon in Gemini and Solar Eclipse on May 20th, 2012, we will open a new chapter in our lives as symbolized by the symbolism of a Solar Eclipse. Being objective and observing will help us navigate the variety of aspects happening around the New Moon in Gemini.”
“It’s a time that will leave a lasting impression upon our being and stimulate the mind and possibly bring excitement.”
 ”The Solar Eclipse will symbolically turbo-charge the energy of the New Moon in Gemini and all of the aspects surrounding it. So don’t give into superstition or get spooked regarding the Solar Eclipse. There is nothing to fear but there may be a lot of opportunities.”
“Get ready to be whisked off your feet. The New Moon/ Solar Eclipse  at 0 degrees Gemini – happens at 7:23 pm EDT // 4:23 pm PST. It will be visible from Asia, Eastern Europe, North America, Greenland, Arctic and north Pacific Oceans.  Remember that Eclipses come in pairs and the second of this pair is a Lunar Eclipse on June 4th, 2012 but more on this later.”
“The astrological sign of Gemini represents the archetype of the ‘Networker, Student and Social Butterfly’ amongst others.  This highly logical and intellectual sign appreciates connecting the dots and sharing information it gathers.”
“This Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Gemini sparks up new beginnings within the mental energy field and within the mind. There may be potential new ideas forming and swirling.”
“A new moon phase within the lunar cycle is a wonderful time to set new intention(s), plant new seeds, create a new opportunity  or start a new routine and or habit. You must get your intention and inspired ideas set to go. It is an golden opportunity you don’t want to miss it since it is super-energized by the Solar Eclipse…”
“Consider the following:”
“Venus is already Retrograde in Gemini at the time of the New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Gemini on May 20th. Old or past issues are prominent themes around the topics of love, values, relationships, friendships, networking and exchanging ideas. Past thoughts or ideas  or interesting opportunities surface for you to weigh out.”
“For some relationships, the weak spots become glaringly obvious and therefore there may be sadness or realizations occurring now. It is helpful to trim away superficial relationships and keep only those that are quality, meaningful and valuable. The retrograde phase is extremely helpful as it can help you sort resolve past issues and clean up the energy.”
“The New Moon in Gemini makes a ‘Square’ aspect to Neptune in Pisces. Does it sounds soggy or water logged? Yes, it is very possible. An internalized jumbled mess until things are sorted out.”
“This aspect symbolizes, there can be confusion, deception, anxiety and uncertainty surrounding this aspect as thoughts and feelings are being mixed up on the inside of you with a sense of there’s no way out. It’s as if logic and feeling are clashing with each other.”
“We need to understand what is fantasy or illusion and what is real and factual. We have to find a way to transform the limitation into freedom and to bring harmony to thoughts and feelings so there is clarity. Sorrow, tears, anxiety and even a bit of high strung energy is possible now.”
“Healing can take place to help open up the heart energy center. We may see where compassion and empathy is a necessity to heal and move forward into new beginnings. The potential of this aspect is: It is wise to understand things from a Spiritual perspective and then it makes sense on a logically level.  Our thoughts may be Spiritualized by this process. Hearts and feelings could expand quickly.”
“Venus in Gemini ‘Trine’ Saturn in Libra retrograde at the 23 degree mark. This represents a very positive energy towards love, relationships and creative projects. On a romantic level, affections may become more solidified and develop strongly now.”
“You’ll want to “talk about” things. A commitment or agreement that began in the past with a ‘What if…’  may become more tangible now.  It is possible that past ideas regarding business or creative project advance in small steps now. For others, affections and interests may cool down or become distant.”
“We may be on the receiving end of help from those in position of authority, higher status or someone well established. With Venus retrograde, look for renewals of connections both personal and business.”
“It is possible friendships mature or a new level of responsibility forms within the relationship. Enjoy flirting, dating, friendships and deeply savor the moments spent with each other. Cherish the treasures that are manifesting easily now.”
“Also during the time of the New Moon/Solar Eclipse, is Mercury/Jupiter building to a Conjunction in Taurus. This gives a some what symbolic stability to the otherwise zippy mental energy happening. Though certain thoughts seem magnified now and we may give into our desires.”
“Promise or agree to only what you can deliver. We have solid strength to access and bring out ideals into reality with that which is highly valuable to us. By the way, do your best not to be overly stubborn. Listen to what is being said and then make the decision…”
“Remember, that each astrological aspect has something valuable to teach and offer us so that we move with the higher stream of evolution. It is about becoming more and more conscious, empowered and aware. Who we are, what our higher purpose is and how to express it with the utmost integrity in the physical world.”

Here’s some info on the alignment with Pleiades which are a constellation that has been mystically referenced  by many of the worlds’s ancient and indigenous cultures. 

From International Metaphysical University  site:
“On May 20, 2012, for the first time in 26,000 years, the Sun and Moon, and the constellation responsible for our spiritual evolution and ascension, the mystic Pleiades, will align in a spectacular, full Annular Solar Eclipse and a rare solar eclipse alignment will happen between the Earth, the Sun and, our central Sun, Alcyone in the Pleiades Constellation…”
“The Pleiades was clearly revered by the Mayans, who in the area of Chichen Itza knew that the Sun casts a snake-like shadow on the side of the north stairway of the Kukulcan pyramid during the spring equinox. Some scholars have calculated that about 60 days after this shadow’s appearance, when the sun reaches its zenith over the Pyramid at mid-day (May 20 – May 23), there is another direct alignment with the Pleiades. This Pleiades-sun alignment may have a direct connection with Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent that came to bring a greater wisdom to the planet.”
“The ancient Egyptians also singled out the Pleiades as a female goddess, probably most often recognized as Neith, the ‘Divine Mother’, or Hathor, who took on the form of a cow (who carried the seeds of life). Pyramidologists working in Egypt in the last twelve years have found pyramidal texts that suggest the Egyptians revered the Pleiades as a higher divine star system, especially Alcyone, its brightest star.”
“The Pleiades are a well-known sight in the Northern Hemisphere in winter and in the Southern Hemisphere in summer, and have been known since ancient times to cultures all around the world.  Early Dakota stories speak of the ancestors as being the Pleiades. The Hopis called the Pleiadians the ‘Chuhukon’, meaning those who cling together. They considered themselves direct descendents of the Pleiadians.”
“Navajos named the Pleiades the ‘Sparkling Suns’, the home of the ‘Black God’. The Iroquois pray to them for happiness. The Cree claim to have come to Earth from the stars in spirit form first and then became flesh and blood. Some Native Americans believed that all tribes in North America came from the Pleiades. That they were actually descendants and had been given a task by the Pleiadians to keep the Earth safe.”

From James Tyberonn via Shift Frequency:
“’The Great Pleiadian Eclipse Alignment’. Ring of Fire , Full Solar Eclipse On May 20, 2012, for the first time in 26000 years, our Sun and Moon and the constellation … You cannot miss this glorious event! Gather where you can, meditate and open the heart to receive this transitional energy…an energy bearing sacred codes!”
“…It has incredible significance. It is a portal of tremendous energy, and will spawn magnificent energy feeds. It is precisely why the final phase of the heralded ‘ Cosmic Trigger’ is occurring on this Eclipse of 2012.”
“…This Eclipse is spectacular, not only visually, but in it’s mega-energy. The Sun and Moon ( New Moon) will be precisely conjunct with the stunning Central Star of the Pleiades, in the constellation Taurus.”
“The Pleiadian star system is in fact our core essence, our ancestral home. That is why it has been recognized by the Ancients , from LeMuria, Atlantis to the Hopi. revered cosmic objects in history, poetry and mythology across all cultures. The Pleiades were recognized in the language of many of the indigenous people of the Americas, including the Maya, Toltec, Aztec, Ayameria, Lakota, Navajo and Hopi. Known as the home of the Star-People, of Star Nation by the campestral & mystical societies all over the world, including Australia, Africa, Asia, and the Americas.”
“…Humanity will feel the impact of these through what is termed ‘Ascension Symptoms’, and these may be experienced as mood swings, dizziness, insomnia, anxiety, lethargy, apathy and fatigue. For each advancing energy will require physical, emotional and mental adjustment to the higher frequencies downloaded.”
“…You may at times feel as though you are taking one step backward before taking two steps forward… something akin to a miniature Saturn Return ! But keep in mind, the two steps forward will occur.”
“Do not despair, for the symptoms will pass quickly, and the benefits are a stronger ‘you’. The key is understanding what is happening, and persevering …and maintaining a positive energy and an intact Auric Field. ”

Here is the download from Master teacher and Mayan shaman and wisdom keeper Miguel Angel Vergara and his foundation CasaKin:
“There is a special moment during this period of the Mayan Calendar on May 20, when K’in, (the sun) aligns with Tzab-Kan, Rattelsnake Constellation in Mayan, (the Pleiades Constellation), making an adjustment in the time dimension in which we are now living and opening the spiritual channel for the return of the Sacred Wisdom of the Mayan Masters from the Pleiades….”
“The best way of introducing this Galactic Moment is through the words written in the Sacred Book of the Maya, the Popol Vuh.”
“It says: …On the above dates of May 20 and 21, there will be one Maya Ceremonial Center in Yucatán that will be at the very center of this Galactic Alignment between the Earth, the Sun, and the Pleiades Constellation…
“On these dates the Eclipse of the Sun presents an opportunity for the Suns of the Pleiades to illuminate our Planet, and everyone who is in synchronization – spiritually and energetically – will receive these wonderful rays of light from the Heart of the Pleiades: Alcyone, which has the most powerful energy of the Pleiades Suns. Our Planet Earth is a small world that revolves around Alcyone, one of the seven suns of the Pleiades. Each one of these Suns gives life and light to their corresponding planets that revolve around them.”
“According to the Maya Masters of the Light, the Pleiades are a picturesque panorama in the universe. In addition to their seven Suns, there is another the Sun, Astral-Equatorial which intelligently coordinates all the cosmic and spiritual tasks and activities.”
“…align yourself and receive these sacred cosmic energies that will undoubtedly give us the opportunity to make a major quantum leap in our Spiritual evolution and development.”
“Every 52 years, the Pleiades is in alignment with our planet at midnight and according to the Maya this represents a moment of harmony. It marks the end and the beginning of the Tzolkin Lunar Calendar, the Haab Solar Calendar, and the Zenith with the Pleiades.”
“We are in the year ending the 13 Maya Baktun count; a date that initiates great change in the Consciousness of Humankind. The Maya tell us that Time and Space is like a Great Serpent that is moving in the sky, and each cosmic movement is a musical note, but in another frequency, another octave.”
“My Teacher, Don Vicente Martin, commented on different occasions that the great change in the Consciousness of our Planet has much to do with the frequency, the vibration, and the energy coming from the Pleiades Sun, Alcyone.”"
“Let’s take full advantage of this great Cosmic Moment when the Pleiades sends us its extraordinary energies of Light to work miracles in the Minds and Hearts of each one of the participants at this wonderful Galactic Conjunction.”
“The Pyramid of K’uKuulKaan at Chichen Itza was dedicated to the Pleiades Constellation and its Seven Majestic Suns. So, open your Heart and receive the light of the Pleiades. Unite with our beloved Earth in a unique synchronization in the Space of No-Time. Let the light of the Pleiades and the Maya Masters guide you and illuminate you!”

From Aluna Joy:
“The next large wave we see that you will experience profoundly is a total solar eclipse on May 20th. In the path of this total solar eclipse, your dimension will begin an entire reboot of its operating system on your Earth.”
“As the sun is blocked so perfectly by your moon, in this very still, no-time place, a new operation system will be created and uploaded into your body as well as your world, solar system and universe.”
“Remember that this is a universal shift and recalibration . . . not just a planetary one. We are shifting with you, as well as Ascended Masters and Angelic Realms. We are all transforming together as ONE in unity.”
“If you are in the path of the shadow of this eclipse, the download will be quicker, more complete and graceful. You will become the living messengers for this new download for the rest of the world that did not have the luxury to travel into the eclipse path.”
“This new operating system will begin to spread across the Earth over some time (a month or two). Again we strongly say, gather with fearless ones on the days surrounding this reboot. Gather with ones that come from the inner knowledge of Love, trust and truth that this transformation of our reality is already victorious.”

 *NEW UPDATE*
Here’s another great download from astrologer Patricia Liles from the PowerPath.com:
“Get ready for Shift Time! The cosmic energy is creating some major energy portals now until the end of June…”
“A solar eclipse is always at New Moon, and it occurs when the Moon, of perfect size and distance, passes between the Sun and us here on Earth and blocks out the rays of our Sun.  Almost every indigenous culture honors and worships the Sun our source of life-light, heat, energy. “
“The very electro-magnetics of our Earth and our bodies are connected to the Sun, so when there is an interruption of that communication flow with an eclipse situation, a brief opportunity for a reset of our entire system is experienced.  Upgrades take place, frequencies shift, the past is easily shed; we can step rapidly through to the other side newly unencumbered.  A completion and a new beginning simultaneously unfold…”
“It’s a time of new beginning.  Energy can shift on a dime.  With the right use of intention, we can make good use of this portal for perceptual shift to take place in our old ways of thinking – about our self, our world, the past, the future.”
“Let’s keep in mind that this eclipse at 0º Gemini is aligned with the Pleiades star system that source of ancient wisdom with which many of the most powerful temples on the planet are aligned.  (the Pyramids at Giza, Teotihuacán, Tikal, Palenque, Stonehenge, the Parthenon, …have we built anything lately?)  Put yourself in a powerful place, get quiet, empty, and centered and avail yourself to some of the most focused energy of the times.”
“Our Gemini thinking/communication systems are being further upgraded to realize the direct link between our thoughts and our creations.  We break free of old thought forms and our old story by greater awareness of our own spiritual connections and by taking the longer, big-picture, philosophical view that opposite sign Sagittarius provides.  You cultural creatives who have been consciously accessing the quantum field in your lives for some time may feel great joy at the quick magic at your mental fingertips…”
T”he Sun and Moon at 0º Gemini are riding with the South Node 5º.  South Node represents what we have brought forward from the past to resolve and complete in this lifetime because we are ready.  The luminaries, Sun/Moon are turning the spotlight on the issues of how we think and use our minds to keep the old hurts and stories roiling in our heads.”
” A strong square from Neptune (through August) points to our addictions and says, ‘Enough!’  Yes, we may have been through some tough collective lifetimes through the age of Pisces, but the Age of the Martyr has had its day, and we need to forgive and release those experiences collectively.  The masculine played an important role in the dance of the patriarchy and it needs now to be healed and brought into balance in all of us.”
“Embracing spiritual practice and focusing one’s creative intelligence (same thing) couldn’t be more important at this time.  It’s a time of the West on the medicine wheel where we need to let go and dream a new dream.  Lift your hearts to the Sun on this powerful eclipse and expand your relationship to All That Is.”
