Harmonic Convergence and August 17, 2000
By Leigh Tremaine

This year, August 17 will be the thirteenth anniversary of Harmonic
Convergence. Michael Irving of World Action, Patricia Cota-Robles of the
World Congress on Illumination, and others like them, are working in their
own way to rekindle the original vision of Harmonic Convergence by calling
upon lightworkers and those who dream of an awakened humanity, to gather
together on August 17, 2000 to ground the vision of global awakening.

The original vision of Harmonic Convergence was of a global awakening to
unity and love through divine transformation. It was initiated in 1987 by
the Mayan scholar, Jose Arguelles. Working with the cycles of the Mayan
Calendar, he inspired many thousands around the world to gather at sacred
sites on August 16-17 to meditate and hold the vision as part of an event
called "Harmonic Convergence". According to his interpretation of Mayan
cosmology, this time marked the end of the cycle of Nine Hells and the
beginning of a new age of universal peace, as foretold in the Mayan
Prophecies. For Jose it marked a moment when the Earth came into harmonic
resonance with the galactic centre and was impregnated with transformational
galactic energies. His original press release went out at a time when a
major supernova appeared in the sky - the brightest supernova since 1604. In
astrology supernovae represent a massive infusion of galactic light, and
this one, when converted from equatorial to zodiacal coordinates, was in
Aquarius - the sign of the New Age and of the awakening of group
consciousness. In his press release, he wrote:

"Beginning at dawn everywhere on the Earth on Sunday, August 16, 1987,
144,000 humans are being called upon to create a complete field of trust by
surrendering themselves to the planet and to the higher galactic
intelligences which guide and monitor the planet. At that time and
continuing through Monday, August 17, the higher galactic intelliegnces will
be transmitting a collective planetary vision as well as messages of
personal destiny to and through these people, the rainbow humans."

The number 144,000 is significant in Gematria (Hebrew numerology), being
connected with the manifestation of light. In the above passage it can be
taken symbolically as the quantity of fully conscious beings who are working
together to achieve a critical mass of awakening within the collective
consciousness.

Jose defined Harmonic Convergence as "the point at which the counter-spin of
history finally comes to a momentary halt, and the still imperceptible spin
of post-history commences". Certainly, since Harmonic Convergence we have
seen the Berlin Wall come down, the end of the Cold War, and more and more
people waking up. Many commentators are claiming that fewer of the
predictions given by Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce are coming true. It seems
that on one level the course of history has indeed changed. Yes, there are
new challenges to face, such as the centralisation of global power, the
growing rich-poor divide, and ecological destruction (all of which are
linked); but there is a new interconnectivity and global conscience that is
starting to emerge, stimulated by the growth of the Internet, and evidenced
by the mass protests against the World Trade Organisation, the genetic
engineering of food, and Third World debt.

To support the original vision of Harmonic Convergence, Michael Irving has
launched an initiative called 'World Action', which uses August 17 as the
focal date for an annual 'World Gathering'. His suggestion is that we gather
at sacred sites and places of natural beauty, make contact with other people
who are concerned for the Earth and Humanity, network, celebrate, and link
up with participants all around the world. The nearest Saturday or Sunday to
August 17 can also be used for this.

Michael's call raises an important question: Do we still care and feel
inspired enough to come together as one in meditation and celebration as we
did originally in 1987? Michael is in effect asking us to reacquaint
ourselves with our collective vision as lightworkers, and to continue to
empower it at all times so that it may reach fruition. Interestingly,
surveys conducted at Yale University revealed that those individuals who had
a clear vision of their life aims and wrote it down, empowering it every
day, eventually found success in their lives, while those who did not do
this felt much less fulfilled. The same principle applies on the collective
level, and the empowering of the vision occurs when we unite together in
Spirit.

While new energies seem to be coming to Earth to help lay the foundation for
the Light Age, it is up to us whether we wish to build upon that foundation,
for we have the free will. Do we care passionately enough to invest our
energy into the vision of collective awakening, no matter what the cost? Do
we care passionately enough to unite in our diversity to dance our dream
awake - to catalyse the awakening of the collective consciousness through
the resonant effect of working together as one? The world is what we make
it, for our thoughts create it in every moment of our being. In the past we
were initiated in temples. We have now graduated to the temple of Planet
Earth, and our initiation concerns us moving beyond the limits of our
personal ego to experience our being from a collective perspective as well
as from a personal perspective. Whether we succeed or not in this task will
determine the future course of our history.

When we look at the astrology of August 17, 2000, we see Uranus, the planet
of awakening, forming an exact conjunction with the asteroid Juno in
Aquarius, the sign of the New Age. Juno represents how we organise our
relationships, on a personal or group level, particularly through ceremonial
activity. Could the message be any clearer? The Moon in Pisces will heighten
our sensitivity to Spirit, and will form an exact opposition to the asteroid
Pallas in Virgo. Pallas, the Goddess of Wisdom, who sprang fully grown from
her father's forehead (brow chakra), represents our own innate connection
with the Source, and the ways in which we give our vision practical
expression. Triggered by the Moon, it will help us to ground our
spirituality through the practical effort of Virgo. But with Mercury in Leo,
forming a close opposition to the conjunction of Uranus and Juno, we must
first have established a closer integration between our personal
preoccupations and our collective values. In other words, we must first have
moved beyond egoistic self-absorption to want to dance our dream awake.
