The Long Count’s “zero date”was set at a point in the past marking the end of the third world and the beginning of the current one, which corresponds to 11 August 3114 BC in the propleptic Gregorian calendar. This means that the fourth world will also have reached the end of its 13th b’ak’tun, or Mayan date 188.8.131.52.0, on 21 December 2012.
Let’s have a peek at these dates by means of a synoptical astrology software called Inner Sky Electrum, the unique astrological tool displaying tropical and sidereal zodiacs together with the true stellar constellations.
