These dates and events are the inspirations of Carl Johan Calleman, who is an interpreter of the Mayan Calendar, and the generally-accepted expert on the subject.
In brief, Calleman says this about May 27-28, 2010:
"For all those seeking to become part of the new species of human beings endowed with an unlimited consciousness, this is a time to absorb the new energies of universality."I admit to not being very knowledgeable about the Mayan Calendar, so for those who are interested in more information on that subject and these dates in particular, I will include a few links at the end of this post.
Even according to western astrology, however, May 27-28 are important days. On those dates, we will see the Full Moon, and also experience Uranus' ingress into Aries -- a powerful time to be aligning ourselves with a shift in consciousness. These days will bring the first wave of the potent energies that will be with us through the beginning of August.
On July 17-18, the dates Calleman indicates for the Conscious Convergence, we will just have experienced a Total Solar Eclipse (July 11), and will be working with the intense energies of the T-square between Pluto, Saturn and Uranus/Jupiter. According to my ephemeris, there are no exact major planetary aspects on those two days -- but with the Moon in Libra, it will be an important time for finding balance and harmony in the midst of the changes that will no doubt be occurring.
In reality, with Uranus and Jupiter entering Aries, and with the ongoing T-square energies, it's hard to find any days between late June and early August that are NOT powerful in some way. And, these planetary interactions will definitely be inspiring/pushing us to make a leap in consciousness, and to align more completely with the highest aspects of our beings. (See my post "This summer's planetary alignments," below.)
