It's not as if our Solar System is jumping onto a fast spinning fairground ride to be jolted off in a different direction. The extremely weak
gravitational effects between us and anything we may be approaching will incur phenomenally slow changes relative to our perception. It is unlikely
there will be any observable effect within the lifetime of our Sun.
Regarding 2012 - In ancient times astrology and astronomy were pretty much the same thing. Wise men looked to the heavens for control, stability and
routine. No matter what changed on Earth itself, the passage of stars could always be relied upon to tell us when to plough the fields, sow the seed,
reap the corn, dry the fruit etc. Man himself invented clocks and calendars. The astrological zodiac and the 26,000 year cycle in which the Earth
passes through it, form the basis of a calendar that was used by almost all of the early civilisations including the Mayans, Sumerians, Tibetans,
Egyptians, Hopi and Cherokee.
We are now approaching the end of the first cycle of that man-made calendar. It will be no more significant than a clock passing midnight. One day
ends, another one begins. Nothing actually changes other than our 'labelling' it a different day - another rotation. The whole point of a
'circular' calendar is that it will always carry on, there is actually no 'end'.
Any amateur astronomer will tell you that no matter how much planets are in conjunction or how stars are aligned, it will have absolutely no effect
whatsoever on us.
