…Chapter 17 of The Egyptian Book of the Dead makes reference to two critical events that you need to be made aware of. An astronomical sign appeared to the Egyptians in the year 9792B.C., that caused them great concern. The celestial event was the the retrograde motion of the planet Venus through the constellation Orion. What is important to note is that there are only two dates when Venus will be in retrograde through Orion while the earth’s pole precession is the same; 9792B.C and 2012A.D
Slosman's translation of Chapter 17 of the Book of the Dead implies that the Earth has previously undergone some kind of pole-shift which caused the "sun to rise at a new horizon", and that Osiris, who was represented in the sky by the Orion constellation, had something to do with it. This could have been via an axis shift, crustal displacement, or a change in the direction of rotation. Slosman also gives "an intermediate note" that this event - the Great Cataclysm - happened on July 27th in the year 9792 BC
Orion had incredible significance for the Egyptians in that Orion represented Osiris in the sky. During 9792B.C. and with Venus in retrograde, an “event” occurred that caused “… the sun to rise at a new horizon.” Disturbingly, the text goes on to say that “The sun moved from his wonted course, twice rising where it now sets and twice setting where it now rises.” , and “The Old Lion turned around
The Sun was reborn from a new horizon, as the Earth came to a stand-still in its axial rotation, and began to rotate in the opposite direction. From this point on, the precession of the equinoxes were reversed, so that the equinox sun slowly precessed back out of Leo into Cancer.. …the cataclysm will be caused by a major magnetic reversal on the Sun, that reverses the earth's magnetic poles, and they also … repeat from The Mystery of the Crystal Skulls … "just before sunset, Central American time, 21-22* December 2012"
… who based it around his discovery that the Birth of Venus occurred in the same symbolic way, on 12 August 3114 BC, at the start of the current 13-Baktun cycle . However, John Major Jenkins checked and double-checked Gilbert's claims and found Gilbert had made a mistake. He then interviewed him, but Gilbert had no explanation . In the same interview, regarding the observation that the complex mathematics and graphs in The Mayan Prophecies do not actually explain the end of the 13-Baktun cycle in 2012

For the Earth to change its rotation that would require a very large braking force. That much force would rip the planet apart. Now even if it did stop the force need to start it back up the other way would rip it apart was well. To change rotation with the planet to remain in one piece would take a long time. Then once it got stopped it would take just as long to get started up again. I just do not see how it could happen.
The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.
But for the Earth to change its direction of rotation?

So what would happen if the poles reversed?
aside from I think modern technology as we know it taking a dive.

Rock evidence on the sea floor suggests that the magnetic poles have switched a few times over the past many many years. But for the Earth to change its direction of rotation?Impossible.
As a previous poster mentioned, for the earth to stop and change rotational direction it would require immense forces that would probably tear the planet apart if performed over a short period of time. However, the earth could change rotational direction as viewed by an observer off planet if, the poles were to physically flip while the rotation remained constant. That would produce a sun that rises in the west and sets in the east. And if you don't believe me, spin a ball and turn it upside down. Now the real problem is what could cause a physical inversion of the planet, which I can only imagine would be an extremely powerful magnetic field, since it is unlikely that the gravitational field of a passing planet could change our rotational orientation. So, if the sun sent out a dense and large plasma cloud from a solar flare that contained a sufficiently strong magnetic field of opposing orientation to earth's, it is possible we could be physically flipped without losing much rotational speed and then the sun would rise in the west. That would be a helluva ride to be sure!

This is some interesting info, op. Is it true that Venus hasn't gone retrograde through Orion since 9792 BC? I'm not saying you or your source is lying...but it is one of the few things in your post that is pretty easy to fact check.
this means that between 1924 and 2012 there are 12 retrograde loops of Venus above Orion.
The loop in 2012 was at first thought by the authors of The Orion Prophecy to be the same as the 9792 BC loop, (p.137-138), then they realized that in 2012, the loop appeared to the right of Orion, while in 9792 BC, it had appeared to the left of Orion:
