Cosmic importance of January 12, 2020 to Black Race traditional timing

January 12th 2020 is believed to be the beginning of the end of the structures that have arrested the economic, sociopolitical and cultural development of the Black Race, courtesy of the Yoruba traditional universe (Eledunmare) through ‘Oya’ and ‘Obaluaye.’

From the cosmic point of perspective, 2020 predictions from the 16-bit Original African Information Retrieval system “Ifa-Afa-Iha-Eha-Fa” has indicated that ‘Odu Irosun Oyeku’ typifies this year, but without a global overview, short term interpretations that run contrary to long term objectives.

The ‘Odu’ advises that looking back to move forward is necessary, in order not to repeat past mistakes. Accordingly, a short term myopic interpretation of looking back to the ancestors restricts it to Yoruba, as opposed to going back to the roots of ‘Ifa-Afa-Iha-Eha-Fa’ that spread across South and Middlebelt of Africa. Without the benefit of a longer universal time perspective, the interpretations will only result in the same strategic and tactical errors that have beset the Black Race.

Arguably, the loss of millions of our people to Trans Atlantic slavery and perhaps, the loss of our lands to colonization is seen as the greatest loss of our traditional timing and knowledge banks. This loss practically blinded us as people. It is also noticed that Yoruba Stargazers known as ‘Aworawo’ have practically disappeared from the Original African cultural landscape.

At the beginning of human civilization, it was the understanding of cosmic sciences that enabled our ancestors to, not only be able to know planting seasons based on the movement of the Sun (Orunmila), but also different human endeavors spiritually linked to other planets attached to various ‘Orishas’.

While the physically blind can’t see the Sun predict its immediate weather conditions, our cultural blindness prevents us from knowing what time it is apart from those tied to food, sex and partying. Not advanced concepts of social change which will inspire and empower our sociopolitical evolution as a people. We have become like sheep. While the Gregorian solar calendar counts 2020 Sun revolutions since it began compared to Yorubas lunar calendar of 10,060 years of 13 moons a year, only the Yoruba calendar has witnessed several great years to understand the evolution and fall of civilizations and empires.

This 2020 cosmic alignment is also very important because in the 1770 alignment, Saturn (Babaluaye) didn’t meet ‘Oya’ (Pluto) at that point to make a greater upheaval. The last time they meet was in 1520 leading to breakup of Roman Catholicism by France and England, as well as the Original African cultural sphere by Oyo and Benin. Not only earthly but heavenly constructs were smashed and broken apart by Oya ferocious winds of revolutionary change.

Starting from January 12 2020 throughout the 2020 decade all old systems, political, economic and cultural systems will be broken and new ones will evolve, as we also witness a global change of consciousness from religious and political dogma to fact-based enlightenment and quest for cultural, economic and political justice in the Age of Aquarius (Shango). Normally a violent time of change, it is hoped that the presence of Jupiter (Obatala) at the same angle of the sky during 2020 will enable a calming intelligent beginning to this transit.

Astrologers say that cosmic influences show favorable periods for certain endeavors but to enjoy or avoid them requires positive action. If the stars show that you will make money, it requires you make the effort to be blessed by favorable influences, otherwise, the opportunity passes you by in blissful ignorance. Queen Elizabeth I used astrology through John Dee to make pivotal decisions that uplifted Britain into global ascendancy.

From the short Mercury orbit linked to ‘Esu’, ‘Orisha’ of Information, whereby they knew bad days to avoid going out; to the slightly longer Mars orbit of about two and a half years linked to ‘Ogun’, ‘Orisha’ of war and positive action; to the 12 year Jupiter orbit linked to ‘Obatala’, law and religion, the 84 year Uranus orbit linked to ‘Shango’ and Justice, and the 246 year Pluto orbit, the longest orbit in the solar system, linked to ‘Oya’ and the tenets of revolutionary change. However the longest orbit is that of the entire universe put at 26,000yrs and divided into twelve 2,000yr eras spiritually tied to the coming of God/Messiah/Mahdi. You have 8 cycles of Oya social change to arrive at a change of global consciousness brought every 2000 years.

Pluto, the planet attached to Oya, was at the same position it was 250yrs ago, when in 1770s Bashorun Gaa usurped the power of Alaafin of Oyo, signaling the beginning of the end of Oyo empire. Being a global phenomenon, the independence of USA signalled the beginning of the end of British and French global supremacy. 250yrs earlier, around 1520, at the same position Pluto’s winds of global structural change brought the emergence of France and England to challenge the spiritual and political dominance of Spain and the Holy Roman Empire.

Likewise in 1520, Nupe Islamists attacked Oyo Ile making the royal court move to Igboho until Oyo developed its Aare Oonakankanfo military institution. The 1270 transit had ushered in the use of paper money and gunpowder that Europeans used to shake off Islamic global dominance that had ruled them for 500 years. There are 8 ‘Oya’ cycles in a Great Year, 2000 year epochs, and this present cycle is more poignant because it also coincides with the change of the Great Year.

European powers still consult cosmic sciences and know what Oya time it is. Just as well as the Muslim Sufis that see it as a time of the great Mahdi. This is why the global consciousness of Anglo-Saxons in UK and USA have opted for neo-conservatives to strengthen their global structures in this time of great change. This could also be the inspiration of Islamists fanatically support for Buhari, who is supposed to drain the swamp and empower his people.

Unfortunately, the two largest Original African groups, Yoruba and Igbo, and the rest of the Niger-Congo ethnolinguistic family, despite still being able to read Ifa, have lost their sense of traditional spiritual timing to give them a global perspective. Even though they can be seen agitating under their small umbrella groups, not being able to read the cosmic weather, they don’t realize that this storm can’t be withstood with small separatists’ umbrella groups but by coming together to build a strong foundation that can withstand the storm of ages, to avoid being uprooted and blown across the world.

Ifa has prescribed Irosun Oyeku for 2020 to give us a strong platform in preparation of the turbulent change of ages, but its fractional interpretation prevents the understanding that it is a call for Original African cultural unity of the Niger Congo ethnolinguistic family.

We must be prepared for the rough change of Ages by articulating our cultural origins and linkages in order to unite as a cultural platform, away from partisan or separatist politics.
