About this Japanese earthquake...?
Do you think it's 'the beginning of 2012' like some of my friends have been freaking out about, or do you think the world is just going through some rough changes?

There's nothing unusual about this, earthquakes happen all the time. If you look at the statistics about worldwide earthquakes you can see the the number of quakes goes up and down from one year to the next. There hasn't been any dramatic increase in the number of quakes.

Well it's a pretty common occurrence for people who live within the 'Ring of Fire,' and Japan generally endure a massive earthquake like that every 50 years or so. In fact, this is not the top magnitude on recent record and in addition to this, the loss of life so far, though unclear, is not thought to exceed those of recent similar occurrences such as the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami.
The point I'm trying to make is that although this is a terrible and upsetting situation, this has been happening throughout time. More to the point, it will keep happening in the coming years, which is why Japan is very well prepared for this situations.
Lose sleep over the victims, not the thought you're next; you're not.

Yes, the "season" of 2012 started back in 2008. We are already in 2012. Not as a calendar date, but in the sense that we are in the period for the events to occur.
Check this out-
Full Moon at Perigree in an Excess of 4, 066 miles than the Normal Extreme of 225, 622 miles
The distance of the earth to the moon in miles varies in distance from 225, 622 miles to 252,088 miles in distance from one another. The extreme in proximity or "close-ness" to earth is the 225, 622 miles.
The full moon on March 19, 2011 will be 4, 066 miles closer, being at a distance of 221,556 miles from the earth on that date. The Spring Equinox is the next day. (Daylight Savings time begins Sunday March 13, 2011. - 1st Sunday in Lent, Daylight Savings Begins
Tuesday March 16, 2011 - The Ides of March "Beware the Ides of March!" (The ides are the 'middle')
Friday March 18, 2011 - The moon is on the celestial equator
Saturday March 19, 2011 - Full Worm Moon (moon at perigree in excess of extreme 4,066 miles
On Friday March 11, 2011 We have seen an 8.9 (or 8.8) earth quake hit Japan
On January 12, 2010 there was the 5.9 magnitude earthquake in Haiti
Page 108 of 2010 Old Farmer's Almanac says that when the moon "rides high" or "runs low" (The Moon is highest above or farthest below the celestial equator) that this begins a most likely five period when earthquakes are most likely ("rides high" for Northern Hemisphere and "runs low" for the Southern Hemisphere. Also there are two days in the month when the moon is on the celestial equator indicating the most likely time for an earthquake in either hemisphere). These days are marked in the Old Farmer's Almanac on the 'right hand pages for the calendar year.
When the Haitian quake hit Jan. 12, 2010 the moon "ran low"
The Japan quake on March 10, 2011. The moon "rides high" on the next day March 11, 2011 (which is still very close).
Next Saturday March 19, 2011 the full moon will be in excess of it's usual perigree by 4, 066 miles and the moon will be on the celestial equator (two days of the month when earthquakes are most likely to happen in either the Northern or Southern Hemispheres). It is a full Worm Moon (http://www.farmersalmanac.com/full-moon-… and most usually a full moon is bad enough, but this one is closer than it's usual perigree distance and it is right at the time when the moon is on the celestial equator.
The news reports about a connection between the Japan quake and the unusally large full moon next week say that there is no connection. They are probably answering that question in respect to the Japan quake being caused by moon riding high as opposed to the quake being caused by an unusually close perigree. You may be able to see the deception in that answer given to there being no connection.
We are in the "season" of 2012. The fall of the twin world trade centers conjured the thought that "Babylon the great, is fallen, come out of her...". The two towers looked like 11's. The thunderstruck tower card of the 22 Major arcana. 10 years and 1 from 9/11. That is 11. The 11th sphiroth is Da'ath. The "knowledge of" or 'vav' of knowing the other world. Full Moon in Libra on March 19, 2011 greatly fuels this desire for the other world.
There may be nothing to be concerned about, but I thought I'd pass it along as a "be-advised" or FYI. Take care.Source(s): The Old Farmer's 2010 Almanac (Southern Edition) by Robert B.

2012 is just Earth going through MAJOR changes. Many will die on 2012 but the world won't end.

your friends are stupid. they haven't take geography yet apparently. ring of fire=lots of earthquakes. every now and then you'll get a big one. catastrophic events happen all the time.

Yes, because there has never been an earthquake before.
- BrosephLv 49 years ago
Its just seismic activity
