The Mayas believe it is the home of their ancestors. The Pleiades star system is referred to as the seven sisters and our sun aligns with Alcyone every 52 years. In Mayan cosmology the precession of the Pleaides is tracked using the Calendar Round (52 years) and the New Fire ceremony.
This tracking system was developed at Teotihuacan in Central Mexico around 150 AD, however, according to Jenkins, it is at the Pyramid of Kukulcan at Chichen Itza that we find the significance of the upcoming shift of the ages.
Without going too much into a technical explanation, the solar zenith-passage date at Teotihuacan, was and still is May 17th, but the Mayas calculated a date for the latitude of Chichen Itza for the 21st century, when this passage occurs every May 20th (beginning May 17th and ending May 23rd).
This is important because in the 21st century May 20th aligns with a sun/pleiades conjunction that, due to precession, moves forward in the zodiac by one degree every 104 years (Two 52-year cycles.)
This united sun-Pleiades conjunction has moved toward the exact center of the midnight sky. Jenkins continues that “the united sun-Pleiades symbolize the serpent-bird deity Quetzalcoatl known to some as the Christ.” The Christ is also known in many cultures as the “son” or “sun”.
Like the solstice-galaxy alignment, this sun-Pleiades-zenith alignment is tied to the endtime prophecies."
