  Mesoamerica - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mesoamerica is the region extending from central Mexico south to the northwestern border of Costa Rica that gave rise to a group of stratified, culturally related agrarian civilizations spanning an approximately 3,000-year period before the European discovery of the New World by Columbus.
Mesoamerican is the adjective generally used to refer to that group of Pre-Columbian cultures.
Mesoamerica is also a canonical example of a Linguistic area: all of the major Mesoamerican languages show some subset of a pool of common traits, despite being made up of many different language families.

 Mesoamerican Astrology
To most of the Mesoamerican ancient cultures the world of the stars and heavens were as alive as the world of humankind who inhabited the Middleworld.

 Chronology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Chronology is the science of locating events in time.
A chronology may be either relative -- that is, locating related events relative to each other -- or absolute -- locating these events to specific dates in a Chronological Era.
Though chronologies formulated before the 1960s are subject to serious skepticism today, more recent results are more robust than readily appears to journalists and enthusiastic amateurs.

 Chronology
The following partial chronology juxtaposes the major political and societal developments in the areas of the world, with records of concurrent astrological and astronomical developments for the same time periods.
The importance of these developments (in the European) is the degree with which the psychological control factors of both government and religious hierarchies begin to usurp individual rights and freedoms of the individual to empower themselves through the knowledge of astrology, and/or to seek an understanding philosophically of their own place within the universe.
The evidence is, that Mesoamerican cultures (the Olmec being the formative culture) were not unlike Babylonian cultures in their reverence for the cycles of Venus, worship of the goddess, nature and the heavens in general.
