I agree about school opening. 2 nights 19:12:06 to find out.
The days symbolic meaning is interesting being the Neo Germanic linkage of the solar wheel.

The first Selichot service will be held around midnight on the following days of the secular calendar:
Laws and Customs
As the last month of the Jewish year, Elul is traditionaly a time of introspection and stocktaking -- a time to review one's deeds and spiritual progress over the past year and prepare for the upcoming "Days of Awe" of Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur.
As the month of Divine Mercy and Forgiveness (see "Today in Jewish History" for Elul 1) it is a most opportune time for teshuvah ("return" to G-d), prayer, charity, and increased Ahavat Yisrael (love for a fellow Jew) in the quest for self-improvement and coming closer to G-d. Chassidic master Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi likens the month of Elul to a time when "the king is in the field" and, in contrast to when he is in the royal palace, "everyone who so desires is permitted to meet him, and he receives them all with a cheerful countenance and shows a smiling face to them all."
Specific Elul customs include the daily sounding of the shofar (ram's horn) as a call to repentance. The Baal Shem Tov instituted the custom of reciting three additional chapters of Psalms each day, from the 1st of Elul until Yom Kippur (on Yom Kippur the remaining 36 chapters are recited, thereby completing the entire book of Psalms).

Elul is also the time to have one's tefillin and mezuzot checked by an accredited scribe to ensure that they are in good condition and fit for use.
I'm pretty sure the countdown was going to the University of Light website they were opening. :P
The alignment comes @ 11:11 a.m. on December 21, 2012, on Friday Uranus goes into Aries conduct Pluto in Capricorn...The Revolution of Love is being brought on by Aries in Uranus...and the implosion of all existing structures like government, politics, and "power-over" structures of the world is being brought on by pluto in Capricorn...they are going to go down fighting for sure...but whom is yet to be seen...the media seems to be telling us it is with Iran I'm told...<3<3<3
This we do not know. Like a tsunami, maybe the energy is invisible to our "sensors" as of now. But as the momentum grows and it get's closer to the shores of consciousness it may become a tidal wave of epic proportions. Quite possibly an anti tsunami of the most positive energy ever experienced.
Time of arrival: 11:11AM 12/21/2012 !?! It's anybody's guess but this is my focus instead of the fear driven destructive side I've been prone to for so many years.
I hope there wasn't a miscommunication. Even the negative takes time to materialize but without our added energy it will be less destructive...especially with the "seawalls" of love and light we are building to deflect the force. Emoticons make typed posts so much easier to interpret ;-)
Would that be 11:11 GMT? :)
No...GST!!! Galactic Standard Time. GST +11 on Earth LOL
I was just throwing out the interpretation with no clear direction. Used reply button at bottom of page in sheer laziness. Was not directed at you at all.
Omnilvx does have a homepage and application but I will not elaborate more. That's a personal journey.
Interesting....the clock has moved!!!
