1 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’ O’JJ)
THE TRECENA OF WISDOM/CIB
Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work bestt when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.
Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign, enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valieant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons. (A good day to sit on a rock.)
Cherokee, Owl/U’GUKU’ O’JJ: Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes. Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritive. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.

On Tone 1, we begin again. We are welcomed to a new trecena under the guidance of Wisdom/CIB. CIB embodies the wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom comes from all directions to be present with us in the here and now. We bring the new Spiritual Gifts we were presented by Akbal to lay them at the feet of our ancestors so that we may be given the wisdom to use them for their highest purpose.
We will be opened to new wisdom as we are able to bend in humility to the guidance of the wise ones who have gone before. Theirs are the enduring stories, the lessons passed down over the ages from one generation to the next. From the Truth we may learn under CIB’s guidance, we are prepared to write a new story… for EVERY Spirit brings forth new lessons and experiences worthy to be carried forward to the next generation.
In the Medicine Circle, I was taught that when one approaches a teacher for guidance they should bring a bountiful offering in proportion to the wisdom they expect to receive.
The Christmas season is a time of expectations. As children, we have been taught by both Christian and secular traditions that we have something to look forward to. I still believe in the miracles of the season.
The holidays are a time when I anticipate a new Spirit Gift in the way of a new piece of wisdom… a revolutionary insight. I have never failed in receiving the gift. Sometimes the gift has been a painful self-discovery, though each year the gift has been easily recognized as a blessing for the new understanding and peace they bring to my life.
As we begin our journey through Wisdom/CIB, let us come with our highest of expectations. Day 1 is the day for a new inspiration. Expect a new idea, something more wonderful than you have thought of before. Expect to learn something new. Expect a miracle.
To all my relations, we are the students – prepare us to receive the grand lessons of the ancient ones. Let the gifts and the attention we bring honor the ancient ones and reflect our highest expectations.

As we are beginning a new 13-day cycle, I invite you to join in the journey. In addition to the inspiration of the day, visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide where I will be sharing the practical ways to follow the calendar for daily guidance. You can start by finding your own Day Sign. There are several calculators on my Tzolkin page. Your personal Day Sign reflects your life purpose and those gifts that the calendar would serve to empower. I’m here to help and to answer any questions I can and share additional resources.
P.S. (Personal Synchronicity)
Today as we enter the trecena of Wisdom/CIB, the following post is brought forward to share the sacred places of the ancient ones.
