We arrive at 1 Deer/MANIK from a personal pilgrimage of Spirit through the trecena of Jaguar/IX. Deer/MANIK brings the energy to transform our higher consciousness into real-life applications we carry into the world.
We can employ our Spirit Tools of being vigilant and looking for the deeper meaning, to discover more Spirit Tools that will be just as meaningful.
Deer/MANIK is the sign of the Mayan Priest. Guided by Manik, We will be fired and proven as worthy Spirit Tools to be used by God’s hand.
THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK – INTEGRATION OF SPIRIT
1 Deer/MANIK (Cherokee, Deer/Ahwu’sdi)
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 best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.
Deer/MANIK (Hand): Deer are spirit tools. Silence itself is a spiritual experience for Deer. For Deer life is a pilgrimage. Deer are dominant persons who defend the people and will make sacrifices for others. The spirit of Deer upholds the pillars of the four directions. With the power inherent in the number four, Deer pushes away bad influences or negative energies. Skill and quality of work are very important to Deer. They are presented with tools for every task in life and it is with these that they are able to rise above limitations. Deer has a habit of keeping every tool it has ever used. This leads to clutter and indecision, loss and procrastination. When confronted with promises not kept, Deer becomes stubborn, manipulative and evasive.
Cherokee, Deer/Ahwu’sdi: Symbolized by Constellation Galagina, the Stag, known as Taurus, the Bull. It does not include the Pleiades and Hyades clusters which in Cherokee are viewed as separate. To feed, gatherers of food and supplies, they enjoy rituals, ceremonials, feasts, the souls of hospitality, sociability. Freedom versus security issues often inspire leadership and unique solutions. Combined with artistic and inspiring energies in harmony with lunar cycles, they nourish the clans. Totem-Deer: A priest or shaman, a powerful person in general, to overwhelm an individual with one’s personal power, divination; inclined to become a teacher, healer, guru, civic leader, or politician. Ability to create harmonic resonance.
Deer/MANIK empowers us to walk in our strength and integrity. Deer brings the purpose of transformation and as a Day Sign of water and the emotions. Pay attention to your feelings and inner urging. Deer could guide us by our heartstrings.
Galactic Tone 1 presents us with a new beginning and sends inspiration for the dreams that will be intentions for the Deer/MANIK trecena. Deer is also the day to discover personal limitations so we can be given the Spirit Tools to overcome them.
As the symbol of the Maya High Priest, Deer/MANIK will ask us to invest ourselves in service to others. Walking together we can send forth the intention of Peace and Harmony. Peak days of this trecena begin on 6 Road/EB, focusing our peak experiences on how we navigate our “road to destiny.” 7 Reed/BEN, 8 Jaguar/IX, and 9 Eagle/MEN are all Day Signs that assist in our communion with Divine Spirit.
To all my relations, may we wait with anticipation and gratitude for the new inspiration that will help us find our direction for this cycle of Spiritual Empowerment.
in lak’ech, I am another you
