MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” – Lao Tzu
On Galactic Tone 13 we arrive at a new vista. From the new perspective of our ascension Serpent/CHICCHAN ignites us by revealing the success of our latest efforts.
In the day-to-day our changes may seem like minor adjustments, though the consistency of our incremental movements forward has far more impact on the road to our destiny than any occasional monumental effort.
Like watching children grow, the closer one is to the action the more difficult it is to see the changes as they are happening. We place significance on our milestones because they reveal the evidence of transformation. 13 Serpent/CHICCHAN marks such a milestone.
THE TRECENA OF REED/BEN – DIVINE CORRESPONDENCE
13 Serpent/Chicchan (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI)
Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.
Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.
Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.
Divine Correspondence – a God sighting journey
13 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Kin 65) is a milestone that marks the end of the first “season” of the Tzolk’in round. There are 4 seasons of 65 days (one for each direction), guarded by the 4 Day Signs of Serpent/Chicchan (Igniting), Dog/Oc (Loving), Eagle/Men (Corresponding), and Sun/Ahau (Actualizing). Tone 13 of each of these Day Signs marks the end of a season. 13 Chicchan guards a season of birth, regeneration, and the awakening of our sixth sense, which the Maya refer to as “lightening in the blood.”
The next season, guarded by Dog/OC, expands our capacity for Unconditional Love. We are preparing to embark on the season’s first trecena of Transformer/CIMI… a 13-day cycle that highlights major transformation through a new application of effort.
Today is a day to celebrate our accomplishments. Looking at my own progress, it wasn’t that long ago (February) that I was getting up at 3AM to write this post, based on an arbitrary rule that it had to be written after midnight. Just learning to pay attention to my thoughts brought a major improvement to my ability to follow my dream.
Looking back for evidence of your own transformation produces the spark that ignites your next effort. Fluid, flexible, and quick is the energy of Serpent/Chicchan that stokes the energy of our own creative life force. Serpent is known for delivering a revelation accompanied by a physical sensation in the body – a knowing, sixth sense, and lightening in the blood.
To all my relations, may we be ignited by the our own realization of becoming. May our eyes be opened to see that we are our own closest evidence of our correspondence with God. As we enter the season for Unconditional Love, may we reach beyond the limit of our own fear to Love Every Thing Unconditionally.
