MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
“Serpent lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself.” Cherokee Calendar
We are ignited to fulfill our life’s purpose by the consciousness of Spirit in the body. Serpent/ CHICCHAN serves as a catalyst to fire our supernatural senses that the Maya call “lightening in the blood.” This is a subtle, yet powerful energy that offers us the Sixth Sense of Spirit.
Numbers 8 and 9 have a particularly sacred meaning to the Maya. The Quiche/Maya of Guatemala hold their most important festivals on these days. Tone 8 is defined as a Solar Number of Pure Spirit, and 8 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Kaan, in the Mayan/Quiche language) is recognized as a Holy Day of Spiritual Strength.
THE TRECENA OF FLINT/ETZNAB
8 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eights carefully weighs all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement ‘as above, so below,’ from simplicity to infinity, the energy of eight organizes all levels of creation, some eights are ‘neat freaks.’
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.
Womb of Re-Creation Day 8
8 Serpent/CHICCHAN brings justice through balance and harmony. An awakening of our spiritual instincts brings balance to a Divine Intention, “as above, so below.”
Though we may be aware of instinctual behavior in the animal world, we fail to recognize these gifts within ourselves. What separates us from the animals is an intellect that poses the potential for our distraction. This is a gift we can only sense by paying attention.
The coincidences in our lives reveal the clues of our spiritual senses – times we picked up the phone just as a friend was about to call, or perhaps more profoundly, when we were guided away from a potential danger. We overlook the true extent of our spiritual nature. And worse, many of our sources of distraction would convince us we have no power at all.
This is a very important day to hold the vision of our own Divine Nature. We are called to lay down the weight of the world. Just as animals sense the seasons and direction for their migration, we are also created so we may be guided by Spirit.
8 Serpent/CHICCHAN brings the intention of recognizing our own Spiritual Power. This is the peak energy of this trecena that engages us with the momentum of descending energy where we become the conduit for a Divine Intention of God.
To all my relations, may we light the candles on our sacred altars to honor the gift of Divine Spirit. May we accept our own Divinity as the greatest of all God’s gifts, empowering the most important purpose for our creation.
