MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Born with a deep love for Mother Earth, Jaguar/IX directs our attention to the Natural World for a Lesson on Love. Jaguar guards the High Holy Places where Humans bring their offerings of Love. The Jaguar moves in stealth. Under the cover of darkness Jaguar is capable to see the Light of Love that emanates from every living thing.
Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and the ruling Force of Spirit throughout the jungles, plains and mountains. Known as the God/Goddess of gratefulness, Jaguar would lead us to a Deeper Appreciation for the gift of Earth’s Magic.
We are fascinated when we see Love expressed between creatures that we expect would see one another as enemy or prey. It’s a love so beautiful it’s difficult to turn away. These demonstrations of Love reveal that Love is a Natural Instinct, and one so powerful that it can override and supersede even the Natural Instincts of survival.
Love IS the magical force of Nature that is recognized by ALL of God’s creation. The power and magic of Pure Love is instantly recognizable by the virtue of its authenticity. This is the same Love we instantly recognize as a new Mother looks upon her child, or Love we can recognize when a groom first sees his bride.
When we give the Love of our Appreciation to the Natural World, all of God’s creation instantly recognizes our Love and responds to us in kind. Through our Love we become One with this source of power that can return Love through every living thing.
5 Jaguar/IX would encourage us to draw our power by spending time alone in nature where even the smallest creatures can teach us something about Love. When we send our Love to God’s creation, the Love returned is magnified with the power of healing and transformation.
To all my relations, may we stop every day, if only for a moment, to authentically express our Love and Appreciation for the beauty of the Earth and for all its creatures. May we experience a deeper understanding of Earth’s magic so we might recognize the Natural World as a place of unexpected miracles, wonders, and power.
in lak’ech, i am another you,

THE TRECENA OF DOG/OC
5 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther Saho’ni)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
Jaguar/IX: Born with a deep love of the Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength of character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains, and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as in material ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness. Patience born of strength and skill can turn to pounce of quick decision and action. Both bold and stealthful, Jaguars do not often attack directly and communications from them usually contain some mystery. In the absence of integrity, Jaguars power corrupts becoming a search for wealth and fame.
Totem-Jaguar: Guardian of the portals to other dimensions, shamanic abilities will open. Multi-dimensional magic. Healer, leader, way shower energy when used for spiritual growth. Abuse would be using this power for control or negative purposes. Must find a powerful balance.
Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Symbol – comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, magicians. The early-morning Leo constellation Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardians of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Shapeshifters, manipulators of manifestations. Unlimited imaginations, visualizations, spellbinding speakers.
NEW DAY KEEPERS: My sacred intention for the new Tzolk’in round is to offer more personal support to those who may want to learn more about ways to draw personal meaning from the calendar. I will be offering an Introductory Guided Course for Day Keepers in the near future. Contact me if this is something you would be interested in! Also, if you’d just like help identifying your Day Sign, I’m more than happy to help. Blessings, in lak’ech Debra (email@example.com)
