12 Earth / CABAN – Journey of Change


12 Earth / CABAN

12 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

12 is the Tone of Understanding. This is day when disassociated parts come together and a new Truth sinks in. Tone 12 holds the energy for reflection that allows for a new Realization.

Earth/CABAN is the Day Sign of Movement that draws our awareness to our Oneness with a body in motion. The Cherokee associate this energy with the Heron, a creature that lives a life of perpetual movement and migration. Heron is also compared to the phoenix that rises from the ashes of its former self. The Aztec Day Sign, Ollin, is defined simply as Movement, the fundamental evidence of “life energy.”

GREEN DAY: Element of Ether
12 Earth/CABAN, Kin 77, is a Portal Day that magnifies our experience through a thinning of the veil. Portal Days activate our gifts of Intuition and Knowing. Corresponding with Tone 12’s energy of Understanding, today’s Portal offers potential for a major new Revelation.

This is a day for reflection. We are given a “Gift of Retrospection” to draw deeper meaning from the experiences of this cycle. We are called to be the Conscious Observer of our Journey of Change.

CABAN reminds us of our Oneness with the Earth. Even when we are standing still, we are One in perpetual movement.  Seasons change in synchronicity with the Earth’s pattern of movement, and so are we changed by our pattern of movement.

This summer I began feeding the birds on my balcony. I was excited when my handfuls of seed drew an occasional Stellar’s Jay and Northern Flicker. It began as a small mixed gathering of Finches, Sparrows, and Chickadees. Winter came and I felt committed to save their lives, at least until Spring. 🙂 More friends were invited and now a flock of Starlings has followed along. Compelled by 17F degree weather to offer more and more seed, my balcony has become a bio-hazard. I see how a pattern of movement ran a natural course of change. (More seed. More birds. And, I never saw this coming.)

Our Spiritual Transformation was set into motion by a Force of Divine Energy. We don’t have to change ourselves. By the Choice of our own Free Will, a Transformation will run a Natural Course in accordance with a Divine Plan.

By the Forces of Nature we are synchronized with the Movement of our Mother.  For all that She’s endured, today is a day to Give Something Back.

To all my relations, may we exercise our Gift of Intuition as we Reflect on our patterns of movement. May we see beyond the unknown by imagining the natural course that would follow. Our Spiritual Aspirations align us with a Divine Plan. We can lay down our fear that we’re not enough when we recognize we are One in the Movement of a Divine Transformation.

in lak’ech, i am another you

12 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)

Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.

Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.

Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Egyptian Phoenix. One Myth has it that a Beautiful Young Maiden (the Heron Spirit Bird) fell from the Tree of Life in the Sky Vault, & Found no Place to Land on the Primordial Sea. Turtle came to the Surface of the Water & gave her a Place to Land. She nested & Laid her Cosmic Egg, From which came all Life on Earth.” (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hail)
