MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 brings the intention of assimilating our new knowledge into a the Whole of our Wisdom. Our gift of retrospection is highlighted to clearly see the ground we’ve covered. The Akbal trecena added another gift by connecting our Intellect and Intuition. Using these gifts together for the purpose of Hindsight, we can draw from both our Experiences of Spirit and Physicality. This is the day when Truth sinks in.
I’m inspired by the calendar’s perfect order in a Way of Acquiring Divine Wisdom. We are completing another Season of the 260-day Tzolk’in round. Our next trecena begins the last Season of the Tzolk’in Sacred Cycle of Transformation. We’ll have expanded opportunities in the next trecena to “Look back” again to see the Body of Wisdom we’ve assimilated over the whole of the Tzolk’in round.
Jaguar/IX is a Day Sign of Spirit whose way of seeing things is through the Whole of its Senses. Jaguar’s are seldom seen because they’re acutely aware of everything around them. Beyond their physical Senses, Jaguar is also magical in its ability to See into the Realm of Spirit. They are the shaman and the shape-shifter who can share their vision as they travel through time and space. The Jaguar can help us see into the future by leading us on a journey to our past.
Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign most capable to open our Highest Levels of Spiritual Consciousness. IX guides us to explore the accumulation of our Spiritual Truth. Our Intuition will help us to recall a state of mind we experienced just days or weeks ago that will reveal the Truth of our Transformation. We are most likely to see it when we follow a path of Intention (ie. pay attention to our thoughts and behavior). Our Life Experiences offer something to look back that can still hold a new Truth.
Today we are meant to Realize the Truth of Akbal’s Intention… that we would realize our Truth that as Beings of Spirit we hold the Power of All Possibility. Akbal means for us to see the Light that will always be shining in our darkness. Even in the Darkness of our Unconscious Thoughts a Light is Shining to draw our Fear from the Shadows. Instead of “fight or flight” we can learn to Stand in our Truth, knowing the moment we are willing to accept the experience as our Offering for Living, is the moment when we realize Pure Love. The Creator gave us our own Free Will so we could Claim an Accomplishment, Manifested by our Own Choice. We have been learning the Truth of our own Possibility.
On 12 Jaguar/IX of the last Tzolk’in round I noted the Olympic Games. Akbal’s realization of Dreams was playing out on the world stage, as Puerto Rico’s Monica Puig won their first-ever Gold Medal, and Wayde van Niekerk from South Africa broke a new world record. It suggests we have also Accomplished a Great Feat that we must look for to acknowledge. This is the Truth that Tone 12 would have us look back to see. If we take the time to look, we are offered a Gift of Divine Hindsight.
Jaguar/IX offers the Source of all Magic. Jaguar’s Magic is held as the Vibration of Deep Gratitude and Appreciation for Mother Earth. IX sees Mother Earth as the Source of Every Thing we are Given. Our Magic will be discovered as we Love our Experience of Life. The Earth reflects the Creator’s Consciousness in Creating this Beauty for us by Intention. The flowers were created for Us to See.
To all my relations, today may we reflect on our past to Anchor an Important Truth. We can start by looking at the beginning of the Tzolk’in round on October 22, 2016 (1 IMIX). The world around me reflects big changes since then. People who were distracted as the world spun by are now coming together to Stand in their Truth. We still have a long way to go. May we grasp what we’ve accomplished and see it in its True Light. We are establishing a pattern of movement that will lead us in the right direction. May we apply our Gift of Clairvoyance to see what the future could bring as we are transformed to grasp a higher view. May we recognize that whatever we have learned is only the beginning, and that “what was begun in us will be finished.” [Phillipians 1:6]
in lak’ech, I am another you

THE TRECENA OF NIGHT/AKBAL
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Night/AKBAL trecena.
12 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
Galactic Tone 12: Twelve is a gift of great capacity 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.
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 or 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.
Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Panther is symbolized by comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, and magicians. Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Panther is the Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardian of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Panthers have unlimited imaginations, visualizations, and are spellbinding speakers. The Totem Jaguar is the 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 for using this power for control or negative purposes; must find a powerful balance.
