MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The Next 13 Days…
Walking in the footsteps of Jaguar/IX, we begin a new trecena on a path to a Spiritual Experience. The Jaguar is the Day Sign of the shaman, tied directly to the source of all Earth Magic. IX is capable to connect us to the Sacred Energies that flow through all of creation.
Jaguar is a sign of Divine Mystery and the Super Natural. The Magic of Jaguar is born of Deep Gratitude and Love for Mother Earth.
Jaguars live their lives alone. As Jaguar’s only companion, Jaguar sees Mother Earth as the Source of every Blessing. Jaguar connects us to the Heartbeat of Mother Earth so we can experience this Magic within ourselves.
1st & 2nd UINALS: A Call & Response
The Tzolk’in reflects cycles of Human transformation. The first 20 days of the Tzolk’in calendar hold the energy of Number 1. The 1st Uinal marks a cycle of Divine Inspiration, which serves as a catalyst to Higher Consciousness. In the 260-day harvest cycle of our transformation, the 1st Uinal is the germination of a New Seed of our Self. We are Awakened by a Call from the Creator. The 2nd Uinal is the cycle of our Response to a Call to our Awakened Consciousness. Uinals 1 and 2 establish our Relationship with the Creator.
PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether
Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions and elevate our Awareness to our own Spiritual Gifts of Intuition and Knowing. The Jaguar/IX trecena has two Portals on the Peak Tones 7 and Tone 9. A Portal on 7 Sun/AHAU will magnify the Light of the Creator and Magnify our Connection to the Old Ones and their Wisdom. And, on 9 Wind/IK a Portal Magnifies the Voice that Calls us to a Higher Purpose.
PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance
- 6 Storm/CAUAC – generates momentum for Spiritual Growth through a Divine Spark from the Creator.
- 7 Sun/AHAU – establishes a Balance of the Above and the Below and brings Full Light to our identity as a Spiritual Being.
- 8 Crocodile/IMIX – initiates our Transformation as we are made capable to recognize the Voice of the Creator.
- 9 Wind/IK – brings Transformation through the discernment of the Higher Purpose of our Creation.
Each trecena, or Galactic Week, represents a “wave of time” made up of 13 Tones or frequencies of vibration. Each Tone represents an Intention in a Sacred Cycle of transformation. Each of the 20 Day Signs symbolize an Archetype or “personality” that demonstrates a way of being and a framework through which we can accomplish the Intention of the Tone. These “waves” are the incremental cycles of Human’s Transformation of Consciousness.
Each energy holds an aspect of “Light” and “Dark” – Red and Blue Day Signs represent the “Light” of incoming inspiration, and White and Yellow Day Signs represent the “Dark” that follows for the application of new awareness. In the “darkness” we generate our own “Light,” as the Wisdom of our Experience.
The “Light” of our New Awakening inspired us with a new Vision of our Self. As Dynamic Beings we are changed by every experience. We are never bound to a “static” identity of who we once were. Our experiences in the past are never the accurate representation of who we are Now. With each new Ascension we become something new. Our past self can be left behind with a blessing for helping us to become who we are now. We were also inspired to see the Truth that we are Not Alone. The Creator is an ever-present source of Divine Guidance. The purpose of every Transformation is to raise our Consciousness to the Truth of an Enduring Unconditional Love. With the Awareness of this Love, we hold the Power of All Possibility.
Jaguar/IX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine, ruled by the Goddess of midwifery and medicine, and the Spirit in everything. Jaguar guards the temples where Human is in Communion with Holy Spirit. Our walk with the Jaguar is a Journey of experiencing the Spirit we were inspired to see in our Self.
Tone 1 begins a new wave of transformation to be completed by an application of what we learned from IMIX. Tone 1 through Tone 6 present our next steps of Spiritual Growth. Jaguar’s footprints offer a direction and approach through which we can experience the “magic” of our Spiritual Being.
Jaguar demonstrates that our Gratefulness holds the “magic” of our next Transformation. Gratefulness is the natural response of a Spirit that Knows Unconditional Love. Today we are inspired by a Dream that would guide an Intention to Express our Gratitude and Appreciation for the Spiritual Gifts given by the Creator.
The footsteps of the Jaguar lead us into a world of the unseen. Living close to Mother Earth, Jaguar Senses the Love of our first Mother. IX is highly sensitive to sound and vibration and is rarely ever seen because of its awareness of everything in its surroundings.
Jaguar will raise our Consciousness of our own Spiritual energy, and the “magic” held in the Vibration of Gratefulness. We hold the Power to Create a new reality that acknowledges the Good in Every Thing.
Today we are guided to imagine how we would respond in Love to the Creator. Our Intention for the Jaguar/IX trecena will be an Offering of Spirit in an Application of Love. Our most important first step is a Divine Discernment of the Blessings we were given. IX draws awareness to the Gift of Mother Earth and the Truth that she holds the Spirit of Every Blessing. Through her movement we are carried through every experience, and through her we are connected to the Consciousness of Creation.
Today we are inspired by an in-pouring of gratitude that we would express in our new Spiritual Climb. Jaguar is the shape shifter that can carry us to any place and time. IX’s footprints will lead us to the Ancient Altars to make an Offering of our Self.
“Jaguar is the guardian of the portals to other dimensions where our shamanic abilities will open.” IX awakens us to our own multi-dimensional magic, the energy of Spiritual Growth that empowers us as Healers, Leaders, and Way Showers of a path to Spiritual Consciousness.
To all my relations, may we consider the gift we would bring to the Highest Altar as an expression of our Appreciation. May we open our eyes to the gift of the Natural World, the place of our Transformation to Consciousness of the Creator. Filled with beauty in every direction, Mother Earth is an expression of the Creator’s abiding Love. May we listen for the sound of her Beating Heart that can be heard when we draw near. In the Consciousness of Sacred Ceremony may we bring Mother Earth an Offering of Beauty. On the traditional path we are taught that the gift we bring would be in proportion to the blessing we expect to receive. May we Give Everything We Are in an Offering of Love that would be worthy of a Blessing of Earth’s Magic.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Jaguar/IX trecena.
1 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.
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.
