THE TRECENA OF MONKEY/CHUEN
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
The next 13 days…
1 Monkey/CHUEN begins a new Season of Light. We begin the Summer Season of this Tzolk’in round of 260 days. We will multiply Love through the Miracle of Birth.
Human’s Highest Personal Experience of Spirit is taking part in the Creation of a New Consciousness. Divine Intervention is a necessary part of the Magic of Creation. The Creator is the Source of the new Divine Spark. Through the experience of Birth, we will bear witness to an Act of Divine Authority.
Monkey/CHUEN is the Weaver of Time. The glyph illustrates “time rolled up” on Monkey’s head, connecting our Past, Present and Future. Monkey works through our unconscious to draw Inspiration. The face of Monkey is similarly imposed on the glyph of Night/AKBAL, the Day Sign of Spirit that Speaks in our Dreams. Monkey/CHUEN is the Day Sign of a Dreamer, capable of manifesting the Dream. CHUEN can weave a Dream into a thing of Beauty.
7th & 8th UINALS:
We still exist in the 7th uinal that Balances the Above and the Below. The Flint/ETZNAB trecena offered a clearing of karma that Purified our Spirit. Monkey/CHUEN inspires us to Create an Expression of Unconditional Love. The 7th uinal crystallizes our vision of the future. 10 Sun/AHAU will complete the 7th uinal, balancing the Above and Below through a Revelation of Light. We will begin the 8th uinal, Purified in Spirit for Justice accomplished by Divine Intervention.
21 DAYS of CEREMONY: 1 Monkey/CHUEN marks 21 days to the K’iche Maya New Year celebrated on 8 B’atz (8 Monkey/CHUEN). Observing 21 days of personal ceremony is a traditional preparation for those who count the days to be initiated as Mayan Daykeepers on the New Year. 8 B’atz marks the Maya’s Highest Celebration of the Sacred Calendar of Creation.
PEAK DAYS/PEAK ENERGY:
The momentum of movement is created on Tone 6, the cresting of a wave of trans-formative energy. These are the most favorable days for influence and accomplishment. The lower numbered Tones hold less energy, intended as days of inner work. The higher numbered Tones are compared to a wave crashing – a powerful energy already set into its course of motion.
- 6 Wisdom/CIB – Connected to the Ancestors, we learn their Way to Higher Consciousness, through the Intention of Forgiveness.
- 7 Earth/CABAN – We are Balanced by the Forces of Nature and the Movement of Mother Earth.
- 8 Flint/ETZNAB – The Truth of Spirit is exalted for a new Transformation of Justice.
- 9 Storm/CAUAC – We are Transformed by a Regeneration of Consciousness of the Creator’s Spark within and the Truth of our Unbridled Freedom.
CORE DAYS/ZERO POINT: The 7th uinal includes the Core Days of the Tzolk’in as observed by Yucatec tradition. Together, Dog/OC and Monkey/CHUEN reside at the Center. Like a gyroscope, we’re balance with Earth in the Above, Below and All Around. The Fire within, just like Mother Earth, is the cauldron of Creation. Monkey/CHUEN is a Day Sign that Inspires. CHUEN can help us crystallize our Dreams.
Monkey/CHUEN resides in the West, the direction of our Unknown Experience, our Earthly walk. CHUEN can show us how to live in the realm of Miracles. CHUEN is the alchemist and scientist, inspecting everything up close. Monkey Creates for Amusement. Monkey can show us how to integrate our Authority as a way of living. Wearing the Armor of God, we can live as if we couldn’t fail.
We begin again as a Spirit Purified by Love. As a Blue Day Sign of “Light” this is a cycle of incoming inspiration. Mystical experiences are possible on CHUEN. Today is the day when we receive a Divine Inspiration, a direction to a Manifestation of Light.
This is an important day to listen to inner voices, intuition, and gut instincts. As the Weaver of Time, Monkey/CHUEN can connect our past and our future. We can “see how things work” in the process of Creation. This is a trecena of faerie dust, magic wands, and the realm of imagination.
Like Dog/OC, Monkey guides us to explore life with a sense of adventure and fun. As an Artist, CHUEN can inspire our creativity. Art represents that medium through which we are able to directly channel the expressions of our Spirit.
We begin a 21-day Observance to celebrate Time and the Sacred Cycles of Creation. This is a time to reset the altar. Monkey/CHUEN represents the Element of Water that holds the Ether of Spirit. An offering of Water placed on the altar can serve as a reminder to Honor the Sacredness of All Water. We can honor the color Blue as the Color of Spirit. We could begin the journey with a ritual bathing, acknowledge Water as an Immersion of Light. Water can help us to be more sensitive to energy and vibration. Journaling our experiences can help us to inspect the details.
To all my relations, may we observe the next 21 days as a timeout from worrying about our world. Instead, may we observe 21 Days of Gratitude. Gratitude is the Magic of the Jaguar. What we are Grateful for will be Multiplied to Abundance. Miracles are Possible. May we Honor this as a Walk we make under the Guidance of a Creator. May we Imagine the Time of our Life, so Monkey can show us the Way to Create it.
in lak’ech, I am another you

Monkey/CHUEN comes in with a Moonbow Dream:
DOUBLE MOONBOW AND AURORAS, November 15, 2017: (Spaceweather.com)
Seeing a rainbow at night: rare. Seeing a double rainbow at night: ridiculously rare. Seeing a double rainbow at night alongside the aurora borealis: “I couldn’t believe my eyes,” says Giuseppe Petricca who photographed the phenomenon on Nov. 7th from Stornoway, Eilean Siar, Scotland:
“Surely, this is a display that will remain in my memory forever,” says Petricca. “Between fast moving rainclouds a gap formed, which lasted no more than two or three minutes. Beams of light from the full Moon lanced through the gap. The combination of falling raindrops and moonlight formed a lovely rainbow.”
At the same time, a geomagnetic storm was underway. Parting clouds revealed a bright band of green auroras overhead, completing the unlikely scene.
Lunar rainbows are also called “moonbows.” What made this moonbow a double? Moonlight reflecting once inside raindrops made the primary ‘bow. A second reflection produced the double arc.
“I could continue on and on to describe this view, but I think that the picture does it way better,” says says Petricca. “An unforgettable emotion!”

1 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI)
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.
Monkey/CHUEN: Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.
Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoons are full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy; magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart.
