MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN
The next 13 days…
The Seed/KAN trecena offered the Wisdom of our Self that only comes from experience. Our Consciousness was raised with the Courage to see who we were created to be, and that we are Forgiven for shortcomings that are all part of the process of Becoming.
We begin a new journey of Incoming Light under the Day Sign Earth/CABAN. We are led to discover our relationship with Mother Earth.
Earth/CABAN is the Sign of Mother Earth, Movement and our Correspondence with Planetary and Universal Cycles. CABAN can also teach us about our Self, as we are made of Earth and hold the same Forces of Nature.
The Aztec sign, the Ollin, is placed at the center of their calendar as an apex of movement, that points to 20 important positions of movement. Ollin simply represents “Movement,” the first sign of Life. The Cherokee Heron is also a sign of movement, as a creature that lives its life as a perpetual migration. The Heron is also related to the Phoenix, born again, from the ashes of its past. The K’iche interpretation of No’j (CABAN) is Knowledge. The 3 circles on the No’j glyph represent 3 areas of Wisdom of 3 dimensional realms, the physical, mental and spiritual planes.
Our Movement through Time with Mother Earth is the Source of all our Human Knowledge. Everything we need to know can be learned from her and through her movement. CABAN can lead us on a Path of Discovery of the Forces of Nature we share. Earth/CABAN calls us to “Come Be Here Now.”
PORTAL DAYS: The Earth/CABAN trecena includes 2 Portal Days that will thin the veil to other dimensions. We’re offered an opportunity to re-experience our own Magic. The Powerful Energy of Serpent/CHICCHAN will be magnified on Tone 9. This is a Position of Peak Energy for “Lightning in the Blood.” A second Portal Opens on Tone 12 of Understanding. A portal will magnify the energy of Star/LAMAT to multiply our Wisdom to Abundance.
4 SUN/AHAU: 4 Sun/AHAU, December 15th, is a very significant Kin on the Tzolk’in calendar, central to Mayan prophecies of Transformation. (December 21, 2012 prophecies were based on its Kin, 4 Sun/AHAU.) Burner Days release a build-up of residual energies to restore the Balance of our Relationships. Personal ceremonies are often observed by the Maya during days leading up to Burner Days. On 4 Sun/AHAU our Harmony will be Restored through a Completion of the 8th uinal of Divine Justice. [Also, a Global Burner Day. See 13-Day Trecena Guide.]
9TH UINAL: On Tone 5 of Empowerment under the Day Sign of IMIX we will enter the 9th Uinal of the Tzolk’in. IMIX will ignite our Imagination for a Higher Transformation. This is a uinal that calls us to a Higher Perspective. Number 9 represents the completion of an Understanding, and is a 20-day cycle aided by Divine Intervention. The 9th uinal represents the budding of the flowers that will create the seed of a new generation of Spirit.
PEAK DAYS/PEAK EXPERIENCES:
- 6 Wind/IK – Spiritual Growth will be inspired by the Breath of Spirit
- 7 Night/AKBAL – Balance will be restored by an Inner Voice of Spirit
- 8 Seed/KAN – The Holy Day of the trecena will fulfill the Intention of our Dynamic Nature
- 9 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Portal Day) – Our Spiritual Gifts of Knowing will be re-ignited (magnified by a Portal)
How beautiful is Mother Earth? How could we live here without her capturing our attention? This was the Home created for Human by a Divine Consciousness. Human was placed here by Intention. Mother Earth was a Gift to Human that could show us how to live in Harmony and Equity.
The Earth/CABAN trecena will inspire us to live in correspondence with Mother Earth. Her movement and Forces of Nature can teach us something about our Self. By synchronizing with her movement, we can live in Oneness with the Whole of Creation.
As we approach the Winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, we can remember that even in a season that is dark, cold and still, there is much going on under the surface. We are preparing for the Return of the Light. This is the Season of Miracles.
Mother Earth reflects her beauty in every Season. She Believes in us like a Mother, encouraging that we could Master anything we set our minds to. As a Mother, it’s her duty to show us the way. She knows when our feet touch the ground and senses the beating of our heart. We are One with a Living World.
Tone 1 is a day of inspiration. A Divine Inspiration we receive today will Fire the Passion of a New Dream of Creation.
1 Earth/CABAN calls us to Reside in Oneness with the Natural World. Earth/CABAN can dispel our negative emotions and set the course of our Migration. The Maya see each day as a Sacred Event. Through every rotation we are offered a journey of Light and Dark – the Light of New Inspiration, and the Darkness of the Unknown.
CABAN facilitates the sending of long-distance communications and guides the course of migration for whales, elephants, birds, and many other creatures. CABAN can awaken our Instincts, Intuition, and Telepathy that serve as our Inner Guidance System. CABAN can awaken our sense of direction, an Inner Knowing the next Wise thing to do. CABAN is the Mother’s hand that gives us a push to take action.
To all my relations, may we make a new commitment to Movement. May we engage the “active principle” to make the most of each day. May we prepare to see how our lives are ordered for a purpose… that the circumstances of today are presented as the “most important thing” of “right now.” May we draw our consciousness to Mother Earth, who guides our walk in the world through a rhythm and pattern of movement. May we be the child that climbs in her lap to be amazed by the stories she can share… the child who watches her closely and imitates her movement.
in lak’ech, I am another you
Debra, Jaguar Woman/9 Eagle/MEN
A NEW COMMITMENT TO GRATITUDE:
I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year. This 21 days started on 11 Jaguar/IX and ends in synchronicity, on 12 Jaguar/IX – 12’s Tone of Understanding, the Magic of Gratitude (Jaguar/IX).
We are approaching the Global Burner Day, 4 Sun/AHAU, on December 15th. 4 Sun/AHAU a very significant date on the Tzolk’in calendar, central to Mayan prophecies of Transformation. (December 21, 2012 prophecies were based on its Mayan date, 4 Sun/AHAU.) Burner Days release a build-up of residual energies to restore the Balance of our Relationships. Personal ceremonies are often observed by the Maya during days leading up to Burner Days.
21-Days of Gratitude: Day 4
I’m grateful that there is always something new to learn, and for the knowledge we can draw from Mother Earth. I’m grateful for mysteries that engage our curiosity, and the consciousness to figure them out.
THE TRECENA OF EARTH/CABAN
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Earth/CABAN trecena.
1 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
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.
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 and perpetual motion, 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 Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past.

By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
