MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
THE TRECENA OF DOG/OC
The Next 13 Days…
The Dog/OC trecena leads a Material Creation of Unconditional Love. We Ascended the trecena of Earth/CABAN Knowing our Divine Purpose to Be an Offering of Love to the world below. We were inspired to Believe in the realness of the Love exchanged between our Self and Mother Earth. Earth/CABAN returns on Tone 8 to be exalted by Unconditional Love.
The Dog/OC trecena is a cycle of application, a “dark” cycle. Human comprehension is a binary process. First we are given a Truth as inspiration or an idea, a theory. Our Wisdom is completed by our own Experience of Truth.
The Red and Blue Day Signs are “Light” (incoming inspiration). The White and Yellow Day Signs are “Dark,” meaning application. Like Venus who rises as both the Morning Star and Evening Star, in the morning the Sun is the Principle Source of Light. As the Evening Star, Venus Experiences its Own Light.
The Archetype of Dog/OC personifies the Experience of Love the Creator Intended for Human. We only have to imagine a Happy Dog to identify our Role Model. The Dog takes in the Earth through ALL of its Senses. It loves the Wind in its face, the water and mud, and all the sights, sounds, and smells. The Dog receives us at the door with Unconditional Love.
The Elders say that once the Dog/Wolf becomes your totem, you are always recognized as one of the pack. Dog is Faithful and Loyal, even beyond death, they lead us back to the stars. The Milky Way is known as “the place where the dog ran.” The Dog/OC trecena will lead us on a well beaten path of Unconditional Love to Manifest our Own Light in the Darkness.
PORTAL DAYS: The Dog/OC trecena includes 2 Portal Days that allow us to see beyond the veil of Spirit. These are days we are most likely to experience our supernatural Gifts of Spirit. On 4 Reed/BEN a portal will magnify a Divine Channel of Communion as our Stability. On 7 Wisdom/CIB, at the top of the pyramid, we’ll be Balanced in the Highest Wisdom of Love we can Know. CIB offers the Keys to the Kingdom through the Experience of Forgiveness.
9TH & 10th UINAL: 11 Sun/AHAU completes the 9th uinal that frames our experience within the context of Realizing a Higher Purpose. 9’s are all about completing an experience of Understanding. Tone 11 is a Revelation that reveals a clear way forward. The 10th uinal holds the intention of manifestation. In the Tzolk’in’s wave of 13 uinals, this cycle is guided by Divine Intervention. The 10th uinal is the Blossoming of Spirit that precedes the Harvest.
PEAK DAYS/PEAK EXPERIENCES:
- 6 Eagle/MEN – will establish a rhythm and pattern of focusing on our Dream.
- 7 Wisdom/CIB – Love will be Balanced between the Above and Below through Forgiveness.
- 8 Earth/CABAN – Mother Earth is exalted by the Divine Justice of Our Love on Earth.
- 9 Flint/ETZNAB – a Divine Transformation will be completed by an unexpected Truth.
Remembering the Heroes of 9/11
Today we can Honor and Remember those who’s lives are a demonstration of Unconditional Love. May we Acknowledge, See, and Honor the Saviors who ran in the direction of Harms Way in an effort to save others. May we remember the personal costs to their own well-being in doing so. May we Acknowledge and See through their example, the Truth of the Divine Nature of the Human Spirit.
Dog/OC is a pack animal. It’s natural way is to stand in defense of the Whole. Dog is also a creature of opportunity, drawing upon all the joys of living on Mother Earth. Dog engages all its senses in the experience. The Dog is always looking to create the next exchange of Unconditional Love. Where it doesn’t find the exchange, it simply moves on to the next opportunity. By not holding a grudge, it leaves its love behind, so the door is still open when it returns to try again.
Dog also offers Compassionate Love. A dog knows when we are suffering and will share the Love to see us through. Love is the reason that Dog is “man’s best friend.” As we make a Dog/OC climb of Spiritual Growth, we can find our direction by following the path of the Dog.
On Galactic Tone 1 we begin a new Initiation of Love. We begin in Unity with the Creator. It’s a day to “be here now” to receive the Inspiration of a Divine Creator. Through the Consciousness of our own thoughts, we’ll receive a Divine Idea, a Spark that will ignite our own Intention to Love. The Beauty we will create will be our own expression of the Love that we receive.
Earth/CABAN taught us to See and Acknowledge all the beauty around us. Today the Creator will inspire a new Mission to create beauty by seeing the many different ways we see Love and Light reflected through humanity.
One of my favorite lessons on Friendship and Unconditional Love was shared by a dear friend Theresa, who I lost in 2010. She said, “A true friend is the one who stands in line with you at the grocery store, and if you have a heated exchange with the cashier, they will be behind you, concealing a smile.” Her point was that a friend would find the humor in the breakdown, because they know you are better. They don’t define you by your worst moments, but by the best they see in you. This seems like the very definition of Unconditional Love, a Dog’s Love that is Faithful beyond death, Love that always stands in your corner.
Theresa was a friend that I only recognized later as one of my greatest teachers. She was outrageous, an activist who showed up at city council meetings in an orange hat, orange coat, and orange cowboy boots, wearing a gas mask, and carrying a stack of research a foot high in her personal crusade to save the living things in Puget Sound.
She’s a hero to me. She embraced her outrageous self. She listened to all my sad stories, I can never remember her suggesting, “You should…” After all my tears were shed, she always found a way to end things with a giggle. She was known for that Intention. I remember one of our earliest meetings, she was supporting a “No Spray” campaign for the Green Party at the Island County Fair. I stood back and watched as she explained to a man who stopped by her booth, “Did you know that pesticides cause erectile dysfunction and testicular atrophy?” I still remember the look on the guys face. LOL At the end of her memorial service, one friend started a giggle that spread across the room into one beautiful last laugh for Theresa.
As we begin a new climb, may we be inspired to take in ALL the beauty of Life as a shared experience for each other. As we face our fears and challenges, may we find the giggle in our Self – the part of our Self that can still See and Acknowledge that our days are filled with far more Beauty by Mother Earth than darkness. Our darkness only has to last as long as it takes to turn to the Creator for another helping of Unconditional Love.
May we pay attention to the Dogs around us, and Honor One on behalf of the Whole. May we See and Acknowledge all the Love they share, not by an Intention to be a hero, but as a by-product of Loving their Lives on Mother Earth.
To all my relations, may we Honor the unsung heroes of every day, those whose Love doesn’t make it into the headline news. May we raise our Consciousness to just how prolific they are. May we find our meaning in life by looking out for the next opportunity to share Love and Acknowledge the Love in others. When we give it, may we seek the application of Love that is most needed, especially when it means sharing someone’s sorrow. May we recognize the difficulty it is to share our darkness, and Honor the Love in the one who sees us worthy enough to share their authentic feelings. May we see the Light that exists beyond our Human failings, and be ready to forgive, proving we are all inherently worth more than our shortcomings. May we Love the Life we were given and Offer our Self to a Sacred Exchange. May we manifest the Blossoming of our own Unconditional Love. May we guard the Truth of Love in every Human and stand watch for every opportunity to Love.

THE JAGUAR’S MAGIC OF GRATITUDE
I’m grateful that we have each other to experience and share the Beauty of life on Mother Earth.
THE TRECENA OF DOG/OC
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the DOG/OC trecena.
1 Dog/OC (Cherokee, Wolf/ KANA’TI)
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.
Dog/OC: Loyalty and faithfulness that survives beyond death. This was the first day of creation energy in this 4th world, setting the energy for love, loyalty and faithfulness on the 5200 year cycle. Heart chakra energy is involved so that we can move to the state of “unconditional love” with compassion. All sexual desire issues that are not in harmony will surface to be cleared.
Cherokee, Wolf/Kana’ti – O’Oj: Dog/OC is a symbol of Sirius (Dog star) and Antares; one or the other is always visible but never at the same time. Wolf is our brother, shares our very roots. All dogs are domesticated wolves, companionship and guidance; connecting a link between the worlds; wolf is the day sign associated with teachers, pathfinders and transformers.

How is your Spiritual path today?
I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!
UPDATE ON A LIFE DREAM:
On 4 Sun/AHAU I was able to make the reservations for the trip, arriving on October 28 as I had hoped to be there to celebrate Ian Lungold’s Mayan birthday, 12 Sun/AHAU, on October 31st along with the observance of the Day of the Dead. It felt important to the information I would share in my book. I’m grateful to be part of such a flow of Love, more necessary that money, for the realization of my dream. You are already the blessing of just being here. (But you could help me spread the word.) much love, in lak’ech, Debra https://www.gofundme.com/life-dream-a-pilgrimage-of-spirit
