THE TRECENA OF SUN/AHAU
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 raises us to a new Understanding. Tone 12 connects all the disassociated parts of our experience into the Whole. Tone 12 presents the framework for Comprehension.
As we watch the Sun go down, we naturally contemplate what was created today. We remember the challenges we faced, and what we learned from it. We think about a different way of handling it tomorrow. We remember the Dream we intended to create, what we’ve accomplished, and what still lies in the Ether as the Highest Dream waiting to be born.
The Elders say to “Let your troubles go down with the setting sun.” On Tone 12 we complete our journey with AHAU. On Tone 12 we Know the Blessing of an Ending that offers another chance in a new Beginning.
Monkey/CHUEN is the archetype of a Creator. Within the affinity between the Dog and Monkey we see the first and last Intentions for Being. Dog carries out the purpose of Looking for Love. Monkey is the “master of all art” in search of Beauty. Monkey helps us to see the Beauty of the Love we create.
CHUEN resides in the West, the place of mystery and unknown experiences. CHUEN is capable to weave together the mystical experiences of Spirit by connecting the two sides of our thoughts, our Intellect and our Imagination. What we Comprehend of the experience will create the Dreams will become the Dreams for a new Day. The West holds the Element of Water, touching our Emotions and our Spirit.
PORTAL DAY: ELEMENT OF ETHER
12 Monkey/CHUEN (KIN 51) is a Portal Day that amplifies our experience through a thinning of the veil. These are days when we are most capable to experience our Supernatural Gifts. Mystical experiences are always possible on Monkey/CHUEN.
CHUEN is an Observer of Time, the “Time Weaver” that arranges the threads of our experience into the tapestry of our Life. CHUEN offers a healing to our emotions through a perspective of curiosity. The Cherokee Racoon is the friendly trickster that will do anything for a smile. Both the Monkey and Racoon see the brighter side of life, and the humor in all our “silly human tricks.” Their primary guidance is to not take everything so seriously and find the humor in it all.
The Monkey holds the Consciousness of All Time. The glyph illustrates “time rolled up” on the head of the Monkey. Monkey represents the “time traveler” in human, our ability to go back to any place and time to experience it again. This capability of Human Consciousness sets us apart from every other living thing. In our own struggle to discern the Truth of our Spiritual Gifts, Sun/AHAU illuminates the Truth in plain sight.
All our Gifts are like that, right there in front of our face. When we finally open our eyes to the Truth, their mystical powers will be multiplied to abundance. Monkey knows the motherlode of our Consciousness and all its magical possibilities. Connecting the threads of thought between the Above and the Below, we see we have the makings of a Masterpiece.
The archetype of the Monkey shares a Perspective of Consciousness that connects our Dreams as a real-life experience. Monkey knows all the games human can play to trick our Self into Believing. Our minds are opened by curiosity and a sense of humor. We’ll see Truth from this perspective that we won’t see when our emotions rule our response to living.
The Sun/AHAU trecena guided an application of a Divine Intention to live for a Higher Purpose. Guided by the Master, we have been learning what it looks like and the reality of the experience. Sun/AHAU shines a Light on all the Ways and Means we were given to Create the Beauty of Love. Knowing exactly what we need to know and when we need to know it, AHAU’s path presents 12 Monkey/CHUEN to guide our thoughts to comprehend what we’ve created with all the hours of the day.
Monkey engages the ethereal powers of our Consciousness. Gathering Time is evidence of the Divinity of our Consciousness. Monkey holds an advantage over time. Monkey holds the split second between an experience and response from human’s heart. This is the Divine Moment we were given to Choose.
We can see this extended moment in human children when they fall down. It’s the moment they discern “good” or “bad.” In that moment they have two choices. They can choose to celebrate the courage of taking the step, or cry over the failure of falling down. Children instinctively see the Choice and look to Mom or Dad for the discernment. They choose whether they should cry.
There’s a silly human trick… choosing to cry when the “damage” wasn’t enough in itself to “make” us cry. Very curious. I’m sure a Monkey would scratch its head and wonder why anyone would choose that experience, when there’s so much other cool stuff to think about.
Monkey enjoys life by exploring possibilities. Though CHUEN is the “Master of all Art” it hardly finishes anything. When it sees something more beautiful, it moves on to the next thing. CHUEN can help us see the Beauty in what we’ve created today and move on to a more beautiful tomorrow, one we could start from scratch, just to see what end we could create from another new beginning.
Monkey is a nahaul that employs tools. It sees ways to use an experience. To Monkey, what it imagines is a good as the real thing. Monkey explores the Beauty of its Imagination. The Creator knows this as the place of Creation and Unlimited Possibilities of Experience. CHUEN can see the Success of Failure. When we turn to look for Monkey’s response, it’s “jumping for joy” that we fell down, celebrating the “daring attempt” we made at something new. Monkey reminds us how silly is to cry over the effort that promises us a total freedom of movement. (Raccoon would offer a little water and wash it up like new, so we can see how perfect it was for this moment.)
Greater than all the Love we Create is the Intention to Create it. Learning to create anything, there will be a few flops. Monkey can help us laugh at the flops that were Intended as Love. CHUEN sees the folly in trying to Love by a human discernment of Love.
The Elders say, “There are many ways to accomplish the same thing.” Every human holds their very own discernment of Love. We might “think” we know what it is that will make someone else happy, yet how could we Know the depths of another human heart and all the experiences that cause it to break.
One of my own silly tricks it took a while to discover was about Seeing and Acknowledging our different perceptions of Love. When someone shared bad news, I thought the best encouragement I could give was how this same difficulty was an experience I could relate to my own, or someone else, then offer the encouragement of how they surmounted the challenge. I thought this was a loving thing, until I discovered this is NOT what someone suffering wants to hear.
Human is vulnerable when we share our failures and fears. It may take a great deal of courage to share them with another human being. We share when we “need” another human to See and Acknowledge what we are going through. This is NOT the time to project any other human into the experience, or our Self.
Look at it this way. We’ve just run home to Mother with an injury. She takes a quick look and says, “Billy had a wound even bigger a couple of weeks ago, and now it’s all healed up.” When we’re hurting we could care less about Billy. We’re looking for someone to see our Here and Now. For me, this Understanding was monumental toward the effort to “think before I speak” and LISTEN. (Raccoon would help us see the humor it trying so hard to think of the right thing to say, when the best thing is to not say NOTHING, and LISTEN.) That’s how a Dog would handle it. A Dog would sit with us and just listen with a Compassionate Heart. Dog would share our sorrow, not celebrate someone else’s success.
This was a monumental new understanding for me. Something I was convinced was an Act of Love, was a total flop. I’d been flopping for a long time and had no idea of the failure. These ah-ha moments are a little embarrassing when you time travel back to see all the flops.
From the Monkey’s mind of curiousity, we can learn a lot from so many failed attempts, and the humor in discernment so contrary to the Love wished for on the other end. We can also realize the odds that we’ve taken offense to Love.
Monkey reminds us to go back in search of human’s failed attempts at Love so we can find the Intention. There are many ways human tries and many ways it could be seen. After all, a Mother yelling for her kids to get out of the street is an Expression of Love.
Monkey/CHUEN will complete the Wisdom of our Experience with a good Reason to send our Love through a way-station of Light. The Maya recognized the Sun and the Reason to Give and Receive our Love through a way-station of Light. The Maya recognized the Sun as a way-station, that transmits the Light of the Universe – the One Song we would always recognize as Love.
There is One who can transform every human experience. With the Sun as our companion we will have the Light to see the Love that was intended. In the long run, our mistakes won’t matter. It only takes One Divine Act of Love for that to be the experience we remember.
To all my relations, may we remember that all humans are creators of love. Some of our ways are silly. Instead of taking offense, may we assume the Divine Intention. Chances are good that we’re all trying to create love with each other. It’s the Mission we were designed for. May we dream of all the new ways we could see Love tomorrow. May we pray for those whose gave love we didn’t see and ask the Creator to make the Sacred Exchange. May we leave it in the Creator’s hands, knowing we’ll see it too in Divine Time. May God seat a new comprehension of human love, so we learn to See and Acknowledge the Beauty in the Divine Moment it’s created.

THE TRECENA OF SUN/AHAU
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for a trecena energy forecast and insight on the 3rd Uinal and Portal Days of the Sun/AHAU trecena.
12 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI)
Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, 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.
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.
