MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 12 is the day of Understanding. Offering/MULUC offered us the clarity to See the Gifts of Life that would manifest our own Reason To Be. We Acknowledge a Debt to the Creator that we are Willing to repay as our Offering of Sacred Exchange. We were given the Keys to the Kingdom. Today our Heart Believes our own Truth, that we are standing at the threshold of our Divine Destiny.
Dog/OC uses Unconditional Love to move Knowledge from the Head to the Heart. We’ll see more than our own possibilities. Dog is the symbol of the Creator’s Unconditional Love. As as nahaul that lives in the pack, Dog sees the Happiness and Well-being of the Whole as important as its own. On 12 Dog/OC, the Dog will bring the Wisdom of Love to guide our Way.
On Tone 12 we take something to heart. Tone 12 holds the Ah-ha moment of Truth that we Remember. Truth becomes more than just a theory, we see clearly how it will make a difference in our life. We’ll recognize the simplicity of a small Truth and the Power it holds to change our whole outlook on Life.
The trecena of Transformer/CIMI prepared us for a Major Life Change, with a Gift of Seeing a Blessing in our Future. Each Ascension is built on the last. Storm/CAUAC offered a Revival of Spirit. Through a Lightning Charge, we Saw the Light that Who We Are, is exactly what we were Meant to Be. CAUAC reversed the poles of magnetic attraction. We are no longer bound by the gravity of the world. We’re Free to Rise as we are Drawn by the Unseen Hand of Divinity.
Dog/OC resides in the North, the Direction of Wisdom. Dog’s Wisdom of Love is reflected as Innocence. The Dog Loves all the Opportunities of Life enough to relish every single detail. The Dog sees things through the Eyes of Love, on the lookout for Love with the Reason to Share. I remember when my children were babies. A hard part of being a single parent is that you don’t have any one else around who can fully marvel at their latest story. That feels like Dog’s Intention of sharing Love. Some of the things that Dog brings home, can ONLY be appreciated by another Dog.
The Cherokee Day Sign is the Wolf. Wolves are known to be keen at following a scent. When a Wolf brings something back to the pack, another Wolf often picks up the scent and follows it all the way back to the place it was found. For all the Love we Look for and Find, we leave a trail of Light for someone else to follow. Every Human Dream holds the same Intention for Happiness.
On a day marked by Wisdom, we can Give Thanks for all the Wisdom made possible by Love. The North holds the Element of Air, related to the faculties of Consciousness. The Dog follows Unseen Trails divined through all its Senses. Dog reminds us that the Gift of our 5 Human senses are just as Divine as our Supernatural senses. Music can engage our Spirit. Tastes and smells can carry our thoughts back to another Time and Place.
Human was Sacred to Creator for making the journey that wasn’t conceived from a personal choice. A Creator offered Human Gifts that would support the Whole of our Happiness on Earth. The Element of Air holds the thoughts of the Creator and the first Breath of Life. Through an Understanding of Divine Love, the Dog can change our mind. We would only look for Happy Trails in the future. We’d Live to Create so we could Bring Home and share all the Love we found.
Dog guides us to be faithful and loyal to one another. A Dog identifies with its family and will defend and protect its own. The Dog is said to be faithful beyond death, leading us back to the stars across the Milky Way – “the place where the Dogs ran.”
Dog would listen to the childhood stories. Dog is always longing to hear another story about a dream of Love. The Elders remind us that friendship is a blessing to our path. We may follow the same trails, but each one of us can discover something different. Sometimes things are easier to see through the experiences of someone else. There’s been many times when someone shares a story, that I realize the same thing was going on with me – they helped me see something too close for me to see in myself. Dog operates through a Spirit of Cooperation and Community, not driven to compete, but driven to revel in EVERY discovery of Love, no matter who drags it home.
To all my relations, may we revel in the Joy that we were given a “dog’s life.” We were given the Power and Freedom to blaze many trails until we find the one with the buried treasure. The treasure we thought was lost, is going to be found. May our Spirits Leap for for the new Opportunity to Love that lies ahead. May we see the success that lies beyond our last climb and know the Treasure is there. We can smell it from here, and there’s a well-worn path from all the other members of the pack who have already been there. Chances are we’ll run into our buddies along the way.
May we Gift Thanks for all the Beauty and Happiness in our Life – just as it was always meant to be. May we Give thanks that we asked for a Way, and a Way of Love was given. May we be Grateful that when we Ask to Know, we are always Blessed with Understanding in a way that we can Always Remember… the Truth was Seen by our Heart.
in lak’ech, i am another you

TRECENA OF STORM/CAUAC – REVIVAL OF SPIRIT
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for a daily energy forecast with insight on the Uinal and Portal Days of the Storm/CAUAC trecena.
12 Dog/OC (Cherokee, Wolf/KANA’TI)
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.
Dog/OC: Courageous, loyal and warm-hearted, very alert and valiant, people born of Dog are respected for their sense of justice and their protection. People born of the sun sign Dog are very sensual and know how to enjoy life. Playfulness and a good understanding of the basic human nature lead to prosperity for Dog. Dogs are good team players who love to travel and have a keen sense of their position in society. Dogs are ambitious and will take opportunities when they offer themselves, including infidelities. Dog persons share the nature of coyotes, spies, wolves and lawyers.
Cherokee, Wolf/KANA’TI: Wolf is symbolized by Sirius (Dog star) and Antares, one or the other always visible but never at the same time. Wolf is our brother, shares our very roots. All dogs are domesticated wolves, companionship and guidance. Wolves are a connecting link between the worlds; ones who inspire loyalty, diplomacy and sense of humor with unlimited potential. Wolf is the Day Sign of teachers, healers, pathfinders and transformers; sharp as obsidian, gentle as a lamb.
