MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
5 Jaguar/IX is an Empowerment of Spirit. Tone 5 lies at the Center of the Cube as the Central source for the Application of Power.
Jaguar/IX is the nahaul of Spiritual Powers that leads journeys of Spiritual Experience. The Jaguar can disappear and reappear in another realm of Being. The Jaguar can shape-shift to whatever it wants to be and travel to any Time and Place.
Jaguar appears as the Sign that a new journey of “Earth Magic” is beginning. Under the Tone 5, a journey will be completed for the Empowerment of an Application. The Jaguar intends to lead us someplace to the Light.
The Jaguar’s footprints led us together to Ek’ Balam. Now “they’re back…” to Complete our Dreams. What path were you following last October? A journey you followed then, led you to “now.” The Seed we planted came from that harvest. NOW is the Spring of this Seed’s Blossoming.
The Jaguar lives independently, seeing Mother Earth as the Source of Every Blessing. The Jaguar’s “Earth Magic” is Gratitude. The Jaguar has heightened Senses, feeling, hearing and seeing everything all around. They Love the Water. As the nahaul of Spirit, their Spirit Knows the Ether there. On the Water Jaguar saw the realm Above. They know they can go there if it’s a Time and a Place in any realm of being.
Crocodile/IMIX is the Primordial Mother of Human. Jaguar/IX is the Eternal Mother of Spirit. One is there to comfort us in her womb. The other sets us free to roam on our own path. On a Jaguar’s path there is a Divine Reflection like the Water. The Jaguar will both lead and follow in stealth behind to guard our Light.
IX is the Symbol of the Divine Feminine, the same “IX” in IMIX. IX speaks as a Symbol of the 9, in Roman numerals a symbol of ALL the Numbers that lead to the Omega/zero. The totem Jaguar is the Divine Mother that knows how to face the darkness. They simply disappear. On a journey of Divine Will, everything is a possibility. We can ask to be invisible to any harm that could come near. Humans RARELY see the Jaguar in the wild. It sees you, smells you, and feels you before you can get close to it.
The Jaguar guards in stealth the Sacred Temples and Altars. A journey that intends to operate as a Divine Trinity, is a Sacred Altar in the Jaguar’s eyes. We are being guarded in stealth. We are being guided in stealth.
Our Jaguar Spirit doesn’t come broken to an altar. The Highest Consciousness of our Divinity comes with silent heavy steps. The Jaguar illustrates a dynamic form of Beauty. She’s the Mother of Inner Strength that beams from the shadows allowing us To Be the Central Commanding Force of Our Own Light. Her Divine Duty was to Believe in us and be Grateful that Her Light will carry on as Ours.
Jaguar lies in the North as the Element of Air. 5 Jaguar engages the Ether of our Spirit. We are Empowered by a Provision of Divine Agency – a Compassionate Mother who Believes what is happening to us and is Grateful to Mother Earth for all we’ve learned. IX had nothing to teach us. Our Spirit Knew it all.
In the Element of Air are the Divine Thoughts of the Creator and the very Breath of Creation we have asked complete. May we listen for the Wind. May we feel the Whirling of Life in the Wind over and around us as, “It SHALL Be.”
The Jaguar is also a symbol of the Number 7. Jaguar climbs to the altar at the top of the pyramid. An equal and opposite Reflection of 7 is Sigma… Σ – the 18th Greek letter that represents the SUM of the WHOLE… also a Reflection of “3.” The symbol came from the Phonetician alphabet, 1050 AD. I don’t know what that means, though I do see the 9 in 18 as well as the 3. We don’t have to Know what symbols mean for our Spirit to be moved by them. The 9th uinal is intended as a concentrated effort of looking high and low to KNOW what our Spirit can see.
The Influence and Guidance of Tone 9 is one of the Most Important Spiritual Tools we can apply to Complete a Transformation of Consciousness. Tone 8 begins a Transformation. Tone 9 completes it. Tone 9 offers a way of Patience to see a bigger picture. We only see our Transformation on Tone 8, as Our Divine Justice. Tone 9 intends for us to know How our Creation will serve the Whole.
The Dog/OC and Monkey/CHUEN are together leading a journey of Time to discover the Beauty of Love, marking it as Divine, and then Expressing it to the Creator by our side. We are Claiming our Divine Territory, Our Time and Place of Earth Destiny. What we can learn from the Dog will be the Gift we carry into the 10th uinal of Manifestation. The 13 Wind/IK Ascension will be a Sacred Breath that carries us into our “wildest dreams,” guided by Night/AKBAL… the Dreamer that BELIEVES the Dream. In an Ascending We’ll Know the Dog was faithful to guide us to Promises written in the Stars.
My silly Human report is that I reached my limit a couple of days ago. My one Human intention to separate myself from ALL worldly concerns was broken as once again, I found myself writing my accounting of the injustices in the world. (At least I didn’t fax it.)
There WAS still Light waiting at the End of my Darkness. BECAUSE I failed, I believed my Divine Intervention began. DIVINE WILL can carry us to the top of the pyramid. We Chose for the Creation to lie in Divine Hands. It was So in a prayer for Divine Will.
Dog/OC will help us to leave the dying things behind in a very Divine Way. The Dog knows which Love to carry along and which love to bury as a treasure. The dying parts do deserve a second chance for a new understanding. When we bury them In Mother Earth, she will recreate them for another Divine Purpose.
Jaguar knows the Magic of Earth. We can offer something to Mother Earth that we didn’t understand, lingering questions about something we had to let go. Jaguar LOVES Mother Earth, and brings to Her what can be made new.
Days marked by the Jaguar are days for bringing an Offering to Mother Earth. The Elders said that when we come to the place to Bless the Spot with water, cornmeal, and tobacco. Priests of different regions spew Tequila or Floral Waters from the mouth onto the ground. The Elders said we can offer our own spittle and a piece of our hair. We hold an offering In our hand – a material symbol, a rock, a crystal, what we Choose. We hold it with us in the Light and Give thanks for an Experience that had a Divine Purpose. Then it’s buried in Earth, and Bless the Mother who will give it a new Life.
Every Divine Thing about 9’s Completion is Letting our Self Go into a current of Divine Love and Joy that our Heart wants to Know. The Creator’s Creation of Divine Compassionate Love would rock us back and forth between arms that hold our Body and our Soul. We’ll Know our Sacred Right to Choose it – at every worldly cost below.
Mother Earth will always hold a Divine Provision to give what has died another life. What we let go was Divinely Intended to Be. The Divine Dog remembers where it’s treasures are buried.
It’s funny how long we hold on to our old beat up human love – thinking we can change others by force. When we forget we count on our Own Light, not Divine Light. Our Ego is burned away by Divine Intervention so we can Rise from the Ashes.
Jaguar’s steps are heavy, leaving a well-marked Path. We are moving into the Season of the Tzolk’in where Dreams are born. The Dream being born across the Circle of Time was the Journey to Ek’ Balam. We chose to go as a pack to share the experience as One. Our Intention was Forgiveness for Humanity. We claimed that we were all standing on the same the Holy Ground of Ek’ Balam. We Asked for Forgiveness for our Self, accepting the Blame for the Whole.
Ek’ Balam, the “Black Jaguar”/”Star Jaguar” ruins is known for the Illumination of Darkness. “Illumination of Darkness” can be interpreted in a Dark and Light way. Ek’ Balam held power to shine a light on the presence of Darkness. An equal an opposite way to see it is a Light that Dispels Darkness. The Divine Justice is the same.
Was there a darkness that lingered over you last fall? Did a Divine Intervention let it go? We can return to see the Seed we created. At the Zenithal Sun we hurried to plant it in Holy Ground when the Earth was the most fertile. The Intentions we planted are coming into full bloom.
A journey didn’t end at Ek’ Balam. Like every other Sign we see, Human is always thinks it means RIGHT NOW. Ek’ Balam was the Time and Place of a Human effort, recording a Human journey below. It was a Beginning for the journey we would carry home in Spirit. The Truth will appear as the Fruit of our Harvest.
To all my relations, may we look across the Medicine Circle to last Fall and retrace our steps. A Truth we held in Faith and brought to Complete at the last harvest, held the seed of OUR Harvest that is Blooming.
May we APPLY Patience to ALL our Spiritual Resources. Human forgets Miracles. Jaguar offers the Journey to go back to them again. ALL Divine Love is Eternal. Miracles of Love are held in Integrity of their own Divinity. They SHALL ALWAYS BE. We only have to disappear from this world and reappear where they were before.
The Elders say, “Breathe and Be Breathed by the Creator.”
May we KNOW that through Forgiveness, we are “good enough,” “pure enough,” and “Divine Enough” to Choose what our Heart Desires.
in lak’ech, I am another you
Debra, Jaguar Woman/9 Eagle/MEN
I’M SO GRATEFUL FOR THE SPRING OF MOTHER EARTH.

5 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther Saho’ni)
Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.
Jaguar/IX: Born with a deep love of the Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength of character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains, and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as in material ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness. Patience born of strength and skill can turn to pounce of quick decision and action. Both bold and stealthful, Jaguars do not often attack directly and communications from them usually contain some mystery. In the absence of integrity, Jaguars power corrupts becoming a search for wealth and fame.
Totem-Jaguar: Guardian of the portals to other dimensions, shamanic abilities will open. Multi-dimensional magic. Healer, leader, way shower energy when used for spiritual growth. Abuse would be using this power for control or negative purposes. Must find a powerful balance.
Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Symbol – comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, magicians. The early-morning Leo constellation Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardians of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Shapeshifters, manipulators of manifestations. Unlimited imaginations, visualizations, spellbinding speakers.

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.
