THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX
The Next 13 Days…
Tone 1 returns us to Unity with the Creator. We were Awakened to a New Life and the Dream of the Harvest of Love that will be multiplied to abundance. Our Faith was raised to Believe in all our possibilities. In our first cycle of “darkness” we are guided to apply the Inspiration to everyday life to complete the Truth of ALL Possibility through the Wisdom of our own Experience. We saw how a Higher Truth of Love could change our thoughts and dreams. We learned a Higher Way to Love for the Whole.
Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit, the shape-shifter that can cross the threshold into the realm Above. The Jaguar guards the Sacred Sites and Temples in stealth, hiding in the shadows as an unseen witness to the Light. The Jaguar will open our eyes to the Light of Love that shines for us whenever “human disappears.” We learned that Love is the Offering to See and Acknowledge someone else. The Jaguar can lead us to the Truth that our Brightest Light Shines when we choose to see someone else, instead of trying to be seen.
The Jaguar holds the Wisdom of Love and Light. IX represents the Divine Feminine that holds the aspects of Divine Discernment and Compassionate Love. The Jaguar holds the “earth magic” of Spirit, born of it’s Love and Gratitude for Mother Earth. The Jaguar lives an independent life close to the Mother, and Sees and Acknowledges her as the Source of Every Blessing of Love. The altar to the Jaguar resides just outside the threshold to the Holy of Holies at the top of the pyramid. An altar within is the Time and Place of Believing. When we count all our blessings, our Heart is prepared to Believe the Truth. Turning to the Beauty of Life, the Jaguar will lead us to Believe in Gratitude as a way that will always lead us to the Light of Love.
When the Jaguar appears, we are guided to make a journey to the East, to the Light of Divine Inspiration. The footprints of the Jaguar will lead the way. Holding faith in the path that leads to the Light, all we have to do is look down at our feet to remember, we’re on the path. Our way is guided by the Unseen Power of Love and every experience is in Divine Order. The Jaguar helps us to See the Unseen. Along the way, when we feel lost in the darkness, all we have to do is look down to remember. We ARE on a path. We can’t see it now, but when we reach the Highest Altar, we’ll look back with 20/20 hindsight and Know that Every Step held a Divine Meaning and purpose.
1 IMIX marked the Dawning of Creation with the Inspiration of Love that will be from the Beginning to the End of our journey. The End was the inspiration for the Beginning. We will Dream for the Future, though the way to get there is to apply the Divine Truth of Love Now with every step we take. NOW is what matters most to Human’s experience of Life. Holding gratitude for what will be, our eyes will be opened to the beauty of every moment.
The Jaguar/IX trecena can lead us to the truth of a Major Life Change. Shining a Light of Love and Gratitude to the Beauty all around, we will Invisibly share the Truth of Love that Seeks to See and Acknowledge another, instead of shining the Light on our Self. Walking in stealth, we will Hear the Heartbeat of Mother Earth. As a silent witness, we’ll See the Unseen Sparks of Love held in the hearts of the Whole. Through the eyes of Spirit we will see “all that is” and “all that is not” a Divine Expression of Love.
TRECENA OF “DARKNESS”
Jaguar/IX leads us through the “darkness” of Human’s walk through the Unknown. IMIX gave us a Dream to hold in our Heart and raised our faith to believe in a Divine Dream of Love. Now we learn the Wisdom of the Human experience, as we apply our Faith to manifest the Truth of Light Below. The Jaguar offers the Vision to see that the world is the “illusion” and the dimension of Spirit is the place where Truth is Real.
THE 1ST & 2ND UINALS
The 1st Uinal holds the Intention of Initiation and Impregnation, guided by Xiuhtecuhtli, the Lord of Fire, Heat, and Time. Xiuhtecuhtli was the lord of volcanoes, the personification of life after death, warmth in cold (fire), light in darkness and food during famine. In the 1st uinal, like the 1st Tone, our Consciousness is held in Unity with the Creator. A Spark of Divinity was placed in the Seed to Hold the Truth of a New Life that is waiting just beyond the darkness. Every Seed must make the journey through the darkness to breakthrough to the Truth of Light above.
Jaguar/IX resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom. Through the Element of Air, Jaguar/IX can shine an Invisible Light on Divine Thoughts of Love. Jaguar guides us to a Live of Beauty, shining invisibly as the witness to Love and Beauty that is all around. The guardian of our journey is 13 Transformer/CIMI. We will be led by the Jaguar to an Ascension that proves the Light that will be. We will claim the a Divine Future through each invisible step that reveals a Higher Light Above.
PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance
- 6 Storm/CAUAC – generates momentum for Spiritual Growth through a Renewal and Regeneration of Spirit.
- 7 Sun/AHAU – establishes a Balance of the Above and the Below, through a Revelation of Light on Earth.
- 8 Crocodile/IMIX – begins a Transformation through the zenith Light of All Possibility.
- 9 Wind/IK – completes the Transformation through the Discernment of a Divine Meaning and Purpose.
Jaguar/IX holds the Divine Feminine of Divine Discernment. The Jaguar believes in Mother Earth as the source of every blessing, and is said to hear the sound of her heartbeat. She awakened us to the Consciousness of our Spirit’s Identity. Jaguar/IX lead a Journey to the Light of our Spirit. Jaguar/IX resides in the North, the direction of all Wisdom. The North holds the Element of Air that relates to all our faculties of Consciousness. Air holds the Power to Disseminate ideas, and the Wind can change the landscape of our thoughts. With the Power to cross the threshold of Spirit, IX can lead a Human journey to a Divine Realm of Being.
We aren’t just a Human Being going through the motions of Life. We were given a Divine Consciousness to Move a Human Being for the Intentions of Love. Jaguar/IX will complete the Truth that was shared by our Mother. The only way to claim her Truth as our own is to see it through the Wisdom of our own experience. We will define our way to be like her, moving in Beauty and Love for a Higher Purpose, willing to be invisible for Love that will only be recognized in Divine Time.
Jaguar/IX leads our first walk of Human Experience, living as a Divine Spirit in the body of a Human Being. The journey we are given will be led by Spirit as an Unseen Path of Love. The Elders said to always use our Gift of Divine Discernment in our Communion with Ascended Spirits. Our Ascension on 13 Reed/BEN taught us the way Home where a Light has already made a Way.
7 Sun/AHAU waits at the top of the pyramid with a Divine Illumination of “all that is” was manifested from Spirit.
To all my relations, may we initiate our Journey on the White Way ahead with a Blessing and a Prayer of Gratitude for the Divine Agency that will guide us. May we remember that at a New Awakening, the Miracle is held in the Hands of Divine Will. May ask for and Give Thanks for a Divine Provision that will sound us from the beginning to the end.
May we begin a journey to the Light expressing the “earth magic” of Gratitude for every step along the way.
in lak’ech, i am another you
Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN
The first two trecena of the Tzolk’in are a time for inner reflection, time to track our own thoughts. In the traditional way, a Vision Quest was a solitary ceremony out alone in nature, 4 days of fasting and prayer. It was a time dedicated to Communion with the Creator and to be Present in the Moment. The Vision Quest was often a time with a personal totem animal might make an appearance. It is a personal experience to hold within for a Time of Discernment. The Elders called it “holding our power” to keep our most Divine Inspiration to our self. We lose the Power of it when we try to explain the explainable. Another tradition was to sit within a circle that defines your Time and Place in Spirit and a realm of Divine Provision. The Elders said that whenever you bring an offering it should be equal to what you expect to receive. Find your own way to carve out a sanctuary, a place that you can identify as a Sacred Place for the Time in Spirit.
At the beginning of every Tzolk’in round we start from the energy of inertia. Tend to the needs of both the body and the mind. You could make a ceremony of your afternoon nap.
THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Jaguar/IX trecena.
1 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
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.
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 or 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.
Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Panther is symbolized by comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, and magicians. Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Panther is the Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardian of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Panthers have unlimited imaginations, visualizations, and are spellbinding speakers. The Totem Jaguar is the 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 for using this power for control or negative purposes; must find a powerful balance.

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.

My gift for a New Tzolk’in Round…
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Crocodile/IMIX trecena.
My gift for this Tzolk’in round is linked there, a Tzolk’in Field Guide that has as much about the basic aspects of each day as I could think to put into it. The directions and the elements are aspects of Universal Laws that can be known in MANY ways, through many kinds of practice. My aim with the dates for each trecena, included for the next few years, was an intention that we could have everything for a day in one place at hand, if we didn’t have a computer.
How have you changed? What do you want to do?
I love to hear from you. It’s interesting to hear how we all experience the energy in different ways. We all have something to share that can help us remember and SEE if it’s happening the same with us too!
