THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX – WALKING IN BALANCE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Peak Tone 6 holds the Intention of Flow. The Unseen Force of Momentum is created from a rhythm and pattern of movement. A body in motion tends to stay in motion. We chose to follow an invisible path, drawing the Truth of our Experience solely from the realm of Spirit.
On the Jaguar’s path, our eyes are trained to the Beauty of a Living Creation and the Consciousness of Life in all things. All pieces and parts of the Creation were given a Divine Design, and all things conform to their own Laws of Nature. The Jaguar sees the Truth in the Light, that Human Beings are Divine by the Sacred Right of Choice. Choice gives Human the ways and means to Love Back. When we choose to live beyond the nature of our physicality, we declare our Love for Dreams ONLY Possible by the Power of Love.
Storm/CAUAC illustrates the Unbridled Ways of a Divine Creator. A Power brighter and hotter than the surface of the Sun, can and will reach through the darkness to claim every Heart that reached to know a Divine Authority of Love.
CAUAC brings a Renewal and Regeneration of the Spirit, like the blessing of Living Water. When Lightning Breaks, the molecules of Air are transformed into a water with Nitrogen, supporting the building blocks for Life. The Element of Water holds the Ether of our Spirit. Residing in the West, CAUAC restores our Faith and Hope in the Unknown future.
It’s Human Nature to turn for home when we see a thunderstorm on the horizon. When we see a threat to home and family, our Hearts are turned to the Truth that matters. Life is ALL that matters when we run for shelter in the storm. Through the Senses of the Jaguar we can See and FEEL the Truth that Human is Moved by the Forces of Nature, Powers beyond our control. We run to a Sanctuary within, wondering how life could be changed by it tomorrow.
From a Sanctuary within we exist in the Center of Love, a “home” grounded as a Truth of Divine Provision. Love is the prevailing Truth of of our Highest Hope. Lightning offers a Divine Charge of electricity that realigns the particles by a positive charge. When we face the danger of the unbridled powers of Nature, all our values change from a worldly assessment to the most Divine Truth. We know that our material possessions are secondary to the Lives and Love we would rush to save. We see the Truth of our Divine Nature in such times. When the Life of the Whole is threatened, we don’t pick and choose who we will save, suddenly EVERY human life matters. Why? What’s different? How were our thoughts instantly changed from one direction to another?
Why don’t we run to save everyone like that whenever life is threatened? Is it our fear of facing the blame? We know the REAL truth that we “went along,” by never standing up for a Truth we Believed. To open our Heart to Love, we have to use the Key of Forgiveness.
Storm/CAUAC reminds us what Life means to us. We can go through the daily routine without a real direction for life – hoping it all works out. We can get lost in the daily flow going along with the way things are, at the same time we are hoping for something entirely different. It’s only wishful thinking without any Wisdom of the Truth. To create Change, we have to move in new ways. We have to disrupt the existing order of our Life and step out of a Human comfort zone of unconsciousness. CAUAC is a dynamic experience that proves to our Heart that there’s a Higher Power Above.
Flint/ETZNAB shared a Truth that “cut to the heart” of a Human matter. We had to SEE Truth we already FEEL, yet never dared to imagine the worldly experience. We unconsciously identify with the Hero we could be. We have to be courageous enough to see the Ones that suffered the greatest injustice, the ones never Seen or Acknowledged. In Truth, those who live at the poverty line are the greatest Unsung Heroes that serve from the bottom to the top.
The Haab date is 2 Sotz’/Zotz/Bat. The Bat is a symbol of dominance and creation under the cover of darkness and night. There is synchronicity with the Jaguar’s path on the Tzolk’in, to create Light walking in stealth. Under the cover of invisibility our Consciousness is Focused by an Intention of Observation. We intend to Dream into Reality what is yet to be seen. This was observed by the Maya as a time when the Bee Keepers prepared themselves through fasting and prayer for a Celebration and the Sharing of the Honey, a festival held in the following month.
Ah Muzen Caab is the Mayan god of Bees and Honey. “The Diving God” or “Descending God” is depicted upside-down at the Temple of the Descending God in Tulum. The bees used by the ancient Maya are stingless bees that build their homes in the canopy. Ah Muzen Caab symbolizes Blessings of Light poured out in Abundance from Above… associated with the Lightning of Storm/CAUAC, and the Descending Light of Illumination.
During the Haab month of Sotz’/Zotz/Bat the Bee Keepers prepared themselves through fasting and prayer for the festival of the Bees when the Blessings would be poured all around. The honey was poured in a circle around every plate. The long-held tradition, possibly from another Time and Place, was associated with the darkest months of the fall.
So are we preparing under the guidance of the Jaguar for a Blessing of Light that will descend from Above. Through the “earth magic” of Gratitude we’ll complete the last step of our climb. A Descending Light will be the Breakthrough, an Illumination from Above that Ignites the Truth in our Heart. CAUAC offers the Truth as a Blessing for the Renewal and Regeneration of our Spirit.
CAUAC is the “midwife who delivers.” CIMI is the midwife/comforter that sits by our side, while CAUAC opens the way for our Birth into the Light. CAUAC fills our Heart with the Truth that we all born to be Given to the Light. The Sacred Right of Choice is how we KNOW we are Divine.
We could see the Truth is upside down. We’ve been turned around to see the Divinity of those who have born the heaviest burden. The are the Human “Grass,” down-trodden beneath the feet. THEY are the most Unsung heroes on the Planet. How long have they carried on, just praying for the Divine Provision just to Live and Be?
To all my relations, may our Heart be opened by an Illumination of Love and a Dream for ALL Human Beings to Know the Promise is True. May we allow our Heart to be changed in Divine Ways through Forgiveness and Unconditional Love. May we give thanks for a Higher Power Above that knows the way and holds the Authority to carry it out in the most Divine Way.
May we claim the Truth of a Divine Momentum manifested by every Heart that reached for Peace and Harmony. May we imagine the Sweetness of the Divine Justice that could ripple through the hearts of the Whole. May we claim what our Heart Knows is True, a Divine Light will break bright enough for everyone to See. May we follow the Jaguar’s footprints to the end, where the Divine Truth of Love can pour out Love like Living Water.
in lak’ech, i am another you

A DIVINE SYNCHRONICITY: A MIRACLE OF LIVING WATER
February 11, 1858, 6 Storm/CAUAC, was the date of St Bernadette’s First Vision of the Immaculate Conception. She had 18 visions that led to the discovery of a spring of Holy Water. The Grotto in Lourdes, France still flows with more than 32,000 gallons a day. Millions have made the pilgrimage for a Miracle of Healing of Living water offered by a Holy Mother of Compassionate Love.

6 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
Galactic Tone 6: Six is responsiveness and the art of negotiation. It is the movement of volume through space that creates time. This energy in action is like the art of dance or a great athlete in motion. Six facilitates dynamic developments in all aspects of life.
Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.
Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Redbird’s symbol is Alcyone of the Pleiades Star in constellation Taurus. Alcyone is the Central Sun of the Universe, heart of heaven. Lightning is the visible evidence of the presence of Redbird Spirit in the Sky, daughter of the Sun Spirit, sign of Fire, Sun’s alter ego on Earth. Redbird is a feminine sign; the hand that rocks the cradle. The symbol of nurturing, the lightning nurtures and energizes, with energy for zest, curiosity, imagination, and ideas. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground.

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.

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.
QUESTIONS TO SELF:
How can I retreat from the world for a climb of Spirit? How can I be invisible for 4 days from Tone 3 through Tone 6… our Human climb to a new Summit of Spiritual Growth? What is my Highest Hope and what am I willing to bring as an Offering and a Living Sacrifice to Give Back for the Sacred Exchange? Where am I now? And, what is the Dream in the Future for everything MY Life could be?
