THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX – WALKING IN BALANCE
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Peak Tone 8 is the number of “pure spirit.” A Divine Agency intervenes to complete our Transformation. We are drawn by an Unseen Force toward Higher Ground. Tone 8 holds the Intention of Divine Justice, the Harmony and Equity of the Whole. Number 8 is a symbol of Abundance and Life to Infinity.
Every Transformation is built on the Higher Ground of the last trecena. Crocodile/IMIX is the Primordial Mother that witnessed the Dawn of our Awakening. IMIX led the 1st trecena of “Light” offering the Divine Inspiration to reach beyond the limitations of our Human Nature, to claim a Higher Truth. It was her duty to teach us to live by our Divine Nature, applying the Divine Feminine aspects of Discernment and Compassionate Love.
8 Crocodile/IMIX offers a New Light of Truth. We were created for a Divine Communion. Our Heart will know it’s True. The Creator knows a Way to fulfill the Dream in our Heart. IMIX shares the Communion of Divine Inspiration, through “wild ideas” and new imaginings. We are always guided by IMIX to pray for a Sound Mind and Good Judgement. On 8 IMIX we can see how Human Beings are inclined toward impulsive action, when our Hearts are ignited by our deepest Heart’s Desire. Today we can the many ways that Human Beings express their passion. Our first impulse is to strike out. It FEELS like Love, though it may not LOOK like Love. Love that can be seen by all is marked by the Expression of Discernment and Compassionate Love. Love takes its Time to See the Whole Truth. Through Compassionate Love, we can see beyond the Expression to a Cause and Effect.
THE 2ND UINAL
The 2nd uinal holds the Intention of Duality. Just like Tone 2, on a Higher Scale of Intention over the next 20 days, we will be considering one way or another. We’ll see from Human’s perspective of “light” and “dark.” The 1st uinal represented the impregnation and germination of a New Seed of our Self. We were awakened to new and Higher Possibilities. We will make a Divine Discernment and a Choice “to be or not to be.” We will consider a new Dream to Be. And, we will learn to apply our Passion for a Divine Meaning and Purpose.
IMIX resides in the East and always brings a Light of New Possibilities. IMIX is known as the Mother of Innovation. She shares wild ideas in random order, out of the blue. She inspired us to Live by the Truth of our Spirit and apply our Divine Discernment of Wisdom to the Choices we make. She helped us to Discern the Most Divine thoughts we can follow. We will Know the Truth when we take the Whole into consideration. We will discern the Dream that expresses Love will always be marked as a thing of Beauty. A Mother of Divine Discernment encourages us to use our Common Sense. She reminds us to be Patient and to Remember the Divine Justice of Love.
We will be inclined to see the differences between one thing and another. Over the next 20 days, we could expect to be more conscious of the polarity between “one side” and “the other.” Duality will reflect Truth held by one that is equal and opposite to the other. We will ask how 2 can be drawn back into unity as 1. On Tone 2 we FEEL separated from the whole by all our differences. Seeing so many differences, our Heart will long to find a way.
The Jaguar shared the Highest Way. Will we remember? The One Truth we can stand on together is the worldly illusion of “impossible.” IMIX reminds us that “impossible” is a “possibility” that we haven’t given enough Time to figure out. We forgot. To know the Truth of the Highest Discernment, we only need to remember to employ ALL our faculties of Discernment – 1) to “see what is” by a Human discernment of reason, 2) to imagine the possibility, and 3) to imagine what is Divinely Possibility, when the Meaning and Purpose of a Creation is for the Highest Good of the Whole.
IMIX holds the Element of Fire to ignite our Passion for Love. Our hearts will feel the call to find a way to express our Truth of Love. Among the wild ideas that will be shared by IMIX is a Dream that will speak to our Heart. It’s said that when we follow the IMIX “wild idea” we Love the most, the end will be Divine Genius. Today we can Feel the Truth that our Dreams for the Whole hold the Highest Possibilities for our own Happiness. IMIX helps us see the Truth of the Way to be reunited with the Whole.
8 Crocodile/IMIX helps us to see that the way to manifest Harmony and Equity is to Believe in Time, and the Divine Meaning and Purpose of every experience. The manifestation of our Highest Dream won’t be an “overnight success.” It takes Time to see the Truth. Love that goes back and forth is hard to believe. The best way to Hold our Ground of Love IS an effort of Invisibility. When we are devoted to witness the Light, Love will be the discernment when our Intention is to See and Acknowledge the Truth that lies in another Human heart. It won’t matter “what’s true” by our own reason. We know Love when someone cares how we FEEL.
To all my relations, may we look beyond the Human facts and reasons that won’t make sense when we are ruled by our emotions. May we use the Wisdom of Discernment to understand how others feel, apart from Our facts of the matter. May we remember that Truth Feels Different in every Time and Place. May we accept that all our experiences have been different. Something that seems trivial to one can feel like a very big deal to someone else. Will we forgive, when we can’t understand? Will we think twice?
May we remember that our Truth will be different too. There WILL be other Human Beings who can’t see what we see. They haven’t seen what we’ve seen, felt, known, or believed about the story of our Life. We can start out from Higher Ground realizing the Truth that we WILL BE misunderstood. And WE WILL misunderstand. May we reach for Higher Discernment to Remember how that feels. We may have different perspectives about our experiences of Life, though we can FEEL the Truth – how much WE want to be understood and accepted for the Choices we made for our Self.
We could try to explain it as a means of getting someone else to understand us. Though, it doesn’t take much experience to know we can’t convince anyone to “understand.” It takes 2 to create a Divine Relationship. Someone has to start with the Sacred Exchange. Listening is the way to express the Intention to Understand. We don’t have to agree to understand. We have to Forgive to Understand, and Remember that the Intention behind everything we do is to claim a Light that shines for us.
May we give thanks for the Truth of the Light that we CAN see. May we be grateful for a Light that WILL break through that speaks to our Heart. May we track our thoughts to Remember we are NOT alone and we are NOT separated from the Divine One. May we listen for the wild ideas of IMIX and take notes. May we share the dark and light of our experiences with the One who understand our Whole Story – the one that can SEE the experience that moved us to our choice. May we give thanks for the Sacred Right to Choose what our Heart needs, and ask a Divine Creator for the Highest way to carry it out.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Jaguar/IX trecena.
8 Crocodile/IMIX (Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below.” From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “Neat Freaks”.
Crocodile/IMIX: Crocodile receives messages of primal creative force; simply the beginning of all things. Crocodiles who follow their hearts are seen as genius. There is no order to the primal messages, so Crocodile persons should direct their energies toward practical and cooperative efforts to bring productive results. Crocodiles have a strong nurturing energy and will work hard to provide security to family and friends. Being extremely territorial, Crocodiles must watch not to be over protective or too dominating. While in these states, Crocodiles are insecure, indecisive and emotionally volatile.
Cherokee Turtle/ DAK’SI I’SB: Symbol, Turtle Island. Direction East. The Turtle Constellation Orion, one of three stars in the Cosmic Egg. In Mayan this is the Cosmic Hearth. Energy of Creative force at the one-on-one, personal level; dawn, awakening, birth. The beginning of each new era, this star in Orion appears with the rising Sun, heralding the creation of a new World cycle. TOTEM Imix/Dragon – Energy to understand all things sacred. Creation energy, connection for visions to learn the mysteries of the Universal knowledge. The dragon carries the source energy of life, revered in ancient cultures for power and wisdom.

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.
