THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX – WALKING IN BALANCE
“Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. Serpent lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.” – Cherokee calendar
Seed/KAN was the Spark of Divine Power as the Consciousness of Knowing. KAN symbolizes the Force of the Dragon within. Serpent/CHICCHAN is the symbol of the Divine Source of Human’s “lightning in the blood” that the Maya call the Sixth Sense of the Heart.
Serpent/CHICCHAN resides in the East with the Element of Fire to transmute matter from one form into another. CHICCHAN is a Force Above with the Power to Call our Attention to a Divine Communion of Spirit. CHICCHAN marks the Truth of Divine Discernment through our Feelings.
The Serpent Feels its way through the vibrations of movement on Mother Earth. The Snake sees by Feeling. To Remember the Wisdom of the Truth we have to Feel it. CHICCHAN guides us to pay attention to our own gut instincts. On CHICCHAN our Spiritual Gifts are awakened like the Kundalini energy that travels up the spine to the crown of the head.
Our Spiritual Gifts were given in harmony and equity from the beginning. We are not trying to receive the supernatural gifts of Spirit. The challenge to overcome is to see what has always been working perfectly and to UNDERSTAND what it means.
Tone 12 holds the Intention of Human Understanding. This is a day when disassociated pieces and parts of our experience are all drawn together into a new and meaningful whole. 12 is a symbol of Humanity, and Serpent CHICCHAN is our connection within to a Power Above.
The Jaguar led a Vision Quest for Light of New Spiritual Wisdom. CHICCHAN holds the Force to manifest a Spiritual Experience that combines a Divine Revelation with Truth that can be Felt and Known to Human, body and soul. CHICCHAN awakens our Spiritual Senses. The Serpent will guide us to shed our skin to Feel what our Heart needs to Know.
You can discover this gift in yourself if you Remember when your heart was captivated in the moment you saw a bride walk down the aisle, or witnessed the reunion of a parent and child. It is the same gift that sends chills and raises your hair on end when Sense a Feeling of Danger. CHICCHAN is a Divine Call to Consciousness – to pay attention to a Discernment spoken through the heart. It’s the Truth.
We think we have to conjure our Gifts of Spirit, though we always hold them and the Rightful Use is to Receive the Truth when it is Divinely Offered from Above. Our Heart is tuned like an antennae to Divine Love. From our Highest State of Consciousness, we can know the Truth of what it means. The Jaguar has guided us to the Truth of a Light within we can Feel and Believe. We are prepared for the Wisdom of our Experience to become the Truth that will stand that we ARE Divinely Guided from within. We will FEEL the Truth. And, we’ll KNOW it’s True without having to see it with our eyes in a world below to Believe the Truth.
CHICCHAN is a symbol of Kulkulkan/Quetzlcoatl, the Feathered Serpent that appears as a descending Light down the stairs of the calendar pyramid at Chichen Itza. The calendar pyramid is an engineering marvel of Light and Sound. The El Casillo pyramid is the Temple of Kulkulkan that is set on a 33-degree angle and positioned on the ley lines shared by the pyramids of Giza. The calendar pyramid emanates Light and the Vibration of the Movement and Fire in the Heart of Earth.
We are positioned for an Experience of Spirit and a Divine Revelation of Truth. This is a day for Vigilant Consciousness to Feel the Truth of the Experience. Pay attention to your Intuition, your psychic gifts of telepathy and clairvoyance. Your Feelings are Truth when they are accompanied by the Charge of CHICCHAN’s Light that grabs the heart and “compels the blood to speak.” Pay attention to the experience that can mark a new and Higher Truth of Understanding.
Who are You? What did You want to experience and know through your own intention of a Vision Quest? Did you want to come face-to-face with your own totem Spirit? Did you hope for a Spiritual Vision? Look back to the beginning to remember the Feelings and the Divine Inspiration that moved you in the Beginning. Believe in the Answer to your prayers and ask a Supreme Creator to be Open to Receive what your Heart Longed to Know. Today the “impossible” can be realized as “possible” when you know the Truth with every fiber of your being. CHICCHAN will ignite the Force to know for sure when a Divine Discernment is True. When we reach beyond the limits of Human’s knowing, CHICCHAN is the Divine Provision that will reach out to us when the Truth of NOW is important to Know NOW.
Our Spiritual Gifts can be subtle because they are SO COMMON. Think of all the times you’ve felt CHICCHAN. How often did you give it a second thought that it had a Divine Meaning and Purpose. Yet, the Moment you See and Acknowledge it, you recognize it’s True. Discovering our own Spiritual Gifts is like that at first. Though, once they have been Seen and Acknowledged for what they are and how they feel, we realize how they are always there to some degree as a Light from within.
You’ve felt CHICCHAN when you walked into a room and had a sense of something going on. At the most subtle level, imagine the difference you feel if you’ve walked into a model home that’s been staged. It make look like a cozy home, but it never FEELS like a “home” where Life goes on. The more you begin to explore these feelings, seeing and acknowledging them as a True Means of Divine Discernment, to more you will Feel it all over the place.
CHICCHAN holds the Power to move us by a Divine Force. The Serpent will lead us to “strike out” when we’re backed into a corner. So can CHICCHAN guide us to “strike out” for a Divine Intention of Love. CHICCHAN can trigger the Passion to Love.
To all my relations, may we give thanks for the Blessing of Light that will awaken the Truth of our Highest Gift of Knowing. May the Truth we reached to claim for Human’s Mind of Reason be moved to the Heart as the Whole Truth of Wisdom that will be ours to hold.
May we be willing to shed our skin so we can expand and grow. May we Accept the Truth that we have to FEEL our way for Truth to become our own Higher Ground. May we Give thanks for a Force of Divine Love that will claim our Heart, and remember the opportunity to share the Power and Light of our Feelings of Love ALL around. May we give thanks for a Divine Gift to be Moved by the Truth we know in our Heart.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE TRECENA OF JAGUAR/IX
12 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI)
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.
Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.
Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.

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.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: My gift for a New Tzolk’in Round…
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the 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.
ERRATA: I discovered an error in the Peak Tones listed for the Deer/MANIK trecena (our next journey). A corrected “Revision 1” was uploaded to the 13-day Trecena Guide page on June 6, 2020. If you downloaded the Field Guide on an earlier date, please download the corrected version as a replacement.
