THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK GUIDES A WAY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 2 represents our nature of Duality. We began in Unity with the Creator’s Divine Inspiration. On Tone 2 we are separated by our Human identity, to conceive the possibility for a Dream “to be, or not to be.” Human’s means of discernment is through a comparison between one thing and another. Our body is a symbol in its symmetry of “right and left.”
Tone 2 defines the Inherent thoughts that we consider in the 2nd Hour of Light. First we wake from the Dream, and seeing the light at the window, we realize what we’d like to do. Before we ever make it to the morning routine we are thinking about yesterday. We had the same dream. What stopped us yesterday? What could we do differently today?
Tone 2 is our first assessment of what is humanly possible. We can expect thoughts to trail off toward an inventory of our limitations. We don’t have to if we follow the Deer’s way of Vigilant Consciousness. At an altar we could remember the Divine Provision for all limitations. Today we might FEEL the challenge in the Human effort.
Star/LAMAT is a symbol of the Scion. We were created to be a Personification of a Divine Light. LAMAT defines the Strength of our Divinity and the way to shine our Light. The glyph illustrates the 4 directions, meaning we are meant to shine our Light equally all around. The shape that looks like a star also represents the hole made in the ground for the planting of the Seed. A planting tool was drawn side-to-side and up-and-down to create the hole where the seed was placed in the Earth. LAMAT is a symbol of Venus that shares Human’s cycle of 260-days, appearing as the Morning and Evening Star. Humanity was planted on Earth to be the Light to shine in the world through the darkness and light.
LAMAT’s totem is the Rabbit, a cauldron of Creation, Sexuality and Reproduction manifested by the Overflow of Love. LAMAT is said to be a day of “pure luck” when whatever we hold in our thoughts as an “object of affection” will be multiplied to abundance. The Rabbit holds a power of “instant manifestation.”
Star/LAMAT resides in the South, the direction of our Relationships with one another and with the Natural World. The South represents Human’s tangible experiences, represented by the Element of Earth. LAMAT can be a “jumpy day” of back and forth thoughts. Like a rabbit, we can tremble at the prospect of keeping such powerful thoughts on track. We may get off to a slow start, but we will FEEL the Time and Place for our own Leap of Faith. This is a good day to call upon the Wisdom of the Ascended Masters who have walked this way before. If we begin at an altar asking for the Provision of a Divine Agency, we’ll have a Spiritual Tool of Faith to fall back on when we realize we’re following a rabbit trail that won’t lead our thoughts to the end we really hope for.
This is a very important day to think about what you WANT, not what you Don’t Want. It’s okay if you forget, when you Remembered to ask for help from the beginning. Then when you DO remember, you’ll hold the Faith in a Higher Power.
Master Number 22: Tone 2, in Uinal 2 represents the Master Number 22. The Master Number 22 relates to our Life Path and resonates with service and duty, balance and harmony in our lives and relationships. 22 is a Sign from the Angels that no matter what the circumstances, Trust that everything will turn out for the Highest Good of All, and that everything happens for a reason. The Master Number 22 guides the Intention to Master our lives and to help change the lives of others in a practical and tangible way. 22 guides you to Keep working diligently on your Spiritual path, Keep the Faith, and Stand Strong in your personal Truths. [Sacred Scribes]
Seed/KAN guided us to make choices for our own Life, free of any obligations. We fail to shine all around when we place expectations on our Relationships. Not everyone is going think we’re great. We don’t have to take it personally. And, we don’t have to try harder to receive their love. Not everyone is going to be in the same Time and Place.
In an earlier round of the Tzolk’in I saw how hard I was trying to make friends with someone who had zero interest. I always walked away from the exchange wondering what more I could do. It seemed hopeless. It took Star/LAMAT for me to see I was focusing all my light in one direction. This person was always surrounded by other people who WERE friendly and available. I was practically ignoring them, in this “Human mission” to turn the One to See Me. After a new intention to shine all around, things changed all around. Tracking my own thoughts was the only way to finally see what I was doing. I thought it was ME that didn’t have a chance. SHE didn’t have a chance. I had expected her to fail in every exchange by an end I always saw at the beginning.
2 Star/LAMAT can help us see Truth through our interactions in the world. If there is a particular relationship in your life that isn’t working, this is a good day to track your own thoughts to see things from both sides of the experience. It’s a Divine Gift to be able to do it. Our Mission can be fulfilled through an Intention to live and let live. The Sacred Right of Choice is the Gift that Defines us as the Scion of a Supreme Creator. We want to make our own choices. So must we allow others the Freedom of Choice. To personify the Light of Unconditional Love, we must claim that Every Choice can be turned to a Divine Meaning and Purpose.
We are not “better or worse.” We’re just different. Only a Divine Creator ever knows what we know or has seen what we’ve seen. If we apply our Wisdom of Common Sense, we’ll know that every Human Being will reach their limit of tolerance and understanding. By Divine Grace a Higher Light will make up for it that shines for us no matter WHERE we are on the path. We aren’t meant to judge another path. We aren’t a witness to the experience.
The Elders say that even those that serve as leaders of spirit should be free to be Human Beings. We can’t expect perfection from ANY Human Being. If we do, we’re not being honest with our self. Who are you? What do YOU want? Can you GIVE it? The Mayan priest leads the way of the Golden Rule. On Star/LAMAT we can see that we are all in this together. Whether our Light is Seen or Unseen, always depends on “where we are” in the moment. If we can’t see someone else’s light, we can choose to believe we just caught them in a different Time and Place. We ALL deserve to be seen in our Best Light. That’s how WE hope others will Remember us when we forget.
It doesn’t mean we can’t go our own way. We just don’t have to diminish the Light of someone else to make that Choice for our own Best Interest. We can leave a door open to another Time and Place. It’s not easy when our feelings are on the line. But, we CAN with a strategy for Divine Intervention.
What is REALLY going on with Tone 2 is the Communion of Divine Relationship with a Higher One Above. A Supreme Creator hears our thoughts to discern the true condition of our heart. A Divine Consciousness sees what’s needed for us to realize the Truth of a Dream. Sharing the ways we expect to fail, a Divine Consciousness can inspire a Truth to move us for a Divine Meaning and Purpose.
To all my relations, may we find a tool, a strategy, that will help us remember to see one another in our Best Light. The Elders say that all things desire to be Seen and Acknowledged. LOVE IS a choice to see that we all place expectations on our self that we find difficult if not impossible to carry out. It didn’t mean we didn’t care.
May we remember the clarity of Truth we know through Forgiveness that is Tolerance and Understanding. When we can’t understand something’s thinking, may we see to know there’s a feeling behind it that does matter. Feelings won’t always make sense, though they lie at the heart of what we Believe is the Truth. May we allow others to believe something different, remembering truth FEELS different in every Time and Place.
May we remember the Jaguar’s Spiritual Tool of Gratitude that empowers the “earth magic” to believe. May we tune our thoughts to the Sacred Right of Choice and the Divine Provision for every choice we make. May we Love our Self just as we are, WILLING and REACHING to be something greater. May we remember the Authority of the Highest One to change us. Our Mission isn’t to try to fix our self. God will fix whatever is necessary to carry out the Mission in Divine Time. May we Live and Let Live, and shine all around, remembering what God has created never needs fixing by a Human Being.
May we give thanks as we count our blessings, for the Harvest of Love a Supreme Creator multiplies to abundance.
in lak’ech, i am another you

THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for a forecast of Deer/MANIK trecena energies.
2 Star/LAMAT (Cherokee, Rabbit/NOQUI’SEGWA)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Star/LAMAT: Star energy is multiplication of all things to abundance. Star has been associated with the fertility of rabbits for its ability to multiply. As each sun in the sky, Star persons shine equally in all directions. This natural tendency of harmony and balance can become compulsion, motivating Star to be too agreeable and too generous, rejected gifts cause fear and resentment. When a Star believes it has been given too much, they are weakened or may even collapse. In this “Black Hole” state, Stars are prone to verbal jousting and arguing to force their point of view on everyone.
Cherokee, Rabbit/NOQUI’SEGWA: Symbol-Venus, The Morning Star cycle of 260 days and Evening Star cycle of another 260 days, inspired the 13 numbers, 20 Day sign Sacred Calendar. Rabbit is the Trickster of Cherokee culture, matching the Coyote in other nations. The personification of Light and New Life, Sunrise, the scion of the Moon-Father of earth children, the Rabbit is fertility, be fruitful and multiply. Represents softness, gentleness and vulnerability. LAMAT– Totem Rabbit. Energies of re-birth, regeneration, ripening, harvest and abundance. This person is overflowing with love energy in all areas of life. Spiritual growth is natural and with ease due to the unconditional love energy that flows.

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.
