THE TRECENA OF DEER/MANIK GUIDES A WAY
MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Peak Tone 8 holds the Intention of the Justice of Harmony and Equity. Number 8 is a symbol of “pure spirit,” Eternal Life, and Abundance to Infinity. Through our Intention to become a Divine Human Being, we fulfill a Divine Meaning and Purpose for ALL Time.
On Tone 8 our Transformation is begins under the Hand of Divine Authority. Through a Truth of Divine Justice, Faith will be transformed into Believing.
Jaguar/IX is the shaman and the shape-shifter that can cross the threshold of Spirit. IX is a symbol of the Divine Feminine aspects of Compassionate Love and Discernment. The Jaguar guides a journey to the East toward the Light of Illumination. The Jaguar uses the “earth magic” of Gratitude to see the Truth of a Divine Provision for everything. Jaguar is the Day Sign of Spirit. Leading us across the threshold to the dimension of Spirit, we discover the Real World.
The Jaguar sees what’s Real from the Highest Perspective. Counting our Blessings we will find there is a Divine Meaning for every step of the way. IX resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom. Holding the Element of Air, IX relates to the faculties of the mind. The Element of Air holds the electrical signals of thought, and the Creator’s first Breath of Creation. Today our Heart will know that Life, Love and the Beauty of Earth wasn’t a “lucky accident.” Love is the proof that The Creation is an Expression of a Divine Consciousness. Without Love there is no measure for Happiness and no reason for a Perception of Beauty.
We are Beings of Consciousness created for an Experience. We only needed 5 senses to define matter. We were designed to imagine ALL Time and Space, our past, present and future. We were given a Consciousness to make the “impossible” possible, reaching for Truth and Wisdom outside of our Self. Love is a state-of-heart and mind that proves the Divinity of the Creation.
The Jaguar holds a deep and abiding Love for Mother Earth, seeing her as the source of every blessing. Jaguar/IX employs the heightened senses of Vigilant Consciousness, feeling the vibrations of Life all around. Dedicating our Self to the Jaguar’s path we will always end in the Light and the Truth that’s Real.
On Jaguar/IX we hold the Highest Vision of “all that is” and “all that is not.” In the Zenith Light we can see the Powers Above and the Powers Below. Kneeling in the Light of an altar, we are seen without any shadows by the Highest Power of Love and the Light of Authority. A Power Greater than all our Human limitations will lead us to our Divine Destiny.
The Jaguar guides us with a Light to See the Unseen. The Elders say that Mother Earth is the Creator’s first gift to Human. We were given life in a living world. The Jaguar is said to hear the Heartbeat of Mother Earth. All living things celebrate the Light of a New Day. Even the birds sing to celebrate the celestial event. It’s said that the lyrics of their Morning Chorus is, “Here I Am. This is my Time and Place To Be”
Our Life is carried on by a Divine Power Above. We are a Light of Life and Love Breathed by Spirit. On Jaguar/IX we know there is a Divine Meaning and Purpose for Here and Now. Our Transformation will begin as our own “morning chorus” to share the Joy for the Time of our Life. From a realm of Spirit we can see the Light of our Unlimited Possibilities.
This is a day to draw close to Mother Earth and to Give thanks for all her Resources of Life and Love. Love is the Meaning of Life and the Light for the Way.
The Jaguar holds the Power to Illuminate the darkness. Every step we make in Faith will lead to the Light of Higher Illumination. The Jaguar shares the Divine Discernment that we are exactly where we are meant to be. This is a Time and Place for us to celebrate, “Here I Am, in MY Time and Place to Be.” The Living Ones must reach the Higher Ground for the Whole. This is Our Time and Place in the Story of Humanity. Long after the Names are forgotten, the Love we left behind will still shine its light.
Under the Tone of “Pure Spirit” we’ll Know we marked new milestones on the Road of Human’s Destiny. An Intention to Love holds a Power of Light that can travel to the ends of Time. IX awakens shamanic abilities and facilitates multi-dimensional magic. The Jaguar senses the Truth of Powers Above and Below, and Knows the Divine Authority of Light to dispel the darkness. Jaguar/IX shares the Unseen Power of Live with our Heart.
To all my relations, may we rise from the darkness of our doubts and fears, believing in the Divinity of our Dreams. May we Believe because we can Dream. May we celebrate our Life as a walk in Spirit through the Beauty of ALL Life on Mother Earth.
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.
8 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
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”.
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 Cherokee 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. Ix: The Kab’awil represents the heart of the planet, the female reproductive tract, the face of a jaguar and points east on the world map. Ix: woman, tiger. Conducive to pray for grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters and wives day. For wisdom at 4 Balances, cunning and protection of Mother Nature. To thank the Earth for sustenance. Ix is the native cunning, enterprising, vigorous, bold and realistic.

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.
