1 Sun / AHAU – A Journey of Illumination: Day 1 of 13


1 Sun / AHAU

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13-Days…

Sun/AHAU is the Lord of the Tzolk’in, and the symbol of the Supreme Creator of Life, Light, and Happiness. AHAU is a Master of all things. “Suns are artistic, heroic athletes, visionaries with wise judgment who lead and defend the people.” As a symbol of the Divine Masculine, AHAU represents the Light of Illumination, combined with the Strength of Will to manifest the Creation.

Sun/AHAU is the Omega, the Light of the Whole as the all-in-one. AHAU shines a Light on all things hidden in the shadows, and the Truth that is hidden in plain sight. AHAU shares the Light for a Divine Revelation.

Our walk with the Supreme Creator begins in synchronicity with a new cycle of Solar Light, and marking a new Season of Planetary experience. In the North, we enter the season of Summer, the time when we see the Harvest from the seeds that were sown in the Spring. Illuminated by the Light that casts no shadows, we will see the Fruit of our Spirit.

Yet, we are still just beginning the Human harvest cycle for our next Tzolk’in Ascension to a Higher Consciousness of Being. Sun/AHAU connects our Consciousness to the Wisdom and Guidance of our Ancestors. AHAU identifies Humanity by our Highest Meaning and Purpose, to shine for the Whole like a Supreme Creator shines for us.

The Harvest we see at a Planetary scale bears the fruit of all the seeds we’ve sewn before. From a worldly perspective, we are the Seed of a New Generation that is faced with the ends of generations of Humanity who have turned away from the Light of the Truth. We choose to hold Faith in a Divine Intervention from the beginning for an Intention to right the wrongs of Humanity and manifest the Justice of Harmony and Equity.

Cycle of Darkness
Yellow and White Day Signs are “Dark” marking a day or cycle for the Application of Wisdom. Deer/MANIK was a cycle of “Light,” incoming Inspiration that inspired a Mission and a Way to carry out in Communion with the Light Above. Through an Intention of Vigilant Consciousness, we were inspired to lead by an example of Humility, Forgiveness, and Love for the Whole. Our Faith was inspired by the Light. Through an application of the Truth of Divine Guidance, our Higher Truth will stand by the Wisdom of our own experience.

The 3rd Uinal
1 Sun/AHAU completes the 2nd Uinal of the Tzolk’in. In the harvest cycle of the 260-day Tzolk’in round, we are completing our germination. We made our way through the darkness underground. In the 3rd Uinal of 20-days, we reach the Light. Number 3 holds an Intention of Movement. The 2nd uinal, like the 2nd Tone, marks a Human experience of Duality. We were the Seed working our way through the darkness to reach the Truth of Light Above. All our effort was invested in the Human Will “to be or not to be” Divine Human Beings. We saw the dark and the light of the Whole. We were guided to see the Truth of the way things are in the beginning, so we will know the Truth of the Light in the end. The 3rd uinal initiates Movement that brings a new Divine Intention to Life, and a New Revelation of a Divine Power Above.

Holy Day: 8 Deer/MANIK
On the Peak Tone 8 of “pure spirit” our Transformation begins as a Divine Initiation. 8 Deer/MANIK is the Holy Day observed as a celebration of the way of the Mayan priest, and a Day of Initiation for those who have dedicated themselves to the Mission. 8 Deer/MANIK is the first Initiation of the Tzolk’in round. A spiritual initiation marks a Time when we’re ready to take the next evolutionary step. In synchronicity with a Solar Eclipse on the Cardinal Cross of the Solstice Axis, we have crossed a threshold into Cancer, a sign of Compassionate Love and a Guiding Light for Home and Family.

We will learn to walk in a new way, as we Realize the Wisdom of the Experience. Reaching the Light of the Sun, our Growth will be accelerated in the Balance of Power between the Light Above and the Wisdom of Humanity that was manifested Below. Sun/AHAU is the Light that wakes us up for a Divine Purpose of Creation.

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance
The Peak Tones of the trecena are the best days for personal performance. These are days when we feel confident in our intentions and communication with others.

  • 6 Serpent/CHICCHAN – Lights the Fuse of Spirit; “lightning in the blood” to awaken our Sixth Sense of Knowing.
  • 7 Transformer/CIMI – a Balancing of the Above and Below promises a Major Life Change, and the Gift of Clairvoyance
  • 8 Deer/MANIK – a Transformation of Divine Justice, measured by the Truth of our Intention
  • 9 Star/LAMAT – a Revelation of our Self as the Personification of the Creator’s Light


Lego Master Builder by Nathan Sawaya

June 22, 2020 holds the Master Number 22 x 2 (2020 resolves to 22). 20 symbolizes the power of 2 sets of hands working together for a Divine Cause. When Human hands are employed for the Intention of our Spirit, hands Above and Below are engaged by a Divine Purpose. Human’s whole experience of Time is expressed on the Mayan Calendars as 2020. Our Identity is defined by 20 Divine archetypes. The first 18 months of the Haab calendar have 20 days led by 20 archetypes, completing the 360 degrees of planetary initiation. Number 22 divided by 7 approximates the the irrational number π, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. The Ollin at the center of the Aztec calendar marks 20 Times and Places of Conscious alignment with the Meaning and Purpose of Time. Number 22 is said to be a symbol of Human’s greatest power, a Divine Teacher within that guides our Soul’s Mission and a Divine Meaning and Purpose To Be.

The Master Builder 22 possesses the ability to think up elaborate plans and to bring them to life in a big way.  Number 22 brings the qualities of insight, talent, courage, intelligence, power and charisma. Through Practical Wisdom, Master builders cannot achieve their grand designs by working alone. Sun/AHAU illuminates our own talent and our Soul’s Purpose. If you are born on a day marked by the Master Number 22, it’s said that it will be the “Achilles Heel” for one that invests the Power in their own worldly intentions. The Intention of Divine Wisdom is the means to Create a Life of our Highest Hopes and Aspirations for the Whole.

Carl Jung referred to the “ancient old man/woman” that is the Wisdom of all Human experience carried within our cellular memories. Sun/AHAU, marked as the 20th position, is expressed as the zero, the core of our Tree of Life and the Whole Wisdom upon which we created to carry on through the Circle (0) of Life. Living Human Beings are the head of the snake that can grab the tail in the Revelation that we hold the Wisdom of ALL Time from the Beginning to the End.

Sun/AHAU resides in the South, the Direction of our Relationships with one another and with the Natural World. Holding the Element of Earth, Sun/AHAU forges our Life in Right Relationship as One. Through the Light of AHAU, we will realize a body of knowledge and our own special talents, and a Divine Dream within that is what we’ve always wanted to be. The Master Builder illuminates a personal longing, our Soul’s urge to be. Sun/AHAU offers a Revelatory Light that we CAN, and with the Wisdom to call on Higher Wisdom, We WILL. AHAU will connect us to the Wisdom of Divine Genius.

In the first 2 uinals of the Tzolk’in, our “I Am” was defined by our Divine Design. We were prepared to begin our New Life with an Intention of Movement. Ascending with the Consciousness of Light that reaches down to Renew and Regenerate our Spirit, we’ll realize the Power to define our Life by a Divine Meaning and Purpose of our own Divine Design. Walking with the Light, we’ll see shadows as only shadows, and Truth that has always been – hidden in plain sight. Every encounter with the Sun marks a Revelatory Experience of Knowing. From the Lord of ALL Time, we’ll see the Truth of our Time and Place in the Whole Circle of Life. We’ll see that though we are beginning again, our Higher Ground is a Divine Accumulation of all the Wisdom that has gone before. We’re moved to See and Acknowledge the evolutionary Inheritance that manifested Our Own Power to manifest our Highest Creation.

Ascension on a Lunar Eclipse – 13 Road/EB is the U.S. Independence Day holiday, July 4, 2020. Earth will be centered between the Sun and Moon in the Sign of Cancer at the 13th degree of the Compassion of Mother’s Love. July 4th can be a Celebration of Humanity’s Higher Road to Freedom and Liberty.

Through this trecena we will Honor the Old Ones. Through an APPLICATION of Divine Wisdom, we will be Guided by their Light. The Maya believe that to repeat the words, the prayers, and the traditions of ritual and sacred ceremony was to offer a place for the Old Ones to live in our Consciousness. Human is a living Sanctuary for Love and Wisdom.

We are led through a cycle of “darkness” to apply the Truth to an experience. The game plan is to follow a way that seeks the Highest Wisdom from Above. The Cherokee Day Sign is the Flower, as the faces that follow the path of the Sun across the sky. The Flower is the “Chalice of the Infinite, Caldron of Creation.” We reached the Light from the Darkness below. We’ve reached a Time and Place to Grow to Maturity and Blossom in the realization of a Divine Purpose. Ours will be a Grand attempt to Remember, and Follow the Light from Above. It’s Time to apply the Vigilant Consciousness to follow the Truth we Love. Through a dedicated practice, we will grasp the thread of Ether that completes a circuit to a Divine Source of Power and Wisdom. Our Mission will be to stand as the “hollow bone” for the Light of ALL Time to shine through us on behalf of the Whole that raised the Higher Ground of our Possibilities.

The Elders say that whenever we Intend to follow the Inspiration of Spirit, we must call directly upon the High, Higher, and Highest Lights for Humanity. There are lesser Lights that hold a presence in the world that won’t lead us to our Highest Intentions. The test of Human Nature will be the willingness to Humble our Self to a Higher Consciousness, to invest all our Power in a Divine Cause.

To all my relations, may we Kneel in Humility to the Supreme Creator who Designed the Human Seed for a Divine Meaning and Purpose to be. May we call upon a Divine Agency of the Highest Order to help us See the Light we were given to share through our own talents and personal interests. As we take each step, may we Know a Divine Creator intended us to Know our own most Divine Possibility to create something we Love, and a Life of Meaning worthy to shine its Light through a Life Below.

May we Light our candles as a Fire to Honor the Wisdom of all Time that shines for us. May we remember the “hard road” that every Human Being has taken to be lead to the Divine Truth. When we call upon Divine Wisdom, may we Remember the blood, sweat, and tears that was invested to Know it. When we call upon the Ascended Ones, may we look at their example to believe that what they accomplished WAS carried out by a Human Being – Wisdom worthy to be remembered, preserved, hidden, and veiled in mystery, for those who would take up the Staff of the Deer. May we believe that all the Genius invested in a worldly end, will never compare to Highest Aspirations of a Supreme Creator. The movement of worldly intentions only creates the sound of discord. Movement guided by Love will Sing our Song in Harmony with the Universe.

May we follow the Wisdom of our Ancestors, and fall into step with the Light that leads to our Highest Creation, a Life defined by Divine Wisdom and Love as the legacy we will leave behind that will shine its Light forever.  May we give thanks for the Dream of our Life that we will Know as our Soul’s Mission by the Light that we were Divinely Given all the talents, the ways, and the means to carry it out. May we dedicate a path to the altar, where the Answers to our Prayers for the Whole will build the Life of our Dreams. We’ve reached a New Light of the Sun. May we be like the Flowers that follow the Light of Life, Love, and Happiness.

in lak’ech, i am another you

Ian Xel Lungold, 12 Sun/AHAU

Ian’s last Dream of Creation was to join the Legions of Light Above to help shine a light for our way. His Destiny was to be a Light of Understanding to create the Life of our Dreams. He reached from beyond to call for a Sacred Ceremony in Ek’ Balam to Divinely Manifest the Dream. 1 Wind/IK disseminated a Divine idea to go on my pilgrimage to the Mayan ruins at the Time of celebration of the Day of the Dead. When I looked up the date on the Tzolk’in, Ian’s Mayan birthday 13 years after his passing fell on October 31, 2018. There were many Signs in the Numbers and Dates that were self-evident as a Time and Place of Divine synchronicity. Ian’s voice was present there in my thoughts with a single message repeated, “Time and Place. Time and Place. Time and Place.” I remember Ian on every Sun/AHAU as the Truth that we are in a Divine Time and Place to see things we’ve never seen before. I Honor Ian as One in the Light of the Whole Above, that we can Feel as one who walked in Our Time and Place on Earth, to share the Light of a Way that is written within. This is a time to pay close attention to the Signs and Symbols that appear in your life. So is your Destiny written on a calendar and Your Divine Times and Places were marked from the beginning of Time. You WILL see it on a path dedicated to See the Truth that YOUR Divine Life was meant to be. Following the Light, YOU will grow and blossom into something New, the Light of which you’ve never Known before. Ian led us as a Human Light Below, and he can guide us to the Higher Understanding of our Spirit through the Light from Above.

MEDICINE WAY: Eating the Light
The Elders shared a tradition of “Eating the Light.” A blessing of cornmeal was brought as the offering to greet the Dawning of a new Day.  Cornmeal was held in the right hand, receiving 4 breaths of the thoughts of our prayers. Blessings were called to each of the 4 directions before the cornmeal was released before the Light of the Sun. Then we took our right hand to “sweep the Light” across the horizon to draw the light to our mouth 4 times. It is a Living Demonstration of a Truth in the realm of Spirit. We are fed the Light of Divine Consciousness from a Higher Light Above. The Sun’s Light is a shower of photons that cause an excitation in the matter of living things. Photons are not matter, but particles of Energy. Movement creates friction and the heat creates Light. Sun/AHAU will reveal the Truth Above is True Below.

for a trecena energy forecast, insight on the 3rd Uinal, and daily aspects of the Sun/AHAU trecena.

1 Sun/AHAU (Cherokee, Flower/GUN’TSI EK)

Galactic Tone 1:  Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

Sun/AHAU: Day of the ancestors and connection to their guidance. The divine face of the sun – lord, musician, singer, dancer, and marksman. Suns are artistic, heroic athletes, visionaries with wise judgment who lead and defend the people. So much is expected from themselves and by other people that unfulfilled expectations are a certainty. An accumulation of these disappointments may lead Sun to evade responsibilities, not accept corrections and even build resentment and disdain towards others. Suns should simplify their lives to be able to rise and shine with unconditional love once again.

Cherokee, Flower/GUN’TSI EK: Symbol is the Sun, place of abode of Great Spirit. The Sun creates, nurtures, and is the super communicator, the way station that relays messages and energy from other stars in the galaxy; provides energy for channeling information from the Ancestors; speaking the Living Language of Light, which ignites the consciousness in others. Gold is the color of courage and opportunity of wealth. Creative arts, master craftsman expressing divinity and wisdom through their creations. The face of the flower follows the Sun gathering the fire of creativity, illuminating harmony and balance, resonating peace and continuity within the human spirit. This is the Sign of the Chalice of the Infinite, Caldron of Creation.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. 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. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]

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.
