12 Earth / CABAN – Transition of Light: Day 12 of 13


12 Earth / CABAN


Greetings Kin,

Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. Through a gift of Retrospection disassociated parts are drawn together into a new and functioning whole. 12 represents Humanity as the 12 tribes, 12 disciples, and 12 constellations. We are set apart by the Gifts of Understanding and Comprehension. Today, a new and Higher Truth is taken to the Heart.

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth and her Movement that Creates Time and Experience. CABAN lies in the East, holding the Element of Fire and Divine Inspiration. Fire holds the power of transmutation, changing other Earthly elements from one form to another.

Our Heart is moved by Earth/CABAN. CABAN is said to be a day when we realize what we are becoming. In the midst of the chaos we reached for a Dream. The illusions of the world could have led us down the wrong trail of thought, and yet, we carried on. Now we see what we are capable of when the going gets rough. Dreaming of a brighter future, we can imagine how far we could go when we have the Unbridled Freedom to Go For It.

The Aztec Day Sign is the Ollin, which simply means movement. They call it a “lucky day” to apply the “active principle” and an “unlucky day” to just go along. Like a clarion call for a migration of Spirit, CABAN can ignite the Vision of our Dream and build a Fire in our Heart.

Our challenge was to see the Truth beyond the chaos, and use CIMI’s gift of Clairvoyance to See the Future.  Earth/CABAN shares a Vision like a Dream, that we can grasp like a thought of the Beauty our Life could be.


In the realm of Spirit, we Move toward the Divine Truth by Intentions to follow the thoughts that lead us to that end. Along with the Divine Inspiration, we might realize the urgency to move before we forget the Feeling. This is a Day to receive the Light of Possibility like a “slice of life” in our future. We can see that it’s only part of a bigger picture we dreamed to be.

This is a day to run with those thoughts as far as we can imagine. We know we’re fired up, and if we hesitate, we could forget this feeling, that Now we Know is a Real Possibility.

Earth is the source of all Human knowledge. The glyph illustrates 3 divine resources of thought that are given to Human to discern the Truth of experience. The straight line is our linear mind of reason. The wavy line is the unbridled thought of our imagination. The circles that rise represent Divine thoughts that are the Ether of our Collective Wisdom and the Creator’s thoughts from Above. Using the 3 together, holds the Power of Genius.

The Heron is the Cherokee nahaul that lives its life as a perpetual migration, always moving on to the next field of Abundance  The Heron is a symbol of the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past. ALL Wisdom is born of Movement that creates the experiences of Life.

To all my relations, may put all the pieces of a future dream together, and imagine where the path leads to our future. My we remember to think once, twice, and Divinely again, to see the WHOLE picture, drawn together from the pieces and parts that we already know as the Truth.

May we turn our Love to the Mother who’s guided us from the very beginning. May we remember one who has held us in her arms and carried us to the Light. May we bring our prayers and offerings as a blessing to show her we remembered.

May offer our humble gratitude for the Beauty of Life, and the Freedom to Choose whatever our Heart wants to be. There’s a Divine Provision for every Human limitation. May we claim our Dreams are real, and the Faith is just as Powerful as Believing – when we give it Time.

in lak’ech, i am another you

12 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)

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.

Earth/Caban: Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.

Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Egyptian Phoenix. One Myth has it that a Beautiful Young Maiden (the Heron Spirit Bird) fell from the Tree of Life in the Sky Vault, & Found no Place to Land on the Primordial Sea. Turtle came to the Surface of the Water & gave her a Place to Land. She nested & Laid her Cosmic Egg, From which came all Life on Earth.” (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hall)
