1 Monkey / CHUEN – Dawn of a New Creation: Day 1 of 13

1 Monkey / CHUEN


Greetings Kin,

The next 13 days…

Monkey/CHUEN is the Master of all Art who inspires us to Create the Beauty of Love. The Dog/OC and the Monkey/CHUEN hold affinity at the top of the Tzolk’in pyramid as the two characteristics central to the identity of a Supreme Creator. Love and the Consciousness to Create are the Divine Gifts shared with Human to manifest the Light of Life, Love, and Happiness in the world below.

1 Monkey/CHUEN is the beginning of a New Season of Life. We conceived the Seed of a New Generation. Now we Dream a New World where the Light of Love will Grow. The 3rd season of the Tzolk’in represents the planting of the Seed that will bear the Fruit of the Harvest. The K’iche Maya recognize this as the first day of a 20-day cycle of Creation. The first 13 days (the Monkey trecena) represent the Dawning of the Power to Create. The 7 days that follow manifest the Creation, celebrated as the Tzolk’in New Year. 8 Monkey/CHUEN (WAXAJQIB B’AATZ/8 B’atz) marks the Zenith Light of Pure Spirit and the Dedication of a New Life to a Mission of Love.

Monkey/CHUEN is the “Time Weaver.” The glyph illustrates all Time rolled up on the head of the Monkey. As the Master Artist, CHUEN marks the Dawning of a new Creation of Time. CHUEN rearranges the threads of our Life into a thing of Beauty as the Tapestry of our Life. CHUEN is the Time Traveler that holds the power to change the story of our Life from the Beginning to the End. 13 Night/AKBAL marks an Ascension to the Higher Consciousness that all our Dreams of Love are Destined to Come True.

The Monkey/CHUEN trecena is a cycle of Inspiration. CHUEN inspires us to create our own Reality. The Cherokee Day Sign is the Raccoon, a friendly trickster capable to coax a smile. Both the Monkey and Racoon play tricks to help us see the humor of our ways.

7th & 8th UINALS:
The Flint/ETZNAB trecena introduced us into the Core Days, guiding us to the Truth that Love is Meant to Be. Flint swept away the doubts and fears that were only an illusion to clear the way to a New and Higher Destiny. We saw “all that is not” and “all that could be” through the Consciousness to Create the Life we Love. The 8th uinal, like the 8th Tone, holds the Intention of Divine Justice. We will be guided to the Highest Light that every Intention of Love that’s created on behalf of the Whole is a Dream that was Promised to come True.

These are the most favorable days for influence, accomplishment, and Spiritual Consciousness. The higher numbered Tones are compared to a wave crashing – a powerful energy set on course to its destination.

  • 6 Wisdom/CIB – we are drawn into the Flow of Creation and connected to the Wisdom of the Ancestors.
  • 7 Earth/CABAN – balanced in the Above and Below by the Forces of Nature and the Movement of Mother Earth.
  • 8 Flint/ETZNAB – our Power is exalted by a Consciousness of Truth and an Intention of Divine Justice.
  • 9 Storm/CAUAC – our Transformation as Divine Creators is completed with the Creator’s Spark and the Revelation of our Unbridled Freedom to Create.

On 13 Dog/OC we Ascended with the Highest Meaning and Purpose for Creation. Monkey/CHUEN represents the alchemist at play that reminds us Life is a Game that we shouldn’t take so seriously. CHUEN guides a Sense of Humor to create the Happiest Dreams we can imagine. CHUEN will lead us to explore the whole landscape of our thoughts to discover the reasons why we do the things we do. The Monkey sees the Truth beyond human emotions through a perspective of curiosity. Creating is supposed to be fun, like it was when we were children. Monkey/CHUEN is the Master Artist that inspires us to express the Beauty of our Heaven on Earth.



Monkey/CHUEN celebrates the Consciousness of Love and its own Power to manifest the Beauty through creation. As a trecena of “Light” the Monkey inspires us to think about our own Gifts of Perception. At the Peak of the Tzolk’in pyramid, we can see the Truth all around – “all that is” and “all that is not” the Beauty of Love. Between the 2, the Dog/OC and the Monkey/CHUEN, we hold a Gift to discern a Higher Way to see everything, from the darkness of the Unknown to the first impression of our own Human doubts and fears. CHUEN can illuminate the Truth that through it all we are manifesting the Masterpiece of our own Expression of Love.

Both sides of Self are designed to work together toward a Divine End. Holding a Higher Consciousness of the Supreme Creator’s Dream of Unconditional Love, we can believe there is a Divine Purpose for all things. CHUEN is related to Water, the Living Light within that is moved through our Heart by a Divine Force of Life. Our Heart will always know a Higher way to See things through a Perspective of Love and the Experience to Feel “all that is” and “all that is not.”

On Tone 1 we are Divinely Inspired by our own Power of Consciousness. Manifesting the Creation of Love is only a matter of Seeing the Love we ARE Dreaming within.  We can use our Gift of Duality to realize the Life of our own Dreams. From “all that is not” Love, we are defining “all that is” in the realm of our Dreams. Becoming a Divine Creator isn’t something we have to “try to do.” It’s a Gift that we only need to Realize is True.

We all created a Divine Mother from the limitations we saw in the Human one. The Divine One was “only a figment of our imagination,” yet she was real enough to believe she was a Human possibility. We are creating the world of our Dreams through every discernment of darkness and light. To manifest the Creation on Earth we only need to conceive the Truth created Above is a Dream manifested Below.

In the 3rd Season of the Tzolk’in, the Life of a New Creation is out of our hands as a Dream is planted within the Seed. Through the Inheritance of Wisdom from our Experience, a new Dream can be grown from Higher Ground. Monkey/CHUEN is the alchemist that imagines the Life and Time of a New Generation that will conceive a new reflection of Light upon the darkness and unknown matters of the world Below. Monkey/CHUEN can guide a new Creation beyond the limits of our Imagination that we Knew Before.

On Tone 1 in Unity with the Creator, beginning the 3rd Season of Love, we hold the Wisdom to SEE the Love we imagine in the Darkness. We see a Dream within our Power to Choose, that our Expression of Love is the meaning for everything. K’inich Ahau is the Brightest Light of the Sun that first breaks at the beginning of every new cycle of “Light.” On Tone 1 our “first Light” is the Inspiration for a new Season of Love. In the Harvest cycle of the Tzolk’in round, by Divine Design we are manifesting the Fruit of our own Spirit.

In synchronicity with a Higher calendar of Transformation on a planetary scale, so is a New Season marked by Light shared from the Above to the Below. A New and Brighter Light of AHAU will inspire the Whole for the New Seed that will be germinated to Life in the Spring. We are given the Dreamtime of Winter to imagine the new Harvest that will be multiplied to abundance.

To all my relations, may a reality below give way to the Truth of Creation in our Dreams Above. May we seize our own Power of Consciousness to see the Light of the Love we ARE creating in our Dreams. May the Truth of Love be guide the Vision of our Creation of the Beauty that Will Be Balanced Above and Below. May we side-step all our doubts and fears, by the Truth it’s an ending we’d never choose by Common Sense. May we give thanks for Divine Guidance from the Sovereign Authority that manifested the Light and Beauty of the Universe.

May we celebrate the Consciousness to manifest the Love of our Dreams, and every New Beginning to start all over again, imagining the Truth of Love from the beginning to the end.

in lak’ech, i am another you

I’m grateful for the Darkness to See the Light.

Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Monkey/CHUEN trecena.

1 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI)

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.

Monkey/CHUEN: Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.

Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoons are full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy; magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart.

[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.
