12 Jaguar / IX – A Dream “with Heart”: Day 12 of 13


12 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Beloved Kin,

Tone 12 holds the Intention of Understanding. We are empowered by a Gift of Retrospection to connect dissociated parts into a new and meaningful Whole. Through comprehension we acquire a new perspective for application. Tone 12 is the day when new Wisdom is taken to Heart.

Jaguar/IX is the nahaul of Spirit, the shaman and shape-shifter with the power to cross dimensions to exist in any Time and Place. Residing in the North, the place of Wisdom and the Element of Air, the Jaguar relates to a state-of-mind and the capabilities of Consciousness.

The Jaguar walks an invisible path, leaving only the footprints behind. The Jaguar always makes its journey toward the East. The Jaguar moves in stealth using its power of invisibility to face any danger.

IX is a day that heightens our senses to Spirit and the Unseen Vibrations of Life. Jaguar is the Companion to Mother Earth, a guardian and protector. Jaguar holds the Earth Magic of Gratitude. The Jaguar’s path is the unseen journey to our Hopes and Dreams.

The AKBAL trecena raises our senses to the mystical experiences of Spirit. The Elders said to “hold our power.” Hold the personal experience close to the chest. As soon as human begins to define it, we limit what the highest meaning could be.

The Creator can make an impression with a very small detail. It was Magic because it was personal and a Divine Creator shared it with us. Keep Secrets with the Creator. You were ready to know. Leave a mystery unsolved for someone else’s own discovery.

Everyone deserves their Time of Personal Revelation, to unfold in their own way. It’s meant to be different than ours, and like our Divine Inspiration, received as if we are the very One that was meant to know it. “You have to be there” for a mystical experience that means something for YOU.



IX resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom and the Truth of the Innocents, like the children who always express Truth they feel. Our Spirit holds communion with the Green Beings. If you’ve repotted a root-bound plant, you knew it felt better with some room to grow.

Winged Beings in the Acropolis at Ek’ Balam – The Black “Star” Jaguar ruins is the place of Initiation as an “Illumination of Darkness.”When we’re invisible, the Ego isn’t trying to be seen. Our senses can be focused on an all-around experience of Life in a Living world. On the Jaguar’s path we only have to look down at our feet to know we are always in the perfect Time and Place. We can be blinded, but our ears will reach for “spatial hearing” and “spatial discernment.” Jaguar/IX can add a new dimension to our thoughts. It’s a day for understanding something out of the box.

To all my relations, may we Draw the Sacred Breath and Count our Blessings, asking for the experience to raise our Heart and Soul. ASK for a Miracle, if a Miracle is what you want to see. Human’s design is a Miracle, and we Will Know. Time will tell. Our True Identity is the Spirit of our Consciousness. Human matters are just a little stardust kicked up on our way through.

Make time for Mother Earth and receive the Healing of her Beauty in the all-around. Share something you love about being here, and now. Draw the Sacred Breath of Life and Breath of Spirit and join the morning chorus.

in lak’ech, i am another you

Debra, Jaguar Woman/9 Eagle/MEN

12 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)

Galactic Tone 12: Twelve is a gift of great capacity 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.

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 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.

[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.
