9 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

Peak Tone 9 raises the Intention of Patience to see the Bigger Picture. There is said to be suffering to bare for lack of insight if we fail to take this important step. There is always something more to know. Tone 9 represents the Truth of Divine Discernment.

The Number 9 symbolizes the Whole Investment of Consciousness and Faith that manifests the Higher One (10). We reached Higher Ground. We saw the Truth of Higher Power.

Without Patience we’re likely to claim the Power as our own. By Human Nature we’re stuck on the Creations we want to see in the material world for the Whole Truth. We Felt the Truth and Human wants to See the Reason we Believe.

We are guided by CIMI through the Chaos of a Major Life Change. CIMI guides the way to find our Comfort, Remembering the future that we KNOW is the Truth. We don’t have to reach  any farther than that to believe. CIMI is the Divine Comforter with the “soft hand” to tend our tears and remind us to take the Sacred Breath.

Everything that looks and feels so unfamiliar is the proof that we are all changing. We’re all coping in our own ways that are different than they were before. We tend to over-compensate or under-compensate with every major change. It depends on whether we are going with the change or resisting the change – defending a right not to change. WE ALL NEED A LITTLE TIME.

The Manifestation of Divine Justice, guided by the Year Bearer of the Haab, 10 Wind/IK, won’t happen all at once. All cycles of Transformation reach their Peak in the center of Time. The Peak of the Haab will fall 6 months from the New Year (03/31/2021) around October 1, 2021 (12 CIMI). 12 Transformer/CIMI falls in the Ascending 13th uinal of this Tzolk’in round, the Days that guide us to the Highest Light of Who we Are and a Higher Dream of Life to carry on.

In 2022, the Year Bearer on the Haab calendar’s “vague-year” count is 11 Deer/MANIK. 11 reflects the Intention of Resolution. By tradition, Tone 11 is the day when the Mayan priest climbs to the Highest Altar. 11 is a Divine Resolution of Higher Truth. Deer/MANIK is the day sign of the Mayan priest. The correspondence between the number and the day sign, magnify the experience. We are raised throughout 2022 to a Higher Perspective of a Divine Communion with the One Above. 11 Deer/MANIK is a symbol of one who follows a dedicated path. The Mayan priest is not a “preacher,” but one who counts the days and carries out the rituals and sacred ceremonies on behalf of the whole. MANIK leads that intention for a Higher Consciousness of Divine Agency in our life, until the Next Haab New Year (03/31/2023 – by Northern count.)

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of Spirit, the pure Intention of Light that sends its Love from the shadows. The Jaguar’s footprints lead to the temples and sacred sites where Human kneels to the One. The Jaguar always appears when it’s Time to follow the footprints toward the East, to the Light of Divine Inspiration. The Jaguar has the heightened Sense to Be Invisible. IX is the symbol of the Divine Feminine, the aspects of Discernment and Compassionate Love. The Divine Masculine is the Sun’s Light that shares the pure Light of Inspiration. The Divine Feminine conceives the Highest Ends of Love as the Meaning and Purpose for the Creation.


Jaguar/IX holds the Consciousness of the Fire that burns in the Heart of every Mother. IX knows the Love of Mother Earth, and sees her as the Source of every Blessing. The Jaguar’s “earth magic” to cross the threshold into the realm of a Divine Sanctuary is Gratitude. The Jaguar guards the 2nd inner room at the threshold of the Holy of Holies at the top of the pyramid. The Jaguar is a symbol of 7, the number that symbolizes Human’s Power to create our own Reality. The Jaguar Spirit is the shaman, the shape-shifter, with the way to see every Time and Place. The Jaguar knows the Dream is Real. The Jaguar can see the Divine Ends of our Dream and will lead us there.

All we have to do is look down to see the Invisible Jaguar footprints at our feet. They will appear as visible when we cross to the other side. As long as they are invisible, we’re know we are exactly where we are meant to be, still guided by the One, leading us to the Highest End. The Jaguar/IX will guide us to the Divine Discernment that our Faith is Real in the realm Above, and Faith is just as good as believing.

IX resides in the North, the direction of Wisdom and the Element of Air. IX can change the Truth of our Spirit. Guided by IX, Spirit can be a “tangible” experience. The Element of Air is Invisible, yet it can change our Life. There are Unseen Forces changing our Life. There are Divine Forces of Love making a difference in our Life that we will NEVER see, and we will Know in the end.

Our LOVE RIPPLES through the Whole. It’s not just a theory of imagination. When Love is Seen and Acknowledged it is always Given Back or Paid Forward. Love is the Cause – the Reason – that will always have that Divine Effect when we KNOW it. One act of kindness leads from one to another. We have no way to know how many times we’ve been “saved” from “injustice” because one Human was kind enough to open the door for another. It is bound to be the Truth in SOME TIme and Place.

The Element of Air is our Common field of thoughts and we are Connected in every Breath. The Creator can speak through the Wind, through the Communion of Sound and Touch. Through the Sacred Breath, the Divine One can share a thought to change our mind.

To all my relations, may we see that we are always guided by the Light. We always know the next Wise thing to do. May we see the Bigger Picture. May we Count our Blessing that never end, AND Remember the Power Unseen directing the Love that calls to us a Divine Inspiration. May we give thanks for the Divine Spirit we were given that burns in our Heart to follow, if only we can let something go.

May we follow the Jaguar’s way of Gratitude and Invisibility. May we put our Full Powers to Create Belonging to the Test. May we claim every step of the way is guided by a Divine Light of Inspiration and the One who knows Our Heart and can share a Divine Reason to Follow.

May we See and Acknowledge the New Beginning, and the chance to set a Tone and Frequency to carry on to an end. May we Honor the Beauty that IS Love all around in EVERY Time and Place, to remember the Beauty will be at the end – and our Eyes will be opened to See the Unseen Truth of Love.

in lak’ech, i am another you

Debra, Jaguar Woman/9 Eagle/MEN

I’m grateful for Beauty and Power Unseen, waiting to be Seen and Known as the Truth about Love.  

The New Moon marks a Time for New Intentions and Aries is the symbol of our Identity. We can offer our Dreams for the Future to the darkness where the Light will Grow.

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

Galactic Tone 9: Patience. The energy of Nine is one of the getting a better perspective of the bigger picture. With the energy of Nine plans or patterns begin to come to completion. Nine requires patience and perseverance that is found in the bigger picture, otherwise there is great suffering from the lack of insight. The completion of cycles of action is all-important to Nine.

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.

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.  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.
