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

1 Monkey / CHUEN


1 Monkey/CHUEN (B’aatz), Destiny Kin 131
November 10, 2022

Greetings Beloved Kin,

I’ve included the Forecast for this trecena below. But, first, I must digress. 🙂

The Ascension of 13 Dog/OC offered us the Time to see our Self with Higher Consciousness of the  Truth. Every climb we made to reach the Center of the Tzolk’in was carried out as an Intention of our Spirit. Everything we create that holds a Divine Meaning and Purpose started from a Light of Inspiration. Realizing our Life could count for something Divine, the Inner Strength of our Spirit moved the Human Being in a realm below to reach for a Higher End.

The whole process of creating the Beauty of Love was a matter of Spirit… not a matter of Human’s willpower. The Reason we moved was Faith in an Unseen Power and the Promise of Answered Prayers. Human’s logic only moves us to accumulate blessings of physicality – material creations. CHUEN offers the  Consciousness to see that Spirit can guide us in the Highest Way toward everything our Heart Desires.

In 2000 I attended a class for would-be entrepreneurs. The speaker asked the class to write down the most important thing we needed now to get our dreams off the ground. When he called on students to share, most of us listed the same thing – money. That was the first evidence that we didn’t know anything about starting a business. If someone had handed us the cash, the odds were great that it would not move us any closer to the end. The common thought was that if we had the cash, we would figure out how to start spending it. His point was that we had it all backwards, and that the truth was that what we really needed were relationships in mutual agreement of the value we would return to the whole. Through relationships we would start out as good stewards for capital investors, negotiating the “goods and services that money could buy.” A relationship in agreement of a good cause, would manifest the 2’s that are invested as 1 in Divine Trinity.


Ruins at Copan, Kenneth Garrett

We thought we knew everything, sure that money was the only thing holding us back. We had a lot to learn. Learning more from others who already have a business is the “matter” of greatest value, in the Wisdom of the Experience. The best place to start any venture is to acquire all the Truth and Wisdom you can through Right Relationship. I recently heard that one of the best ways to start a business is to volunteer your support for someone else who’s business  carries out a mutual cause. We expand and grow when we learn by experience. Learning what’s needed by another, we can discern the greatest talent and service we have to offer. And, from someone already engaged in the process, we learn what’s most needed by the customers we would intend to serve.

The most successful creations are inspired by necessity. IMIX is the primordial Mother of Creation, holding the “wild ideas” of Innovation. As a witness to any function and form of creation, our most divine thoughts come as “someone should fix this.” That takes a first hand experience to see the Truth. Our Greatest “wild ideas” are the ones that dawn on us as “someone should fix this, and I KNOW HOW.” Those are the Dreams we’ll love the most, and we start out KNOWING we can. We may not know all the details of how. But, when we know we can, WE WILL.

We’re sages and a Divine Creator shares lots of wild ideas to inspire our dreams. IMIX advises us to use good judgement and reason to wait for the Dream we really Love, the one we know “we can and we will,” and our heart will be invested in it from the beginning to the end.

1 IMIX is the Beginning of the Northern Count of the Human calendar, the Tzolk’in round of the Yucatec Tradition. 1 Monkey/CHUEN holds the very same meaning and purpose as a Dawn of Creation, the 1st Day of K’iche tradition in the South, the Calendar of Life (Cholq’ij). They both share the same Destiny Kin numbers, though the Tzolk’in of the North turns clockwise through the directions and the Cholq’ij turns counter-clockwise. If you’ve studied the Mayan calendars the different aspects of one from the other have likely come up as a point of confusion. The names change in a different language. B’aatz is the name of Monkey/CHUEN by the southern tradition.

Elders advised us in the beginning that it’s best to stick to the calendar of your first understanding until you discern the general meaning. When you know One, you’ll also Know the other that shares and equal and opposite perspective.

By the Tzolk’in count, 13 Dog/OC and 1 Monkey/CHUEN mark a zero point of the axis mundi, a vortex at the center, like the Merkaba where the up above spins one direction and the down below spins the other. Dog/OC holds position 10 and Monkey/CHUEN holds position 11, both “Master Numbers” of Manifestation (10) and the Divine Inspiration for our Dreams (11).

Today’s date, November 10, 2022 (11/10/2022) magnifies the Power of our potential for Manifestation (10:10) and the Dawning for a new creation (11:11), the number associated with a Divine Wake-up Call, or a Code of Activation. We’re passing through a Divine Portal as the Dawning of a New Life, raised to maturity by all our Tzolk’in climbs and holding the Consciousness of the Truth of the Power of a Divine Agency that shares our Dreams and will lend a Divine Hand to every one that is offering that could benefit the whole.

Every trecena and every climb begins from a state of inertia. The Divine One Above will get the ball rolling again. On Tone 1 a Source of Divine Genius starts a new conversation, sharing a Bright Idea. It falls in sync with the eclipse of the Moon. It always takes Humans 2 days to see the Truth of Time. Like the Fibonacci sequence, we know a meaning and purpose for today by what we learned yesterday. 1 Monkey/CHUEN marks the Divine Time to see what’s needed by the whole to manifest the creation of Life, Love, and Happiness. That’s our Highest Necessity and the most Common Dream we share.

You can’t buy happiness and the best things in life are free. Those can be the guiding principles and framework for our Highest Dreams. The businesses most likely to succeed offer cheap products, produced at the lowest cost, are in the highest demand by the biggest market of customers. It’s even better if the product is consumable, so customers will have to buy it again – like toothpaste, or even better, water. 🙂  It’s curious how there is at least one valuable benefit to be had from water pollution for those with the cash to distribute the product in mass quantities. Sorry – I’m not a fan of big business right now. My dreams are about helping the small-time crafters, makers of trade and local cottage industry.  (That’s my dream job for retirement beyond the dreams of being an author.) Maybe the 2 are intended to be created as 1.

THE TZOLK’IN FORECAST: The Next 13 Days in a brand new cycle of Light

If you HAD to jump ahead, it’s okay. That’s probably what I’d do too. But, when you have time, at least go back for a speed-read through.

Monkey/CHUEN is the nahaul/essence of a Balanced Heart and Mind. CHUEN has an eye that seeks the Beauty of Truth and Wisdom like the Dog that runs for every opportunity to Love. As the Master of all Arts, CHUEN isn’t satisfied by anything less than a Masterpiece of Love. CHUEN imagines the most beautiful end and sees the Dog’s way of Unconditional Love as it’s subject and model for creation. CHUEN uses its sense of Humor to make its way through the darkness of the Unknown. So are we guided to stand in the West, believing the vision we hold in our mind holds the power to manifest the prize of our Heart’s Desire. The Monkey claims the Creator’s offering of the Great Law of Creation, As Above, So Below.

FYI – The Time is Marked TWICE as 11/10 with the Dog and the Monkey as 10/11… both Master Numbers of Love and Divine Genius.

Blue and Red Day Signs represent cycles of Divine Inspiration. They represent the colors of the living water within and Truth that flows through the heart. CHUEN offers the strength to carry on by a Vision that’s offered from Above. We can apply CHUEN’s gift of Humor to the Truth, and the gift of curiosity as the genius to win a game of Love. CHUEN knows a way to manifest the beauty of the climb as an Alchemist in the laboratory of its imagination. The Creator will share the way to manifest the Light of Love as a game that we can’t lose, using the realm of our imagination where every dream comes True.

From the darkness of the Creative Void, imagine every which way you could stick your Human hand in to draw out the Beauty of your own design. Magical ways can make it fun. Use fairy dust, a magic wand, or any way that feels like fun. Like the mad scientist, know that failures are only experiments that lead to the perfect order of a scientific process and recipe that turns a heart of iron into pure gold.

Magic is possible in the season of Divine Trinity. Remember the Deer’s way to Remember the Supreme Lord of Creation promises to lend a Hand to cover every Human limitation, and call upon a Legion of Light who have seen the ways Below and the Truth of the Promise at the end. We’ll begin in the 7th Uinal, with the Consciousness to “see all that is” and “all that is not” in an objective way. We can’t fail when our Heart is reaching to create “pure love.” 10 Sun/AHAU will offer a Divine Revelation to complete the work of manifestation. In the 8th uinal, we’ll claim the Truth of our Divine Justice.

13 Night/AKBAL is waiting to prove the Truth of Answered Prayers. We’ll Ascend as the Dreamer that believes in the Dream. AKBAL pulls back the veil to reveal the Power that lies within as the Light of a Dream that will forever shine as the Greatest Masterpiece of Creation that was always just a matter of Time.

13 Eagle/MEN is focusing it’s eye on the prize for us to remember that every vision of the Future lies within our grasp. We’ll only have to see a speck of a distinctive color of Love and take the Leap to Fall into the Wind to guided by the Creator’s Truth.

CHUEN is the “Weaver of Time.” Using the vigilant eye and the dedicated path of the Deer, we can train our Heart to see the Beauty every day. We’ll skip over the ups and downs of the darkness and the light until the Wind catches our Wings. Before an Eagle takes flight, it “branches” – jumping up and down in the nest to find a limb that holds fast enough to flap our wings and fly in place. (There are eagle-cams on the Internet where you could see how funny it looks when the Eagle is imagining its first flight.)

Barrel of Monkey Business

NOV 10, 2022 – 1 Monkey/CHUEN – This is the cool day we don’t have to do anything but take in the Creator’s vision for our highest end. Waste as much time as you can, imagining a path that leads to Love, and all the potential twists and turns you might take before you turn the final corner. You’re bound to get a bright idea, and the cool part will be that your greatest dream for creation, isn’t hard at all. In fact “the work” could be more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

NOV 11, 2022 – 2 Road/EB – Tuned in to the Creator’s channel of Love, through the Elements of Earth, we’ll know the Truth of the Promise in a tangible way. The Divine Monkey in us will give Human a REASON to go along with the nonsense that doesn’t make any sense. (Maybe our first pinch of fairy dust will produce some surprising results.) The day is marked by 11:11, so it’s bound to be a wakeup call and a code of activation.

NOV 12, 2022 – 3 Reed/BEN – We’ll be moved to take our first step to begin “the work” of our Highest Creation, guided to begin from an altar where the Light of Love shines down on the 2 sides of our self that kneel before the Master of Creation. A Breath of Life will ignite the Fire in our Blood.

NOV 13, 2022 4 Jaguar/IX – We’ll get the legs to stand in the realm of Spirit, with the wisdom to follow the Jaguar’s invisible footprints to the Holy of Holies. Like magic, we’ll only have to look down to our feet to imagine that as long as the footprints are still invisible, we must be in the perfect time and place. IX will raise our “spider senses” of tingling.

NOV 14, 2022 – 5 Eagle/MEN – We’ll be empowered by a speck of the prize to hone in and gather all our resources to take a Leap toward the end of Love. We’ll KNOW the prize is within our grasp.

NOV 15, 2022 – 6 Wisdom/CIB – We’ll be guided by the Ascended Ones and the Masters of Love to learn the Truth. Life would never be so much fun, without a few spills. We’ll claim the Beauty of an adventure that’s within our power when we apply the Truth that we can’t fail. (One Tone 6 we’ll feel the momentum and learn to go with the flow.)

NOV 16, 2022 – 7 Earth/CABAN – Reaching the peak of our climb, we’ll see the beauty of the playground where all the magic ways are written in every detail, and seen through every color. No matter which way we look, we’ll see the symbols like a secret code for the discernment of the Truth. CABAN will move us to Live with all our Heart.

NOV 17, 2022 – 8 Flint/ETZNAB – Like a bolt out of the blue, a light of Truth will break that sweeps away our last doubt to clear the path through the mind’s eye.

NOV 18, 2022 – 9 Storm/CAUAC – The Creator will offer a blessing of Living Water. Our Heart will be grasped from above to raise our Dream to the Heart of Heaven. We’ll feel like a kid again, believing everything we can imagine is ours to choose. Tone 9 “finishes” the big picture in our mind’s eye.

You’ll have to explore the rest of the Time on your own. It wouldn’t be any fun if you didn’t imagine your Divine Justice for yourself.

Take ALL your Time today just to dream about it. Play hookie from work. Make a show out of sorting the paperclips and heaping a pile on the desk that makes you look like you’re VERY BUSINESS sorting the highest priorities to the top of the pile. Invest your HEART in your OWN Dream. Give yourself permission, because it’s the Divine Meaning and Purpose for the Time.

Remember the Magic of Counting your Blessings, and take some Sacred Breaths to ignite the Blood in your Heart and Mind before you start.

No telling what can happen when we wear our invisible Magic Hat.

love, in lak’ech,


I’m grateful that a Supreme Creator intended our greatest work to be the Best TImes of our Life.

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. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]
