THE WAYEB: Forecast for the Near Future

Always Time, D Malmos 12/29/2022

Greetings Beloved Kin,

There are lots of significant Time through March 2023. In the trecena of Eagle/MEN, I’m drawn to look to the future to discern the wisest choices for today. I started from the ends to work back to the beginnings.

Haab Time (by Northern Count):
The Haab is the seasonal vague-year Earth calendar that can also be referred to as solar year. The Haab represents an Intention of planetary influence, matters that we experience on a global scale. There are 19 months of the Haab: 18 months of 20 days (numbered 0-19), and 1 month of 5 days (0-4) called the Wayeb. The Elders describe it as a time to wrap up loose ends from the year before. The Wayeb represents the last 5 days before the Haab New Year that begins on 0 POP (03/31/2023). The current year bearer, 11 Deer/MANIK steps a side at the beginning, and the new year bearer, 12  Road/EB takes over on the New Year. (Instead of a Leap Year, the Haab defines the New Year by a zenithal Sun associated with the region of the count. The Northern Count that’s been generally applied to the Northern Hemisphere is based on the zenithal Sun of the Yucatec region (North).

The Wayeb begins on Haab date, 0 Wayeb’ on March 26, 2023 to March 30, 2023 (ie. New Year’s Eve for the Haab); Souce: Smithsonian “Living MayaTime” Calculator  The Tzolk’in date for this round is 7 Deer/MANIK, which symbolizes the power to create our own reality (7), the ways and the means of the Deer/MANIK who is dedicated to a Mission on behalf of the whole. The Deer/MANIK helps us Remember the Truth of Answered Prayers when we are humbled at an altar. We are Atoned with the Highest Truth through our Offering of Sacred Exchange. The Offering for  our Highest Transformation is the sacrifice of our Ego.  The sacred exchange is realizing higher dreams are coming true, and a Divine Creator loved us any way.


“Burden of Time” by Debra Malmos – The Old Ones say we are Sacred to the Creator as the Ones who must bear the time to know.

We might consider this as the Final Initiation of our Ascension, through one last Offering that applies our New and Higher Consciousness of the Truth. What did we learn? How well can we carry it out? The Wayeb will be Our Turn to take over and “finish” what 11 Deer/MANIK started. Wisdom and Divine Knowledge are the Sacred Exchange for Honoring and Applying the Truth we KNOW. This is Time to “pay forward” for the Divine Agency that will lead us to the Answer to our Prayers. How do we want to see our self? The Creator will Love us just the same, ANY way. It’s a matter of Time, and whether we want to “learn the lessons” we can NOW, so we won’t have to repeat the same mistakes to prove the Wisest Way for our self.

The Tone 4 of Stability is always a good day to consider your personal strategy. We’re the ones that will be left in charge for our self. The Maya observe the 5 days of the Wayeb as time to stay close to home. They avoid travel, and unnecessary unknown territories. They stay busy with “spring cleaning” and only come and go for necessities. They prepare in advance and also check in on the neighbors.

The Haab New Year: March 31, 2023 (0 Pop, Year Bearer 12 Road/EB)
12 Road/EB reflects a year for the Underdog. By the Aztec sign, The Grass (Malinalli, the Truth on a planetary scale will reflect Human’s perennial Spirit (written in our seed). They call it a “good day” for the oppressed, and a “bad day” for the oppressor. 

The “very good news” to go with it is the “First Light” of K’inich Ahau – the “brightest Light of the Sun” that breaks first at the beginning of every cycle. The higher the scale of Time, the brighter the flash of Light. The Aztec Ollin (all-in) is illustrated at the center of the Aztec calendar with the face of K’inich Ahau at the center, and on either side, the claws of a Divine Mother. Together they reflect the powers of the Heart of Sky and Heart of Earth. The fierce face and claws reflect that primal instinct of every Divine parent to command authority and protection over every newborn life. K’inich Ahau is the command “this SHALL be.” The claws of the Mother represent the one that will tear away at the flesh of anything that threatens the life of the ones intended to be.

The Wayeb is the time for Redemption, to Pay Forward an Offering and a Sacrifice on behalf of a “balance due” by our own Divine Intention. The final test is a  personal inventory. Where are we still subject to the rules of our Human emotions? In terms of ritual and sacred ceremony, this is a very good time for sweeping out the house. We can carry out the creation of the experience in ANY realm of Consciousness, any way we choose, to manifest a “symbol” of a conscious experience.

Time is the only consequence. We could leap through now, or repeat the same lessons the next time. Our Highest End for the “seed that’s now” will be the starting place for the “seed that falls close to the tree.” We could start out exceeding our Highest Hopes, when the Sun shares it’s Revelation of Light on everything we’re capable to do.

The 40 days of Lent hold the same Intention on another scale of Time. Feb 22, 2023 through Thu, Apr 6, 2023 are observed as time for penitence and personal sacrifice. Time is a Sacred Offering from the Living. We can pay forward the Blessing of Divine Agency through the Time we invest at an altar with every sacrifice of the Ego that we can bring.

The Ascension of the Tzolk’in calendar, 13 Sun/AHAU, falls on March 19, 2023, (Destiny Kin 260) for the beginning of a New Seed planted on the Spring Equinox, March 20, 2023. The time leading to the Spring Equinox, Easter follows on April 9, 2023, 8 Crocodile/IMIX (falling in the 2nd trecena of the New Tzolk’in round, as the Divine Justice for a Germination of the Higher Seed of our Self. Tone 8 is the Divine Justice for our New Life, in Harmony and Equity for all things we have sacrificed on behalf of the whole.

BEFORE the End of the Tzolk’in, 8 Wind/IK (03/01/2023) will Balance the Scales by the Creator’s Law of Justice. A Day of Purification, clears away the ways of the past. We’re purified from the Holy of Holies from the Gratitude of a Divine Provision for every Human limitation. We will only wish we had offered more in the offering to Pay Forward. That’s how we’ll begin a New Life with a meaning and purpose for an Offering from the beginning.

The Creator’s “final justice” is the Offering for all the climbs we’ve made. On March 14, 2023, 8 Eagle/MEN, we’ll see the future we co-created with the One Above by “living with all our heart.”  The Light will shine on an end in the future that we know SHALL be, beyond our Highest Hopes and Aspirations.


Always Today, we have the Choice to catch the Wind before a Storm and rise to Higher Ground without even flapping our wings. When we ASK for Divine Agency, we give permission and we surrender Human’s Right to Choose. We ALLOW (like we have a choice) for whatever the Creator’s order of Time offers for us to experience in the Here and Now. We can start by looking forward to the end of this 12th uinal of understanding, 6 Sun/AHAU, which reflects Momentum that’s been created by a Hand Above and a Hand Below working together in perfect harmony on behalf of the whole. We don’t ever have to be perfect, if we only Reach for the best we’ve got and pay it forward today.

ALL we ever need to reach for the best we can be is a REASON that’s personal. (We’ll never completely kill the Ego, but with wisdom, we can keep it in check.) The Biggest Influence on our Future is How We Start. Failure is inevitable. It’s Divine when we reach anyway.

It’s not so long to the Wayeb for us to aim for our highest ways and means to the end. Whatever we can pay forward will be a Divine Inheritance claimed at the BEGINNING of Life, for our own Seed that follows. (Plus, we’ll already know, what we have been wishing we “already knew,  then.”)

The Question is what do we Know we have to offer that would be our own best karma to claim at the Dawn of a New Awakening?

The Trecena of Eagle/MEN is a time to keep our chin up and to face down the “X” that marks a spot at the end. We can create the Vision of our Highest Hopes and Aspirations to learn what we’re capable to do. Take each day as it comes. Keep imagining how each step is part of the big picture at the end. Believe in Miracles and Pay it Forward as a leap of Faith.

in lak’ech, I am another you,

Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN

4 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA)

Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.

Flint/ETZNAB: Mirror of reality. As a struck flint, these persons are the divine sparks of intelligence. Flint’s innate abilities are utilized to discriminate emotions from fact. Flint persons stand tireless to protect, defend, or cure others by personal sacrifice. By courageously wielding the sword of truth, falsehoods are cut away. Flints, it was said, can receive information on inter-personal troubles or evil plots of others by reflecting in an obsidian mirror. Their valiant service as warriors of the truth must be impeccable or they will experience sufferings of accidents, misunderstandings and gossip.

Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA: Opener of the Way, a creator, innovator, stretches the mind to outside limits of capabilities. Changes the static to the dynamic.  Brings about change, often through separation and destruction.  Beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash. The transformer brings things to a head and wipes the slate clean.
