Greetings Beloved Kin,

8 Eagle/MEN is the last Holy Day of the Tzolk’in, the Day of Holy Communion. I had a lot of things to pray about today (03/13). All I could do was wholly invest myself in giving thanks for the experience. I was grateful for “All the Saints, Above.” By the Cosmology of the Maya, to speak the words, carry on the traditions, the songs, the dances and the Wisdom of the Grandfathers and Grandmothers was to create a place to share within the consciousness of a Living Human Being. For good measure, call on the Archangels, your Guardian Angel, and the Legion of Light that’s shared “Your hard road.”

The Elders advised to share the Intention from the beginning that Only Divine Spirits, who intend the highest good of the whole are allowed within the our Circle. Give Thanks to the Creator for the Hand of Divine Agency.

Let it go into the Creator’s hands.  Give every Miracle at least 24 hours to come true.

I can see the Light that shines ahead. 8 Eagle/MEN shares the Vision of Our Future, and the Dream that Expresses the Truth of who we are (and succeeding, any way).


At the last quarter of the Full Worm Moon, we’ve taken in the Light with the Vision to see the Truth of a New Seed of our Self.  With Eagle vision, we don’t need to see the hold picture at the end, as long as we Know that through our choices to follow, the Creator is always there sharing the way.

love, in lak’ech, Debra

PS. My day is ending on a happy note. I’m ordering McDonalds, which I never eat with ice cream on the side… via Door Dash, so someone brings it to my door. We should be celebrating “our way” as we are turned through the 4 directions to claim the Truth of Answered Prayers, before the work is “finished” by 13 Sun/AHAU. (Click here for a review of important dates for March from the Tzolk’in, Haab, and Seasonal Calendars.)


March’s full moon is commonly called the Full Worm Moon. This is because of the earthworms that wriggle out of the ground as the earth begins to thaw in March. Here’s a little known fact about March’s full moon: it was called the Worm Moon only by Southern Native American tribes. In fact, there’s no way the Northern tribes would have ever called it the Worm Moon – and the reason why is fascinating.

Essentially, earthworms did not exist in Northern America. It would be literally impossible for Northern tribes to see worms popping up in March. All the earthworms you see in Northern America today are invasive species brought in by colonists. These earthworms were brought over either out of a misguided intent to help fertilize the soil, or as an accident along with transported plants or the soil used for ballast in ships. Little did the colonists know that during the last ice age, glaciers had spread so far across Canada and the northern parts of the United States that all earthworms had been completely wiped out.

When the deep ice melted 12,000 years ago, the native forests in those areas grew back and adapted to the loss of earthworms. The growth of these forests became dependent on a layer of duff, which is a compost layer comprised of decomposing leaves and other rotting organic matter. If you ever visit one of these native forests, you will be asked to clean your shoes and make sure it’s free of earthworm eggs. That’s because while it’s normally harmless everywhere else, earthworms will aggressively destroy the native forest’s duff layer by eating right through it.

This is why in Northern American tribes such as the Shawnee tribe, the Worm Moon is called the Sap Moon instead, as a reminder for the tribes that they can begin tapping maple syrup. In general, March’s full moon is known as a herald for the beginning of spring and new agricultural cycles. The Anglo-Saxons even used the Worm Moon as a way to predict the state of their crops. They called it the Storm Moon if it was stormy, which was a sign that their crops would fail. But if it was dry, they called it the Rugged Moon, an indication of a bounteous harvest.

One of its other names is the Chaste Moon, symbolizing the purity of early spring. The Pueblo tribe named it the Moon When the Leaves Break Forth, while in Shoshone culture it was known as the Warming Moon. Sometimes it is called the Crow Moon, after the crows and other birds that appear as winter draws to a close. Other times, it’s called the Crust Moon, because of the snow that becomes crusty when it thaws in the sun and freezes in the moonlight.

In India, March’s full moon is also seen as a symbol of the arrival of spring, and coincides with the festival of Holi. This is a riotous party where Indian communities all around the world engage in a huge water fight. Everyone goes out into the streets and sprays each other with colored water and powders, singing and dancing with strangers and loved ones alike. Playing and feasting together is a chance for you to repair relationships that have gone bad, reaffirming your existing social bonds as you move forward together into the new year.

Beginning March 26, 11 Deer/MANIK moves on, and we’re in charge until 12 Road/EB takes its place at Haab New Year, March 31, 2023. 

A New Seed of our self knows we can Ask to receive. If it’s rainy where you live, give thanks for the Miracle that proves a Divine Creator always has the last word, and we will reap a Harvest of Dreams beyond our imagination.


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

Galactic Tone 7: Reflective. Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not. Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of Divine Will. With a keen sense of ethics, Seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.

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.

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.
