10 Earth/CABAN

Greetings Beloved Kin,

10 Earth/CABAN raises the Intention of Manifestation through an Intention to Claim the Truth written in the Heart. The Cherokee Day Sign is the Heron, a nahaul of perpetual movement and a symbol of the Phoenix that Rises from the ashes of its past.

To manifest the Creation of our Heart’s Desire, we have to make a whole investment of the Heart to stand on our Own Truth. We have to claim the Future Shall Be what the Creator intended to be.

CABAN speaks the Truth through the dynamic illustration of Mother Earth. Earth is the source of everything Human knows, born out on every scale from the micro to the macro.

The glyph illustrates the thoughts that lead to a Divine Discernment of the Truth. The straight line from the East represents our “first light” of knowing, the first thought of objective/linear consciousness to see “what it is.” If we discern the Truth is relevant, that thought turns to our imagination to figure out “what it means.” If we can’t complete the whole circle of Truth, we tend to forget about it and thoughts trail off with out ever reaching the end. The rising circles represent a Divine meaning that lie beyond our Human understanding. To know a Divine Mystery requires a Leap of Faith for Light that is shared by the One Above.


The Creator uses ALL the Elements of Nature to speak to us in an up-close and personal way. If we choose to look and see, we hold the capability to conceive the Truth of the Whole Creation.  The Earth is a reflection of the Creator’s power to draw Order from Chaos, the same way planets and stars were gathered from stardust. Staurolite is a rock with the Power to be changed from the inside out.

The Mayan cosmology holds to a Truth that we complete a lifetime of experience in 52 years of the Solar Calendar. If you’re over 52, count the age of your own new creation. Or, consider “where you are” in the “first creation” that’s still in progress.

Can you relate to Age of your Spiritual Transformation? At 72 Solar Years I feel like my life is just beginning again with the same high hopes and dreams I remember from when I was first 20years old.

The energy of CABAN, OLLIN, and the Heron is a Clarion Call that begins every Migration on Earth. The Heron’s fly to a TIme and Place to meet as One in the Sand Hills of Nebraska. They are on their way now from all directions in the Northern Hemisphere.  (The gathering lies along I-80 Hwy, another “open road” that runs across the State of Nebraska, following its course along the Platte River. The Sand Hill cranes reach their destination in late Spring, Summer, and Early Fall. You can drive for miles and see thousands gathered all along the way. The “great migration” of the Wildebeests “is completed a few months earlier after the beginning of the Gregorian New Year.

ALL living creations were intended to know a path of migration written within. In this round of the Tzolk’in we’re on the move in sync with all the Great Migrations on Earth to SEE the Road to Human’s Destiny is also written in the Heart of every human seed. The Wind of the Creator’s Promise carries us to the Divine End where we inherently want to go.

Hunting is permitted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in nine of the 10 states in the Central Flyway. Although crane hunting is opposed by some people, crane hunting is done on a sustainable basis under a population management plan approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Sport hunting also is justified for maintaining reasonable distributions of sandhill cranes. If concentrations become too high in some areas, crop depredation can occur and risk of disease to cranes increases. Crane hunting is extremely challenging because cranes are very wary and crane meat is considered excellent table fare, probably the best of all migratory game birds. Source

The diagonal cross that is formed as Staurolite illustrates the Cross of Saint Andrew. He is known as the “First Called” and the “First Chosen.” He was the first to follow. He made the First Leap of Faith to stand on the Truth. He was martyred, claiming he was no less worthy than to die on a cross. He became the First to open the way for the Last. Saint Andrew was called by Jesus to be a “fisher of men.” He was the first to leave every worldly thing behind to follow the way.

Andrew is the first Apostle named, and he was a disciple of St. John the Baptist before Jesus’ call. He followed from the “first Light.” A 4th-century account reports his death by crucifixion, and late medieval accretions describe the cross as X-shaped. He is iconographically represented with an X-shaped cross.  Britanica  The “X” on the Flag of Scotland symbolizes Saint Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland.

CABAN is known as Ollin by the Aztec tradition, a Day Sign that simply means “Movement.” Ollin (all in) is a very auspicious for the “active principle” and a very inauspicious day for the “passive principle.” This is NOT a good day to go along with the ways of the world. Ollin calls us to live with all our heart. Ollin is a day of the purified heart, signifying those moments where human beings may perceive what they are becoming. A good day for transmutation, which arrives like an earthquake that leaves in its wake the ruins of rationality, order and the preconceived. Aztec Calendar

At the center of the Ollin symbol is the face of K’inich Ahau ( as named by the Yucatec tradition). K’inich Ahau is the “brightest and first light” of the Sun’s illumination. The fierceness of the face illustrates the Power of the Creator’s Command at the beginning, “This SHALL Be.”

What we’ve focused on as the Dream of our Intention becomes REAL on Tone 10. Tone 10 presents a challenge. To manifest the Dream, we have to claim that the Creator’s Intention is Truth that will stand forever.

The Ascending trecena of the Tzolk’in round is guided by Star/LAMAT, a symbol of Venus, the 2nd Brightest Star, second only to the Sun. Lamat’s totem is the Rabbit, the symbol of “Instant Manifestation” that multiplies the “object of our affection” to abundance. Venus is the Divine-Time-Keeper by the cosmology of the Maya. It’s said that when Venus transits the Sun, every Mayan calendar is in sync for the moment in Time. This round, the Tzolk’in is falling in sync with the Divine Times of Spring and the Signs and Wonders of Life that are marked by the Sacred Sites around the world.

10 Earth/CABAN is a Clarian Call that burns in our Heart. Our Highest Hope is the Dream “to be” that was written within our Seed from the beginning.

There are even greater signs of the “X” that marks the spot in the future. A total solar eclipse will take place at the Moon’s ascending node on Monday, April 8, 2024, visible across North America and dubbed the Great North American Eclipse by some of the media. Wikipedia  It’s path will complete a “Saint Andrew’s Cross” in the Center of the United States, crossing the path of the first of the USA’s Great Eclipse, August 21, 2017.

Date: Monday, April 8, 2024
Location: Earth
Greatest eclipse: 18:18:29
Coordinates: 25°18′N 104°06′W / 25.3°N 104.1°W
Magnitude: 1.0566

I was inspired to learn about Saint Andrew as the patron Saint of Scotland, by the roots of my Ancestors. Saint Jude was the “first light” to “Believe in Miracles.”  There have been 3 miracles in my life since the Full Moon, February 5, 2023. First, I made it out of the bottom of a creekbed where I’d fallen alone hiking in the woods. I was there to leave an offering to Mother Nature. I thought I’d be in senior rehab for 20 days, but within 4 days I was able to come back home and take care of myself. That was a miracle, and it was a miracle again when I was back on my feet 27 days after I fractured my pelvic bone. I wanted something to have and to hold to remember Saint Andrew. I looked but couldn’t find anything that spoke to my heart. On March 14 in sync with the end of the 1st Quarter Virgo Full Moon, , the Staurolite was delivered. It had caught my eye as an “X” that marked a spot, before I thought of St. Andrew.

Staurolite is known as the Fairy Cross, associated by the myth that it was formed from tears the fairies shed when they heard the news of Christ’s death. The cross is a well-formed from cruciform twinned crystals, within its surrounding matrix of silica, commonly as 60° twins, less common as 90° cruciform twins. Silica is 66.6% water g–1 silica gel, the silica gel is considered water-saturated but remains a free-flowing powder. Staurolite’s matrix is highly reflective and sparkles in the Light. It is used in geologic field work to assess the temperature-pressure conditions of a rock’s metamorphic history. Wikipedia and Google.

Look to See the Divine Signs and Synchronicities revealed by Earth in your own Time and Place. Don’t go along with a worldly idea that the Truth is just a coincidence. On 10 Earth/CABAN we can see the Truth that, this Time, something Divine is intended to be.

The Intentions of the First and the Last trecenas of the Tzolk’in round hold the Same Divine Intention. The First trecena is Time ordered to Love our Self, through the Germination of a “next generation” seed of our Self. The 1st Uinal is a legend for time that’s repeated in the 13 uinal, as a Truth we can claim as the Answer to our Prayers. We reach the Haab New Year on 12 Road/EB, the 1st trecena of a New Tzolk’in round, the first cycle of “light” that clarifies everything we long to be. 3 Serpent/CHICCHAN is the 1st day of movement in the 2nd uinal that marks the beginning of the Wayeb that ends on the beginning of the New Haab Year, that will be led by 12 Road/EB (an intention to Understanding to resolve our place in the Universe).

So, is it all just a coincidence? How many more times and places to we need to see to know “what it is” and claim it “means something?”  A Divine Hand that created a Divine Path for us to follow. From the “Dawn of a New Awakening” we’ll be led to an even higher end.  Will we have to “go around again” before we claim a Divine Time when “X” marks the spot?  It’s okay if we do. The Time will come around again on April 8, 2024, in the next Solar Year, when an “X” marks a spot that covers the USA. 13 Earth/CABAN (03/30/2024) will guide us through 2024. The “X” falls on 9 Transformer/CIMI, the Sign of a MAJOR life change on the scale of a “life or death”.

May we Offer a Blessing to Mother Earth, claiming the Truth of her Beauty, and the Truth we were made of her.  She was the First to Hold us in Her Arms. Earth/CABAN is the “identity imprint” that’s established by One that claims us as their own.

Every path of Love is worthy for us to choose. Don’t follow anyone else. Claim the Truth and the Way that is written in YOUR heart. That’s the only way to grow to YOUR OWN highest end. Claim the signs and symbols as the Truth, more than just a happy accident.

in lak’ech, I am another you

10 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)

Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.

Earth/Caban: Keeper of the garden of Earth. Profound synchronistic connections to Earth’s natural cycles and energies provide power of creations and memories of ancient wisdom. Earth persons help dispel bad intentions, habits and ideas. This makes them very good counselors and masters of all arts. Studious and intelligent, Earth persons endeavor to bring a flow of natural order to all aspects of life. Being connected to the dynamic forces of nature, Earth persons need much liberty to facilitate their expression of migration or the sending of long distance communications such as the whales, elephants, birds and many other creatures. Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.

Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI: Sign of movement and perpetual motion, Heron is symbolized by Deneb, located in the Northern Cross beside the Milky Way. “The Northern Cross is the Tree of Life, Beside the Milky Way River & Perched atop is Guwi’ sguwi, the Cherokee Heron Spirit Bird, comparable to the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of the past.
