Greetings Beloved Kin,

8 Star/LAMAT

Star/LAMAT is a symbol of Venus, the brightest heavenly object 2nd to the Sun. LAMAT’s totem is the Rabbit, a cauldron of Creation that reflects a power of “Instant Manifestation.” On the Creator’s scale of Time the Creation was manifested in the Moment the Truth was spoken.

Venus is the Divine-Time Keeper of the Maya. When Venus transits the Sun, all the vague-time is resolved in the moment when all the Mayan calendars are synchronized into Perfect Time.

LAMAT’s totem is the Rabbit, marking a “lucky day” when what we focus on as the “object of our affection” will be multiplied to abundance. Today is double-lucky in the Chinese Year of the Rabbit, and on a Day marked by the Master Number 88, represented by the 8th Tone and the 8th Position of LAMAT.

Tone 8 marks the Zenith Hour of Light and holds the Intention of Divine Justice. WAXAJQIB (wah shah keeb), “Eight” holds the meaning of “pure spirit.” The power of the symbol 8 is magnified by repetition. Venus is the symbol of the Scion, the first descendant of the Creator. The Maya related Venus to Human as it shares the same 260 day cycles in the times it appears as the Morning and the Evening Star. Venus is rising in the darkness in March 2023, marked by a conjunction with the Moon and leading to a parade of planets that will cross the sky together on March 28, 2023.

Venus is a Sign of Blessings that will be multiplied to abundance, if we follow the way that we learned from 11 Deer/MANIK, dedicating our Time to a Mission of Love and engaging the Vigilant Eye of the Deer that Looks to See.


Parade of Planets, March 2023 – Source: StarWalk NewsOn the evening of March 28, five planets – Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Uranus, and Mars – will gather within a small 50-degree sky sector. Start your observations soon after sunset. Near the horizon, you’ll see two bright objects – Jupiter (magnitude -2.1) and Mercury (magnitude -1.3). They will be located in the constellation Pisces, separated by about a degree. Higher up in the sky, Venus will shine brightly with a magnitude of -4.0 in the constellation Aries. If you use a pair of strong binoculars, you’ll see Uranus nearby, shining with a magnitude of 5.8 at a distance of about 2° from Venus. Mars (magnitude 0,9) will join the alignment higher in the sky, near the first quarter Moon in the constellation Gemini.

This is the 2nd time around for the Parade of Planets that occurred on the last 8 Star/LAMAT, July 20, 2022. The last time Venus led the parade as the Morning Star. This time, a Light of Beauty and Love is shining for us as we carry the Light through the darkness of the Wayeb, the last 5-day month of the Haab (by Northern Count) that followed the Year of 11 Deer/MANIK. The New Year Dawns under the guidance of 12 Road/EB (aka Human’s Road to Destiny, guided by the Intention of Understanding (12).

The Light is beginning to dawn on us. Every Dream that’s guided by an Intention of Love and Beauty is multiplied to abundance under the 8, a symbol of Abundance to Infinity. Following the Golden Rule with the Intention of Tolerance, Understanding, and Forgiveness is worth the cost of our Human Ego, when we KNOW the end will be the Answer to our Dreams. The moon is a symbol of our emotions. With the Death of our Ego, we’ll engage the Divine Meaning and Purpose of our FEELINGS, the means and the way to know the Truth and the Divine Reason we were created to be.

To engage the Magic to Multiply, we can use the “earth magic” of the Jaguar, applying the Vigilant Eye of the Deer to Count our Blessings as we look to see and follow the Brightest Star, the Sun, as it crosses the sky. Tone 8 marks the zenith hour of consciousness in the hour that the Sun shines directly Above. Tone 8 is the Holy Day of every 13 days cycle of Human’s Creation in the Light. The Truth stands on every scale of Time. This is a Divine Time for us to know.

The glyph for LAMAT that looks like a Star also represents the shape of the place on Earth where the Seed of Human was intended to grow. When the Seed of Corn was planted, the Maya used an implement that was drawn North/South, East/West. Space was given for the roots to grow. The glyph marks the 4 directions that Human was intended to Grow to reach our Highest Consciousness to know the Mysteries of Life. East is the Direction of Divine Inspiration, where the Sun Rises. South is the direction of the “down-below” where we draw Truth and Wisdom from our Relationships with one another and from the Natural World. West is the direction of the Sunset, our Unknown Future. North is the Direction of Wisdom and Understanding, a Gift from Above, beyond the heavenly vault of the stars.

LAMAT marks the South. Venus shines the Light for the Intention of Right Relationship. We can create “heaven on earth” when we hold fast to the Truth of a Divine Creator, and claim our own Source of Life as the One and Only Highest Object of our Affection. When the Truth is revealed that the Road to our Destiny ends in Beauty, we’ll Feel the Reason to follow the Highest Meaning and Purpose as a Mission to Love.

This is a day to think about “what you want” and NOT “what you don’t want.” We learned the way to hold vigilant consciousness of the Highest Truth Above. Don’t worry if you forget. When you Remember, like the Rabbit, you’ll be stopped in your tracks. Remember, Human’s way of Illumination is like the Serpent that moves back and forth to go forward. We can count our blessings every time we remember, and give the credit to the Light of the Highest One that guides our way.

Imagine what all our tomorrows will bring when we are willing to set our Ego aside to manifest our Highest Dreams of Love. The Time is waiting in the future of the Haab New Year, as a new beginning that will begin the journey of an experience on a planetary scale for all of us to know. Divine Justice is the Creator’s intention to manifest the Creation of Beauty in Harmony and Equity with the Whole. All we have to do is to Choose to Stand on the Truth that was written in our heart, remembering that we are the Creation of the Greatest “I Am.”

Divine Creator,

Thank you for this Day and for every Sacred Day that leads us to our Divine Time and Place. Help us to carry out our Highest Intention to Love you above everything. Thank you for the Beauty that was given to conceive the Truth in every direction that we Look to See. May we speak the Truth that Earth is the Heaven beneath our feet, when we see the Truth that was hidden as a mystery by our shadow, and revealed when you offer Your Light from Above. Help us carry out the Mission in Harmony and Equity in behalf of the whole. 


This is a Divine Time to wish on a star.

love, in lak’ech,

Genesis 1:14-19And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.

8 Star/LAMAT, Cherokee Rabbit/NOQUI’SEGWA

Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below.” From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “Neat Freaks”.

Star/LAMAT: Star energy is multiplication of all things to abundance. Star has been associated with the fertility of rabbits for its ability to multiply. As each sun in the sky, Star persons shine equally in all directions. This natural tendency of harmony and balance can become compulsion, motivating Star to be too agreeable and too generous, rejected gifts cause fear and resentment. When a Star believes it has been given too much, they are weakened or may even collapse. In this “Black Hole” state, Stars are prone to verbal jousting and arguing to force their point of view on everyone.

Cherokee, Rabbit/NOQUI’SEGWA: Symbol-Venus, The Morning Star cycle of 260 days and Evening Star cycle of another 260 days, inspired the 13 numbers, 20 Day sign Sacred Calendar. Rabbit is the Trickster of Cherokee culture, matching the Coyote in other nations. The personification of Light and New Life, Sunrise, the scion (a first-generation descendant) of the Moon-Father of earth children, the Rabbit is fertility, be fruitful and multiply. Represents softness, gentleness and vulnerability. LAMAT– Totem Rabbit. Energies of re-birth, regeneration, ripening, harvest and abundance. This person is overflowing with love energy in all areas of life. Spiritual growth is natural and with ease due to the unconditional love energy that flows.
