2 Earth/CABAN (Cherokee, Heron/GUWI’SGUWI)
2 Earth Caban
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Earth/Caban: 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, of perpetual motion, recycling, regeneration; environmentalists fighting for the underdog. Heron is mentally alert, rational, yet opinionated; has a great faith in people and in the divine plan, holding the magic of ministry, medicine, marketing and matchmaking; healing abilities, especially with crystals; negotiation and mediation energy. 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 Egyptian Phoenix. One Myth has it that a Beautiful Young Maiden (the Heron Spirit Bird) fell from the Tree of Life in the Sky Vault, & Found no Place to Land on the Primordial Sea. Turtle came to the Surface of the Water & gave her a Place to Land. She nested & Laid her Cosmic Egg, From which came all Life on Earth.” (Cherokee Astrology: Animal, Medicine in the Stars, Raven Hail)
Choosing our Dream
At Tone 2, we can consider the idea or intention we would give our attention to during this trecena. Wisdom/CIB guides us as the keepers of ancient wisdom. Given access to the knowledge of all time, where would you seek to find greater understanding? Would you even know what to ask? Our best question may be “what would YOU have me know?”
Earth/CABAN brings all the power of the dynamic forces of nature. Earth has the power to make all things new. CIB knows the changes that would best serve us, what we are capable of, and what we are ready to learn. As we are prepared to make choices, help us to be open to the new possibilities we may yet have the vision to see.
As student, our job is to be present and teachable.
To all my relations, from the womb of all creation may we be born as something new. May I be open to a new understanding so that I may seek my highest calling.
In lak’ech, I am another you

As we are beginning a new 13-day cycle, I invite you to join in the journey. In addition to the inspiration of the day, visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide where I will be sharing the practical ways to follow the calendar for daily guidance. You can start by finding your own Day Sign. There are several calculators on my Tzolkin page. Your personal Day Sign reflects your life purpose and those gifts that the calendar would serve to empower. I’m here to help and to answer any questions I can and share additional resources.
