9 Earth / CABAN – A Divine Atonement: Day 9 of 13


Greetings Kin,

9 Earth / CABAN

Tone 9 is the Peak Tone that Completes a Transformation. Tone 9 offers the Intention of Patience to see the Bigger Picture.

The completion of cycles is all important to the Number 9. Number 8 is the Solar Number. Number 9 (BELEJEB’) is the Moon’s number, the Discernment of a Spiritual Cause and Effect.

Number 9 comes with a warning that there could be great suffering to bear without the application of Patience.

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth as a heavenly body in perpetual motion. CABAN is known as N’oj by the K’iche tradition, representing the Source of all Human Knowledge. The glyph illustrates the 3 faculties of Discernment, the linear thoughts of reason, the unbridled form of the imagination, and the elevating thoughts of Divine Consciousness.

Noj is revered as a Sacred Word, meaning all the capabilities of the Human Mind. Noj is the Force that moves us by Divine Intention to the Choices that forever mark us as Divine.

Our faculties of Divine Wisdom are the effect when we draw equally from all 3 for the discernment of Divine Truth. Transforming to our Higher State of Consciousness requires the Patience to insure we’ve turned to each of our faculties of Discernment. The Whole Truth will be the Cause and Effect when we engage the Divine Trinity of Human Consciousness in Unity with a Higher Intention.

2 Earth / CABAN – Inheritance of Wisdom: Day 2 of 13


2 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 2 holds the Intention of Duality. We are separated from the One to experience our own Perspective of Consciousness. Experiencing the difference between one thing and another is the energy of Tone 2. We consider the journey that leads from one thing to another. We define the Divine possibilities and our Human limitations to make a Choice, “To Be or Not To Be.”

Every Dream and every Creation relies on our Passion to carry it out. Passion will empower our willingness to enter the dark, when we discern our own Divine Reason to make the journey.

Earth/CABAN is the symbol of Mother Earth as the source of all nourishment to the mind and body. The K’iche Day Sign N’oj, symbolizes a Trinity of Consciousness, the Power of Knowing that is Divine.

CABAN resides in the East, the direction of Life, Light, and Happiness. Holding the Element of Fire, CABAN holds the power of transmutation. We are changed by Fire. Fire burns as the Passion in our heart to discern a Divine Meaning and Purpose to lead our journey.

The Aztec Day Sign, the Ollin (All-in) is marked as the Day when we see what we are becoming. Holding the meaning of Movement, Ollin motivates us to “move with all our heart.”

8 Earth / CABAN – A Manifestation of Love: Day 8 of 13


8 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 8 is the zenith hour of Light that begins a Transformation. 8 is the Number of “pure spirit,” and a symbol of Abundance and Infinity.

Every Transformation begins from the Higher Ground of the last. Tone 8 is the Number of Divine Justice. It brings the Divine Justice of Wisdom from the trecena before.

We were Inspired by the Earth/CABAN trecena to jump in for Dog’s Adventure of Love on Earth. Mother Earth’s Divine Justice is to See the Wisdom our Experience prove the Truth she shared. She guided us to Live with ALL our Heart and Moving on to the Next Opportunity for Love. She promised a Divine Provision for what we might have to let go. She gave us the Freedom to bury a treasure for the future, so we could choose every happiness that is Right Now.

On Tone 8, we’re changed because we See it with Our Heart. Through the Intention of Divine Will we let go of Human Love and turned our eyes to Divine Love. For a Divine Reason we could let go. Divine Will means the Highest Love is what the Creator would Love for its Only Child, the Scion. Human was given every possible way to Know that Love and Happiness was as easy as a Choice. Through a Divine Relationship, we could Create the Life that would be our Highest Happiness.

6 Wind / IK – Dawn of Our Own Creation: Day 6 of 13


6 Wind / IK

Greetings Kin,

Tone 6 extends the Force of Momentum. Tones 6, 7, 8, and 9 are energies of Peak Performance. On Tone 6 we fall into a Rhythm and Pattern of Movement in Harmony with Divine Will.

The Earth/CABAN trecena is a cycle of “Light” for the purpose to Inspire a Dream of the Vision of Mother Earth our Seed would Know in the future. The 6, 7, 8, 9 uinals are the Peak Cycles of the Tzolk’in harvest. The Season is the Divine Intervention of Reproduction and Creation. Reproduction is an integral part of Human, Divine by Design. Tones 6 and 7, are the Peak Energies of Human performance. Tones 8 and 9, are the Peak Energies of a Divine performance.

On Tone 6 we Know a way of Creation. We Know how to use it. We see where the pattern could take us. On Tone 6 of the Earth/CABAN trecena, this is the Day we Take Off. We can see a pattern thoughts that carried our Consciousness to another place. The small, incremental changes may be the most important. We were meant to experience how far our meager steps can carry us when we are Flowing with the Beauty of Spirit.

Wind/IK is the Breath of Life and the Breath of Spirit. We are dreaming the birth of the New Seed into the world. We see it in all its stages. In the budding, we are showing. We Know something is on the way. Wind/IK holds the Force of Dissemination. IK carried the Creator’s Breath of Creation and holds the Sovereignty of Life.

Signs from Mother Earth

Greetings Kin,

This Sign appeared while I was stacked up in Seattle traffic on the way to my class.

It was overcast and rainy and early accidents had the drive down to stops and starts. I wasn’t afraid of driving, but if I’d ever get there. I was deciding it didn’t matter when I looked up and saw what the Raccoon was saying, right in front of me.

A trickster Raccoon Mother had to nose in here to coax a smile.

love, in lak’ech, Debra


Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Earth/CABAN trecena.


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

Galactic Tone 1:  Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

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 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.

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.

How is your Spiritual path today?

I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, your Day Sign, or just say Hi!

1 Earth / CABAN – Dawn of Our Own Creation: Day 1 of 13

1 Earth / CABAN


The next 13 days…

Greetings Kin,

We were given the Divine Thoughts to imagine everything we were meant To Be. Our Ascension from the Seed/KAN trecena was the application of what Monkey/CHUEN inspired us to do. We were weaving the Tapestry of our Own Divine Symbols from the Wisdom of the Experience.

A new Fire burns for a Divine Manifestation. Earth/CABAN is a Day Sign of Fire and Light. Residing in the East, our eyes are turned to a Sunrise that will Illuminate all the Beauty of Mother Earth. It will be the Sun that Rises for that very Divine Meaning and Purpose.

On a journey with Earth/CABAN we’ll be Inspired to see The Creation. Through Mother Earth we’ll see what we’re made of.

Earth/CABAN is known as N’oj in the K’iche tradition. Mother Earth is the source of all Human knowledge. N’oj illustrates how Knowledge is conceived. The N’oj glyph emphasizes 3 different things. Each looks very much like the sperm. Each one symbolizes the different conceptions of Human knowledge… ways of Consciousness. We conceive thoughts through the Human mind, the imagination, and the Inspiration of Divine Spirit. A symbol is understood through the eye of the beholder. Through Divine thoughts, we command the Conscious and the Unconscious Mind for Creation. Mother Earth is the symbol of the Egg where the Circle of Life and the Whole of all our Consciousness would be born.

CABAN is about Movement that Creates Time. We create all the Times of our Life through movement and communication. Through our Movement we will “See what we are Becoming” and the “Gift OUR Seed” brings to the world. The Aztec description associated with the Ollin (all-in) symbol at the center of their calendar, marks a journey with CABAN as the Time and Place where we See our New Self. Ollin means simply, Movement. The Symbols of Earth/CABAN, N’OJ, and OLLIN will inspire us to Move into the world With All Our Heart. A journey of Spirit will be the Offering at our Ascension – 13 Offering/MULUC.

4 SUN/AHAU: Global Burner Day
Burner Days mark an Energetic Release. The Mayan priest carry out the Sacred Fire Ceremonies for the Community. The CHICCHAN of our Love has been Divinely backed into its corner for a New Release of Passionate Love. There is one Global Burner in each Season of the Tzolk’in. This a Global Burner with many Signs and Symbols. The Full Moon the Day Before also forecasts a day of Release, and given a Name of Beauty, “the Full Flower Moon.” A Dream of our Spirit can be seen as something with dimension on Tone 4 that stabilizes like the cube. We will see the Flowers that our Seed will create. 4 Sun/AHAU is Humanity’s Mayan birthday, the Destiny Named for the day Human Consciousness is delivered on Earth.

9TH UINAL: On 5 Crocodile/IMIX we enter the 9th uinal. Nine is all about completing new knowledge by remembering the Patience to look from a broader perspective. From a Divine Perspective we can complete a Truth for the Whole. Crocodile/IMIX is the Primordial Mother at the Beginning of all things. In the 9th uinal she will start us out with an Empowerment (5) of Divine Thought. The 9th uinal completes the buds on the tree that prove to Human eyes that in the Season of Harvest, we will produce the Fruit of our Spirit.

On 13 Offering/MULUC we will Ascend through an Atonement of Divine Consciousness. Following a journey to a Divine Vision of Mother Earth, we’ll receive the Passion to Jump in and Save all she was meant to be. Our Ascension will prepare us for a Journey as the Dog… the Symbol of Unconditional Love that every Human sees.

The Cherokee Day Sign is the Heron, the nuhaul of perpetual migration. They are symbols of the Phoenix that rises from the ashes of its past. One of the phenomenons of their migration is the “Sandhill Crane Migration” in Nebraska. Somehow, 500,000 cranes coming from different places all over the globe, end up at the same Time and Place. In our Finest Hour we will be Alone on a journey. Where we end up we will Know we were DIVINELY gathered back into ONE.

7 Earth / CABAN – Dawn of Creation: Day 7 of 13


7 Earth / CABAN

Greetings Kin,

Tone 7 holds the Intention of Balance between the Above and the Below. “As Above, So Below” is the Great Law of Creation. What is created in one realm of Consciousness is balanced in all others. On Tone 7 our Human progress is measured for an application of Divine Justice.

Our accomplishment won’t be measured by distance we traveled or the money we’ve earned. The Spirit Moves by Intention. Our progress is measured by the Reason. No one who ever tried and failed is a “failure” in the Creator’s eyes.

Earth/CABAN is a Day Sign of Mother Earth, the source of all Human Knowledge. She symbolizes movement that carries on. A wise Mother performs her duty to keep moving us to a new Time and Place. Earth’s ability to carry on is the Balance that maintains our stability and equilibrium. Balance is a Core Issue found at the Center of all things.

Human’s axis for Balance is maintained by Intention. We are Divinely Balanced when we do what we do for the Reason of Love. We are balanced by a Divine Fire within. Earth/CABAN moves us to yield to the Fire that can change us through the Balancing of Spirit.

Earth/CABAN resides in the East, the Place of the Sunrise and a New Beginning. CABAN holds the Element of Fire. So is Mother Earth moved by the Fire she holds within. At her heart, like Human’s heart, liquid iron fulfills its dynamic purpose. The movement of molten iron is dynamically charged with electromagnetic energy. We are attracted by a Power of Love. We are bound to each other. Magnets are only kept apart by resistance or are turned away from one another. We have to Choose to separate our self or Choose to turn away to ever be separated from our attraction to the Creator’s Love.
