MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
4 Sun / AHAU
Our New World takes on the stability of form as the center of the 4 Directions. Tone 4 relates to the most stable of geometric forms, the cube, which presents the dimensions of height, length, depth and breadth. Tone 4 sets the parameters, rules, and place for the manifestation of a new Intention.
4 Sun/Ahau is revered by the Maya as the day on which the Mayan world was born. Like the Creation Story of the Bible, on the first day “God created the Heavens and the Earth,” and brought them to Life with the Spoken Words, “Let there be Light.”
The parameters of Earth were given as our own Place of Becoming. The illumination of the Sun would stabilize a marriage between Heaven and Earth to support our Life, Happiness, and Illumination.
AHAU is the Lord of the Tzolk’in. Each day we are given heralds new Light from the Sun. Sun/AHAU is the Day Sign of Light that illuminates our highest aspirations. Sun/AHAU opens the connection to the Ancestors, offering Divine Wisdom for our new Spiritual Growth.
4 Sun/AHAU – Global Burner Day: Today is one of 4 Global Burner Days that include 4 Sun/AHAU, 4 Serpent/CHICCHAN, 4 Dog/OC, and 4 Eagle/MEN. These 4 Kin are observed by the Maya with Sacred Fire Ceremony for the Intention of burning off residual energy and restoring Harmony to the Community. Global Burners occur on the 30th day of each Season of the Tzolk’in, 65 days apart. Burners support the Intention of Stability (4) and serve to alleviate imbalance or stress. 4 AHAU completes the 8th Uinal and the Sacred Intention of the Divine Justice of Harmony and Equity.
