11 Road/EB – Clearing the Way

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK

11 Road/EB (Cherokee, Rattlesnake Tooth/KANU’GA)

11 Road/EB

11 Road/EB

Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.

Road/EB: The bearer of time and conductor of destiny; also known as Human; these persons open the road and guide to the future groups, communities and individuals alike. Likable, obedient, dedicated hard workers and organizers, Road persons are fortunate in business and travel. Many become care takers of the poor, sick, or old people, where they may make personal sacrifices. Road is sometimes referred to as the sign of grass, which is the most bountiful of all life forms, but is also the most humble. Road persons are affectionate and emphatic; they are easily hurt but slow to anger. Holding in of negative emotions and unexpressed resentment can lead to illness, a poisoned opinion of others and a false bravado for this sun sign.

Cherokee, Rattlesnake Tooth/KANU’GA: Symbolized by a rainbow, the delicate display of electromagnetic rays of the SUN. Rattlesnake Tooth is the Natal day sign of Medicine, the Shaman, the Priest, the Healer, and the Sorcerer.  Guardian of the Way, Keeper of the Keys of the secret Kingdom.

Daykeeper’s Journal:

Clearing the Way

Road/EB relates to our earthly walk and reminds us that our destiny depends on the paths we choose. Bringing any new idea or creation to life requires us to make changes. As we are changed, we take on new perspectives that lead us in new directions.

Dealing with change can be uncomfortable, stressful or even scary at times as we must travel through new and uncharted territory. Integrating change requires a reallocation of our time and attention. Galactic Tone 11 helps us to make the necessary adjustments so that there is room in our lives for change to be established.

The Wind/IK trecena shows us that the vital energy needed to fulfill our life’s purpose is found when we are grounded in our relationship with Divine Spirit. We have learned that by surrendering all our plans and intentions to Divine Will, we become empowered co-creators. When we are as one with the Creator, each step we take serves a divine purpose. What we may have seen as our failures can now be seen as divine guidance. And, above all, we have been shown we are loved unconditionally.

To all my relations, may we always remember that we have nothing to fear when we are surrendered to the will of the Divine Spirit. May we see that above all, God would have us know we are loved and that a way ahead is always prepared for us when we choose the path of beauty.

10 Monkey/CHUEN – Manifesting Beauty

THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK

10 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, Raccoon/ KVH’LI)

10 Monkey/CHUEN

10 Monkey/CHUEN

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.

Monkey/CHUEN: Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.

Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoons are full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy; magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart. Totem Monkey: The energy of humor, the artisan and craftsmen of the Universal energy. Helps us to lighten up in all situations, was the glyph of the 4th world creation in conjunction with OC so that we would have humor in all of our endeavors. The humor, when added to a serious situation will allow you to have a less destructive pattern of resolution. This is the “Cosmic joke” energy to help us transcend the duality. A life path of comedian, actor, artist, artisan writer, satirist, any path is enhanced with this humor in conjunction with the creative energies.

Daykeeper’s Journal:

Manifesting Beauty

Galactic Tone 10 relates to the materialization of substance, expression, beauty, and potential realized. At Tone 10 we shift from outward experiences to inner reflection. Tone 10 has been defined as “the frequency that allows us to tune in to beauty of all kinds.” Tone 10 asks us to assess what we have created.

As Master of all Arts, Chuen reveals the beauty of EVERY THING. Both dark and light are necessary values for contrast. Just as beauty is defined in the eyes of the beholder, we must make our personal assessment outside the influence of limiting world opinions. Tone 10 also cautions us to be careful in our judgement, for we will manifest what we believe is true.

Both Chuen and Raccoon are creative, charming, and fun loving. Approaching life as a game full of fun and adventure, we too, can find the beauty in every experience.

To all my relations, may we be filled with joy and gratitude as we look upon the BEAUTY we have created. May we see the beauty in the process that ever draws us closer to the Divine Spirit.

12 Deer/MANIK – Power of Gentleness

12 Deer (Hand)/MANIK, (Cherokee Deer Ahwu’sdi)

12 Deer/MANIK

12 Deer/MANIK

Galactic Tone 12: Twelve is a gift of great capacity of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.

Deer/MANIK (Hand): Deer are spirit tools. Silence itself is a spiritual experience for Deer. For Deer life is a pilgrimage. Deer are dominant persons who defend the people and will make sacrifices for others. The spirit of Deer upholds the pillars of the four directions. With the power inherent in the number four, Deer pushes away bad influences or negative energies. Skill and quality of work are very important to Deer. They are presented with tools for every task in life and it is with these that they are able to rise above limitations. Deer has a habit of keeping every tool it has ever used. This leads to clutter and indecision, loss and procrastination. When confronted with promises not kept, Deer becomes stubborn, manipulative and evasive.

Cherokee, Deer/Ahwu’sdi: Symbolized by Constellation Galagina, the Stag, known as Taurus, the Bull. It does not include the Pleiades and Hyades clusters which in Cherokee are viewed as separate. To feed, gatherers of food and supplies, they enjoy rituals, ceremonials, feasts, the souls of hospitality, sociability. Freedom versus security issues often inspire leadership and unique solutions.  Combined with artistic and inspiring energies in harmony with lunar cycles, they nourish the clans. Totem-Deer:  A priest or shaman, a powerful person in general, to overwhelm an individual with one’s personal power, divination; inclined to become a teacher, healer, guru, civic leader, or politician.  Ability to create harmonic resonance.

See the 13-Day Trecena Guide if you’re following along with the trecena.

Daykeeper’s Journal:

Power of Gentleness

Galactic Tone 12 is the energy of bringing things together. Tone 12 can help us draw meaning from our new wisdom, and to learn how we may best apply what we have learned. Deer is the Day Sign of Spirit Tools.

Deer brings the energy of a powerful gentleness. Gentleness means that we are ‘free from harshness, sternness, or violence.” Though at first we may not equate gentleness with strength, our world shows clear evidence that gentleness can accomplish far more than the power of brute force. Deer brings the Spirit Tools that offer us the ability to move through life’s obstacles with grace.

Gentleness is not the same as weakness, but the silent authority of quietly standing in our own Truth. When we are guided by Love, we can become influencers through the law of attraction. We can become a living demonstration of the power of Love.

As Galactic Tone 12 calls us to reflection, Deer brings the sensitivity and intuition to draw meaning and purpose from the new Truths unfolding.

To all my relations, may I experience the silent power of the Deer. May I be unwavering in my own Truth and extend to others the Sacred Right to make their own choices. May I allow my own daily walk to serve as a demonstration of higher Truth and Love that will serve on its own as a guiding light for others.

10 Serpent/CHICCHAN – Manifesting Truth

10 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI VK)

10 Serpent/CHICCHAN

10 Serpent/CHICCHAN

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.

Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.

Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI VK: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.

Daykeeper’s Journal:

Manifesting Truth

We have been traveling the hard road of life. This is the road we ALL must travel and it is the source of ancient wisdom. New Truths challenge us to look at ourselves in a new light. As we have been guided by Wisdom/CIB, we gained the courage to look at ourselves.

Our journey through the trecena of Wisdom/CIB has guided us to our highest teaching. On Earth, Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge.  Tone 10 of manifestation signals that this cycle of education is completed – this is the day of our initiation. Now is the time to take stock in ourselves. Serpent/CHICCHAN holds magical powers and is known as creature that has an intuitive knowing; we are gifted with new enlightenment. Like graduating seniors, we are armed with a new vision of our potential and the new opportunities that have been opened to us.

At Galactic Tone 10 of Manifestation, what we have focused on now becomes real. We can see how new Truth has changed us. As we have seen the parts of ourselves that don’t serve us, we also see all we are capable of and all we are meant to be.

This is a time of celebration and gratitude.

To all my relations, may we give thanks to the Grandfathers and Grandmothers – the ancients who have walked the same hard road and have come forward to share their Truth. May we remember we were encoded with greatness as the Divine Spark of the Creator. May we celebrate the results of our hard work and honor those who have guided us.

5 Sun/AHAU – Day of Enlightenment

5 Sun/AHAU (Cherokee, Flower/GUN’TSI EK)

5 Sun/AHAU

5 Sun/AHAU

Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural networkers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.

Sun/AHAU: Day of the ancestors and connection to their guidance. The divine face of the sun – lord, musician, singer, dancer, and marksman. Suns are artistic, heroic athletes, visionaries with wise judgment who lead and defend the people. So much is expected from themselves and by other people that unfulfilled expectations are a certainty. An accumulation of these disappointments may lead Sun to evade responsibilities, not accept corrections and even build resentment and disdain towards others. Suns should simplify their lives to be able to rise and shine with unconditional love once again.

Cherokee, Flower/GUN’TSI EK: Symbol is the Sun, place of abode of Great Spirit. The Sun creates, nurtures, and is the super communicator, the way station that relays messages and energy from other stars in the galaxy; provides energy for channeling information from the Ancestors; speaking the Living Language of Light, which ignites the consciousness in others. Gold is the color of courage and opportunity of wealth. Creative arts, master craftsman expressing divinity and wisdom through their creations. The face of the flower follows the Sun gathering the fire of creativity, illuminating harmony and balance, resonating peace and continuity within the human spirit. This is the Sign of the Chalice of the Infinite, Caldron of Creation.

See the 13-Day Trecena Guide if you’re following along with the trecena.

Day of Enlightenment

Sun/Ahau is considered a very sacred day in the Maya culture. It is a day for celebration and remembrance of the Ancestors.

As our source of light, Sun/AHAU illuminates the path to our goals and aspirations. Through the Sun we are given the gift of enlightenment. We can make a new start as we are made able to see new possibilities.

Both CIB and AHAU are Day Signs of completion. Their purpose is to make us whole. On Galactic Tone 5 we stand in the light of Sun/AHAU, our hero and protector, who brings us to a new awakening.

The time has come to celebrate and to be renewed through the light of love.

To all my relations, may we be ever grateful for the gifts of light and life from the Creator. May we remember our Ancestors as the ones who have walked this way before. May we see ourselves through the eyes of the Creator to love and accept ourselves exactly where we are.

4 Storm/CAUAC – Regeneration

4 Storm/CAUAC  (Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)

4 Storm/CAUAC

4 Storm/CAUAC

Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.

Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.

Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Redbird’s symbol is Alcyone of the Pleiades Star in constellation Taurus.  Alcyone is the Central Sun of the Universe, heart of heaven. Lightning is the visible evidence of the presence of Redbird Spirit in the Sky, daughter of the Sun Spirit, sign of Fire, Sun’s alter ego on Earth. Redbird is a feminine sign; the hand that rocks the cradle. The symbol of nurturing, the lightning nurtures and energizes, with energy for zest, curiosity, imagination, and ideas. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground.

See the 13-Day Trecena Guide if you’re following along with the trecena.

Regeneration

On the stabilizing forces of Galactic Tone 4, Storm/CAUAC moves through to prepare us for new growth. Storm is the Day Sign of lightening and thunder that can shake us to the core and blow the dead leaves from our branches. CAUAC brings the gift of Nitrogen that nourishes us to grow. Though there may be some initial damage, the process serves to make us more stable and resilient.

Storm/CAUAC offers dramatic evidence of unseen forces that flow through and around us. Cauac is capable to ignite us as “lightening in the blood”. We are energized by the direct transfer of life force.

We may be shaken, but are prepared to grow stronger as the end result. As we are stabilizing our connection to Spirit the Divine Spark of Cauac initiates the process of regeneration. In biology, regeneration is the process of renewal, restoration, and growth that makes us resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage.

To all my relations, may we be encouraged that unseen forces are working on our behalf to empower us through the process of regeneration. Prepare us for the dramatic changes that may take place.

2 Earth/CABAN – Choosing our Dream

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

2 Earth Caban

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.

1 Wisdom/CIB – Expecting Miracles

1 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’   O’JJ)

THE TRECENA OF WISDOM/CIB

1 Wisdom/CIB

1 Wisdom/CIB

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 bestt when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign, enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valieant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons. (A good day to sit on a rock.)

Cherokee, Owl/U’GUKU’   O’JJ: Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes.  Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritive.  Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.

Visit the Tzol’kin Page for additional insight on the Wisdom/CIB trecena.

Expecting Miracles

On Tone 1, we begin again. We are welcomed to a new trecena under the guidance of Wisdom/CIB. CIB embodies the wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom comes from all directions to be present with us in the here and now. We bring the new Spiritual Gifts we were presented by Akbal to lay them at the feet of our ancestors so that we may be given the wisdom to use them for their highest purpose.

We will be opened to new wisdom as we are able to bend in humility to the guidance of the wise ones who have gone before. Theirs are the enduring stories, the lessons passed down over the ages from one generation to the next. From the Truth we may learn under CIB’s guidance, we are prepared to write a new story… for EVERY Spirit brings forth new lessons and experiences worthy to be carried forward to the next generation.

In the Medicine Circle, I was taught that when one approaches a teacher for guidance they should bring a bountiful offering in proportion to the wisdom they expect to receive.

The Christmas season is a time of expectations. As children, we have been taught by both Christian and secular traditions that we have something to look forward to. I still believe in the miracles of the season.

The holidays are a time when I anticipate a new Spirit Gift in the way of a new piece of wisdom… a revolutionary insight. I have never failed in receiving the gift. Sometimes the gift has been a painful self-discovery, though each year the gift has been easily recognized as a blessing for the new understanding and peace they bring to my life.

As we begin our journey through Wisdom/CIB, let us come with our highest of expectations. Day 1 is the day for a new inspiration. Expect a new idea, something more wonderful than you have thought of before. Expect to learn something new. Expect a miracle.

To all my relations, we are the students – prepare us to receive the grand lessons of the ancient ones. Let the gifts and the attention we bring honor the ancient ones and reflect our highest expectations.

13 Eagle/MEN – Vision from Spirit

13 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)

Mayan Glyph, 13 Eagle/MEN

13 Eagle/MEN

Galactic Tone 13: Ascension; Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort. Thirteen is a number associated with the Ascended Masters, creation, expansion, and manifestation.

Eagle/MEN: Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle personas as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.

Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI: Eagle’s symbol is Mars the Spirit Warrior. He is a minion of Grandfather Moon. Eagles were the warrior society, the braves the protectors of the nation. Women were included. There was no discrimination which is reflected in the language: third person singular is divided into animate, human and animate, not human instead of he and she. The energy of high hopes and anticipations, dreams and visions, cosmic consciousness and commitment. On earth, a provider of excellence, leader, husbandry, care-taking of others, financial security and inheritance.

Vision from Spirit

Galactic Tone 13 is the Tone of Ascension. We are completing our journey through the trecena of Night/AKBAL and preparing to ascend to the next higher level.

Following the Tzolkin we are made aware of a pattern or rhythm of energies. Every trecena begins and ends with the guidance to reflect and do our inner work. On the first two days of every trecena we draw our inspiration for the road ahead. On the last two days, we reflect on what we have learned.

Tone 13 of ascension gives us the vision to see what we have accomplished. The Day Sign of Eagle/MEN makes the connection between heaven and earth so we may draw understanding from our highest authority in Spirit.

Eagle broadens our perspective and gives us the vision to see the far-off distance. If we look back, we can see how much we have grown. As we look forward, we can see to a farther horizon. With Eagle Vision, we are able to see what new tools we may bring to serve the journey ahead.

We are capable of more than we realize. We can draw a clearer vision of ourselves through the eyes of the Creator. In the light of the Creator’s unconditional love, we realize we are more than just enough. We are no more or no less than all that has come before. We carry within us the fire of the Holy Spirit that connects us to all that is.

Eagle opens the channel to Spirit. We can enter into this communion with humility and gratitude, giving thanks for what we have received and to ask for guidance and direction.

To all my relations, may I enter into the silence where I may hear the voice of Spirit. May I see myself through the eyes of unconditional love and give thanks for all we are given. May I be opened to receive a new understanding and the Truth that Spirit would have me know.

12 Jaguar/IX – Gifts of Spirit

12 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)

Mayan Glyph, 12 Jaguar/IX

12 Jaguar/IX

Galactic Tone 12: Twelve is a gift of great capacity of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.

Jaguar/IX: Born with a deep love of the Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength or character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains, and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as in material ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness. Patience born of strength and skill can turn to pounce of quick decision and action. Both bold and stealthful, Jaguars do not often attack directly and communications from them usually contain some mystery. In the absence of integrity, Jaguars power corrupts becoming a search for wealth and fame.

Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Panther is symbolized by comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, and magicians.  Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Panther is the Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardian of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Panthers have unlimited imaginations, visualizations, and are spellbinding speakers. The Totem Jaguar is the guardian of the portals to other dimensions; shamanic abilities will open; multi-dimensional magic; healer, leader, way shower energy when used for spiritual growth.  Abuse would be for using this power for control or negative purposes; must find a powerful balance.

Visit the Tolkin Page for additional resources and insight on the Trecena Night/AKBAL.

Gifts of Spirit

Jaguar/IX presents a time when new portals and dimensions are open to us. On this day, as the ‘Coming of the Light’ we are open to receive our spiritual gifts. Tone 12 empowers our gift of retrospection and insight. We are given Jaguar vision to see something we haven’t seen before.

Among all the Day Signs, IX is the one most capable to open us to our highest levels of consciousness. IX is the Magician who holds the memory of the Earth’s creation. IX has the power to communicate between the real and the unreal, the positives and negatives, the possible and the impossible. Guatesol

We are the Ones we have been waiting for. We are encouraged to seek our inner knowing. We must divorce ourselves from all personal motives to receive our gifts in full measure. What gifts we may be given will only endure to serve the good of all.

As such, IX calls us to be in good standing with one another. Only through right relationships are we able to see what is truly needed and how our gifts can be most helpful.

To all my relations, may I greet this day with the anticipation and in gratitude for the new understanding it will bring. May I be made worthy through my highest intentions to receive the gifts that would be presented to me. Help me see beyond my own personal gain so that I may know where healing and light is most needed to serve the greatest good for all.
