Tzolkin Count of Days

 

Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Vulture (Cib)

Day 196 of the 260 Day Tzolkin
Gregorian Date: December 2, 2015
Year Bearer: 3 Road (Eb)


Trecenas are thirteen-day periods in the Tzolkin. Each Trecena starts with the Number 1, but with a different Day Glyph. As a wave of the Thirteen Heavens, the underlying energy is governed by the First Day Glyph of the Trecena and influences all thirteen successive Day Glyphs. Being aware of the predominant energy of the First Day of the Trecena, we can align our intentions with that energy and allow our goals to manifest.

This Trecena starts with 1 Cib – Vulture/Owl – Ancient Warrior, Keeper of Wisdom, Defender of Universal Consciousness, Silent Inner Strength of Convictions.

“This glyph signifies the mind in a state of forgiveness and illumination. It is a brain with rays, lines of expansion, reaching out in all directions.” Carlos Barrios The Book of Destiny.

In Mayan cosmology, there were four divine figures called the Bacabs (Bah KAHBS) who personified the four directions and were responsible for holding up the sky in each of the four corners. They were depicted as beekeepers or sometimes even gigantic bees and wore conch shells on their heads. The Maya associated this day sign with the conch shell as its spiral shape symbolizes emergence and rebirth. In many ancient cultures, the spiral represents death and rebirth as an ongoing process taking place within the human soul. To the Maya, the day sign of the Vulture also represented departed spirits returning as butterflies or bees.

This day sign is associated with Vulture because the Vulture not only feeds on the remains of the dead, but also clears away the past. Vulture symbolically represents the purging of karmic patterns and the emergence of new thought. Vultures and Owls were also revered as great teachers and Keepers of Ancient Wisdom. According to Tony Shearer in Beneath the Moon and Under the Sun, “In a Mayan translation of this sign we learn that this day was a day of God, the Creator of All, when just before the end of the long 1144 year epic the Creator would come down and clean up all the filth and corruption on our Earth Mother, as the Sacred Buzzard cleans the filth from our highways and fields.” NOW is the time to clear out the past (forgive and forget) in order to harmonize with the new energies of the new cycle.

Carlos Barrios in The Book of Destiny states that Cib “is a favorable day to ask for and receive forgiveness, to manage harmony and discord, and to focus on the word, the message, ancestral lines, and the energy that emanates from living bodies, called an aura.”

Another representation of the Trecena is that of a creative wave beginning at 1 and ending at 13, with the numbers 6, 7 and 8 representing the crest of the wave. The crest could be interpreted as a strong influential energy, although the underlying influence on the Trecena would still rest in the beginning. In this Trecena, the crest falls on 6 Imix (Crocodile/Waterlily), 7 Ik (Wind) and 8 Akbal (Night/Hearth). Crocodile represents ancient primal forces and new beginnings. Wind is the spirit or chi energy that gives life to primal energy. Night represents the temple which houses the soul. The Cib trecena encourages us to clear out old habits and patterns. The energies available at the crest (new beginnings flowing in the wind influencing our spiritual house) will help us to attain a new level of awareness and new patterns of existence.

As we journey through each day of this Trecena:

Utilize the energy of Cib to release old patterns which no longer serve in order to make way for new ideas and opportunities to emerge. Something has to be surrendered NOW in order for transformation to take place.

THE TURNAROUND

1-Cib is the only trecena in the Tzolkin round that has the first 4 sun-signs of the uinal neatly adorning the crest of the trecena, populating stages 6 through 9. There is therefore a unique balance between the tenth uinal’s last 5 sun-signs initiating the trecena (Cib, Caban, Edznab, Cauac, and Ahau), and the first 8 of the eleventh uinal completing it.

Therefore, this trecena, which teaches me about the sanctity and holiness of both spirit and matter, begins with the complex and abstract aspects of the uinal, and is “turned around” by the most basic aspects of prehistory, raw reality, early teachings and understandings.

So what am I doing here writing this blog? I’m reaching back through the mists of the past into a fascinating ancient culture, to bring some valuable early teachings and understandings back to the now.

You know, the lessons most needed today. A pinch from grandpa’s old tobacco bag.

This is Cib. It is realizing that in order to get rid of twisted karma that still, for some reason, interferes with achieving a better now – I need to go even further back in time for possible solutions. Ancient understandings seem to predate the modern origin of division and confusion I experience today (what the Maya called ‘the error in time’), so I’m therefore tapping into a singular/unifying-kind of wisdom.

I’m talking about those precise answers dad comes up with, wearing a wrinkled brow.

5) "The Serpent and the Jaguar" author Birgitte Rasine is coming out with a new book—this time, a novel for younger readers about the history and mythology of cacao.  Did you know that in the cacao-producing regions of Mesoamerica, the sacred world tree was not the Ceiba tree but the Cacao Tree?  Join Max, the son of a bee researcher, and Itzel, the daughter of a Maya beekeeper, on an extraordinary journey of exploration, magic and myth-turned-history in the northern region of Guatemala.


Jaguar and Cacao



The book launches in March 2016 but the Mayan Majix and MCP communities are invited to a special pre-release of the digital version of the book. The pre-release window will close on December 31, 2015, so be sure to get a copy for the young reader in your family now!
