Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Vulture (Cib)

Day 196 of the 260 Day Tzolkin
Gregorian Date: May 5, 2017
Year Bearer: 5 Wind (Ik)

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.

1) Cib Trecena Article by Kenneth Johnson - Click here

Cib / Ajmaq is one of the most complex of all the day signs, but one of its core meanings is “forgiveness.” As we become aware of areas in life where the harmony has been lost, this day calls upon us to forgive. Begin by forgiving yourself! Then spread the feeling to all others around you....READ MORE

1 - Wisdom / Cib by Debra Malmos


Greetings Kin,

We enter a new beginning under the guidance of Wisdom/CIB, the Day Sign that brings new wisdom and connects us to the Old Ones, the Ascended Masters who walked this way before. The glyph represents the mind in a state of contemplation, reflection and forgiveness. The CIB trecena can clear the way for greater Spiritual progress and help us to manifest a transformation to Higher Wisdom.

AKBAL inspired us to see the Light that always shines in our darkness, and through an emotional clearing, prepared us for a New Beginning of Higher Possibility. CIB calls us to enter a time of personal reflection to look at ourselves and re-examine our experiences. CIB helps us to Gather Wisdom from an archeological treasure within our Self.

10th and 11th UINAL: 5 Sun/AHAU completes a Higher Intention of the 10th Uinal of Manifestation. On Tone 5 of Empowerment, we will Manifest a new Light of Understanding. As 6 Crocodile/IMIX moves us into the 11th Uinal, we are drawn into a cycle that guide a Higher Intention and Divine Purpose.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether - The Wisdom/CIB trecena includes 2 Portal Days that will thin the veil to other dimensions. These are days when we are capable to Experience our Spiritual Gifts and Feel the Truth of our Connection to the Ancestors. A Portal on 2 Earth/CABAN will guide the Choice of our Intention. And, on 8 Night/AKBAL, our Spiritual Discernment will be magnified on the Holy Day of Divine Justice.

• 6 Crocodile/IMIX – Our primordial Mother will guide a Way of Movement that draws upon our imagination to inspire a new and innovative approach to life.
• 7 Wind/IK – We find our Balance through a reflection on Breath of Life and Spirit.
• 8 Night/AKBAL – Divine Agency offers a Gift of Divine Justice that offers a Transformation of Spirit
• 9 Seed/KAN – An effort of Patience expands our Perspective so we are able to see Higher Truth about the Spark of Creation within.

Visit the Jaguar Spirit blog for today's full post on 1 Wisdom/CIB, and a 13-Day Trecena Guide with aspects of each kin of the trecena.
