Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Road (EB)
Day 92 of the 260 Day Tzolkin
Gregorian Date: July 1, 2013
Year Bearer: 1 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 Eb (Road/Grass) Abundance, Growth, Harvest, Vital Energy,
Conductor of Destiny, Spiral Ladder of Life.
|Road energy symbolizes the vital dew of heaven Blood lightning that connects our physical being to our spiritual being. When you are climbing the pyramid of true destiny, You’ll feel this energy of connection in your heart.|
To the Ancient Maya, Eb energy symbolized the ladder that God made to descend from heaven
to earth. The Maya called the energy connecting every living being to heaven “Itz” or “dew from heaven.” Climbing this ladder (symbolized by a pyramid) through the Thirteen Underworlds to Heaven was the spiritual path that all must travel. Thus Eb energy became known as the “Road

Road Energy also represents the vital spirit of life known to Ancient cultures by many different names: prana, chi, qi, life essence, mallinali, dew of heaven, blood lightning. This energy is present in all creation and is the vital force that drives consciousness. According to Kenneth Johnson in Jaguar Wisdom, “this day-sign is a symbol of the vital energy and power that propels us along the Road of Life, as well as of the Road itself.”
“This is the best day to begin any type of business or negotiation or to sign a contract. It is an auspicious day to begin a trip, whether long or short. It is a very good day for communication, especially from abroad, and for receiving news about loved ones who live elsewhere.” Carlos Barrios, The Book of Destiny.
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. This Trecena crests on 6 Caban (Earth), synchronizing our heart with Earth’s natural rhythms; 7 Etznab (Flint), the reflection – the choices we make; 8 Cauac (Storm), activation – purification – gathering energies within. As we move through these accelerated times, logic cannot keep up with the multitude and speed of changes. It is important not only to stay grounded but also to listen to your heart and let your intuition guide you on your journey. Your true destiny is designed to be revealed when you follow your heart as it beats in harmony with universal energies.
