Day 40 of the 260 Day Tzolkin
Gregorian Date: August 23, 2012
Year Bearer: 13 Caban (Earth)
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 Ahau (Sun/Flower/Light Lord) – enlightenment, remembrance, honor of ancestors, ascension, unconditional love, awareness of co-creation, awareness of new possibilities and new beginnings, awakening to miracles.
Sun or Light energy represents source energy that compels us to seek our spiritual path. The dreamer or visionary in each of us who follows his heart while remaining grounded (by earthly ancestral wisdom) will complete the spiritual journey. Sun energy gives us the power to co-create whatever we put our attention to. This energy of light resonates with new concepts.

The Maya also called this day sign the Day of the Ancestors or Lords, which was considered to be the most sacred of all days. Carlos Barrios in Book of Destiny states that this day sign has the power to overcome negative energy. It “governs lunar and solar eclipses…brings material and spiritual certainty. It is the realization of the solar body. It is transformation, mutation, and acuity. It is the warrior, the companion, the traveler, the dancer, and the artist, maker of wonders. It is the soothsayer – the diviner and vanquisher of spells – the lord of flowers, master and heir to the power of light.”
According to Kenneth Johnson in Jaguar Wisdom: “This is the day sign of all things lordly and complete, including the world of the Ancestors, that lies behind our present moment, linking us with times past in an endless revolution of days…it is clear that it represents that ecstatic process that connects us to the collective mind and to the cyclic flow of time itself.” The energies of the Tzolkin are helping us to move out of Chronos time (mechanized time of the Gregorian calendar and the 12:60 clock) and into Karios time – natural time, 13:20, the cyclic flow of time itself. * The Maya pegged the date of December 21, 2012 as the date for this transition to take place, so we are naturally already experiencing the transition as this date approaches for the end of the 13th Baktun, the end of the 9 Hells and the beginning of the 13 Heavens, the Golden Age.
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. Light energy underlies (or influences) the days of 6 Chicchan, Serpent or Kundalini energy rising up the spine connecting us with earthly and heavenly energies; 7 Cimi, Transformational energy, death, rebirth and ancestral wisdom; and 8 Manik, Deer or Healing Hand energy, representing the grounding of the 4-legged animals and the rituals which connect us to earth. This pattern of light energy is available now and offers each of us the opportunity to heal our spirit and heal Mother Earth.
As we journey through each day of this Trecena:
1 Ahau (Sun/Light Lord)
August 23, 2012
2 Imix (Crocodile)
3 Ik (Wind)
4 Akbal (Night/Hearth)
5 Kan (Lizard/Seed)
6 Chicchan (Serpent)
7 Cimi (Transformation)
8 Manik (Deer/Healing Hand)
9 Lamat (Rabbit/Venus)
10 Muluc (Water/Offering)
11 Oc (Dog)
12 Chuen (Monkey)
13 Eb (Road)
Utilize the energy of Light Lord to look at your personal patterns and determine what is important to your spiritual path in this moment. Pray and give thanks to the Ancestors for guidance as we are in need of miracles right now. Collectively, we can send this love and light energy wherever it is needed on Mother Earth. Que Milagro!
