TZOLKIN: COUNT OF DAYS
Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Serpent (Chicchan)
Day 105 of the 260 Day Tzolkin
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 Chicchan (Serpent/Snake) – celestial life force, bringer of rain, sensual, passionate, primal knowledge of duality, heart expansion through service to others.
To the Ancient Maya, Chicchan or Serpent/Snake was
the bringer of rain, symbolized by the Snake Dance or Rain Dance performed by
many native cultures such as the Hopi in the Desert Southwest and the Toltec in
Chicchan or Serpent energy connects our primal reptilian core to our spiritual aspirations. When we feel this energy, we are energized to connect and live in two realities, the material 3-D reality (everyday mundane) and the spiritual magical reality where all things are possible.
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 Oc (Dog), courage and faith which guides us on our spiritual journey; 7 Chuen (Monkey), artistic excellence which we strive for on our spiritual path; and 8 Eb (Road), our spiritual destiny or road of life.
As we journey through each day of this Trecena: 1 Chicchan (Serpent), 2 Cimi (Death/Transofrmation), 3 Manik (Deer), 4 Lamat (Rabbit), 5 Muluc (Water), 6 Oc (Dog), 7 Chuen (Monkey), 8 Eb (Road), 9 Ben (Reed), 10 Ix (Jaguar), 11 Men (Eagle), 12 Cib (Vulture), 13 Caban (Earth), utilize the energy of Serpent to connect your core with your spiritual aspirations or destiny. Go with the flow, have faith in your destiny, gratitude in your heart, love in your actions and allow your intuition to guide you.
