Dear Mayan Majix Friends,

Today is 1 - Earth (Caban)

Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Earth (Caban)

Day 157 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

October 30, 2010

Year Bearer:  11 Manik


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 Caban (Earth/Movement) – Inspiration, Intelligent Thoughts, Natural
Manner and Habits, Synchronizing Our Hearts with Earth’s Rhythm.


To the ancient Maya, the day sign Caban literally meant “earth” and represented the vital force
within the earth itself (earth’s rhythm) and also within the human body (heart rhythm).
According to Kenneth Johnson in Jaguar Wisdom, “its ideogram depicts a lock of hair, the hair
of the young moon goddess, who is also corn mother, earth goddess, and creative spirit. Again
we meet First Mother, that universal goddess of beginnings. Caban represents the creative spirit
(the moon goddess or First Mother) that lies inherent in the earth itself; the vital force that
manifests in the human body as teyolia, a soul substance centered in the heart, is believed
to reside in the earth.”


Caban also represented the movement or motion of the earth as in the form of an earthquake or
the surge of heart blood or chi as in the human body. Some Mayan daykeepers refer to Caban as
Incense, as it rises to heaven so should intelligent human thoughts.

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 Ik (Wind), 7 Akbal (Night) and 8
(Lizard/Seed) which might suggest changing our patterns and planting new seeds of abundance.
With Caban as the underlying energy, change comes by following the Tzolkin and balancing
our heart’s rhythm with earth’s rhythm. During this Trecena, performing ritual and meditation
will assist in harmonizing with the natural flow of the universe.


As we journey through each day of this Trecena: 

1 Caban (Earth/Movement) October 30, 2010
2 Etznab ( Flint ) October 31
3 Cauac (Storm)  November 1
4 Ahau (Sun) November 2
5 Imix (Crocodile) November 3
6 Ik (Wind)  November 4
7 Akbal (Night) November 5
8 Kan (Lizard/Seed) November 6
9 Chicchan (Serpent) November 7
10 Cimi (Transformation)  November 8
11 Manik (Deer)  November 9
12 Lamat (Rabbit) November 10
13 Muluc (Water) November 11

Utilize the energy of Caban to change our patterns and habits, our mode of living, our way of
thinking. Live from the heart and let your thoughts rise to heaven. Become stewards of this
beautiful Earth and all the life she holds – balance is the key – maintaining a balance between
technology and nature can only be accomplished if we evolve to replace feelings of greed, hate,
and righteousness with compassion, love and humility in our daily patterns and habits.
