Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Monkey (Chuen)

Day 131 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Gregorian Date: November 16, 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 Chuen (Monkey) – master artisan, master craftsman, imaginative, mischievous, gaining wisdom through curiosity.

According to legend as recorded in the Popol Vuh, twin sons were born to One Hunahpu: One Batz and One Chuen (the word Batz meaning “monkey” in Quiche dialect and the word Chuen meaning “artisan or craftsman” in Yucatec dialect). Thus, this day sign symbolizes the monkey as the master artisan and master craftsman of all fine arts and innate knowledge. It is also considered to be one of the most fortunate and lucky day signs.

Artistic excellence was honored and held sacred by the Ancient Maya as evidenced by the inscriptions left on stone monuments, cave walls and pottery. Kenneth Johnson in Jaguar Wisdom writes: “The funerary inscriptions on ancient Mayan ceramics make it clear that the Classic Mayan scribes were painters as well as literary artists and keepers of sacred lore. These members of the Mayan royal houses who specialized in knowledge recognized the Monkey God as their patron deity. Given such an intimate connection between sacred knowledge and creative artistry, we should not be surprised to learn that Monkey is still regarded as the day of the ‘masters of all the arts’ as well as being one of the days dedicated to the Calendar keepers and their lore. Monkey is the day of the craftsman, the wisdom-keeper and the artist. It exemplifies both the spiritual and creative power as well as the over-reaching egotism of the artistic temperament.”

“The Maya depict time as a thread wound around a giant reed underneath the Earth. This thread is unraveled as time goes by. History is woven from time, just as clothing is made from woven threads. Before the Maya used thread, they wove with pop, or palm and thus the Popul Vuh was originally called the Pop Vuh. This sign indicates that time has unraveled, giving us life and existence. This is why we are happy and dance around the fire from right to left during a sacred ceremony, until we have circled it thirteen times. When the ceremony is about to end, we dance around the fire another thirteen times, from left to right, winding up the spool of time again. This symbolizes our love and desire for more life. Ajaw, the Great Father, is movement, and dance is movement. The Creators and Makes tossed a thread to the end of the universe, then folded it and threw it back.” 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. In this Trecena, the crest falls on 6 Cib (Vulture/Owl), 7 Caban (Earth), and 8 Etznab (Flint). Therefore, a creative intention that incorporates the aspects of cleansing and letting go, grounding ourselves with nature, and using our creativity to transform our reality could easily manifest during this Trecena. Remember that egotism is the dark side of this fortunate and lucky day sign, so don’t become so self-centered that you fail to think of others.

1 - Monkey (Chuen)


Greetings Kin,

The next 13 days…

1 Monkey/CHUEN begins a new Season of Light. We begin the Summer Season of this Tzolk’in round of 260 days. We will multiply Love through the Miracle of Birth.

Human’s Highest Personal Experience of Spirit is taking part in the Creation of a New Spirit of Consciousness. Divine Intervention is a necessary part of the Magic of Creation. The Creator is the Source of the new Divine Spark. Through the experience of Birth, we will bear witness to an Act of Divine Authority.

Monkey/CHUEN is the Weaver of Time. The glyph illustrates "time rolled up" on Monkey's head, connecting our Past, Present and Future. Monkey works through our unconscious to draw Inspiration. The face of Monkey is similarly imposed on the glyph of Night/AKBAL, the Day Sign of Spirit that Speaks in our Dreams. Monkey/CHUEN is the Day Sign of a Dreamer, capable of manifesting the Dream, weaving the tapestry of our life into a thing of Beauty.

7th & 8th UINALS:

We still exist in the 7th uinal that Balances the Above and the Below. The Flint/ETZNAB trecena offered a clearing of karma that Purified our Spirit with the Consciousness of Unconditional Love. Monkey/CHUEN inspires us to Create an Expression of Love. The 7th uinal crystallizes our vision of the future. 10 Sun/AHAU will complete the 7th uinal, balancing the Above and Below through a Manifestation of Divine Light. We will begin the 8th uinal, Purified in Spirit for the Justice that will be accomplished by Divine Intervention.


1 Monkey/CHUEN marks 21 days to the K’iche Maya New Year celebrated on 8 B’atz (8 Monkey/CHUEN). Observing 21 days of personal ceremony is a traditional preparation for those who count the days to be initiated as Mayan Daykeepers on the New Year. 8 B’atz marks the Maya’s Highest Celebration of the Sacred Calendar of Creation.


The momentum of movement is created on Tone 6, the cresting of a wave of trans-formative energy. These are the most favorable days for influence and accomplishment.  The lower numbered Tones hold less energy, intended as days of inner work. The higher numbered Tones are compared to a wave crashing - a powerful energy already set into its course of motion.

  • 6 Wisdom/CIB – Connected to the Ancestors, we learn their Way to Higher Consciousness, through the Intention of Forgiveness.
  • 7 Earth/CABAN – We are Balanced by the Forces of Nature and the Movement of Mother Earth.
  • 8 Flint/ETZNAB – The Truth of Spirit is exalted for a new Transformation of Justice.
  • 9 Storm/CAUAC – We are Transformed by a Regeneration of Consciousness of the Creator's Spark within and the Truth of our Unbridled Freedom.

Chichen Itza

Archaeologists in Mexico believe they may have unlocked a mystery beneath a Maya pyramid at the Chichen Itza site in Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. The temple complex was built about 1,000 years ago and was first seen by Europeans when Spanish conquistadors came to Mexico in the early 1500s. Experts have found a secret passageway within the Temple of Kukulcan (Maya for 'feathered serpent' and the name of an ancient Maya hero) that leads to massive sinkhole and cave. The temple is also known as
"El Castillo" -- Spanish for castle.
