Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes –1 Ben (Reed)

Day 53 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Gregorian Date: December 13, 2016

Year Bearer: 4 Earth (Caban)

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 Ben (Reed/Corn) ambitious, strong, confident, inner power, authority, crusader, champion, journeying in new directions, energy connector between heaven and earth, sharing connections with others.

“The vertical lines or stalks at the top of this glyph that come only partway down signify spiritual growth. The horizontal line, symbolizing multiplication and the horizon, is an altar table, and the sacred trees, such as the ceiba and coral tree, with their roots, trunk, and canopy, also represent a table or altar.” Carlos Barrios, The Book of Destiny.

In Mayan prophecy, the god-king Feathered Serpent or Quetzalcoatl would return to humanity in the year 1 Reed. According to the legend, as a spiritual leader Quetzalcoatl advocated the replacement of human sacrifice with flowers, songs and meditation. It was told that he erected a pillar in the city of Tula “Place of Reeds” symbolizing the World Tree as an energy conduit between heaven and earth.

Reed energy, like a pillar receiving sunlight energy, serves as the connection between heaven and earth. Thus Reed energy becomes a conduit of light energy, photosynthesis on a spiritual level, our continual link through many levels from the primordial cellular level to the higher vibration level of multidimensional existence. This photosynthesis of energy (“kundulini” running up and down our spine) brings out the best in us, especially our passion for a concept we believe in. We may feel inclined to begin a crusade for change, and many may gravitate to those born on the Day of Reed because of their clear visions of changing the world for the better.

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 conduit of light energy crests on 6 Etznab (Flint), mirror or reflection, exposing our inner selves; 7 Cauac (Storm), gathering energy to clear and cleanse our spirit; and 8 Ahau (Sun), embodiment of light energy encouraging our inner spirit to flower. This influx of light energy is just what we need to create changes in the NOW.

As we journey through each day of this Trecena:

Utilize the energy of Reed to recognize and honor our inner strength of power and authority. Now is the time to access this higher vibration - create positive changes in our individual lives which will also create positive changes in our world.

1) Aj Trecena Article by Kenneth Johnson - Click here

While Aj is often known as a day sign of ‘hearth and home,” it is also a day of authority. It may always be a good idea to “question authority,” but sometimes we have to question our own authority as well. This is a good time to take inventory of how you are interacting with the world around you, and to shape your own life so that it is in harmony with the lives of all those around you...READ MORE

Reed / Ben by Debrah Malmos


Greetings Kin,

We begin again, given a new Sacred Cycle of Creation for our next Transformation. The purpose of Reed/BEN is to initiate us into a Communion of Spirit. The Glyph illustrates an altar as the horizontal line. Above, the columns are the hollow tubes through which our Communion with the Divine is made possible. Below are the Prayer Mats where we kneel in humility in the Presence of the Creator. The channels of Light only reach part way down to show that to enter into this Divine Communion, we must make that choice.

The Reed/BEN trecena will elevate the Consciousness of our Choices. Home is where we are most Humbled by the Truth of our Authenticity. As the Guiding Light for family, Reed/BEN softens our hearts toward home. Home is the place of our Altar and the sphere of influence where we can make a difference for future generations.

PORTAL DAYS: The Reed/BEN trecena will present us with two portal days. On our first Peak Day, 6 Flint/ETZNAB (Kin 58), a Portal will magnify a Point Made Known about an unworthy pattern of behavior, and will help to clear away old karma. On 12 Seed/KAN (Kin 64) a Portal will help complete a new Understanding through an experience of our Intuition and Knowing.

On 8 Sun/AHAU we re-enter the Light of Illumination on the Solar Number 8 of Pure Spirit. On the Holy Day of the trecena, the Light of a new Transformation will be exalted by an application of Divine Justice.
