Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Cauac (Storm/Rain)

Day 79 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Gregorian Date: January 15, 2012

Year Bearer:  12 Eb

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 Cauac (Storm/Rain) – purification, activation, dynamic force, healing,
nourishment, compassion, gathering energies within.

Tempestuous energies, emotional energies, the storm gathers within.
Separate thinking and emotions from awareness. Watch the storm wash
away the ego, allowing room for the new consciousness.

The day glyph itself resembles a bunch of grapes stacked in the shape of a pyramid and was known
by the Maya to represent clouds pregnant with rain. These pyramidal cloud terraces were also known to the Anasazi and other Southwest Indian tribes as evidenced in their art and architecture. Kenneth Johnson, well known author and astrologer, describes this day sign as representing “that moment, repeated throughout the world but always powerful, when the clouds gather, lightning strikes and rain bursts forth – a quintessentially creative moment.”

Ian Xel Lungold referred to Cauac as “Day of blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightning, a gift
of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky.” Storm can also be seen as a dynamic energy
of change and karmic resolution. So, although this day sign can appear to be a troublesome sign with many challenges, it is also a good sign for experiencing life’s lessons and seeing those lessons as blessings. Many of us may feel overwhelmed by the tumultuous times that we are living in. Focusing on the energy of Storm and acknowledging what is really important to you (not just material wealth) grounds your energy and allows for easier assimilation of the rapid changes and complexity occurring on Planet Earth at this time.

“This is the best day to ask for the common good and the well-being of the family, as well as to settle family disputes or problems of a financial nature. It is a good day to attract affluence and abundance in business.
It is a day on which to ask for good weather for crops.”

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. 6 Kan (Lizard/Seed), the seed awaiting germination; 7 Chicchan (Serpent), life force and Bringer of Rain; 8 Cimi (Transformation/Death), energy of change. The Storm brings to mind the seed
germinating with the catalyst of the life giving rain, flowering and transforming as life evolves.

Kenneth Johnson on 1 - Cauac:

" Welcome the new trecena by praying that there may always be harmony in our home lives and among our friends. Although Cauac has a connection with “karmic payback” which may sometimes make its energies difficult to handle, it is
also a day upon which Daykeepers work closely with their apprentices because of its mystical qualities. It is auspicious
for all matters regarding health and healing. It has a special connection with women and with feminine energy, and many contemporary Maya believe that women born on Cauac make the best midwives."
