1 - Star (Lamat)

Dear Mayan Majix Friends,

Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Lamat (Rabbit/Venus)

Day 248 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Last Trecena of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Gregorian Date: January 29, 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 Lamat (Rabbit/Venus) – Abundant, Energetic, Artistic, Playful, Humorous,
Clever, Balancing Physical Pleasures and Spiritual Divinity.


The Maya word “lamat” is associated with abundance, ripeness, fertility and growth.  The glyph
itself is the Mayan symbol for the planet Venus. The Maya linked the cycle of the planet Venus
with death and rebirth (Venus appears as the Evening Star, disappears, then reappears as the
Morning Star), and with the spirit of growth and vitality.

Wild drunkenness was also associated with this day-sign. The rabbit was often portrayed as a
cheerful drunk and companion of Mayahuel, the goddess of drinking. Kenneth Johnson in Jaguar
says: “Mayahuel, it is said, was a virgin goddess under the protection of the celestial
monster or Sky Serpent. Quetzalcoatl, in his cosmic form as the god of the wind, stole her from
her guardian and fled with her to earth. He became one with her, and the two of them were
transformed into a great tree with two branches: a male branch to represent Quetzalcoatl, and
a female branch to represent Mayahuel. The Sky Serpent, angered, came with his celestial helpers
and attacked the tree that held the spirit of his former ward. The female branch was torn to pieces:
Mayahuel was dead. In sorrow, Quetzalcoatl returned to his customary form and buried the bones
of the virgin goddess. From her grave sprouted the agave or maguey plant from which the liquor
known as pulque is brewed.” This is a common Native American myth – the goddess who dies,
is buried and returns in the form of plants growing (most often, corn).


In the best known legends, Quetzalcoatl is portrayed as a fallen spiritual leader who dies in flames
and is reborn as the planet Venus, thus symbolizing the continual process of death and rebirth.


According to another legend, the Gods threw the rabbit against the moon when it appeared in
daylight. Thus, Native American and Chinese cultures both see a rabbit in the moon. It is purely
coincidental that the Chinese New Year – the year of the Rabbit – begins Gregorian February 2nd
and falls within the Rabbit Trecena of this Tzolkin.


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 Ben (Reed/Corn), 7 Ix (Jaguar), and 8 Men
(Eagle). The energy of Reed focuses attention on our connection to earth and heaven. Jaguar,
the primal jungle energy, carries our spirit through the underworld in our dreams. Eagle energy
flies our spirit up to the heavens, gifting us with the vision of our heart’s true desire.

Utilize the energy of Rabbit to create balance between physical pleasures and spiritual divinity
in order to manifest our heart’s true desire.
