Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Serpent (Chicchan)

Day 105 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Gregorian Date: February 10, 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 Chicchan (Serpent/Snake) – celestial life force, bringer of rain, sensual, passionate, primal knowledge of duality, heart expansion through service to others.

To the Ancient Maya, Chicchan or Serpent/Snake was the bringer of rain, symbolized by the Snake Dance or Rain Dance performed by many native cultures such as the Hopi in the Desert Southwest and the Toltec in Mexico. In Maya legend, there were Four Chicchans, Sky Serpents, who encircled the world and were responsible for guarding the four quarters of the world. When they spoke, thunder was heard which was followed by lightning and rain. According to Kenneth Johnson in Jaguar Wisdom, “it is more accurate to speak of four aspects of a single deity than it is to speak of four deities. This four-in-one concept is a common theme among all the peoples of ancient Mesoamerica. The Four Chicchans are, in this sense, four aspects of the Sky Serpent who encircles the world – whose upper face looks toward Heaven and whose lower face forms the gateway to the Underworld. This Sky Serpent takes many forms; even the great civilizer Quetzalcoatl seems originally to have been an aspect of the Sky Serpent (as indicated by his name, Feathered Serpent).”

The image of a snake combined with a lightning bolt is found in ancient Anasazi petroglyphs representing lightning not only in the sky but also lightning in the body. This corresponds to the Maya concept of “blood lightning” and the Hindu concept of “kundalini” energy running up the spine. Thus, Serpent Energy is a symbol of the life force that flows in the body and in the sky.

Chicchan or Serpent energy connects our primal reptilian core to our spiritual aspirations. When we feel this energy, we are energized to connect and live in two realities, the material 3-D reality (everyday mundane) and the spiritual magical reality where all things are possible. Today, this seems to be very pertinent as we find ourselves living between two paradigms, the old and the new. The old being the material 3-D reality and the new being the next level of awareness that merges ethereal energies with the material plane.

Carlos Barrios in The Book of Destiny describes Chicchan as “the Creator and Maker of the universe…human evolution and spiritual development. It is every kind of growth. It is DNA in the shape of a double helix, which contains our generic code and humanity’s collective memory….also truth, justice, intelligence, and peace. It is the orbit of the planets. It symbolizes the cycles of time and change. It is integration, autonomous functions, the ability to act, and the agility of action. It is the energy of knowledge, its transmutation into wisdom, serpentine strength and power, and sexual magic.”

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 Trecena crests on 6 Oc (Dog), courage and faith to guide us on our spiritual journey; 7 Chuen (Monkey), artistic excellence to inspire and create our spiritual path; and 8 Eb (Road), our spiritual destiny or road of life.

The Art of Dreaming in Highland Guatemala by Kenneth Johnson

"According to the Maya, each human being is born with two souls. One of them is known as the uxlab. The Spanish word anima is often used to describe this aspect of soul, since it is identical to what Catholic Christians perceive as the soul. It is invested in the body and in breathing. It remains within the body until the moment of our death...."
