1 - Crocodile (Imix)

Dear Mayan Majix Friends,

Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Imix (Crocodile/Waterlily)

Day 1 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Gregorian Date: February 11, 2010

Year Bearer:  11 Manik

New Year Bearer: 12 Eb begins on February 22, 2011


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 Imix (Crocodile/Alligator/Waterlily) – Beginning - Initiating new
possibilities and concepts – Receptivity and Trust, Earth Mother, Nourishment, Protection,
Primordial Ocean of Possibilities.


The Classic Maya believed that an earth monster or primordial Crocodile floated in the ocean
of the Underworld. He carried the Earth on his back, nourishing and protecting all life. Thus,
Crocodile supplies humanity with the underlying primal feeling of our connection to nature
and Mother Earth. The glyph itself represents a Waterlily, a symbol of beauty, abundance
and growth, and the possibility of ascension out of the primordial soup of creation.


Out of the void, a spark of fire falls into the primordial ocean of possibilities and creation spirals into life.

With 1 Imix we are starting a new Tzolkin round of 260 days which ends on 13 Ahau. 1 Imix
is a logical place to begin counting the days. The number 1 and Imix both symbolize beginning.
According to Kenneth Johnson in Jaguar Wisdom, “this is an arbitrary point of origin. The
rhythm of the Sacred Calendar is circular; many contemporary Calendar shamans insist that
it has neither beginning nor end. Nevertheless, we will follow tradition and use 1 Crocodile
as a convenient ‘beginning’.”  


This is also the last Tzolkin round of the Seventh Day of the Mayan Calendar which ends according
to Dr. Carl Calleman on October 28, 2011 ( Ahau). “When the energy
of 13 Ahau is reached in all the Underworlds, no filters will block our vision of divine light or our
communion with the Divine….After the building of its nine levels has been completed, humankind
will be ready to stand on top of the cosmic pyramid. Humanity will be complete…The creation
cycles that have served to build the cosmic pyramid, partly by making human beings into puppets,
will come to an end. The life of Universal Humankind will begin.” The Mayan Calendar and the
Transformation of Consciousness
by Carl Johan Calleman, Ph.D.


Carlos Barrios in The Book of Destiny states: “Imox [Kaqchikel language for Yucatec Imix] puts
the mind in a receptive mode, increases spiritual strength, and manages the energies of change.
It provides the power to understand nature’s messages in order to plan the next steps in one’s
life. Imox means the essence in every sense of the word. It is everything that corresponds to the
left side, the subtle part of humans. It is the unusual and the eccentric. We need a positive
equilibrium on this day because it could lead to lunacy. It is lizards or crocodiles, the energy
that manifests the hidden or internal side of humans, the powers that are dormant. It is the
essence of our consciousness, our mind. It represents the inner space of the mind and the
connection between concepts. It is the power that keeps ideas together, the strength of
our mind.”


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 Cimi (Transformation/Death), 7 Manik
(Deer/Healing Hand) and 8 Lamat (Rabbit/Venus). It is interesting that transformation, change
and new beginnings falls on the crest of the wave in the trecena Crocodile which is also the
beginning of the Tzolkin. Deer symbolizes groundedness of the four-legged animals and the
healing hand.  Rabbit energy symbolizes abundance and the pure joy of being alive and
feeling lucky. The energies of this Crest propel us to transform in order to heal and live in

Crocodile offers emotional, physical and spiritual strength which is needed to manage
the vibrational changes occurring now with planet Earth and concurrently within
