Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Flint (Etznab)

Day 118 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

Gregorian Date: February 16, 2017

Year Bearer:  4 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 Etznab (Flint/Mirror) – reflection, spiritual warrior, self-sacrificing healer
and defender, facing the truth with strength.

To the Ancient Maya, Flint symbolized the consciousness of duality, right and wrong, good and evil,
faith and fear, the spiritual warrior who, through his actions, chooses the ethical and moral path.
The symbolic knife can be healing (as used by a surgeon or curandero) or destructive (as used by a fighter). This recognition of the duality allows each of us the opportunity to transcend pain and
suffering by choosing to live in joy and gratitude. As Kenneth Johnson states in Jaguar Wisdom,
“Indeed, it is only when we have become aware of the duality of human existence that we are
in fact awakened to the healing potential that lies within all of us. If the sword of consciousness
that makes us aware of duality can wound us, it can also heal.”

There is evidence of another ancient interpretation of the Flint glyph. According to Tony Shearer in
Beneath the Moon and Under the Sun, there was a Maya story told to Friar Juan de Cordova on the
day of Flint about a light coming from the Sun as a Solar Beam bringing with it the “Book of Days”
which we know as the sacred calendar or Tzolkin.

“On the day we call Tecpatl ( Flint ) a great light came from the northeastern sky. It glowed for four days in the sky, then lowered itself to that rock (the rock can still be seen at Tenochtitlan de Valle in Oaxaca ). From the light there came a great, a very powerful being who stood on the very top of the rock and glowed like the sun in the sky.

There he stood for all to see, shining day and night. Then he spoke, his voice was like
thunder, booming across the valley.

Our old men and women, the astronomers and astrologists, could understand him and
he could understand them.

He (the Solar Beam) told us how to pray and fixed for us days of fast and feasting. He then balanced the“Book of days,” (Sacred Calendar) and left, vowing that he would always watch down on us, his beloved people.”

Carlos Barrios, in The Book of Destiny, describes the energy of Flint: “This is the day to ask for health, to cure difficult illnesses, and to eliminate grudges and the negative energy that surrounds us. It is a good day to end negative relationships or partnerships. It is also the day to ask for intelligence and a good memory.”

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 Akbal (Night), journeying within to open the heart; 7 Kan
(Lizard), symbolizing the dynamic emergence of the seed into awareness; and 8 Chicchan (Serpent),
representing the Celestial Life Force or Chi energy that activates the connection between the
spiritual and physical world.

1 Serpent by Debra Malmos


Greetings Kin,

We begin again. Flint/ETZNAB leads a cycle of Transformation we might compare to Psychic Surgery. The Flint knife cuts deep to the heart to bring a Healing by Truth. ETZNAB is compared to an obsidian mirror that returns a perfect reflection of something that lies in the shadows. As Flint brings crystal clarity to the illusions we have about ourselves, our darkness can be cut away.

Flint/ETZNAB is likely to lead us on a journey of dramatic events. Our Shadow will be tempted to make an appearance. There's potential to see the worst of ourselves and the worst of the world around us.

The timing is significant as it follows an Ascension that elevated our Power of Spirit. Wherever Power is Held, there is potential for its corruption and misuse. Our priority following an empowerment is to clear the negative influences that would threaten our Highest Integrity.

This trecena will lead us into the Core Days of the Tzolk'in...the Center of the Galactic Butterfly and the 7th Uinal of Perfect Balance. We will be held in a state of suspended animation as our Mind, Heart, and Spirit are brought into Balance by the lightning bolt of Truth.

The Center of the Butterfly is the place of Unity that powers our Spiritual Wings of flight. Our Healing will empower us to fulfill our Spiritual Destiny. The pain of seeing ourselves so clearly will be lessened as our Perceptions of Duality are lifted. Our filter of Good or Bad will give way to the Consciousness of a Healing.

Visit the Jaguar Spirit blog for Today's Journal on 1 Flint/ETZNAB that includes a forecast of Peak Energies. A 13-Day Trecena Guide also offers a daily forecast that includes the aspects for each kin in this trecena.

The Mayan Cross

Reflections on the Mayan cross, part 2


In this installment I'll learn with you about the Mayan cross crossbar – the Masculine and Feminine nawals of the heart (center) nawal. Now, the first thing to clarify is the way in which these polar terms are used in this system. Along with the mundane view of males being masculine and females being the opposite, we need to take on board additional considerations.

Gender in the Mayan cosmovision takes on a broader sense, which somewhat parallels the Taoist approach of Yin and Yang. Yang, for example, can manifest regardless of the individual's sex, as an activity, as molding energy which strives to change and apply itself. While Yin is more receptive, hidden and encompassing, a yearning to be fertilized by someone or something...READ MORE
