Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes –1 Muluc – Water/Offering

Day 209 of the 260 Day Tzolkin
Gregorian Date: May 24, 2012
Year Bearer: 13 Caban (Earth)

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 Muluc – Water/Offering – Emotional, Imaginative, Intuitive, Vessel of Gratitude, Essence of Life, Offering Gratitude for Water and Life.

The Mayan word Muluc means “something that is gathered up or collected” referring to rain clouds collecting in the sky before a storm. The “cloud terrace” motif was used by the ancient cultures of Mexico, Hopi and Pueblo in their art and was usually portrayed in the shape of a pyramid. According to Kenneth Johnson in Jaguar Wisdom: “The Mayans taught that the power and energy of the rain was ‘collected’ in water pots or vases, which were kept by the Chacs, the helpers of the rain god. During a rain, the Chacs pour forth the waters of abundance from their rain pots. The Mayans chose a watery deity to rule over this sign: Xoc (SHOKE), the Great Fish, who is sometimes depicted as a shark, sometimes even a whale.” You will notice the day glyph resembles a fish.

This day glyph also symbolically represented jade, a blue green stone that was precious and sacred to the Maya. Treasures of jade have been found in the burial sites of Mayan Kings, mostly in the form of Jade masks. Water, like jade, was precious and sacred. Water has the power to give life or take it away. Water is used by the Maya and others as a ceremonial offering. It is especially potent for group healing and purification, releasing negative emotions and accepting change.

Carlos Barrios in The Book of Destiny states: “The sign means Tojil, the Sun God, atonement, offering, payment. It is the fire of the spirit of Ajaw, Heart of Sky and Heart of Earth. It is the raindrop, the start of communication from higher life. Ceremonial fire is believed to represent Father Sun, and it is this fire we ask to meet our needs. It is capable of curing all our illnesses and freeing us from any negative energy. It is a day on which to make offerings to Tojil. This day lifts us up to the same level as the supreme deity so that we can be judged benevolently. It reconciles us with life and brings hope.”

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 Ix (Jaguar), 7 Men (Eagle) and 8 Cib (Vulture/Owl). The Jaguar Warrior is the underworld source of power and energy, the midnight sun. The Eagle Warrior is the upperworld source of power and energy, the daytime sun. The Vulture Warrior is the karmic cleanser. This crest is offering humanity powerful forces of energy for clearing old emotional patterns and accepting change. It is interesting that this purification is following on the heels of the cleansing of the Cib trecena which we just completed. The energy of Water enables us to purify and cleanse as we prepare for transformation during the Venus Transit which occurs at the end of this Trecena (Cleansing Energy) on June 5th and the beginning of the Wind Trecena (Creation Energy) on June 6th. It has been foretold that Quetzalcoatl (Christ Energy) will return as Venus transits the Sun - filtering the Sun’s rays and showering the earth with LOVE.

Utilize the energy of Muluc to shower yourself and the universe with gratitude for water and the life it creates. As Ian Xel Lungold said, “A good day to offer appreciation for all creation.”

3) Kenneth Johnson on 1 Muluc

The Number 1 symbolizes beginnings, unity, the original energy of creation. Even though it is a low number, it is powerful, for it has to do with the energy of the new trecena which is making its arrival. Therefore, Daykeepers usually do ritual on a 1 day, and in some traditional communities there is a special shrine dedicated to the number 1. It also symbolizes the power of thought, the initial or beginning “idea” behind all things that inspires us to create and to bring things into manifestation.

MULUC (TOJ) OFFERING: Signifies offering, liberty, equilibrium, payment, a fine or a debt. This day is related to two elements, being the nawal of Water in its manifestation of rain, also of the Sacred Fire as in the Mayan Fire Ceremony. Upon this day we humbly acknowledge our karmic debts and assert our intention to “pay it all back” by placing our lives in harmony. Make atonement for all disequilibrium and be thankful for all that is in balance.

5) World Viability of the Transit of Venus on June 5 - 6, 2012

Venus was important to ancient American civilizations, in particular for the Maya, who called it Noh Ek, "the Great Star" or Xux Ek, "the Wasp Star";[10] they embodied Venus in the form of the god Kukulkán (also known as or related to Gukumatz and Quetzalcoatl in other parts of Mexico).

Dawn of a New Time Event in Sedona, Arizona June 22-24, 2012

In the words of Kogi Mamo Pedro Nino:

“The invitation for all the good hearted people to participate in the Dawn of the New Time gathering has a clear objective, which is to share the knowledge and wisdom regarding how to take care of all the elements in nature: air, fire, earth and water and above all, Mother Earth, since she gives the possibility to exist to us and to each and all beings that she represents as her sons and daughters.

We are going to share the norms and principles that guide us so we can keep ourselves in balance with nature and with her sons and daughters. We can strengthen our awareness about the responsibility that each one of us has as sons and daughters of Mother Earth and our responsibility to guarantee the permanence of life on the planet. We will get together soon.”

The Call

I know that you have heard the call.
Our Mother Earth needs you now.
She needs us all.
Find the meaning of this sign.
Join the procession of true time.
August 11, 1999 marks the start.
A journey to synchronicity.
With mother's crystal heart.
Wear this with wonder.
Wear this with pride.
Coincidence no longer
As we ride times tide.
This gift flown to you and others
Flown freely from me
To carry my prayers
That it might be
Your memory key
