As we are in the middle of a major move this trecena is incomplete at the moment. The basic days are notes below, but the fuller text cannot be added until somewhere around June 19th or 20th. To be continued . . .
The overall theme for this 13-day time frame is Sacrifice and Reconcilation, which suggests that a considerable amount of “give-and-take” may be required in order to achieve a new stability. Fortunately, one of the main patrons of this time frame is a deity who is oriented towards the erasing of transgressions, so this may be a good time to seek forgiveness or pardon for past issues.
Although it is not possible to predict the exact nature of the “Sacrifice and Reconcilation” that may unfold during the 13 days of this trecena, it certainly can be a time of “testing” that can require people to deal with any issues that may have recently arisen – again, working towards the goal of regaining some sense of balance. As this unfolds, these are the energies that will come into play:
1 Manik’ (June 16th) – the “initiation of reciprocity”, this time in conjunction with the New Moon
2 Lamat (June 17th) – a “dynamic heralding” (or leadership) type of energy; Maya birth energy of Elvis Presley
3 Muluk (June 18th) – the “activation of water”, often a powerful “shape-shifting” type of force
4 Ok (June 19th) – a “defining” Burner Day representative of fire (or heart-fire), this time in conjunction with a Jupiter-Venus-Moon conjunction, as well as Juneteenth, aka Freedom Day or Emancipation Day in recognition of the emancipation of slavery. This 4 Ok energy can often stir the emotions as it is a “double-fire” type of force; in 2011 the explosion at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan (after the tsunami) took place under this influence.
5 Chuwen (June 20th) – a “precision” oriented energy in combination with play or even mischief; a “timeweaver” type of energy that can bring about change; the second day of the Jupiter-Venus- Moon conjunction
6 Eb’ (June 21st) – generally representative of “restorative vitality everywhere”, this time in conjunction with Summer Solstice, Father’s Day, National Aboriginal Day, Car Free Day in Vancouver, and the International Day of Yoga
7 B’en (June 22nd) – a “self generating personal authority” type of energy, the sixth Tzolk’in anniversary of the beginning of Syrian Uprising
8 Ix (June 23rd) – “resurrecting Jaguar” – this is Santo Mundo, a special Maya day devoted to the Celebration of the Earth and its sacred mysteries
9 Men (June 24th) – the “outward projection” of vision (as in the high-flying vision of the Eagle)
10 Kib’ (June 25th) – a “foundational restoration” type of energy which can fluctuate between the setting up of important foundations (as in the setting up of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty in 1968) to the kind of massive “clean up” that was required in China in 2008 after the Szechuan earthquake.
11 Kab’an (June 26th) –the energy of “change” combined with the force of evolutionary movement
12 Etz’nab’ (June 27th) – a powerful “knife-edge” type of force that can bring forth powerful separation (or “sacrifice-related”) events, as in the execution of Anne Boleyn in 1536 and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln in 1865.
13 Kawak (June 28th) – “transformational storm”, a highly intense force that has coincided with a number of devastating natural disasters in the past, such as the 9.2 earthquake in Alaska in 1964 (the most powerful ever recorded in North America), and Hurricane Dennis that caused billions of dollars worth of damage across four states in 2005. In 1962 this was the most critical day during the Cuban missile crisis. In 2013 this energy activated Popocatepetl volcano near Mexico City and coincided with a solar eclipse. Its appearance in Jan. 2014 coincided with the riots that spread from Ukraine’s embattled capital of Kiev to nearly half the country, with people demanding the resignation of President Vikto Yanukovych. Huge fireballs lit up the night sky in central Kiev, and angry demonstrators hurled firebombs, rocks, and fireworks at riot police. Protestors occupied a number of government buildings in several cities in western Ukraine and government buildings in many places were beseiged. As this is a powerful energy, this is a good time to be vigilant.
