10 Storm/CAUAC (Cherokee: Redbird/TOTSU’HWA)
Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.
Storm/Cauac: Day of the blessing of rain, giver of all life and lightening, a gift of nitrogen to Mother Earth and ozone to Father Sky. Cauac is also associated with the moon and the cycles of the moon, which are the meter of the feminine aspect of creation. The essence of Storm is the feeling of unity, security and warmth experienced in the home while the tempest of trouble rages in the world outside. Perpetually youthful, Storms exist to experience the ecstasy of freedom. They have the great capacity to both learn and teach. Their constant quest for novel experiences often leads to difficult tests and storms of emotion. Looking at these difficulties for the lessons they indeed are, will enrich our lives rather than destroy. Cauac individuals teach much through their electricity of being. Lightning energizes earth, this same energy energizes humans. Divine connections can be accessed.
Cherokee, Redbird/TOTSU’HWA: Redbird’s symbol is Alcyone of the Pleiades Star in constellation Taurus. Alcyone is the Central Sun of the Universe, heart of heaven. Lightning is the visible evidence of the presence of Redbird Spirit in the Sky, daughter of the Sun Spirit, sign of Fire, Sun’s alter ego on Earth. Redbird is a feminine sign; the hand that rocks the cradle. The symbol of nurturing, the lightning nurtures and energizes, with energy for zest, curiosity, imagination, and ideas. Lightning adds spiritual force to the human by way of “lightning of the blood” of a healer, directly body to body vibration. The key to spiritual communication and access to the wisdom of the Ancestors lies in the ability to bestir the blood to speak. Sacred stones such as flint, obsidian, crystal are created by lightning striking the ground.
As the Day Sign of lightning and thunder, Storm/CAUAC offers dramatic evidence of the unseen forces that flow through and around us. Plasma is the most prevalent (known) matter in our universe, though we rarely see it until it is evidenced as light through lightning or static electricity.
Under this 13-day trecena we are guided by the Day Sign of Dog/OC to see how our dreams may be empowered by unconditional love. Through Dog’s example of faithfulness, patience, forgiveness, and forbearance, we see that we can bend to the needs of others without compromising our own integrity. We better see that through the spirit of cooperation our dreams and intentions are elevated to a higher purpose.
On Galactic Tone 10, the Tone of Manifestation, we see evidence of something new. The Divine Spark of Storm/Cauac reveals something previously unseen.
To all my relations, open my eyes to what Spirit would have me see.
In lak’ech, I am another you
