THE TRECENA OF WIND/IK
8 Offering/MULUC (Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA)
Galactic Tone 8: Justice. Harmony and balance are the intent of Eight. Eights carefully weigh all evidence to reach a balance of justice. Eight is the power of organization demonstrated in the statement, “As above, so below”. From simplicity to infinity, the energy of Eight organizes all levels of creation. Some Eights are “Neat Freaks”.
Offering/MULUC: Also known as the sign of water. Ceremonially, Maya use water as an offering in baptisms and purifications. These ceremonies are done to bring about a collective strength, adaptability and harmony. In sincere appreciation, Offering people gladly give more than they ask for themselves. Offering persons are dynamic communicators with great intelligence making them excellent employers. Like a shaken vessel of water, Offering people regain equilibrium quickly. Also like a body of water, there may be deep undercurrents of emotion and hidden dangers. Others perceive these as hidden agendas in offering people and so extend them little trust and may even slap blame on them.
Cherokee, The River/YUN’WI GUNNAHI’TA: The River is symbolized by The Milky Way, the Gihli’Utsun’stanun’yi “Where the Dog Ran” to gather the souls for Heaven. The River is the minion for Grandfather Moon. Long Man is the personification of the River stretching from the mountains to the lowlands, speaking to those who can understand. People of this sign find “sermons in the stones” and good in everything. These souls march to a different drummer, driven by inner volcanic forces. The River is the “Fountain of Life” and represents the fluid of the cosmos to fluids in the body, with the energy to clear all karmic debts, personally and on a mass level with fluidity and grace. The Moon controls our fluid cycle, to clear and understand emotional issues. When you take this step to clear the emotional body, then you are ready for transformational energies at the next level. As humans, our actions are ruled by our emotions, the key is to understand the connection and honor the emotions.

Falling into Step
Through the trecena of Wind/IK we have been learning to manage the chaos that is part of the process of change. At Tones 8 and 9 we experience peak energies of the 13 day trecena. Galactic Tone 8 shows us a way to bring harmony and balance by establishing a pattern or rhythm of movement.
As a sign of water, Offering/MULUC relates to water and our emotions. Cherokee’s sign of The River tells us that we must clear our emotional body to be prepared for transformation at the next level. This is the final step before change – the release of our emotions and our purification by water. We are being shown a way to maintain our balance through the many ways we are given to build our relationship with the Divine Spirit.
Every step forward includes a fall… the out of balance place between steps. As children we learned to walk as we gained the courage to fall forward. As we gained confidence we we fell into the rhythm of walking, and then running.
Together Tone 8 and Offering/MULUC demonstrate the pattern of exchange with the Divine Spirit that provides a way for us to continually move forward in harmony and balance. As we find our sense of rhythm in our relationship with the Divine, our experience of chaos may change. We may come to think of chaos as just those moments between steps, where we no longer think twice – we just fall forward.
To all my relations, may we know we are always under the guidance and care of the Divine Spirit. Help us to remember we need never fear, knowing the way forward has already been prepared for us.
In lak’ech, I am another you
