MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 8 brings the Peak Energy of Divine Justice and is the number of “pure spirit.” Balancing the Above and the Below, what we have accomplished in the Realm of Spirit will be balanced on the physical plane.
Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of the mystic and shaman. Born with a deep love of Mother Earth, IX holds the power of Earth Magic. IX led our last trecena, guiding us to experience the magic within our self. Returning on the Holy Day of the trecena, Jaguar/IX begins a new transformation, built on the accomplishment of our last effort.
Jaguar is creature of multi-dimensional magic that can carry us across the planes of existence, transforming us with a Higher Consciousness of our Unlimited Potential of Being. 8 Jaguar/IX is a High Holy Day of Spirit that calls us to look from our place on Mother Earth to the Signs and Wonders in the sky. Today is the day of Spiritual Experience that begins our Next Transformation.
Comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, and magicians are symbols of the Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI. 8 Jaguar/IX Heralds a Coming of the Light.
“Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years.” (Genesis 1:14)
8 Jaguar/IX repeats a reflection of the 8:8 Lion’s Gate, the alignment of Orion’s with pyramids at Giza, and the soon return of the Dog Star Sirius. Many sacred sites from the ancient world, including the Maya and the Hopi, mirror celestial alignments to the belt of Orion. The Hopi believed the Belt of Orion marked the center of the universe where contact could be made with the Gods.
The August 8th Lion’s Gateway is followed by the Perseid Meteor Shower, when fireballs will be seen in the sky in the early hours after midnight. The Earth has also been passing through the through the tale of Comet Swift-Tuttle since July 17, 2017, and is reaching the densest and dustiest area tomorrow. The first Solar Eclipse to occur in the USA in 99 years arrives on August 21, 2017, which follows a Lunar Eclipse August 7-8, 2017.
The heavens are announcing the coming of New Light. We are in a time of Signs and Wonders in the sky that have been preserved in stone for thousands of years. Jaguar/IX guards the sacred temples of the Maya.
The Lions Gate draws Sirius closer to us bringing new Light to the Liberation of Humanity from centuries led by the influence of darkness. Eclipse seasons represent a time of transformation that is our dying of the Old Self and the birth of the New. Our old ways of being must also die away. We can expect some confusion as our New Self adjusts to its New Way of Being.
8 Jaguar/IX is the shape-shifter that can lead us to any place and time. The Jaguar can take us on a journey to the Dimension of Spirit for a Vision of the Creator’s Plan. This is a day to watch for psychic occurrences. A new light is raising our psychic awareness. Seeing flashes of white or blue light are also associated with the influence of Sirius, a Sign of the beginning of a Spiritual Transformation.
We are all included. This is a time to acknowledge each other as awakening beings, all sharing the birthright of Unconditional Love. No One was made Greater or Lessor than the Other. Each is offered the same Equal Choice. We are each Transformed through a new Spiritual Vision of Our Self.
To all my relations, may we Honor Mother Earth for her sustenance and beauty, and pray for All that hold the energy of the Divine Feminine… our grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, girlfriends and wives, and ALL who serves in the role of the Compassionate Care Giver. The Divine Feminine is the womb that will birth our new Light. May we welcome in the new with all its challenges and discomfort, standing in Faith that our new Way will soon take hold. May we look to Father Sky where a vault of heavenly bodies mark this as a Sacred Time in the Transformation of Humanity.
in lak’ech, i am another you

8 Jaguar/IX (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)
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”.
Jaguar/IX: Born with a deep love of the Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength or character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains, and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as in material ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness. Patience born of strength and skill can turn to pounce of quick decision and action. Both bold and stealthful, Jaguars do not often attack directly and communications from them usually contain some mystery. In the absence of integrity, Jaguars power corrupts becoming a search for wealth and fame.
Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Panther is symbolized by comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, and magicians. Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Panther is the Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardian of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Panthers have unlimited imaginations, visualizations, and are spellbinding speakers. The Cherokee Totem Jaguar is the guardian of the portals to other dimensions; shamanic abilities will open; multi-dimensional magic; healer, leader, way shower energy when used for spiritual growth. Abuse would be for using this power for control or negative purposes; must find a powerful balance. Ix: The Kab’awil represents the heart of the planet, the female reproductive tract, the face of a jaguar and points east on the world map. Ix: woman, tiger. Conducive to pray for grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters and wives day. For wisdom at 4 Balances, cunning and protection of Mother Nature. To thank the Earth for sustenance. Ix is the native cunning, enterprising, vigorous, bold and realistic.
