THE TRECENA OF OFFERING/MULUC
8 Wisdom/CIB (Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’)
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”.
Wisdom/CIB: The old ones. Wisdom of the ancients. Wisdom persons are aligned with the ancient memories that wait in the stone of temples and sacred sites all over the world. Wisdom people grow luck like a crop using a balance of prudence and tenacity. The tremendous inner strength of this sign, enables silent introspection to discover areas of oneself that contain wisdom more valuable than any trove of archaeological treasure. Wisdom persons are valieant defenders of family and community. They may become hardened to life and sentiment turned cold. In these cases, they need much forgiveness for their uncaring errors. Periodically connecting with nature and or visiting sacred sites will bring great stability to wisdom persons. (A good day to sit on a rock.)
Cherokee, Owl U’GUKU’ O’JJ: Symbol is the Owl is Arcturus, the brightest Star in the Constellation Bootes. The Cherokee Bear constellation (Ursa Major) includes the Big Dipper plus four stars in Bootes. Owl is a hunter, who stands for the wisdom and ability of all great hunters, the cunning of a fox, the tenacity of a bulldog and strength of a bear. Energy for deep thinkers, strong-willed, rigid convictions, bold and authoritive. Owl is the Mystic Ferryman who guides Earthlings on the return path to the stars holding the torch aloft.
See the 13-Day Trecena Guide if you’re following along with the trecena.
Muluc, the guide for this trecena, is a sign of water, the moon, and our emotions. Through our emotions, we are able to feel our deepest connection to one another and to the Divine Spirit. The glyph for Wisdom/CIB illustrates a brain with rays expanding in all directions. CIB represents the mind in the state of forgiveness and enlightenment, and spiritual communion.
Wisdom/CIB connects us to the wisdom of the ancients. Our ancestors remind us that we all walk the hard road of life. Their ancient wisdom reveals that we are all one in our brokenness. They can see how each and every one of us must struggle to find our way. They know how much we all need and deserve to be forgiven.
We must forgive. When we harbor resentments we don’t see things clearly. We are prevented from employing all our faculties of reason. When we forgive, we release our attachment to negative emotions, our relationships are restored, and we may serve our highest purpose to bring Love into the world. We are reconciled to the Divine Spirit through our emotions of compassion, as we realize the Truth that we all fall short of perfection.
To all my relations, may I see beyond my own wounds to see the Truth that we are all wounded travelers, sharing the same hard road of life. Through compassion for myself and others, may I be restored to wholeness through my connection to the Divine Spirit. May I be forgiven for my own offenses so that I may walk in harmony and compassion with all my relations.
