In breath, out breath. Talking and listening. Creating in collaboration. The individual and the collective. Balance in the Middle Way, renunciation and fulfilment of desires. Receive and give. Self and the other. Nothingness and something. The thing is energy condensed to a slow vibration. God is not a particle. God is Love. Love is found within the Self before it can be manifested in reality, the other that is outside our individual vessel.
8 Akabal, Jan. 27, 2018, it has been 52 days since we held the Maya Sun Priest initiation ceremony at my house in New Braunfels, now called Violet Flame Ashram. I supposed I could have been doing a better job with these posts to my new apprentices, but I blame the weather, this has been an unusually cold winter in Texas. We even had snow in December and then several days in a row of below freezing temperatures right after New Year’s day. So I need to recap a little of what has been happening on the Maya tzolkin dates.
8 Dog happened on Jan 14th, I was getting down on myself for not planning a proper fire ceremony for that day. It turns out I had a ceremony anyway at my friends Marcos and Carmen’s house. While Marcos and I were recording music, Carmen went and lit a pile of leaves and branches she had raked in the yard. Good enough!
On the calendar from thefourpollars.net, January’s new moon is shown on the 17th, but in CST it happened the 16th – 10 Road on the tzolkin. This was the coldest day so far this winter and the roads were very icy. I intended to go to a voluteer meeting for the Conscious Media Festival in Austin, but that was cancelled anyway. There just happened to be some other folks in nearby Canyon Lake who had come from Houston to attend the same CMF meeting. Gentleman that I AM, I drove out on the icy roads to bring them to my house and we had an amazing fun night by the fire pit on my patio. Destiny indeed, great friendships had begun.
12 Jaguar, it had been 260 days since my father passed away, so I did not celebrate much what used to be my favorite tolkin day. 13 Eagle, my friend Craig came up from Houston for a mellow visit.
Jan. 23, was 4 rainstorm “a good day to set the table for an all night drunk”, I had bad allergies and took a Benadryl tablet hoping it would help me sleep, instead it only made me feel drunk and hungover all the next day. 5 Ahau, I cleared up just enough that evening to record some great music. I also got a phone call from a good friend inviting me to go on a trip to Macchu Picchu. I hope we can combine that with my intended plan to visit Chichen Itza on the Spring Equinox – 8 Eagle.
Whew! That was a mouthful. This is some hard work. Remember to do some kind of ceremony tomorrow, Jan 27, 2018 – 8 Night. Just light some candles and go through the next twenty days- ending on 1 Wind, Jan. 15, 2018.

February starts with 13 Qanil/Rabbit – a day to be spoiled rotten. Valentine’s day falls on the very significant 13 Imix. The Venus Transit of June 5th 2012 was 13 Imix/crocodile, a beginning of a uinal and an end of a trecena.
The Haab (365 day cycle) begins on Feb. 20th, 6 deer.
If you are in my apprentice program please let’s start getting folks for private readings. This is pretty important for understanding how the tzolkin effects personalities.
Happy day counting!
