From the beginning of February 2016 there are many opportunities to create changes, allow for new growth and to rejuvinate.
Groundhog day, Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, President’s day and Valentine’s Day are the well-known official holidays. I will look at the deeper meaning that these days will carry this year on the 260-day shamanic Tzolkin calendar. Then I will share about the new Tzolkin round that begins with 1 Imix Feb. 5th.
Feb. 1, 2016 is 10 Noj/Earthquake. So the month begins with new thoughts, some good some not so good. The message is for us to keep our heads as we dive into this Gregorian calendar month. It may be hard to tell the difference between the whispers of your heart and the screeching of your hormones so try to stay grounded.
Groundhog day will not be like the others before. Feb. 2 is 11 Tijax, the Mirror Flint knife. Time to make those cuts with the past, including residue from the previous large cycyle. Cut those bad habits and self-defeating attitudes.
The current Tzolkin cycle ends Feb. 4, 13 Ahau/Sun and the new begins 1 Imix/Crocodile. Dance in the streets on 13 Sun and gather with friends on 1 Crocodile Feb.5th, to discuss what thee next 260 days shall bring. The new Tzolkin ends Oct. 21, 2016.
Sensuality reigns Feb. 8 with the New Moon and Chinese New Year falling on 4 Ka’at/Lizard. This will be a good lunar cycle for casting your nets all around you. Social, business and romantic connections all flourish. Just be sure to maintain a polite and positive attitude. This should help you through Mardi Gras, which falls on 5 Serpent, a strong throat chakra energy. Use it to express your love and get a jump start on Valentine’s day.
Feb. 14th is 10 Tzi/Dog. Manifest a new authority, create a new pack of friends or a new relationship. The next day, President’s day, is 11 Batz/Monkey. Considering what a crazy first half of February this has been, it may just be par for the course that there is one more day that anything can happen, or you just don’t know what year it is anymore.
The Full moon Feb. 22nd is on 5 Tijax/Flint Knife, be with the one who reflects your highest self.
A few other special days this month include 6 Kame/Death, one of the most beautiful days of the Tzolkin cycle is Feb. 10th, and 13 Aj/Reed one of the most intense energies falls Feb. 17th.
For historical reference think back to previous tzolkin change-over times, May 20-21 of 2015, and Sept. 2-3rd of 2014. Then there was also the major Baktun shift Oct. 28th in 2011 to compare these times to.
Aho Mitakuye Oyasin!
