This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of January 24th for 1 – Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with Venus entering Pisces, and the Leo Full Moon.
January 24th for 1 – Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard which carries the themes of corn, the net overflowing after the harvest, planting, ripeness, sexual maturity, abundance to manifest, connecting with others, the lizard of fertility and growth, germination, children and family. The seed in the Tzolkin has two primary representations: a huge net full of corn and the lizard, both are symbols of fertility. This thirteen day period is excellent for planting new intentions and other seeds.
Since we begin a new Gregorian month during this trecena, I thought I'd discuss the metaphysics of the upcoming month. February is the second month and with the digits for 2015, when added together we get 10, then we add 1 + 0 to tell us that this is a one month in numerology. Basic numerology reduces numbers to one through nine, so when we think about that arc the 1 represents a time of new beginnings. The 10 and the 1 are represented by the Wheel of Fortune and Magician Archetypes in the Tarot cards. The Wheel of Fortune is about prosperity and abundance that comes from being objective, flexible, and creative. To quote Ruth Ross "All prosperity begins in the mind and is dependent only upon the full use of our creative imaginations." The 1 card is the Magician which represents the principle of communication, represented by the god Mercury. Words were originally magic. Another quote to illustrate the Magician Archetype comes from Starhawk, "Language shapes consciousness, and the use of language to shape consciousness is an important branch of magic." So February represents the beginning of a new nine month cycle which comes into being through our communications leading us towards prosperity by being flexible, objective, and creative. This sets powerful new energies in motion that required the numerological nine month of January 2015 to release the old and worn out, whether it's aspects of self, life situations, attitudes that no longer work, or concepts, beliefs, or perceptions that have out grown their usefulness, so in February we can move forward unencumbered. We see this supported as the Magician, Mercury returns to direct motion and Chinese new year of the Green Wood Sheep occur in February.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 – Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard trecena, on the 24th all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth Mercury and Jupiter which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. Remember the themes of retrograde planets are the review the past, re-evaluate, reminisce and we can see these themes being played out. Mercury in Aquarius is retrograde until February 11th, so during the Kan trecena would be a good time to avoid signing contracts or other legal papers, making any major purchases, or even taking a new job. If you can postpone these types of activities the terms will be much clearer after Mercury is moving direct. Mercury retrogrades force us to slow down and pay more attention to our lives by making us focus on the details of our daily experience. Jupiter retrograde in Leo brings a review of opportunities, faith, religion, beliefs and expansion. Leo is about leadership, creativity, drama, entertainment, and children. Mostly what I find with Jupiter retrograde, as with any retrograde cycle there is a review of the past, and with Jupiter what gets reviewed are missed opportunities.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena.
January 24th for 1 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: unity experienced through planting seeds and making new connections in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, while the Moon in Aries is supported by Saturn and in harmony with the Sun which shifts from having a sober realistic view of life to later feeling balance between our inner and outer worlds.
The 25th is 2 – Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: duality experienced through being flexible, with the Moon in Aries merging with Uranus, challenged by Pluto, harmonizing with Mercury, and supported by Jupiter which moves from people feeling impulsive and acting rashly, with moods changing quickly and unexpectedly, and having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, to later being very social and having lots of conversations, and finally having feelings of inner and outer equanimity.
January 26th is 3 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: taking action through releasing what no longer serves us, while the first quarter Moon harmonized with Venus and Neptune, and is challenged by the Sun which shifts from wanting to be with friends and the people we love, to later being very sensitive to the moods of others, and finally we encounter challenges to our daily routines.
The 27th is 4 - man-eek" : stability through being of service to others, as Venus enters Pisces which brings more awareness to the intuitive unseen realms inspiring spiritual and psychic experiences, but also brings the fog of illusion regarding love, romance, socializing and money. Also on the 27th the Taurus Moon harmonizes with Mars, is challenged by Mercury and Jupiter, and supported by Pluto. The days emotional energy moves from the desire to work independently from others, then our moods influencing our ability to think rationally, later feeling on a deeper more intense level under the influence of Pluto, and finally having benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment when the Moon interacts with Jupiter.
January 28th is 5 - Lamat "la-maught" or Star or Rabbit: empowerment through being grateful for abundant relationships, while Mercury sextiles Uranus, which brings new discoveries and new people into our lives with an overall sense of excitement and innovation as Mercury interacts with its higher octave planet Uranus. Flexibility is helpful to experience this transit with its excitement and interest. If you find this disruptive, you may want to examine your attitude regarding deviating from the preordained plan of the day. This is good for looking at old problems that have troubled you in the past with fresh eyes. Challenges may be approached as new puzzles to solve as thinking becomes more inspired. Not a day where you will be content to follow your usual routine, so leave some room for spontaneity with new ideas and experiences being the reward of going with the flow. Also on the 28th the Gemini Moon is challenged by Venus and opposed by Saturn, which moves from pleasant energy for being with the others we want to know better, to later feeling lonely and isolated.
The 29th is 6 - Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering: being in the flow through appreciating creation, with the Moon in Gemini challenged by Neptune, an Mars, supported by the Sun and Mercury, and in harmony with Uranus. This is a busy emotional day that shifts from bringing our dreams into the day's vibration, to feeling a sense of inner harmony which is mirrored in the outside world, then feeling in touch with our emotions and expressing them to others, later pleasant yet restless energy that desires emotional excitement, and finally people feeling irritable which could lead to needless disputes.
January 30th is 7 - Oc "awk" or Dog: reflection through enjoying family and friends, while Venus squares Saturn which can be a day of having difficulty relating to others, feeling cool, reserved, isolated... Many will be reevaluating what they are getting out of their relationships as compared to what they are putting in. If you feel loneliness or depression on the 30th, just realize that this too shall pass. Also on the 30th Mars sextiles Pluto bringing energy for reconstruction of our inner world, with a harmonic connection between the traditional and modern rulers of Scorpio and an alignment between planet octaves. Mars representing our desires and personal will and Pluto is the transcendent will of the Universe and the empowerment of the authentic self. A sextile between Mars and Pluto is good for making changes in our lives and to become more effective in changing the world around us. This can stimulate peoples' ambitions without others feeling threatened. With Pluto involved, the Martian ego gets sublimated so our efforts should be for the greater good or we will sow the seeds of our own self undoing. This may affect our plans as unforeseen changes are made that bring improvement over the original plan. Great energy to work with groups in moving toward a joint goal. Also on the 30th Sun conjuncts retrograde Mercury which prior to turning retrograde Mercury appears to be way out in front of the Sun, then retrogrades back to conjoin the Sun, and then falls behind the Sun. Prior to mechanized warfare Generals would send their cavalry ahead of the infantry to scout out the enemy's location, find possible resources, as well as the lay of the terrain to move the troops with maximum efficiency, safety and to their strategic advantage. I like to think of Mercury when it is stretching out in front of the Sun as gathering intelligence to report back to our consciousness' during its conjunction to the Sun. Using these two markers connected with a rubber band, I am hoping to illustrate this pattern. When Mercury, represented by the black marker, is in front of the Sun, represented by the red marker, it becomes easier to be overwhelmed by the increase in new information that seems to have no place to be deposited. This can increase our anxiety and the sense of losing control. As Mercury retrogrades the tension decreases until it merges with the Sun, which occurs on January 30th, finding the destination for the intelligence it has gathered. Once behind the Sun, Mercury feels as though it is creating drag that retards the possibility of implementing the new data until it regains forward motion in its pursuit of the Sun on February 11th. Also on the 30th with the Moon in Gemini in harmony with Jupiter which feeling in the flow and having a sense of wholeness.
The 31st is 8 - Chuen "shoe-in" or Monkey: balance through creating something new, while Mars conjuncts Chiron which merges the energy of aggression with the wounded healer. I'd expect people with feel more vulnerable as Mars pokes our past wounds, but being reminded of the wound can be beneficial for taking action towards healing. Also on the 31st the Cancer Moon finds support from Venus and Neptune which shifts from enjoying pleasant feelings and social interactions, to fantasies and daydreams distracting us from accomplishing routine tasks.
February 1st is 9 - Eb "eb" or Road: patience experienced through serving your community, with Venus conjunct Neptune brings a wave of spiritual inspiration to surf in February. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus, unconditional love merges with romantic love. I have these two in a tight conjunction in my natal chart, which I've realized has influenced me to never stop loving any of my past partners regardless of how the relation ended. For me this aspect is life long, but it will influence all of us for a few days. The peak of this experience is about spirituality through love, compassion, and selflessness. The sense of a union of souls with another, or on the other side disappointment with a loved one for not meeting our expectations even the unrealistic ones. Daydreaming is common under this transit which may be a needed escape from reality, just remain aware of your surroundings. This does not favor practical thoughts, so you should probably delay decisions or actions that require good judgment particularly related to relationships or money. One of the best uses of this energy is creative or artistic work making the ideal real. Also on the 1st the Moon in Cancer is challenged by Uranus, opposed by Pluto, and supported by Mars. The day begins with folks acting hasty and jumping to conclusions that may not be correct, then later brings deep emotions rising to the surface, and finally feeling a little more confident than usual with the ability to assert ourselves in a positive manner.
The 2nd is 10 - Ben "ben" or Reed or Corn: manifestation through maintaining the home, while the Sun sextiles Uranus makes the day more interesting, from our encounters with others being more illuminating, to enlightened experiences while moving through our normal routine. This stimulates our curiosity and imaginations. Folks are quick witted and conversations are lively, but they also may be less tolerant of any restrictions. Under this influence it's more important to be true to your authentic individual self, than meeting other people's expectations. Also on the 2nd the Leo Moon finds support from Saturn which brings the energy to settle into a more sober and realistic view of life.
February 3rd is 11 - Ix "eesh" or Jaguar: resolution through enjoying nature, when we have the Leo Full Moon with the moon at 14 degrees 48 minutes Leo, opposed by the Sun and Mercury, supported by Uranus and merging with Jupiter. This is about finding balance between our social consciousness (Sun in Aquarius) and being happy, creative, and having fun (Moon in Leo) with Mercury bringing some folks a real conflict between feelings and reason and others having fruitful expressions of their deeper awareness either internally or with another. Uranus’ influence brings the impulse to engage in activities that make us feel more alive, and Jupiter brings good feelings and generosity towards others.
The 4th is 12 - Men "men" or Eagle: understanding through seeing from a higher perspective, while the Moon in Leo merged with Jupiter brings energy for generous feelings.
February 5th is 13 - Cib "keeb" or Wisdom: movement to the next stage through introspection, meditation and forgiveness, while Mercury sextiles Saturn which is great for constructive criticism that comes from being able to see what can be improved in our surrounding environment. We are very conscious of flaws, including our own, so we can use our critical eye to what should be changed to bring improvement. This can be very serious in its pursuit of betterment, make sure your honoring what is positive, so not to get overwhelmed by the many imperfections that are in view with this transit. Older people may serve as teachers and mentors at this time. This is nice energy for working carefully on any mental task from a place of concentration and precision, whereas activities that require a great scope of vision may be more difficult. This is about the details, rather than the overall pattern. Difficulty seeing the forest for the trees. Also on the 5th the Virgo Moon challenged by Jupiter and opposed by Neptune which moves from having benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment, to later feeling sensitive emotionally but confused regarding the accuracy of what's being felt.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Seed trecena, take some time to be in the flow of the planet by being in nature, watching a sunrise or sunset, communing with the stars, being conscious of the moment through introspection, meditation or being with someone you love. Every day is a blessing no matter what dramas beckon to distract us. We are all giving the performance of a life time on this world stage, just take some time to observe the play as well as act your part. Remember you are a spiritual being having a human experience.
