This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of January 10th 2016 and 1 – Men "men" or Eagle in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with the Sun entering Aquarius.
January 10th is 1 – Men "men" or Eagle with the themes of higher perspective, keen vision, free spirit, messenger of faith and knowledge, patience, wings of the spirit, value, manifestation of fertility, knowing the details, dualities of the Sun and Moon, the budding youth and the wise elder, male and female, the soaring eagle and the fallen eagle, the messenger between heaven and earth. It also represents luck, hope, liberty, trust, good fortune and good relationships. Eagles have the quality of being able to observe movements from a great distance. The 1 Eagle thirteen day period could be used to gain greater perspectives about the events in our lives through creating some distance between the observer and the observed. Having Mercury and Jupiter retrograde during this trecena supports many of the eagle themes of patience with regards to faith and knowledge.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 – Men "men" or Eagle, on the 10th all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth, except 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 turned retrograde January 5th and turns direct on the 25th, so this 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. When looking at a retrograde cycle of any of the personal or inner planets, it provides information about a correction to our present course. Jupiter was the king of the gods, and the planet is about good fortune, opportunities, faith, religion, beliefs and expansion. Jupiter is in Virgo and Virgo is about organization, health, and service. 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 10th is 1 – Men "men" or Eagle: unity experienced through seeing from a higher perspective in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, while the Moon is supported by Jupiter, merges with Mercury, and is challenged by Mars, which influences peoples' emotions as the shift from feelings of inner and outer equanimity, to having positive energy for integrating our thoughts and moods, and finally people feeling irritable which could lead to needless disputes.
The 11th is 2 – Cib "keeb" or Wisdom: duality experienced through introspection, meditation and forgiveness, with the Aquarius Moon in harmony with Saturn, Venus, and Uranus, which moves from wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings, followed by having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones, and finally pleasant yet restless energy that desires emotional excitement.
January 12th is 3 – Caban "kah-ban" or Earth: taking action through gratitude for Mother Earth, while Venus trine Uranus which wants social experiences and romantic encounters to be outside the norm, unusual, and surprising. This is a great day to try something out of the ordinary. The daily routine will just not cut it under this influence. Folks are looking to do something stimulating in their social lives and relationships. A day when there may be unique encounters and love relationships that begin under this influence are exciting, electric, unstable and short, but have a strong potential to change our lives. Experiencing different types of entertainment is also favored by this transit, by enjoying music, art, or theater that is outside your normal choices. Also on the 12th the Moon in Aquarius makes no angles and is void of course until moving into Pisces, which does not favor major decisions or purchases, but is good to use for resting to assimilate this latest round of energy and experiences.
The 13th is 4 – Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint: stability through being introspective, while the Sun trines Jupiter, which is one of the most positive transits bringing enthusiasm and optimism, it can have the effect of people feeling lazy, but I would encourage folks to use this energy to accomplish something good for yourself. This is a day to project positive energy into the environment that can have some influence on your affairs and accomplishing something you desire. Some will see this as "dumb luck", but this transit has its roots in something that was done in the recent past. This is great energy for making changes in your life without feeling a sense of loss. This is also good for studying something of interest to you, particularly subjects that help us to see the world as a whole. Also on the 13th the Pisces Moon finds support from Mars, merges with Neptune, is challenged by Saturn, and harmonizes with Pluto, which shifts from feeling a little more confident than usual with the ability to assert ourselves in a positive manner, to later feelings of empathy for those around us, including the possibility of clairvoyance and telepathic experiences for those of us who are sensitive by nature, followed by people feeling lonely or isolated, and finally experiencing deep emotions on a profound level.
January 14th is 5 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm: empowerment through recognizing the gifts in adversity, while the 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 14th, 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 January 25th. Also on the 14th Mercury trine Jupiter is great energy for making plans for the future from an overview perspective. This transit does influence us to take the easy way out and avoid difficult intellectual and mental problems. Mercury supported by Jupiter is good for business dealings and signing contracts, as we find our minds are sharper to see opportunities that normally are overlooked. This is optimistic and promotes positive thinking and studying subjects that deal with high level thought such as law, philosophy, religion. Jupiter’s influence on Mercury brings open mindedness and positive communication to reach a greater understanding. Also on the 14th Venus squares Chiron which could make us aware of our wounds and old emotions regarding how we relate to others and/or what we value. Also on the 14th the Moon in Pisces is challenges by Venus, opposed by Jupiter, and in harmony with Mercury and the Sun, which moves from having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones, to later feelings of generosity, followed by people feeling chatty and having numerous conservations, and finally feeling balance between our inner and outer worlds.
The 15th is 6 – Ahau "ah-how" or Sun: being in the flow through honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors, while the Aries Moon finds support from Saturn which has people settle into a more sober and realistic view of life.
January 16th is 7 – Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: reflection through nurturing new beginnings, while first quarter Moon in Aries is challenged by Pluto, Mercury, and the Sun, merging with Uranus, and supported by Venus. A busy day for emotional influences that begins with having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, then shifts to people feeling impulsive and acting rashly, with moods changing quickly and unexpectedly, followed by enjoying pleasant feelings and social interactions, to later our moods influencing our ability to think rationally, and finally brings challenges to following a daily routine.
The 17th is 8 Ik "eek" or Wind: balance through communication, while Taurus Moon is opposed by Mars, and in harmony with Neptune, which moves from people being more excitable and irritable which can cause problems in our personal lives, followed by a greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open.
January 18th is 9 – Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: patience experienced through contemplating the stars, while Venus squares Jupiter is another great transit. The energy of this square is usually agreeable, in that folks feel good and enjoy social interactions. A great day for doing something you enjoy, not so good for doing something you have to do, as it is low for self discipline. It's tough on dieters, because people may feel the urge to indulge in rich or sweet foods, with a caution about eating and drinking too much under this influence. This also applies to shopping as we will have a tendency to overspend on non essentials. Also on the 18th Mars trine Neptune which is good for using our energy in activities that benefit others rather than helping ourselves. This can also inspire us to seek spiritual knowledge about how we relate to others and the universe. Neptune balances the usual high physical energy that we normally have with a Mars transit, and actually may leave us feeling like doing very little. This makes us more conscious of the needs and wants of others. This is a good time to look at our lives and the world more objectively, without judgment, due to Neptune softening Mars' desires with detachment. Folks are more likely to do charitable work with poor or disadvantaged people, with a caution against seeing yourself as a savior to those who are worse off. This transit favors spiritual practices, creativity, and compassion. Also on the 18th the Moon in Taurus finds support from Pluto, Mercury and Jupiter which shifts from feeling on a deeper more intense level under the influence of Pluto, to later being more in touch with our feelings and able to share them with others, and finally people having a pleasant sense of wellbeing.
The 19th is 10 – Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: manifestation through planting seeds and making new connections, while Mercury sextile Chiron is harmonious energy for reaching a deeper understanding of healing old wounds, which will eventually grow into wisdom. Also on the 19th the Moon is supported by the Sun and challenged by Neptune which moves from having a sense of harmony within ourselves and supports any type of group activity and relationships with the opposite sex, to daydreams and fantasies feeling more important than reality.
January 20th is 11 – Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: resolution through being flexible, with the Sun enters Aquarius, which shifts the focus to social consciousness, while being true to our individuality to share our inventive ideas with groups and communities. This is a future oriented sign of innovation which often comes from being unorthodox in thinking. Also on the 20th Mercury in Capricorn is challenged by Uranus in Aries which is a stressful alignment that pits the traditional thinking against rebellious new views. Since the outer planets tend to have more power, I believe that any rigid conservative ideas will be attacked, and transformed or released to make way for more innovative concepts, but of course Uranus is unpredictable so anything could happen. And with Mercury retrograde thinking is likely to be moving in reverse. This could also be a time of increased protests with potential recklessness and violence. Personally, this can be quite stimulating bringing fascination for new phenomenon. Flexibility is the key with this transit, because the more rigid our thinking the more nerve wracking the effect. Expect the unexpected, surprises and upsets, and you will have the best chance to go with the flow, which may mean that plans for the day do not work out as expected. Epiphanies are more likely, so you may want to capture your genius thoughts in some form of record keeping, to reexamine in the days that follow. The pace is fast which can lead to sloppiness. A day to be careful of making sudden unexpected moves as accidents are more likely under this influence. Also on the 20th the Gemini Moon is opposed by Saturn, stimulated by Uranus, and challenged by Jupiter which changes from feeling lonely and isolated, followed by pleasant yet restless feelings craving emotional excitement to do something outside the daily routine, and finally benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment.
The 21st is 12 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: understanding through releasing what no longer serves us, while the Moon is opposed by Venus and supported by Neptune which shifts from pleasant energy for enjoying sensual experiences and rich food with a caution against overindulgence, to later our innermost subconscious fantasies and daydreams confusing reality, which may not be great for accomplishing much work.
January 22nd is 13 – Manik "man-eek" or Deer: movement to the next stage through being of service to others, while Mercury conjuncts Pluto, which intensifies mental activity and a penetrating quality to communications along with having a critical eye for what needs to be transformed in our environment. On a mental level there is a penetrating quality to go deep in discovering the "truth" in which superficiality does not cut it. This also indicates a capacity to influence others, and to speak with a persuasive voice. People will present opinions as facts, believing they a right and the others is wrong. Be careful of who you engage with under this transit, as many with make statements with no regard for the feelings of the listener, which they may interpret as threatening. This can also bring more acute powers for penetrating analysis of human nature, which is best not shared without an invitation to do so. Let's not forget that this transit is effecting everyone so we are as likely to be the recipient of these behaviors from others, as being the perpetrator. Probably the best use of this transit is to get preoccupied with a project or idea that you work on independently from others and you wait to share until another day. While Mercury interacts with the departing Uranus Pluto square we may become aware of some area in our lives that need change or adjustment. Also on the 22nd the Cancer Moon finding support from Mars, opposed by Mercury and Pluto, and challenged by Uranus, which brings the energy for asserting ourselves in a positive manner and standing our ground if necessary, followed by some feeling a real conflict between feelings and reason and others having fruitful expressions of their deeper awareness either internally or with another, then later brings deep emotions rising to the surface, and finally people are likely to act hasty and jump to conclusions.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Eagle 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.
