Moonrise in a Season of Illusion


Today’s traditional Maya daysign is 10 Ajaw. This is the only occurrence of 10 Ajaw during the current 11 Storm Dreamspell year. The day 10 Ajaw will also mark the completion of the current piktun, 10 Ajaw, during an 11 Storm Dreamspell year, 53 solar-galactic cycles in the future.

As we know, the completion of the piktun opens an 8-day window that culminates in the “piktun coronation” on the day 5 Lamat (

Presently, the interval from 10 Ajaw to 5 Lamat during the current 11 Storm year corresponds to Dreamspell kin 186-194. This interval includes Pakal’s galactic return on kin 190, and, in the wave-harmonic of history, it also codes the 4 katuns of his life (kin 189-193), leading into the Seven Generations of Galactic Mayan Recall on kin 194.

This fractal interval of the Seven Generations will not only begin on the traditional day 5 Lamat, sign of Pakal’s accession, it will conclude with kin 200 on the solar return of Pakal’s birth.

Pakal’s coronation = 5 Lamat

Pakal’s birth = Moon 9 day 18

11 Storm year 54.29:
Piktun coronation = 5 Lamat traditional

11 Storm year 1.29:
Kin 194, Seven Generations begin = 5 Lamat traditional
Kin 200, Seven Generations complete = Moon 9 day 18

During this same upcoming Seven Generation interval, from Moon 9 days 12-18 of the current 11 Storm year, we will also have the following:

Moon 9 day 14 = Equinox

Moon 9 day 15 = Wajshakib Batz (8 Chuen) traditional ceremonies

Moon 9 day 16 = Galactic return of Bolon Ik’s ascension (Dreamspell kin 198)

Moon 9 day 17 = Solar return of Valum Votan’s ascension


Now note the harmonies of the Lovers’ Galactic Reunion:

This transmission was received today, 10 Ajaw during the 11 Storm year, which is coded by the daily Dreamspell kin 186, as well as the Psi-Chrono kin 115. In addition to being the piktun completion kin, 10 Ajaw, as kin 140, is the source of the Telektonon. The first Telektonon Lovers’ Reunion of Galactic Synchronization (Moon 1 day 23 of the 8 Seed year) was also kin 186.

186 = 6 x 31, and kin 31 = 5 Monkey = code 5:11. This is one of the primary keys to the recombinant triplet 115 151 511 of the Lovers’ Galactic Reunion. So note again today’s synchronizaton of the daily kin 186 (31 x 6) with Psi-Chrono kin 115.

Then we have the upcoming sequence of Wajshakib Batz, equivalent to 8 Monkey, kin 151, immediately followed by the galactic return of Bolon Ik’s ascension and the solar return of Valum Votan’s ascension.

This transmission was received today at the end of what has been one of the most strange, surreal and emotionally confused weeks of my entire life. This whole past year has been a major test for me — one thing after another; but when this current Blue Night Wavespell began it was like entering into a hall of funhouse mirrors. I’ve been questioning everything… Is my life anything other than a passing dream? A nightmare even? All this lovers’ reunion stuff, does it really mean anything? Or am I just caught in illusory webs of my own mind’s weaving? I still couldn’t tell you. The events as I’ve experienced them are almost too much to believe, and as of now my grasp on reality, or what “reality” even means anymore, is tenuous at best. It’s been grey and rainy for days and days. Dark and dreary, as though this winter of untold enchantments may have no end. And then today the sky cleared. The Sun shone. The promise of spring, yes, real spring, was in the air. I couldn’t appreciate it though; it didn’t fit my mood. But after work I willed myself out into the still damp yard and did some yoga, then walked down to the river. On the way I saw the Moon, almost full now after so many days behind the clouds, rising over the hills. The sky was a clean and pale blue. A songbird landed in the high bare branches of a tree. A hawk flew across the hillside of fir and maple. Gazing absently at the round Moon, I realized that through all the strange days of this waking life, through the human dramas we act out that now promise to fulfill us, that now threaten to consume us, our connection to the divinity of creation remains. We are all part of the unique expression that is life. Ultimately there is a place in the soul where we can find faith, even if it goes beyond words or concepts, even if it can be found nowhere “out there”.

I walked the rest of the way down to the river, full, muddy and wild with rainfall, and there they were, the harmonies, opening in my mind like a flower. And now I offer them here. Though perhaps they be no more than a fading dream, they give me something to look forward to. Somehow, in this world of illusion, they give me hope.

11 Storm year 1.29, Moon 9:

Day 4 = Today, 10 Ajaw traditional, Dreamspell kin 186, PCU kin 115

Day 8 = Dreamspell kin 190 (Galactic Love), Pakal’s galactic return

Day 12 = 5 Lamat traditional, Dreamspell kin 194

Day 14 = Equinox

Day 15 = Wajshakib Batz (8 Chuen) traditional ceremonies

Day 16 = Galactic return of Bolon Ik’s ascension (Dreamspell kin 198)

Day 17 = Solar return of Valum Votan’s ascension

Day 18 = Solar return of Pakal’s birth, Dreamspell kin 200

Holding the Vision of Galactic Harmony

The Great War Is Over (If You Want It)

Today is kin 173, and we have now reached one of the key synchronizations of the current 11 Storm year. Tomorrow, kin 174, a full (annular) solar eclipse will take place. And, as previous posts have shown, 260 days from now kin 173-174 will mark a further momentous synchronization involving the planets Jupiter and Venus, the Galactic Maya eclipse cycles, and the Red Book of C.G. Jung.

Ultimately, the importance of this information is that it gives us the opportunity to move beyond the unconscious historical impulses that gave rise to The Great War by tuning into the redemptive potential of the oncoming Love Moon phase of Galactic Synchronization.

The occurrence of the eclipse falling within the interval from kin 173 to 174 highlights the importance of the “eclipse half-year” of 173.31 days, which synchronizes with the tzolkin eclipse cycle of ~520 days.

173.31 x 3 = 520 = 260 x 2

It is due to this special cycle that so many key eclipses of Galactic Synchronization are coinciding with the transition from the Red Earth Wavespell of Synchronization to the White Dog Wavespell of Love, from kin 167 to 177 in particular:

Final full solar eclipse of the 13-baktun cycle = kin 169

+ 2 spins =

First full lunar eclipse of the new baktun = kin 167 (Blood Moon tetrad begins)

+ 2 spins =

Fourth and final eclipse of Blood Moon tetrad = kin 177

+ 2 spins =

Current eclipse = kin 174

+ 2 spins =

Love Moon eclipse = kin 170

The synchronization 1 spin from now, mentioned above, will not only take place midway between the current eclipse and the Love Moon eclipse, it will also coincide with the 5-year anniversary of the final full solar eclipse of the 13-baktun cycle.

Kin 169
Final full eclipse of 13-baktun cycle

+ 5 years =

Kin 174
Close conjunction of Venus & Jupiter
Solar-galactic return of Red Book base (kin 173-174)

Not only will this Venus/Jupiter/Red Book synchronization, one spin from now, mark 5 years from the final eclipse of the 13-baktun cycle, but the Red Book base itself, 2 solar-galactic cycles earlier, was followed 5 years later by the end of The Great War:

Red Book base = - kin 173 (“12/Nov. 1913”)
Plauged by previsions of The War, Jung begins writing The Red Book

WW1 Armistice = - kin 177 (11 Nov. 1918)
Peace declared on “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” — 11:11:11.

Not only did the end of The War coincide exactly with the final day of the 5 years that began with the Red Book base, but it also began 1 spin following the Red Book base:

Red Book base date = Moon 4 day 26, kin 173

+ 260 days =

Moon 1 day 5, kin 173 — WWI begins

(More precisely, a series of declarations of war took place from Moon 1 days 3-12, kin 171-180.)

This is very significant:
The Red Book base was 1 galactic spin before the beginning of The War, and 5 years before the end of The War. And now, the upcoming solar-galactic return of the Red Book base will mark the completion of 1 galactic spin from the current full solar eclipse, and the completion of 5 years from the final full solar eclipse of the 13-baktun cycle.

Furthermore, note that the upcoming Love Moon eclipse on kin 170 will take place just one day before the solar-galactic return of the beginning of The Great War. Or, in other words, the Love Moon eclipse will mark the final day of 104 years, 2 solar-galactic cycles, that began with the initiation of The War.

The more synchronized we become with the galactic harmonies of the eclipse cycles and the Lovers’ Reunion, the more we are fulfilling our role as Earth Wizards to release and redeem the negative feedback loops of history. With such anxiety, tension and agression building in our world, it’s more important than ever that we allow the love and harmony of the galactic order to arise within our hearts and minds, to radiate outward in ever expanding waves of peace and compassion. It’s a turbulent ride on this Timeship Earth, so let go, give thanks, stay present, and don’t forget to breathe.


Additional considerations:

My previous posts have identified the current moon, Moon 8 of the 11 Storm year, as a highly activated nexus of synchronization. Now that we’re here I’ve been coming across all sorts of little synchronic treasures, but just haven’t had the opportunity to put them into writing. Much of it goes into the realms of my own personal experience anyway, so hopefully kin are exploring and uncovering things for themselves; it’s all quite amazing. Given my past work with kin 168 and 169, I was especially interested to find them waiting there right in the middle of the moon on days 14 and 15 ( kin 168 and kin 169). Also, the moon’s PCU’s, which always lend such energy to Moon 8, add that much more resonance — worth looking into!

And, since I’ve previously pointed to the importance of Jupiter to the present moon, chiefly involving its conjunction with Spica, I was excited to learn that Mars and Uranus are also joining the party. On the day of the eclipse, tomorrow, kin 174, Mars and Uranus will be conjunct one another. (Mars is currently visible in the evening skies, near a very bright Venus.) Then, the next day, on kin 175, Mars and Jupiter will reach opposition to one another. And then, on kin 178 Jupiter and Uranus will reach opposition. So essentially, the present kin 174 eclipse (alignment of Sun, Earth, and Moon) will coincide with an alignment of Mars & Uranus, Earth, and Jupiter, Spica & Arcturus. Then, Jupiter and Venus will reach close conjunction 1 spin later…

There’s more, so much more, but it will have to wait for another day.

Happy surfing, and galactic blessings to all! May peace prevail on Earth!

Piktun Eclipse Zuvuya

Today and the next couple days are especially resonant with future zuvuya circuits involving the Galactic Mayan eclipse cycles. If you don’t fully understand this information or what I’ve written previously, don’t worry about it. These posts are intended to function as milestone markers and foundations for future explorations. As you track the cycles yourself you will begin to see the patterns as they come into focus, and the way from milestone to milestone will become familiar with time. (Again, this information will carry much more meaning for those who have already explored the archives.)

Here are some basic considerations relevant to the present moment:

The completion of the current piktun on 10 Ajaw will coincide with Dreamspell kin 38 during an 11 Storm year, 53 solar galactic cycles from the present 11 Storm year.

According to a careful astronomical calculation, the piktun completion might more accurrately coincide with kin 39 or 40, giving us the “warning station” window of kin 38-40.

The piktun coronation, 8 days later on, will be the traditional day 5 Lamat, equivalent to kin 148. During the 11 Storm year of the piktun coronation a full solar eclipse will take place on or around Dreamspell kin 148. This “warning station” of kin 146-148 corresponds to Moon 7 days 20-22 of an 11 Storm year. Today is kin 146 on Moon 7 day 20 of the 11 Storm year, meaning that the first full solar eclipse of the next piktun will be coming into alignment precisely 53 solar galactic cycles from now. kin 146 = today
+ 53 SGCs = kin 146 = piktun eclipse “warning station” begins

This warning station is also in resonance with a total lunar eclipse that will take place one year from now. kin 148 = piktun eclipse “warning station” 53 SGC resonance
+ 1 year = kin 253 = total lunar eclipse

The piktun eclipse warning station of Moon 7 day 20-22 begins 39 days following the southern solstice (Moon 6 day 9). Currently the southern solstice Sun aligns with the center of the Milky Way galaxy, and between now and the completion of the current piktun this alignment will shift by approximately 39 days due to precession. This means that the first full solar eclipse of the current piktun will be in alignment with the center of the galaxy, with the sun in the same sidereal position as it was at the completion of the 13 baktun cycle (2012 AD).

The final full solar eclipse of the 13 baktun cycle took place 38 days before the completion of the baktun, and the first full solar eclipse of Baktun 8 also took place at this same sidereal position, approximately 38 days before the galactic alignment.

There is a very special relationship of Baktun 8, Baktun 13, and the piktun (Baktun 20), to one another based on these eclipse patterns. The completion of 8 baktuns is synchronized to the traditional day 9 Ajaw ( 9 Ajaw), and today is 9 Ajaw traditional, also inscribed on the key Temple XIV table.

The total lunar eclipse that will occur one year from now will be the first full lunar eclipse since the completion of the Blood Moon lunar tetrad, and will mark our full entry into the Love Moon phase of galactic synchronization.

The close conjunction of Jupiter and Spica is now visible in the early morning. Providing a nice symmetry, Venus and Mars are visible nearby one another in the evening. The Venus/Mars conjunction will be joined by the crescent moon two days from now, on kin 148, exactly one year before the full lunar eclipse.


Through the Aion by Starlight


This series of posts has covered a lot of ground and this should probably be the last one for a while.  So, I’m just gonna cram as much of the most important stuff into the little time here I have to write this.  And I’ll warn you now that this post will make a lot more sense, if any, for those who have read the previous entries. Here they are in order:

Also, I started writing this yesterday, thinking I would finish it up for Moon 4 day 26. But life does tend to happen and it’s coming out today on Moon 4 day 27 instead. So I might refer to both days as “today”, but don’t let it confuse you too much, because for our purposes it’s actually kind of helpful to think of these two days, along with the numbers 173 and 174, as one cohesive unit. kin 68

Today is Moon 4 day 26. It was 103 years ago on the night of Moon 4 day 26 of the 12 Seed year -2.30 that Carl Gustav Jung made the first record of what was to become his Red Book. After suffering from visions of catastrophe over the previous month, Jung picked up an old abandoned journal, put the date “12/Nov. 1913” at the top of a blank page, and began a dialogue with his “almost forgotten soul”:

My soul, my soul, where are you? Do you hear me? I speak, I call you–are you there? I have returned, I am here again. I have shaken the dust of all the lands from my feet, and I have come to you, I am with you. After long years of long wandering, I have come to you again….

Do you still know me? How long the separation lasted! Everything has become so different. And how did I find you? How strange my journey was! What words should I use to tell you on what twisted paths a good star has guided me to you? Give me your hand, my almost forgotten soul. How warm the joy at seeing you again, you long disavowed soul. Life has led me back to you. … My soul, my journey should continue with you.

(To see a photograph of this journal entry check out “The Hermeneutics of Vision: C.G. Jung and Liber Novus” by Lance S. Owens.)

Over the next 5 years Jung became immersed in the creation of his Red Book, and these 5 years happened to coincide with World War I, also known simply as “The Great War”.

The impact of The Great War on the collective psyche was enormous, and gave rise to a “great disillusionment”. The idealism of the pre-War era is hard for people in the postmodern age to understand; but before The War it was a widely held belief that progress and science were about to bring about a perfect world-wide utopia, and The War utterly shattered that idea. Soon enough the holocausts of World War II were added onto the 20th century nightmare; and what passes for idealistic progressivism today is a mere remnant of the ante-bellum.

Amazingly, the date of Jung’s first entry in the journal, which I will take the liberty of calling the Red Book base date, was one galactic spin before the outbreak of war, when a series of declarations between a number of nations took place from July 28 to August 6 of 1914.

Red Book base date = Moon 4 day 26, kin 173

+ 260 days =

Moon 1 day 5, kin 173 — WWI begins (Moon 1 days 3-12, kin 171-180)

One year from today will be the second solar-galactic return of the Red Book base, exactly 104 (= 52 x 2) years from Jung’s journal entry of November 12, 1913. According to the people that study this stuff, Jung was doing his journaling at night, very probably around or after midnight; so we can include the energy of the next day, November 13, kin 174, into consideration as well. So, one year from now the solar-galactic return of the Red Book base will also coincide with the 5th solar return of the important final full solar eclipse of the 13-baktun cycle.

This introduces an important overtone fractal of 5 to the equation. Amazingly The Red Book base, November 12, 1913, is also the first day of 5 years ending on November 11, 1918, the day of the WW1 Armistice (11/11). This does seem to confirm Jung’s intuition that his visions were a prevision of the war!

The overtone fractal of 5 first takes us back 5 baktuns from Baktun 13 to the beginning of Baktun 8. As shown previously the eclipse cycles of Baktun 8 and Baktun 13 have strong resonances between each other that are coded into the Mayan Codex Moon base, and the final full solar eclipse of the 13-baktun cycle was a sort of galactic replay of the first full solar eclipse of Baktun 8; both took place around 38-days before “Galactic Alignment”:

Final full solar eclipse of 13-baktun cycle = Moon 4 day 27, kin 169

+ 38 days = 4 Ajaw 3 K’ank’in Galactic Alignment = Moon 6 day 9, kin 207

The 5 baktuns from 9 Ajaw to 4 Ajaw are approximately equal to 38 calendar rounds, or 38 solar-galactic cycles. In fact, we are currently living through the 38th 7 Kawak haab year since the year of the 8-baktun shift. One key facet of the 8-baktun shift is that it took place during a year in which the first day of the Dreamspell year and the first day of the 7 Kawak haab year both took place on the same day.

12 Seed Gateway - = 7 Kawak haab seating

12 Seed year -38.30 = baktun shift
+ 5 baktuns
= baktun shift

12 Seed year -38.30
+ 38 solar-galactic cycles
= upcoming 12 Seed year

We know that the Red Book base also took place during a 12 Seed year.  Furthermore, it was also 5 katuns before the 13-baktun shift; and the difference between the year 7 Kawak and 12 Seed is one of both 5 years, and also 5 days:

7 Kawak seating
+ 5 haab
= 12 K’an (12 Seed) seating

7 Kawak
+ 5 days
= 12 K’an

7 Storm year
+ 5 years
= 12 Seed year

Kin 59 + 5 days = Kin 64

Another important resonance: Jung turned 38 years old on the first day of the 12 Seed year -2.30:

12 Seed Gateway -
+ 36 SGCs =
12 Seed Gateway - = C.G. Jung’s 38th solar return

So we have 5 baktuns from Baktun 8 to Baktun 13 — approximately 38 SGCs.

We have 5 katuns from Jung’s Red Book initiation at age 38 to the completion of 13 baktuns.

We have 5 years from the Red Book base to the sacred Armistice 11:11:11.

We have 5 years from the final full solar eclipse of the 13-bakun cycle to the solar-galactic return of the Red Book base.

And we have 5 days/years from kin 59 (7 Storm) to 64 (12 Seed), and from 169 to 174.

Remember, not only does this match the Dresden Codex eclipse base, but also the 5-year 13 Moon alamanac of the Paris Codex. kin 69

The 5 baktuns from to is approximately equivalent to the current astrological age of Pisces — the Christian era. The psychological significance of this era was a chief concern of Jung’s, perhaps most directly expressed in his book Aion.

The 5 katuns is approximately equivalent to the 20th century, the darkest depths of the Piscean era, defined by holocaust, materialism, and wholesale desecration of the biosphere.

The 5 years is approximately equivalent to The Great War, with fractal equivalence to the five years from the final full solar eclipse of the 13-baktuns to the solar-galactic return of the Red Book base.

The 5 days is the base fractal from kin 59 to 64, in common resonance with kin 169-174.

For the 38:

38 calendar rounds is approximately equivalent to the 5 baktuns.

38 years was C.G. Jung’s age on the first day of the 12 Seed year -2.30.

38 days is the approximate sidereal drift from Baktun 13 to the piktun (20 baktuns).

38 days was the interval from the final full solar eclipse of the 13 baktuns to the zero date 4 Ajaw 3 K’ank’in (southern solstice).

The first full solar eclipse following the completion of the piktun (20 baktuns) will take place approximately 38 days following the southern solstice.

The completion of the piktun will coincide with Dreamspell kin 38.

We are technically still within the Piscean age, although that definition is based on Mediterranean astrology, and the upcoming “age of Aquarius” is likely to emphasize other interpretive frameworks (such as the Galactic Maya cycles), ultimately rendering the boundary somewhat indefinite. It’s safe to say, however, that by the long count date we should be well through the age of Pisces and into the next Aion.

As shown previously, this long-count date is not only the maximum fractal harmonic of Baktun 13, it also has a special relationship to the completion of the piktun.

Furthermore, the daysign is 4 Ben, equivalent to kin 173: 4 Ben (kin 173)

The first day of the current 11 Storm year (1.29) was also 4 Ben traditional.

The current 11 Storm year (1.29) will bring a full (annular) solar eclipse on kin 174.

The Red Book base date, November 12, 1913 is kin 173.

The final galactic spin to the solar-galactic return of the Red Book base date will begin later this 11 Storm year on kin 174, coinciding with the full solar eclipse, and will come to completion on kin 173, one day before the 5th solar return of the 13-baktun eclipse on kin 174.

Amazingly, this same 5-year return on kin 174, one year from now, will occasion a close conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, the first such close conjunction since the one that took place earlier this year on kin 251. (The importance of this has been covered in the previous post Day 93 and the Wanderers’ Dance.)

The Red Book is hooked up with all of this!

It’s also interesting to note that the inscription at Yaxchilan that alludes to the long count date includes images of Dwarves, associated with the supernatural realm in Mayan art. Dwarves also feature prominently in the work of Tolkien, as we all know; and the “decisive step” in Jung’s early experience with the Red Book involved an encounter with a Dwarf in a very Tolkien-like setting.

Jung’s Red Book was released during the most recent 4 Seed year (1.22), the year before the 13-baktun eclipse cycles began to come into full resonance. (See the old essay “The Full Lunar Eclipse of the Southern Solstice 2010“.) So the collective mind was beginning to download and process the implications of the Red Book just as the tzolkin was coming into perfect alignment with the Mayan codex Moon base.

The upcoming solar-galactic return of the Red Book base will take place a year from now during Moon kin 004, equivalent to the 4 Seed year of its release. The birth of Palenque’s Ux Lut K’uh also took place at this same time of year during a 4 Seed year. And, in the year of the Mayan codex Moon base, Dreamspell kin 004 was right in the harmonic window with kin 001:

Mayan Codex Moon base 12 Lamat
= Moon 4 day 24, Dreamspell kin 001

+ 3 days = Moon 4 day 27, Dreamspell kin 004

The Mayan Codex Moon base — 12 Lamat and Red Magnetic Dragon — finds strong resonance with an image of a Red Dragon and a yellow “Lamat” star from Jung’s Red Book:


Art by C.G. Jung

The Dragon image also connects with the art of Tolkien:


Art by J.R.R. Tolkien

And also with the Dresden codex:


Dresden Codex final page

Note that the image of the Dragon of The Flood in the Dresden codex includes glyphs that denote an eclipse of the Sun and Moon. In Vedic astrology the lunar nodes, which define where eclipses may occur, are known as the Dragon’s head (ascending node) and the Dragon’s tail (descending node). The lunar nodes also define the length of the “lunar half-year”, which is 173.31 days, in harmonic resonance with the 260-day tzolkin:

Lunar half-year = 173.31 days
173.31 x 3 = 520 days = 260 x 2

The final eclipse of 13 baktuns took place on kin 169 during Baha’i year 169. The current year, during which a full solar eclipse will take place on kin 174, is Baha’i year 173; and the solar-galactic return of the Red Book base will be Baha’i year 174. So we see the Baha’i are also involved with the Overtone fractal 5 frequency (169 + 5 = 174). What’s more, the Red Book base and the birth of Baha’u’llah both correspond to Moon 4 day 26, meaning that the observation of the Birth of Baha’u’llah for the Baha’i year 174 will take place on kin 173, the solar-galactic return of the Red Book base.

Red Book base = Moon 4 day 26
Birth of Baha’u’llah = Moon 4 day 26

Baha’i year 173 = eclipse on kin 174
Baha’i year 174 = Birth of Bahau’ll’ah on kin 173 = Red Book base SG return

As discussed in the last post, we are currently in the process of the karmic redemption of the Wavespell of the Star. The Star Wavespell corresponds to the thirteen moons of the current 11 Storm year; we are currently in Moon kin 251, the kin 174 eclipse will take place during Moon kin 255 (also coinciding with the the Jupiter station at Spica), and the year will come to a conclusion with Moon kin 260.

In the 11 Storm year 54.29, during which the piktun will come to completion, the full solar eclipse that takes place around 38 days after the solstice will coincide with the traditional day 13 Manik, equivalent to kin 247, the transcendence into the Wavespell of the Star.

As we know, Tolkien has a strong connection to these patterns through his galactic signature, (kin 255) and mystical connection to the number 251, and his connection to the Galactic Maya involves his character Olorin, the Istar Maia (known more commonly as Gandalf). In his own Red Book, C.G. Jung encounters a similar character known as Philemon. The night of Jung’s first encounter with Philemon was January 27, 1914, Dreamspell kin 249, the Lunar tone of the Star Wavespell. This Philemon encounter also happened to take place at the same time of year as will the piktun eclipse:

Piktun eclipse = 13 Manik, kin 247 = Moon 7 day 19-21

First Philemon encounter = Dreamspell kin 249, Moon 7 day 18

The Star Wavespell is also related to the depths of the Aion, since according to the Wave Harmonic of History the Star Wavespell corresponds to the darkest depths of the 13-baktun cycle. The importance of this interval from around to is one of the main themes of the work of Valum Votan, from The Transformative Vision, to The Mayan Factor, to Dreamspell. The Red Book visions of Jung and Tolkien began around 5 katuns before the completion of this 13-katun interval. According to the fractal overtone this corresponds to the 5 baktuns from to

Tone 8 of the Star Wavespell is kin 255, the Eagle sign of Tolkien. The 13th tone is the sign of another imaginative wizard of the age, one Albert Einstein, kin 260, who introduced 4-dimensional awareness into the mass consciousness.

Amazingly, the ultimate eclipse of the Newtonian universe by Einstein’s Relativity is also related to these same patterns. The first imperical confirmation of Einstein’s Relativity came from the results of observations taken during a total solar eclipse, and were announced on a very interesting day — Moon 4 day 22, kin 19. This was approximately 1 year after the WWI Peace Armistice, which took place on Moon 4 day 25 (11/11) of the previous year. The Relativity eclipse and announcement took place during the year 1919 AD on November 8 — 11/8/1919. Note the double 19 in the year 1919, and that 11 + 8 = 19. It was also exactly one galactic spin before the beginning of the Kin 19 Dreamspell year. Not only did the announcement directly involve the observation of an eclipse, it took place the day after a partial lunar eclipse; and during the following Kin 19 year an eclipse took place on the solar return of the Mayan codex Moon cycle base (Moon 4 day 24).

So the intial 5-year Red Book cycle ended with the Armistice on “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month”, when the 11:11:11 cube code was planted into the collective consciousness as a peace frequency. Then, the next year, the eclipse of the Newtonian universe by the 4-dimensional consciousness of Einstein’s Relativity coded the cube 19:19:19. All in resonance with the Mayan Codex Moon base, the long count eclipse intervals, and perhaps most strongly of all, the Temple XIV tablet (…).

One more key event to consider is the total lunar eclipse that will take place on Moon 7 day 22 of the upcoming 12 Seed year.

12 Seed year total lunar eclipse = kin 253, Moon 7 day 22

Piktun eclipse = 13 Manik, kin 247 = Moon 7 day 19-21

Philemon encounter = Dreamspell kin 249, Moon 7 day 18

During the current 11 Storm year this same time of year will coincide with the beginning of Jupiter’s stationary position at Spica. (The first conjunction between the two luminaries will take place on Moon 7 day 11.)

13 Manik – Piktun eclipse
Kin 248 – Star Wavespell initiation
Kin 249 – first appearance of Philemon
Kin 251 – Tolkien mystic number (& current moon)
Kin 252 – Pleiadian eclipse 6 Wizard year (11:19)
Kin 253 – Upcoming eclipse 12 Seed year
Kin 255 – Tolkien
Kin 260 – Einstein

Tolkien and the Galactic Maya kin 65 : 6 Kawak


As covered in the previous post, “Radiant Spica, The Red Books, and Visions of The Flood“, in the 1940s J.R.R Tolkien wrote an experimental time-travel story, The Notion Club Papers, that contains a number of clear connections to Galactic Synchronization, and the years 2012 and 1987 in particular. The significance of these two years should be familiar to anyone with a even a passing familiarity with the Harmonic Convergence (1987) and the Mayan long count calendar (2012). That, however, is really just the beginning, and this post will take us through some of the more outstanding details of Tolkien’s Galactic Mayan connection.

It should be noted from the outset that The Notion Club Papers was never brought to completion, and there exist a number of drafts that differ from one another in various aspects. In his editorial presentation of the Papers, Christopher Tolkien discusses these drafts in detail and presents portions of some of the variants in addition to the entire extant text of the most highly developed and polished version.

The subtitle of these early drafts is Out of the Talkative Planet, which in itself suggests a connection to galactic synchronization, being that its prophetic source, the Telektonon, is known as the “Earth Spirit Speaking Tube”, or “The Talking Stone of Prophecy”.

The Papers are divided into two main sections, the first part, “The Ramblings of Ramer”, has to do with techniques of time-space travel, while the second part, “The Strange Case of Arundel Lowdham”, gets more deeply into events that touch on synchronicity and reincarnation, or, putting it more accurately, inter-generational cosmic memory.


The Ramblings of Ramer and SN1987A

Part One suggests aspects of galactic awakening presented in Valum’s one-of-a-kind booklet The 260 Postulates of the Dynamics of Time and the Evolution of Time as Consciousness. On a basic level, both the Papers and The 260 Postulates are concerned with the development of methods for extending the mind consciously through time and space. In both cases, this is not done through the usual sci-fi tropes of spaceships or mechanistic time-machines, but through something more akin to focused dreaming, or what C.G. Jung might call “active imagination”.

So I tried various experiments, on myself; various forms of training. It’s difficult to concentrate, chiefly because it’s difficult to get quiet enough. The body makes such a noise itself, quite apart from the din of sensations coming from the outside. I wanted to discover if my mind had any power, any trainable latent power, to inspect and become aware of the memory or record in other things, that would be in them anyway, even if not inspectable by me. For, I suppose, what we call memory, human memory, is both the power to inspect and be aware of the record within us, and the record that would be there anyway.
– Michael Ramer (Sauron Defeated p. 180)

All the same, I used to get at that time very extraordinary geometric patterns presented to me, shifting kaleidoscopically but not blurred; and queer webs and tissues too. And other non-visual impressions also, very difficult to describe; some like rhythms, almost like music; and throbs and stresses.
– Ramer (p.181)


Mandala – Art by J.R.R. Tolkien

[T]he telepathic creation of vehicles of time transport will evolve from exercises in sensory teleportation and the elaboration of celestial harmonics to actual whole body time transport as applied radiative projective geometries.
– Valum Votan, The 260 Postulates, Introduction

All time transport vehicles are mentally projected constructs of radiative geometry bodies utilizing crystal or floral structures, coordinated according to sets of time vector potentialities. Initially all time travel occurs as a type of focused imaginative exploration — sensory teleportation — using celestial harmonic coordinates of time vector potentialities.
– Postulate 12.4.


Mandala – Art by Jose Arguelles (Valum Votan)


Mandala from C.G. Jung’s Red Book

The 260 Postulates relates these abilities to two primary factors. The first factor is the “discovery of the Law of Time”, which was the realization of the qualitative difference between the natural 13:20 timing frequency and the artificial 12:60 frequency of mechanical time. This was made conscious by Valum and Bolon Ik near the end of 1989, and was developed into the interactive Dreamspell game in 1990. The other factor is “the excitation of stellar mass”, which refers to the phenomena of supernova, and to the Supernova 1987A in particular, which Valum cited as having planted the seeds of the Dreamspell in the collective consciousness.

The ejection of radiative thermic-luminic properties at supernova excitation is a correlate function of a higher meditational program of the Galactic Federation. This meditational program is coordinated by the pilot angel program of the intelligence originally evolved by the stellar mass on its trajectory toward becoming a supernova.
– Postulate 18.1

The point of meditational concentration of the pilot angel program with the final explosion of stellar mass into self-radiatively disintegrating supernova, subliminally marks the simultaneous ejection of the pilot program into parallel universes or other galactic brains.
– Postulate 18.2

Buddha or mahabodhisattvas are pilot angelic soul boat projections of pure mind ejected at peak moment of excitation of supernova into previously targeted parallel world systems.
– Postulate 18.10.

Through telepathic radio intelligence of awakened mind, mahabodhisattvic angelic projections subliminally guide lesser evolving worlds toward conscious parallel universe realization of the self-reflective discovery of the Law of Time.
– Postulate 18.11.

In the early drafts of The Notion Club Papers no specific dates are given, but they are dated loosely to some time “after 1989”, which suggests that Tolkien was somehow tuning into a preconscious awareness of the 13:20 frequency. The final version, however, takes it back to 1987, and in this case we are given the exact dates. These dates are the nights on which meetings of the Notion Club literary circle — largely based on the real life literary circle known as the Inklings, of which Tolkien was a part — took place. Part One is primarily focused on the events of two nights of the Notion Club meetings, with one other night added as a “sample” of the type of documents that make up the Papers.

We’ll come back to consider the case of the early versions, but in the case of the final version, Part One is primarily focused on Nights 60 and 61, which are dated to February 20, 1987, and February 27, 1987. These two nights make up the main body of the text, with a few lines from Night 54 on November 16, 1986 included as a sample.

The sample night of November 16 is noteworthy for falling right within the interval that concerns this series of posts, being just before the New Fire Pleiadian opposition of November 18, and the exact solar return of the Temple XIV Blood Moon ceremony enacted by Kan Bahlam and Ix Tzak’bu. The nights that make up the essential portion of Part One, February 20 and 27 of 1987, are, even more noteworthy: It was during this exact interval, in “real life”, around 42 years after Tolkien wrote this story, that radiation from Supernova 1987A first reached planet Earth. In fact, the detection and discovery of SN1987A took place exactly mid-way between the two nights on which Ramer would have been expounding his methods of time travel:

Feb 20, 1987 – Ramer’s first night explaining time travel methods

+ 3 days =

Feb 23, 1987 – Neutrinos from SN1987A first detected by instruments on Earth


Feb 24, 1987 – Humans realize SN1987A discovery

+ 3 days =

Feb 27, 1987 – Ramer concludes his exposition of time travel methods

To review, around 1945 J.R.R. Tolkien wrote a story about methods of time-space travel chiefly focused on the dates February 20 and 27, 1987. Then, at the exact midpoint of this interval SN1987A was actually discovered on February 23-24, 1987. And then, after having organized the Harmonic Convergence of 1987, Valum Votan identified this Supernova event as having planted the consious seeds of the Dreamspell, a set of tools meant to harness “stellar exitation” for purposes of time-space travel.


SN1987A and the Sacred Mayan Moon Cycles

Another important connection has to do with the sample night of November 16 and its synchronic connection to the main events in February. This also involves the analagous connection between the sacred Mayan Moon cycles and the appearance of SN1987A. The key here is that SN1987A appeared exactly 260 days, one galactic spin, before the solar return of the codical Moon cycle base:

February 23 (Moon 8 day 17) = SN1987A appearance (1987 AD)

+ 260 days =

November 10 (Moon 4 day 24) = codical Moon cycle base 12 Lamat (755 AD)

Further demonstrating the connection between The 260 Postulates and The Notion Club Papers (and the overall focus of this series of posts), Valum sealed The 260 Postulates with the dates Moon 4 day 22 and Moon 4 day 23, right within the “warning station” window of the codical Moon base.


Tolkien and the Galactic Maya

Part Two of The Notion Club Papers makes the Galactic Mayan connection even more direct, and ties it in with the wider legendarium of Middle-earth for which Tolkien is so famous. We should note that, while the Papers are obviously fictionalized, the ideas that Tolkien puts forth here are not idle ruminations, they arise largely from his own personal experiences within the imaginal realm, or what he referred to as Faerie. If you want to know how Tolkien came up with the tales of Middle-earth, a great deal of insight can be found in the Papers, and Part Two in particular.

In this second part Tolkien’s alter-ego is one Alwin Arundel Lowdham. The story concerns Lowdham’s mystical experiences with ancient languages, including Old English (Anglo-Saxon), but especially the antediluvian language of Atlantis (Numenorean) and the angelic language of the Elves (Quenya). These mystical communications give insight not only into how Tolkien created, or discovered, the legends of Middle-earth, but also into how the legends relate to mundane human history, and how they continue to impinge upon present times.

Although Tolkien was a highly respected academic philologist, and remains a powerful influence on Old English scholarship (perhaps most notably through his critical reevaluation of Beowulf), he was by no means limited by academic discipline; his mythopoetic vision went far beyond any purely rational perspective. He was a true poet, sensitive to more than semantic definitions and etymologies, but to the qualitative, resonant, and evocative aspects of language. And like his predecessors in the epic tradition such as Homer and the anonymous authors of the Kalevala, his work did not arise from a purely conscious deliberate effort, but through a receptivity to voices of the muses that came from beyond anything his conscious mind could have created in itself.

Tolkien felt, indeed he knew, that this type of mythopoetic experience, while uncommon on the individual level, was a part of the universal human experience, arising within all cultures throughout the world. He also sensed that it gave rise to certain meaningful “coincidences” or congruent poetic resonances that indicate an underlying connection of the various traditions through a “hidden symbol making process”.

From an earlier version of Part Two (emphais added):

‘In any case,’ said Lowdham, ‘Earendel is not Anglo-Saxon. Or rather, it is and it isn’t. I think it is one of those curious cases of “linguistic coincidence” that have long puzzled me. I sometimes think that they are too easily dismissed as “mere accident”. You know the sort of thing that you can find in any dictionary of a strange language, and which so excites the amateur philologists, itching to derive one tongue from another that they know better: a word that is nearly the same in form and meaning as the corresponding word in English, or Latin, or Hebrew, or what not. Like mare ‘male’ in the New Hebrides and Latin maris, marem. Or the example that used to be given as a frightful warning in the old text-books: that popol means ‘people’ or ‘popular assembly’ in Tamil, but has no connexion whatever with populus and its derivatives, and is really derived, they say, from a Tamil word for a mat for the councillors to squat on.

‘I dare say some of these things are mere chance, or at least not very significant. Yet I think it also happens that a word-form may be arrived at by different routes, in far separated times and places, and yet the result may be the product of a hidden symbol-making process working out to a similar end. Or in any case the “accident” may touch off, as it were, deeper or sleeping mind-echoes, so that the similar form thus acqires similar significance or emotional content. Every language has words in which its genius seems to come to flash-point, words whose form, though it remains within the general style, achieves a brilliance or a beauty of universal virtue.’

This is clearly one of those passages that not-so-subtly touches upon Tolkien’s own experience with Faerie. And, amazingly, the example word popol not only has a similar meaning between Tamil and Latin, but it also has the same meaning in the Kiche Mayan language. I don’t mean similar; I mean the Tamil definition of popol and the Kiche definition of popol are exactly the same. Not only that, but the Kiche word popol is one of the language’s most easily recognizable words, being the first word in the title of the Popol Vuh, which means “Council Book”. More specifically, popol means “council” or “community”, but also “woven mat”. Like I said, the meanings between Kiche and Tamil are virtually identical.

The root of the word popol is also familiar from the name of the first 20-day month of the 365-day Mayan haab calendar, which is Pop, meaning “woven mat”. Note the woven design of the Pop glyph:


Pop glyph – “woven mat”

(Some will claim this is pure coincidence, others that Tamil must have influenced Mayan through inter-continental travellers from India. Whether it was one of these two scenarios or the type of psychic resonance suggested by Tolkien is beyond the scope of this post to explore.)

The connection to the Maya is more deeply reinforced through the basic outline of Tolkien’s mythology itself. Lowdham — a lightly veiled stand-in for Tolkien himself — is heir to a visionary tradition that goes back to one Aelfwine of England, who lived during the 10th century AD, and who journeyed across the western sea — that is, towards was would have been the Americas — where he was initiated into the literary and legendary traditions of an exotic, highly cultured civilization — that of the Elves.

Aelfwine (Elf-friend) was a seaman of England of old who, being driven out to sea from the coast of Erin, passed into the deep waters of the West, and according to legend by some strange chance or grace found the ‘straight road’ of the Elvenfolk and came at last to the Isle of Eressea in Elvenhome. Or maybe, as some say, alone in the waters, hungry and athirst, he fell into a trance and was granted a vision of that isle as it once had been, ere a West-wind arose and drove him back to Middle-earth.
– note to “The Song of Aelfwine”, (Sauron Defeated p. 280)

Of course, if any Englishman of the 10th century had actually made it across the Atlantic Ocean and encountered a highly literate civilization, that civilization would have been the Maya. In particular, it would have been the Maya of what is known as the “terminal classic” period, or the “early preclassic”, c.800 AD – 1000 AD.

This was the time of the great transition, when the great southern cities were abandoned, and new syncretic cultural forms uniting Mayan and “Toltec” traditions were flowering in cities to the north, such as Xochicalco and, most notably, Chichen Itza. This was the great age of the Itza Maya. If we want to explain Aelfwine’s journey in terms of the mundane facts of world history, he most likely arrived in the Yucatan, perhaps at the island of Cozumel (Tol Eressea), where he was shown certain screenfold glyph-books (codices) of the Itza Maya. He then would have returned to England where this experience and the Mayan legends continued to haunt him, and his descendants, all the way down the line and into the modern age, erupting most forcefully in visions of a Red Book received by one J.R.R Tolkien.

‘And some there were who said that there had been a land of Men away west in long days of yore, but that it had been cast down and those that escaped had come to Eriu (so they called Iraland) in their ships, and their descendants lived on there, and in other lands about the shores of Garsecg. But they dwindled and forgort, and nought now was left of them but a wild strain in the blood of men of the West. “And you will know those that have it by the sea-longing that is on them,” they said; “and it is many that it draws out west to their death or to come never back among living men”.

‘And I thought that maybe the blood of such men ran in my father’s veins and my own, for our kin had long been settled at Glastonbury, where there was rumor of strange comers out of the sea in days of old.”

-Lowdham (p. 271)

In this light, a few aspects of Tolkien’s mythological languages are most remarkable. Of all the memorable characters in Tolkien’s legendarium (I don’t need to go down the list, you know them), many, if not most, readers are likely to name the wizard Gandalf as the most outstanding of all. Simultaneously mysterious and familiar, there is a vitality and immediacy to the personality of Gandalf that jumps off the page, as though something about him were really real. Certainly this familiarity is due in part to his similarity to his lengendary predecessors Odin and Merlin, who clearly influenced Tolkien’s creation of the wizard; but neither Odin nor Merlin seem to speak so directly to the collective consciousness of the present age as Gandalf.

The resonant linguistic connections of Gandalf to the Itza Maya are amazingly clear and direct. According to the mythology, Gandalf is a kind of angel or divine power known as the Maiar; and, as a wizard, he is a particular type of the Maiar known as the Istari. That is, Gandalf is one of the Istari Maiar, or, in the singular, an Istar Maia. Istar Maia essentially means “Wizard Angel”. The connection of Istar and Itza goes even beyond the sound resonance, as both words can be interpreted to mean “wizard”.

Quenya: Istar = Wizard
Mayan: Itza = Wizard (“Water Wizard”, as it is sometimes glossed)

As for his own particular identity as an Istar Maia, Gandalf’s name in Quenya Elvish is Olorin, from the root olor, which means “dream”, “vision”, or “mind”. Interestingly, the full, nuanced interpretation of olor is very similar to the Sanskrit maya — “magic”, or “creative illusion”. This means that he is a Maia wizard associated especially with the visionary mental powers of creative dreaming — a wizard of the dreamtime. This would seem to indicate that Gandalf is a “dream-spell” master.

The Mayan resonance is also apparent through Gandalf’s Odinic influence, as Odin is also known as Votan, a name shared by the legendary founder of the Mayan kingdom Na Chan, and namesake of Valum Votan.

Interestingly, Gandalf is also known for his strong affinity to “pipe weed” — a type of tobbacco, which is native to the Americas and sacred to the Maya. Indeed, one of the Mayan names for tobbacco is may, from the same root as Maya itself.

As for Tolkien himself, one linguistic connection I have yet to mention is coded right into his name, which, as many of you have undoubtedly already noticed, is resonant with tzolkin — the name of the sacred Mayan day count. This is exactly the type of cross-cultural, meaningful linguistic connection that Tolkien found so fascinating, and which he employed in the creation of the names of his own characters. Stranger than fiction, as the saying goes.


Kin 251 and the Two Towers

Now lets delve a little more deeply into synchromystic connections of the Papers as they relate to Galactic Synchronization. To begin with, let us consider the full title of an early draft of Part One:

Beyond Probability
Out of the Talkative Planet
The Ramblings of Ramer
being Nights 251 and 252 of The Notion Club Papers

These two numbers 251 and 252 are key. Although they were changed to Nights 60 and 61 in the final draft (Feb 20 and 27, 1987), the numbers 251 and 252 continue to manifest conspicuously in various mystic layers of the story. (It might also be noted that Night 60 corresponds as a kin number to Pakal’s 8 Ajaw birth sign.)

As mentioned in a previous post, the key event of Part Two is a Great Storm that takes place on the night of June 12, 1987. Keep in mind that the meetings of the Notion Club took place at night, and The Great Storm, while beginning “the night of” June 12, continued through until just before dawn the next morning, June 13. The Dreamspell galactic signature for June 12 and June 13, 1987 was kin 250-251. Furthermore, in the published version of the story (in Sauron Defeated), The Storm happens to take place on pages 250-252.

Great wings of shadow stretched out ominously over the town. The curtains stirred as with a presage of wind, and then hung still. There was a long mutter of thunder ending in a crack.
[end of page 250]

Lowdham was standing erect in the middle of the floor, looking out of the window with staring eyes. Suddenly:

‘Narika ‘nBari ‘nAdun yanakhim,’ he shouted, lifting up both his arms. ‘The Eagles of the Lords of the West are at hand!’


There was a dazzle of lightning and a deafening crash.

‘Behold! Now the black wrath is come upon us out of the West. The Eagles of the Powers of the World have arisen in anger. The Lords have spoken to Eru, and the fate of the World is changed!’

‘Do you not hear the wind coming and the roaring of the sea?’ said Lowdham.

‘Do you not see the wings of the Eagles, and their eyes like thunderbolts and their claws like forks of fire?’ said Jeremy. ‘See! The abyss openeth. The sea falls. The mountains lean over. Urid yakalubim!’ He got up unsteadily, and Lowdham took his hand, and drew him towards him, as if to protect him. Together they went to the window and stood there peering out, talking to on another in a strange tongue. Irresistably I was reminded of two people hanging over the side of a ship. But suddenly with a cry they turned away, and knelt down covering their eyes.

‘The glory hath fallen into the deep waters,’ said Jeremy weeping.

‘Still the eagles pursue us,’ said Lowdham. ‘The wind is like the end of the world, and the waves are like mountains moving. We go into darkness.’

There was a roar of thunder and a blaze of lightning: flashes north, south, and west. Ramer’s room flared into a blistering light and rocked back into darkness. The electric light had
[end of page 251]
failed. At a distance there was a murmur as of a great wind coming.

‘All hath passed away. The light hath gone out!’ said Jeremy.

With a vast rush and slash rain came down suddenly like waterfalls out of the sky, and a wind swept the city with wild wings of fury; its shriek rose to a deafening tumult. Near at hand I heard, or thought I heard, a great weight like a stone tower falling heavily, clattering to ruin. Before we could close the shutters after them, the curtains were blown across the room and the floor was flooded.


And there this meeting would have ended, but for the fact that the rest of us could not face the night and dared not go.

For three hours we sat huddled up in dim candle-light, while the greatest storm in the memory of any living man roared over us: the terrible storm of June 12th 1987, that slew more men, felled more trees, and cast down more towers, bridges and other works of Man than a hundred years of wild weather.
[end of page 252]

When at last it had abated in the small hours, and through the rags of its wild retreat the sky was already growing pale again in the East, the company parted and crept away, tired and shaken, to wade the flooded streets and discover if their homes and colleges were still standing.
[-page 253]

As you can see, the height of the drama is focused on page 251, and a strict calculation of the hours indicates that The Storm took place in the early hours of kin 251. The repeated references to falling towers is quite interesting, being that if I ask you to think of an event involving falling towers, you are very likely to think of an event that also took place on kin 251.


The event of towers falling on kin 251 finds further resonance in the work of Tolkien, being that the title he gave to the second volume of The Lord of the Rings is The Two Towers. This is all the more interesting being that Tolkien didn’t have any particularly good reason for naming this volume The Two Towers, other than, I suppose, it just sounded right. Tolkien himself wasn’t even quite sure which of the many towers in the story were the nominal two; although he eventually settled on Orthanc and Minas Morgul, this was only a matter of retrospective explanation. As he wrote in a letter to Rayner Unwin:

“The Two Towers” gets as near as possible to finding a title to cover the widely divergent Books 3 and 4; and can be left ambiguous – it might refer to Isengard and Barad-dur, or to Minas Tirith and B; or Isengard and Cirith Ungol.


Art by J.R.R. Tolkien

Clearly this was a case of an archetype impressing itself upon Tolkien without his full conscious awareness. Interestingly, not only does the motif of falling towers feature prominently in the telling of the events of The Great Storm, but “two towers” are specifically referred to in the text of the Papers as well (emphasis added):

The large window looked west, and the two towers of All Souls’ stuck up like dim horns against the stars.

Suddenly Lowdham spoke in a changed voice, clear and ominous, words in an unknown tongue; and then turning fiercely upon us he cried aloud:

Behold the Eagles of the Lords of the West! They are coming over Numenor!

(page 231)

Note that this is not just any other passage, it directly foreshadows the storm to come on kin 251. It might also be noted that the name All Souls’ suggests this same time of year with which this series of posts is chiefly concerned.


The Wavespell of the Star and Karmic Redemption

Kin 251 is also particularly relevant to the present events that this series of posts has been tracking. For one, the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter that took place earlier this year on Day 33, also the same day that spacecraft Juno made a record-breaking close approach to Jupiter’s surface, was kin 251. As discussed in the previous post “Day 93 and the Wanderers’ Dance“, this was also the same day the sizeable Asteroid 2016 QA2 was discovered, just before it’s close approach to Earth, at one fifth the distance to the Moon, on the next day, kin 252. (Also related to the ascensions of Pakal and Hunbatz Men.)

These synchronizations are further enhanced by the Moon kin code, in which the thirteen moons of the current 11 Storm year are coded by the Star Wavespell, kin 248-260. This codes the current moon — Moon 4 — as 4 Monkey, kin 251.

This indicates that we have the opportunity to participate in the conscious redemption of these karmic patterns through the harmonies of the Lovers’ Galactic Reunion.

As noted in the previous post, “Radiant Spica, The Red Books, and Visions of The Flood“, there is a special resonance of Tolkien’s kin 255 with the alignment of Jupiter and Spica that will take place during this year’s 8th moon, coded by Moon kin 255. As also noted, it is significant that kin 255, as the Blue Galactic Eagle, corresponds to the integration of Jupiter, coded by the tribe of the Eagle, into the galactic harmonies of the Telektonon.

Another key circumstance has to do with the importance of the Eagles in Tolkien’s work. As the above quotations from The Notion Club Papers makes clear in itself, the appearance of the Eagles is a sign of divine reckoning. If you are at all familiar with The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings, you well know that the appearance of the Eagles consistently occurs at the climactic turning point of his narratives. Tolkien has actually been criticized for using the Eagles as a sort of deus ex machina, but this motif was never the result of haphazard plot structure or lack of creativity on his part; it was always done with a very intentional purpose; he even coined a new word to explain this purpose: eucatastrophe:

I coined the word ‘eucatastrophe’: the sudden happy turn in a story which pierces you with a joy that brings tears (which I argued it is the highest function of fairy-stories to produce).

– J.R.R. Tolkien, Blue Galactic Eagle

Coming to Terms With the Ancient Ones 3 Kib 19 Sak  : kin 62


This post is of a somewhat different nature than my usual offerings. Due to the course I plan to take in the next post I feel it necessary to comment on some cultural issues to avoid misinterpretation of my intentions. So, to begin with, I’ll just come right out and say it: I do not envision the civilization of the ancient Maya as having been some sort of perfected utopia, and I do not envision the ancient sages as having been anything other than mortal, flawed human beings.

For those willing to take off the blinders of modern presuppositions of superiority, it is, of course, impossible to deny that Mayan culture has generated works of surpassing magnificence, worthy of our most humble admiration and respect. Although the debased condition of industrial civilization might cause one to deny this, humans actually possess amazing potential, and various cultures have advanced certain of these potentials to varying degrees. The dreaming arts of the aboriginal Australians, the meditational techniques of the Vedic traditions, the monumental arts of the ancient Egyptians, and the philosophical disciplines of ancient Greece are some of the examples that come readily to mind. Our respect for these achievements, and their continued influence in present times, is no reason for us to believe that those responsible for cultivating such things should be uncritically romanticized and emulated; nor, by the same token, does the fact that they were human creations justify an ignorance of their value.

Dualistic thinking on such issues is incredibly pervasive, but there does exist a point of balance between uncritical romanticization on one hand and self-inflicted cultural amnesia on the other. Nor is it correct to assume that any one cultural achievement defines any of these cultures in itself; all naturally arising human cultures are integrated whole systems unto themselves. You’re not going to truly understand Egyptian monuments from a purely architectural perspective, nor will you understand Greek philosophy from a purely logical perpective; and you certainly won’t understand either if you substitute an appreciation for the wider cultural context of the traditions with a projection of the inherited preconceptions of your own foreign culture.

With such in mind, we turn to our consideration of Mayan culture — certainly the target of the complete range of intercultural projections, distortions, and misperceptions. I don’t have to tell you: The ancient Maya were an enlightened, almost fairy-like people, masters of every science, artform, and divine aspiration; unless, that is, they were superstitious savages, obsessed with war, human sacrifice, and every imaginable form of depravity. It sounds silly, but these stereotypes are quite rigidly imprinted upon the collective consciousness; and some overachieving schizophrenics are even capable of believing them both at the same time.

My approach is, I hope, a bit more nuanced. Was there violence among the precolumbian Maya? You would have to ignore some pretty clear evidence to think otherwise. And, of course, you would have to be equally ignorant to deny that their cultural achivements in certain areas, notably ceremonial magic, mathematics, and astronomy, rival or surpass those of any other cultural tradition.

Another level of nuance recognizes that cultures change throughout time and space. There’s no uniformity to Mayan culture. Assuming that preclassic El Mirador, classic Tikal, and postclassic Noh Peten were culturally identical is like assuming the same about ancient Rome, renniasance Venice, and the modern Vatican. But because so much of what draws attention to the ancient Maya has to do with the classic civilization, let’s focus on that, taking Palenque, widely recognized as exceptional even in this context, as an obvious example.

Were the Maya of ancient Palenque exceptionally bloodthirsty, or was their society more peaceful? These are of course relative concepts, but worthy of consideration nonetheless. This may come as a surprise to some, but yes, the Maya of classic Palenque did practice human sacrifice; name one human culture that didn’t, or doesn’t. Perhaps some are thinking, well, we don’t practice human sacrifice, to which I would respond, oh you naive fools. The reason the type of human sacrifice practiced by the ancient Maya is so sensationalized is that it was done with a conscious attitude of reverence, as a divine offering. We have human sacrifice in the modern world, of course, but it’s nature is obscured by terms such as “capital punishment”, “casualties of war”, and “automobile fatalities”. These kinds of death are all avoidable, but they are accepted because it is believed that they are necessary to the functioning of society. The same principal holds for human sacrifice in the ancient Mayan world. It is not unlikely that many cases of human sacrifice were indeed forms of “capital punishment”, and it is absolutely certain that many victims of sacrifice were war captives. The most spiritually elevated form, however, was likely that of the innocent victim offered as a gift to the divine powers. That might sound horrible to modern sensibilities, but the modern world sacrifices a staggering number of innocents to the powers that it worships; I’m thinking of automobiles and alcohol in particular.

I don’t have statistics to back this up, and I’m not sure any reliable statistics on the matter could be found, but I would guess that your chances of being killed in battle, as a war captive, or innocent sacrificial victim were far less as a Maya person of the classic era than are your chances of death as an offering to the gods of war or the automobile in the modern age. Furthermore, the existential despair that manifests itself today in ever increasing rates of death by overdose or suicide would have been, in my opinion, almost completely absent among the classic Maya. No, they actually had something worth living for — a vibrant sense of community and divinity, a strong connection to the spirit of the ancestors, and value for the lives of the future generations. To find such things in the modern age, you must be looking very very hard; even then it’s no sure thing.

The simple fact is, and I don’t see any way this can be denied, Mayan culture is far and away more aware and accepting of death as a natural part of life than the schizophrenic industrial civilization of modern times. The leaders of industrial civilization — we can use the POTUS as a prime example — are perfectly willing to bomb other countries, attack wedding ceremonies with drone strikes, impose punitive trade embargoes on impoverished communities, incarcerate huge portions of the domestic population, build up massive stockpiles of nuclear weapons, promote regime change abroad, and engage in numerous wars without end, just so long as they, and no one in their family, has to sacrifice even a moment of their comfortably affluent lifestyle. Compare this to the military campaigns of the classic Maya, which would very commonly be lead by the king himself. In other words, the declaration of war for classic Maya kings was no passive, casual act, it was genuine self-sacrifice, done with full knowledge that they were putting their own lives on the line. Furthermore, even in times of peace, the royal figures of a Mayan city were expected to demonstrate their commitment and dedication to the common good through auto-sacrifical bloodletting ceremonies. It would be interesting to see how the United States’ foreign policy would change if Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were required to cut open their own penis and tounge, respectively, for every willy-nilly act of foreign aggression authorized by the executive branch. But no, there is a stark compartmentalization, reenforced by the complicit media, that these officials are above the fray of the violence they foment. This is completely contrary to traditional Mayan ideology; I’ll leave it to you to guess which approach I think is more healthy.

And yes, times of peace did exist in classic Mayan times. According to the history recorded at Palenque, even though Pakal was born at a time when the city was experiencing continual attacks from the Calakmul faction, there were no immediate acts of retribution. Once his mother and he had restored stability, their focus went towards bringing the community back together, making it a desireable vibrant cultural epicenter, with values placed on sacred ritual and intellectual development. It wasn’t until around the age of 60 years old, after half a century of peace, that Pakal finally, and very deliberately, exacted his revenge. Even then, it would be hard to argue that this revenge constituted any kind of indiscriminate massacre. No, it was a surgical strike that targeted those few belligerents that had the intention and power to threaten Palenque’s autonomy. These individuals were captured, brought to Palenque, and sacrificed.

Here’s where we get to another sensationalistic subject: cannibalism. According to the texts, the war captives were sacrificed at a banquet, and were then eaten by the gods, and Pakal himself. So was Pakal a cannibal? No one really knows, but it is possible. However, we should be careful reading this too literally, since, according to the colonial era Books of Chilam Balam, in the section known as “the interrogation of the chiefs”, cannibalism is not meant to be taken literally; it is part of the metaphorical Zuyua language. In fact, the ability for the king to interpret the act of cannibalism in metaphorical terms is prerequisite to access to the throne; if you think that you will be literally entitled to kill and eat people, you will never even come close to passing the examination.

“Then, son, go bring me the green blood of my daughter, also her head, her entrails, her thigh, and her arm; also that which I told you to enclose in an unused jar, as well as the green stool of my daughter. Show them to me. It is my desire to see them. I have commissioned you to set them before me, that I may burst into weeping.” “So be it, father.” He come with the left ear of a wild bee. Then let him go.

This is the green blood of his daughter for which he asks: it is Maya wine. These are the entrails of his daughter: it is an empty bee-hive. This is his daughter’s head: it is an unused jar for steeping wine. This is what his daughter’s green stool is: it is the stone pestle for honey. This is what the left ear of the wild bee is:  it is the moisture of the wine. This is what the bone of his daughter is: it is jthe flexible bark of the balché. This is the thigh of which he speaks: it is the trunk of the balché tree. This is what the arm of his daughter is: it is the branch of the balché. This is what he calls weeping: it is a drunken speech. Then let him go and give these to him. Let him seat himself tranquilly; let him wait for him to speak; let him salute him as his lord when he arrives.

This is of course a colonial document, and may be a later interpretation of events in which the king did literally engage in cannibalism; but even then this shows us that Mayan culture was self-evolutive. They had ways of gleaning the symbolic value of their ancient history and heritage without necessarily engaging in its darkest aspects. This is something with which every human generation must come to terms.

Think about it — do you agree with your parents, grandparents, and ancestors further down the family tree on matters of politics and social justice? Does this disagreement keep you from loving and honoring them for the gifts they have given you? This is a univeral timeless dynamic of the human species; each generation has the task of evaluating it’s cultural heritage and adapting it to suit its own time. Indeed, the Mayan understanding of cyclical change encouraged just this type of generational development. At the same time, regardless of how depraved some actions of past generations may seem, they were never so disrespected as to have been forgotten or completely demonized. For instruction in these dynamics we need only look to the Popol Vuh.

One of the principal divine powers of the Popol Vuh is the creator couple Xpiyacoc and Xmucane, Grandfather and Grandmother, who, at least in some respects, can be equated with the binary unity of Hunab Ku. Xpiyacoc and Xmucane are without doubt worthy of great respect and veneration, but they are not completely above reproach, and their values are not to be taken as the final say on human behavior. The following quotes from an episode of the Popol Vuh illustrates this point most clearly:

THIS, therefore, is the account of their birth that we shall tell. When the day arrived, the maiden Lady Blood gave birth. The Grandmother did not see it when they were born, for these two arose suddenly. Hunahpu and Xbalanque were their names. They arose in the mountains, but when they were taken into the house they did not sleep: “Take them away and abandon them, for truly shrill are their mouths,” said the Grandmother.

Thus they were placed on an anthill, and there they slept blissfully. Then they were taken out again and placed on a thornbush.

They were not loved by their grandmother, nor by One Batz and One Chouen. Nor were they given any food. When meals were prepared for them, One Batz and One Chouen would eat it all before they returned.

With treatment like that, one might expect the twins to have planned a brutal retaliation against their elders, but such is not the case; they make an appeal for love instead:

“We tried, our grandmother, and at first they came back. We have tried to call them back again. But do not grieve. We are your grandsons, and we are here. Just love our mother, O grandmother.

“Our older brothers will be remembered. Thus be it so. They were given names and also given titles. One Batz and One Chouen shall be called upon,” said Hunahpu and Xbalanque.

And since that time they have been called upon by the flautists and the singers. The ancient ones also called upon them, they who were the writers and the carvers. A long time ago, they became animals. They became spider monkeys because of their pride, for they had abused their younger brothers according to the dictates of their hearts. Thus they were ruined. One Batz and One Chouen were lost, becoming animals. Thus their community and their home is now among the flautists and the singers. For great were their accomplishments when they dwelt with their grandmother and their mother.

In his notes to this translation, Allen Christenson writes the following (emphasis added):

Loq’oj is to “love, esteem, appreciate, value, honor, or regard.” Thus the twins seek to replace the treachery and jealousy of the household with love and respect. In Quiché view, this is not merely the establishment of a more comfortable home environment, but an essential prerequisite for the proper expression of divine will. In contemporary Quiché thought, ancestors and deity do not tolerate open anger, jealousy, or pride and punish such severely. Until these characteristics are eliminated from the house of their mother and grandmother, the twins would not be able to act in concert with Heart of Sky, identified in the text as the inspiration for the twins subsequent actions in defeating death and restoring their father/ancestor to power. Note that even in victory, Hunahpu and Xbalanque show a degree of honor and respect for the legitimate accomplishments and titles of their older siblings, acknowledging that they will be remembered.

Hun Batz and Hun Chouen offer us a direct parallel to the ancient sages (emphasis added):

Las Casas wrote that in the early Colonial period, these two brothers were the patrons of all the arts: “All the skilled artisans, such as painters, featherworkers, carvers, silversmiths, and others like them, worshiped and made sacrifices to those younger sons called Huncheven and Hunahan, so that they would grant them the skill and mastery to carry out their work in an accomplished and perfect way; but although they worshiped them as divine men, they were not held as gods in general, nor superior to all others” (Las Casas 1967, III.ccxxxv, 506. Translation by author).

I hope this goes some way to illustrate a proper respect for and understanding of the continued presence of the spirit of the ancestors among their living descendants. Furthermore, we can put aside the racist notion that indigenous people somehow needed Europeans to come and rescue them from a violent, inhumane way of life. We might do well to also keep in mind, that for the past 500 years the Maya have not been the perpetrators of any kind of policy of violence, but rather the targets of such. And those of us living within the stifling confines of modern industrial civilization might do well to turn a critical eye towards our own inherited savagery, rather than projecting it upon the guardians of the living Earth.

Sacred Moon Cycles and the Queens of Palenque


For those few of you that have been paying close attention this post will be mostly review, but I feel it’s worthwhile to collect the following information into a single concise document. I’m planning to follow it up in the next few days with one more prefatory post, and at that point we should be ready to get back to building upon and integrating ideas set forth in previous installments. This is all going somewhere; at least I hope so.

We are now more than half-way through the current 33-day sidereal window that began with the Spica/Arcturus conjunction and is set to conclude with the New Fire Pleiadian opposition.  The first part of this sidereal window corresponds to the prophetic nexus of the piktun prophecy (already covered in detail here and here), while the second part corresponds to the sacred Moon cycles of the Mayan codices. I am, of course, referring to the 13 Moon almanac of the Paris Codex and the eclipse table of the Dresden Codex, which both share the same base date of 12 Lamat. This base date is equivalent to Moon 4 day 24, kin 001, during the 11 Wizard year -24.16, the first day of 24 solar-galactic cycles that concluded with the “Harmonic Concordance”, discussed in the previous post.

Mayan Codex principal lunar base = 12 Lamat = Moon 4 day 24, kin 001
(Paris 13 Moon almanac & Dresden eclipse table)

The fact that this same base date is common to two almanacs of paramount importance in two different codices indicates that it was widely observed by Mayan astronomers and daykeepers. Indeed, as my previous work has shown, the fundamental aspects of the synchronization go well beyond even the codices, being coded directly into the long count itself, and most elegantly emphasized by the Temple XIV tablet at Palenque. (The pieces I currently have up online that address this include “The Full Lunar Eclipse of the Southern Solstice 2010“, “Ancient Visions of a 2012 Eclipse“, and “Beyond the Threshold: Galactic Synchronization, Blood Moons, and the Creation of a Meaningful Future“.) As important as the codical 12 Lamat base is, and it is very important, it is also important to realize that the energetic window of the synchronization extends for a number of days before and after the base — a leeway alluded to by the codices themselves.

In the case of the Paris Codex, the 12 Lamat base anchors a count of five years of thirteen 28-day months, a total of 1820 days (1820 = 5 x 13 x 28) that reaches its cyclical conclusion 6 or 7 days (depending on intercalary semantics) before the solar anniversary of its base, on Moon 4 day 17-18, at which point an adjustment is made back to the 24th. A single 13 Moon run of 364 days might therefore begin anywhere within this 7-day window from the 17th to the 24th days of Moon 4.

In the case of the Dresden Codex, the eclipse table suggests a similar window through its unusual 3-day “warning stations” and the associated lunar astronomy. At the time of the base date the new moon actually took place around two days later, on Moon 12 day 26, while the final warning station, which, given the table’s cyclical structure, immediately precedes the base date, includes the two days prior. This gives us a window from Moon 4 day 22 (10 Kimi) to Moon 4 day 26 (1 Ok new moon).

Given the overriding relationship to the long count cycles, and to the Temple XIV tablet, the full energetic nexus actually extends from Moon 4 day 17 to Moon 5 day 2. Even this is a bit of an over simplification being that we are dealing with considerations of both the tropical year and the sidereal year, extending over spans of time in which such a distinction is significant, but rest assured that the sages had this all worked out in a very deliberate manner.

In this context, our attention is drawn to the following events:

Moon 4 day 18: This is the solar return of the requiem for Kan Bahlam that took place on 9 Ajaw 3 K’ank’in (Temple XIV tablet).

Moon 4 day 19: This is the solar return of the death of Ix Yohl Ik’nal, the first ruling queen of Palenque’s historical dynasty. Note that this Clear Sign date of her death, 2 Eb, was Dreamspell kin 001, same as the codical Moon base.

Moon 4 day 19-20: This corresponds to solar nadir at the important latitude 14.8 degrees north (Copan/Izapa), where such events, like the solar zenith passages, are separated by 260 days.

Moon 4 day 20: This is the solar return of the emanation of Unen K’awiil, the third born of Palenque’s Ux Lut K’uh holy trinity. It also currently corresponds to the sidereal return of the accession of the divine progenitor Muwaan Mat, who gave birth to Unen K’awiil.

Moon 4 day 22: This is currently the sidereal return of the accession of the avatar of Muwaan Mat, Pakal’s mother Sak K’uk’, the second ruling queen of Palenque’s historical dynasty. It can hardly be a coincidence that Muwaan Mat the progenitor and Muwaan Mat the avatar both acceded to the throne at the same time of the sidereal year, within one day of what currently corresponds to Moon 4 day 21.

Moon 4 day 28: This is the solar return of the death of Ix Tzak’bu, wife of Pakal and mother of his successors Kan Bahlam and K’an Joy Chitam.

Moon 4 day 28 – Moon 5 day 1: This corresponds to solar nadir at the lattitude of Palenque.

Moon 5 day 2: This is the solar return of the Blood Moon ritual performed by Ix Tzak’bu and Kan Bahlam on 9 Ajaw 3 K’ank’in (Temple XIV tablet).

Note that nearly all of these events directly involve the sacred feminine powers. We observe the death of both Ix Yohl Ik’nal (4.19) and Ix Tzak’bu (4.28), the accession of both Muwaan Mat the progenitor (4.20) and Muwaan Mat the avatar (4.22), the transfer of the sacred bloodline from Ix Tzak’bu to her son (5.2), and the birth of Unen K’awiil to Muwaan Mat (4.20). The one apparent exception, the requiem for Kan Bahlam, is actually no exception at all, as this took place exactly one calendar round following the Blood Moon ritual with his mother.

We must therefore conclude that the feminine powers of the Galactic Maya, particularly those of birth, guardianship, and death, are in full effect at this time of year. Given the concurrent connection to the codical Moon cycles, and the clear message of the Temple XIV tablet, we also conclude that the source of this power is the spirit of the Moon herself.

I am writing this just as we enter into this energy today on Moon 4 day 17, kin 59, for posting on kin 60, Dreamspell equivalent of Pakal’s 8 Ajaw birth sign, or, as we might think of it, the sign of Sak K’uk’s power of birth. This leads into an interval of 9 days that will culminate with kin 69 on Moon 4 day 27, exactly 4 years following the final full solar eclipse of the 13-baktun cycle of history. This 9-day interval from kin 60 to 69 corresponds to the final 9 steps of Pakal’s Pyramid of Ascension, bringing us into the temple sanctuary at its apex. This passage through the energy of kin 69, the daysign 4 Moon, will mark the final transition out of the initial Blood Moon phase of Galactic Synchronization, defined by the first 4 total lunar eclipses of the new baktun, and into the energy of the oncoming Love Moon phase, which will begin to manifest in full next year when the long awaited fifth total lunar eclipse of the baktun arrives on kin 253. In the meantime there are preparations to be made…

Solar Cycles and the Samhain Season


Today is Day 94 of the Dreamspell solar year. As covered  previously, this is the same day of the year on which, two years ago, the largest sunspot of the current Solar Cycle 24, AR2192, took the form of a “Giant Skull” and released an X2-class flare, marking the culmination of its activity before disappearing onto the far side of the Sun. It was also the same day that the large and potentially hazardous Asteroid UR116 was discovered (Don’t Panic!— we should have at least a few more decades before impact becomes likely). As covered in the 10 Wizard PAN report, this was linked synchronically to the momentous arrivals of Spacecraft Dawn to the dwarf planet Ceres (130 days later), and of Spacecraft New Horizons to the dwarf planets Pluto and Charon (260 days later). It’s also worth mentioning that while AR2192 culminated and subsided on Day 94, it’s X-class activity began 8 days earlier on kin 94. (94 = 47 x 2)


Bringing our attention back to the 11 Wizard year (see yesterday’s post), just a couple moons after the incredible Mars approach, the Sun became so powerfully activated with solar storms it’s almost unbelievable. The solar activity lasted throughout a good portion of Moon 4 of the 11 Wizard year, but was most concentrated from around Day 95 to Day 102 (Moon 4 day 11-18) when it began shattering previous records. The flares were so immense it took months for scientists to get an accurate gauge on their magnitudes, but eventually it was determined that the last and largest flare of the sequence, which was released on Day 102, had a staggering magnitude of X45, more than double that of the previous record holders.


11 Wizard year solar activity

This sequence of solar activity is known as the Halloween Solar Storm of 2003. Note that this took place almost exactly 11 years, or one sunspot cycle (one half of a full solar cycle) before the X-class activity of AR2192:kin-94-oracle

11 Wizard year:
Day 95, kin 248 – Solar Storm intensification
Day 102, kin 255 – Solar Storm culmination

+ 11 years =

9 Moon year:
Day 86, kin 94 – AR2192 intensification
Day 94, kin 102 – AR2192 culmination

Also note that the AR2192 intensification, when X-class activity began, was the solar return of The Great One’s emanation, and was also the same day Comet Siding Spring enveloped Mars with its coma.


9 Moon year:
Day 86, kin 94 = The Great One’s solar return, Siding Spring Mars encounter, AR2192 intensification

Both of these incredible bouts of solar activity coincided closely with the seasonal cross-quarter holy day known to the Celts as Samhain, observed more commonly in the modern era as Halloween / All Saints Day / All Souls Day / Day of the Dead. This cross-quarter point was also observed by the Maya, and it is no accident that the Ux Lut K’uh emanations took place at this same time of year, from Day 86-104. Actually, the “Day of the Dead” is still observed in a traditional manner by indigenous Maya people in Momostenango to this day, who claim that it precedes the introduction of Christianity; and Michael Grofe suggests in his landmark dissertation (p.125) that the Jack-o-lanterns of Halloween actually have their origin (or one of their origins) in precolumbian Mesoamerica. We can see this echoed in the Popol Vuh when Hun Hunahpu has his head confused with a calabash gourd. Furthermore, we can see the head of The Great One depicted as an incense burner in the form of a supernatural skull on Pakal’s famous sarcophagus lid. All in all this adds up to some very strong connections of the gourd to the supernatural skull to the incense burner that suggest the modern Jack-o-lantern custom is not so modern afterall. (See the 9 Moon PAN report for much more detail.)



(Jack-o-lantern image source:

This is all the more intriguing being that, as mentioned, the culmination of AR2192’s X-class activity took place while the sunspot appeared to be in the form of a “Giant Skull”.

Going back to the 11 Wizard year, we’ve noted here and in yesterday’s post the following key events that took place that year: The completion of the main body of the Pyramid Hologram with Stone 1320, the incredibly close Mars approach, the record-shattering solar activity, and the Venus Transit. Some of you may also recall the world-wide observance, just four days following the release of the X45-class flare, of something known as the “Harmonic Concordance“.

The Harmonic Concordance, first identified five years earlier during the 6 Moon year, took place from Moon 4 day 22-23 of the 11 Wizard year, and included the following events: A full lunar eclipse, a grand sextile astrological alignment (if you include the dwarf planet Chiron), and the occurrence of Dreamspell kin 259-260, precisely 260 days before the beginning of the follwing (12 Storm) Dreamspell year. The full lunar eclipse is even more noteworthy being that, as I hope at least some of my readers are aware by now, this same time of year corresponds to the base of the lunar almanacs in the Dresden and Paris Codicies. (Specifically, the beginning of the 13-Moon count of the Paris almanac, which takes the same base as the Dresden eclipse table, corresponds to the window from Moon 4 day 17-24 (Day 101-108) or so.

Adding on to the incredible connections Gar 34 has drawn to this same year and his own personal experience, this happened to be the same year during which, after having travelled to Mesoamerica for the first time and reading Earth Ascending the previous year, I read Jose’s books The Mayan Factor, Surfers of the Zuvuya, and Time and the Technosphere, all for the first time, and began tracking the daily Dreamspell count. Perhaps one day more stories will be told about all this.

In conclusion, note that the X45-class flare on Moon 4 day 18 was Dreamspell kin 255 (see the previous post “Radiant Spica, The Red Books, and Visions of The Flood“), while the thirteenth anniversary of the event, coming up on Moon 4 day 18 of the current 11 Storm year, will be Dreamspell kin 60, equivalent to the 8 Ajaw sign of Pakal.

Day 93 and the Wanderers’ Dance


Today, as I write this, is Day 93 of the Dreamspell solar year. Yesterday, as we have already seen, was the solar return of the emanation of Sun Shield Lord, hero twin of Palenque, which took place on 13 Kimi, Dreamspell kin 93. The most recent galactic return of the twin kin 93 took place 218 days ago, on Moon 9 day 16, five haab (= 5 x 365 days) following the twin Valum Votan’s ascension. This also coincided with the incredibly close approach of the twin comets 252P and BA14 on Moon 9 day 15-16, kin 92-93.

The number 93 is also related to the discovery of another pair of twin comets, Comet Q1 PanSTARRS and Comet Q2 Lovejoy, which occurred on Moon 1 day 22-23 of the 9 Moon year, exactly 93 days following the ascension of Bolon Ik. This was the cosmic confirmation of the Lover’s Galactic Reunion code 115:151:511, first presented in the essay “The Ascension of Bolon Ik: Raising the World Tree of the Second Creation“, written before the comets were discovered.

To summarize, Bolon Ik ascended 511 days following the closing of the cycle 4 Ajaw 3 Kank’in, and 1150 days following the ascension of Valum Votan, on the traditional day 8 Chuen, kin 151, and on Dreamspell 3 Mirror, kin 198, being 151 days before the galactic return of Valum’s ascension (kin 198 + 151 days = kin 89). The timing also involved intervals of 31 days (see “The Ascension of Bolon Ik: Raising the World Tree of the Second Creation”, and the 10 Wizard PAN report) that culminated with the discovery, 93 (= 31 x 3) days later, of Comet Q2 Lovejoy on kin 31, Overtone Monkey code 5:11 (or 11:5), the first Telektonon Lovers’ Reunion of the 9 Moon year.

The resonance of the number 93 will remain powerfully activated for a number of years. Here’s what Day 93 has in store for us:

Day 93, 11 Storm year = Today

Day 93, 12 Seed year = Jupiter conjunct Sun (alignment of Jupiter, Sun, and Earth)

Day 93, 13 Moon year = Venus inferior conjunction (alignment of Sun, Venus, and Earth)

Day 93, 1 Wizard year = Double Clear Sign: Dreamspell kin 106 & traditional 8 Ajaw

Day 93, 2 Storm year = Clear Sign: Dreamspell kin 211 (Venus Transit return)

Day 93, 3 Seed year = Harmonic Convergence galactic return: Dreamspell kin 56

Day 93, 4 Moon year = Venus superior conjunction (alignment of Venus, Sun, and Earth)

This last event will actually take place on Day 89, but the ideal 4-year harmonic is still in place. (Also note the connection to the kin (89 & 93) of the twin emanations.)

Aside from the Sun and Earth, the two main bodies involved in these Day 93 synchronizations over the coming years are Venus and Jupiter, although Mars (and, through holonomy, the entire solar system) is also involved. Let’s now look at the connection of these alignments to two other particularly activated times of the year.

First we turn to Moon 12 day 8-10, being most notably the days of the recent Venus Transits, which took place on Moon 12 day 10 of the 11 Wizard year and Moon 12 day 8 of the 6 Wizard year. The most recent occurrence of Moon 12 day 8, during this past 10 Wizard year, coincided with both the superior conjunction of Venus and the solar opposition of Mars (aligment of Venus, Sun, Earth, and Mars). This was a very special Venus conjunction in which the alignment between Venus, the Sun, and Earth was essentially perfect, with Venus positioned directly behind the Sun (a Venusian eclipse, so to speak), very similar to the recent transits, only with Venus on the other side of the Sun. As for the current 11 Storm year, the upcoming Moon 12 day 10 will coincide with Jupiter’s station from retrograde to direct apparent motion — an event of surprising significance to the ancient Mayan astronomers.

Moon 12 day 10, 11 Wizard year = Venus Transit

Moon 12 day 8, 6 Wizard year = Venus Transit

Moon 12 day 8, 10 Wizard year = Venus superior conjunction & Mars opposition
(alignment of Venus, Sun Earth, and Mars)

Moon 12 day 10, 11 Storm year = Jupiter station direct

Another time of year that draws our attention is Moon 2 day 5-7 (Days 33-35), which coincided with the most recent conjunction between Venus and Jupiter, on Day 33 of the current 11 Storm year. In addition to the conjunction with Venus, Jupiter was also involved in a noteworthy encounter with the Spacecraft Juno, which, on this same day, came closer to the planet’s surface than had any (known) spacecraft before it.

This close approach occurred 54 days following Juno’s entry into Jupiter’s orbit, which took place on Moon 13 day 8 of the 10 Wizard year. Although I did not know about Juno’s impending arrival when I wrote it, the essay “Planetary Enchantment and the Turn of the Piktun” was focused on the importance of this same day. I can’t go over everything here, but one of the key harmonies involved the 115:151:511 recombinant triplet of the Lover’s Galactic Reunion, being that the Psi-Chrono of Moon 13 day 8 is 11 Serpent, code 11:5 (or 5:11), while the traditional count was Bolon Ik’s ascension sign, 8 Chuen, equivalent to kin 151. So it was amazing to learn that Jupiter and Juno (Zeus and Hera), who have what is quite possibly the most famously fraught love relationship in all mythology, were reunited under the influence of the Lover’s Galactic Reunion on this very day!

So, inclusive of 55 days (= 11 x 5 = Lover’s Reunion 11:5 harmonic) we had this sequence:

Moon 13 day 8 – Juno enters Jupiter’s orbit; Lovers Galactic Reunion code harmonies

+ 54 days =

Moon 2 day 5 – Juno’s record-setting close approach to Jupiter

Note that Moon 2 day 5, being Day 33, also indicates the reunion of Votan and Bolon Ik: 11 + 22 = 33. And, bringing us back to the subject at hand, Jupiter was conjunct Venus, named for the goddess of love, on this same day!

The Jupiter-Juno/Venus event on Day 33 of the current 11 Storm year also happened to take place on the same day as the discovery of the sizeable Asteroid 2016 QA2, which then passed extremely close by Earth — within .22 lunar distances, or about one fifth the distance of the Moon — on the next day, Day 34. The next day after that, Day 35, was the solar return of Pakal’s ascension.

Moon 2 day 5 – Juno’s Jupiter approach; Venus & Jupiter conjunct; discovery of QA2

Moon 2 day 6 – QA2 passes within .22 lunar distances of Earth

Moon 2 day 7 – solar return of Pakal’s ascension

As presented in the PAN tribute, this is also related to the ascension of Hunbatz Men, which took place just 8 days later and coincided with the discovery and extremely close approach of another sizeable asteroid, Asteroid 2016 RB1. Asteroid RB1 came even closer than did QA2, at just .1 lunar distances, or one tenth the distance of the Moon; and both asteroids, while unlikely to have been deadly, are large enough to have generated some serious fireworks had they hit. (RB1 has a diameter around 10 meters and QA2 around 30.)

Moon 2 day 14 – discovery of RB1

Moon 2 day 15 – death of Hunbatz Men

Moon 2 day 16 – RB1 passes within .1 lunar distances of Earth

As discussed in the previous post “Present Zuvuya of Prophecies Future“, this marks another highly activated time of year. Next year, on the one-year anniversary of RB1’s discovery, Moon 2 day 14 will coincide with the culminating alignment between Jupiter and Spica, discussed in the previous post “Radiant Spica, The Red Books, and Visions of The Flood“.

11 Storm year, Moon 2 day 14-16 = Hunbatz Men ascension; RB1 discovery & encounter

+ 1 year =

12 Seed year, Moon 2 day 14 = Jupiter conjunct Spica (7 Kawak traditional)

The ascension of Hunbatz Men on Moon 2 day 15 was Dreamspell kin 001 and traditional 7 Men, exactly 780-days, or one Mars cycle, before the inferior conjunction of Venus that will take place exactly 2 years from today.

Hunbatz Men ascension on kin 001 + 1 Mars cycle
= Venus inferior conjunction on kin 001
= Today + 365 x 2 days

For those interested these planetary synchronizations are worthy of close study — the zuvuya loops are just off the charts!

Going back to the Venus/Sun/Earth/Mars alignment that took place on Moon 12 day 8 of this past 10 Wizard year, note that, as originally presented in the article “Beyond the Threshold: Galactic Synchronization, Blood Moons, and the Creation of a Meaningful Future“, this was the last Mars opposition preceding the beginning of the year of the Red Cosmic Moon, when Mars opposition will coincide with a full lunar eclipse. This is the real HEART of the matter.

The Mars approach that ushers in the Red Cosmic Moon year will bring the red planet incredibly close to Earth, nearly as close as it was during the memorable approach of the 11 Wizard year, when it was closer than it had been in nearly 60,000 years.

11 Wizard year, Moon 2 day 5 = Mars opposition at 34.6 million miles, closest in 59,635 years

13 Moon year, Moon 1 day 2 = Full lunar eclipse; Mars opposition at 36 million miles

Both of these remarkable Mars approaches coincide closely with solar anniversaries of primary significance to the life of Pakal. To appreciate the full synchronization let’s go back one year before the close approach of the 11 Wizard year to Moon 2 day 5 of the 10 Moon year. On this day a momentous discovery took place at Palenque when archaeologists uncovered a throne at Temple XXI that belonged to Pakal’s grandson K’inich Ahkal Mo’ Nahb. This led, two days later, on the solar return of Pakal’s ascension, to the discovery of an attached panel that depicts Pakal’s return from the otherworld.

10 Moon year:
Day 33: Discovery of K’inich Ahkal Mo’ Nahb’s throne
Day 35 (solar return of Pakal’s ascension): Discovery of panel depicting Pakal’s zuvuya return

+ 1 year =

11 Wizard year:
Day 33: Closest Mars encounter with Earth in 59,635 years

(Note that this interval from the 10 Moon year to the 11 Wizard year marked the placement of stone 1320, and the completion of the main body of the pyramid hologram, following Pakal’s ascension.)

Then, the new baktun’s first full lunar eclipse (the kin 167 Blood Moon) also coincided with Mars’ opposition; and a full lunar eclipse will again coincide with Mars’ opposition, this one nearly as close as that of the 11 Wizard year, at the beginning of the Cosmic Moon year, precisely on the anniversary of Pakal’s accession to the throne:

Pakal’s accession 5 Lamat 1 Mol = Moon 1 day 2

Love Moon eclipse & Mars opposition 7 K’an 17 Xul = Moon 1 day 2

To make the connections even stronger, just prior to its opposition on Moon 2 day 5 of the 11 Wizard year, Mars stationed retrograde on Moon 1 day 4, appearing essentially stationary on Moon 1 day 2 as well; and just after it’s opposition on Moon 1 day 2 of the 13 Moon year it will station direct on Moon 2 day 5 !!

There is much more to cover as we approach the upcoming Love Moon phase of Galactic Synchronization. For now the important thing is that we begin to make these harmonies of the Lovers’ Galactic Reunion conscious. In doing so we are preparing to harness this potent energy with the sails of our Timeship Earth, to ride the celestial winds and waves out of these turbulent waters and into a full realization of our potential as lovers and dreamers.

Harmonic Convergence Ascension Code 22:41:89


Today is the 89th day of the year of the Blue Spectral Storm, Dreamspell kin 47, long count date 1 Imix. This marks exactly 41 cycles of the traditional Maya tzolkin, 41 x 260 days, from the Harmonic Convergence world-wide meditiation, initiated on the 22nd day of the 8 Wizard year, long count date 1 Imix: Imix + 41 x 260 days = 1 Imix

Today also marks the first of 41 days to the day 2 Imix, traditional sign of Valum Votan’s ascension:

41 tzolkin of Harmonic Convergence + 41 kin = 2 Imix = Valum ascension sign

Note that the initiation of the 41 tzolkin cycles on Day 22 and their completion today on Day 89 codes the Dreamspell kin numbers of Bolon Ik’s birth and Valum’s death. The numbers 22 and 89 also correspond to the traditional and Dreamspell signs, respectively, of the day on which the divine progenitor Muwaan Mat brought forth The Great One, firstborn of the Ux Lut K’uh:

Emanation of The Great One 9 Ik’ = Red Spectral Moon Dreamspell

9 Ik’ = kin 22

Red Spectral Moon = kin 89

Today’s Harmonic Convergence interval:

Day 22 + 41 tzolkin = Day 89

Keeping in mind the present 5-day window of Solar-Galactic Synchronization 27:53 (corresponding to the 5-days (inclusive) from the solar return of The Great One to that of his twin Sun Shield Lord), note the impressively succinct convergences of this 22:41:89 harmonic:

Dreamspell kin of Bolon Ik
Traditional sign of The Great One
Solar day of the Harmonic Convergence

Traditional sign of Valum’s ascension
Tzolkin cycles from Harmonic Convergence to Solar-Galactic Synchronization 27:53

Dreamspell sign of Valum’s ascension
Dreamspell sign of The Great One’s emanation
Solar day of Solar-Galactic Synchronization 27:53
