Coming to Terms With the Ancient Ones

13.0.3.16.16 3 Kib 19 Sak  :  1.29.4.20 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.
(Chumayel)

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 9.16.4.10.8 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 = 9.16.4.10.8 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 9.13.13.15.0 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, 9.8.11.6.12 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 9.11.1.2.0 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 1.30.7.22 kin 253. In the meantime there are preparations to be made…

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 1.18.5.3.6 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 13.0.0.0.0 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 9.9.2.4.8 5 Lamat 1 Mol = Moon 1 day 2

Love Moon eclipse & Mars opposition 13.0.5.12.4 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 13.0.3.16.1 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 12.18.14.5.1 1 Imix:

12.18.14.5.1 Imix + 41 x 260 days = 13.0.3.16.1 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 1.18.5.3.2 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:

22:
Dreamspell kin of Bolon Ik
Traditional sign of The Great One
Solar day of the Harmonic Convergence

41:
Traditional sign of Valum’s ascension
Tzolkin cycles from Harmonic Convergence to Solar-Galactic Synchronization 27:53

89:
Dreamspell sign of Valum’s ascension
Dreamspell sign of The Great One’s emanation
Solar day of Solar-Galactic Synchronization 27:53

Muwaan Mat: The Progenitor and the Avatar

Muwaan Mat is one of the key figures of both the myth and the history of ancient Palenque. As a mythical ancestor Muwaan Mat is the progenitor of the Ux Lut K’uh, Palenque’s holy trinity, or “three-born-together-gods”. As a historical ruler Muwaan Mat acceded to the throne of Palenque during the city’s darkest hour, when, under continual attack from the formidable Calakmul and allies, it’s royal bloodline had been severed and it’s independence seriously threatened. Once having secured the throne, this avatar of the ancient one soon guided a young Pakal to his own accession, which took place just a few years later when the two began a joint rulership that lasted through the end of the katun (9.10.0.0.0), after which time Pakal stepped into full authority. I think we all know how that worked out.

Because the texts of Pakal’s funerary chamber conflate Muwaan Mat the avatar with Pakal’s mother Ix Sak K’uk’, it is thought that the actual human personality behind the mythical persona was Ix Sak K’uk’ herself; just as Muwaan Mat gave birth to the Ux Lut K’u, so Ix Sak K’uk’ gave birth to Pakal.

As I have mentioned previously, Muwaan Mat the progenitor gave birth to the Ux Lut K’uh at the same time of year that Mawaan Mat the avatar, Sak K’uk’, acceded to the throne of Palenque. In fact, Sak K’uk’s accession took place directly within the short four-day window of the emanations of the triad’s two firstborn, Palenque’s hero twins, and this four-day window also corresponds to the piktun coronation 1.0.0.0.0.8 5 Lamat:

Ux Lut K’uh twin emanation:
1.18.5.3.2 9 Ik’ = Moon 4 day 2
1.18.5.3.6 13 Kimi = Moon 4 day 6

Muwaan Mat Sak K’uk’ accession:
9.8.19.7.18 9 Etz’nab = Moon 4 day 3

Piktun coronation:
1.0.0.0.0.8 = Moon 4 day 4-6

(Those not yet aware may also be interested to learn that the Dreamspell kin of the emanation of The Great One on 9 Ik’ is Red Spectral Moon. The twin is 2 Skywalker. The birth of the triplet Unen K’awiil will be mentioned briefly below, and at more length another time.)

Taking a look at the 13-baktun Wave Harmonic of History, note that Muwaan Mat’s genesis of the Ux Lut K’uh took place between the completion of the 38th and 39th katuns, correlate kin 38 and 39, same as the Dreamspell kin of the piktun (1.0.0.0.0.0 = Dreamspell kin 38-40):

1.18.5.3.2 = Katun 39 = correlate kin 39

Then, not long after giving birth (well, not long for someone nearly 800 years of age) the progenitor was seated in rulership on 2.0.0.10.2 9 Ik, Dreamspell kin 80 — the first occurrence of kin 80 following the completion of 40 katuns:

Muwaan Mat accession 2.0.0.10.2 (= 40 katuns + 202 days) = kin 80

80 = 40 x 2; 80 calendar rounds = 40 Venus rounds

(As noted previously this took place on Moon 2 day 14, the same time of year at which the piktun’s galactic alignment currently takes place.)

 

Solar-Galactic Synchronization 27:53

As is well known, the piktun coronation will coincide with the completion of 80 calendar rounds, 80 x 52 x 365 days, from the day of Pakal’s accession. A parallel circumstance that seems to have gone unnoticed until now is this: The piktun coronation sequence will also mark 80 solar-galactic cycles, 80 x 52 tropical years, from the accession of Pakal’s predecessor Muwaan Mat Sak K’uk’, which took place exactly 27 solar-galactic cycles ago today as I am writing this:

Accession of Muwaan Mat Sak K’uk’ 9.8.19.7.18 9 Etz’nab = Moon 4 day 3, kin 45

+ 27 solar-galactic cycles =

Today = Moon 4 day 3, kin 45

+ 53 solar-galactic cycles =

Piktun coronation day 5-7 = 1.0.0.0.0.5 4 Manik = Moon 4 day 3, kin 45

As you can see, this puts us in very powerful resonance with the 80 cycles today and for the next few to follow, right at the harmonic position 27:53.

This is also currently the sidereal position of the beginning of the long count creation era:

13.0.0.0.0 4 Ajaw 8 Kumk’u = Moon 1 day 17
Moon 1 day 17 + 73 days (= sidereal drift over 13 baktuns) = Moon 4 day 5

 

Witnesses of 80 Rounds

As discussed previously in the essay “Planetary Enchantment and the Turn of the Piktun”, the cycle of 80 rounds was also observed by the Mixtec Lord Eight Deer, who performed a very special New Fire ceremony to mark the completion of 80 solar-galactic cycles from the beginning of the long count era. Note that rather than timing the observance precisely to the zero day, 4 Ajaw 8 Kumk’u (Moon 1 day 17), Eight Deer’s 80-cycle ceremony took place 15 days earlier on Moon 1 day 2, the solar anniversary of Pakal’s accession, from which the 80 calendar rounds to the piktun coronation are reckoned:

Pakal’s accession 9.9.2.4.8 5 Lamat = Moon 1 day 2 — 80 rounds begin
+ 432 years =
Mixtec New Fire 10.11.0.9.13 9 Ben = Moon 1 day 2 — 80 rounds complete

Eight Deer’s nominal birth sign (8 Deer) is the Mixtec equivalent of 8 Manik, kin 47, Dreamspell sign of the piktun coronation:

1.0.0.0.0.8 5 Lamat = Dreamspell kin 46-48 = Eight Deer equivalent

(Of course the number 47 is central to the prophecy codes of Palenque as I have previously covered in detail.)

Further connecting Lord Eight Deer with this synchronization, he lived to the age of 52 years, precisely one solar-galactic cycle. For his part, Pakal lived to the age of 80 years. So we have the two factors of the 80×52 cycle coded right into the lifespans of the two cycle witnesses Pakal and Lord Eight Deer.

 

Into the Pyramid Hologram

This brings us to the number matrices of Valum Votan known as the Synchronotron 21:21. This information, released in the final years of Valum’s life, is based on a template of 21 x 21 = 441 “Base Matrix Units” (BMUs). Of these 441 units, note that the outermost circuit is composed of 80:

synchronotron-outer-circuit-80

Synchronotron 21:21 outer circuit of 80 units

Additionally, these 80 outer units are of two primary types: 52 correspond to what Valum referred to as “outer time”, while the remaining 28 correspond to “radial time” — the key factors 52 and (52 + 28 =) 80 once again.

(I don’t claim to have all the answers, but “outer time” might be thought of as sequentiality, and “radial time” as present awareness.)

In this light we might view the number 80 as an integration of the dynamics of “outer time” with those of “radial time”, in preparation for entry into the higher dimensional 19:19: Pyramid Hologram.

As the Galactic Wizard Gar 34 has shown, the primary interdimensional hologram is actually a matrix of 19 x 19 units corresponding to the inner 361 units of the 21:21. (21 x 21 = 441; 441 – 80 = 361 = 19 x 19). It was only after the 80 years of his life, his journey through the realm of outer manifestation, that Pakal entered within his Pyramid of Ascension; just as Pakal ascended during his 81st year, so the portal into the 19:19 hologram corresponds to Synchronotron BMU 81.

units-one-and-81

As Gar has further shown, these patterns are entrained into an even more elaborate matrix — the OMG 33:33. Nested within the center of this matrix of 33 x 33 (= 1089 total) units, the 19:19 Pyramid Hologram begins on OMG unit 729. We may then draw the following equivalencies:

Pyramid Hologram unit 1 = BMU 81 = OMG 729

units-one-81-and-729

As discussed in Gar’s previous article “The Prophecy of the Pyramid and the Cube Part 4: The Infra-Cube“, the two numbers 81 and 729 happen to be, respectively, the square and cube of the number 9:

9 x 9 = 81
9 x 9 x 9 = 729

Nine, of course, is itself the square of 3:

3 x 3 = 9

lo-shu-magic-square

Lo Shu magic square of 9

This primary matrix of 3 takes us back through the proto-historical roots of these types of interdimensional wisdom teachings to the Lo Shu (“the writing of the River Lo”) of ancient China, a magic square diagram said to have arisen from the waters of the Lo River on the back of a turtle. (Thanks Turtle! As if the thirteen moons wasn’t enough!)

This same fractal pattern is manifest in both the Synchronotron 21 and the OMG 33 (21 x 21 = 9 x 49; 33 x 33 = 9 x 121), perfectly harmonized by the 19:19 Pyramid Hologram, which begins with the interdimensional integration of the powers of 9:

19:19 Hologram unit 1 = BMU 9×9 = OMG 9x9x9

omg-ultracube-and-synchronotron-time-dimensions

Looking further into the relationship of the matricies of 21 and 33, note that Synchronotron BMU 33 is equivalent in the (Synchronic Matrix) Buk Xok tzolkin overlay to kin 81.

bmu-33-kin-81

Furthermore, as explained by Valum in his Intergalactic Bulletin 3, the Synchronotron practice involves a “radial method” of meditation, in which there are “8 radially organized sets of numbers that are to be committed to memory and imprinted. … In each set of 8 there are 10 numbers. Adding the 441, means that there are 81 frequencies or master units.”

synchronotron-81-master-radial-units

Synchronotron radial master units

8 x 10 = 80 radial units + 1 zero point 441 = 81. So again we see the outer manifestation of the 80 and an interdimensional shift at 81.

(Also, the bulletin was written by Valum on the 81st galactic return of the discovery of Pakal’s tomb.)

The number 81 is also known as the “Palenque Moon Ratio” — a precise equivalence of 81 synodic lunations to 2392 days (2392 / 81 = 29.53086… days) evident in the city’s inscriptions. This ratio also informs the Dresden Codex eclipse table, an almanac of 405 = 81 x 5 lunations, or approximately 33 years. (405 lunations = 32 years and 272 days.)

 

The Pythagorean Tetraktys, The Platonic Lambda, and Harmonic 27

pythagorean-tetraktys

Pythagorean Tetraktys

Another number matrix with potential relevance to this discussion is the Pythagorean Tetraktys, especially as elaborated upon by later schools of Greek thought. Not to take anything away from their incredible mathematical achievements, but the ancient Greeks didn’t have a fully developed concept of mathematical zero; the Tetraktys may be the closest they came to such a thing, and, at least from a philosophical standpoint, it’s not really that far off; it is, in essence, a formal demonstration of the equivalence of the monad (one) to the decad (ten). One and ten are considered to be the same thing, not unlike the case of our modern decimal system in which the only difference between 10 and 1 is the addition of a zero (or the placement of the decimal point). There’s plenty to explore with the Tetraktys, but for our purposes here, the key permutation is what’s known as the Platonic Lambda, which developed out of Pythagorean interpretations of Plato’s Timaeus and was codified no later (although probably much earlier) than the 2nd century AD by Nichomachus of Gersa.

platonic-lambda

Platonic Lambda

The Platonic Lamda has two orders of progression, one of binary doubling (1, 2, 4, and 8) down the left side of the Tetraktys and the other of trinary tripling (1, 3, 9, 27) down the right side. While we’ve covered the numbers 3 and 9 and their relationship to the numbers 81 and 729 in the discussion above, note that 27 was the missing harmonic interval:

3 x 3 = 9

3 x 3 x 3 = 27

9 x 9 = 3 x 27 = 81

9 x 9 x 9 = 27 x 27 = 729

Could it then be more than happenstance that the position of the number 27 at the bottom right of the Tetraktys diagram is analagous to the position of the numbers 81 and 729 at the bottom right of the 19 matrix?

synchronotron-and-platonic-lambda

(Note on semantics: I say “bottom right” in order to facilitate the reader’s ability to locate the numbers I’m talking about. In terms of Synchronotron meditation it’s actually front left.)

Recall that we are, right now, exactly 27 solar-galactic cycles from the accession of Muwaan Mat, on our way to 80 at turn of the piktun. This means that the 53 cycles that we are now entering begin with the completion of 27, and reach completion at the beginning of 81.

Solar-Galactic Synchronization 27 + 53 = 80
80 + 1 = 27 x 3

As my previous essay “Planetary Enchantment and the Turn of the Piktun” demonstrates, this 81st cycle will start out with some incredible celestial synchronizations, including a full solar eclipse in alignment with galactic center and a special Lord of the Dawn Venus emergence, all before the end of the 11 Storm year.

 

The Cube in the Cross

pecked-crosses

Mesoamerican Pecked Cross Designs

Before concluding let’s have a look at one more ancient source of these codes: the pecked crosses of Mesoamerica. These designs, made of small holes carved in stone, are fairly widespread throughout Mesoamerica, not specific to any one culture (although the only site I can specifically name off the top of my head is Teotihuacan), and take on a number of different shapes and styles, although the common feature is that of bisecting perpendicular lines and an outer radius, usually in the form of two concentric circles. I’m not even going to say anything about the outer radius, because I seem to get a different number every time I try to count them, but based on the photographs and drawings that I have examined, most of the crosses appear to be composed of 4 radial arms of 20 units each, plus one central point: 20 x 4 + 1 = 80 + 1. However, there seems to have been a variable version or versions, one of which was 4 radial arms of 10 units plus the center point; in other words, two bisecting perpendiculars of length 21, defining a square equivalent to the Synchronotron 21:21. Actually, if you look closely at the drawing above, the one on the right, you can see that it looks to be a hybrid of the matrix of 21 and the matrix of 19, and similar in form to the rune Gar 33. Sloppy rendering, or signs of the masters’ travels through time?— you tell me.

 

Birth of the Bab: Sacred Day of the 19:19

Today also happens to be a sacred day for those of Baha’i faith, the solar return of their prophet the Bab. The solar return of the other central figure of the faith, Baha’u’llah, will be observed in 23 days on Moon 4 day 26. Notice that these two figures were both born within the 33-day alignment window between Spica/Arcturus and the Pleiades with which this series of posts is engaged. The timing, in terms of the anniversaries, is not unlike that of Palenque’s Ux Lut K’uh:

Emanation of The Great One 1.18.5.3.2 9 Ik = Moon 4 day 2
Birth of the Bab = Moon 4 day 3

Emanation of Unen K’awiil 1.18.5.4.0 1 Ajaw = Moon 4 day 20
Birth of Baha’u’llah = Moon 4 day 26

The Baha’i faith shares many values in common with PAN, one being that of a harmonic standard of time. The Baha’i calendar is composed of a primary yearly cycle of 19 months of 19 days, the same mathematical code as the 19:19 Pyramid Hologram.

Present Zuvuya of Prophecies Future

 

We are currently passing through an important window of time that connects us to the beginning of the next piktun, when 20 baktuns, that is an interval of roughly 8,000 years, will have passed from the long count zero date 13.0.0.0.0 4 Ajaw 8 Kumk’u.

The completion of the piktun at 1.0.0.0.0.0 10 Ajaw is recorded in prophetic context at Palenque’s Pyramid of the Inscriptions. Of special importance is the piktun’s opening sequence of 8 days, complete on 1.0.0.0.0.8 5 Lamat 1 Mol, which the text also records. The calendar round date 5 Lamat 1 Mol is the same as the date of Pakal’s accession to the kingship of Palenque on 9.9.2.4.8 5 Lamat 1 Mol, and the day of the prophecy 8 days following the completion of the piktun will mark 80 calendar rounds, 80 occurrences of 5 Lamat 1 Mol, from Pakal’s accession.

9.9.2.4.8 5 Lamat 1 Mol accesssion + 80 calendar rounds = 1.0.0.0.0.8 5 Lamat 1 Mol

Reckoning from today, the 8-day window of prophecy will be opening up in precisely 53 solar-galactic cycles’ time:

Today = 13.0.3.15.15 8 Men = Moon 3 day 27, kin 41
+ 53 solar-galactic cycles (= 53 x 52 tropical years)
= 1.0.0.0.0.1 11 Imix = Moon 3 day 27, kin 41

Note that the above correlation is based on a precise astronomical measure of the tropical year, and is not quite the same as the correlation to the modern Gregorian calendar. According to the Gregorian correlation, the first day of the next piktun will be October 14, while today is October 16.

13.0.3.15.15 8 Men = Moon 3 day 27, kin 41 = Oct 16 Gregorian
+ 53 x 52 = 2756 tropical years
= 1.0.0.0.0.1 11 Imix = Moon 3 day 27, kin 41= Oct 14 Gregorian

The difference of two days is minor, and it’s reasonable to allow for a three-day leeway, such that 1.0.0.0.0.1 = Moon 3 day 25-27, which I have found productive. (See previous esssay Planetary Enchantment and the Turn of the Piktun.) In this scenario:

The completion of the piktun = 1.0.0.0.0.0 10 Ajaw = Moon 3 day 24-26, kin 38-40
(Oct 13, 4772 AD)

First day of the piktun = 1.0.0.0.0.1 11 Imix = Moon 3 day 25-27, kin 39-41
(Oct 14, 4772 AD)

Piktun coronation = 1.0.0.0.0.8 5 Lamat 1 Mol = Moon 4 day 4-6, kin 46-48
(Oct 21, 4772 AD)

These three-day windows are similar to the three-day warning stations of the Dresden Codex eclipse table. As my previous writings have shown, the Dresden eclipse table indicates special connections between the baktun shifts at 8.0.0.0.0 9 Ajaw, 13.0.0.0.0 4 Ajaw 3 Kank’in, and the piktun shift of 20 baktuns at 1.0.0.0.0.0 10 Ajaw. One key to this is the relationship of the tzolkin to the tropical year, common to the year of the 8-baktun shift, the year of the eclipse table’s base date, and the year of the piktun shift:

1.0.0.0.0.0 10 Ajaw = Moon 3 day 24-26
9.16.4.8.0 10 Ajaw = Moon 3 day 24 (proximal to 9.16.4.10.8 12 Lamat eclipse base)
8.0.0.2.0 10 Ajaw = Moon 3 day 26 (first full eclipse of the ninth baktun)

(The difference of 1 moon between 10 Ajaw and the eclipse table base on 12 Lamat, as gone over (and over again) in my previous writings, indicates the precessional shift of approximately 28-days from Baktun 8 to Baktun 13, and the nearly identical sidereal positions (in alignment with the Pleiades) of the eclipses that took place during the year of the 8-baktun shift and the year of the 13-baktun shift.)

This time of year, from the end of Moon 3 to the beginning of Moon 5 is highly activated by the superposition of a number of key Galactic Mayan zuvuya portals, including the following:

Ux Lut K’uh emanation = Moon 4 day 2-20
Paris Codex 13 Moon count interval = Moon 4 day 17-24
Dresden eclipse table implied interval = Moon 4 day 23-27
Temple XIV ceremonial interval = Moon 4 day 18 – Moon 5 day 2

This culminates in the “New Fire” Pleiadian alignment on Moon 5 day 4. There is much to be said about all of it, some covered in my previous writings, and there are other important Galactic Mayan references to this window from Yaxchilan and the Chilam Balam texts, but for now lets keep our focus at the beginning of this interval and take a look at its historical significance.

It is indeed a focal point of historical reckoning as Moon 3 day 25-26 marks the anniversary of the implementation of the Gregorian calendar, when, in 1582 AD, the Julian date of October 4 (Moon 3 day 25, kin 229) was followed the next day with the Gregorian date of October 15 (Moon 3 day 26, kin 230).

Gregorian implementation = Moon 3 day 25-26

Piktun = 1.0.0.0.0.0 10 Ajaw = Moon 3 day 24-26

Moon 3 day 25 also happens to be one of the days upon which observation of the imperial holiday “Columbus Day” takes place according to current U.S. federal custom. According to the Washington Post, “Columbus Day” was first made a federal holiday in 1937 due to pressure from the Catholic Church, which was interested in the establishment of a federal holiday devoted to a Catholic figure. At first the holiday was placed on October 12, as Columbus was famously discovered by indigenous Americans on Guanahani Island on October 12 in 1492. However, due to the difference between the Julian calendar of 1492 and the Gregorian calendar of 1937, the October 12 U.S. observation was not a precise solar anniversary of the event.

The actual solar anniversary of the Columbus event corresponds to Gregorian October 21. In 1971 the U.S. altered the observation so that it now takes place on “the second Sunday of October”, which can be anything from October 8-14; but this remains disassociated from the actual solar anniversary of the event. Interestingly, the timing of the Columbus Day observation from October 8-14 more closely matches the Gregorian implementation — dynamics certainly worth making conscious, especially in light of the Catholic Church’s influential role in the holiday’s establishment.

Columbus event = Oct 12, 1492 Julian (Oct 21 proleptic Gregorian)

Gregorian event = Oct 14-15 Gregorian (= Oct 4-5 Julian) 1582

“Columbus Day” = Oct 8-14 Gregorian, 1937-present

This means that between October 8 and 14 of every year the United States’ imperial government mandates a federal holiday on behalf of the interests of the Catholic Church. The holiday is ostensibly a recognition of “the discovery of America” ( a misconception to begin with), but the timing evokes the Church’s implementation of the Gregorian calendar, falling directly within the “missing time” interval from October 4-15.

Catholic Church missing time Oct 5-14 1582

U.S. celebrates empire Oct 8-14, 1937-present

(Do note that this “missing time is purely illusory; the Julian date October 4, 1582 is Moon 3 day 25, kin 229, and was followed with October 15, 1582 on the next day, Moon 3 day 26, kin 230.)

The actual solar anniversary of the Columbus event is also interesting in this context, as the window from October 12-21, or from Moon 3 day 23 to Moon 4 day 4, is very near that of the piktun’s 8-day coronation interval:

“Columbus Day” = Moon 3 day 23 (October 12, 1937-1970 Gregorian)
Piktun completion = Moon 3 day 24-26 (1.0.0.0.0.0 10 Ajaw)

Columbus event = Moon 4 day 4 (October 12, 1492 Julian)
Piktun coronation = Moon 4 day 4-6 (1.0.0.0.0.8 5 Lamat 1 Mol)

In the correlation to the piktun that I tend to prefer, 1.0.0.0.0.8 5 Lamat corresponds to Moon 4 day 6, putting it two days past the anniversary of the Columbus event on Moon 4 day 4. This is an interesting correspondence, since the Columbus event on Moon 4 day 4 (of a 7 Storm year) was Dreamspell kin 146, White Electric World-bridger, equivalent to the traditional sign 3 Kimi, and 3 Kimi, being 2 days before 5 Lamat, will then fall within the piktun interval, and precisely on the solar anniversary of the Columbus event:

Moon 4 day 4 of 7 Storm year -10.25:

Columbus arrives at Guanahani Island on kin 146

Moon 4 day 2-4 of 11 Storm year 54.29:

Piktun day 6 = 1.0.0.0.0.6 3 Kimi

So enough about all that! (And anyway there’s the 10 Wizard PAN report if you want more.) What else is going on at this time of year?

We are now, from today, Moon 3 day 27, until the first day of Moon 4, in a special sidereal alignment with not just one but two great stars of primary importance — Spica and Arcturus.

Current sidereal alignments:

Spica solar conjunction = Moon 3 day 27-28
Arcturus solar conjunction = Moon 3 day 28 – Moon 4 day 1

Although at the turn of the piktun this alignment will no longer be taking place at this same time of year, there is another important future zuvuya nexus to consider. This information comes from a temple stairway at Yaxchilan, which records the long count date 9.15.13.6.9 3 Muluk in a special style in which 8 levels above the baktun are all set at 13, like this:

13.13.13.13.13.13.13.13.9.15.13.6.9 3 Muluk

The date 9.15.13.6.9 corresponds to Moon 4 day 2, the same time of year as the piktun coronation interval:

Piktun coronation = Moon 3 day 24 – Moon 4 day 6

9.15.13.6.9 3 Muluk = Moon 4 day 2

Wondering why this particular date would be written in such a way, I realized that the sequence of 13s above the baktun indicate that the numbers will reach a maximum fractal harmonic when all units down to the kin column are set at 13. I then checked the correlation for the long count date 13.13.13.13.13 and found that it also corresponds to this same time of year:

Piktun coronation – Moon 4 day 4-6
9.15.13.6.9 3 Muluk = Moon 4 day 2
13.13.13.13.13 4 Ben = Moon 4 day 3

Both of these future zuvuya loci may be considered in terms of not only their tropical positions (which they share), but theirr sidereal positions (which are separated by more than a month) as well. To begin with 13.13.13.13.13 4 Ben, its sidereal position more than 13 katuns in the future, on Moon 4 day 3, will correspond to the sidereal position of what is now Moon 3 day 27 (the day I am writing this). As stated above, this sidereal position directly targets the solar conjunction of Spica, meaning the long count date 13.13.13.13.13 is precisely calibrated to this great star. (The alignment with Arcturus is also likely to be very close, but because, unlike Spica, Arcturus is far from the ecliptic, projecting it’s future position can be difficult for those lacking special computational aids.)

The Spica alignment is also noteworthy for its harmonic relationship to two other key sidereal locations — the Pleiades and the galactic center. Currently Spica’s solar conjunction takes place on Moon 3 day 27, Pleiadian opposition (indicating the Mesoamerican “New Fire” observation) takes place on Moon 5 day 4, and the galactic alignment takes place on Moon 6 day 9. Notice that this produces identical intervals of 33 days:

Spica conjunction (Moon 3 day 27)
+ 33 days =
“New Fire” Pleiadian opposition (Moon 5 day 4)
+33 days =
Galactic alignment (Moon 6 day 9)

Spica, like the Pleiades and galactic center, is right near the ecliptic and therefore the conjunction with the Sun is very close, and the 33-day harmonic connection Spica-Pleiades-GC should remain fairly stable throughout the 26,000-year precession cycle. In addition, Spica happens to be approximately 260 light years from Earth, which can be compared to the distance of approximately 26,000 light years to the galactic center.  (The distance to the Pleiades is approximately 441 light years.)

I will be exploring the significance of the 33-day intervals in much greater depth in the future. For now let’s turn our attention to the sidereal location that actually corresponds to the piktun completion and coronation. Between now and the completion of the piktun, precession will have shifted the stars by about 39 days relative to the tropical year, meaning the sidereal position of 1.0.0.0.0.0 currently takes place 39 days before Moon 3 day 25, on Moon 2 day 14, while the next 8 days, Moon 2 day 15-22, correspond in turn to the coronation interval from 10 Ajaw to 5 Lamat. Amazingly, Moon 2 day 14 is also the tropical anniversary of the completion of the 8th baktun:

8.0.0.0.0 9 Ajaw = Moon 2 day 14
1.0.0.0.0.0 10 Ajaw = current sidereal position of Moon 2 day 14

During the current 11 Storm year, being 53 solar-galactic cycles before the year of the piktun shift, this sidereal position also corresponded to an eclipse sequence that took place from Moon 2 day 9-24:

Current 11 Storm year (1.29):

Moon 2 day 9 = annular solar eclipse
Moon 2 day 14-22 = sidereal position of piktun interval
Moon 2 day 24 = penumbral lunar eclipse

This also happened to coincide with the death of the Mayan spiritual guide Hunbatz Men, which took place on Moon 2 day 15. This also connects us to the anniversary of the accession of the divine progenitor Muwaan Mat, which took place on Moon 2 day 14 (2.0.0.10.2. 9 Ik’), and to the death of the Muwaan Mat avatar Ix Sak K’uk’ on Moon 2 day 16. (For more see the PAN tribute to Hunbatz Men.)

As I have been tracking in the recent PAN reports, this time of year has been particularly activated since the 7 Storm year:

7 Storm year:

Moon 2 day 19 – Higgs Boson paper released
Moon 2 day 19 – “Inter-universal Geometry” paper publicized
Moon 2 day 19 – Bright flash observed on Jupiter

8 Seed year:

Moon 2 day 20— record breaking flash on Moon – 8 K’an traditional
Moon 2 day 23—record breaking X-ray flare from galactic center

9 Moon year:

Moon 2 day 19 — Large X-ray flare from galactic center
Moon 2 day 19 — Sun releases 2 CMEs & an X-class flare (780-day replay)
Moon 2 day 19 — Rosetta enters orbit around Comet 67P
Moon 2 day 19 — Announcement of Stonehenge civilization discoveries

10 Wizard year:

Moon 2 day 16 — “Superhenge” announcement
Moon 2 day 19 — Homo Naledi announcement – 9 Ben traditional
Moon 2 day 23, kin 164— detection of Gravitational waves

As for the current time of year, as we transition out of Moon 3 and into Moon 4, it has also been highly activated in recent years, but we’ll save that for another post. Before concluding here, let’s take a closer look at some of the astronumerical patterns in play, especially having to do with the number 80.

Taking a look at the piktun completion, we have our window from kin 38 on Moon 3 day 24 to kin 40 on Moon 3 day 26. In the case of Moon 3 day 24, note that this is day 80 of the Dreamspell year. If we prefer the correlation to Moon 3 day 26 instead, note that this is 80 days from the anniversary of Pakal’s accession, from which the 80 calendar rounds are reckoned, as well as being kin 40, which codes the number of “Venus rounds” equivalent to 80 calendar rounds. (1 calendar round = 52 haab; 1 Venus round = 104 haab; 80 x 52 = 40 x 104. See previous essay Planetary Enchantment and the Turn of the Piktun.)  In a related way, the completion of the piktun on 10 Ajaw will take place 80 days following Pakal’s 8 Ajaw birth sign (8 Ajaw + 80 days = 10 Ajaw).

Another calibration to these harmonics was recorded by the galactic masters in the early colonial era, and can be found in both the Chronicles of Oxcutzcab and the books of Chilam Balam. The dates are veiled by Zuvuya language, but they refer to a sequence from the tun ending of 11.16.2.0.0 5 Ajaw 18 Tzek to the next instance of the same calendar round on 11.18.14.13.0 5 Ajaw 18 Tzek, and then to the date 11.18.19.14.0 5 Ajaw 13 Tzek.

Putting the first date aside, 11.18.14.13.0 5 Ajaw 18 Tzek corresponds to Moon 4 day 2, while 11.18.19.14.0 corresponds to Moon 3 day 24.

11.18.14.13.0 5 Ajaw 18 Tzek = Moon 4 day 2
11.18.19.14.0 5 Ajaw 13 Tzek = Moon 3 day 24

1.0.0.0.0.0 10 Ajaw = Moon 3 day 24-26
1.0.0.0.0.8 5 Lamat = Moon 4 day 4-6

Furthermore, the final date 11.18.19.14.0 5 Ajaw 13 Tzek is not only on Dreamspell Day 80, it is also exactly 80 days before the completion of the katun on 11.19.0.0.0 7 Ajaw. Also note that the long count code 11.19 corresponds to the kin code 11:19 of an 11 Storm year, during which the 80 calendar cycle will be complete.

These zuvuya circuits will continue to amplify more and more as we proceed…
