Here is an example of synchronicity as you read important articles through your day, which I hope you do. Meaning, what goes on with the earth holon is in DIRECT alignment with the human body. Jose has page after page in “Earth Ascending” about how as the earth ascends in consciousness all life on it does as well. So think Tzolkonically about the environment. I quote from the article;
“Freshly fallen snow reflects 80 percent of the Sun’s radiative force back into space. But when that mirror-like surface is replaced by deep blue water, about the same percentage of Earth-heating energy is absorbed instead.”
There are a few Mayan archetypes in there. Snow, sun, radiation, space, mirror, deep blue water, and Earth. If you read the article it all mixes in context. Ice and fire are essentially the same. But when Consciousness (crown polar chakra) goes into unconscious dream state (blue night) and reflects (white mirror), synchronicity occurs to wake us up (red earth).
The entire Portal Earth Family in the earth holon are invoked here; Sun, Serpent, Dog and Eagle, each one initiating a color chromatic. Polar bears can easily fit in the White Dog tribe and are evolutionary kin to the dog. That portal is far eastern Russia by the Bering sea in the arctic. The other 3 portal families up there are sun, serpent and eagle; radiation, heat, survival and vision all evoked in the article.
There is a SIGNAL being pulsed by Blue Night tribe from the Yellow Sun chromatic. Blue Night is in the Signal earth family. The other SIGNAL is being pulsed by White Mirror also in the Signal earth family pulsed by Blue Eagle who heads up the blue chromatic in the polar earth family. Are you following? We could add Red Earth tribe in the CORE earth family pulling on our hearts to transduce the message from Blue Eagle. WAKE UP! to your physical connection in the body to the Web of life and to each other. It’s more important than divisive politics or holding fast to party loyalty at the expense of human relationships.
What part does the human family play in the earth ascension? Not all of it; just part! She has a mind and heart of her own so stop blaming humans and denigrating the children for what the universal parents started; the sun and the earth which have been here for billions and billions of years. We’ve only been here for 1 million years. Our power (in this) is limited.
Humans are children that need to love ourselves and each other and the animals. We’re learning to read and write here. Do what you can as an individual but invoke and hold the higher powers in charge with cleaning up the huge household mess. Tell them to stop creating so much solid waste and plastic. Change our food distribution system. Get off fossil fuels and most important, DO FULL DISCLOSURE of all the underground secrets that can help the children of earth live better lives on the surface.

We begin a new wavespell or 13-day cycle today whose affects can be felt as a fearlessness, desire for intelligence and questioning what is true and what is a lie. There is plenty of confusion afoot.
Tomorrow I am deleting my FB Group Time Science and Art, My FB business page Deep Tissue Therapy and Reiki is already gone and my Intuition Up page will be gone. Facebook restricted my Business page illegally and questioned the integrity of my posts. They are 100% incorrect and lacking integrity, of course. The world is beginning to see it and I hope they are closed down soon. This is all in synchronicity with Yellow Warrior. I have felt as if I was in Warrior mode all day.
The mediating planet today is Saturn
The 5GForce is Red 13 Serpent. Note that it was the antipode yesterday.
The analog is Blue 1 Night; Magnetic Intuition and chanelling.
The Guide Power is itself.
The Antipode is White 1 Worldbridger. Yesterday it was the Hidden Wisdom. What does the swapping of those two positions mean? It’s time to close the file on the Maldek debacle which resulted in so much death and destruction.
ALL BEINGS, ALL SPECIES universe wide are loved and cared for in their uniqueness and diversity. ALL HEARTS must unify in the Heart of Love, of our Creator, of the Christ Consciousness. Every species is different in their evolution and ability to coordinate the heart chakra and balance it with the rest of the body. It is not automatic and it’s no easy task. We must be patient with one another in the process of balancing the heart.
But our DNA is all practically the same. I have the proof. In order to have a peaceful local universe, we need to start to coordinate our DNA which will alter TIME! That’s what my work is about. THE PAST regarding the Maldek debacle and other Universe mistakes can heal when we UNIFY our minds around the fact that our DNA is almost identical universe wide. It’s The Tzolkin. When our hearts beat as one, TIME will unify. I’ve been receiving directives and downloads all day on this. The mistakes of the past the have caused so much pain and conflict can end when we realize FACTS of sameness. Then unique expressions culturally will be no big deal and just add color to all of our lives. No conflict! We are a universal family. That is much more true than the subconscious birth family of the planet we hail from.
I contacted Corey Goode yesterday about using his information about DNA in his video, in my new book, “DNA is Time” and he e-mailed me back pretty quickly, wants to know more and wants to be in touch. That is huge and I will fill you in on what I can as we move forward. He has to guard much of his information. Please watch the videos I post of Corey’s interviews. Sometimes they are hard to understand but resonate with me 100%. I feel like he’s a brother.
I’m putting this up again. Start at 15:45. Corey has not read any of my work and we’ve never met but he’s aware of me and it. I told him about my interpretation of what he said here and he liked it on Twitter and it’s been retweeted a lot. Corey describes exactly what I’m finding mathematically in the Tzolkin, for the last 5 years. He’s right on about everything he points out and what is included in the Dreamspell. I don’t believe he knows of the Dreamspell either so it’s quite a synchronicity.
We are on the same beam big time. Corey is THE TOP trusted direct INTEL recipient from the military generals who work with the Administration. He’s been in the military and also Secret Space Force which is an elite group. He’s spent a lot of time off-world and frankly, I’m not afraid to either, at all. Plus he is a highly valued Intuitive Empath (I.E.) I am an I.E. as well but there is no way I would come to this planet and answer any human or E.T. whatsoever. I only answer to Christ and God IN ME via my higher rational mind or intuition. I’m here to help humanity get through this though. I don’t take orders.
Please watch this. I’m happy to answer any questions.

He just posted this on Twitter. I’ve already asked him how he knows this. Did he see it? Did he dream it? Did an E.T. tell him? Is it in The Law of One? Did the Blue Avians tell him?
Start at minute 15:45 and listen to him. I just hit the jackpot. What he describes is EXACTLY what I see when I’m analyzing the Tzolkin with the Amino Acid DNA molecules. I’ve written down what he said and will QUOTE him in my book. But I’d like to know the Source.

I’m going to lay out an important predictive timeline that impacts everyone according to the flow of multidimensional True Time in the Tzolkin Harmonic Code for the rest of the month.
In addition Mars goes retrograde in Aries tomorrow and is the mediating planet for Red Skywalker and White Worldbridger. It’s amino acids are Q and T! Any aggression or just wars initiated from the left or right for the next few months will backfire.
The Tone of Creation for today is RESONANT which means those of us who are mediums of Spirit and Channel will be humming. The energy is like a boomerang in a cave and we can read it. We don’t absorb it, we read it for the benefit of regular people and other lightworkers.
Today is all about intuition, vision but with intelligence and analysis applied. Intuition takes more than channeling. It’s important to understand the natural forces that are at work in an orderly manner. I’m not indulging in emotion that fogs my rational mind, reacting or absorbing other people’s energy. I just read it like a book. The rational mind and the intuition work hand in hand. From my end, it’s just the Tzolkin Harmonic. There are others.
This predictive Timeline has to do with the upcoming advertised “Siege on the White House” by alleged anarchists,for what it’s worth. Chaos mongering is what it’s worth and making the administration look better when they quell it quickly. They say they’re going to do it on September 17, 2020. Feel free to Google it and see for yourself. The synchronicity is that Trump’s Birth Gateway is the analog support; Blue 3 Hand for that day. That is a major synchronicity which means Trump either supports the Siege and has a hand in it or he is going to benefit from it. Who knows what these politicians motives are except to win elections. I am apolitical. The day lands on Yellow 3 Electric Human. I’m sure they will be an electrified group of humans with some violent opinions and the U.S. military will have to respond.
The purpose of this blog is that we are due for a massive Solar Flare from our sun that will possibly wreak some dissolving havoc our our planet, our minds, and our satellites. This may be what brings the internet down for three days and according to the Tzolkin, I predict it will occur on or about September 22-25, 2020, Red 8 Earth to Yellow 11 Spectral Sun, after the advertised “Siege”. Nancy Pelosi’s birth gateway is Red 8 Earth by the way. That book ends an 11 x 2 = 22 Solar date with a Tone 11 Yellow Sun Mayan date so it’s 11:11 ascension coordinate.
We are currently, today, in HF 41, 4D, Hx37; The Family, The Clan. In 3D that is focus on the subconscious mind programmed for us in utero by our mother’s. It’s past time to have moved beyond our past programming into the conscious adult mind of our own choosing.
There is one more day in this harmonic. On Thursday we enter HF42; 4D Red 9 Solar Serpent
The day after this Thursday is September 11, 2020,White 10 Planetary World Bridger which is also John F. Kennedy’s birth gateway! More synchronicity. Q contends that JFK Jr. is alive to avenge his father’s assassination by the Democratic Party, LBJ and the CIA leading the way in that scheme. His death in the plane crash was allegedly faked. It’s not as though no one has ever faked their death before. I don’t find it unbelievable. There is quite a bit of source material on this which I have not investigated because I can feel that it’s true. Again, feel free to Google it. Who is QAnon? JFK Jr. This one is double synchronicity.The 19th anniversary of 9/11/01 falls on White 11 WB and JFK’s (the President) Mayan Gateway.
The reason JFK was murdered was that he knew about the SSP, the Secret Space Program and the LOC, Lunar Occupation Command on our moon and was going to tell the American People. That was the whole point behind going to the Moon which NASA largely manipulated so on one would see what was actually going on up there. The Deep State, prime motive being profit and expansion of aerospace, tech, big oil and slavery for humans for profit were not going to have any of that. LBJ had connections to big oil and took care of it.
This Saturday, 9/12/20 is Blue 11 Hand. Then Sunday, Yellow 12 Star the Galactic Synchronization begins which no human can control. The Star tribe is mediated by Venus so it’s very possible the Anshar and the Mayans underground are monitoring or helping with the event on the surface to benefit humans. Both of those groups are Venusian, our allies, on our side and always have been.
This day and the next 3 after that are the 5GForce for the gateways for Harmonic Family 33, in the center of the Tzolkin which have no 3D IChing governance. They are kin 129, 130, 131, and 132. Starting THIS SUNDAY, Sept. 13, 2020 the galactic 5th dimension gears up to shift into Disclosure, alignment of the Truth and freedom for surface dwellers. So Sept. 13, 14, 15, and 16 is the 5th dimensional power up.
That takes us to September 17, 2020, Thursday, the planned Siege Day, Yellow 3 Human with Trump’s analog Blue 3 Hand. We’ve got a Grade B Movie of the week to watch from Sept. 17 through the 25th and at some point in there I predict the Solar Flare will start and there will be some kind of friendly E.T. invasion event, Disclosure event or both which will be broadcast on T.V.
September 13, 14, 15, 16-5D GForce power up from HF33.
September 17th, alleged advertised (geez) “Siege on the White House”
That may go on for a week? September 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 (gear up on the Sun for the massive Solar Flare), 23, 24 and…
September 25 is Yellow 11 Sun. The end of the lies, the Deep State, the Human Trafficking, the control of the Media, the secrets kept from us.
DISCLOSURE for the benefit of humanity will begin.
CAN YOU TAKE THE TRUTH, ASIDE FROM A POLITICAL PARTY POSITION?
It’s time for a better life on the surface, free of human slavery, oil, gas, and coal energy and gender disparity.

What most people do is eat or drink alcohol more when they don’t want to deal with organizing their feelings. My “go to” lately are frozen yogurt bars. In the past it was bingey potato chips. Humans are addicted to feelings so avoid them. I believe Huey Lewis sang about being “addicted to love” but he meant the sexy, lusty, emotional kind, not the real kind.
The Moon has entered Sagittarius which the Virgo Sun forms a square to this afternoon during Blue 6 Storm. This could create some tension unless you know how to ignore pettiness and gossip.
Big minds discuss ideas, mediocre minds discuss events and small minds talk about people.
That sizes up our media in a nutshell. I guess that’s why I’m annoying. All I want to talk about is ideas and it stresses people out. My big idea with this blog is there is far more to our DNA and who we are in time and in our families than anyone realizes. I’m scoping out facts and research and then adding my intuition to the mix. One would think that would be valuable to a whole lot of people but most of them are busy reacting to what everyone else does or worse, following what everyone else does.
The Theme is Red 6 Moon, Analog is White 6 Dog, Guide Power is itself, Antipode is Blue 6 Storm and Hidden Wisdom is Yellow 6 Human so Mercury, Pluto opposing and Earth are strong players astrologically from the UNIVERSAL perspective, not the astrological perspective.Red Moon and White Dog are mediated by Mercury so the good part is a Mercury-Uranus trine opens us to creative ideas. The 5GForce is Blue 8 Monkey or galactic creativity, playfulness and illusion. It actually comes up as the Gateway in two days. The galactic tone is all about integrity and doing what you say you’re going to do. That creates harmony and a good example for others.
There is definitely a creative restlessness in the astrology and in The larger Matrix. Channeled well, these aspects encourage us to improve but otherwise might lead to over-indulgence, lack of moderation, or exaggeration. We need to be in touch with our feelings so we can moderate our expectations of ourselves and others.
Methionine is the start codon for the mRNA sequence and tryptophan sometimes functions as a stop codon so this could be a defining day or a type of test to see if we’re taking control of our vibe. Look at the similarity between White Dog and Yellow Human. Yellow Human just has the extra COOH molecule.
The tryptophan molecule with the presence of the hexagon and the pentagon is indicative of the influence of Jupiter and Saturn in holding our DNA together in the past. Now that that’s over I wonder if it will be replaced with something else or rehabilitated?

I just finished watching Season 8 of Game of Thrones on HBO last night. My son had advised I put it off because the online reviews were bad. He’s 21. I ignore reviews and decide for myself. I was not disappointed for the most part and the last two episodes were about as dark as anything could be; The White Walkers War (which was shot too dark) and the destruction of King’s Landing by Dani and her dragon full of innocent people. (Red Dragon Tribe)
The synchronicities with the Tzolkin are numerous throughout the series but in particular, Season 8 is in synchronicity with Cosmic Blue Night which is today’s gateway.
I endure in order to dream. Transcending intuition I seal the input of abundance with the cosmic tone of presence. I am guided by the power of accomplishment.
Kin 143 of the Dreamspell
I believe the period for Game of Thrones is roughly 15th century. But who has more to fear; the people in that century or us in this century? I was caught a bit unawares in March 2020 at the level of panic, visceral fear, irrational behavior and ability of the media TO TELL PEOPLE HOW TO FEEL and then they obeyed! during this plandemic. If you don’t know how you feel because you’re not tuned into your body, you’re easily programmed by the media, your family, and institutions in society. You can find yourself asking someone else, “Should I be Worried?” Don’t ask someone else how you should feel or you’re handing them power over your LIFE. That’s how they hijack your soul. The main purpose of the Tzolkin is to help you remember how you feel in your soul, your DNA, your creator self. The attributes of Night help us do that. We have to go within.
I don’t believe you could tell humans how to feel in the fifteenth century. It seems the human mind hasn’t progressed much since then and the vices I see in Game of Thrones endure today and then some.
The attributes of Blue Night are dreaming, intuition (Brandon Stark), abundance, mysterious, logical, powerful, thoughtful introspective, deep, and strength to endure. What is the three-eyed raven? Clairvoyance, the 3rd eye, an open pineal gland and it changed him. It’s supposed to change you. After I had the covid virus, before anyone even knew what it was in November 2019 I told my patient, “That virus changed me.” No wonder so many are afraid of it. They seriously want everything to stay the same. What planet are you on? That’s not how Earth proceeds. This is an evolutionary, experimental decimal planet and you have to roll with it or the suffering increases.
Much of this is the unconscious mind. The analog today is Yellow 13 Warrior; cosmic intelligence, the antipode is me, Red 13 Skywalker; Cosmic Wakefulness and exploration, and the Hidden Wisdom is White 1 Mirror; reflection, order and endless. Remember how Aya killed the Night King and he splintered like glass? The character Aya Stark is in synchronicity with Yellow Warrior as she was THE master warrior, a female, and small. I believe the writers did that on purpose to make a point.
The dark is also the feminine, the dark of the womb, the empty space inside that is not yet lighted. This series focused heavily on the power of the feminine, the good one and the very bad one. I’d say they were pretty equal as far as characters go.
The issue is what we can’t see because it’s dark. Our eyes need sunlight, especially for our brains to evolve and the pineal gland to be open. That is where we find ourselves now. We need to see clearly to move forward and the dark night can be full of abundant wisdom if we look back on it after the sunrise.

We know all about solar storms these days. There have been very, very strong ones from our Sun that have been affecting everything and everybody on earth in the last few months or so. Nothing on the sun is normal anymore and Earth is intimately tied to it since the Earth was born out of the Sun. Think of the Sun as our father and the Dark of space within which ALL resides as our mother. They are local universe parents.
In addition, The Schumann resonance has been off the charts. The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth’s electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere. They are known to affect the human body.
The cause of all of this is it’s time for earth to evolve forward, to take an evolutionary jump and activate our light body at a steady pace and join the universal stream. This is nothing new. Earth, viruses, bacteria, all plant life and rocks, animals, you name it have been evolving for GOOD PURPOSE now for billions of years. Humans are supposed to be part of the natural order and accept it. It’s not acceptable for Earth and humans to become artificial intelligence which has wreaked havoc in other parts of our universe. It’s not going to happen here. It’s only when our eyes and hearts close that we want to control others and have everything for themselves or have it our way. That’s done too.
The 5GForce is Red 5 Dragon of Radiant Blood Mother and Birth. It’s heavy energy that is bringing the power of feminine back to earth.
The body uses tryptophan to help make niacin, melatonin, and serotonin. Serotonin is thought to produce healthy sleep and a stable mood. In order for tryptophan in the diet to be changed into niacin, the body needs to have enough iron.

“The galaxy and galactic things figure prominently in the Mayan Tzolkonics. The Milky Way galaxy is the context within which all Life and thus all DNA lives in it’s myriad forms but that’s just the beginning”
The Universal context within which all Life exists is immense and beyond our human imagination but I won’t let that stop me. Today we are on White 8 Galactic Mirror so it is now time to take a look at much of what is beyond human knowledge that is not shared by our larger culture. The Urantia Book is one such thing and I’ll do my best to nutshell this particular piece.
Our Milky Way Galaxy is the central nucleus of our Superuniverse Orvonton. It’s the seventh superuniverse. Orvonton is south of the Milky Way Galaxy and Earth and it are in the southeast sector of Orvonton on the outside edge. We’re edgy, maybe even leading edge. Our local neighborhood universe on the southeast edge or Orvonton is Nebadon. The local system in Nebadon in which we reside is Satania, I suppose named for the once highly regarded and ever trusted angel of light, Satan. Please note that now he is regarded as the epitome of dark. Even in the Universe, people aren’t too big to fail.
That all changed and there are multiple stories of the Great War in Heaven in every culture. There is one in the Urantia Book and it’s pretty awful. I’m not going into that now. We’re sort of going through it ON EARTH right now and are at the tail end of what the benevolent ancestors watching over us are going to allow. Humanity is held like a babe in it’s mother’s arms. We are very guarded and cared for despite how other humans feel about each other. The Universe does not regard us lowly. We are held in high regard and our evolution means EVERYTHING to our watchers.
The Master Universe encompasses all of material creation. It includes the central universe of Havona (Heaven), the seven superuniverses and the four uninhabited outer space levels which revolve alternately clockwise and counterclockwise around Havona. In outer space millions of new galaxies are in the process of formation. The first outer space level is about 500,000 light years beyond the periphery of the Grand Universe.
That’s just a nutshell of the context of our galaxy. In the order of things, The Tzolkin, The Network Grid, galactic energy is about modeling integrity and harmonizing. White Mirror reflects Order and Endlessness which is why I brought the Urantia Book into the mix today. I’ve read the whole thing over a thirty year period and pick it up often and read it again.
If you’re interested in the details of the Lucifer rebellion it’s on pages 601-620. If you don’t have the book it’s also online. Lucifer and Satan are apostate princes and I do believe their mischief is at it’s end now, as of a couple days ago. It says they fought against the Dragon which is likely synonymous with the Red Dragon Tribe, The Dragon Family of China and The Draco E.T. who were just recently routed from the planet by the Pleiadians. The Tzolkin teaches all of that history and the DNA is all in there. Earth is a hodge-podge, a pluralistic fertile pool if you will and now we’re trying to harmonize all of it.
Presently there is no universal basis for what qualifies the start of a new year. Every culture has its own set of parameters for determining it. The Chinese celebrate theirs in either late January or early February according their lunar calendar. The ancient Egyptians linked the appearance of the star Sirius and the annual flooding of the Nile river to signal the start of their new year. (Lions Gate 8/8/20) The many cultures of India celebrate the new year on various dates during the month of April. Europe’s Nordic cultures keyed it to the Winter solstice. The Celtic, Samhain, now vulgarized as Halloween, is celebrated by present day neo pagans, Wiccans and Druids as the start of their new year.
Contrast that line of reasoning with the fact that the new year of non-western cultures is related to some seasonal and/or astronomical aspect. The foregoing is why I refer to the Gregorian calendar as an urban calendar, for it reflects the whims of the city lords more than anything else.
The most common denominator for the start of the new year in most other calendar systems is the start of the growing season or end of the harvest season. In some cases, either of the solstices or equinoxes are recognized as the start of the year. The start of the new year for cultures other than the Euro-western is related to the agricultural, seasonal, and astronomical particulars of each region.
The start of the new year cycle can be viewed as universal for those in northern hemisphere when reckoned from the winter solstice, and as defined by the life cycle changes that accompanies the attendant atmospheric conditions (rain, dryness, snow, etc) as the sun ascends and descends. The same would apply to those of the southern hemisphere, except that their new year would start with what we in the north refer to as the summer or June solstice. I prefer to designate the solstices according to the month they take place within rather than say summer or winter, because the seasons are reversed depending on which hemisphere you happen to live in.
The process of cooling and warming is minimized in most parts of the tropical regions. The most defining aspect of seasonal variation in the tropics is dry and rainy seasons. Nonetheless it is the Sun’s to and fro movement, and its attendant affect on atmospheric conditions that drives precipitation patterns. Therefore we can associate the start of the new year with the solstice that marks the start of a rising Sun for each hemisphere, since it is the rising solstice Sun that initiates the life cycle for each hemisphere.
The solstices do indeed provide us with fixed starting points for each hemisphere’s respective new year as it relates to the life cycle, but might there be a truly universal new year that applies to the entire planet as a whole regardless of local particulars?
The Arguellen Universal Calendar Proposal
Jose Arguelles proposed the universal adoption of what he calls the 13 Moon Calendar. Thirteen “moons”, or months of 28 days, plus one day would give a clean, orderly and easy to use civil calendar. (13×28 = 364 +1 = 365) I won’t go into all the reasons on why a uniform calendar is far better than the Gregorian hodge-podge we have now. But if you think about it some of the reasons should become clear. He was not the first to propose a new and improved universal calendar.
His calendar proposal is based on the Mayan Tun Uc calendar which also measures 13 months of 28 days plus one day. Arguelles anchored the start of his 13 Moon calendar to July 26th. But why July 26th? What is so special about that date? The followingquote from his website gives us his rationale.
“For many ancient peoples, including the Dogon and Egyptians of Africa and the Maya of Central America, the great star Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, was the galactic marker. The heliacal rising of Sirius – July 26 – commenced the Egyptian year”. ~ Jose Arguelles
The problem with his rational is that its mostly inaccurate. Sirius did loom large in Dogon and Egyptian cosmology, but I have yet to come across any information indicating that it had any sort of calendrical function among the Maya.
Additionally, the Dogon did not use the star Sirius as a calendrical marker. And the start of the Egyptian new year is July 19th not the 26th and the helical rise of Sirius is also around the same time–July 19-20.
Lastly, we did not understand the concept of a galaxy until the 1920’s when we discovered, thanks to telescopes, that we inhabit one of billions of galaxies. The Arguellen account does not give us any reason whatsoever to say that July 26th is the start of some universally valid new year, even though he insists it is.
There are two testable and key parts to his universal year cycle proposal. One is that it starts on July 26th and the other is that each of its 13 months are characterized by a set of qualities in the same way that each day of the Tzolkin’s 13 day tone cycle has it particular qualities.
In other words the 13 day tone cycle is a fractal of the 13 month year cycle, as proposed by Arguelles. The first month of the 13 month year cycle carries the same qualities as the first tone of the 13 day tone cycle and so on. But this article will focus solely on the question of universal new year and its probable start date, if one exists.
So what else can be said about July 26th?
The 365 day civil calendar of ancient Mesoamerica was known as the Haab among the Maya and as the Xiuhpohualli among the Aztecs. The ancient Mesoamericans did not anchor their civil calendar to any part of the year in the way the Gregorian calendar does by adding a leap day every 4 years. This means that the start of Mesoamerica’s civil calendar year drifted by one day every 4 years.
At the time of the Spanish invasion, the first day of Mayan Haab calendar, “0 Pop”, coincided with July 26th, and hence forth the Mayan Haab was fixed to July 26th for unclear reasons. Spanish imposition is most likely the reason for the Haab’s fixation to July 26th.
July 26th is also significant for one other reason, for it is the day that the Sun is at the zenith over two of Mesoamerica’s most important pyramid sites. Teotihuacan marked the solar zenith passage date for the Toltecs and Edzna marked the July 26th solar zenith passage for the Yucatec Maya.
But there is still nothing universal about a Spanish imposition, nor are solar zenith passage dates, for they will vary according to latitude within the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.[fig. 1]
Finding the Center of Space and Time
August 13th is most famous for being the alternative start date for the beginning of the Maya Long Count Cycle. There is a 2 day discrepancy between when the Long Count may have actually started. The account with the most backing says its August 11th, 3114 BCE, and that date gives us the end date of December 21st, 2012. August 13th gives us the end date of December 23rd.
The Zapotec-Shearer-Arguellen Tzolkin may be able to shed some light on that subject, but that investigation will be for another time. And after this analysis I am inclined to think that August 13th may carry more weight than August 11th. The other principle reason that August 13th is well known among Maya scholars is due to the unique timing phenomena that occurs on August 13th, at the latitude of 14.8 north. I will have to forego the extremely fascinating history behind the discovery of August 13th at the latitude of 14.8 N for this article, but I will relate what is most salient to my purpose here.
The latitude of 14.8 north has the distinction of being the place where the sun’s two zenith passage dates combine to equate interval periods of 260 days and 105 days (105 + 260 = 365). Two hundred and sixty days is the number of days in the Tzolkin cycle calendar, or the most revered body of knowledge in all of ancient Mesoamerica.
Zenith passage dates can only occur between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.[fig.1] As the Earth tilts on its axis, we see the Sun rise and fall in the sky over the course of the year. The tropics, or the lines of latitude just mentioned, mark the Sun’s northernmost and southernmost points of inclination and declination. The tropic of Cancer is located 23.5 degrees north of the equator, and it marks the day the Sun is directly overhead on the June solstice. The tropic of Capricorn is located 23.5 degrees south of the equator, and it marks the day the Sun is directly overhead on the December solstice.
It has been suggested by many scholars that the 260 day Tzolkin and the 365 day civil calendar were developed at the ancient ceremonial site of Izapa. Izapa is one of two major ancient Mesoamerican ceremonial centers that are located at the latitude of 14.8. The other site is Copan which is found on the border between Honduras and Guatemala. [fig.2] Izapa is located near the Mexican-Guatemalan border.
John Major Jenkins and a few others believe that the Long Count Cycle was calibrated at Izapa, and they are probably right about that, but from my vantage point I believe that neither the Tzolkin cycle nor the 365 day calendar were discovered or formulated there.
I won’t get into my version now, but I will say that I believe that the Ancient Mesoamericans (AMA) sought out the place where the two primary measures of time, the Tzolkin and solar cycles met in perfect harmony.
Such a place would be nothing less than the place where the “Heart of Earth” meets the “Heart of Heaven” within their worldview. The Heart of Earth being the 365 pulses (beats) that we experience as a day-night cycle, and the Heart of Heaven being the 260 pulses of the Tzolkin cycle. In other words, the Tzolkin was regarded as the primary or cosmic timing standard. The implication is that the solar cycle is a local timing standard, particular only to our unique place in time and space, but nonetheless supremely relevant to why our solar system harbors life.
In order to show what is meant by the foregoing, let’s begin with the Sun at the December solstice. On the Sun’s northward journey it crosses the zenith over Izapa on April 30th.
The Sun continues climbing until it stops its northward journey on the June solstice, or the day the sun is directly over the tropic of Cancer, and once again begins its southward journey toward the winter solstice. On its southward journey it will again be directly over Izapa on August 13th for its second zenith passage.
Please note that our warming season from winter to summer solstice corresponds to when the earth’s northern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun and the opposite is true in the winter time.
April 30th to August 12th equals 105 days and from August 13th to April 29th there are 260 days. (260+105=365) The two solar zenith passages are separated by 105 days in the former interval, and by 260 days in the latter.
The interval from August 13th to April 29th places the December solstice smack dab in the middle at 130 days or one half of a Tzolkin Cycle.
Furthermore, there are 52 days from the summer solstice to August 12th, and we well know that the number 52 was highly revered by the AMA for its meaning within their understanding of time.
August 13th would be the equivalent of our January 1st and August 12 would be the same as December 31st.
But why August instead of April?
August 13th came to be known among the AMA as “the day the world was born” and “as the place where time began“. But why did they pick the August zenith passage date over the April zenith passage to anchor the “day the world was born”, and mark the start of the new year and the Long Count cycle?
The one thing that comes to mind is that they recognized the December solstice as the start of the solstice to solstice year cycle, and so that would make the August zenith passage the second or completing zenith passage date, hence completing the centering aspect of the Sun’s passage and the next passage date is a full 260 days away with the winter solstice perfectly balanced between the 2 zenith passage dates.
We must remember that one of the AMA’s most important cosmological quests was worldcentering, therefore they would value counting the year cycle from center point to center point, rather than from extreme point (summer solstice) to extreme point (winter solstice) so to speak. Following this line of reasoning, I looked to the night sky to see if it could shed some light on this subject.
I set my astronomy software to 3114 BCE to see if the night or day sky at the zenith time over Izapa might reveal something telling about why else the August 13th zenith date might have been favored over April 30th. I discovered that the Milky Way straddles the north-south meridian at midnight in such a way as to form a perfect cross just 20 degrees from the zenith.The four quarters of the world are made manifest by such an event, and the observer is at the very center of it all. On April 30, the Milky Way is not perpendicular to the zenith meridian until the dawn.
The actuality of the evening’s most revered object, the Milky Way, forming a cross with the north-south meridian at the zenith and at midnight, on the same day that the day-time’s most revered object, the Sun, is at the zenith only reinforces the idea of August 13th as the center of space and time in the most literal of terms.
There is one other consideration, and that is the agricultural season. The first corn crop is sown to coincide with the start of the rainy season around the end of April-start of May – the time of the first zenith passage. The first harvest happens right around the middle of August or near the second zenith passage. We know that harvest time is often a factor for pin pointing a year cycle start date among other cultures, but this aspect, unlike the first two, is not a universal condition, and we are looking for universal parameters.
August 13th: Ancient Mesoamerica’s Universal New Year
It seems that August 13th was regarded as the start of a universal new year among all major pyramid building cultures of Mesoamerica. It has been found that at least one major aspect of almost every major ceremonial center has an axis or focal point of some sort aligned with the sunset of August 13th. In other words it was widely acknowledged that Izapa was situated at the “Heart of Earth” and that the work done at Izapa was supremely important to the foundation of Mesoamerican cosmology.
In acknowledgement of Izapa and August 13t, other ceremonial centers oriented at least one major structure toward the sunset of August 13th. In other words Izapa represented nothing less than the place where the tangible fulcrum of earthly time, and the intangible fulcrum of cosmic time met in perfect harmony.
Three hundred and sixty-five days is the measure of earthly time and 260 days is the measure of cosmic time. Heart of Earth and Heart of Sky are two very important metaphors in Mesoamerican cosmology, for they too, like so many other cultures, recognized that everything emerges from some infinitesimal center place.
The perceptible Heart of Sky is the zenith, and also from Izapa they discovered the intangible, but supreme center of our local universe, or the heart of our Galaxy.
So it was that they developed the Long Count to calibrate when Father Sun would be reborn from the Cosmic Mother. (Jenkins Maya Cosmogenesis). By doing so they achieved the holy grail of Mesoamerica’s other great quest known as Worldrenewing.
Before concluding I want to go back to July 26th. As mentioned earlier the zenith of July 26th was marked by the ceremonial centers of Edzna in the Yucatec Maya lands, and at Teotihhuacan – land of the multi-culturally composed Toltecs.
Edzna was the first major ceremonial center of the Yucatec Maya and Teotihuacan was the major ceremonial center for the highland Toltecs. The pre-imminent Maya scholar Vincent Malmstrom thinks that the northern periphery of grand Mesoamerican culture, as marked by Edzna and Teotihuacan, switched the official start of the new year from August 13th to July 26th.
According to Malmstrom, a calendar reform of sorts took place in the year 48 CE, in which July 26th became the new “new year” start date for the Yucatec region and Teotihuacan, since both centers were built where the sun is at the zenith on July 26th.
We don’t know exactly what prompted this change, but Malmstrom thinks it had to do with having a “locally relevant new year”. It may have been a political tactic to establish Edzna as the new power center of an emerging civilization.
Earlier I mentioned that the Maya civil calendar, the Haab had been fixed to start on July 26th at the time of the Spanish invasion. Thus the prominence of July 26th in the historical record was doubly reinforced, since the roving start date of the civil calendar, and the July 26th solar-zenithal passage new year are two distinct ways of measuring the year cycle.
Recently I met a Maya man from Guatemala, and he did confirm that July 26th is still recognized as the first day of the new year, and this had nothing to do with the Arguellen proposition to create a new universal calendar with July 26th as its start date. Arguelles it seems borrowed the start date for his universal calendar proposal without giving full disclosure as to why he had chosen that date.
August 13th has a couple of strong reasons as to why it’s a prime candidate for a universally valid start of the year. July 26th is another serious choice because of its strong presence in the historical record. However, there are problems with the July 26th date because we have yet to discover any universally valid properties to that day.
Whatever the case, the month of August looms large in the historical record as it relates to the story of 2012 and Mesoamerican history. The following list of events only seems to affirm the significance of the time period called August:
Either August 11th or 13th is the start date of the Long Count Cycle.
Hernán Cortés began his march on the Aztec capital on August 16th, 1519.
The Aztec Empire fell on August 13th, 1921.
The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki happened on August 6th and 9th respectively.
Tony Shearer fulfilled the prophecy of the 13 Heavens and 9 Hells prophecy cycle by calculating its end date on August 16th-17th, 1987. The fact that Arguelles was able to successfully convoke a global gathering on those two dates (Harmonic Convergence) lends even more weight to mid-August as some sort of peak moment in the solar cycle. Harmonic Convergence was a major event in the history of humankind, for it was the world’s first global ritual event and it took place before the internet was publicly available.
Those of you familiar with my article on Anticipating Personal and Collective Shifts in relation to MAC Time Science, should consider mid-August 13 as a cycle juncture window. A cycle juncture window is a period of time before and after a cycle ending zero date or August 12th in this case. Shift-type events are most likely to happen during a cycle juncture window; review the article in question for more details.
