Precious water, the source of life, capable of shape shifting in so many ways – and returning now as the focus of this Muluk trecena that is ushering us through the end of August and into early September. This podcast to accompany the Muluk trecena in the Maya Count of Days Horoscope blog for Aug. 25-Sept. 6, 2021 highlights the significance of this trecena as we begin our journey through the final 52-day period that will complete the current 260 day cycle.
As this is our third journey through this period while the pandemic has been “full on”, the changes that have taken place from one Muluk trecena to the next are highlighted, to provide some perspective on how things have evolved. The beginning of this trecena last December, for example, brought the start of the global Covid-19 vaccination programs. The very first day of this trecena at that time also brought “Safe Harbor” day in the U.S. with regard to the 2020 presidential election.
Particularly noteworthy at this time are the steps now being taken to counter the attacks against democracy that were starting to emerge one cycle ago, and to hold people responsible. Events such as “March On” are also taking place during this period in defence of Voting Rights.
Particularly attention-getting is the fact that Hurricane Ida began barrelling towards New Orleans shortly after this trecena began, kicking into action energies that have direct correlation with those that brought in Hurricane Katrina in 2005. A discussion of this begins at the 36 min. point.
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit on 11 Muluk (Water) in the Kawak (Storm) trecena, and what is coming up this time is 11 Kawak (Storm) in the Muluk (Water) trecena. The energies of both Muluk and Kawak are intensely water-related and interconnected, so this is a significant parallel.
Mention is also made of the release, 8 cycles ago, of the final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commisssion in Canada, pertaining to abuses associated with residential schools, and a story is included (starting at about 45:25) relating to a Kwakwaka’wakw copper-breaking ceremony, performed by master artist Beau Dick, 4 cycles prior to that, to get people thinking and to motivate action.
