The Mayan Sign and Day of The Serpent
Today is the first day of the 13-day Serpent Trecena. So, in the spirit of today, we are sharing one of Fatih’s videos on the Mayan Sign: Serpent.
The Serpent Trecena
Today – 26 August 2020 = 1 Serpent / Chicchan / Kan
This particular day is described as:
There are three day signs which relate to the archetype of Feathered Serpent. One of them is Iq’, which is Feathered Serpent as the wind god, the primal creator spirit who appears in the first few pages of the Pop Wuj. The day sign Aj is the K’iche’ equivalent of the Aztec Acatl (Reed), and relates to the historical Toltec spiritual teacher called Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl.
Kan (Yucatec: Chicchan) simply means “snake” in K’iche’ and symbolizes Feathered Serpent as a manifestation of the energy within the body which is called koyopa.
Koyopa literally means “lightning.” If you are speaking to a campesino with no interest in costumbre (the ancient ways), he is probably referring to actual lightning in the sky. But if you are speaking to a daykeeper, he’s probably talking about the “inner lightning.”
This inner lightning is perceived as a serpent. Bolts of lightning are “serpents in the sky.” This inner lightning or koyopa is a feminine power. My friend Dona Maria told me that when she was a young girl her elders (people born near the beginning of the 20th century) always told her that girls ought not to stare at the lightning, because the affinity between women and lightning was so intense that overly sensitive individuals could easily fall out of balance.
The koyopa is also a messenger. It sends us signals by causing a trembling in one of the 13 major joints in the body. Often, this trembling comes to daykeepers as they perform the divination ritual, and it means that a special message is coming to them from the ancient gods.
The Mayan Sign: Serpent
Serpent is the fifth day sign in the Mayan zodiac. It is also known by the name Chicchan or Kan.
If your main Mayan sign is Serpent, or you have it somewhere in your Tree of Life, the following video will be particularly interesting for you.
If you are the Serpent sign, you have a strong body and mind, charisma, and intense eyes. Some people even say that the Mayan people are scared of the snake people, and it’s probably because of this intense energy that you have.
The Mayans call it koyopa. But in the Indian tradition, we call it the kundalini. They are more or less the same thing – energy that sits at the base of your chakra system on the Muladhara chakra.
This energy awakens in a Serpent person. It is activated and you can feel the energy strongly.
Understanding the force of this energy
If you’re a Serpent sign, going into Kundalini will help you understand this force of energy much better.
Go into Kundalini, like asanas and breathing techniques. And move this energy up in a balanced way.
Of course, you need to clean your body, clean your system, take care of your nadis… there is a whole science out there.
One of the books I’d really recommend reading is called Kundalini Tantra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati. Find the book and read the first part for sure. It will help you understand what this force is all about.
