10 Vulture (Warrior, Owl, Turkey) [Full Moon 00:58 GMT/UTC; 08:58 Hong Kong]

Evening Flight, by Vladimir Kush, one of our favourite artists

Today a profound sense of your personal truth can emerge in your awareness, a truth that is balanced.

Alternatively, a position that you have decided upon recently can be seen more fully due to the revealed contrast of feelings, perception or needs that you hold in your psyche.

When to hold, when to let go?

Be still, then...

Today you will see what you need to grasp and hold onto.

Coherent truth manifests. This is an expression of your essence; this is your strength.

Strength and Power

Today is a day of strength. Today is a day to acknowledge the appearance of true strength.

Hold your ground and realize your power, the power that is natural and divine and in accord with all that is good.

Be still, be the peace…

Laurence, being the peace. Photo thanks to André Eichman

9 Eagle

© Robert Postma/Design Pics/Getty Images. Image from here

Today, 9 Eagle, is a day of penetrating clarity of thought as we confront startling truths. 9 Eagle is a day of power and vision, yet it also offers the compassion that comes from a profound spiritual truth – the truth that the world is enchanting; that from the spirit’s point of view, this is a theatre.

The illusion of the world is permanence, the game is full of deceptions – but we take part in those deceptions. Why? Because the world is an enchantment, and we are waking up slowly to the nature of the virtuality of reality.

9 Eagle is about flying above the polarities that lie below, whilst integrating heart and mind. Compassionate yet discerning thought yields the rewards today, as you feel fully awake in the realm between Heaven and Earth.

Time cycles reveal themselves on 9 Days. In the 2012 era, which is where we are, there is an opportunity to understand time on a whole new level. You may well gain some inspiration in this area today.

Today, pay attention to any image that catches your imagination as it can serve as a portal.

Bonus Message from Laurence about Time Cycles
The number of days in one spin of the Tzolkin – the 260-day Mayan Sacred Calendar year – is a fractal of 26,000 tun. One tun is 360 days; 26,000 tun  (which equates to 25,625 of our civil years) is one ‘galactic spin’, or one full Precessional Cycle (Precession of the Equinoxes).

More simply, the 260-day cycle is the fractal constant found in all the interlocking orbits between Earth and the planets, and represents the Earth’s relationship with the galaxy.

Outside view of precession, by Tauʻolunga on Wikipedia. Image from here

 The 260-day calendar has resonance with individual human gestation (266 days on average), while the 26,000 tun of the galactic cycle measures the development of the whole human species in ways we are not yet sure of, but which probably mark the duration of a ‘mutation’ of the species – a birth of new consciousness.

At the very least, we are in the midst of a change bigger than the industrial revolution. Do not go to sleep. Perceive with your intuitive visionary capability the enormity of the drama we are playing in right now.

By following the 260-day calendar, we move into resonance with Galactic Consciousness and with issues relating to the whole species. Our relationship with time and space changes.

8 Jaguar

The World of Crow, by LjL

Commit to your shamanic instincts today as an integral part of navigating the world we live in. It is all too easy to get swept along with the technological perspective on life and to devalue the foundation of material existence (the body) as product of the natural world.

Stay alert and call upon Earth Magic, for you are a warrior protector of this vital, beautiful and precious planet and we need you in your power.

'We need you in your power'

Navigating reality requires the ability to face and accept the Shadow — both within yourself and within your friends, your family, your lover and the mother of all scary shadows of the World we live in — without getting lost in the admittedly undeniable darkness and seeing it as all there is.

The Light is stronger and the shaman within you knows this instinctively.

The Galactic Awakening of the 2012 era requires this level of commitment from an increasing number of us.

What we need is humour and acceptance, as well as openness of mind and a radical playful spirit in a world of relative truth, dark powerful agendas and social confusion. The Dark Game is a smaller context than the Light of Creation, which infuses our everyday lives.

Commit to playing in the game of duality whilst connecting to the unity through your body intelligence. Get out into nature if you can.

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 8 Jaguar, first posted on 9 March 2016, during the Piscean Eclipse, but still relevant today]

The Eclipse has begun and the fog-shroud of energy is tangible and visible. A dissolute feeling is present. I am off to the hills for the eclipse...

I walked to my favourite spot and, as usual, just before the eclipse the energy was quite disorientating, perhaps especially with this one as I found it hard to evoke structurally. However, I got the point of connection almost exactly at the pinnacle of the eclipse and new moon (3 minutes or so before). The clouds opened and a shaft of sunlight burst through the fog. I then felt a sense of calm, and after 5 minutes I lay down and fell asleep, for a few minutes only.

I had a dream, again very simple, which explained that it does not matter what people worship or call their god – they are all just symbols or representations of the ultimate divinity.

Nothing earth-shattering in itself, but I think it shows how the eclipse is manifesting. The general sense was that the eclipse was about the totality of life. My mind was trying to grasp onto things and seek inspirations, as it does, but there was nothing to hold onto in a smaller sense – it was about the essence and the conduit we use to connect to an enormity that is too large to grasp, yet ever present.

I stand by my work that suggests we as a species are being challenged to re-vision the meta-myth of society and I would add that is through our own intimate inquiry.

Application and action might best be achieved by persevering and mastering a specific area – your niche area of interest or vocation – whilst recognizing that a more expansive heritage is also available for you to draw upon.

Detach from the precepts, foundational conditioning, assumptions, commandments and ‘givens’ that you may have learnt, and look to connect to a much larger potential. Draw upon divinity to show you a new way forward in your work.

One step at a time... 

There is a collective theme of loss of faith* and so we need to re-establish a faith that does not rely upon our old gods, old authorities or old heroes (obviously this encompasses all of the mainstream authority figures).

In your creative endeavours, this will open the door to innovation and will enable you to draw upon inspiration from a paradigm outside your niche interest in order to re-vision your approach.

I am talking in a general sense of course, but the specific effect for you will depend upon the transits to your own astrological chart.

* This was particularly relevant in March 2016, with Jupiter in a close opposite to Chiron, but still valid today.

Note from Carey: Laurence wrote many articles about the timeline choice we are facing, much of which he posted on his Mystic Cyber Crow blogsite, up to and including a matter of weeks before his passing. Mystic Cyber Crow was the blogsite perhaps particularly closest to Laurence’s heart, where he could write about and share much of his inspiration, theories, musings and insights. Many articles are ‘unedited’, in the sense that Laurence wrote in a stream of consciousness as soon as he was inspired or impelled to put his incredible thinking and feeling down in words.

This was his mission, to share his wisdom, experience, knowledge, and profound understanding of life.

7 Reed (Skywalker)

Mayan Daykeeper glyphs in the Ouroborus of Time-Space, by LjL

On 7 Days, the energy of the timewave that resonates with Heaven and Earth is revealed. Day 7 has a magical resonant feeling; there is an awareness of ‘as above, so below’, or a sense of the timeless moment being present in the day through the filter of the glyph.


Glyphs by LjL for Day 7 and for Reed (Skywalker).
To view the full set of glyphs, please visit our 'Your Mayan Daykeeper' page and scroll down to the end.

The inherent ethic of creation is present on Day 7 in all timewaves. Seven is the resonance with wholeness, not in absolute detail or high sophistication, but it does reveal the general soft-focus view of the whole.

The Deer Timewave reveals its energy today as being resonant with the Observer Mind.

You can get a good detached view of your whole life today, whilst still operating and enjoying the mundane or ‘normal’ level of reality. A good day to move into resonance with a higher perspective of reality, whilst functioning in an everyday kind of way.

Your actions can feel in accord with the divine will.

6 Good Road (Human, Grass)

Swirls in the stream, Ubud, Bali, 2017

Open yourself to the flow. Affluence is being in the flow, regardless of your bank balance; just be open enough to allow the flow.

The road ahead opens up through people. Stay open to people and you are living abundantly – simple, but sometimes challenging.

A day of understated harmony and rhythm on the Mayan Galactic frequency. Beneath the chaos of the world frequency is the Tzolkin frequency and, on that level, today is a day of harmony.

Flowing in a direction, yet going with the swirls.

Surrender to the stream.

5 Monkey

Design by Carey

The Deer Timewave is about navigating the ever-changing emergent world. This consciousness is the recognition of the unpredictable nature of life’s exact unfoldment.

Monkey is the spirit who is at home with the truth of the Trickster, whose domain is in the details and lateral potentials. Monkey is at home here because Monkey is the Creative Trickster.

Come back to that part within you that knows life really is a game. Radiating out from the centre of your being is your own free will, which is a monkey unto itself.

Today, recognize the truth that outcomes may not be exactly what we expect (notably in regards to specific timing of manifestations). This will keep us alert and awake. The universe is always generating randomness within the context of its overall direction.

Composite image by Carey, using masks and Milky Way from Google

Today is also a good day to be conscious of the many faces that life shows us, including the different sub-personalities through which we express ourselves, each being a slightly different mask for a different theatre. Today, recognize the truth of role play.

All masks veil and express the unified consciousness. Empower yourself by accepting that the Trickster Monkey is an essential part of creation.

 [Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 5 Monkey:]
Throughout human history, we have continued to evolve despite the dark agendas – and the truth is that the controlling forces do create structure.

As we evolve, the prevailing structure becomes limited and we have to break through to another level and/or to an expanded structure, which means the controllers then have to regroup.

The expansion of consciousness and cultural evolution increases the diversity of polarity and the stakes get raised on each level.

In this 2012 era, the stakes are truly raised. Be conscious of the game of life and of your role in it.

4 Dog

Interconnected Fields of Consciousness, flipchart by LjL

The foundation for the elastic strength of the Deer Timewave starts with emotional security. Feel the emotional boundaries you operate within.

We all have our family, including ancestral, friends and work colleagues.

Today, recognize the feeling of belonging that you enjoy through the people you find yourself with. You do belong – you just need to recognize how and where.
Composite by Carey

This day is a day to truly feel into your emotional needs – all of them – as a way of recognizing that your foundation is your emotional body. Feeling and accepting the emotional body is not the same as reacting to and living according to the dictates of the emotional kaleidoscope.

Feel it all as the juice within you; hold onto the impulses.

A good day to recognize and consciously set and embrace your own emotional limits.

3 Water (Moon)

Today, 3 Water, is Laurence's Mayan birthday.
He now walks the Plasmic Hills and swims in the Cosmic Ocean,
but his spirit, his soul, his wisdom, his laughter and his love live on.

Transmissions and emanations from the soul.

Energy is generated on Day 3 of every timewave. Today, a general sense of charged emotional energy, anticipation, agitation, anxiety or excitement without a definite, discernible reason is present. Hold it lightly; this is the engine of your soul revving up and warming up.

The Wave: Homage to Hokusai, by Carey

Alternatively, today feel the tides of energy as one thing gradually flows into another. See the day as a wave form, or as wave forms, cresting and falling, then rising again. Follow the rhythms you feel from within. 

To stay in the flow, utilize the power of Water and offer yourself to Life.

Be ready to give to the moment and to share.

Allow deeper feeling to surface and you will find that you can quite naturally communicate from the soul, cleansing hidden emotions whilst giving permission to others to do the same.

Allow different areas of concern or interest to merge and overlap. Stay in the flow and you will find that staccato or oscillating thoughts, fuelled by tension and adrenaline, will dissolve into natural movement. A day of confluence.

Offer gratitude to Life and release tension with simple evocations of acceptance. Feel a connectivity that is fluid yet strong.

Adaptation is spiritual power.

2 Rabbit (Star)

Another photo by our talented friend André Eichman

The diversity of all that attracts us can overwhelm us with promise, opportunity, beauty, brilliance, splendour and bliss – it is all too much if we try to grasp.

All that glitters is not gold, and yet the sparkle of life is a reflection of divinity and is here for us to enjoy and celebrate.

Fortuna, by Jean Francois Armand Felix Bernard (1829–1894)

Today you can feel the promise, the pull and the attraction of opposing forms and appearances. You may hear a desperate call within you to attend to one thing and neglect another.

On 2 Days, we can feel the duality inherent in our life. The multiplicity of appealing entertainment and urgent needs is actually a reminder of how extraordinarily abundant and omnidirectional life truly is.

Focus primarily on the vortex within the centre of it all – this is the white hole that gives birth to the abundance of all that is in your life.

Today, enjoy some diversity without getting sucked into one reality tunnel.

1 Deer (Hand, Grasp)

Monarch of the Glen, Glencoe, by Angie Latham of Celtic Mystery
With heartfelt thanks to Angie for her kind permission to use this beautiful image

After Jaguar Timewave comes the timewave of Deer (also known as Hand, or Grasp; Manik), starting today.

In the next 13 days, the Mayan Sacred Calendar guides you in the art of control. This timewave offers us the opportunity to learn how to respond appropriately to life; to know when to hold on and when to let go.

Deer or Hand is elusive and graceful, yet deceptively strong. So begins 13 days to awaken your spiritual power and nobility.

The lesson of Deer is how to follow the ebb and flow of energies, which requires an ability to have the correct degree and balance of tension and relaxation – knowing when to hold on and when to let go. Deer are natural Daykeepers for they can respond easily and effortlessly to the rhythmic change of energies.

The Diversity of Organic Tools

Deer utilizes the diversity of organic tools at hand. Deer is fleeting and yet makes itself known; Deer knows stillness and silence, yet has great speed and vitality.

Navigate the full range of your capabilities and talents, and recognize both your masculine and your feminine traits during this timewave.

Hold, then release; hold the moment delicately and with some alertness.

13 Skull

Toroid Planets, by Carey

Today you find your detachment. That which interests you and that which you own will not possess you.

Today allows for the strength of mind to cut through fears by detaching from lower-level dramas and willing yourself to transcend to a freer realm of activity.

13 is the master number of spiralling movement and growth; it is in resonance with the Lunar Cycle and is a Fibonacci number. 13 is the movement into mystery, as we
temporarily leave the orderly and rational behind. Skull is the power to cut free and start again.

Image from Google

Today, you have the opportunity to cut through illusion, to free the self from unnecessary attachments. The teaching of today is to recognize the aspect of the self that is free from obligation and which is uncompromising.

Although we all have to make adjustments and allowances to be part of the world, there is a line that is drawn which the world cannot cross. Your line is based on your ethics, personal axioms and, ultimately, your unique mode of being without undue sentiment…

Even if you renege a little on that which you reject now (by allowing it back into your life later), there is great strength in making an energetic stand of rejecting what you consider to be standing in the way of transformation and growth. This may include social peer group pressures.

Image from Google
Do not acquiesce to that which seems to have power over you, if it is not feeding you; yield on the surface if you really have to, but not in the core of your being.

Remember that life is forever changing and you can continually start again and free yourself from anything that is unduly compromising your essence.

The Jaguar Timewave ends today. Jaguar is a warrior of the night and is in service to the Earth goddess; Jaguar is a spirit that reveres the wild and the natural, who is able to face the darkness and flourish. Jaguar illuminates the shadow with other-dimensional light. Jaguar frees us from the sterilizing aspects of civilization.

12 Serpent

Power Station, Lamma Island.
Original photo by Carey, but greatly enhanced thanks to Kookie Birjukov

Understanding the importance of spending time in nature and the vitality it gives you.

Be in the natural body, connected to nature and allowing your mind and emotions to follow the energy it gives you.


A day of understanding the instinctive level of reality. A day where you can connect to your own survival instinct and survival impulse. Today is a good day to recognize how the biorhythms shape our psychology and how they are interlinked with the invisible environment.

The snake is the manifest expression of the kundalini life force, the power to live and evolve. Serpent issues are issues of sex and power. The battle for power in the world takes place on many fronts and includes the agendas of many covert groups on Earth, but ultimately the whole drama of our evolution is part of the cosmic theatre.

Heavenly Fruits, by Vladimir Kush

We exist in a living universe and life is everywhere. Our kundalini plugs us into the cosmic drama and the evolutionary imperative of creation.

The 2012 effect is a recalibration of the Earth’s energy field. The total consciousness of the Human Species is a significant, arguably the primary component of the environment within which we move around. Our environment is the total planetary organism, as defined by the Earth’s energy and consciousness field, which interpenetrates and encompasses the electromagnetic field.

An LjL flipchart
Our task is to stay conscious and to recognize the planetary level of change. By so doing, we come into alignment with the evolutionary necessity – even a small minority of people doing so will ensure survival and growth. Awakened consciousness resonates with the evolutionary impulse and therefore acts as the conduit for the transformational impulse.

Human culture emits a frequency and the frequency needs to be upgraded. As individuals, we cannot take on the responsibility of changing the culture directly – it is overwhelming and the overt power is in the hands of lower consciousness, in particular those souls enslaved by power lust.

However, as individuals we can act as nodes and conduits – unseen by the external radars – for the energy force to flow through.

Quite simply, recognize the larger view of time and space and connect intellectually, intuitively and emotionally to the evolutionary energy of change that is unmistakable. You will then be coming into alignment with the life force currents.

Good for you, good for me, good for us all.

Gateway to Utopia, by Nele-Diel on Deviantart

[Extra message from Laurence to contemplate on 12 Serpent:]
How do we survive, grow and flourish in the maelstrom of competing powers and the seemingly overwhelming forces that control or attempt to control our lives?

We stay alert, responsive and open – connected to body and our own power, recognizing the basic need for money, but not giving our power away to anxiety.

The life force in our body is an expression of the evolutionary urge of the species; it is highly adaptable and can shed the skin of an outworn reality. Recognize your power to regenerate, value your power to reject that which does not serve you and value the power of your passion.

Today is a good day to have a clear perspective on power.

11 Lizard (Seed)

Image from the Center for Food Safety

Opening the doors between what are normally compartmentalized realities. A day of modification; allow new energy in.

Seed is the first stage of abundance. All plants, or animals for that matter, produce a disproportionate number of seeds; nature allows for what we call ‘waste’ by producing the seeds for new life in magnificent abundance.

The Lizard is a sophisticated absorber of the Sun and has a capacity to store sunlight. Sunlight, and the subtle energy of prana, is the pre-manifest seed of life.

Today is the 11th day of the Jaguar Timewave, which is all about an instinctive level of reality. The Jaguar prowls the shadows, the underworld and the night with a relaxed alertness, knowing that opportunity is omnipresent. 11 is the number of adaptation of form; it is the open gate, the frequency of the transparency of all form. 

Our spontaneous cat, Nougat,
surrounded by the seeds of new life on the roof terrace

Today, do not solidify your situation with rationality. Instead, be of an open mind; be flexible and spontaneous like a cat. 

In the shadow of the world, new life, light and opportunity gestate. Be confident about the true abundance of life and allow yourself to absorb.

With a playful and easy affirmative gnosis, respond to the glimpses of feeling that Life is offering you abundance.

If you feel indebted, today offers the energy for your liberation.

10 Foredawn (Dark House, In the House, Dark Night)

Dawn, Koh Samui, Thailand

The subtle, almost indefinable presence of the soul is ubiquitous.

The subject becomes object as you become conscious of the atmosphere. The environment you walk in is an environment of consciousness – the physical world is not solid. A good day to walk through walls.

Image from Google

The manifestation of the dreamlike space between the worlds

The Cosmos and the atom are mainly space, but space is an emptiness that is full.

Today, be still and face the darkness before the dawn. Look into the mystery of your life without concluding what will be.

A good day to feel the fecundity of reality. Feel the potentials without grasping and without fear; listen not to the mind, but find the dream space.

Space in the cell, from Google
Be the daydreamer who awaits with anticipation, for it is anticipation itself that is the goal of today. Gaze into the space in front of you and feel the space that opens up in your body.

Residing in anticipation brings you home to the soul.

Life is a Plenitude.

[Personal message first posted by Laurence on 10 Foredawn of 18 June 2010, and several times thereafter, to illustrate the texture and energy of today:]

The picture above is of Real De Catorce, Mexico, a place I visited in 1997 with no money and rather unexpectedly. After a few days of enforced semi-fasting, I had a vision of 2012* whilst sitting here at dawn, overlooking the mountains.

The town is slightly haunted. It is an ex-silver-mining town with crumbling walls and buildings and is gateway to the peyote desert. It is melancholic and beautiful; the land is wistful and so are the people.

The atmosphere of Real De Catorce at that time for me was wholly permeable and it was where I stayed at the end of a six-month trip that yielded the harvest of the Mayan experience.

[ * Note from Carey: Click here to read Laurence's poem of his vision, experienced while in the Foredawn space, of a city he came to believe was in China, and later – after we had held a number of shamanic journeying workshops there – felt sure was a vision of Guangzhou.]
