Sunday-Monday, September 20-21, 2020 13 DOG - Day #130 and 1 MONKEY - Day #131 marks "the very middle" of the current 260-day cycle of May 14-January 28. One of the twenty 'zero-point doorways' opens. These "doorways" occurs every 13 days 'between' weekdays 13 and 1.  (See Blog for more.)

Venus nearest point to Earth was: June 3, 2020
Next Earth-Venus-Sun alignment: January 9, 2022

The Feathered Serpent - Venus as 'The Morning Star' returned on June 6, 2020.

For many thousands of years the Mayan calendar is endlessly repeating over & over again the universal 260-day birthing cycle of creation. 

~9-months  =  266 days  =  260 + 6 days  =  normal gestation birth cycle for women (on average, about 266-days)

The Mayan Calendar, the “Tzolkin” in Maya language (pronounced: ZOL-kin), is the original 'Calendar of The Americas' exactly calibrated to the orbits of the planets Venus and Mars, and to the solar-lunar eclipse cycles of the Sun and Moon.

NEW > > 8-year Venus Cycles 1922-2026

The current Mayan 52-year cycle 1987-2039 is composed of four 13-year cycles.
The 'time shift' into Bak'tun 14 (394-year cycle) began on December 21, 2012, and is slowly taking place over a 26-year period, 2013-2039, in two13-year phases.

Current year is:  8 MIRROR etz'nab'


~Sunday, January 12, 2020

Day #138 -  8 MIRROR etz'nab'

2020 is Mayan year 8 MIRROR etz'nab'

2020 is Mayan year 8 of the 13-year cycle 2013-2026

The year 2019 began a 4-year cycle: 2019-2022


Mayan Year 8 started ~January 12, 2020, in the 260-day cycle that began ~August 28, 2019, and completed ~May 13, 2020. Only then, after the new 260-day cycle began May 14, 2020, were we fully into Year 8  energies.

We began 2020 with Venus as "The Shadow Twin," Venus as 'The Evening Star'' through June 3, 2020, with many bumps on 'The Roadmap to Peace'.

The current 8-year Venus cycle we are in, 2018-2026, has five (5) transit points. [See the chart on this page.]

The beginning point was October 24, 2018, and the second Earth-Venus-Sun alignment point was June 3, 2020.

This beginning phase was like wandering around in the wilderness. We know we're going somewhere important but we're just going thru the wilderness trying to find our way out.

June 3, 2020, marked 'The End' of the 'wilderness' phase in the 8-year Venus cycle and so sudden unexpected shifts of consciousness and world events begin to put everything into focus as to what needs to 'change' to keep our planet on the positive path it has been on since the HARMONIC CONVERGENCE world-wide 2-days of prayer in August 1987. Those 2-day worldwide days of prayers for peace celebrated and marked the end of nine 52-year "Hell Cycles" that began in 1519 with the arrival of Cortes into the "New World," along with the Spanish Inquisition.

Just like the Mayan calendar is sectioned into five (5) 52-day cycles, so too each Venus 8-year cycle has five(5) cycles, each 1.6-years.

Major social shifts that promote moralizing creates 'Do Something About It' actions and services arise, especially after the end of 'the wilderness' 52-day cycle on Day #52 July 4, 2020

Who profits off of fear and divisiveness, perceiving and discussing everything as "Us vs Them" ?

So focus and KNOW that spiritual power is increasing, for Good, thru YOU.

In regard to current events, keep in mind that when 'emotionally positive' spiritual POWER is on the increase, the 'negative' spiritual FORCES respond with negative thoughts, words and deeds. Pretty simple to understand actually.

Time for another 'Harmonic Convergence' world-wide day of prayer.

*NOTE: The BEST weekend date in 2020 for another world-wide DAY OF PRAYERS FOR PEACE would be: Saturday October 17, 2020, because it is the SAME WEEK on the Mayan Calendar as the one December 21, 2012 occurred in.

Life on Earth is PERFECT karma every moment, no matter what. And the only thing that is REAL is the Love and Peace you share with All beings in All situations.

The exact moment the Moon is passing 'directly overhead' usually indicates the most emotional time of each day.

Knowing the exact time when the Moon is "Meridian Passing" or directly over your location is important.

Time and Date is a website to find this information.

Just type in your location in the search bar.

*Note: All Mayan dates on this website are the exact proven accurate calendar of the Guatemala highlands Maya 'count of days', the oldest Mayan communities. The Mayan calendar 'count of days' of the Yucatan lowlands Maya, used by the-late DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES, is miscounted by 57 days, as of 2020. The Yucatan lowlands Maya 'count of days' miscount began hundreds of years ago and is no longer aligned with the rising and setting cycles of the planet Venus. This split can be traced back into the 1500's with the arrival of the "divide & conquer" Spanish army in 1519.

Time to switch-over to using the Guatemala highlands Mayan calendar, so get used to it.
(It was a challenge to "make the switch" at first, but I did in 1997.)

Good words and god deeds should be established attributes of character, rather than isolated occurances.

Each of the five cycle of 52-days can be associated with general "levels of consciousness" or awareness as identified by the research of the-late DR. DAVID R. HAWKINS and presented in his clinically proven "Map of Consciousness" in his 1995 New York Times best selling book Power vs Force, as reviewed in this chart (edited for educational purposes).
Purchase Dr. Hawkins Map HERE.

All levels DOWN from Level 1,000 indicate Increasing Resistance to perfect love and peace.

There are 10,000 different possible Levels of Consciousness and Awareness on Earth that one can experience and focus on, reduced here to a logarithic scale from 1 to 1,000.

The "bottom" 199 levels are predatory in nature, without awareness of spiritual power, compassion or the capacity for love.

Listen to the-late DR. HAWKINS explain the Levels of Consciousness in this link (Part 1 of 6):
Cycle 1
Days #1 - #52  represent House ONE: The Wilderness & Ego @ potential levels 1-199.
Cycle 2
Days #53 - #104  represent House TWO: Good-Works Service @ potential levels 200-399.
Cycle 3
Days #105 - #156  represent House THREE: Reason to Love @ potential levels 400-599.
Cycle 4
Days #157 - #208  represent House FOUR: The Bliss Teachers @ potential levels 600-799.
Cycle 5
Days #209 - #260  represent House FIVE: The Divine Ones @ potential levels 800-1,000.

Cycle 1 - Ego Challenges Emerge when Conditions allow
Cycle 2 - Moralizing, Creates "Do Something About It" Actions and Services
Cycle 3 - Reasonable Planning, Try Unconditional Love and Acceptance, Transfiguration Begins
Cycle 4 - Effortless Intentions Realized without Force by Power
Cycle 5 - Complete Enlightened Conclusion draws any resisting Negative in preparation for Next Cycle

"The Feathered Serpent" - Venus as 'The Morning Star' Returned on June 6, 2020

Venus was at its nearest point to Earth on June 3, 2020.

Many cultures around the world notice and record the rising and setting patterns of the brightest light in the evening and early morning skies the planet named-in-English: "Venus." 

The Olmec and Maya cultures of Mexico and the Guatemala highlands in Central America may have been the first to create a 260-day Venus calendar, recognized today as the most accurate calendar in the world.

In Maya lore, Venus, the bright light traveling the sky, is recognized as the "Two Brothers": the Feathered Serpent and his Shadow Twin brother.

The planet Venus rises in the East, in the early dawn sky as the Morning Star or "Feathered Serpent" and is the third brightest- light in the sky after our Sun and Moon.

Venus shines bright in the early morning dawn Eastern skies as the Morning Star for 236-days or approximately 8-months.

The Feathered Serpent days are days of of: peace, rebirth, rebuilding and common unity.

After 236-days as the Feathered Serpent/Morning Star Venus disappears from the skies for 90-days, slowly spinning away, farther and farther from Earth, hidden away from view behind the Sun.

After 90-days hidden behind the Sun, Venus is seen rising again after sunset in the West evening-sky.

There in the western skies Venus shines as the Evening Star or "Shadow Twin" for 250-days.

The Shadow Twin days are days of: ceremonial challenges and ceremonial conflict theater, or, if not dealt with in a high spiritual energy of integrity, real war and unexpected challenges, forced changes that break-up old patterns.

Venus as the Evening Star becomes brighter and brighter as it moves towards Earth, closer and closer on its nearest approach to Earth every 1.6-years.

Then, just as Venus is at its brightest right after sunset, it disappears for 8-days. In Maya lore, the "Shadow Twin" has died.

For 8-days Venus moves across the front face of the Sun, hidden by the glare of the Sun, and directly between the Sun and the Earth.  It’s at these moments, every ~19 months, when our nearest neighbor planet Venus passes close-by to Earth.

This exact planetary alignment "inferior conjunction" of Earth-Venus-Sun next occurs on January 9, 2022.

After 8-days hidden, Venus reappears, reborn at dawn at the side of the Sun, at sunrise in the East dawn sky.

In its new phase as the Morning Star, the Mayan "Feathered Serpent" is the brightest light before dawn for the next 236-days.

The Morning Star/Feathered Serpent days of peace, rebirth, rebuilding and common unity return. The Tides of Time.

When Venus is approaching Earth as the Evening Star: the combined magnetic & gravitational forces of the Earth and Venus, as they move closer together, increases pressure and stress. 

For example: when two bar magnets, with the same positive-sides or negative-sides facing each other, are forced together this creates a strong RESISTANCE & ENERGY re-balancing, which precipitates the stronger force-fields energy & stress the closer the magnets are.

When Venus becomes the Morning Star: the combined magnetic & gravitational forces of the Earth and Venus: decrease, subside, move apart, and reduces overall pressure and stress.

These rising and setting patterns of the planet Venus are repeated on-average every 584.92-days, that's about every ~19-months

These Venus 'fly-by' patterns repeat exactly five-times every 8-years, during five different months of the year.

Let’s examine this 8-year pulse, this 8-year rhythm of Venus.

It is a VERY important rhythm.  Indeed, it is a rhythm that connects to the musical scale, a truly sacred rhythm pattern that holds the key to understanding the musical encoding of time in our solar system.

If we could super speed-up time and watch the orbits of the planets around our Sun from high above our solar system, we would see that over every 8-year-cycle of time Venus exactly aligns between the Sun and the Earth 5-times, creating a spiraling 5-pointed star pattern around the Sun.

NEW > 8-year Venus Cycles 1922-2026


The top point on the star pattern indicates the start point position of every 8-year Venus cycle.
That day will always be a "SUN" ajaw day and the first day to see Venus rise as the 'Morning Star' the Maya named 'Feathered Serpent.'
Cycle 1 - Ego Challenges Emerge when Conditions allow
Cycle 2 - Moralize, Create Positive "Do Something About It" Actions and Services
Cycle 3 - Reasonable Planning, Try Unconditional Love and Acceptance, Transfiguration Begins
Cycle 4 - Effortless Intentions Realized without Force by Power
Cycle 5 - Complete Enlightened Conclusion draws any resisting Negative in preparation for Next Cycle


Note that on the Mayan calendar the "zero point" is between days 13 and day 1 every 13 days and THAT IS WHY THE MAYA ONLY USED THE DAY SYMBOLS FOR THESE TWO DAYS so to identify when THE 'ZERO POINT" DOORWAYS OPEN.

The most powerful "zero point" doorway time shift on the Mayan calendar always occurs between the last Day #260 and the first Day #1.

Which explains why the "Harmonic Convergence" over the weekend of August 16-17, 1987 wa so powerful.

The Mayan calendar "breathes" an in-breath & out-breath, and "holding" the breathe on the 'outer' weeks. .

Note that the 'fetus spirit' is shown entering the womb of a woman at around Day #90, which is signified in the right-side drawing.

A small red symbol  ^  highlights the mid-point of Weekday 7 in every 13-day mayan Week.

The new column: Moon Phases, to the right of the January-December Gregorian calendar date column on the left-side.

For the Moon at the Perigee point: the Moon's orbit is at its closest point to Earth; the Moon appears larger; creates more stress.

For the Moon at the  Apogee point: the Moon's orbit is at its farthest away point from Earth; the Moon appears smaller; creates less stress.

Around the Perigee point: plants branch-up to leaf-out; the combined magnetic and gravitational-forces of the earth-moon-sun as they move closer together increases pressure forcing-expansion.

For example: When squeezing the middle of a balloon, the balloon expands opposite the squeeze point;  or when two bar-magnets with the same positive-sides or negative-sides facing each other are forced-together it creates a strong RESISTANCE and ENERGY re-balancing, which precipitates the stronger force-fields energy and stress the closer the magnets are.

Around the Apogee point: plants withdraw their energy inward to the roots; the combined magnetic-gravitational forces of the earth-moon-sun subside, move apart, and decrease the pressure and stress.

For gardening applications, according to proven and ancient bio-dynamic gardening practices, the times of these two Moon-phases signify a void and suggest a ceasation of all gardening activity.

For these no gardening rest periods:
12-hours plus or minus either side of the exact time of Perigee and Apogee.

A respected Mayan Calendar specialist for 30+years, Richard Alan Eagle is the most highly regarded student of the-late DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES - The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology

Richard created handout-charts combined with a January-December 12-month Gregorian calendar in 1989 for his first edition of The Mayan Calendar Guidebook to help teach his first Mayan calendar workshop in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

In 1991, Willard van de Bogart, a close friend of the-late DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES, tells Richard that José confided in him, saying, "José said to me, that, of all the people he knew, besides his wife Lloydine, that you have the best understanding of his Mayan calendar research'."  Willard presented to Richard one of the first pre-production DREAMSPEL kits, along with a hand-written note from José with the words, "Keep up the good work."

After moving to Sedona to be with author, actor and filmmaker Shaeri Richards, they traveled and he taught the Mayan-calendar and DREAMSPEL classes in: Phoenix, Arizona, Mount Shasta, San Francisco, Sacremento, Santa Barbara, Salt Lake City, Durang and Atlanta.

Watch rare video footage of their July1992 public DREAMSPELL presentation in Sedona, AZ, here: 


In 1993, Richard met The Mayan Factor author DR. JOSÉ ARGÙELLES in Sedona, pictured here:

The 1996 edition of The Mayan Calendar Guidebook over 4,000+copies sold around the world and had media coverage by the TV show Strange Universe on Canadian television.

Read The Mayan Calendar Guidebook review in 1996:

New Age Retailer  magazine   

July/August 1996, pp.44-45:

"This excellent book is a thorough teaching reference that is also easy to understand. The Mayan Calendar Guidebook presents the what, why, and how of tracking the energies and other information presented on the calendars…This reference book should become part of your regular inventory.  Customers who are just learning to use a Mayan calendar will find it answers most of their questions and prepares them to be able to use any current Mayan calendar more effectively."

In 1998 science genius and inventor the-late DR. PATRICK FLANAGAN called the research of Richard Alan Eagle, "A masterpiece."
