As the wave of the Mars-Pluto conjunction continues to pass today, let's consider something else - the Sun.

And, to expand our imaginations, let's look at it a different way.  Let's not look at it from the traditional Western astrological perspective, but from the perspective of the Sacred Calendar of the Sun, the knowledge of which was retained by the Maya and called the tzolkin.

Today is 7 Reed in the tzolkin.  The Maya tell us that the number (7) is a tone that is emitted throughout our galaxy.  It is a frequency.  The Maya tell us that the sign (Reed) is our Sun's specific addition to that frequency.  It's added on (carrier wave).

The work of the late Ian Lungold, in my opinion, is the most beautiful work into the study of the tzolkin.  His work has been preserved at  Here is the (abbreviated) report for 7 Reed:

7:  Seven stands as a mirror to divide light and dark and to reflect all that is and is not.  Seven is associated with the source of creation and the flow of divine will.  With a keen sense of ethics, seven establishes purpose to current and future goals.

(Now this is plenty of info in and of itself to guide us, and it is from the Pleroma -- the Galactic Center.  The Sun's addition:)

Reed:  Reed (energy) is the spiritual essence, protector, and guiding light for the family and home...Very tough and analytical, Reed endeavors to bring peace, harmony, and order...Reed is blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling, which are very often put to the test...Reed needs appreciation, can be inflexible, and has high expectations, which can erode affinity...The lesson of Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe.

What does reading this about today in the tzolkin feel like to you?

I have studied the tzolkin for a dozen years.  The utmost integrity is necessary on Reed Days - doing the right thing.  7 Reed is the reflection of ethics and integrity.

It resonates for some and not others.

I am focusing on this for several reasons, but the main one is that I want to send some love to the Sun today (Ian style), and, well, astrology is not the best way to honor it. 

The tzolkin honors not only our life giver, our Sun, but the Galactic Center, our life bringer.

This report is a temporary switch from the way I usually do it, but switching it up expands the imagination -- and that's what this new astrological year is all about: 27 Aries - "through imagination, a lost opportunity is regained."

Let's do the Reed thing (the right thing) today (and maybe give some thanks and reflection to the Sun/Son).

(I may pop back later on with some Reed energy.)
