For the Maya, July 26 each year marks the start of a new cycle and a new “personality” or essence for the year ahead, signaled by its own sign or glyph. The Day Out of Time on July 25 is perhaps more important for the Maya than the Mayan New Year July 26. It is a day to give thanks and reflect on what has been achieved and what lessons are still to be learned. July 25 is a link day where new ventures should wait for the energy of the new year; it is also a time when anything can happen.
This year’s day out of time is called Yellow Seed. It asks us to know the power of our intentions, words and actions just like living seeds cast into the field. May we consciously tend to the gardens of our lives and our relations that we may grow, thrive, ripen, unfold our gifts, and pollinate the flowering of human consciousness. This year empowers us to align with the generative power of the earth; to carry on vital legacies; to plant seeds of the new; to be the fruit, be the flower! Since you are already star seed this year will offer the masses hope; whether the size of a mammoth or a mustard seed, hope imbued is a priceless treasure.
