1-Oc Trecena Analysis Part 1 of 2

1-Oc: Know your Territory

Link to previous trecena: 1-Caban

Prelude: Video Lesson

1-Oc [30 July 2011] One Love

Born on this day: Eric Idle, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Sammy Sosa, Frances McDormand, Gabrielle, Sharon Stone

"American Beer is a lot like making love on a canoe - it's F-ing close to water." - Eric Idle (1-Oc)

The first stage of each trecena is equivalent in the stage sequence to Imix in the uinal sequence, since it comes first. This assumption is quickly put in parentheses and must be taken in context, since the Tzolkin is cyclical, and has no beginning nor end. It is only for instructional and research purposes (especially for Western scholars) that Imix is considered to be the first sun-sign.

Stage 1 can be called “All-in-One”, since it is the most rough and basic form of a particular sun-sign (Oc in this case). Ian Xel Lungold called stage 1 Unity for good reason. It is the unity of mind and purpose that is embodied in the first stage, split asunder in the second stage (much like a living cell), and continues to develop and manifest throughout the trecena. Imix serves the same purpose for the 20-day uinal.

Many of the Stage 1 people I know personally have the same naïve sense that everyone can work out things together if they really tried. It is a young mindset, typical to the Source of all things.

So, 1-Oc is the condensed, most subtle and primary version of everything you’ve ever learned/experienced about the sun-sign known as Dog (refer to the video lesson above for some keywords). It is the brainstorming session of sowing Seeds of Love and Loyalty, which begins to grow tomorrow and continues to evolve over the next 12 days.

Here is one of my favorite sketches featuring two Monty Pythons. Terry Jones (9-Muluc) is pestered by the young and naïve  bachelor Eric Idle (1-Oc) about intimacy with ladies.

  • In the uinal, Muluc comes right before Oc.
  • In the Tzolkin, 9-Muluc comes long before 1-Oc.

    hey eagle, i’m soooooo enjoying this. Three more dogs for your pound: bill maher 1 oc..robert gates and porn star ginger lynn 12 oc..haha..

    • Hey Brett, how’s it going? I’m glad you’re enjoying the blog, and that you’re taking the time to send me some feedback – I appreciate it!
      Thanks for the extra dogs for our growing pound. I actually looked up Bill Maher a while ago, but for some reason I didn’t add him to my Excel spreadsheet. Now that you were the one who mentioned him, I realize that this is the reason I forgot… I know this might not make too much sense, but the mechanics of cause and effect do not share our rigid perception of linear time.

    Interesting how the debt vote aug 2nd is the same day as the jfk assasination…the second death of american innocence?

    • American innocence has a peculiar way of coming back from the dead every time you think it kicked the bucket.
      You are absolutely on the money with that observation. I hope the rest of the US will remain “on the money” come Wednesday…
      US culture and politics in general have plenty of Tzolkin connections. For example – James Madison and James Monroe (4th and 5th presidents respectively) were both born 10-Chuen.

  3. Another nice post, the videos were definitely a great direction. I’m a 2/Dog myself so this trecena is always nice for me.

    makes perfect sense eagle..thank you

  5. brett gordhamer

    hey eagle, miss your posts, quit your day job avatar your words are needed and appreciated..enjoying tolkien on his tzolkian 9 etznab..I was just drawn to look up hitler today who is 9 oc..interesting…in lakesh..

    • Hey Brett! I took your comment to heart and cleared some Time last night to write the 1-Akbal analysis properly. I’d love to hear what you thought about it.
      If an employee wishes to dedicate his time to writing a blog he must quit his job, indeed. However, I own a business, so my way out is exactly the opposite – I need to hire someone else to replace me… I’m still working on it, but I have to say that your comment warmed my heart – thanks!
      Regarding 9-Oc and Hitler – it is very interesting. He was indeed a popular leader of the masses in his time, as a Dog should be. Steven Spielberg was also born 9-Oc, and so did Charles Bukowski. They’re all due up in the next northern trecena: 1-Ik.
      In Lakesh, Eagle

  6. Good comment to follow from, as I was going to add JK Rowling, 10 oc, as it ties in well with Lord of the rings saga, also the release date of the movie. The final chapter.
    Love your work, only new here, but can see if will have much to take and possible some to give. I’m Jeremy from Sunshine Coast Australia. 7 Offering.

  7. How to pronounce trecena ? Its like in a word seven : “tre-se-na”
    Much appreciation for your blog ,Eagle.

    • Hey Kate,

      Not knowing Spanish, I assumed my chances of pronouncing it right are slim.
      Thanks for correcting me! I’ll practice it in my next video.

      You’re quite welcome,
