Mayan Headdress with 1 MEN

Bookmark and Share

On 5th March 2013 at local sunset, we are entering the cycle of 1 MEN in the Sacred Mayan Calendar.
The Mayan day-sign MEN is associated with birds and the Eagle in particular.

The ancient Maya placed much value upon bird feathers which they used as currency and in trade.

Feathers represent the celestial part of the famous Mesoamerican symbol of the plumed serpent. Linked to cosmic and spiritual dimensions feathers are an essential feature in the magnificent ceremonial headdresses worn by the Maya gods, priests and kings.

Reminding us of Mayan patterns, the bird and feather theme was beautifully expressed in this crop circle in the summer of 2009.
An extraordinary headdress formation appeared near the sacred site of Silbury Hill, which is part of the Avebury neolithic stone circle complex.

In this place of profound ancestral knowledge we are thus reminded of both our earthy and cosmic connexions as, in this period after the Portal of the Winter Solstice 2012, we are called to return to our galactic identity.
