On The Wing
The Maya had intricate and precise timekeeping systems, this is the symbol of the second day of the sacred calendar made up of 20 day cycles with 13 numbers, a 260 day calender of 9 months. There was also the solar calendar and the long one, hype calling that one the Mayan Prophecy end of days, although it is neither prophecy or the end of the world. It is just a cyclical long term calender which has a beginning and an end, and will begin again late this year. There are 13 baktuns in a great cycle.
All that said, to say, this card is the unseen, creativity, the small personal wind which hopefully fills our daily sails with good ideas, well finished work, zings of brilliance. A working gift that lifts our lives and civilization above and beyond eat sleep shelter.
"Look to this day for it is life,
Today, well lived, is the very life of life." ~ From the Sanskrit
