Day 2. Ehecatl (Wind)


Day number 2 is represented by Ehecatl’s head, Lord of the Winds. It is the Divine Breath, the vital principle, the power of the Creative WORD, showing us the care we must employ when making use of the verb.

“5 Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. 7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, 8 but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness.”
James 3:5-9Bible, New International Version

Ehecatl represents the God of Winds, movement, breath and life. Just as the wind carries the seeds that fertilize Mother Earth, just like breath enlivens the body and the seed of humankind leads to creation.

Ruling God: Related to culture, soul, art and spirit. Those born on this day are considered to have a tendency towards esotericism and Jinn science. This second sign is ruled by Quetzalcoatl: creator of men, God-Priest. It also shows the ocelocopilli, the conical hat made from the skin of the tiger.

The Location of the Day in the Borgia Codex: Located at its Maxtatl (loincloth) and moving towards the rear, representing the need to abandon all theories, all which is temporal.

“’Hurricane’ (Mayan term, which was latter carried to South America) meant to the Aztec Hierophants: Wind, Breath, Word, Verb; it incarnated in those superb beings and founded the Crys6tal Island, the civilization of the Aesir.”
Samael Aun WeorThe Secret Doctrine of Anahuac, Chapter VI
