Origin (Spanish) Ahuyama: Mexican Pumpkin, Squash
The Archetype of the Wheeler Dealer stops Whirling on this morning, Auyɛmə. In North American pumpkin mythology, it is said that pumpkin seeds give extraordinary energy and endurance to the people who eat them, and they are revered as boosters of the immune system. Ahuyama are one of the earliest known food crops, with many Native American tribes eating both pumpkin flesh and seeds. The seeds were even ground into flour and mixed with corn meal to make pumpkin bread. In the United States and Canada, pumpkins are turned into Jack O’Lanterns at Halloween and pumpkin pie is served as part of the Thanksgiving holiday.
What do we make of the Auyɛmə’s appearance on the final day of the Violet Heart, the Yung to the Yang of Wakan Tanka (Great Spirit) and the Yin of Hospitality? It is an odd word for such an interesting station, but no other words appeared to step into the spot. The pumpkin appears to respond to the imagery of the Heart and Hollowness which appeared at the Yin in the Element of Vowel; so too, it continues the theme of encasement-in-a-hard-shell which began at the Letter of Whirling’s first station, Aumail (Enameling). The Letter began with the image of a white tooth becoming hardened with enamel and ends with the arrival a fleshy pumpkin, its stringy and moist interior encased in a semi-hard shell. The Jack O’Lantern, lit from within with a candle, looks like a human head turned into an otherworldly being. The Throne of Whu, meaning Place, sunsets with a living squash plant which gives energy, nourishment, and symbolizes our fears and gratitude for life.
In the Month of the Blue Castle, the Ŋloyn’byu (𝍄𝌄, Butterfly) is the Yang complement to this station. Auyɛmə responds to the well-known symbol of transformation with a vegetable known for rapidly growing from seeds into delicious and nourishing gourds predictably every autumn. Not all transformations are as dramatic or colorful as the Ŋloyn’byu, but they are no less miraculous.
𝍍𝌅 Violet Heart 41 PM (November 10 PM) – “ʍaal (Jai’ai)”

Origin (Manx) Whaal: To sew, stitch, cobble, suture, nail
In the Manx language from the Isle of Man, the word Whaal means sew, stitch, seam, cobble, suture, nail, or clinch. Imported into Jai’ai as ʍaal at Violet Heart 41 PM, the word describes the final station of the Archetype of the Wheeler Dealer. The Whirling is past, filled with bizarre encounters with Whales and Wheke (Octopus), Owls and Whaups, Whirlpools and ʍauraurə (Blustering Winds). Damage has been done, ligaments torn, leaving abrasions that must now be repaired. After the Whirlwinds, the world must be re-made. And this remaking begins with a station devoted to suturing the wounds and stitching the cuts closed.
Whaal is the Yin to the Yang of Ŋyoŋ (𝍄𝌅), meaning To Speak (from the Chinese). What spoken words once divided, the Whaal begins to stitch together. It’s a difficult task, beyond the capacities even of the Warrior and the Hero … and at the bleeding edge of the Wheeler Dealer’s abilities. If the Wheeler Dealer’s Deal was intended to improve the world, the improvements are not yet fully apparent. The world has been torn by all the Whirling, and ultimately it will take a Higher Power to bring Unity. In the final station of the Month of the Silver Stars, the final station of the entire Kalendar, a Divine power may yet come to the rescue.
