The secrets of Mayan Astrology

The Mayan Calendar is a unique tool which has come to us through centuries. Using it, Mayan priests could forecast the global events together with the future of every person. At the moment of your birth, you get a surge of energy, which influences you during your whole life. The Mayan Horoscope takes into account this influence and gives a full characteristic to each of 20 signs. To find out The Mayan Sign one needs to use special tabs to relate the modern calendars to the Mayan one. 

Mayan Calendar Structure

This calendar is based upon a cycle of 260 days, which is devided into periods of 20 and13 days. Each day of a 20-days cycle has its own name, and they successively interchange: the first day is Crocodile or Imix, then Wind or Ik and so on. This cycle overlaps with a 13-days cycle, the days of which do not have their own names and differ only by numbers from 1 to 13. The first day of the 260-days cycle is called Crocodile – 1, then comes Wind – 2 and so on. When it comes to the fourteenth day, the 13-days cycle counting starts from the very beginning – 1. For example, after Reed or Ben – 13 comes Jaguar or Ixl – 1. After the 260-days cycle finishes, it starts all over again. 

This is the way the Mayan Calendar is arranged. Besides these cycles, Maya people had longer cycles such as tuns (360 days), k’atuns (7200 days) and b’ak’tuns (144000 days). 

The whole epoch consisted of 260 k’atuns, that is approximately equal to 5125 solar years. The past epoch was called the Fifth Sun and it was finished on December, 21st 2012. Now it is the epoch of the Sixth Sun.
