Sacred Tzolk'in Days

The Meanings of The Days

According to Mayan cosmovision, a spirit world exists alongside the material world. Twenty powerful beings called "nahuales" from the spirit world exert a powerful influence on people and events in this material world. Called "Lords of the Day", the nahuales determine each day’s energy –- its potential, the sort of things that work best on that date. The Tzolk'in Calendar is the sacred calendar of the Maya that maps out those days. It is the calendar that predicts what the energy of each day is good for, a bit like the Farmer's Almanac. Is today good for planting, harvesting, magic, travel, taking care of your home, beginning something new, or something else entirely? Below you will find a chart that explains the potential of each day.

There are 20 days in the sacred Tzolk'in Calendar that are repeated 13 times each giving the calendar a total of 260 days. Each of the 20 nahuales (Days represented by a Lord) is preceded by a number from 1 to 13, which tells the intensity of the nahual’s energy.  For example: 2 Kawak has quiet energy, 8 Kawak is balanced, and 13 Kawak is almost too strong and a bit crazy.

 

The 13 days make up a month called a "trecena" and each month has an over-riding energy too! Wow, it is a lot to take in! But, no worries because . . . 

Below you will find the basics for each of the twenty days so you can get a general idea of what each nahual's power is all about, but to discover the specific energy for today, you can click on the button that says Today's Horoscope. Today's Horoscope combines the power of the Day Lord of today with the intensity (number or tone) of today and the overall type of energy in this trecerna (13 day month) to give you an in-depth description of how you can work with the specific energy of this day. (How cool is that!)

Here is a little extra info you might like:

As you are going through the 20 days below, you will notice a few things. Each day is represented by a Maya Glyph that has a name. These are the names of the "nahuales" which are the powerful beings from the Otherworld that rule over the days. The names are different in various Mayan languages and here (because I live on the Yucatan Peninsula) I am using the Yucatec names for the days. Beneath the Mayan names you will find their English translations. You will also notice that there is a "direction" associated with each day. The directions are very important because each direction has a different vibe, or different type of energy.

  • East is beginning and unity

  • West is adjusting and duality

  • North is diminishing or getting less or smaller

  • South is increasing or harvest. 

You will also notice colors associated with each day. These are the colors of the candles used in Maya ceremonies to represent the four cardinal directions.

  • East is red

  • West is Black

  • North is White

  • South is Yellow

IMPORTANT: As you move through the directions and their energies, keep in mind that the goal is to bring balance. Finding your CENTER is of utmost importance. Without a strong center, you become unbalanced and out of rhythm with the universe and it is impossible to live in harmony with it. (Note: The color of the center is either green or blue green and the candles placed in the center in Maya rituals are these colors.)
