Zodiac Signs According to Mayan Astrology

Reading time 7 min.

The variation in Astrological sciences does not differ in its essence or purpose but rather the base or inspiration. Mayan astrology gives us the same in-depth view of future and predictions. The difference in technicality arises from the use of calendars. Mayan use their calendar influenced by their culture instead of a Georgian calendar. This article will give you a brief account of Mayan astrology and Horoscope.

Mayan Calendar and Its Types

Two calendars are used in Mayan astrology, of which the most famous one is the Tzolkin calendar while the other is the Haab calendar. They are given as follows;

Tzolkin Calendar

The Tzolkin calendar is of the primary concern used for the astrological purpose in Mayan astrology. Its essence lies in the internal energy of a person. Unlike western astrology, it does not depend on the motion of planets but rather the discovery of universal energy, which is to be found in a human soul.

This spirit-centered astrology has a 260-day cycle. It can be broken down into 20 increments known as “solar tribes.” Similarly, these 20 increments are associated with a specific number and sign. This signifies its relationship with the energy of various kinds as proposed by Mayan astrology. These days and signs in combination work together to form numerous characters and personality traits which are then to be used in Mayan Horoscope.

Haab Calendar

The Haab calendar is another variation of the Mayan calendar which is much like the Georgian calendar of the west. It has a 365-day cycle and is incremented about 19 times instead of 20. The Haab calendar is even more accurate than the Georgian calendar. Although its precision was accurate, still it wasn’t used by the Mayans more often because the Tzolkin served a sacred and spiritual purpose for Mayan astrology.

Mayan astrology and its Zodiac signs

The 20 glyphs of Mayan astrology derived from the Tzolkin calendar can be described as follows;

The Tree of Life

The tree of life is a common concept which can be found in Chinese astrology likewise. It symbolizes male and female energies of the universe circling towards a center and radiating from that singularity showing a divine union. Like the ying-yang, In Mayan Astrology, they had their interpretation in terms of universal energies.

The crux of Mayan astrology is that it focuses on spiritual energy more than the planetary movement. Its predictions are derived from universal energies that reside inside humans and how it affects our personality and make up our traits.
