The culture of this people has always attracted the attention of scientists thanks to the perfectly developed mathematical and astronomical sciences, hieroglyphic writing, unusual architecture, knowledge of agriculture and other achievements in art and crafts. An integral part of the Mayan calendar is the Mayan horoscope, which is based not on the movement of planets and stars, on which modern astrological horoscopes are known, but the energy rhythms of the universe.

Every day horoscope Maya, in accordance with the diurnal motion of the Earth, has its own name and sign, which determines everything that happens at this time. Surprisingly, even global events fully correspond to the character of the sign under the influence of which the time period is located.

That is why to determine your horoscope sign Maya to modern man, accustomed to the 365-day cycle and the annual cycle of the lunar calendar, it is difficult.

Structure of the Mayan Calendar
One of the oddities of this calendar is that it is based not on a year and not a month, but a complete cycle of 260 days, or 20 periods of 13 days. More precisely, this 260-day cycle is the result of overlapping two cycles — a 20-day and a 13-day cycle. The days of the 20-day cycle have their names, which successively replace each other: first comes the day of Imix (Crocodile), followed by the day of Ik (Wind), then — Akbal (Night), etc. This cycle is superimposed 13 days, days in which do not have their names and differ only in numbers — from 1 to 13. The first day of the 260-day calendar circle is called Crocodile-1 day. Next come Day of Wind-2, Day of Night-3 and so on. When the day comes to thirteen, the account is updated and starts again with one. So, for example, after the day of Reed-13 follows the day of Jaguar-1. After a lapse of 260 days, the account is renewed from the beginning, that is, from the day of Crocodile-1.
If a day has a numerical value of 1, it is considered the start of a new thirteen-day cycle. Each cycle is called the first day, since it is the first day that leaves an imprint on all 13 days of the cycle. Hence, it is clear that the cycles in the Mayan calendar have the same names as the days, but follow each other in a different order. The first is the cycle of the Crocodile (beginning with Crocodile-1), followed by the Jaguar cycle (the beginning of the Jaguar-1 day), then the Deer cycle (beginning on the day of Deer-1), etc. To determine what Mayan day and cycle falls on today, it is sufficient to know what sign it was yesterday. For example, if yesterday was the Lizard-3 day, today, accordingly, there should be a Serpent-4, tomorrow — Death-5, etc. Well, in order to know the cycle, you need to find the next day with the number 1 in the reverse order. In the case of Snake-4, the first day of the cycle is Wind-1, accordingly, the Day of Serpent-4 falls on the Wind cycle.
Traditionally, the beginning of our Mayan era was chosen as the day that according to the Gregorian calendar falls on August 11, 3114 BC. This is the beginning of the day Imish-5 (Crocodile-5, cycle Earth). Using this date as the starting point, you can determine which Mayan day and cycle falls on any date of the European calendar. Or, for convenience, to avoid confusion with the zero year (which was not in the Gregorian calendar) and other calendar subtleties, you can use any other starting point, for example: for the 20th century it is convenient to count from January 1, 1900 (Etznab- 4, or Flint-4, the Eagle cycle), and for the 21st century - from January 1, 2000 (day Ik-11, or Wind-11, the Skull cycle).
So the Mayan calendar is arranged. In addition to these 260-day cycles, the Maya also counted longer cycles — tuna (360-day intervals), katuns (20 tuyas for 360 days, ie 7200 days), baktuns (20 katuns or 144,000 days). Finally, the whole epoch counts 260 katunas in Maya, that is, 5200 years (more precisely 5200 tones, which corresponds to approximately 5125 solar years). The last Mayan era was called the Fifth Sun and ended on the night of December 21, 2012. And what’s next? Next — the Sixth Sun.
