Mayan Astrology Basics

In Mayan Astrology there is the Birth Glyph which is somewhat like a Zodiac Sign, it focuses on growth, transformations, and life lessons.

There’s Day Signs which parallels with Birth Glyphs in meaning but concentrates on the personality and life purpose more.

There is the Trecena which is like a Moon Sign and explores your deeper self. Meanings and symbols seem to cross over from Day Glyphs to Trecenas. 

In Mayan Astrology each person has Signs and Influences in A Life Tree which works similarly to a Birth Chart.

Each person has a Galactic Tone, you could maybe compare this to numerology. This number shows how you are connected to the divine and sheds more light on your own personal life mission.

In Mayan Astrology each person has a Past Sign and Destiny Sign. The Past Sign describes your childhood and influences you when you are young. Your Destiny Sign is a guide into growth and maturity.

There is a Female and Male Sign. The Female describes passive traits that rarely come to the surface. The Female Sign’s traits come out in personal relationships, reminds me of Venus and Mars. The Male traits are obvious and active. The Male Sign is a lot like your Rising, the traits you show to the world.

Mayan Astrology (much like the Chinese Zodiac) has a Sign for groups of Years.

There are The Lords of the Night which describes your hidden self, much like the 12th House. Very little is known about The Lords of The Night.

Everyone has a Tzolkin Birthday which is a day each year that is your “spiritual birthday”. This is a day where your energy is fully active.


The king vulture was extremely prominent in Mayan mythology, lending its name and glyph to the 13th day of the month (Cozcacuauhtli, or vulture in Nahui).  The messenger between humans and the gods was said to be a deity in the form of a winged man with the head of a king vulture, which many have suggested is why the king vulture is called “king”.  It was also believed that the vulture’s blood and feathers were cures for many diseases.

Three Problems with Deciphering the Indus Script
  1. no firm information is available about its underlying language. Was this an ancestor of Sanskrit or Dravidian, or of some other Indian language family, such as Munda, or was it a language that has disappeared? Linear B was deciphered because the tablets turned out to be in an archaic form of Greek; Mayan glyphs because Mayan languages are still spoken.
  2. no names of Indus rulers or personages are known from myths or historical records: no equivalents of Rameses or Ptolemy, who were known to those studying hieroglyphs from records of ancient Egypt available in Greek. Therefore, even if combinations of Indic symbols appear repeatedly, we have no idea what the equivalent sound might be. It could be a ruler’s name, a stream’s name, really anything.
  3. there is, as yet, no Indus bilingual inscription comparable to the Rosetta Stone (written in Egyptian and Greek). The cracking the Mayan script started in 1876 using a Spanish manuscript from the 1500s that recorded a discussion in colonial Yucatan between a Spanish priest and a Yucatec Mayan-speaking elder about ancient Mayan writing, an equivalent find to the Rosetta Stone. It is conceivable that such a bilingual inscription may exist in Mesopotamia, given its trade links with the Indus civilization, but it has not yet been discovered.
I’d just like to point out some similarities with mexican/Latin American culture I’ve found in Rokka no Yuusha so far

Facial magical tattoos are uncommon in the general wixen populous but found throughout the world. The tattoos, generally some sort of rune or magically powerful script, can create some of the strongest and most permanent magic that can be applied to the human body. Wix typically tattoo themselves in order to further their career, e.g. applying protection runes if one is a curse-breaker, flame-retardant spells if one is a dragonologist, or sight-augmenting scripts if one is a craftsman of miniature dollhouses. As a tattooing site, the face is typically chosen because it is an area of magical potency, similar to hands and chests. While tattoos of Elder Futhark runes and alchemical symbols are among the most common facial magical tattoos, any magically powerful script can be found as a tattoo, including Mayan glyph, Pali, or ancient Chinese small seal script.
