A Little History Of Mayan Astrology

Mayan astrology is based on 20 named days that are cycled 13 times to create a 260-day calendar, the Tzolkin. These signs reflect 260 possible personality types which can be used for divination. Mayan astrology isn't as prevalent as other types of astrology, but interest is growing because of the fascination with the Maya. Their advanced knowledge of astronomy and mathematics is seen as crucial to the efficacy of this esoteric approach, but increased interest is also due to their strange and unusual traditions, rituals and the mystery surrounding their demise. The year 2012 plays a large role in their prophecy and may signal a sentinel event in history. Mayan astrology is very different from the astrology that most people are familiar with today.

Mayan astrology is an organic process, it may take one step at a time or happen instantaneously. The calendar used by these people represents a shamanic journey, and we learn to weave the past, present and future all together into one whole. It was developed as far back as 600 BC, perhaps even earlier. The interesting part of the approach was the Tzolkin Calendar that provided a way for the Mayan people to align every day of their lives with the Universal Purpose. This sounds like a beneficial approach to conducting a persons life as it discusses the progression of the human species towards its ultimate destiny.

Derived from the galaxies, the chart readings can be up to 10 pages long and will delve into who you are, and what your purpose is. Additionally your powers, strengths and futures path on this planet are illuminated, discussed and brought forth.

Mayan Astrology helps reestablish an intimate link between the Earth and Pleiades, and will initiate a journey into multidimensional time, reactivating self-awareness to help in understanding yourself. You find that an eternal view is incorporated as it synthesizes indigenous, galactic, and modern day interpretations of the calendars. This is possible because the approach is galaxy based, i.e. the Milky Way; where as traditional and conventional astrology is based on the interpretation of the alignments of all the planets in our solar system.

Maya and Aztec astrologers observed the phases of the planet Venus and correlated them with events on Earth. Venus has four basic phases: morning star, evening star, and two conjunctions with the Sun. Mayan ceremonies however, are usually performed for a particular purpose such as to bring wealth, success in business and to bless newlyweds.

Mayan civilization came into existence and functioned for over one thousand years. The ancient Maya interpreted and understood time in a particular way, which was totally different from any other existing culture or civilization. They understood and accepted the fact that time was not linear; it is just a series of repeating cycles. Mayan Time Science is an entirely new and unfamiliar world based on nothing familiar to our common understanding of the World. It truly is an adventure into a bold new world.
