Mayan Star Sign, which one are you

Posted on January 14, 2015 at 5:40 PM

There is a lot of mystery surrounding Mayan astrology that persists to this day. The exact meanings of the astrology signs is unclear. Many modern interpretations have been offered, however not many of them are based on research into Mayan culture and the symbolism used by them.

What is known is that the Haab Calendar used 19 Mayan astrology signs to represent the movement of the days throughout the year. Many of the meanings and symbolism are based on aspects important to their culture; weather, the jaguar, the four directions, and astronomy.

Mayan Zodiac Symbols And NamesModern Mayan people have not provided further meaning into the symbolism of the signs, so there are a lot of different interpretations available. I have included the classic Mayan astrology signs, dates, and meanings… along with a personal interpretation based on the symbolism known to each sign.



Ch’en: January 2nd to January 21st

Meaning: Black Storm, Black Sky, Moon, One Flower, West

Mayan Astrology Signs Interpretation: Those born in the Ch’en sign are people of the night. The hours past dusk and before the first light are power times for you. Tap into this time of quiet energy to develop yourself fully. You have a natural affinity for moon energies. Consider wearing moonstone to increase your connection with lunar energies. Your cardinal direction is the West and facing Westward during meditation can be very beneficial for you.


Yax: January 22nd to February 10th

Meaning: Green Storm, Venus, Two Flower, South

Mayan Astrology Interpretation: Those born in the Yax sign have an affinity for those born in the Yaxk’in sign. Venus is your ruling planet and by nature you are gentle and loving. Tap into your peace-keeping abilities to bring harmony to those around you. It is a great gift to be a peace-keeper in these times and you can do much good in the world. Your cardinal direction is the South.

Make sure to allow time for reflection in the early hours of the day because great wisdom can come to you during this time. Your cardinal direction is the north. The frog is a power animal for you. The meaning of frog is their adaptability and comfort with change. Frogs can make a quick and effortless jump from one stage of consciousness to the next.

Your cardinal direction is east and your totem animal is the gentle, noble “people” of the woods… deer.


Mak: March 23rd to April 11th

Meaning: Enclosed, Cover, God of Number 3

Mayan Zodiac Symbols Interpretation: Those born in the Mak sign are under one of the largest mysteries of the Mayan astrology signs. The meaning for your sign is less clearly defined than for any other. Mak is a mystery and that makes you a mystery as well. You do best when you keep some of yourself back from others. The words describing your sign are cover and enclosed, once again referring to something that is “under cover” or hidden away. Like the bear, spend time in reflection and meditation. If you allow yourself this personal time away from others you can discover the mysteries of existence. Your power number is 3, which has numerous references in symbolism throughout time. 3 is considered the number of divinity, balance and completion.


K’ank’in: April 12th to May 1st

Meaning: Earth, Dog, Yellow, Underworld, Yellow Sun

Mayan Astrology Signs Interpretation: Those born in the K’ank’in sign are people of the earth and the sun. You have an affinity for both the planet beneath your foot and for the strong solar energies of the sun. Spend time under the solar rays meditating for there is wisdom for you. Spend time as well in and on the earth. If possible, meditate in a cave, or at least visit a cave and experience the calm tranquility of being in the womb of the earth mother. Your totem animal is the dog, specifically the yellow dog. Dogs are well known for their loyalty, but a less known meaning of this animal totem is their incredible inner strength.


Muwan: May 2nd to May 21st

Meaning: Owl, Moan Bird, God of Rain and Clouds, Fire

Mayan Astrology Interpretation: Those born in the Muwan sign have an affinity for fire andwater. Embrace these two elements. Especially during thunderstorms when both fire and water are present in the forms of rain and lightning. Storms are power times for you. Your animal totem is the Owl, also known by Mayans as the moan bird. Owls have the ability of vision. They are seers who can detect the truth around them.


Pax: May 22nd to June 10th

Kumk’u: July 1st to July 20th

Mayan Astrology Signs Interpretation: Those born in the Kumk’u sign have a dualistic nature. Most likely you are often seeing opposite perspectives clearly and honoring the wisdom that both perspectives offer. Your animal totem is the crocodile. Crocodiles have the gift of survival, timing and patience. Crocodiles are one of only a few reptile species that survived past the Mesozoic period when most reptiles and dinosaurs went extinct.

Wayeb: July 21st to July 25th

Meaning: Unlucky Days, The Earth God, Specter, the Missing Days (short 5 day month)

Mayan Zodiac Symbols Interpretation: Those born in the Wayeb sign are the anomoly in the Mayan astrology signs. The Wayeb span of time is only 5 days out of the year, in contrast to the 20 day span that all of the other Mayan zodiac symbols have. During the Wayeb days, ancient Mayans felt the natural balance was affected. It was a time when other forces came into play, similar to the pagan concept of Samhain when ghosts walk the earth. Being born in this sign does not mean you are unlucky though. It means you likely have a strong connection to the other worlds and other realms. Embrace this. You have an affinity for extra-sensoryperception, esp, and walk between this world and the next.
