Is it Maya? Or Mayan … you decide
Death ~ Cimi (Yucatan) / Kame (Kiche)
Personality: Security-conscious, materialistic, self-sacrificing, and helpful. Curious about the community and politics.
You might be uncomfortable or even a little scared by the name of this sign. However, let me ease you by being direct. For the Mayas, the Death sign is one of the most fortunate. The Mayan mythology explains how the heroic twins became gods by transformation. Death is a process of spiritual transformation, and the natives of this sign have a natural capacity to go through this process with ease and excellence. This also means going through transformations in life with ease, which seems strenuous for most people. As some wise man has said, if you know how to die, you will know how to live.
Transformation is the key meaning of your life. You are a catalyst of change. You either transform yourself by internal or external force or love to help and facilitate someone else’s transformation. Sometimes, this can be about collective transformation, and you might find yourself facilitating transformations for your family members or colleagues.
We human beings experience birth, death, and sometimes psychological death, which are significant transformations in a figurative sense. Your purpose or talent is to help other individuals going through these challenging transformations.
You have a soft and feminine character and are intelligent, wise, and romantic. Your politeness attracts abundance like a magnet, and you manage to reach your goals. Your solid psychic abilities and emotional intelligence will bring success. You can become a respected and successful business person. You are well protected from accidents and sudden death. Your body will not easily host illnesses.
Naturally, subjects like death, life after death, and mysticism always interest you. Do not suppress this curiosity but get guidance from competent and trustworthy people, like those belonging to the Jaguar sign. Your continuous connections with your ancestors activate some of your psychic abilities, which you can use to help people. Talents like intuition and prophecy may emerge within you.
Galactic Tone ~ Patience
* Connection to others
* Soft blanket
* Direct connection
* Remaining strong
From 1 to 13 is a long journey of evolution, and at the station of Tone 9, we find the power of patience. It is almost at the 70% mark of the journey, where most marathon runners need to go through a particular shift in their minds to keep up the hard work.
Tone 9 brings you a broad perspective on life and issues. Therefore, you know how to be patient. Thanks to this energy, you maturely own your power. The 9-point allows for plans and projects to come into the last completion stage.
Knife ~ Etznab (Yucatan) / Tijax (Kiche)
Personality: Skillful, well-organized, and technical-oriented. Social, but has difficulty in intimate relationships. Conciliatory and self-sacrificing, but suppressing anger.
Mayans name this sign after the legendary Obsidian stone. Pointed and penetrative, also reflecting reality with its sharp surface. This stone has been a mirror for the Mayas for thousands of years. Mirror is another name for this sign; natives of this day are known for being a good mirror for people around them, potentially making this a challenging sign. Interestingly, Knife people are beautiful women or handsome men with sharp facial attributes.
When we look at the symbol of the Knife sign, we can see a duality separated by its razor-sharp edges. Being a Knife means having a competent perception of the dualities of life. As a Knife person, you tend to see the world as black and white or, more dramatically, good and evil. You can slice reality into perfectly accurate pieces and reveal what is true and what is not. Indeed, you have a deep passion for truthfulness in your heart.
Recognition of contrasts means seeing the world as an arena of conflict. Going into clashes like a warrior is something common in your life. You often find yourself choosing one reality over another. Such awareness is painful, making this sign a potentially difficult one to live with.
You are usually in a dilemma because of your way of speaking. Holding your tongue means keeping the truth to yourself, but you may lose some friends here and there when you are blunt with people.
Yes, in most situations, you give the bitter medicine for most people. Truth hurts, but it also heals. When we look at the plant medicines of the indigenous world, we usually see that they are bitter and not easy to digest, whether it is Ayahuasca, Peyote, or Kambo. The energy of this sign act in a similar way. Your bitter medicine can be very healing if people can swallow the truth pill.
If you suppress your honesty, you will lose all the potential from the Knife sign. You were born to express the truth as much as you know it. Remember, there is nothing wrong with that. But keep asking yourself, what is the more profound and ultimate reality?
Mayans say that the Knife people are healers, and this sign has curative qualities. A knife can be a weapon to kill, but it can also be an instrument of healing in the right way. Just like a scalpel in the hands of a surgeon, that is unlike a knife that injures people. Surgeons can discern what to cut out and what not to. They aim at the cancer cells, not the patients themselves.
Talking about surgeons, you can be a good one, a medical doctor, or a healer. You are excellent with technical subjects and may have a career in engineering or information technology. You can use your hands very well and achieve virtuosity with a musical instrument.
Even though you are generally fair and sensitive in intimate relationships, you may overreact and finish the relationship abruptly. If someone wants a long-term relationship with you, they will have to accept your dominant side.
When you find yourself too judgmental of other people, ask yourself, maybe you are bound by a dualistic and limited understanding of life? Gautama Buddha says, “There are two kinds of people. Ones moving from light to dark, and those moving from dark to light.” The science-fiction classic “Cloud Atlas” gives another perspective on this, in which being good and evil are interwoven into each other. We are all having our own unique stories. Remembering this will bring a feeling of lightness into your heart.
There are 20 Mayan signs, changing daily. The day you were born determines your Day Sign. It shows your typical attributes, your most dominant characteristics.
You have eight more signs surrounding the Day sign, each explaining a different aspect of your life. It is called a Tree of Life and consists of three columns and three lines.
The central column signs in the center make up the core of your being. They guide you, support and inspire you on your journey throughout life.
The female column signs influence your private life and intimate relationships. Not just the romantic relationships but also the family ties and relationships with the significant others.
The male signs influence your job, career, your power relationships. How you interact with the world and what you serve to the society at large.
There are three main stages in your life: Youth, Adolescent, and Maturity.
Which of these signs will influence you the most depend on your age. The dominant sign at each of the columns will change over the years.
