© 2019, My Mayan Sign

Today in Tzolkin Mayan Calendar System


The number 2 symbolizes the cosmic polarities which lie at the heart of Mesomarican philosophy. The day sign Aq’ab’al also signifies this polarity. The word itself means “darkness.” In K’iche’ Maya, the term “good night” is Xoq aq’ab’. But this sign is also the first light of dawn upon the horizon. It is the moment when darkness and light are equal. It is dusk and dawn, the equal night and day of the equinoxes, the “in between” times. We cannot come fully to the light until we have recognized and understood our own darkness. This is a time when we may easily “walk in between the worlds.”
