20-day MONTH

The 20-day mayan MONTH and their keywords for each day.

There are 10,000 levels of consciousness on Earth, clinically proven, in which to perceive what the meaning of the 20 daysigns are.

And it has been proven at the US Supreme Court recently that ANY word has at least 900 definitions. So context and- ontent matter.

 Keep that in mind as we review the 20 daysigns and their key words, grouped into 5 sets of four symbols, with medicine hoop directions and market days/season days identified.

The 20 Mayan daysign names are known. Other ther key words to help explain them are subjective.

There are disagreements about symbol names and meanings even among the present day Maya in different towns and regions.  So while we generally know the basic Maya names for the 20 daysigns, their 'inner meanings' and usage is also one of personal understanding, as it should be.

Feel free to explore your own personal interpretations and revelations, as I did.  That is when the real knowledge begins. 

The-late DR. DAVID R. HAWKINS liked to point out in his books that, "A thing IS what it is, that IS its meaning."

In the ancient Mayan codice-books the 20 day signs are grouped together into four sets.

The four sets of daysigns are grouped by color around the four sides of the inner ring by-order of the 13-day weeks as they occur on the calendar,

The four Year-Bearer daysigns are:  Skywalker, Mirror, Night, Star.

As seen on the Aztec Calemdar Stone inner ring below, the four Year-Bearer daysigns are identified by the smaller triangular "gateways" above them; kind of like the points of a compass layout: NE, NW, SE, SW.




At the top of the Aztec Calendar Stone layout above, the inner circle of the 20 daysigns using the Mayan names for the symbols  is one of the four larger triangular 'gates' above the last daysign LORD ajaw and the first daysign WATER LILY CREATURE imix.

The SUN lord gives birth to all creation DRAGON  creatures.

Descending down to the left is the smaller triangular 'GATE-way' of the South-West above NIGHT 'pointing' up..

The sunset 'Fall' WEST GATE-keeper is the SERPENT, and after sunset WORLDBRIDGER(death) dream.

The North-West GATE-way is 'pointing' down from the STAR.

The 'Winter' rest 'pointing' down mid-night NORTH GATE-keeper is the DOG, and with MONKE begins to rise again.

Rising spring 'pointing' down under the North-East GATEway is the REED with kundalini rising.

The sunrise full 'Spring' EAST GATE-keeper is the EAGLE, with WARRIOR guardian angel rising up.

The morning South-East GATE way rises above the thunder MIRRORto Light the fire.

Once again at the top mid-day 'Summer' South GATE-keeper is the SUN lord to re-birth all creation DRAGON creatures.

From DRAGON ceature to SUN lord, every 20 days.

The 20 daysigns follow a four-day color pattern in-order on the calendar: red, white, blue and yellow.

       The red daysigns initiate each four-day cycle. 

       The white daysigns shape what was initiated.

       The blue daysigns multiply what was shaped.

        And the yellow daysigns ripen what was multiplied.


So, each of the daysigns have relationships by COLOR. 

When we scan the 20-day Month chart: the red daysigns all cross-reference each other; the white daysigns all cross-reference each other; the blue daysigns all cross-reference each other; and the yellow daysigns all cross-reference each other.
