Maya Mystery School
of Northern California
The Mayan civilization flourished for over a thousand years (200 B.C. to A.D.900), but the ancient Maya understood time in a way that is totally different from any other culture. They knew that time was not linear, but instead, a series of ever-repeating cycles. When one cycle ended, another began.
Just as western civilization contemplates its past and hopes for the future on the new year beginning January 1st, the ancient Maya regularly considered their history as well as their future potential on the important days of their calendars. They believed that any particular holiday was an actual reiteration of the essential events that had already happened, continue to happen, and would always happen on those sacred days.
Instead of counting just the fingers for a numerical system based on ten, the Maya believed in a system that was based on both the fingers and toes, a numerical base that consisted of the number twenty. For the Maya, numerous Gods manifested through nature and were active every single day. The pattern of their actions and interactions affected and were effected by the shape of sacred time and space. Thus, the twenty solar glyphs of the Mayan calendars have several levels of meaning based on the actions and interactions of the Gods.
One of these levels has to do with the twenty steps of the soul, moving from creation to enlightenment. The Mayans believe that each of us must attain the wisdom of the twenty steps before we are fully God-realized. Our free will creates the specific solar glyph that we choose for a particular lifetime. This choice had to do with a specific goal in relation to our life’s purpose, or our soul's desire to focus on its spiritual development.
The Mayan Calendar symbols are for everyone interested in finding their path. The symbols are universal in nature and transcend third-dimensional time. The goal is to become one with the galactic mind. In Lakech, Marta Chiappetti.
Note: Astrology readings and forecasts are based on the Mayan Dreamspell Calendar, which is composed of 13 months of 28 days. This calendar relies on the symbols and numbers used throughout the other Mayan calendars.
