    The great civilizations in the history of humanity have been built, each in their own way, different ways of conceiving the world, a worldview, which in many cases had large number of points in common, even among peoples that had never been seen, or separated in history by millennia of difference. One of these coincidences, a common thread that can be drawn from the comparison of different cultures is the existence of some form of divination, the attempt to create a channel between the men and the message of the destination. And the Mayans were exempt from this. The Mayans were excellent astronomers and mathematicians, sine qua non to become great astrologers. Astrology, is rightly based on complex mathematical calculations, trying to give a meaning to the relative position of the stars in the sky, and establish a relationship between them and the person’s fate. Ever we heard it said that destiny is written in the stars. For the Mayans, this was completely true, as the sun rises each tomorrow. The Mayan calendar was a solar calendar, i.e.

    based on the relative position of the Sun in the firmament. It was highly complex, and three calendars brought forward simultaneously. The closest thing to the Gregorian calendar, which preserved up to our days, was the Civil calendar of 365 days. Then this town recorded a calendar sacred, of 260 days and the long count, or a way of measuring time with reference to the terrestrial history. For the Mayans, time complies cycles, cycles that recur.

    All we have heard that 2012 seems to be a special year for the history of the world. The reason for this is that account long Maya, 2012 seems to mark the end of a great cycle. Some have interpreted it as the end of the world, however, reading the documents left by the Mayans, with rigor would be the end of a great global cycle, which vaticinaria major changes. The Mayan horoscope is composed of thirteen signs. Each sign lasted 28 days, i.e., the same as a lunation. This is the bat, the Scorpion, deer, owl, Peacock, lizard, monkey, Hawk, Jaguar, dog, snake, Hare and the turtle. Entering Tarot friend, it will be possible to find a section dedicated entirely to the Mayan horoscope. It is convenient to know it, because this culture surprises us every day with its rich culture, and its philosophical position towards life and the events of the world.
