1 - Night (Akbal)

Dear Mayan Majix Friends,

Tzolkin Count of Days


Tzolkin Trecena Notes – 1 Akbal (Night/Hearth)

Day 183 of the 260 Day Tzolkin

November 25, 2010

Year Bearer:  11 Manik


Trecenas are thirteen-day periods in the Tzolkin. Each Trecena starts with the Number 1, but with a
different Day Glyph. As a wave of the Thirteen Heavens, the underlying energy is governed by the
First Day Glyph of the Trecena and influences all thirteen successive Day Glyphs. Being aware of the
predominant energy of the First Day of the Trecena, we can align our intentions with that energy
and allow our goals to manifest.


This Trecena starts with 1 Akbal (Night/Hearth) – Introspective Dreamtime, Darkness, Stillness,
Sanctuary, Temple , Travel the Void Within to Birth New Ideas, Travel the Underworld in Search of


Carlos Barrios in The Book of Destiny states “This glyph signifies the owl and represents light and
dark at the same time. The two circumferences at the top represent the energy of creation, and the
dots below represent receptive energy.”

The Popol Vuh (Maya creation legend) relates the story of the Hero Twins (two brothers) who
travel to the Underworld where they are challenged by the Lords of Darkness to a game of handball.
They spend several nights in different houses of the Underworld facing and conquering magical tests.
They eventually win the handball game, but due to trickery of the Lords of Death, they are ritually
slain - only to return to life again. In Jaguar Wisdom, Kenneth Johnson explains:  “Thus, with this
legend, the House of Darkness is the place where we face the perils of the soul, our personal
netherworld where the ego dies only to be reborn in different form.” The day sign Akbal symbolizes
the Underworld or House of Darkness.


Another Maya name for this sign was Utoan, meaning heart. The Aztec deity associated with Akbal
was Tepeyollotl “Heart of the Mountain.” This deity was the Guardian of Caves and was also
known as the Earth Father or Lord of Animals. His voice of thunder echoing in the caves and
mountains was associated with drums. Akbal is also known as the Guardian of Dawn and the
Guardian of Dusk, the magical transition periods when darkness becomes daylight and daylight
becomes darkness.


Another representation of the Trecena is that of a creative wave beginning at 1 and ending at 13,
with the numbers 6, 7 and 8 representing the crest of the wave. The crest could be interpreted as
a strong influential energy, although the underlying influence on the Trecena would still rest in the
beginning. In this Trecena, the crest falls on 6 Lamat (Rabbit/Venus), 7 Muluc (Water) and
8 Oc (Dog).Lamat is also known as Venus which symbolically represents the cycle of death
and rebirth to the Maya. Venus shines as the evening star, disappears and then reappears as the
morning star. Mulucrepresents water as a sacred natural force giving life or taking it away. Oc
is the energy of Dog, faithful companion who carries the torch lighting the pathway through the Underworld. As we search for inner wisdom, know that the fire of faith guides us through the
darkness in order to rebirth our souls into the light.

Utilize the energy of Akbal to introspectively travel to your House of Darkness. Seek your wisdom
and rebirth your soul in order to continue your growth in consciousness on the Road of Life.

calendar and its upcoming so called end. Professor Mark van Stone has however now written a book on the topic, compiling
all ancient Mayan sources regarding our own time: 2012 - Science and Prophecy of the ancient Maya, which may allow us to
separate the modern urban legends about the Maya from what the old sources are actually saying." click here
