    Your Guide: Using the Uinal Wheels

    Let me explain how to use the circular month calendars

    provided here for the 7 wind year.

    It is very simple to learn to track the tzolkin/haab calendar,

    yet the understanding of its profound meaning grows with continued use.

    Each 20-day wheel represents a 20-day haab month.

    The term for "month" in Yucatec Maya is "uinal" (wee-noll),

    thus I call these circular month charts "Uinal Wheels."

    The Quiché year 7 Wind begins on February 26th, 1993.

    Because the year bearer for '93 is 7 Wind,

    each haab month begins at the top on the day Wind.

    The period of time covered in our Gregorian Calendar

    is given near each uinal wheel.

    Space is allotted for notes and observations.

    The tzolkin number is
    given below the day-sign glyph

    by way of the "dot and bar" system of the ancient Maya.

    This combination of dot, bar and glyph is how tzolkin dates
    are recorded in the archeological inscriptions one finds
    among the many ruins of Guatemala.

    The concept is simple: a bar equals 5 and a dot equals one.

    For example, 7, 11, and 2 are written:
    All 13 numbers are represented in this way.

    Counting clockwise from Wind, we can track the sequence
    of sacred tzolkin dates as they correspond with our Gregorian system.

    The ancient Maya are also credited with discovering the concept of zero
    independently of Old World mathematicians.

    It was represented with a stylized shell:

    The inner wheel gives the name of the haab month represented,
    and the day of the haab follows below each tzolkin date.

    So these month wheels provide the tzolkin/haab designation
    for each day in the 7 Wind year, Feb. 26th 1993 to Feb 25th 1994.

    Using the first uinal of the 7 Wind year, which is portrayed
    on the front cover of this book, we find that the name of this haab month
    is Nabe Mam, or First Lord.

    It runs from Feb 26th to March 17th,
    and begins at the top with the year bearer, 7 Wind.

    Counting around the wheel we find that March 3rd occurs
    on 12 Deer 6 First Lord, and March 14th occurs on 10 Knife 17 First Lord.

    Since this booklet is to be made available on January 1st, 1993,

    I have included two uinal wheels for the time period
    just prior to the 7 Wind year.

    This allows the reader to begin tracking the tzolkin/haab
    with the last two uinals of the 6 Quake year,
    as of January 12th, 1993 (1 Quake 1 Fire).
    A list is provided here to compare Quiché month names
    with the better known Yucatec Maya month names:
    Quiché: / Yucatec:

    First Lord Kayab / Turtle
    Second Lord Cumhu / Dark
    Soft Earth Pop / Mat
    Second Soft Earth Uo / Frog
    First Moss Zip / Stag
    Second Moss Zotz / Bat
    Tender Shoots Zec / Skull
    Bird Days Xul / End
    Red Clouds Yaxkin / Green Days
    Jaguar Mol / Gather
    First Flower Chen / Well
    Second Flower Yax / Green
    Third Flower Sac / White
    Trees Ceh / Deer
    Flaying Mac / Cover
    Painted Mat Kankin / Yellow Days
    Fire Muan / Owl
    Arrow Pax / Drum
    The Gregorian calendar is given a secondary place
    in these calendars for a reason

    . In a sense, the Mayan haab

    and the Gregorian year serve the same purpose.

    They both refer to the civil or secular count of days

    - the obvious yearly cycle of the earth around the sun.

    The Maya preserved a 365-day approximation of the year,
    even after they realized a more accurate method for tracking
    the true solar year.

    They did an amazing thing by combining the haab count

    with a sacred count, the tzolkin,
    which symbolizes the mysterious inner dimension of reality.

    In this way, the two aspects of human experience,

    the sacred and the secular,
    the inner realm and the outer realm, are synthesized
    into one comprehensive cosmo-conception.

    The world view which thus follows is a complete acknowledgement
    of spirit in matter; one in which the processes
    of the microcosm and macrocosm mirror each other.

    By comparison, the Gregorian system,

    though mathematically more accurate,
    provides only a lifeless cosmos of clockwork drudgery,
    an endless ticking of the minutes, hours and days.

    The Maya recognized that our sense of time defines
    the depth of experience of a culture,
    and then endeavored to model the fantastic nature
    of the multidimensional cosmos that they perceived around them.

    If the tzolkin/haab becomes our primary time reference,

    only secondarily related to the Gregorian system (as a convenience),
    we may begin to embrace a more complete
    and mature attitude towards life on earth.

    Uinal Wheels

    Uinal Wheels designed for the 7 Wind book.
    The Uinal Wheels used in the 1993 "7 Wind" calendar are now,
    of course, out of date.




    An example of my design is found on the front cover of the book

    A close-up view of the "extra day" month or Vayeb that ended the Quiché 7 Wind year

    III - Implications

    A lot of the deeper implications of Mayan time philosophy

    have already been addressed.

    I would like to mention a few additional ideas,

    which suggest even more incredible properties.

    Many of these qualities relate to the sacred/secular theme spoken

    of elsewhere.

    A graphic illustration of this involves Venus.

    The Venus Round Calendar
    The cycles of tzolkin, haab and Venus mesh

    in such a way that all three synchronize every 2 Calendar Rounds.

    This period of 104 haab is called a Venus Round.

    The math:
    146 x 260 = 104 x 365 = 65 x 584 = 37,960 days
    Thus, the sacred/secular framework of the tzolkin and haab
    serve to mythologically and mathematically structure
    the observed cycle of Venus.

    And we've already discussed the relationship of the 260-day cycle

    to human gestation, as well as to the growing period of corn.

    In addition to this, Venus's visibility as morningstar approximately equals 260 days.

    We have here a Venus-corn-gestation partnership

    - a thread which ties together three different levels.

    Now here's the clincher
    • In the Quiché Popol Vuh, humans are said to be made out of corn dough!
    • On a tree of life carving at Palenque, corn stalks bloom with human faces.
    • One can see both sacred and secular concerns addressed in these ideas
    • - united via the tzolkin.
    • This multi-tiered interweaving mythology never fails to arose
    • ones curiosity and admiration
    • - the Maya were surely adept visionaries and myth-makers.

      The entire Venus Round Calendar i
    • s based upon the fact that 8 years = 5 Venus cycles.
    • This means that Venus traces a five-pointed star
    • around the zodiac over a period of 8 years.
    • The ancient Sumerians also recognized this,
    • and the infamous pentagram probably has its roots in this profound truth.
    • The 8:5 ratio relates to music theory
    • and is the doorway through to the greater mystery of the Sacred Calendar.

    Fractal harmonics is removed from the realm of abstract theory
    and is recognized as an inherent ordering principle of the cosmos.

    In essence, many of the sacred Mayan numbers and ratios,

    as well as Mayan philosophy, point to the Golden Proportion
    as one source of the Sacred Calendar's incredible properties.

    The Golden Proportion is a unique ratio,
    explored by the ancient Greeks,
    and is the mathematical source for the spirals
    which manifest in seashells, pine cones,
    and other natural phenomena.

    It was known as PHI ( = 1.618),

    and was thought to represent the essential principles
    of fractal growth and harmonic resonance.

    Incredibly, the ratios 8/5 and 20/13

    both approximate the Golden Proportion;

    PHI plays a key role in the numerical

    and philosophical dynamics of the tzolkin!

    As the mathematical center of the Sacred Calendar,
    it informs all levels of the Calendar's meanings
    • from human gestation up to planetary cycles.
    • For more information on this,
    • I would refer the interested reader to my recent book Tzolkin:
    • Visionary Perspectives and Calendar Studies, available from Four Ahau Press.

    Hunab K'u
    The sacred day on which all of these cycles synchronize is 1 Ahau, which is known as the Sacred Day of Venus. This day-sign has been the subject of much myth and ceremony throughout Mayan history. The linguistic transformations are intriguing:
    One Ahau
    Hun Ahau
    Hunab K'u
    Ahau is pronounced "Ah-how." Hun is the Mayan word for one. Hunahpu is one of the hero twins in the Popol Vuh, who at the end of the story becomes the sun. The meanings of the day-sign Ahau are many: Lord, Sun, Flower, Marksman or Blowgunner. Hunab K'u, ultimately derived from One Ahau, is the highest Mayan God. As source and creatrix, this god/goddess above dualities is said to be "The One Giver of Movement and Measure."

    As far as beginnings go, Hunab K'u refers to a larger perspective than One Ahau, perhaps even to the Galactic Center - our cosmic origins. But even One Ahau, as the "launching off point" for tzolkin, haab and Venus, retains a similar function as "giver of movement and measure."

    Hunab K'u
    As an aside, Hunab K'u is a Yucatec Maya term.

    The Quiché term for this same god is Hura C'an,

    from which is derived the english word hurricane.

    In the above depiction,

    Hunab K'u is conceived as a swirling cauldron of the cosmic dualities
    • and reminds us of the oriental yin-yang symbol.
    • It symbolizes the many levels of the sacred/secular duality
    • we have been discussing
    • - male/female, lunar/solar, subjective/objective, mind/body, spirit/matter,
    • and so on.

    And we should remember that in keeping with
    what we know about Mayan time,
    this duality is one of mutual involvement and complimentarity,
    not irreconcilable opposition.

    Furthermore, a principle of unfolding or flowering

    is inherent in time; movement and measure beget expansion.

    The cosmic conflict of yin and yang thus engender the natural processes

    of change and growth which surround us, and of which we are a part.

    And this is a critical quality of spiral time: growth.

    For all of its seeming abstractness,

    Mayan cosmology is extremely organic.

    In fact, Mayan philosophy may be likened

    to the spiral unfolding that we see in seashells, pine cones and flowers
    • analogies drawn from nature.
    • And Mayan earth worship - prayers to Tiox and Mundo
    • - acknowledge this profound principle;
    • that the earth is a living being, struggling through eons
    • to bring forth the exquisite flower of spiritual awareness.

    So without further tracing the journey
    by which I say what I say, let me try to state things simply:

    The Sacred Calendar is a cosmological model

    which unites inner and outer reality
    and explains the earth's inherent goal of physical
    and spiritual unfolding.

    Yet this is not the end-all. Is there ever one?

    Going further, here is a hint of what lies hidden beyond the veil:

    Imagine a comprehensive cosmology of numbers
    which unites the workings of both the material and spiritual realms.

    Imagine it to be based upon the ancient systems
    of the I Ching and the Golden Proportion.

    Furthermore, imagine this brilliant philosophy
    as a revival and completion of Kepler's obsession
    with a "harmony of the heavens" based on the five Platonic Solids.

    You have just imagined the Mesoamerican Sacred Calendar.
    And what does Hunab K'u have to do with all this?

    Well, everything.

    How can I restate this progressive and ancient understanding

    of the cosmos which is embedded in the Sacred Calendar...

    The time sense implied in the tzolkin is rooted in natural cycles.

    In essence, this truth involves a seeming paradox,

    for what "natural" cycle does the tzolkin correspond to?

    Answer: the human gestation period.

    In turn, the tzolkin is then used as a key factor

    in the amazing calendar of the Maya;
    the organic gestation cycle is used as a calendric constant
    to structure the celestial cycles of the planets, sun, and stars.

    In other words, the cycles of humanity are linked
    with the cycles of the planets -

    not in the cause-and-effect sense
    • but by virtue of a more mysterious principle of correspondence.
    • The relationship is of a type of mirroring, an unconnected
    • and distant affinity because both realms are unfolding
    • with the same rhythm!


    Because mind and world, spirit and matter, t

    he objective and subjective realms,
    are spun off from the same moment of creation.

    Call it Galactic Center, the Big Bang, God - whatever.

    In Mayan terms, this source is none other than Hunab K'u

    - Giver of Movement and Measure.

    Mayan time conception is more sophisticated

    than the one presently in vogue among the "western" cultures.

    It involves an approach or attitude of mutual involvement,

    overlapping inclusion, and adaptable pro-active problem solving,
    rather than "taking a stand", "sticking to our guns,"
    or "peace through strength."

    The Maya enjoy a world-view free from the entrapments
    of dualistic thinking.

    And while this may sound hyperbolic or grandiose,

    we have only to look carefully at the shrouded traditions
    and ceremonies of the present day Quiché Maya.

    Still tenuously holding onto ageless traditions

    amidst continuous onslaughts from the outside "civilized" world,
    they may very well hold the secrets of a more mature perspective
    • one which may transform the world.
    • How can we learn to perceive time and experience life
    • in this seemingly more evolved way?
    • Can we?

    I feel that we can, and learning to track the tzolkin/haab calendar is a start
    • a doorway to that realm beyond dualities
    • - where humanity meets and participates with the Great Spirit . . .
    Great Mystery.

    Method for Calculating Tzolkin Dates

    from Alignment2012 Website

    With this simple table, one can easily calculate
    the tzolkin designation for any Julian or Gregorian date
    for some 8000 years, 3114 B.C to 4800 A.D.

    1) Add up the century year, year and month numbers
    for the date you wish to convert to the tzolkin,
    using tables a, b and c.
    Then add the day of your birth.

    1) In table c, the months marked (B)
    should be used if your year is a leap year
    (see “The Julian and Gregorian Calendars”
    in Chapter Two for an explanation).

    2) Negative years should be divided
    in such a way that the last two figures are positive
    (e.g., -464 becomes -500 and +36.
    Table a is consulted for -500
    and Table b is consulted for 36).

    3) In Table a, two values are given for 1500,
    one for the Julian calendar (J)
    and one for the Gregorian (G).

    You now have a number that indicates
    the number of days elapsed
    since August 11th, 3114 B.C. Long Count

    This number is called the Mayan Day Number, or M.D.N.

    2) To find the number coefficient
    of your tzolkin date, divide your M.D.N. by 13.

    Multiply the decimal remainder by 13
    to arrive at a whole number remainder.

    Take this remainder and count forward
    beginning with the number 5,
    using base 13 (13 is followed by 1).

    For example, if your remainder was
    12: 4 + 12 = 16; 16 - 13 = 3. 3 is the number coefficient
    of your date.

    Next, to find your day-sign, divide that same M.D.N. by 20
    and figure the whole number remainder
    (this can be easily done since the multiples of 20 are obvious).

    Take that remainder and count off the consecutive day-signs,
    beginning with Imix.
    Here is a day-sign list:

    1) Imix 6) Cimi 11) Chuen 16) Cib
    2) Ik 7) Manik 12) Eb 17) Caban
    3) Akbal 8) Lamat 13) Ben 18) Eznab
    4) Kan 9) Muluc 14) Ix 19) Cauac
    5) Chicchan 10) Oc 15) Men 20) Ahau

    Together with the number coefficient previously arrived at,
    this is the universal Sacred Calendar Day for your date.

    Considering the potential difficulties
    in calculating tzolkin conversions for western dates,
    this is an extremely simple method.

    3) To find the haab date, divide the same M.D.N by 365.

    Multiply the decimal remainder by 365
    to arrive at a whole number remainder.

    Count of haab days with this number,
    beginning with 9 Cumhu.

    Since we are figuring from the base date
    4 Ahau 8 Cumhu, and 0 counting was used
    in designating the first haab day as 8 Cumhu
    in the Tikal system,

    you will need to count the haab month days from 0 - 19.

    Consult the haab month-name list in Chapter Two
    if necessary.

    Consult Chapter Four to convert any Tikal haab date
    to the Quiché haab.

    4) Long Count dates can also be calculated,
    using the same M.D.N. arrived at in Step 1.

    The process is almost self-explanatory.

    Divide accordingly:
    • 1st Long Count place value = Baktuns of 144,000 days
    • 2nd Long Count place value = Katuns of 7200 days
    • 3rd Long Count place value = Tuns of 360 days
    • 4th Long Count place value = Uinals of 20 days
    • 5th Long Count place value = Kin (days remaining)

    Example: M.D.N. = 1,803,296 (5 Cib):
    1,803,296 = 12 baktuns, 10 katuns, 9 tuns, 2 uinals
    and 16 kin or days.


    In the event that you are converting
    archeological Long Count dates to Western dates,
    the process is reversed.

    First, add up the place values of your Long Count date
    to arrive at a M.D.N.

    Then, add 584283 to this number
    to find the Julian Day Number of your date.

    You will need to consult some kind of table
    to discover which Gregorian or Julian date
    corresponds with that J.D.N.

    Converting tzolkin/haab dates to Western dates
    is a bit more tricky, since any tzolkin/haab date repeats every 52 haab.

    You would need to know the general time frame of your date.
