The Effects of the Trecena Ruler on the Lord of the Day

A growing number of people doing Mayan astrology now consider the trecena ruler’s influence an important factor when interpreting the energy of a day sign for a date within that trecena. The interpretation is commonly accomplished by applying the core meaning of the trecena ruler’s nahual to the day sign of a specific day.

The trecena ruler of Jaguar, or Ix, marks 13 days of focus on the spiritual side of life.

For example, today is the first day of the trecena of Jaguar (Ix). Jaguar, whose core meaning is inner strength, is the nahual most likely to achieve the highest realms of spirituality. The second day of a Jaguar trecena is 2 Eagle, a nahual that can mean flying high either on the physical plane (especially regarding money and business) or on the spiritual plane. Jaguar, as trecena ruler, tells us that on this day we should focus on spiritual ascent rather than asking Eagle for money and work. Apply this concept when considering the meaning of the following day signs in the trecena.

The Trecena of Jaguar (Ix)

September 16: 1 Jaguar
September 17: 2 Eagle
September 18: 3 Vulture
September 19: 4 Earth
September 20: 5 Knife
September 21: 6 Storm
September 22: 7 Sun
September 23: 8 Crocodile
September 24: 9 Wind
September 25: 10 Night
September 26: 11 Net/Rabbit
September 27: 12 Snake
September 28: 13 Death

Correspondences between Your Day Signs and the Trecena

Another way to use the trecena is to look for correspondences between your Mayan astrological chart (either the Constellation or Cross of Life) and the day signs in the trecena. For example, if your main day sign is 9 Wind, then pay close attention on September 24, when you may receive a personal message or insight, or which might be a good day to schedule a related activity. Also look for your main day sign’s opposite nahual in the above list. (See my previous post to learn your opposite Mayan day sign, an important concept in New Paradigm Mayan Astrology.)

Also note the coefficients of each day sign during the trecena. If your main day sign is 12 (any nahual), then September 27, which is 12 Snake, may prove to be a significant time.

Mayan Composite Astrology and the Trecena Ruler

The influence of the trecena ruler on the days within its trecena can also be interpreted with a tool from New Paradigm Astrology, composite nahuales. I will explain how this works in my next post.
