By combining the day sign of a specific date, often called the Lord of the Day, with that of the trecena ruler, a composite day sign can provide further guidance on how to deal with the day’s energy. This is an advanced technique of New Paradigm Mayan Astrology.
The Trecena of Sun
A Sun trecena can be unusually intense, as Sun illuminates and brings things into the light. This is true for any day ruled by Sun. However, the effect is even stronger during this trecena because Sun combined with any other nahual results in the other nahual. For example, Sun plus Snake leads to Snake as the double composite. This is useful from analyzing relationships as well as many other things. Sun is the only nahual whose composite with another nahual is the other nahual.
Another effect of double composites during a Sun trecena is that the nahuales are in their purest form throughout the 260 days of the Sacred Calendar, or tzolkin.
Triple Composite Day Signs
Due to this unique property of Sun, there is no need to create a triple composite that factors in your day sign. The triple day sign will have the same nahual as the double day sign; only the coefficient changes, unless a nahual is combined with 13 Sun, which adds up to the precise day sign of the other person or date.

How to Interpret Double Composite Day Signs in Mayan Astrology
Look for your nahual in the third column. If a double composite that is your nahual occurs, pay close attention to that date. My previous posts on other trecenas provide more ways to interpret double and triple composite day signs.
Two dates stand out during this trecena. The first day, 1 Sun, combines with the trecena ruler, 1 Sun, leading to the double composite of 2 Sun. This might prove significant on a global basis, because according to the Grand Wayeb, the current Year Bearer is 2 Sun. So watch for major international events and incidents throughout this trecena.
Sun could shed light on what happened to North Korean Dictator for Life, Kim Jong Un, who has not been seen in more than a month. This possibility is underscored by another meaning of Sun, which is ruler and authority. And the current Year Bearer, 2 Sun, is a double composite.
11 Dog on October 22 might also see negative events, as 11 can mean chaos and Dog is often a troublesome nahual on its own. The preceding day’s sign, 10 Water, might also indicate problems.
