Composite Mayan Astrology for the Trecena of Jaguar (Ix)

Composite Mayan astrology, a standard tool of New Paradigm Mayan Astrology, provides another way to interpret the influence of the trecena ruler on days within its trecena. This is accomplished by combining the two day signs, 1 Jaguar and today’s day sign, 3 Vulture, to create a “double composite,” a day sign that represents their joint energies.

Today’s double composite day sign is 4 Dog. Consider the core meanings of Dog (guidance and authority) along with those of Vulture when assessing the energy of the day and how best to deal with it. The double composite may also show the best way to approach the energy and corresponding actions of the day sign of a date.

Double composites are most often used for relationship charts but have many other applications, such as scheduling activities and for political astrology. I will explain this concept in my next post.

The Trecena of Jaguar (Ix)

This table shows the day sign of each day in the current trecena of Jaguar (Ix) in September 2014.

Date Day Sign Double Composite Day Sign
September 16 1 Jaguar 2 Seed
September 17 2 Eagle 3 Water
September 18 3 Vulture 4 Dog
September 19 4 Earth 5 Monkey
September 20 5 Knife 6 Road
September 21 6 Storm 7 Corn
September 22 7 Sun 8 Jaguar
September 23 8 Crocodile 9 Eagle
September 24 9 Wind 10 Vulture/Owl
September 25 10 Night 11 Earth
September 26 11 Net/Rabbit 12 Knife
September 27 12 Snake 13 Storm
September 28 13 Death 1 Sun

Interpreting a Double Composite

Suppose a person wants to schedule a sales presentation. Eagle days are the best suited for business and money matter, but the meeting cannot be after September 17, which is the Eagle day of this trecena. So you look through the right column and find that September 23 is a double composite 9 Eagle, which is an even better day for business.

Also watch for double composites whose coefficient matches your own. All 5 days are worthy of special attention to all people who are 5 Sun, or any other nahual,

Triple Composite Mayan Day Signs

For the most important activities, you should do a triple composite by combining a double composite of the trecena ruler and a specific date’s day sign with your own day sign. Ideally, all three – the day sign of the date, the double composite, and the triple composite will all be favorable for the action in mind.

Composite Day Signs and Correspondences

Another way to use double or triple composites is to look for correspondences between them and your main day sign. If your main sign is 8 Sun, then October 5 is a day to pay close attention, as this correspondence on a double composite day could be a personal signal.

I’ll discuss triple composites in more detail when I post the double and triple composites for our next trecena, that of 1 Deer, which commences September 29.

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

(To see the meaning of these days signs, and those of the next trecena, Deer, see: Interactive Monthly Mayan Calendar.)

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.
