13 the Natural Order of Time in the Mayan Calendar

20130913-201416.jpg

Why does the number thirteen have such a negative superstitious connotation to it in todays society? Some societies and cultures see the number 13 as being lucky, and having special significance.

Anyone who has studied the Mayan calendar has seen the recurring numbers 13 and 20.

The number 13 is a very important time keeping natural number in the Maya culture.

The Mayan calendar consists of three main calendars that interlock, like gear cogs in a wheel that spin different ways.

HAAB
The Haab, the civil calendar is the solar or sun calendar of 365 days in a year.
18 months of 20 days each for this cycle.

TZOLKIN
The divine calendar, also known as the sacred round, that means division of days to keep track of time to perform ceremonies and celebrations.
Each day is numbered 1-13 and then repeated. The cycle runs
260-day calendar of 20 periods of 13 days.
The day is also given a name or glyph for 20 days.
The Mayan counting system is done by 20’s, instead of our 10 counting system.

THE LONG COUNT
The long count is used to track longer periods of time, that is why it is called the universal cycle.
Each sun cycle has 2,880, 000 about 7758 solar days.

There are 13 tones and 20 glyphs in the Mayan Calendar, each number tone has a meaning and description for the day. The glyphs in the cycle of 20 days have names for each day. Find out what your Mayan name is in the Mayan dreamspell calendar with your free Mayan reading.

A piece of the Mayan Calendar in Coba ruins Mexico, Yucatan peninsula.

The Lunar calendar cycle of the moon is 13 full moons, or moon cycles a year, so there should be 13 months instead of twelve months.That is why there is always a blue moon, or two moons in a month in the gregorian or Julian calendar year, which is the current ‘modern’ calendar system.

13 times 28 days in a month = equals 364, + plus one day celebrated out of time = equals 365 days in a year. The moon cycle, which is 13 moons of 28 days, matches the cycle of the tides. This is the natural time of a women’s cycle, and it is a more accurate way to keep time than current calendar systems.

There are more calendars that track the cycle of Venus and Sirius that have survived, but who knows what was destroyed during the bloody conquests from Conquistadors. Only three Maya codex books or codices have survived the intentional decimation.
If this is what has survived, then the pattern may have been that they had a calendar for each of the stars and planets in our solar system. The oldest known astronomical observatory is in Chichen Itza Mexico on the Yucatan peninsula.

Other times the number thirteen appears in Mayan time keeping is
13 times 4 = equals 52 weeks in a year.
This is celebrated by having four men on top of a pole swing upside down on a rope, circling 13 times, symbolizing offerings for the year.

I took this picture in Mexico, near Tulum Mayan ruins, of The ‘Voladores de Papantla,’ who are Totonac Indians who performed this act. The voladores rite is a traditional act of worship performed to the haunting sounds of drums and a flute. This is one of the first sights seen by invading foreigners.

The numbers 13 and 20 show up a lot in the Mayan calendar, and their time keeping vibration is 13:20.

The Mayan calendar is a more accurate time keeping system than the current Gregorian or Julian calendar. Some cultures and beliefs fear the number 13 and consider it unlucky, especially on Friday the 13th, but for the Maya people it is a number that signifies the natural order of the universe.
