How to Calculate Mayan Astrology

Mayan Astrology has 260 total astrological types, which are formed from combinations of the 20 Mayan sun signs and the 13 Galactic Tones. The Tzolkin Mayan calendar system, also known as the Sacred Round, is based on the concept that the universe consists of cosmic energy which perpetually undulates in cycles. The process of converting a Gregorian calendar birth date into Mayan astrology is relatively simple, provided you have access to the chart that lists each astrological type.

    January: 0; February: 31; March: 59; April: 90; May: 120; June: 151; July: 181; August: 212; September: 243; October: 13; November: 44; December: 74

    Look up the year of your birth, and the corresponding number assigned to it. The years and numbers are:

  3. 3

    Add the numbers of the month, year, and day of your birth to arrive at your Mayan astrology number. If your Western birthday is April 23, 1960, you would add 90 for April, 112 for 1960, and 23 for the date of birth to come up with a grand total of 225. If the number of these three dates exceeds 260, subtract 260 from that number to arrive at the final number.

  4. 4

    Match your Mayan astrology number with a personality type. A person born on April 23, 1960 has a Mayan astrology type of a 'Red Self-Existing Serpent.' To find your particular name, you may either look up a full chart on websites such as allintheartoftiming.com/Mayan or purchase an iPhone app, such as at mayan-calendar.com, to look up your particular type.
