The Mayan Zodiac is based off an ancient and complex calendar system created by the Mayan people more than 5,000 years ago in Mexico and Central America.

Often regarded as one of the first and most complex calendar systems, the Mayan calendar also contains a zodiac table of 18 symbols: Ch'en, Yax, Sac, Keh, Mak, K'ank'in, Muwan, Pax, Kayab, Kumk'u, Wayeb, Pop, Wo, Sip, Sotz, Sec, Xul, Yaxk'in and Mol. These symbols are based on birth date and offer insight on personality and character traits of those born under each of the 19 signs.
