The significance of this day
This is the third of the five unlucky days (nemontemi) at the end of a year (xihuitl). It is better not to carry out any activity during these unfortunate and useless days.
Day Miquiztli (Death) is governed by Tecciztecatl, the Moon God, as its provider of tonalli (Shadow Soul) life energy. It is a good day for reflecting on your priorities in life, a bad day for ignoring possibilities. It is a day of transformation, signifying that briefest moment between old endings and new beginnings.
The thirteen day period (trecena) that starts with day 1-Coatl (Snake) is ruled by Xiuhtecuhtli, Lord of the Year, the ancient god of fire who stands at the center. The 13 days of this trecena are governed by the forces that have created a power vacuum in the situation. The throne is empty and the rightful heir must struggle with all the pretenders who would claim it. These are 13 days of conflict, intrigues and unexpected developments. The throne will fall to the one who has laid the groundwork, built the alliances and is favored by the timing of events beyond any one person's control. This time will come again: those who are not prepared should bide their time; those who hold the throne should beware. These are good days to act out of strength, bad days to rely on the strength of others.
In the Mayan Long Count, the 13th b'ak'tun (144.000 day cycle) will start on the winter solstice of 2012 (December 21, 2012).
