Aztec and Maya Calendar
In the tonalpohualli, the sacred Aztec calendar, Thursday April 22, 1937 is:
(1 -) Quiahuitl (rain)
3 - Calli (house)
Lord of the Night
20 - Hueitecuilhuitl (VIII)
(Correlation: Alfonso Caso - Nicholson's veintena alignment [adjust])
The significance of this day
5-Calli is the name day of Macuilcalli, a patron god of the jewel workers.
Day Calli (House) is governed by Tepeyollotl, Heart of the Mountain, as its provider of tonalli (Shadow Soul) life energy. Calli is a good day for rest, tranquility and family life. Not a good day for participating in public life. Best spent cementing relationships of trust and mutual interests.
The thirteen day period (trecena) that starts with day 1-Quiahuitl (Rain) is ruled by Tlaloc, He Who Makes Things Sprout, god of rain, lightning and thunder. This trecena represents a time of alternating drought and flood. There is either not enough or too much. It is a time of hardship and suffering. The rainmaker stands alone atop the mountain, holding firesticks and a medicine bundle: help will be offered but may not be accepted. Some will have prepared for this time but not enough to care for everyone in need. These are good days to pursue solitude and learning; bad days to count on others.
Jack Nicholson was born on day 5-Calli.
La Malinche, or Doña Marina, was an Aztec woman who became an essential partner for Hernán Cortés in his conquest of the Aztec empire. Doña Marina's Aztec name was Malinalli, after her birthday. Cleary, she acted upon the significance of this day.
