Mayan Astrology & Zodiac Sings: The Falcon (Hawk)
As great connoisseurs of the astrological discipline, Maya came to their horoscope which consists of 13 signs that correspond to the same number of animals. The Maya civilization, as it is known, was developed in the Central America, in a territory that includes part of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras.
Their civilization appears since 2000 BC, when the first civilization formations began about 300 years B.C. Maya had developed a writing system and a calculation one which were based on two calendars: the civil (Haab) and the ritual (Tzolkin). In fact the Maya used the two calendars at the same time, as it were a single one.
Besides these two main methods of calculating time, there was also the lunar year, consisting of 13 months of 28 days each, called the scientific year, or code of Paris, as it was discovered in Paris about 800 years ago.
