Mayan Horoscopes and Astrology

Mayan astrology uses charts called the Tree of Life and the Constellation, not the horoscopes used by Western astrology. So if it’s Mayan Horoscopes you’re looking for, you should look for  Mayan astrology or the tzolkin on your favorite search engine.

The term Mayan horoscopes does not even make sense when it comes to practicing Mayan astrology. The word “horoscope” is derived from the Greek word “horoskopos,” which means “a look at the hours.” And the word Horus means “falcon,” not hour as many people have been led to believe.

While Western astrology uses horoscopes that focus on the time, Mayan astrology does not consider a person’s time of birth a factor unless born between sunset and midnight. Some Mayan day keepers in Guatemala do use the station of the sun as a factor in a reading, but not all.
