4 Ahau since December 21, 2012, the so-called end of the Mayan Long Count calendar. Since Ahau, called Ajpu in Guatemala represents the deity Ajaw, this nahual marks both the beginning and the end, for that is the true meaning of Ajaw in terms of time.
If you view the 20 nahuales as a belt, then Ahau is the buckle. It’s the nahual that connects the rest of them.
What is the meaning of 4 Ahau? 4 means balance, and Ahau means illumination, nourishing and authority. But in today’s context, 4 Ahau signifies the end of the second 260-day cycle since December 21, 2012, and the beginning of the third Sacred Calendar cycle. Whatever energies kicked in 520 days ago will echo will echo around the world today as we resonate with the Galactic Alignment that occurred then. In other words, we’ve advanced one more level in the rise of global consciousness, and doing so in the Haab ruled by 2 Sun, making this an even more signifigant step on the new path of life.
