The Mayan Calendar is regarded as one of the oldest and most important of the calendar systems. The Ancient Mayan calendar uses a count of 260 days. It gives each day a name, much like our days of the week. There are 20 day names, each represented by a unique symbol.
The days are numbered in groups from 1 to 13. Since there are 20 day names, after the count of thirteen is reached, the next day starts over at 1. The 260-day or sacred count Mayans calendar has been in use for centuries, probably before the beginning of writing.
The ancient Maya had a completely different understanding and interpretation of time than any other culture or civilization. The ancient Maya understood and accepted the fact that time is not linear; with each event leading to a future event in a typical fashion. Instead they believed that time is just a series of repeating cycles.
As one cycle ends, it brings rebirth, and new cycle begins. This understanding is what led to the development of Mayan astrology based on the interpretations of the Mayan Calendar.
