13 Ajmak (15th May 2019)

13 AjmakThis is a very powerful day of redemption both from, and of, the ancestors. This can relate not only to the living ancestors, but those in the spirit world.

Sometimes the karma we carry is not only our own, it is that of our society. It is an energy which persists through generations, patterns which are passed through families long after the initial event. This creates something that we ourselves are so far removed from, we may not even realise that we are carrying it. The day 13 Ajmak gives us an opportunity for absolution, not only for ourselves but for our ancestral past.

As the nawal of “being human”, sometimes the energy of Ajmak teaches us how to get back up on our feet after we have “fallen.” However, in order to learn this, of course we have to fall, how to make mistake. The strength of the energy of today may bring some strong lessons from this regard. This day has the potential for some of the greatest acts of forgiveness, but it also has the potential for some almighty mistakes to be made. It is certainly a day to exercise caution in your decision making process.

Ajmak brings us the opportunity to “bring the sweetness into life” and we do this through true forgiveness. This is the day to make peace, particularly with those who are now in the other world. If there is an unresolved issue, a broken promise or apology to make, today is a day to resolve it, even if that is at a graveside. It is a day to exonerate guilt, blame, shame and remorse, and to release the associated burden so that we can move freely into the creation of the new world.

I’m sorry

Please forgive me

Thank you

I love you

When the creators fashioned the four first men, the Bacab’ob, they created them as equals. These four first humans had superhuman abilities, including the ability to see through space and time. As equals were not desired, the gods smoked the mirror of perception, giving us our human set of senses. When we lost the ability to see through time, we lost the ability to see the true consequences of our actions and thus we needed to start asking for forgiveness. Sometimes even well meaning actions can cause problems at a later date. Ajmak represents this ability to forgive others, the ability to forgive ourselves and the ability to accept forgiveness.

Ajmak is a sensual energy, which creates some of the reasons for its needing to be forgiven. It is kind and very lovable, but irresponsible. It can be a very talented energy, with great ideas. However it can also be very easily distracted, especially by anything that makes it feel nice. This often leads Ajmak to failing to fulfil its true potential, although due to its lovable nature it is easy to forgive. One of the lessons with regards to the Ajmak energy is learning to forgive oneself.

The number 13 is the final number on the pyramid. It represents the spirit world. It is said that on Halloween, the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. However within the sacred calendar, this thinning happens every 13 days. This connection with the spirit world creates a powerful day, where both the positive and negative aspects of the nawal it is attached to come through strongly. It is a very good day for activities such as divination, however, ceremonies on 13 days are generally only carried out by experienced Aj Q’ij who understand how to work with that strength of energy.

  1. Hi Mark,

    I was reading your daily meditation on the Chok’Q’ij when I’ve struck upon a sentence of yours that really resonated with me:

    “Ajmak is a sensual energy, which creates some of the reasons for its needing to be forgiven. It is kind and very lovable, but irresponsible. It can be a very talented energy, with great ideas. However it can also be very easily distracted, especially by anything that makes it feel nice. ”

    I’ve probably read it a few dozen times now, but only today did it hit me how well that described me. However, being born on July 27th 1976 at 10:30 am, I always thought myself as a K’at person. So I went back to the Four Paths diagram and yup. I have Ajmak in my past.

    My understanding of it was, that it served mostly as a context for the current sign. Something like “you were lazy/head on the clouds/fun-loving person and you got yourself into stuff that you need to untangle from now”.
    But what it hit me today is that today, in this very moment I still am “lazy/airy/I can handle responsibility, but please don’t pass it on/let me do my own stuff, but please make sure I don’t strain from the path” type of person.
    So I guess my question is. Are the Past/ Future paths actual living influences that inform and are felt in the day-to-day life, or are they just points on a map (starting point; ending point) that allow one to contextualize the journey but don’t have any real weight on the day-to-day life?

    Thank you for your attention

  2. Hi Miguel

    Your nawal is 7 K’at. This means that your conception/past energy is 12 Ajmak, one of the most powerful nawales in your cross, with the exception of the 13 Tz’i in your feminine side. The way I see this is that both of those influences are stronger than either your own energy, or that of your physical side or future, so would tend to have the effect of directing your energy more towards the past than the future. I would guess that this would make it pretty difficult to escape from.

    I hope that helps to explain it

    Kind regards

  3. Hi Mark,

    42 years and counting… and I’m only starting to get rid of it now! I thought that 7 K’at being the “definitive break out of jail card” would be stronger than both 12 Ajmak and 13 T’zi, but from what you are saying, it boils down to the numbers being higher or lower.

    Thank you for your attention, Mark. That was very helpful, and something to chew in.

    Btw, most of my knowledge here comes from reading your column. So, great work all around. It is a treasure-trove of great information:)

    Best, Miguel
