March 2020

Here are the days of the Chol Q’ij mapped onto the Gregorian month of March 2020.

During this Gregorian month, we will finish the trecena of Aq’ab’al and pass through the trecenas of Ajmak and Toj.

In the sky we will see Mercury at its greatest Western elongation (maximum altitude above the Eastern horizon) on the morning of the 24th March and Venus at its greatest eastern elongation (maximum altitude above the Western horizon) on the evening of 24th March. As this falls on the day of the new moon, it should be an excellent time to observe both of these planets, particularly Mercury with it being the more difficult one to spot.

We will also be passing through the time of Equinox, which will occur this year at 0350 UTC on March 20th, 2150 Guatemala time on March 19th.

If you are the more technically minded I have also created a plugin for Google calendar which will enable you to track the days of the sacred calendar on your smartphone. In this way you can ensure that your activities are aligned to the most conducive energies! It is available for purchase here.
