May 2024

Here are the days of the Chol Q’ij mapped onto the Gregorian month of May 2024.

Some interesting things are happening in early May 2024. Wajxakib B’atz, the most important day of the sacred calendar, falls on 3rd May. Wajxakib B’atz is the renewal of the ceremonial cycle. It is a day on which new Aj Q’ij’ab are initiated and a day of celebration of the sacred calendar itself.

On the 4th the day of 9 E’ lines up with Bealtaine. Both these energies are a cause for celebration. Bealtaine can be seen as the first day of summer in the Celtic calendar, and 9 E’ celebrates our life path. It seems to be an auspicious pairing.

It is also around the time of the Eta Aquarid meteor shower, which peaks on the morning of the 5th. This year it falls around the time of the new moon. This will mean that the meteor shower may be visible, clouds permitting. It would be a fitting way to end a Bealtaine fire ceremony taking place on the night between the 4th and 5th May.


My 2024 calendar is now available. The calendar shows the days of the Chol Q’ij, formatted onto the Gregorian calendar. This year it is available electronically as a PDF in both English and Spanish. Printed versions, in English, are now beginning to run low, but you may be able to still find a copy locally here in Guatemala, in Lava Love Cacao in San Marcos. See this link for details on how to get your pdf

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

Please click the calendar for a larger version to print out if you would like to. Below the calendar are clickable links to my interpretation of the energy of each of the days. Please be aware that although they might refer to Gregorian dates in the past, the energy of the day according to the sacred calendar will be the same.
