Lo que es mundialmente y comunmente conocido como el "Calendario Azteka" tiene su propio nombre Tonalmachiotl...Tonal=Sol, Machiotl=/Machiote/Molde

El Molde de Sol

Now occupying center stage at the National Museum of Archaeology and History

in Chalpultepek Park in Mexico City; uncovered on December 17, 1790; sculpted in the year 13 AKATL, Reed, 1479; and containing milleniums of accumulated astronomical knowledge and wisdom spanning the continent stands the most enigmatic art/monument/icon in the world, the TONALMACHIOTL, also known as the Aztek Calendar, proven by modern scientific means to be the

most precise calendar system ever invented by humankind.


Our most ancient ancestors became OLMEKATL, Ol(lin) = movement;  Mekatl = rope, when they

began measuring the changes in nature and tying the movement of time in the cosmos. 

They were followed by our ancestors TOLTEKATL, the master craftmen that designed, built and created

according to the measurement of their grandfathers.   TOLTEK became synonymous for one who will

not settle for second best, one who will give his/her best and all to whatever endeavor they are

involved with to work to their peak of capacity.

Our ancestors from the MAYAB were entrusted with

leading us to the beginning of time and the end of the present cycle that will be manifested by various

projected astronomical Phenomena on 2012, especially regarding the Return of Ketzalkoatl

Finally, after milleniums the responsibility was passed onto our ancestors who reached the stage of AZTEKATL,

Az= harmonious instruments, Tekatl= person of; they created that monumental talking stone, the TONALMACHIOTL  that encompasses the secrets of the universe that allowed them to model

their life in a perfect harmonious relationship of the rhthym of the human being in his mother's womb

with those of nature and the earth at the Rhythm of the Cosmos.

Specifically the TONALMACHIOTL measures the human gestation period of nine months, 260-273 days,

called the TONALPOUALLI/TZOLKIN, in correlation with the period of the earth's translation around the Sun in

a 365.25 day solar year.  This period was recorded in 13 day cycles and when the child was born he or

she was given the name and number of that 24 hour piece of time where the ancestors could identify the

potential, qualities and capabilities that existed in that space of time, and this was  the basis of his/her

responsibility to everybody and everything that surrounded them.  Mother and father were responsible

for insuring their child grew up recognizing and knowing its potential and capacities and thus its

responsibilities by maintaining the rhythm in which it was born.

This is not to be confused with a horoscope or superstition as it was not meant to measure luck, future

nor destiny and it was not an obligation but a responsibility, and mother and father were given a cosmic

profile that would aid and guide them in the rasing of their child to be a positive contribution to the

community.  The readings continues to date!


Please be mindful that this is not an Aztek thing,

nor a Mexican thing, and neither is it an Indian thing but rather, this is the


"A Human Experience towards Personal Transcendence".

This is the culmination of a collective continental experiment that crossed thousands of miles

and peoples over thousands of years resulting in a Cosmic Identity and Responsibility

to everything and everybody that surrounds one.  Neither is this based on the color of your skin, eyes, nor

your hair, but rather on that moment you took your first breath of life...this calendar is for and about you.


-Now you can learn how to read and use the calendar on a daily basis.
