2 Kan ~ Today’s Ch’umil & Maya Creation Cycle


Nawal KanKan is the serpent of fire whose energy resides at the base of the spinal column. It is the force of life, the movement, and the sexual energy. Number 2 represents duality and union, it is a favorable energy for relationships.  Use the energies of this day to remember the good times you have shared with your love partner; leave behind any sadness or pain you may have suffered in the past. This is a day for connection and passion.

During the Creation of the Universe on a day 2 Kan bad things rose and they could be seen in the eyes of people.

According to the Maya, the world was created in one Mayan month (twenty days). The process of creation begins on Jun (1) B’atz and ends on the day Wuqub’ (7) Tz’i’, completing the first twenty days of the Cholq’ij (Calendar of Life). After this final day of creation, the day Wajxaqib’ (8) B’atz’ arrives, which is considered the Cholq’ij New Year. When Maya people celebrate the Cholq’ij new year, they are celebrating that the creation of the world has been fulfilled, and the beginning of a new cycle of 260 days.
