5 Q’anil ~ Today’s Ch’umil
Q’anil means seed and life. It is the day to ask for the germination of sacred corn and everything else that Mother Nature produces; it is fertility in humans, plants and animals. Everything that begins on this day has a positive future. Number 5 is the energy of action which allows you to achieve anything you set your mind into. This day blooms with possibilities. Ask for the fruition of your projects so that they will bring you personal satisfaction and financial wellbeing.
During the Creation of the Universe 5 Q’anil created the great sewer of the great lagoon of the sea.
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.
