8 Tijax – Today’s Maya Day Sign (Ch’umil)
Tijax is the power of the thunder and the lightning represented by the obsidian stone which is black and transparent, sharp but fragile. It is also the obsidian double-edged knife which represents the negative in the positive and the positive in the negative; it is the strength and power of the warrior. Number 8 symbolizes the complete energies of the material world. The energies of this day provide you with the power to cut off any material blockages and negative energies. During the Creation of the Universe 8 Tijax planted its hands and feet firmly and nailed them to the ground.
