Ajpu is the day of the Sun. It is the day of Hun Hunahpu and Wukub Hunahpu and the
twin magicians Hun Ajpu and Ixbalamque. It is a special day for all the craftspeople,
musicians, dancers, painters, carvers, sculptors, polishers and for all the
people who practice the arts.
When the Light of the Sun illuminates us, its
rays make us awake the mind and they lead us on a way of obedience. The feet
and the hands are our tools, means to help others, the needy ones. You will
serve without conditions and this way, you will triumph above all. Through serving
all, you are opening a breach for your future ; for the Light to never put out
on your way. This Light is your shelter. Be obedient and humble and you
will be the example among all.

Light, energy of the Sun on the nature, the good and the evil. Blow pipe shooter,
hunter, everlasting walker.
It is the symbol of the punishing power of our ancestors still present in energy
and watching over their property, home, and shelter.
It represents the musicians, artists, observers, communicators and writers.
It is the day created by the progenitors in order to serve as a balance between the good
and the evil, but according to their teachings, we can affirm that the good always triumphs
upon the evil. The notions of the good and the evil have been given to us in
order to help us measure, evaluate and be driven in our path of life on the
blessed face of the Earth ; they have been given to us to help us measure and
evaluate our behaviours and our attitudes and as well to help us be certain
that always, we are asked to defeat the evil thanks to our goodness.
It is the triumph upon the negative energies, the spiritual warrior. The twins Jun Ajpu
and Ixbalamke defeat all the challenges and obstacles in Xibalba, the underworld
; they die and resurrect ; allegory of the spiritual awakening.
This sign bears material and spiritual certainty ; it is the transformation and mutation
; the one who carries out miracles. It is the Sun ; the solar representation ; the
day of Greatness and Strength of Life. It is the intervention of the ancestors
responding to the requests asked for during a ceremony. It is the physical strength
; the strength to go on living after death.
It is the day to ask for
wisdom to the Creator in order to understand the knowledge of the
elders, more experienced and wiser people than us. It is the day to receive divine
and natural messages, to ask for the maternal milk, to ask for the healing of
illnesses ; to ask for helping children improve their oral communication ability
and as well to ask for strength for the weak ones.
The ceremonies carried
out on a day Ajpu have to be as strong as the Sun in order for the evil, the
illnesses, the calumnies to be pushed away the more harmonious way possible.
It is the day which gives strength, courage and energy to overcome the obstacles.
The person born on a day Ajpu was conceived on a day Ee and his destiny will
be ruled by the day Q'anil. They have the mission of orientating, guiding humanity,
of giving the real spiritual Light, and not their idea of the Truth. The ego
is their major obstacle on their spiritual path.
Their health is complete ; of a great physical strength and for that reason they don't
tend to easily get ill.
This person will be protected by a higher force, but if
he/she does not become aware of this force, he/she will probably be a prejudicial
element for the society : someone who divides and misleads ideas. He/she has
a deep, profound vision which goes beyond the shallow and superficial.
* They avoid responsibilities and don't accept corrections

The sign Ee, in the conception, will generate lots of travelling
in their life and per period, they will live abroad. This energy
encourages the love stories with foreign people.
The energy of the I'x, on the right side, gives them the
power of being good intermediaries ; it is the energy which gives
them artistic talents. To men, the knowledge of women is given.
To women, femininity, sensuality and smartness are given.
The Kame, on the left side, protects the life of those
born on a day Ajpu. It gives them a great curiosity, courage and
The energy of destiny, Q'anil, makes them sowers ; their
mission being showing the way and sowing the seed, without necessarily
seeing the fruits of their actions.
