Toj means paying. It is a special day to pay ; what do we pay ? We pay
for all that we have, for what we are ; for all that the Ajaw (Heart of the Sky,
Heart of the Earth) has given to us. How do we pay ? We pay with a ceremony.
That day is also used to ask for being well paid for our work ; it is only if
we are well paid that we can provide our family with what it needs and maintain
Toj is the sacred fire. Toj is to thank, to reconcile ourselves with ourselves
and others under the Ajaw ; also, it is
a day to heal our pains and sufferings. It is as well a day to obtain what we
need and to thank for life and all that it has given to us. If we feel we are
failing, we have to understand we are responsible for our failures as our failures
result from our lack of knowing how to look for and then find the thread or
path of our destiny.

The Mayan Cross of the TOJ
The person born on a day Toj is conceived on a day Imox and his/her destiny
is ruled by the day No'j. The bearers of this sign are given a special power
to develop their internal strength ; they have to use this power for positive
purposes and not orientate and waste it in negative things.
The energy of their conception, Imox, brings them a good
dose of sensitivity and excentricity ; it developps their intuition
and revelations through their dreams. It gives them as well a good
relation with water.
The Aq'ab'al, on their right side, will make them look
physically younger than their real age and it will as well give
them a vanguard and futurist vision. They will be given lots of
opportunities all through their life.
The Tz'ikin, on their left side, gives them an extra energy
which will make them appear restless and very powerful. They will
enjoy a good social position and good fortune.
The energy of their destiny, No'j (knowledge and wisdom)
will make their life a marvellous and dignified experience.
