The Tzolkin is the 260-day calendar used by civilizations from Mesoamerica for over 2000 years. Originally of Mayan origin, the Tzolkin became a part of almost every other Mesoamerican civilization in one form or another, including the Aztecs and many others.
The Tzolkin Mayan calendar features 13 numbers and 20 days. Each day has a specific name and characteristic and is associated with a particular spirit. The numbers are matched to the days on a rotational basis, forming new relationships as days go by. It takes a period of 260 days to make a complete cycle of number-day combinations and each of the 260 days has a descriptor which is why it is a popular tool for divination sessions like Tzolkin astrology and others.
