The ancient Maya created an astrological system which is divided into 19 signs of the zodiac. The symbolism of the signs that represent the movement of the day throughout the year was based on aspects that are important for their culture. Their scientific, technological, social and artistic progress took place around year 650. Mayas measured the solar system with incredible precision. They devised two calendars, horoscope and created a system of numbers of only three symbols (0, 1, 5). Take a look what your horoscope sign is according to ancient Mayas.
