#Cipactli is the first day sign of the #sacred calendar known as the #tonalpohualli as well as the first tracena (13 day week). It is known to represent the earth. The earth appears as a giant caiman, holding weight, laying in the #water, its skin mimics the ground. Cipactli is sometimes also represented as a #sea monster being half #crocodile and half fish with traits of a frog or toad. According to a #legend in the beginning there was only Cipactli and the sea. Cipactli therefore represents the beginning and the energy to start the day. People born on this day are believed to be quick learners with strong principles. They can guide and direct with #confidence. They make great leaders but are warned to not take advantage of their #power or the people who believe in them.
