Mayan astrology differs from Western astrology in many important ways. It is based on a person's nahual — one of 20 nahuales, powerful entities from the spirit world, not the 12 signs of the Western zodiac. And besides telling you the energy and potential with which you were born, Mayan astrology also gives you advice on your path through life, or destiny.
Another key difference between the two is that a person's place of birth is not necessary for a Mayan reading, and the time plays a role only if you are born after sunset.
Chinese Astrology and Mayan Astrology
It has more in common with Chinese astrology than Western astrology, as Chinese horoscopes are based on twelve animals. The Chinese and Maya considered jade a magical gem, and there are other similarities, too.

Like its Western counterparts, Mayan astrologers can create a composite chart that blends the day signs of two people into a new one that is the energy of them as a couple or as business partners.
