The Meaning of Your Mayan Nahual (Nawal), and Your Best Lovers and Friends
Meanings of the Nahuales
The core meaning on each nahual is provided here, but there are many other meanings beyond these. Keep in mind that all meanings do not apply to each individual, but should be interpreted in a Mayan astrology reading that considers other nahuales in the Tree of Life or Constellation, and other factors.
These nahual meanings provide a general view of the potential of people born under this sign, as well as the energy of the day. For more details and guidance, see the ebook Your Mayan Day Sign and Mayan Calendar Users Guide: How to Apply Mayan Astrology to Your Daily Life.
