As I explained in Mayan Astrology, the Mayan Astrology Calendar, or tzolkin, contains 260 days. These 260 days are broken down into groups of 20 days, called day-signs, which are similar to Mayan Zodiac Signs, or Sun Signs, if you're familiar with Western Astrology. However, the Mayan Astrology Calendar further divides the days into 20 groups of thirteen days, called trecenas.
- The Mayan Ritual Calendar (Tzolkin). The third Mayan calendar was the Ritual Calendar, or Tzolkin, which had 13 months of 20 days each (260 days total).

The moon was important to the Mayans, and the number thirteen was a very important number in Mexican astrology. The trecenas correlate with how the moon travels in one day the same amount of distance the sun travels in thirteen days. The moon also travels thirteen degrees of the zodiac every day.
It shouldn't surprise you that the word trecena is actually Spanish for thirteenth. That's how important both the number thirteen and a person's trecena are.
In order to understand trecenas, it might be easier to think of the 20 groups of thirteen days as 20 weeks of thirteen days.
Each group, or week, had a specific meaning that came from the day-sign that began the week. The first day of the week began with the number 1 and had the name of the day-sign. For example, if the day-sign for the week was Aj, the first day of the trecana would be called “1-Aj.”

E would describe their dominant personality – a natural leader, great communicator, and very caring.
On a secondary level, B'atz gives them the qualities of being driven and wanting only the best.
On another level, you have the directions. E is the West and B'atz is the East. This person could be torn between taking action to make things happen and working with others to reach an agreeable solution.
One other note: The trecenas don't follow the same order as the day-signs. Their order is:
