6 Knife (Tijax or Etznab): Meaning of the Mayan Nahual
Knife is the sacrificial knife but also the surgeon's scalpel. This is a good day for healing and nurturing. It can also mean loss, especially a personal sacrifice, in order to progress.
Knife may be a good time to cut someone out of your life, to cut to the chase in communications, and minimize your life by getting rid of things you don't really need.
Meaning of the Number
The coefficient 6 is one step before the middle of the 13-day trecena. It is well balanced and strong. However, some Kaqchikel and Ki'che' Maya disagree on the esoteric meanings.
The Kaqchikel consider 6 days as bringing life experiences or challenges that lead, hopefully, to learning, while the Ki'che' offer more positive meanings to the number.
