Kawak – Rain & Storm (Lightening)


These people are influenced by the change in weather. They are balanced, caring and protective of friends and family.

People born on the day sign Kawak make successful nurses, mid-wives, farmers and fishermen.

The Maya word today in the Kaqchikel language is Kawoq.

Rain was of great importance to the Maya in not only being farmers and needing it for their crops, but there aren’t any water sources in the rainforest. Rain is still important amongst the Maya today in that offerings continue to be made to Chaak, the rain god.

The ancient Maya saw lightening as not just a dangerous power, but life giving as in their myth of the origin of maize, lightening splits open the rock containing the hidden (maize) seed.
