There is an important energy trend in the Mayan Calendars that also applies to the 20 year “double-decade” (katun) period that we are in right now (‘Katun 2 Ahau’, from 2012 – 2032) and this is worth taking note of as we move into the 2020’s.
The energy flow rises and falls in a wave-like motion in Maya Calendar ages (regardless of whether the ages are long or short). The energy of an age starts to climb the energy pyramid at the beginning of the age, reaches its peak at its mid-point, and then descends on the other side.
What that means within the context of a katun-age is that the energy grows in intensity during the first half for 10 years, peaks during the 10th and 11th years, and declines again afterwards for 10 years. The years surrounding the peak years would all be potent in terms of being influenced by the energy of the age.

The Maya Short Count calendar is a 256 year cycle that assigns a specific symbol called a tone to each of its thirteen 20 year (19.7 to be exact) katuns. This number denotes certain aspects of a katun’s energy. For example, in the current katun, 2 symbolizes duality and polarity (among other characteristics).
The previous katun, from 1993 to 2012. had tone 4 assigned to it, which represented stability and order (tone 4 is known to be one most stable energies in the Maya calendars). An immediate observation that can be made is that at the transition point in 2012 the energies shifted metaphysically from stability to polarity – and that is how it has played out in reality too – there has been a huge increase in polarization and social upheaval since 2012.
The next six years, from 2020 to 2025 (as illustrated in the energy pyramid above), will have the most intense energy in this twenty year energy pyramid. This means that we may well be entering a period of high turbulence and volatility – if the trend of growing social and political polarization in societies in recent years is anything to go by …
According to this energy model the energy intensity should start to decline again from around 2026 onward. Some may find this information useful in terms of doing the neccesary mental or spiritual preparation for turbulent times (please see resources below).

The rising and falling of energy in the Maya calendars (there are close to 20 of them) is a general trend in the Maya calendars, although it might not affect all cycles equally.
Another aspect to the energy pyramid is that (in some cycles) during the energy incline the progression is more materialistic and during the energy decline it is more spiritual, so consciousness would shift from a more materialistic outlook in the first half to a more spiritual outlook in the second half. This may also be the case during this katun, with a subtle shift possibly happening in 2022. An illustration of this material to spiritual trend during a Tracena (a 13 day Maya calendar week) is illustrated and explained on this page by Mark Elmy in Guatemala:
The gradient of the rising and falling energy would not be as steep as depicted in the energy pyramid illustrated above (this was done due to limited space on the page). The change in energy would usually be very gradual and shift over time, which is why people are often not aware of it happening.
Although I have done my best to keep this information factual, these views should be considered my own. A more detailed analysis about rising and falling energy (with references) can be found in my essay: The Valley of Shadows in the Landscape of Light.
The Energy Shifts series (explains in detail how the metaphysical energy shifts work and their influence on consciousness and life).
