The significance of this day

Eight Ocelot and Nine Eagle, Ten Vulture, Eleven Motion, Twelve Flint Knife ?all of these were days in no way good. So it was said that he who was then bom was without merit, deserts, or blessings. He was quite purposeless on earth. (Florentine Codex, Dibble and Anderson, bk 4, page 19-21)
