We evaluate the invariant forms of the neutrino mass matrices which arise from the seesaw mechanism with heavy Majorana mass matrices subject to texture zero under a cyclic permutation. From eight possible patterns of the heavy Majorana neutrino mass matrices, we found that there is no heavy Majorana neutrino mass matrix invariant in form under a cyclic permutation. But, by imposing an additional assumption that at least one of the 2x2 sub-matrices of the heavy Majorana neutrino mass matrix inverse has zero determinant, we found that two of the heavy Majorana neutrino mass matrices have to be invariant under a cyclic permutation. One of these two invariant heavy Majorana neutrino mass matrix can be used to explain the neutrino mixing phenomena for both solar and atmospheric neutrinos qualitatively.
