HAPPY NEW TZOLKIN CYCLE!
Red Dragon Wavespell & Red Castle
Initiations and New Beginnings
Greetings from sunny Buenos Aires while celebrating a New Tzolkin Cycle and Total Lunar Eclipse in Full Moon called Blood Moon for its red color!
We had a beautiful Despacho and Autumn Equinox ceremony last Saturday after a couple of intense weeks and changing my traveling plans to Argentina at last minute due to an unexpected situation with my beloved kitty Nino (more about it at the end of this message). The ceremony was very special, perfect weather, with butterflies and a South American type of Hawk called Chimango flying above us in pairs several times during the event. How wonderful way to celebrate!
Today, April 4 2015, the Wavespell of the Red Dragon starts while simultaneously initiating the Red Castle, a period of 52 days to set our goals and put in motion projects and ideas we want to develop and manifest during the whole cycle. And as the Red Dragon represents the power of Birth, it also gives birth to an entire New Tzolkin Cycle of 260 days.
Since I get this question frequently, I will clarify it here: the Wavespell of the Red Dragon always initiates a new Tzolkin cycle every 260 days. As it is shorter than a year of 365 days, each Tzolkin cycle starts on a different Gregorian date. Both calendars meet again on the same day every 52 years.
Therefore, today, Red Magnetic Dragon (Dragon 1) initiates the:
Wavespell of the Red Dragon for 13 days (April 4–16, 2015)
Red Castle of Initiation for 52 days (April 4 to May 25, 2015)
Entire Tzolkin cycle for 260 days (April 4 to December 19, 2015)
Following the cycle and getting in sync with the daily energies makes life very magical, playful and filled with synchronicities! Not only today is Saturday, April 4, but it is also a Red Dragon day inviting us to nurture ourselves on all levels while starting something new!
You can use the Tzolkin matrix or Harmonic Module by clicking on the image on top of this message or here to have the entire cycle handy with Gregorian dates and a brief reference of each glyph’s meaning. And I invite you to visit the Daily Tzolkin each morning to read the message of the day (on the right side under the oracle) and meditate, reflect, open up to insights and act as you get inspired.
NOTE: Rather than teaching new things about the Mayan Calendar, my intention with my Wavespell messages every 13 days is to share with you tools and practical ideas to experience it. From my personal experience after 16 years of using it daily, the best way to ‘learn’ it is by playing with it. This is why I love sharing with you personal stories from travels, books, movies and life events so you can connect with it in a very practical and down to Earth way for conscious evolution.
This time, I will repeat the same format/content on top of each message as in the previous cycle (Light, Shadow, Questions for Reflection, Actions for Transformation), making changes only when I am called to do so. And I will always share under it something new in regards to how I relate to each Wavespell during this cycle. I encourage you to put the questions and actions into practice to truly benefit from the Tzolkin’s wisdom instead of just accumulating knowledge and trying to find “new things”.
Advice for beginners: if you are just getting familiar with it and you are interested in exploring it further, you will find an introduction to the Tzolkin and some links of interest in this old post. When people ask me for recommendations on how to approach it, the only thing I say is to avoid trying to understand it from your rational mind. Just allow yourself to embark into a new adventure filled with magic and synchronicities and let your intuition guide you. Play with it and see the results for yourself!
Window in between two Eclipses
Total Lunar Eclipse April 4, 2015
In between solar flares and the Total Solar Eclipse on the Equinox day, March was felt as a very intense month! Among others, I had to change my departure to Argentina and reschedule oracles and sessions as my kitty Nino feel ill and had to be hospitalized. Thank you so very much for your beautiful messages and healing wishes which were very powerful as he is doing much, much better! He was intoxicated and dehydrated for which he had to be on IV and, as he didn’t eat or drink water for a week, he lost a lot of weight and was very weak.
While it was a good idea to take him to the animal clinic due to his initial condition, it was an even better decision to take him out of there after a couple of days. I have a holistic approach to health and, when they told me they wanted to continue running tests, giving him shots and stronger medicine and antibiotics, I emphatically said no, it was time to go back home!
Referring to the energy of the Red Dragon, Nino started healing with lots of pampering, well wishes, loving energies and nurturing care. I gave him Reiki and Aqualead often, added Rescue Remedy to the water he had to get with a dropper and just let him have plenty of rest. One morning, as I was laying down with him on top of me and singing to him, he jumped, went downstairs to the kitchen and started drinking water by himself… From that moment on, he also started eating slowly and his recovering process has been truly amazing since! For those of you that have and love animals as I do, you will understand it when I say that for me Nino is like my “little boy”.
Having cats has been a huge lesson of letting go of control, my Wavespell of Birth and Purpose of the White World Bridger. I have always been a “dog’s person”, I grew up with dogs at home and had dogs all my life until end of 2007 when Gala died. As I was then in the corporate world and constantly traveling, I decided not to have another dog for a while. In the meantime, a friend gifted me with a cat, Amelie, and it was a whole new experience for me! Letting her go outside by herself felt so strange at first. My same friend gave me Nino a couple of years later. And this recent experience with Nino brought me another great lesson of trusting and following my “maternal instincts”.
I may be late to send out my next Wavespell message as I will am traveling to Cordoba in a few days and will not have access to the Internet. Look forward to share with you experiences from the trip on my return!
Happy Cycle to all!

In Lak’esh means “I am another yourself!”, a Mayan greeting that recognizes the Divine in each living Being. It’s a message of Unity that reminds us that, when we give, we are also receiving. In this way, the Mayan honored and respected each other, reinforcing the belief that we are all interconnected: what we do to others and to our environment will also affect ourselves in the end…
Munay means both ‘Love’ and ‘Beauty’ in Quechua, the language of the Incas. Munay, translated as ‘To love’, is one of the three principles of the Andean way.
