Red Dragon Wavespell + NEW CYCLE!

by Mariela Maya



We had a beautiful Andean Despacho ceremony with a great group last Sunday while celebrating the Winter Solstice on the first day of the Red Dragon Wavespell. As this Wavespell initiates a new Tzolkin cycle and there are many new subscribers since the beginning of the previous cycle, I will give a little introduction so this message will be more technical than usual. As always, it is my intention to keep my future posts as practical as possible with real life experiences in a way that it is useful for everyone.

Representing the power of Birth, the Red Dragon Wavespell initiated on December 20, 2015 an entire Tzolkin cycle of 260 days until September 5, 2016. While this Wavespell always starts a new cycle, it falls on different Gregorian dates as they differ in length. Both calendars meet again on the same day every 52 years.

The Tzolkin calendar encompasses several layers that happen simultaneously. Red Magnetic Dragon (Dragon 1) initiated the:

Wavespell of the Red Dragon for 13 days (December 20, 2015 – January 1, 2016)
These days invite us to nurture ourselves on all levels as we embrace new beginnings! It also coincides this time with the Holiday season and end of the year so it’s a great timing to pamper ourselves and do things we love. What are your intentions for this cycle?

Red Castle of Initiation for 52 days (December 20, 2015 – February 9, 2016)
It’s time to set our goals and put in motion whatever we want to accomplish. Until February 9, we can choose a couple of concrete projects to develop through the process of manifestation during the next months. Which projects are important to you at the moment?

Entire Tzolkin cycle for 260 days (December 20, 2015 – September 5, 2016)
We have roughly 9 months to get in tune with the energies daily so our intentions set within this Wavespell and the pre-work we do in this first Castle can come to fruition as we move forward into the following Castles.

Embodying a Wavespell – New Messages Format

In the last couple of cycles, I have been sharing with you basic information for each Wavespell related to the Light and Shadow aspects of the initiating glyph, including general questions for reflection and actions for transformation for each 13 days. You can always refer back to previous messages on my blog as you continue surfing the waves!

During the new cycle that just started, these messages will have a new format where I will share a practical and fun way to get in tune with the energies daily by embodying the Wavespell. On the top of each message, you will find an image that shows the 13 days of the current Wavespell with the Gregorian dates, corresponding glyphs and lunar tones, and how it all correlates to the human body.

Our physical body has 13 joints and a Wavespell is a period 13 days. Each day/joint relates to a different glyph or archetype that has an influence on certain aspects of our being. Since a Wavespell has 13 days/numbers and there are 20 glyphs/signs, all Wavespells will be different. In total, there are 20 x 13 = 260 combinations or days.

Each morning, move your joints in circular movements as you get connected with the meaning of that particular day. Always start on the right side with your ankle, followed by the knee, hip, wrist, elbow and shoulder. Continue moving your neck and, on the left side, move your shoulder down to your ankle.

The image below contains the 20 glyphs of the Tzolkin including a quick reference to their meaning. The invitation today is to start by getting connected with the glyphs first and, in my next message, I will explain what the numbers represent.

New Harmonic Module for 2016

The Harmonic Module is the matrix that contains the 260 days within the Tzolkin. You can click on the image below or here to have the entire cycle with Gregorian dates handy. 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.

Advice for beginners: If you are just getting familiar with the Tzolkin, try to avoid approaching 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 how magical everything becomes! Understanding comes with practice.

I have lots of great surprises to share with you in this cycle… stay in tune! : -)

Happy Holidays and a wonderful 2016 for 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.
