Red Moon Wavespell – Flowing

by Mariela Maya


In the middle of unpacking boxes and running lots of errands since moving to our new home in Sedona, we also had the opportunity to make some new friends who showed up in our backyard… a snake, bobcat, javelina and other beautiful wild animals!

I need to make sure to always have the camera ready! In addition to the four-legged ones, ravens, hummingbirds and all types of colorful birds have been also visiting us daily : )

Solstice and Giving Closure to 2017… What a Year!

With all its ups and downs, 2017 has been felt with lots of intensity. From the crazy political environment globally, increasing violence, flooding and wildfires among others, and mainly the internal turmoil, it hasn’t been an easy year for many.

In this context that sometimes feels as irrational, so much of what has been hidden is coming to surface, which is a great sign of these times called by many as the Great Awakening. Pachakuti in the Inca prophecy means a time where things seem to be “upside down”, as a transition to something different and new to come.

Symbolically, this Solstice on December 21 marks the fifth anniversary when many in modern society thought it would be the end of the world. You can read about 2012 here.

This year we have the opportunity, on the day of Yellow Self-Existing Human, to truly choose what we want individually and collectively. Change starts with oneself, and we are all responsible in our own path to make wiser choices in how we use our free will for the highest good of all. May we all become conscious of our role as a thread in this tapestry called Humanity, and how our actions have an impact in the whole.

Happy Solstice to all, Winter in the North and Summer in the South!


The theme for the next 13 days is Being!

As human beings, we tend to always ‘do’. We enter in a rhythm that many times does not feel natural developing all kind of habits and behaviors we know they don’t serve our purpose, and which end up hurting others and oneself. The moment we allow ourselves to truly feel, to become more sensitive with life and with all of our relations, we realize it is time to change for things to flow and experience wellbeing. What makes you happy?

Read first what our little caterpillar friend is going through in these days and then what Flowing Butterfly has to say about it:

Beginning of the Green Castle

The Wavespell of the Red Moon initiates the Green Castle of Transcendence, the fifth and last Castle of this 260-day Tzolkin cycle, which ends on February 7, 2018. The next 52 days provide great opportunities to wrap up and enjoy what we have been working on since May 24, 2017.

The 20 coloring butterflies made for each Wavespell in the previous cycle are posted on this page so you can continue playing. You will find them in the glyphs order from 1 (Red Dragon) to 20 (Yellow Sun) including a brief reference to their meaning.

May 24, 2017 to February 7, 2018 (to read about the proposal and format for this cycle and dowload useful documents click here).

Happy Holiday Season 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.
