Blue Castle of Transformation
Second Wavespell (2 out of 4)

Within the Tzolkin cycle of 260 days there are 5 castles of 52 days each. A Castle has 4 Wavespells of 13 days each and the theme of each Wavespell is determined by the glyph that falls on its first day.

The Blue Castle began with the previous Wavespell of the Red Serpent, a period of 13 days where we were invited to act upon our gut-feelings and shed our past as serpents shed their skin in order to recover our vitality and passion.

As we follow our instincts and continue shedding, we may start experiencing certain situations and relationships as overwhelming and confusing. The question is: what is and what is just my own projection?

This time, the White Mirror Wavespell invites us to clean our “foggy mirrors” or filters through which we see reality and use our discernment to distinguish truth from illusion so we can live our lives and connect with others authentically.

The way we experience reality is personal and different for each one. White Mirror reminds us of the importance to look within and cut with what no longer serves us so our outer and inner worlds reflect in harmony and we feel at peace.

August Month of Pachamama
Honoring our Beloved Mother Earth

For thousands of years, Native people around the world lived in physical and spiritual communion with Mother Earth and Nature’s elements, in a relationship based on respect and love for the planet and all living beings. Nature’s cycles were revered and humans lived in harmony with the rest of creation.

Although this connection has been neglected by modern society, especially since the days of industrialization, there are still communities and individuals globally that keep traditions alive as a way to express gratitude and love for Mother Earth, thanking her for nurturing and giving us all we need to subsist.

From Quechua and Aymara languages, Pachamama can be understood as Mother Earth and it is a focal point in the Andean cosmovision. Through rituals and celebrations, many indigenous communities in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and the North of Argentina pay tribute to the Earth on August every year, known as the “Month of the Pachamama”. Let’s unite our hearts with those loving ceremonies and give thanks to Mother Earth, this month and every single day of our existence!

Tribute to my Dear Friend Don Squibb
Astrology at Work

My very dear friend Don Squibb passed away recently at the age of 82. He was a White Planetary Dog guided by the White Mirror.

Don was both Harvard graduated and a great astrologer. I invite you to visit his column at The New Era Times where you can read his wonderful articles about astrological signs.

We instantly became friends when meeting over eight years ago. Among the so many things Don taught me, one of them was that age is an illusion. He was full of life, enthusiasm and positive attitude and we never felt any age difference between us!

When in Houston, Don actively participated in all the ceremonies I have hosted, from the first to the last one, and he always sat next to me. This last solstice celebration on June 21, 2015 was double special as it was also Father’s Day. We had the chance to have lunch together filled with great conversations a couple of weeks later, just a few days before he passed.

I am writing this message from the Sacred Valley in Peru. Don loved this country and he was always very excited when I was back from my trips so we could share the group experiences… for hours! This time he is coming with us not only in my heart but, symbolically and synchronically, our combined group oracle is what Don would have been in his upcoming birthday this month… coincidences do not exist : )

In gratitude to a very beautiful and authentic friendship and for serving as a great mirror to each other, I send you all much love from Peru!

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.
