 Joan Santa Cruz Pachacuti Salcamaygua’s XVI Century “Ideogram” of aspects of Quechua-Inca Cosmology and Cosmovision

A Brief Inca-Andean-Quechua “Cosmovision” Glossary
Giorgio Piacenza Cabrera
          The following emergent, semi-formal and semi-alphabetically listed glossary reflects my progressing understanding of Quechua terms stemming from a partly lost but also still ongoing Quechua-Andean-Inca “cosmovision.” From many sources of knowledge, oftentimes not in exact agreement with each other, I have tried to condense my own version. It’s intended to flow without a strict, specific order.
          More important than exactly defining concepts to the satisfaction a typical Western analytical mind, the less cul...

Inca Shamanic Healing

The Inca Shaman’s approaches to the healing of land and buildings

The importance of balance or harmonious relationships
At the heart of the Inca Shaman’s approach to healing land and buildings is the concept of Ayni, which roughly translated from Q’uechua (the ancient language of the Inca) means something like “balance” or “harmonious relationship”. The shaman understands that the energies which exist everywhere can only flow properly when there is Ayni. When a place (or a person) is out of balance with itself and its surroundings, there is likely to be a problem. For example, households may encounter much conflict or a property may not sell...

Full Moon Names

Historically, the Native Americans who lived in the area that is now the northern and eastern United States kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the recurring full Moons.

Each full Moon name was applied to the entire month in which it occurred. These names, and some variations, were used by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior.

Magick and Lunar Phases

The phases of the moon are said to have a definite influence on your magickal purpose, so that it is important to choose the proper type of magick in relationship to that phase. Basically magick can be broken down into two distinct categories, drawing and banishing. During the waxing moon, we generally concentrate on drawing what we want towards us. During the waning moon, we should work towards banishing whatever it is that we want to get rid of.

For instance, if someone becomes ill during the waxing moon, work to draw health to that person rather than banishing the illness. And say, for example, that the situation calls for a money spell during the time of the waning moon, work towards banishing poverty instead of drawing money towards you...
