Unlike the 12-month calendar which corresponds to no natural cycles, the thirteen moon calendar is a “solar-lunar calendar” because 365 days is the measure of the Earth going around the Sun (solar) and 28 days is the average measure of the Moon’s synodic and sidereal cycles (lunar).
Every year cycle begins not as January 1st, but instead with July 26th as Day 1 of Moon 1. The correlate dates are fixed - for example, “January 1st” will always correspond to “Rhythmic Moon 20” (the 20th day of the 6th moon).
Printed around the world by people of diverse cultures and faiths, this 13 Moon calendar is proposed as the harmonious alternative to the unnatural, irregular 12-month yearly calendar which serves as the current world standard of time.
The 13-Moon calendar is the modern dispensation of ancient and indigenous wisdom and science. These codes, numbers, and cycles were known by earth dwellers and cosmic seers of past ages, and now, by us as we reawaken this knowledge within our own living cells.
In Campaign For the New Time, Dr. José Argüelles writes:
”To change the calendar is to change history itself…If we choose the 13 Moon Calendar, the species will operate by a 28-day cycle which is the female biological cycle. We will pace our daily lives by a perpetual calendar that will release the mind into the telepathic norms that are a property of the universal 13:20 timing frequency. We will find that this tool synchronizes the lunar and other world calendars according to a mathematical harmony previously unknown. Andreleased into an entirely different state of consciousness we will soon realize technologies that are mental rather than material in nature. A new synchronic order of human life will unify the planet.
“Is a calendar something more than a tool for scheduling the payment of debts (calends) or is it an instrument of synchronization? The harmony or disharmony of time is a profound matter rooted in the instrument of time reckoning that we use. There can be little question that we live more in a time of chaos than of harmony. We may also say in regard to the effect of standards of measure on the mind, that the chaos of the time is embedded in the calendar we use. If we are to leave this time of chaos and enter a time of harmony, then we must change the instrument in which the chaos is embedded for an instrument that is the very model of harmony - the 13 Moon, 28 day count.
“The Gregorian calendar, the current global civil standard is indeed the foundation in time of globalization…Only a species whose time sensibility had been captured by instruments of artificial measure could have become so alienated as to have produced the monstrous conundrum known as the ‘fast world,’ a civilization where money and technological advance prevail over human sensibility and the natural order. It is to the correction of this destructive momentum that all efforts of calendar reform must now be directed.” “
