13 Moon Natural Time Calendar ~ A 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. Unlike the 12-month calendar which corresponds to no natural cycles, the 13 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). 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.
