The Guide
Learn how to read, use and print your EarthCycles Calendar.

Welcome to the EarthCycles Guide. This little wiki will help you make sense of the calendar.

Yep. The Calendar can be pretty intimidating at first glance. There's a lot going on! But, everything has a point, place and purpose. Once you get it, its actually all quite straightfoward-- its just a new way to look at time.
In fact, every element of the calendar corresponds to an aspect of our solar system. So getting to know your calendar, is a way to know your own solar neighbourhood a little better! The more you understand the calendar, the more you'll understand how our solar system spins-- and vice versa.
In fact, this is the point of the EarthCycles calendar. In the past, our ancestor's perception of time was deeply immersed with the cycles of the Earth, planets and stars. To the extent that a culture centered on cycles (and less so on itself!), societies grew rich, diverse and resilient.
Alas, our modern calendar has brown more and more separate from the cycles around us. Contemporary calendars only follow one cycle-- that of the sun. In the past, great civilizations followed not just the sun, but the moon, planets and even certain specific stars and distant galaxies!
Knowing and understanding the cycles of which were part deepens every aspect of our lives and society. That's the vision of the EarthCycles calendar-- this way our spin around the sun on planet Earth can be that much deeper and meaningful.
