Ancient calendars are
lunar. Most of the paleolithical and neolithical times are matriarchal,
ie, led by women. This leadership is defined by inclusiveness ie,
the spirit we are seeking to restore.
The way humans measure time is through the relationship
of light and darkness. A "day" is the Earth rotating
on its axe.
The "year" is the earth rotating around the Sun once,
usually measured from winter solstice to winter solstice.
The Moon, Earth´s satelite, rotates thirteen
times around the Earth in its path around the Sun, each of these
orbits is called a "lunation" and is measured by the
time from new moon to the next new moon.
Our ancestress discovered this cycle because
it rules our fertility.
Thirteen is the matriarch sacred number because its knowledge
gave access to the most transcendental expansion of awareness
thirty thousand years ago. (this opens the whole book)
When the indoeurpeans invaded Mesopotamia, 5000
years ago aprox, the male led nomadic culture whose mode of production
was war, came in touch with the sedentary women led, agricultural
clans. This encounter between those who venerated taking lifes
and those who venerated giving life is found in most archeological
vestiges, tales and myths.
Thirteen as the sacred symbol and knowledge
of nature and cosmos has been stigmatized to consolidate patriarchal
Yes recovering our intunment with nature and
cosmos is key to get off the suicidal patriarchal dynamic and
to do my part I publish a small lunnar planner in Spanish and
for Mexico´s longitude.
Mayans have been extremely knowleagable of cosmic
cycles. They anticipated 3126 years ago the time the solar system
takes to go around its Sun, Alcione, This orbit is 26,000 years.
They describe the winter solstice of our 2012, (188.8.131.52.0 in
Mayan count) as the exact date for the galactic equator crossing
with the Ecliptic in Sagitarius (the state of awareness that weareallone).
Imagine what an achievement, to be able to address
the "equator" of our galaxy Andromeda, of which our
Solar system is a tiny thing in one of her stardust arms.
