Roughly every 14 months, the Red Star, X,  and the Green Star, X, have a conjunction above and then another below Sigilis separated by about 2 weeks. These regular conjunctions are the basis for the Red-Green Calendar , which marks off time based on the length of the red sun day: 23311 seconds (approx. 6 1/2 hours) and the Red-Green year (the length of time between conjunction pairs). The Red-Green Year consists of 1653 red sun days, which are grouped into 3 octaves of 19 months consisting of 29 red sun days...

The 3 Stars of Sigilis
Prime Sigilis
Sigilis exists in a Ptolomeic universe: the world sits at the center and the heavens revolve  around it. There are three stars that circle the world: the Red Star, X, which completes a revolution every 23311 seconds at as distance of 49,889,664 km (13,447+ km/s), the Green Star, X, which completes a revolution every 33161 seconds at as distance of 77,248,512 km (14,636+ km/s), and the Blue Star, X, which completes a revolution every 44711 seconds at as distance of 94,951,296 km (13,343+ km/s).You may think: well that is all well and good, but I am no astronomer, what do I care?  The main sources of light in the world are from the three stars and their respective locations at any given time will be reflected in the color and quality of the light and the color of the sky. You will also find that the dates and times used reflect the nature of a world circled around three axes by three separate stars...
