The Red-Green Calendar

Prime Sigilis Dec 17, 2008

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.

Similar cycles exist between the Blue Star, X, and the Green Star which accounts for the Blue-Green Year. There is also a third set of conjunctions between the Red Star and the Blue Star which creates the Red-Blue Year.
