The Kemetic Calendar, also known as the Sidereal Calendar, is used today by modern people and traditional people alike who aspire to yield to the original spiritual system of humanity. It is an easy calendar to use even in the modern world because the corresponding Gregorian date (from the modern calendar) is displayed clearly on the bottom of each day. This allows you to use the Sidereal Calendar as the only calendar in your home and not miss a beat with the western calendar that we are all so accustomed to.
The Kemetic Calendar is ancient and therefore employes the original names for the months, days, and even weeks in humanity’s oldest language, Medu, commonly referred to as the Egyptian hieroglyphs. The Kemetic Calendar also provides information about the Gods which govern each month so one can discover the characteristics and personality traits that they share with those Gods based on the day of one’s birth. This is the original notion of the horoscope. In fact, the word horoscope comes from a Kemetic God named “Heru” commonly known by the Greeks as “Horus.”
The most impressive thing about the Kemetic Calendar is that it is based on a time division using an astronomical phenomena that occurs every 1,461 years! It is amazing how our ancestors were able to work together generation to generation in order to record the occurrence of this perfect cycle. Since this is an astronomically correct calendar, it is also known as the Sidereal Calendar. “Sidereal” is a word that’s root means “star,” and the star that the Kemetic Calendar is based on is called Septet (in Medu), known as the Sirius B star to the modern world. It is notable that the Dogon Tribe of Meritah (Africa) have known about the existence of this star even before modern science.
In addition to being astronomically correct, the Kemetic Calendar is also a spiritually correct or perfect calendar. The greatest benefit of the Kemetic Calendar is that with respect to traditional space and time, the days that are most favorable for ancestral and deity worship are accurately presented for one who wishes to practice their spiritual activities. We call it “traditional time and space” because all of the temples, the initiates, and even most people in Meritah have the approach to time that allows them to unveil some things that are kind of hidden.
The days well indicated for spiritual activity are known as Ancestral Holy Days and Divine Holy Days. Think of the word “holiday,” which is clearly stemming from an original concept of “holy days” that are no longer observed in the west. Contrastly, the “holiday” of the western calendar is to denote when one doesn’t have to observe their obligations at work. This is the opposite for a spiritual person. Rather, a holy day is the time in which one would make sure to fulfill their obligations to the world of the dead and the divine world with techniques used in nature.
The crime with today’s western calendar is that it is not based on time division at all. The western calendar has changed based on the whims of political leaders or the discrepancies in the seasons through history. In fact, the western calendar that we use today has evolved throughout the centuries to copy the accuracy of the Kemetic Calendar. For example, the notion of the “leap day” comes from the Kemetic Calendar’s World Renewal Day, which has existed for hundreds of thousands of years. This concept did not exist in the western calendar until 1582.
The western calendar is only useful to the extent of it’s popularity around the world. But it is not useful in the aspect of keeping in line with the cycles of nature and the divine world. There are many days throughout the year that are spiritually and astronomically favorable or unfavorable for certain activities, but the western calendar only denotes political or state “holidays.” The Sidereal Calendar offered by The Earth Center, using the Kemetic tradition of our place in the universe, offers the convenience of both our worlds: allowing one to observe the spiritually indicated days while also observing the western schedule that dominates the workplace. Although it is useful to adhere to the work schedules and day to day meetings that dominate our calendars, it would be good if we also adhered to humanity’s oldest and most accurate time-keeping device. It is very important for humanity to preserve the Kemetic Calendar so as not to lose our original notion of time and space.
