The 13 Moon Calendar is a whole system or method of understanding which can be used for any number of purposes.
One of my favorite uses of it is connection, or interconnectivity: Connecting people with each other; connecting everyone with the planet, solar system and galaxy. It can work as a tool to expand awareness and sensitivity to the truth of our larger context: we’re not just [Name] from [Place on Earth] – we exist in and are connected to a vast universe!
The premise behind the 13 Moon Calendar is that every single thing is intrinsically connected. This is because it proceeds from the perspective that Time is the universal factor of synchronization. What does that mean? Well, for one: this moment, right now, is the exact same moment as it is at Pluto, or even in a completely different solar system or galaxy. The present moment synchronizes us with our favorite crater on Pluto’s surface (or any other point in infinite space for that matter).
Not to confuse time and space: You may look at the night sky and see the light of a star that died ages ago, whose light is just now reaching our planet. This is what we see with our eyes from our planet right now, but it is still NOW both here (on Earth) and there (where that star used to be). If you were to instantly transport to that point in the galaxy where that star used to be, it is still “right now”.
This is an illustration of why one of the premises of the Law of Time is the velocity of time is instantaneously infinite. The present moment is the only medium in the universe that instantaneously connects everything: Everything that is exists in the present moment! (Perhaps even the past and future?)
From this perspective, everything is indeed connected: through the present moment. The 13 Moon Calendar is like a tool or machine that is powered by Time (a.k.a. the present moment) – instead of by kinetic energy, momentum or inertia for instance.
So, when the 13 Moon Calendar gives people a galactic signature it provides a fresh context and a highly subjective tool for finding instantaneous connections with one another. Each person understands their galactic signature in a unique way – and since the galactic signatures intrinsically interconnect in a vast multitude of ways, it provides a playground for novel points-of-view, thinking new thoughts and for connecting with one another.
Being mathematically based – in which everything has its number – the 13 Moon Calendar can be coded to different structures and systems. For example, the 13-unit wavespell can be used as a tool to interact in new ways with the 13-note chromatic scale.
One such mathematical coding in the 13 Moon Calendar is the 20-day cycle that is mapped onto the planet Earth in such a way that each of the 20 days codes “1/20th” of the planet. As shown in this diagram, which is called the “Planet Holon”. (Holon, simply put, means “body in time” – it is the physical body of planet Earth, with a cycle of time coded to it, 20 regions = 20 days).
By utilizing this map you have a tool for systematically cultivating and deepening your awareness and familiarity with the whole of the Earth (or by using the more detailed map from the third lesson of my free video class “7 Ways to Embody and Apply the 13 Moon Calendar“).
Ultimately this becomes an opportunity for expanding global awareness, or perhaps put more accurately: planetary consciousness – becoming conscious of the whole planet you happen to live on.
Maybe you’d like to do a 20-day experiment using the Planet Holon as a guide, starting today: a Blue Hand day – which codes much of the South Pacific Ocean, including the Hawaiian Islands. Maybe you can do some research about Hawaii and its geography, or history or culture or current events; Seek out some Hawaiian art, create an art piece inspired by Hawaii; or research the marine life in that part of the ocean – whatever inspires you.
Then tomorrow move on to the Yellow Star region, then the Red Moon region, and continue on until it is Blue Hand day again – make note of your experience. Will you begin to feel more connected to the whole planet?
