The Calendar of The Soul — CoTS.
Rudolf Steiner's collection of 52 verses, given in English and German, will enable the soul to actively participate in the progressing life of the year as it evolves from week to week. Starting at Easter, a specific verse is sent to subscribers that describes a Mood of Soul for that week: Easter is the first verse, the next week the second verse, and so on ...
Dates are not important here as Easter, the starting point each year, is a movable date depending on when the first Full Moon occurs after the Vernal (Spring) Equinox. In 1582, Pope Gregory declared that the Vernal Equinox always occurs on March 21st, but now, that is no longer true. It is occurring on March 20th, which means that every 19 years, the first Full Moon will occur on the same day as the Equinox, thus causing an Ecclesiastical and a Celestial Easter! We will send two verses each week so all subscribers can decide for themselves which verse is more appropriate for them.
Note that this is an opt-in list: subscribers decide for themselves to become a member of this mailing list, and they are responsible for maintaining that membership. Using their password, members can subscribe, or unsubscribe, or even change their email address. There are many options subscribers can "tweak."
As a meditation, these verses, along with a keen observation of one's daily surroundings, can bring each person to a new awareness of self. Note that the Mood of Soul is maintained over any three consecutive verses.
This list is to be used by everyone, but those folks living in the Northern Hemisphere will experience the most affinity between the verses and the time of year.
We appreciate your being here!
