Calendar of the Soul Verses

Moving Through the Year


The Calendar of the Soul verses begin with Easter Week (Week 1) and form the shape of a lemniscate, as shown below. The polar opposite verse for each week is also included. Choose the week you wish to see from the choices below. (Dates refer to the dates between Easter 1999 and Holy Saturday 2000.)

If you start at #1 and draw a line to #6, continue to #12, until you get to #52, you will have drawn a lemniscate or figure 8. Notice the relationship between the polar verses. They always add up to 53. Now imagine that you are standing on #1. You will now walk the figure 8, but with your left arm extended outward. Thus when you arrive at #26, you will have completed the top loop of the lemniscate, and your left arm is always pointing OUTWARDS. But when you cross the middle and go from #27 to #52, your extended left arm is now opointing INWARDS toward the inside of the lower loop of the lemniscate. This is the basic out-breathing and in-breathing of the cosmic year.

(For you mates and sheilas down under, subtract 26 from the current week's verse and walk the same way we up here would walk the lemniscate. That would make Week Number 26 in the Northern Hemisphere Week Number 52 for you in the Southern Hemisphere (with your polar verse being #1.)
