We want to get back the 13th Friday scheme. This almanac shows how that is possible. Helen Hye-Sook Hwang
This almanac functions as a handbook for us moderns to enter an archaically new way of understanding time/space, the inter-cosmic time, operating in the Magoist Calendar. We are about to pass a threshold and walk into the (M)otherworld. The Magoist Calendar, the book of the Creatrix, summons the Reality of the Creatrix, WE/HERE/NOW, the ultimate destination of human intelligence/spirituality. The Mago Almanac awakens her user to the last reserved revolutionary call in our time, to dismantle the patriarchal calendar and return it to its sender, godfathers. Disassembling the engine of patriarchy, the Magoist Calendar leads its captives to the Mother Time wherein all beings are found kindred. Ultimately, the Mago Almanac is a roadmap to our reunion with the Mother Creator.
This booklet not only introduces the germs and seeds of the Magoist Calendar but also provides the reader with necessary calendric translations. In order to access the seemingly defunct the 28 day/13 month gynocentric calendar, we need to rely on the languages of such 12 months (read patriarchal) calendars as the Gregorian Calendar and the Sinocentric lunisolar calendar with which we moderns are familiar. Through this almanac, we will be versed in both calendars, the 12 months and the 13 months, and measure them in tandem to see which one is rhythmic, which one is nature-based, and which one lifts us up to stay connected with all other beings.
This booklet has three parts: Part I includes 5 charts of 13 month/28 day calendar basics, Part II includes the actual workbook of 13 months with Gregorian dates translations accompanied by Mary Daly quotes from Wickedary, and Part III includes author’s research on the Magoist Calendar based on the Budoji, primary text of Magoism.
Book A (Year 1 and Year 2) stands for the year of 2018 in the Gregorian Calendar (from December 17, 2017 till December 16, 2018) and the year of 2019 in the Gregorian Calendar (from December 17, 2018 till December 16, 2019).
Year 1 (5915 Mago Era) begins on December 17, 2017, the one intercalary day that comes on the day before the New Year’s Day. Its New Year’s day on December 18, 2017 marks the new moon day in the first month of the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.
Year 2 (5916 Mago Era) will be the same as Year 1. It begins with the one intercalary day of December 17, 2018. Its New Year’s day is December 18, 2018. However, it won’t be the new moon day since the moon’s phases are not exactly the same as the moon’s motions for the coming years. For this reason and the Gregorian Calendar’s intermittent dates involved in Book B, Mago Almanac plans to publish its yearly booklet.
