CROSS QUARTER DAY POST IMBUILG-ST BRIGITS DAY 2011
Yesterday the 21st the Moon was in the north western sky at 7.15 Am and I was wondering why it was up at all when the callends had passed on the 15th and the moon should be coming up after the morning sun rise.
But the computer did not seem to have any ready at your fingertips information on this ancient calculation. Neither did the Websters dictionary abridged.
But it got me wondering if the calendar we are using is correct in realtion to the actual time month and so forth.
The New moon was in the sky in the morning before the sun came up here at 8.15AM just about 13 hours ahead of the sunrise when it should have been behind the sunrise.
After the 15 the famous ides of the month.
This amount of time between the 21st when it was seen and the 15th is 6 days or 144 hours behind where it should be.
144 hours=9,048 minutes and the seconds are to much for me.
I need a sailor in my life.
1 degree = 60 minutes [ 1 hour]
1 minute = 60 seconds
1 degree= 3600 minutes
one circle = 360 degrees
But I think the moon revolves around the earth as an elipse not a circle. Our oval egg.
However this deviation or slowness of the moon by 6 days in its revoltion regarding the ancient callends/Ides calculations is probably the major cause of the heavy snow. Unprecidented under earth flooding of fresh waters.
The lack of the usual winds we have been experiencing and the darkness in the mornign rather than some act of our sins in relation to god and the devil.
It is charachteristic of animals to be upset and hysterical when there are planitary or weather changes, hence man is probably no exception and some of the what seems to be, increase in group violence across the world this winter are more or less animal reactions to changes
we are not aware of. Awareness creates control.
Understanding enlightenment .
Last evening about 9.30 when looked out here is this nice full moon in the central eastern sky about 11 hours before the expected sunrise here at around 8.15 on the 22 Jan.
The calendar here says the full moon was to be on the 19th ,but it is on the 21st 4, days after the calendar entry.
I would trust the planitary movements more than the Pope Gregory calendar which probaly needs to be updated by NASA.
The calculations for the 2011 Imbuilg quarter day observations are as follows:
NOV 1-30 2009 30 DAYS
DEC 1-21 21
51 DAYS FROM SAMAIN QUARTER TO WINTER SOLSTICE 2009 correct
DEC 21-31 10
JAN 1-31 2010 31 FROM WINTER SOLSTICE TO FEB 2010 IMBUILG 41 FROM WINTER SOLSTICE TO FEB 2010 IMBUILG correct
FEB 1-28 28 DAYS
MARCH 1-20 20
48 THE NEW MOON AT THE SPRING SOLSTICE correct
MARCH 20-31 11 DAYS
APRIL 1-30 30
41 TO MAY 1 THE BEALTAINE QUARTER DAY correct
MAY 1-31 31 DAYS
JUNE 1-21 21
52 THE SUMMER SOLSTICE 2 DAYS LATE
JUNE 21-30 9 DAYS
JULY 1-31 31 DAYS
40 DAYS AFTER THE SUMMER SOLSTICE TO QUARTER DAY LUGNASA AUG 1 correct
AUG 1-31 31 DAYS
SEPT 1-23 23 DAYS
54 FROM LUGNASA TO FALL SOLSTICE 4 DAYS LATE FROM THE CALCULATIONS 50
SEPT 23-30 7 DAYS
OCT 1-31 31
38 DAYS 2 DAYS SHORT OF 40 FROM THE SOLSTICE TO SAMAIN QUARTER DAY
NOV 1-30 30
DEC 1-21 21
51 DAYS FROM SAMAIN TO THE WINTER SOLsTICE 2010* correct
DEC 21-31 10 DAYS
JAN 1-21 2011 21
31 DAYS FROM WINTER SOLSTICE TO THE NEW MOON THAT I THINK IS INCORRECT
JAN 21-FEB 1 10 DAYS
31 DAYS OF THE NEW MOON JAN 21 2011
41 DAYS FROM THE WINTER SOLSTICE TO IMBUILG 2011
These new moons on the calendar are arriving at erratic times
Jan 21 2011 10 days before the quarter of Feb 1
Oct 23 2010 8 days before the Nov 1 quarter
July 26 6 days before quarter of August 1 2010
April 28 2 days befoe May 1 quarter
Jan 30 2010 1 day before the Feb quarter 2010
So the progression of the new moon has been from 6 to 8 to 10 days before the quarter days since July 2010 to January 2011.
I think this indicates the moon is revolving faster than it did at the time of the calculations of the ancient Irish clock.
The 2010 winter solstice was not seen on Dec 21 at Bru na Boine.
It was cloudy but that may well be the solstice did not arrive on December 21 2010 but at later or earlier date.
This tourist date of December 21 is based soly on the written calendar we use not the actual observation of the position of the moon.
The figures presented here are mostly from the calendar for 2010 as listed and none of the 2010 moons were observed either because of cloudiness, the oil spill, or simply trusting the calendar dates.
We need to keep better track or get information from NASA etal as to the activities and motions of our nearest neighbor in space and time, and the basis for all our calculations as to months, days, hours, seconds and degrees.
There are 4 moons with no valuation in the 12 months betwen the cross quarter day calculations made by the ancient Irish.
What are these.
Cad beid iad seo?
If you use the calandar days from this Imbuilg crossing till the spring solstice for March 20 2011 the total is
28 days feb
20 days march
48 days 2 days short ofthe 50 days of the old calculations
If you use the Jan 20 full moon observation that would be
48 days calendar dates
10 days observation of the moon itself
8 days more than the old time.
This would correlate with the 8 days difference in the callends/ides moon positions.
The moon being visable 6 days after the ides or about a week late making the date of the siting actually a week earlier than the calender January 8 or 9th 2011.
On the the hill of the hags in Meath in March to see if the light shines in the old carn on the right day.
