[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Kemetic Calendar Help
« on: May 30, 2016, 08:13:22 pm »
whoa I thought it was on the 30th opps, okay!

Independent Kemetics and other temples calculate it based on different locations than us! I actually think my friend Aubrey is a whole two weeks ahead of us!

Also, when you say III Shomu 2, do you mean Great Festivity in the Holy Places, or did I misinterpret that terribly?

That festival was last month, on II Shomu 22. :) Today, there are no holidays.

The year is divided into three seasons: Akhet ("heat"), Peret ("growing"), and Shomu ("harvest"). They are the seasons refer to the agricultural cycle in Kemet. As Anupu shared, the seasons are divided into four months each, which we either refer to by number (III Shomu, or the third month of Shomu), or by their names (which varied by historical period/region).

The months are each four weeks ("decans") long, and the decans are ten days long. This leads to a 360 day year, with 5 "intercalary days" (or six this year, because leap year).

Hemet is actually writing a book on the calendar right now. One of the perks for backing her book on Kickstarter is a yearly PDF calendar with the festivals as calibrated for the temple. She still allows new backers, so if you contact her via email, I'm sure she'll let you know how to do that!

This post by the Wesir Richard Reidy on another forum describes how to calculate the date.

Kemetic Orthodoxy calculates Wep Ronpet based on the location of Tawy House. That makes Wep Ronpet on August 3rd. Today is 30 May, or III Shomu 2, or Epiphi 2.

There's been a lot of discussion around the 'net lately about the Rite of Parent Divination! I'd love to have some more discussions here, as a resource for current and future members who are considering the RPD.

Questions!
  • What does the RPD mean to you?
  • Why did or didn't you choose to take the RPD?

I personally utilize Sacramento and Boston's many local flowing waters in my Kemetic practice. For me, they embody similar spirits as the Nile, bringing life to those regions.

I am currently working on translations for Ptah, Ptah-Sokar, Ptah-Sokar-Wesir, and Ptah-Tatenen. I'd love to have a proof reader.
