Jackals in the Mountains Kemetic Liturgical Calendar August 2018 – August 2019

I have put together a liturgical calendar using the date for my location’s heliacal rising of Sirius (Sopdet), The Ancient Egyptian Daybook by Tamara L. Siuda, and Circle of the Sun: Rites and Celebrations For Egyptian Pagans and Kemetics by Sharon LaBorde.

Here I give the season in bold with the individual month names under their season; each month has a Roman numeral I-IV in parentheses before it as a date in ancient Egyptian is sometimes written month/season/day I Akhet 1, which is the same as Djehutet 1.

Lunar Holidays

For the following I don’t give dates to as I have not looked this info up yet. I find that these can be a little tricky to place in the calendar as a New Moon can come before or after the start of a Kemetic month and a Full Moon some where around the middle of the Kemetic month give or take a few days. Lunar holidays sometimes, and likely will over lap the holidays of the month that they fall in.
