Lunisolar Calendar of the Heavens.

Scroll down for calendar examples.

Short explanation.

This is a Lunisolar calendar, meaning it is based on the movement of the sun and moon. The sun’s influence only determines the start of the day and the seasons.

This calendar does not yet concern itself with seasons and years, ( Except for the beginning of the year) only months and the weekly Shabbat, incorporating the feasts of Yahuah.

The first month of the year, called Nisan, is derived from the equinox (sun) and the rest of the ‘rules’ as stipulated below. The first month of the year is the month that falls closest to the equinox and the full moon is after said equinox. We are referring to the Spring Equinox in March.

This calendar depends on the final confirmation of the sighting of the moon’s first crescent. For short, we refer to ‘Sliver.’ We also call it FVC which stands for First Visible Crescent.

Astrological data is used to project future events. Past events are confirmed as they happen, and changes are made if the sighting changes the astrological information, should it occur. It only affects the month in which it occurs. 

1. a Day starts at dawn with the sunrise and ends the following day at dawn. Sabbath begins at dawn and ends at dusk.

2. a Month starts with the sign of the moon (FVC), the first crescent, announcing the next day is the first working day of the new month. This crescent is hereafter called ‘sign’ or ‘Sliver.’ or ‘FVC’.

3. New Moon day is the day (or two days) following the 29th day of Shabbat. a Worship day is not a Shabbat. The first working day of a month is always the 2nd day of the month. 

4. The first day of the month is known at the end of the New Moon day. New Moon day ends with the sign of the sliver. (FVC) Therefore you can have one or two New Moon days, and the sign shows you the end/last day when New Moon Day (NMD) is over.

5. Shabbat is always on the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th day of the month.
(The in-between phases is an indication only, you have to count from the first sliver to have the precise day)

6. The changeover of a month can be up to 3 days of worship (including the Shabbat) before the new month’s first working day start.
A 30 day month has three consecutive worship days, including Sabbath and a 29 day month has two.

7. All days between the Shabbat on the 29th and the first working day of the month is worship days. (the gates of the Temple are open. The gates are closed on a working day.) 
The gates are always open on Shabbat and New Moon days. Eze 46:1

8. When counting ‘full weeks,’ New Moon days are not counted as days. In other words, New Moon days on month changeover is not counted as part of a whole week.


9. Exo 20:9 Six days shall you labor, and do all your work: 
This does not say the seven-day period does not have ‘gaps’ between them. It merely says that you will not work more than six days continuously. 

And ELOHIYM said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for appointed feasts, and for days, and years:

Gen 1 : 14

Saying: "When will the New Moon be past, That we may sell grain? And the Sabbath, That we may trade wheat? Making the ephah small and the shekel large, Falsifying the scales by deceit, 

Amos 8 : 5

THUS says ADONAI YAHUAH; The gate of the inner court that looks toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the Shabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the New Moon it shall be opened.

Eze 46 : 1

1Sa 20:4 Then said Yahunathan unto El-David, Whatsoever your soul desires, I will even do it for you. 5 And David said unto El-Yahunathan, Behold, tomorrow is the New Moon, and I should not fail to sit with the king to eat: but let me go, that I may hide myself in the field unto the third day at evening.

1Sa 20:12 And Yahunathan said unto El-David, O YAHUAH ELOHAI of Yashar’el, when I have sounded את eth-my father about tomorrow any time, or the third day, and, behold, if there be good toward El-David, and I then send not unto you, and show את eth-it you;

1 Sam 20

This sounds all very complicated, but it is not.

The easy way to understand the logic behind it:

The day after the sliver is seen, is the first working day and the second day of the month.

After 6 working days is Shabbat.

This is repeated 4 times, ie Shabbat on 8,15,22 and 29th day of the month.

From the 29th day you wait for the sliver and repeat.
