      The "Calendar of the Soul"

      The cycle of the year can be a meditation through which you can sense the
      Beings that are behind the changing seasons, and Steiner gave out the
      'Calendar of the Soul' to do this. It's 52 meditative mantras enabling you to
      consciously experience the 'astral' (soul) events occurring within you as
      well as in outer Nature in the course of the year. These are well known to
      many anthroposophists; but the original Calendar published in 1912 ALSO
      contained 12 Images of the Zodiac (to be meditated on to sense the working of
      the 'solar' forces in the cosmos in the day), a listing of the Moon's phase
      and position in the constellations each night (for sensing the 'lunar'
      forces), and a list of saints and other spiritual figures connected with
      specific days of the week. We're presenting all that here. We begin with the
      mantra in the original German and in translation:

      * M A N T R A # 2 0 *
      So fühl ich erst mein Sein,
      Das fern vom Welten-Dasein
      In sich, sich selbst erlöschen
      Und bauend nur auf eignem Grunde
      In sich, sich selbst ertöten müsste.

      So feel I first my Being
      That far from World-Existence
      In itself, itself loses
      And building only out of its own Ground
      In itself, itself must die.

      This week's mantram:
      This week one begins to feel one's self for the first time since 'losing'
      it in the light & warmth of the summer (the "first" in the opening line); but
      along with this is the feeling that oneself, isolated from the world, will
      perish along with all that one attempts to build from self, if that is the
      ONLY basis of one's creations.

      The Sun, according to the Doctor, is under the influence of LEO from
      August 4th to September 7th in our era. The symbolic image of the Lion done
      from Steiner's sketches & indications is attached to this post as a JPEG,
      although it may go through to you or not depending on your settings.
      The Moon positions and phases for the week are listed below along with
      some of the spiritual figures connected with the days.

      Sunday August 11th. Moon Libra. Alexander. Gottlieb. Hermann. Radegunde.
      Susanna. Tiburtius.
      Monday August 12th. Moon Libra. Clara. Hilaria. Sulpicius.
      Tuesday August 13th. Moon Scorpio. Hippolytus.

      P.S. The Moon can be seen next to Venus Sunday night. This is also the time
      of the Perseid meteors which Dr. Steiner spoke of as ushering in the
      Michaelmas-time of the year.
