This 40-page, full-colour, 13-month calendar consists of introductory and advanced articles as well as charts, poetry and wisdom teachings. It is designed for use in both northern and southern hemispheres. Each monthly presentation consists of daily and hourly colour-coded charts of lunar placements in the zodiac as well as solar, lunar, and planetary interrelationships. The easy-to-read pictorials on these charts include lunar phases, apogee and perigee and lunar nodes. The reader can quickly catch on to how these elements influence plant growth and reproduction. For more advanced biodynamic practitioners, there is a column listing angular relationships between planets which identify auspicious times conducive for seed saving. Specific days are identified for applying biodynamic preparations such as BD500 and BD501. This calendar also includes a collection of wisdom teachings around the lunar rhythms as well as a column on how to work with lunar phases. To balance out this analytical information, the document has 15 original paintings that enhance the artistic and creative flavour of this document.
