The 2011 Astrotheology Calendar serves as a basic introduction into the world of astrotheology and solar mythology. In addition to showing lunar phases and astrological signs, this calendar highlights the solstices, equinoxes and fire festivals with a different color for each of the eight relevant days. In our quest to inspire an interest in astrotheology, mythology and archaeoastronomy, we have also provided fascinating information about the astronomical alignments and astrotheological meanings of various archaeological sites and ancient artifacts from around the world.
As examples of this ancient knowledge, this calendar reveals interesting information about the site of Machu Picchu in Peru, as well as Newgrange Tomb/Temple in Ireland, the Konark Sun Temple in India, the Standing Stones of Callanish, France, the Caracol Observatory at Chichen Itza, Yucatan, and the Temple at Karnak, Egypt. Also discussed are artifacts like the Nebra Disk, the Trundholm Sun Chariot, and the Beit Alpha Synagogue Zodiac.
This calendar is actually a book with 36 pages consisting of 12 full-page images, the actual calendar and eight pages of introductory text explaining what we have put together here, covering the following intriguing subjects:
Inspiration for the Calendar-Our Connection to Nature
