When he introduced The Calendar of the Soul in 1912, Rudolf Steiner described how it contained new images that “differ from those handed down by tradition, because the latter are no longer suitable for modern consciousness. These pictures of the Zodiacal constellations are representations of actual experiences connected with the waking and sleeping of particular spiritual beings. We have in these pictures a renewal of certain knowledge that needs to be renewed at the present time...”
The images were created by Rudolf Steiner's colleague Imma von Eckardstein, based on his direction that she meditate on the after-image that rose up in her once the sun broke the horizon each morning, bearing in mind that the sun gradually moves through different regions of stars as we make our way through the year.
Each month we focus on the image that corresponds to the region of sky where the Sun is, to enhance our experience of the different starry regions through which the Sun moves month-by-month.
