Vedic Planner 2012

The Vedic Planner is a monthly calendar that lists the Moon phases (tithi) and constellations (nakshatra) with a planetary ephemeris. It uses the sidereal solar months starting with the Sun entering Capricorn on January 14th.

[In 2022, we had a major upgrade in how we create our planner. The new addition has 18 different time zones. This year, there will be no ephemeris or eclipse dates in the planner itself. As part of the transition to new technology, we will loose a few features (this year) to gain a better calendar for people all over the world.]

This calendar is a mandala of Time that is reshaping our brain to the stellar reality. It is a calendar designed to align us with the solar and lunar motion and awaken us to the frequencies of the stars and planets moving all around us. The vibrations of it attune us to the Universe.

The monthly calendar starts with the Sun entering a sidereal solar sign. Therefore when you look at the calendar the mind is aware of a cohesive energetic time period. This is the way it was done in the ancient world. Each day lists the Moon phase, the star position of the Moon and any change of signs made by the planets.

Below are links to the PDF for you to print yourself.  The Planner is formatted to be printed double-sided and is most functional with spiral binding that allows it to lay flat. The front and back pages are best printed in color (though the whole document on a color option is even better). [on-demand printable version will be available for the US only in approximately one week, otherwise best luck at your local print shop].
