The Solar Cycle

We are in the Solar Cycle of the Kemetic Calendar Year which lasts for a period of 90-days (three 30-day months) - the second cycle of creation.

During this season it is to Geb, Nu, and Ra, and to the Higher Ennead that we pay greater deference

The three months are Geb 271-300, Nu 301-330, and Ra 331-360

The Solar Cycle is the cycle of impregnation and fertilization. It is the time of creating new beginnings by way of creating foundations. During this period we recognize and celebrate the existence and gifts of the Elements Ntcheru (the Higher Ennead) Geb, Nu, Ra. We celebrate the significance of the Elements - Earth, Water, and Sun as the foundation of our existence.

Synchronizing our life with the Elements Ntcheru we till the soil, clearing away debris exposing the Earth to the Sun; we plant seeds in the Earth symbolic of the union of the Earth and Sun; we water the earth (the seeds) symbolic of the union between the Earth and Nu (water), and celebrate the new life that germinates.

We observe the following ceremonies:
Soil & Toil Festival
Seed Festival
Seedling Festival
