SOULFUL SPARKS Weekly eCALENDAR
Your Soul’s Companion
for the Journey through the Seasons
TUNE IN. KNOW THYSELF. BE INSPIRED.
Life is a journey of self-discovery. Each year, we are given opportunity anew to embark on a soulful pilgrimage. We are invited to participate in the dance of the Universe. As the Sun visits individual constellations, the vibrations of the Stars are amplified. The Nature responds to celestial energies with the ever-changing seasons. And the humans are affected too. How does your Soul respond to Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter? Do you feel the shifts within you when the Sun moves from one Zodiac palace to the next one? How do these changes affect your practical affairs?
We use electronic devices all the time. Inject some good spiritual vibes of Light, Love, Life into your daily routine. Allow the Soulful Sparks to nourish and inspire you.

Dance with the breathing cycles of the Earth and the Sky to find your own unique flow in life.
As your companion, the Soulful Sparks WEEKLY eCalendar is based on the actual astronomical data, and will remind you of the new and full Moon phases, the Sun transitions through the 12 Zodiac constellation, the four cardinal Sun positions, and the main pagan and Christian festivals, as well as the Mercury retrograde cycles.
You’ll also find notes on the colors and speech sounds for your journey, based on Rudolf Steiner’s indications for eurythmy, the harmonious movement art. Each day of the week dances with its own planet, color, and vowel sound. Each Zodiac sign shines in unique color and vibrates with the sound of its signature consonant.

Soulful Dance through the Seasons
Have you noticed how a bright sunny day can change your mood? Or how you are delighted by spring blossoms swaying in a gentle breeze?
Human souls breathe with the Soul of our home planet and awaken when touched by its expressions in the seasons of Nature. We are bathed in the sunshine during the day; we are caressed by the Moon, the planets, and the stars at night. We feel the monthly lunar cycle in the flow of our bodily fluids, women and men alike. The Sun’s spiritual energy colors the Earth as the Sun passes through the constellations on its journey through the four key positions in the dance between the Sun and the Earth: Winter and Summer solstices, Spring and Autumn equinoxes.
O, how many of the celestial dances have we, the post-modern humans, forgotten! We tend to ignore the seasons; we adjust the climate of our surroundings with heaters and air conditioners. The “advanced” hum of technology pushed the magic of the Universe into the shadows. We stay up late at nights, not to watch the stars, but to stare at the television and computer screens. We cannot even see much of the planets and the stars in big cities anyway. We are sealed in office and residential buildings with artificial lights and climates: heat lodges in the Winter, ice cubicles in the Summer.
And most of the time, we cannot even open the windows: “For your own safety”, we are advised. The more the über technological society tries to structure our lives into rigid boxes, the more we yearn for the organic flow of Nature.
We are struggling to find our own unique flow in life. The advertisements bombard us with directions on how to feel and what to do throughout the year. The day after the Halloween, all the stores in the U.S. already begin displaying their Christmas fare. The Valentine’s Day merchandise pops up right after the New Year’s Day. The seasonal festivals have become just another marketing tool. There may be monetary gain, but it does not work for human beings because we are not machines. We have a heart, which is more powerful than brain. And we have a Soul, the spiritual seed, nestled in the heart of our human body. We’re fuelled by Light and sustained by Love.
Yes, you are more than your physical appearance and belongings. You are more than your titles and station in society,more than your beliefs and habits. But how do you get in touch with your Soul? How do you nourish this spiritual seed in your human heart?
Breathe, relax, slow down. We all know by now that these are the basic requirements for vibrant health. Take time for weekly, nay, daily contemplation to commune with your Soul. Create a quiet space where you can tune into the insights of the Spirit stored in your beingness.
In 1912, the Austrian esoteric philosopher and spiritual leader Rudolf Steiner published a little booklet, called Calendar of the Soul, with a verse for each week of the year. He suggests that we begin on Easter Sunday, a celebration of Soul’s victory over death, which is the first Sunday after the full moon following the Spring Equinox. The Soul’s annual journey then follows the path of the Sun and the Moon across the sky. The Soulful Week number sequence reflects this starting point. Hence, the first week of January 2018 is a combination of Soulful Week 39 and Soulful Week 40.
While I was reading the Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul for several years, I immersed myself more deeply into its messages at the beginning of December 2014. Each weekend, I take time to contemplate on the current Steiner’s verse, and digest it through my own life experiences and different esoteric practices. I add my sister’s original photo, and wrap my inspired verse and her image with the colors, informed by the insights from the harmonious movement art of eurythmy. Voilà, the weekly Soulful Sparks of Inspiration are born. The Soulful Sparks eCalendar 2018 honors the path set by the Calendar of the Soul, and enriches it by the insights from various spiritual traditions on Moon phases, Sun transitions, and main pagan festivals.
I encourage you to step out of the vicious cycle, imposed by Greed and Pride, and promoted by the post-modern societies. Reclaim your humanity, and nurture your highest potential through Light and Love. Tune into the breathing cycles of the Earth and the Sky to find your own unique flow in life.
