Janus was the god of doorways and new beginnings and his festival was always celebrated in January. That is why, they tell us, the New Year was moved to January. What’s that: a celebration that could not be more equated with the New Year that did not take place at the New Year? Well, “September, October, November, December” tell us explicitly when the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th months used to be, don’t they?


That tell us that that sometime in March is the first month, September 7th month, October 8th month, November 9th month, December 10th month.

Or that the way folks are counting is from one, as they have no concept of zero, and that the event counts as one, so the completion of April counts as the second month.

This is a solar lunar calendar.

This is why in folklore/history, he Caesar pulls his toga over his face. He veils his face.

cf Cloak and dagger.....

The old "dark" age is "ceasing" the "golden" age is unveiled.

Its a rupture or a break. It is a critical moment. Caesar is resurrected as a god by the will of the people. It is ONE.

Caesar dies at Easter. At the end of December the son of a god is born.

That son is Augustus.

Augustus was not in fact Caesar's son. He was his adopted son. The adopted son of a god.

Likewise Jesus was the son of Joseph, he is in effect the "adopted" son of God.

The Caesar Augustus cult was worshiped in the "Chesters". It developed into a solar cult, on the basis of the coin evidence.

Caesar=Chester

The Caesar Augustus was replaced by the Jesus cult.

The remarkable similarities between Augustus and Jesus are covered on many sites.

The transition from Augustus to Jesus was "achieved" by the device of having Saint Augustine (the apostle to the English) convert pagans to Christianity. Saint Augustine marks the end of the Augustus sun cult, in history/folklore the beginning of the mythic dark ages.

This is facinating. Though I wish you would develop it more. I still don't understand where the other months fit in.

I always imagined there was an original ten-month calendar. Isn't that what we are told? And July and August were inserts.

Correct. According to ortho, based on Plutarch and Ovid, you are right. Wiles notes that Ovid has the first month as March, that is when the Vestal Virgins light the flame, which guides Romes fortunes. Still, that won't be enough to get past the disapproving stare of Hats, even if it helps the cause.

At this stage we note we have two new years. The financial one is based on the needs to tax citizens, but in order to successfully tax you require a census of people and property, and some folks will try anything to avoid this.

I was thinking about your proposal last night that the 10-month calendar originally began in March. According to this proposal, July and August would always have been part of the Calendar, and it was January and February that were added.

Something interesting happens when we adopt this proposal.
  1. March
  2. April
  3. May
  4. June
  5. July
  6. AUGUST
  7. September
  8. October
  9. November
  10. December
Notice the highlighted placement of the month of August. It is at the mid-point of the year. When the sun reaches its zenith! It is literally when the sun rises to its most august position.

I consider this definitive.
