About The Lunar Days

Sources of Information

My first and the most important source of information about the lunar days is the book written by Sergey Vronsky. It was one of the first books on astrology (if not the first) published in Russia after the beginning of Perestroyka. The title of the book, translated from Russian, is "Astrology - Superstition or Science?". It is basically a collection of different bits of astrological information and ideas from various authors.

One of the topics in the book is the interpretations of the lunar days. I remember that these interpretations were associated in some way with Albert the Great, or Albertus Magnus but most recently I couldn't find any details about this. As far as I remember, Vronsky's interpretations are based on those by Albert the Great.

I am planning to gradually translate for you all the interpretations given by Vronsky, including those that mention the characteristics of children that were born during this or that lunar day. Now that you can generate a lunar calendar for any month from the year 1960 to the year 2020, this makes sense.

Since the first version of the online lunar calendar was created for the Russian audience, the second source of information was natural and obvious - the writings of Pavel Globa. Globa is definitely the most well known astrologer in Russia. If you stop anyone in the streets of Moscow, or some other Russian city, and ask them for an astrologer they know of, I am sure almost everyone will mention Globa. And probably nobody else.

Globa's astrology school was very prominent in Russia in the 1990s. I am not sure if it is still active now but Globa isn't forgotten, that is for sure. Globa states that his astrology has its source in Avesta, the sacred book of Zoroastrianism. However, many knowledgeable Russian astrologers stated that Globa's astrology has nothing to do with Avesta.

Globa uses a large number of various planets, asteroids, fictional planets and stars in his astrology, as well as some techniques that are close to those of the European Medieval Astrology. Many interpretations by Globa speak about sins, demons, vampires and other dark things. This is perhaps the main reason why I don't like his approach - but many, many other people do like it. So I will translate for you everything that I have about the lunar days written by Globa. This will be not an easy work however, I will do the translation bit by bit, gradually adding more information to this article.

My original brief interpretations of the lunar days, which you see when you hover your mouse over the lunar calendar's symbols, also have the third source of information - Vedic astrology. Several years ago, when compiling the interpretations, I was able to find some information about it and I used it. Since then, however, I lost the link to that information. I also received an email from an apparently knowledgeable person who stated that some of the Vedic interpretations are not correct. As a result, I have decided not to provide any Vedic interpretations in this article - I am simply not competent at them at the moment. However, I have also decided to leave the original brief descriptions as they were written. At that time, they were approved of by the authors of a website devoted to Vedic astrology.

If with time I will acquire more knowledge about the Vedic lunar days, it will appear in this article in one or another way.

The next section will list all the information that I have for the First and Second Lunar Days.
