1 – Noris – the moon traverses the constellation of Antheria, “The Flowers”. One of the only constellations where multi-colored stars are visible, it signifies the end of winter and the start of a new year.
2 – Tamesa – the moon is in Varkaris, “The Ferryman”. Traditionally, Old World sailors considered it lucky to begin a voyage under the sign of the Ferryman, for it promised calm winds.
3 – Tateli – the moon hangs high in the sky in the constellation of Kynigos, “The Hunter”. Tateli is one of the only months to feature two full moons in most years.
4 – Archeso – the moon journeys through Vounos, “The Mountain”. When the moon sits at the apex of the constellation, old wives’ tales say that its phase will dictate the type of weather that summer will bring.
5 – Mesito – in midsummer, the moon is said to be “in the house of Ati”, “The War Horse”. Tradition holds that bargains and pacts should never be made in the summer heat, for that is when emotions run high.
6 – Arga – as summer ends, the moon “climbs the Ladder” in the constellation of Skala. During this month, the moon does not drop below the horizon and can be seen even at noon.
7 – Hestou – the moon is in the constellation of Spora, “the Sower”. The early fall is commonly seen to be “the lovers’ month” because it represents planning for the future, as opposed to the impetuousness of spring.
8 – Thino – as the weather starts to grow cool, the moon is in the constellation of Katarrak, “the Waterfall”. Often the worst storms come in this month, and bear ill omens for those at sea.
9 – Porou – after the storm seasons, the moon “sits in the Barrel” in the constellation of Vareli. At this time of year, many are stockpiling grain and supplies for the winter.
10 – Stouchei – when winter descends, the moon hangs in a strangely empty space in Damocles’ night sky, devoid of stars. Most call it “the Black”, those familiar with the Old World stories call it Kenos, “The Void”.
11 – Imona – the constellation of Spathia, “The Swords” holds the moon in its cold light in the harshest months of winter. Many refer to an especially cold winter as “sharper than the last”.
12 – Telos – the end of the year finds the moon in Lykos, “The Wolf”. Old World legends talk about “the wolf that eats the years”, and a prosperous year can be said to have “fed the wolf well”.
