About The Calendar of the Soul
"I regard the Calendar of the Soul as very important. For each consecutive week I have tried to draw up verses for meditation, the effect of which will enable the soul gradually to discover in itself and in its own experiences the connection with the great cosmic constellations.

These formulae for meditation do in all reality lead the soul out of its narrow confines to experience of the heavens. I can assure you that the results of long, long occult investigations are contained in these 52 verses which will enable the soul to find access to happenings in the great universe and thereby to experience the Spirits working in the onward flow of Time.

But if you ponder on the texts of the verses in the Calendar you will discern an element of Timelessness, in rhythmic alternation, an element that is experienced inwardly by the human being, the laws of which run parallel to those of Time in the outer world. Mere analogies do not suffice here.

Each one of you will be able to use this Calendar of the Soul every year. In it you will find something that might be described as the finding of the path leading from the human soul to the living Spirit weaving through the Universe.

The course of the year has its own life which the human soul can accompany and take part in. It may rightly find itself when such a sharing is sensitive to that which changes from week to week, and may feel how it gains strengthening forces from within. One will realize that such soul forces are waiting to be roused by participating in the meaning of the world's journeying and how it unfolds in the course of time. Thus one becomes aware of the delicate but vital threads that unite the soul with the world into which it is born."

Rudolf Steiner
About The Calendar of the Soul


"In this calendar there is a verse for each week composed so that the soul can experience the appropriate part of the year's journey, and something of the life that can thrive in the soul when it is thus united.

Then a healthy feeling of at-one-ness with the course of nature and a strong sense of self can develop, for undoubtedly, the soul bears a yearning to participate in the world's journeying by means of what these verses offer."
Rudolf Steiner
Preface of the second edition in 1918/19
About The Calendar of the Soul Online
The main mission of The Calendar of the Soul Online is to make way for a living relationship towards the Calendar of the Soul as given by Rudolf Steiner.

The Calendar of the Soul Online is an automated, semi-automated and manually driven web based and mobile phone optimized application that consists of 52 meditational verses, aka The Verses of the Week or Weekly meditations, a selection of spiritual observations based on Rudolf Steiner's work, the anthroposophical path of knowledge.

This online edition differs from the original booklet known as The Calendar of the Soul in that, in addition to Rudolf Steiner's original verses of The Calendar of the Soul, German: Anthroposophischer Seelenkalender, it contains an extensive collection of translations in various languages as well as many additional sections containing quotes, affirmations as well as monthly, weekly and daily exercises.

    About Dating plans
    How to use the dating plans *
    "Our desire is to express in the Calendar the objective fact of the birth of the Ego. We reckon from the Mystery of Golgotha, hence from Easter to Easter, not from one New Year's Day to the next. This has been the cause of derision and mockery, because it compels us to reckon with years of unequal length. But in what is unequal there is life; in what is uniform and fixed there is the impress of death, and our Calendar is intended to be a creative impulse for life."
    Rudolf Steiner
    Cologne 1912

    When simply browsing among the verses of The Calendar of the Soul, no particular dating plan is needed. A dating plan's configuration becomes useful when immersing oneself in the verses during a longer period of time as the Calendar of the Soul displays certain verses on certain days and the importance of a plan becomes obvious when following it through the course of the year on a regular basis.

    So, dating plans for the Calendar of the Soul (with one exception mentioned below) follow the Gregorian dates table, which is based upon the Vernal Equinox known as the official Vernal Equinox (dated March 21) and the full moon known as the official full moon (the Paschal Full Moon) - in other words: Western Easter (Easter according to the Gregorian calendar) occurring the day according to the currently used calendars. Some dating plans recognize some annual festivals as indicators (or clues) corresponding to certain verses of The Calendar of the Soul, whereby dating plans can be adjusted. Some dating plans do not. (For more information about dating and adjustments, learn about the different dating plans below).

    The verses (meditations) of The Calendar of the Soul cover the 52 (+/-) weeks of the year beginning at Easter, ending at Holy Saturday, which gives us the possibility of four different numbers of days from Easter to Easter: 350 days (50 weeks), 357 days (51 weeks), 378 days (54 weeks) and 385 days (55 weeks). In the original booklets containing the 52 verses, each verse was either accompanied by a certain date span and/or a given week of the year. The Calendar of the Soul, according to Rudolf Steiner, should always begin at Easter Sunday and end on Holy Saturday, the First Of April dating plan being an exception mentioned below. Such an Easter-to-Easter year he named "The Year of the Self" and the first verse of the 1912 calendar was the verse he assigned to the week beginning with Easter Sunday. This verse he called verse of the first week after Easter.

    When asked about the change of dates from year to year due to the movable date of Easter, Rudolf Steiner emphasized that what mattered was to begin with the first verse at Easter. "The change of dates is not of great importance, since three successive verses of The Calendar of the Soul are kept in the same mood." Whichever dating plan used, this makes way for any reasonably scheduled dating plan to sync with the original intentions of dating The Calendar of the Soul verses, from which the initial dates that can be found in various printed reissues and facsimiles originate.

    When initializing the Calendar of the Soul Online application, the verse of the current week after Easter according to a certain dating plan will always be the one displayed by default. This can also be achieved from within the app when clicking/tapping the Today button or The Calendar of the Soul Online title bar (see the Buttons section for more info).

    There are various dating plans to choose from (see the following sections):
    * The 2019/20 (Current) dating plan
    Since Rudolf Steiner's intention was to begin the Calendar of the Soul's course through the year with the first verse at the movable date of Easter Sunday and ending it with the fifty-second verse the week just before subsequent Easter Sunday, the verses have to be dated differently every year in order to meet his intentions approximately.

    The Calendar of the Soul Online's dating plan of the current year (2019/20), aside from aiming at fulfilling these intentions, goes a step further in that it, as the original dating plan suggests, pays respect to fixing certain verses to recurring festivals such as Ascension, Whitsunday, Midsummer's Day/St John's Tide Day, Michaelmas, Christmas and Lent, which makes this dating plan the one to recommend.
    * The 2019/20 Equalization dating plan
    Since Rudolf Steiner's intention was to begin the Calendar of the Soul's course through the year with the first verse at the movable date of Easter Sunday and ending it with the fifty-second verse the week just before subsequent Easter Sunday, the verses have to be dated differently every year in order to meet his intentions of dating the verses.

    The 2019/20 Equalization dating plan aims at fulfilling these intentions but does not intentionally synchronize with recurring festivals other than Easter. However, it offers the possibility to examine an unexplored, hence still experimental dating method that has a different approach on dating the verses than traditional practice.

    The eclectic Equalization dating plan divides the entire year between Easter and succeeding Easter into 52 equally long periods of time down to seconds, still making both ends meet at midnight between Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday, which is almost impossible to achieve without computing. The aforementioned 350 days, 357 days, 378 days or 385 days that elapse between Easter feasts, gives us four different possibilities of shortened or prolonged weeks (2 decimals): 6,73 days/week, 6,87 days/week, 7,27 days/week and 7,40 days/week.

    Eq is a variable measure with a scale based on percentages whose length is determined by the effective time that elapses between Easter feasts. The Eq interval is a variable measure as well. It is a time segment made of the effective time that elapses between the verses, which is the Year of the Self divided with 52 verses.

    This dating plan requires that the exact dates of Easter occurring every year be known. All the rest has been taken care of by computing certain circumstances that normally would have been necessary to be dealt with manually. In order to follow The Calendar of the Soul in a continuously equable rhythm throughout the years, the Equalization dating plan is the one to recommend.

    The Equalization dating plan does not recognize the annual festivals as indicators (or clues) corresponding to certain verses of The Calendar of the Soul, which makes them coincide with respective verses only incidentally. However, beginning the dating with Easter Sunday, makes each verse related to a specific event be close at hand and using this dating method there will never be a gap between the last verse and the first one to follow.

    Throughout the Calendar of the Soul's Equalization dating plan of 2019/20 the Eq interval (the interval between the verses) is approximately 6 days 20 hrs 46 mins and 9 secs.

    When reading the current verse according to the Equalization dating plan, click/tap the small Eq DP label at the top right hand for extensive Equalization information.

    You are welcome to try out the Eq dating plan and get involved! Is this an acceptable dating method? Does it comply with what you find necessary as a foundation for a reasonable way of dating the Calendar of the Soul verses? Is there something you wish to add or to be changed? Would you like to contribute with your own experiences? Share your thoughts and send an email to the address at the bottom of this page!
    * The 2019/20 Sundays dating plan
    Since Rudolf Steiner's intention was to begin the Calendar of the Soul's course through the year with the first verse at the movable date of Easter Sunday and ending it with the fifty-second verse the week just before subsequent Easter Sunday, the verses have to be dated differently every year in order to meet his intentions of dating the verses.

    The Sundays dating plan will always aim at fulfilling these intentions but does not intentionally synchronize with recurring festivals other than Easter. It is a straight-forward dating plan in that it presents a new verse every Sunday, 52 verses in succession if the number of weeks of the Year of the Self were 52 weeks, which never occurs. If the Year of the Self lasts 50 or 51 weeks, subsequent verses after Easter will override the remaining verse(s) when a new year begins. If it lasts 54 or 55 weeks, it will display the 52nd verse during the remaining week(s) until subsequent Easter. No prolongation of weeks will be applied for any other verse than, if necessary, verse 52. No verse will be disregarded other than, if necessary, verses 51 and/or 52.
    When reading the current verse according to the Sundays dating plan, click/tap the small Sundays DP label at the top right hand for more extensive information.

    The drawback of this dating plan (as mentioned above): There may be more or less weeks than the 52 verses, which you have to deal with by yourself in the best possible way.
    * The 2019/20 First of April (April 1st) dating plan
    Rudolf Steiner mentioned that one could date the verses starting with April 1 to achieve a periodical dating plan running from year to year. This dating plan requires no further planning. One year, according to the Gregorian calendar, has approximately 52 weeks in that 365 days divided by 7 days equals 52.1428571 weeks, on a leap year 366 days divided by 7 days equals 52.2857 weeks. Since the Calendar of the Soul contains 52 verses, this dating plan seems to be straight forward. Nevertheless, being just one of many different ways of dating the First of April variation, there are some adjustments to be made to keep the First of April dating plan proportional toward other dating plans, toward itself and toward leap year occurrences. This version of the First of April dating plan is adjusted to make verses 12, 26 and 38 coincide with St. John (Midsummer), St. Michael and Christmas.
    A significant drawback: This dating plan does not meet Rudolf Steiner's fundamental intentions of distributing the verses throughout the Year of the Self nor do the latest dates of Easter between April 22 and April 25 (when occurring) meet the intention of three verses being kept in the same mood as Rudolf Steiner's initial intentions of dating the verses do suggest. It is therefore not of great interest to follow this plan, which makes it supposedly be of historical interest only.
    When reading the current verse according to the First of April dating plan, click/tap the small April 1st DP label at the top right hand for more extensive information about the distribution of the First of April dating plan.
    * The 1918/19 dates dating plan
    This dating plan differs slightly from the dating plan of 1912/13 below, from which Rudolf Steiner made a specific update for this special edition published to fit the year of 1918/19. The drawback: Current dates rarely coincide with the ones given in 1918/19, which makes this dating plan be of historical interest only. This dating plan requires no further planning.
    * The 1912/13 dates dating plan
    It is also possible to use the original dating plan, which means the original dates that were valid in 1912/13, when the Calendar of the Soul was published for the first time. The drawback: Current dates rarely coincide with the ones given in 1912/13, which makes this dating plan be merely of historical interest. This dating plan requires no further planning.
    How to choose a different dating plan
    Choose either one of the available dating plans of your choice in Preferences after clicking/tapping the CS menu at the top right corner of the verse display box. A dating plan will always persist until change.
    * Your BirthVerse
    BirthVerse is part of the Calendar of the Soul's Equalization and First of April dating plan. The formula simply calculates which date a verse has been or will be the current verse. BirthVerse is part of Preferences. So then, which is your BirthVerse?

    Note: Using different dating plans may, obviously, give different BirthVerses, since every plan has a different approach on how to date the verses. Once saved, the number of your BirthVerse will have a star added after it in the Verse select box and the verse itself will feature a green star at the top right hand side.
    About choosing verses and translations
    How to browse the verses in either direction
    To take advantage of the Navigation Areas, click/tap the left or right side of the verse display box. To swipe left or right instead of clicking left or right, you may also activate the complementary Swipe area which will enable swiping in the center area of the verse display box. This results in elimination of usual scroll and zoom-in/zoom-out gestures. Scrolling will then be enabled on the verse peripherals.

    Swipe areas will only work on the verses section. All other sections will not be affected. However, it is recommended to omit use of swipeable areas.

    For demonstration purposes, change to visible Navigation areas. When Swipe navigation is off, the click/tap areas are active on the left (red) and on the right (blue) half of the verse window, when Swipe navigation is active, the click/tap area is disabled and replaced by the swipe area.
    How to choose a certain verse
    Click/tap the Verse select box on the lower row of the buttons panel at the bottom of the page and make your choice. If you earlier on have chosen a BirthVerse, it will have a star beside the verse number.
    How to choose a different translation
    Click/tap the Translation select box on the upper row of the buttons panel at the bottom of the page and make your choice.
    How to set the favourite default translation
    Your current selection will always be your default translation until you make another choice. This option has been made possible thanks to contributions of donators. Thank you!
    How to only show Rudolf Steiner's original verse in German
    To have no translation displayed at all, click/tap the Translation select box on the upper row of the buttons panel at the bottom of the page and choose Steiner (Deutsch) Only.
    How to make either the original or translated verse appear first
    Choose either Translation first or Original first in Preferences after clicking/tapping the CS menu at the top right corner of the verse display box. This determines if the translation is shown first (above the German original) or the other way around.
    About the panel
    How to make the panel appear/disappear
    Choose either Visible or Hidden panel clicking/tapping the CS menu at the top right corner of the verse display box or swipe downward (if the swipe up/down function has been activated). The buttons panel, while hidden, will become visible instantly, when hovering or tapping over the imaginary area of it. Although it requires some training to find the hidden panel, this function offers a cleaner and more compact look.
    How to use the pin in the Panel
    Pinning the Panel, makes it stay put until you unpin it either on the panel or in Preferences.
    About the panel buttons
    How to use and explain the Today button
    The Today button (T) on the buttons panel as well as The Calendar of the Soul Online title bar will allow you to instantly display the verse of the week that has been assigned according to the currently selected dating plan. This means that if clicking/tapping the Today button or the title bar while another dating plan is active, you may face another verse of the week as the current one.
    How to switch to the corresponding verse
    Click/tap the Corresponding verse button (C) on the lower row of the buttons panel at the bottom to toggle between the pair of corresponding verses. When starting with verse one at Easter for the very first time, it is recommended to omit using the corresponding verse until reaching the 27th verse. The opposite verse will then correspond as the year's second half starts with verse #27. Verse #26 will correspond to it and so on.

    For each week that passes, the corresponding verses reappearing in descending succession, will equally complement the verses in ascending succession. Once this process is chosen to be activated for the first time (preferrably around Michaelmas), every week will have the two corresponding qualities of these verse pairs even thereafter.

    Note: The Corresponding verse may not be confused with the Opposite verse mentioned below.
    How to switch to the opposite (Southern) verse
    Click/tap the Opposite verse button (O) on the lower row of the buttons panel at the bottom to toggle between the pair of opposite verses. For users living in the Southern Hemisphere: In order to start the Calendar of the Soul Online showing the opposite verse (Southern Hemisphere View) by default, bookmark this link.

    The term Southern Hemisphere View is a somehow hypothetical way of approximately reversing the active dating method to fit in the Southern Hemisphere. The verses for the Southern Hemisphere, as dated by The Calendar of the Soul Online, follow the currently used interval of the Northern Hemisphere, reversed to a simple, straight forward Southern Hemisphere displacement. However, Sergei O. Prokofieff, in his "The Cycle of the Year as a Path of Initiation Leading to an Experience of the Christ Being: An Esoteric Study" referred to Fred Poeppig receiving the following answer when Rudolf Steiner was asked about the Southern hemisphere question: "The weekly verses of the Soul Calendar must be switched round to be used in accordance with the seasonal rhythms of the particular locality" and adds that the opposite verse must then be included in order to restore the correspondence.
    - If the original verse/week was to have a number between 1 and 26, then 26 (weeks) are added to the actual verse number (eg 7 plus 26 make 33).
    - If the original verse/week was to have a number between 27 and 52, then 26 (weeks) are subtracted from the actual verse number (eg 33 minus 26 make 7).

    Note: The Opposite verse may not be confused with the Corresponding verse mentioned above.
    About Preferences
    How to adjust the application to your preferences
    Click/tap the (P) button on the panel or the CS triple bar Preferences symbol ≡ at the top right corner of the verse display box (on mobile devices you may swipe upward if the swipe up/down function has been activated). You then will be able to choose from all options available in Preferences.
    How to choose colors/layout to your preference
    There is the possibility to either choose color sets or layout sets. They do not work together. To choose a layout set you must check "Use below layout sets instead!", to choose a color set, simply check the chosen set.
