The 2010 Astrotheology Calendar—brought to you by Astrotheology Press, a division
of Stellar House Publishing—provides valuable and amazing information about holidays celebrated from ancient
times to today that are largely based in astrotheology and nature worship. In addition to recording a number of
fascinating celebrations from a variety of cultures marked on various days of each month, the Astrotheology
Calendar highlights certain dates in the accompanying explanatory text. These highlighted days include the
solstices, equinoxes and "cross-quarter days," as well as various dates that reflect important developments in the
field of comparative religion and mythology.
For example, many people nowadays know that "Christmas" is not really the day
when Jesus Christ was born. Rather, Xmas is a remake of an ancient winter-solstice celebration. In the
Astrotheology Calendar are included a number of other important winter-solstice celebrations, such as the
births of Mithra and Horus-Aion, as well as that of the Japanese sun goddess Amaterasu. Also explored in this
calendar are many other revelations of how Pagan festivities celebrated in such places as Rome, Greece, Egypt
and the British Isles, were likewise Christianized by the Catholic Church.

Gospel According to Acharya S and Jesus as the Sun throughout History, there has never been anything

"Historical accuracy recaptured...in a calendar!"
"History has always been written by the victors. For nearly two thousand years
the victors in Western Civilization's war for souls has been Christianity. They have forged
artifacts, historicized past events, and rewritten history to suit the needs of those in power and
in control of the clergy. The 2010 Astrotheology Calendar takes a significant step in
recapturing this lost historical accuracy. So much of the history of Pagan religions, thought
destroyed by the attempts of people such as Emperor Theodosius and the violent censuring mobs of
Christian zealotry, is once again regained here in this wonderfully informative document.
"Each day of each month reveals new celebrations that long predate Christianity
and yet were usurped by the social engineering efforts that were so crucial to the Christian myth.
For those interested in historical accuracy, and for those simply curious as to the origins of the
many holidays that we take for granted today, The 2010 Astrotheology Calendar is a must
"For those of us who want to learn more about the many religions shared by
humanity over thousands of year, this calendar is a must have. Each day documents various holidays
associated with religions around the world. The 2010 Astrotheology Calendar serves as a
visual reminder of the connections between religions including Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism,
Christianity and Islam.
"I especially appreciated the information provided at the end of the calendar
including explanations of the events listed for each month, as well as the cool stuff and
interesting websites. Well done Acharya, and thanks for your all of your efforts!
"I absolutely love this calendar!!!"
Jim & Elisabeth Biernik, US
"Outstanding in all ways!"
"The Astrotheology Calendar is a brilliant concept! The 23 pages of
text enable one to have an even broader understanding of the history of astrotheology not covered
by Acharya's previous works, by focusing on celebration dates, holidays, festivals and their
evolutionary changes being usurped by later religions, such as Christianity.
"All these pages of calendar text covers a broad spectrum of topics from basic
introductory explanations for beginners to a variety solar and lunar calendars. Also includes brief
explanations of a variety of religions and their calendars such as the Egyptian on page 6 or
Zoroastrian on page 10.
"I found the information concerning the 'Solar festivals' marking the solstices
& equinoxes and the 'Celtic Fire festivals' marking the peak of each season especially
interesting since it was new to me. These dates making "Wheel of the year" or "Sunwheel" are
highlighted in the calendar by giving that day a color - which I thought was grand because it will
ensure I don't miss it or forget.
"This 2010 Astrotheology Calendar is one of the most helpful tools I've
ever found for my interest in comparative religion & mythology.
"I also appreciated the 'cool stuff' section.
And there are sources for further reading and a bibliography.
"What a totally cool idea!"

"More than just a calendar!"
"More than just a calendar, the 2010 Astrotheology Calendar is packed full of
information explaining what astrotheology is, the various elements involved (luminaries, zodiac,
etc), and what deities they were associated with throughout the ages by different cultures. A small
history behind each month is also offered, providing a nice summary of the major events taking
place, supported by footnotes and sources for further reading.
"It's fascinating to learn what cultures were celebrating what events on your
family members' birthdays.
"A lovely glossy cover and full page colour pictures accompanying each month
tops off a wonderful compilation!"
L. Ruddy, UK
