Observations:
The last year of the calendar (2013/2014) occur the addition of the 13th month ("Ciallos Bis") after “Cantlos”. Because no synchronization was found between the solar months and the lunar months on the calendar with the traditional twelve months for this year. The next addition will occur after the period determined by the Coligny Calendar. Now, after this point is possible to calculate the period of thirty (30) years for an Era.

Ordinary correction

Postby Fil.F. » 12 Feb 2015, 01:58

The years of the calendar attached before, it's based on the Coligny Calendar and is an extract from the exact natural cicles of the moon (new-moon to new-moon or full-moon to full-moon). I preferred the first for the reason that it's perfectly sync with sun cicles from the solar calendar (common months). This way, every month of the celtic calendar could have 29/30 days determined by the properly nature. What let us knows about the essence of the month, if "lucky" (mat) or "unlucky" (unmat).

In contrast, the months have pre-defined duration. It's for this reason that the ordinary correction must be applied by addition or subtraction of one day in each month to complete the defined number. This system of correction will reduce the error limits for just one day. This one day stay just in the month of Equos, that could have determined by the nature 29/30 days. What will produce a complete year of 354 or 355 days.

The year attached as example (current year 2014-2015) it's the 4th year of a period of 5 years. From it begining counting two and a half year (2 years and 6 months) will occur the addition of the intercallary month between Cutios and Giamoni, and from that last between Cantlos and Samoni. And so this way, ever will happen on the 1st and 3rd year of the period of five years at each 2,5 year the addition of an intercallary month named Ciallos Bis.

See bellow the example adjusted by the ordinary system:
