While long-term, exact timekeeping isn't exactly a high priority in most cultures, the second realm has a universal calendar and method for keeping important times, dates, and events straight. There are 12 months in a year, and in each month 5 weeks. Every week is comprised of 7 days. Each Month, Week, and Day is given a name and, generally, there are some beliefs about them, such as their personality and the things best down at those times. Some cultures keep close to these assertions while others think it silly.

Summer starts when the sun rises directly in the east. Without a firm marker as with spring or fall, the first few days of summer can be debated over, especially if someone miscounted the days in spring. While summer is considered working months, due to the intense heat it can also be seen as more sluggish and lazy, like a routine has been made.

Beyond the Basic understanding of months and the things they represent, each week out of a month represents something as well. each week in a month corresponds with a name, even if these are rarely used. When writing a date on official documents, the week name is required, otherwise, it can be left off.
A Spynle week of any month symbolizes both devotion and longevity, almost as if starting something at the beginning is an unsaid promise to see it through till the end. It usually speaks to some kind of passion for whatever has been started, be it a project or relationship.
Tuurnaline weeks speak often of reconciliation and looking to the past. If something is left hanging, a second week is a good time to finish it or fix a past mistake. Tuurnaline weeks are good for seeking advice from elders.
As the third week is a turning point in a month, so are Tazanit weeks turning points in life. Tazanit weeks are perfect times to make changes you normally wouldn't make. They are good for turning life upside down. It is the week to take something negative and turn it positive.
Terkois weeks are generally peaceful weeks. They are protective weeks, centered on finding tranquility in your present. Some consider it a time of finding a new normal after a Tazanit week, while others see it as a time to learn about something new.
being the last week in a month, Agte weeks focus on centering yourself and preparing for new things. they represent strength and courage, both to stay where you are and go out and start something new.
Each of the days also has different meanings. In each week there are 7, just like your own weeks. When writing a date, you can either give just the number of the day, or the name, or both. If a week name was used, then the official requirements are a number 1-7, but most people just give the number in regards to the whole month. i.e, a date can be written like this 1534, Gaaret, Tazanite, Omyx
or like this 1534, Gaaret, 15 Omyx
. In either case, the names can be replaced by their corresponding numbers, in which case the second would forgo Omyx altogether.
Omyx is the first day of the week, and it is the day of protection. These are days of beginnings and productivity, and any project started on these days is protected from dark forces that may try to harm or corrode it over time.
2. PyroteThe second day of the week is often considered firey in a way, one that is bright and warm. however, Pyrote can also burn too hotly, making it susceptible to anger or short tempers.

Alxandret is globally considered a lucky day. Alexandret is the day when gambling stations are maxed out, Ring Fighting
makes most of its money, and chances are taken. On top of that, however, Alxandret is a day of intellectual ingenuity.
The last day of the week is typically devoted to making sure you and the people around you are healthy, both physically and emotionally. If needed, Chrysoll is a day of de-stressing and reconciliation. Any guilts from the week should be aired and apologized for so they don't haunt you into the next week.
