The calendar of the Acana is based on the Moon Anker’s cycle. Instead of weeks or days of the week, like Monday or Tuesday, each day throughout the lunar cycle is allotted a special spelling based on numbers 1-31. Example: number Ju, which is the number one, is Jun when referring to the first day of the Moon cycle.
The technique is borrowed over when a certain number of days is mentioned, but only for 1 through 31. I have one cat would be I have ju cat. There is one day. There is Jun day.
Jun can mean either “one day” or “the first day of the month.” Numbers from 32 and up do not apply and are instead spoken in the origin spelling followed by the Masiann word for number, Ninma. Thirty-two days would be Melch-ki Ninma while thirty-one days would be Melch-jun.
