Notes:

1)       Remember to count February as 29 days on leap years, indicated as “*.”

2)       New moons occur approximately (due to the month length adjustment of 29 ˝ days to either 29 or 30 days) on the same date every 20 years. This perhaps is the reason for the break down of the cycle of 60 years (era) into 20 year increments; each increment assigned a Luoshu number.
