    Please I want to know why each Akwasidae date is having different adinkra symbol and their meanings….
    Thank you

      Thank you for your question aQECaa (Achiaa). The Akwasidae dates don’t follow the Gregorian calendar and it can sometimes be difficult to keep track of it. A month is dropped sometimes to keep it in line with the Gregorian calendar. Assigning the Adinkra numbers to it helps to easily follow Akwasidae along with the Gregorian calendar which is used widely. As you can see, the first Akwasidae in 2024 will be January 7, 2024. However because the first Akwasidae in 2023 was on February 5, 2023 it is actually pempamsie and not sankofa. You can clearly see that there is a drop. Not a drop in Akwasidae but with respect to the Gregorian calendar. So in short it helps to keep track of Akwasidae with respect to the Gregorian calendar otherwise one do not need to assign names to the Akwasidae dates. I hope this helps.

        Is our New Year January 7th? Based on the Akwasidae following the Gregorian calendar or the next Akwasidae after the 7th of January?

    My mom pass away and the funeral is Nov 25,it is possible I can’t buried my mom.the Akwasidae fall on the Nov 26

      Very likely qabECna (Kwabena). Ideally you want to be a week before or after the Akwasidae date. Please double check with your local authorities.
