Abstract

Calendars are generally used as time markers. However, the Calendar in Java is used for two things, the first is to know the best time to carry out blasphemy, and the second is to know the character and fate of people based on the date of birth. From the dual calendar function, we can see one of its functions and a horoscope. This research revealed the horoscope in Java through the Javanese book Qomarrulsyamsi Adammakna hermeneutically. Steps were taken by covering text, context, and contextual. The results showed that one of the forecastings of good and bad days was done by looking at the “wuku” of birth. On the Javanese, “Wuku” not only contains good days and bad days to do things, but wuku contains the character and fate of people based on their date of birth. Wuku is like a horoscope of Javanese people. There are 30 “wuku” in the Javanese calendar, which consists of 7 days each, just like weeks. The existence of many of these wuku causes us difficulty memorizing the current of wuku. However, the way of determining wuku is by looking at the Javanese calendar. In addition, the Javanese Book Qomarulsyamsi Adammakna contains an easy way to memorize wuku through a kinanthi song.
