Metonic Cycles chart conversion to Qumran Calendar.

If you want to determine the date to use in the Qumran calendar, try converting it to metonic cycles.

Every 57 years, there are exactly 705 moons per 3 metonic cycles in both the Qumran Calendric sign and the calculations of metonic cycles.

There is a "gap" in the calculations where the full moon no longer exists immediately below the virgo constellation but jumps to another location after the spring equinox.  Hence the switch to the April dates instead.  This "gap" can be coordinated with true time anyhow despite the change.

Here is the link for the outline version of the Qumran calendar.
