Moon's days and hexagrams i-ching.
Chronologic table of lunar zodiac.

Stars and celestial constellations in astrological circle.

This page shows chronologic table or lunar calendar in which astronomical phases of the moon are correlated with zodiacal signs within astrological circle, also with celestial constellations and stars, with hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching and physiognomic symbols of emotional expressions of human face, with ciphers of dominoes and minor Arcana in decks of Tarot fortune-telling cards.
First column of chronologic calendar table specifies serial numbers of 28 celestial sectors of lunar zodiac and astrological degrees of 12 zodiacal signs. Also names of stars and celestial constellations which correspond to zodiacal signs and sectors of lunar zodiac within astrological circle. Names and mystical meanings of Cabbalistic symbols which correspond to days of lunar month in occult philosophy of Jewish Cabbala. Names and esoteric meanings of Indian Nakshatras and Chinese Sieou which designate celestial sectors of lunar zodiac.

meanings of Indian Nakshatras and celestial sectors of lunar zodiac

Second column of chronologic table specifies phases of the moon and serial numbers of days of astronomical lunar month, and also ciphers or numerical values of dominoes. Namely Arabian figures specify numerical values of classical dominoes from zero to six. And Roman figures correspond to ciphers of dominoes from zero to seven.
Third and fourth columns of chronologic table shows hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching and physiognomic symbols of facial emotional expressions, also suits and values of 56 fortune-telling cards of minor Arcana of mantic Tarot.
To each day of lunar month and zodiacal sector there correspond two hexagrams i-ching which are corresponded with dark and light time.
Dark time matters Yin and proceeds from midnight till midday. Light time matters Yang and proceeds from midday till midnight.
In the end of month there is time of invisible moon which is not included into number of 28 lunar days.
If astronomical conjunction with the sun and new moon occurs at nighttime then beginning of lunar month is sunrise which finishes this night. And if new moon occurs at daytime then beginning of lunar month is sunset of this day.
For example, if tables of astronomical reference book specify that new moon will occur at 3 o'clock of nighttime, and the sun will ascend above horizon at 5 o'clock in the morning. It means that first day of lunar month begins at 5 o'clock in the morning and corresponds to light time. And if tables of astronomical reference book specify that new moon will occur at 2 o'clock of daytime, and the sun will come out of horizon at 11 o'clock in the evening. Then it means that first day of lunar month begins at 11 o'clock in the evening and corresponds to dark time.
Or it is possible to use division of time on antemeridian AM and postmeridian PM. Then first day of lunar month begins at midnight and corresponds with hexagram of dark time in the shown chronologic table if a moment of new moon has designation PM. Or first day of lunar month begins at daytime and corresponds with hexagram of light time in the chronologic table if a moment of new moon has designation AM.
