Calendar numbers of the Book of Changes.
Information of this page can be interesting for researchers of the Chinese
Book of Changes, and also for people who use hexagrams i-ching as mantic oracle
for occult divinations and predictions of future events. Because according to
ratio of 64 i-ching symbols with 365 days of chronological solar cycle it is
possible to calculate dates of Gregorian calendar and as a result it is possible
to predict terms and numbers of prospective events.
Chronological solar cycle is annual circle of astronomical movement of the
sun with duration of 365 days, that is a basis of contemporary Gregorian
calendar or otherwise to tell international calendar system of chronology which
people use for measurements of time.
Annual cycle of the sun and international solar calendar can be correlated with 64 hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching. Namely hexagrams with serial numbers 1, 2, 63, 64 can be compared with four days of solstices and equinoxes. And sixty hexagrams can be compared to other days of year. If everyone hexagram corresponds to 6 days of astronomical solar cycle, as 60x6=360+4=364.
Total 64 hexagrams there correspond to 364 days of annual solar cycle, and one day is empty and is not connected with symbols of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching.
This empty day can be correlated to 31st of August, and 1st of September can be considered as beginning of annual chronological cycle of the sun, that corresponds with New Year in the Christian liturgical calendar of Orthodox Church, and also with initial date of chronology from creation of the world.
Two empty days of chronological solar cycle at leap-years do not correspond with hexagrams of the Book of Changes i-ching. To these empty days there correspond calendar dates on 31st of August and 29th of February, that is shown on the chart.
|December 22nd is winter solstice, that is
connected with 1st hexagram which symbolizes wintry condition of the
nature and quiet emotions of a human face.
March 21st is vernal equinox, that is connected with 64th hexagram which symbolizes spring condition of the nature and joyful emotional expressions of a human face.
June 21st is summer solstice, that corresponds with 2nd hexagram which symbolizes summery condition of the nature and open facial emotions.
September 23rd is autumnal equinox, that is connected with 63rd hexagram which symbolizes autumn condition of the nature and sad emotional expressions of facial traits.
Look information about ratio of Chinese hexagrams i-ching with logical system of human face and facial emotions of people on pages of this website in section where concepts of the canon of changes are described.
Four seasons within chronological cycle of the sun correspond with rings of
hexagrams. And also four seasons within annual solar cycle correspond with
quarters of magic square according to which hexagrams of the Chinese Book of
Changes i-ching form spatial rings.
Look information about magic square and spatial arrangements or rings of hexagrams of the canon i-ching on pages of this website in section which is named as circles of emotions.
Winter - first quarter of magic square and first ring.
Spring - third quarter of magic square and third ring.
Summer - fourth quarter of magic square and fourth ring.
Autumn - second quarter of magic square and second ring.
For each ring and solar season there corresponds one hexagram which connects with a day of solstice or equinox. And fifteen hexagrams of the canon i-ching are connected with six-days periods during each season.
Sequential order of hexagrams during four seasons corresponds to positions in rings where numerical values form correct magic ratios and proportions. Namely consecutive order during four seasons and positions of hexagrams in rings correspond to the mathematical rule or principle of magic square in which numbers form identical sums on verticals and horizontals.
Magic numerical values of hexagrams on the chart are designated by white numbers in dark circles. And dark numbers without circles specify serial numbers of 64 hexagrams according to sequence in the Book of Changes i-ching.
For example, summer season of solar cycle begins at day of summer solstice on 21st of June, that corresponds to hexagram i-ching with serial number 2 and magic numerical value 25. And six days from 22nd till 27th of June during summer season correspond to hexagram i-ching with serial number 8 and magic numerical value 39.
Or spring season of solar cycle begins at day of vernal equinox on 21st of March, that corresponds to hexagram i-ching with serial number 64 and magic numerical value 42. And six days from 22nd till 27th of March during spring season correspond to hexagram i-ching with serial number 6 and magic numerical value 24. Or six days from 28th of March till 2nd of April during spring season of solar cycle correspond to hexagram i-ching with serial number 35 and magic numerical value 47.
In a similar way by means of the shown chart of chronological solar cycle it is possible to correlate hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching to numbers of magic square and dates of Gregorian calendar in predictions or divinations for calculations of time and understanding of events which will occur in the future. Namely for calculations of calendar dates and understanding of events which can be predicted as a result of predictions or divinations with the Book of Changes i-ching.
And also by means of the shown chart of chronological solar cycle it is possible to correlate dates of Gregorian calendar to physiognomic symbols of a human face, and as a result it is possible to correlate days to characteristics and values of facial emotional expressions which are connected with hexagrams i-ching.
In particular it is possible to correlate days of chronological solar cycle to characteristics of facial expressions of emotions which are described on pages of this website in gallery which refers to the oracle.
Instead of the chart at this page you can use the calendar chronologic table which I bring to your attention on separate page in this section of website.
Chronologic calendar table of solar cycle can be applied together with magic playing
board and physiognomic fortunetelling cards with images of human emotions which
are presented on pages of this website in section which is named as
divinations with hexagrams i-ching are described.
Fortunetelling cards have symbols of hexagrams of the Chinese canon of changes i-ching and physiognomic images of human facial emotions, and also playing board is organized according to mathematical principles of magic square, that allows to carry out divinations and predictions. And by means of the shown table of solar chronological cycle it is possible to correlate hexagrams and images of facial emotions during divinations to dates of Gregorian calendar, that allows to calculate times of predicted events.
Or the offered chronologic table of solar calendar can be used for meteorological weather forecasts, namely for forecasting of natural phenomena and atmospheric processes which are in dependence from astronomical movement of the sun. In this case Chinese hexagrams of the canon of changes i-ching and physiognomic facial symbols mean parameters of natural processes or otherwise to tell rating of emotional conditions of the nature which similarly to human personality is capable to show emotions and can possess mental characteristics.
In particular ratios of natural phenomena and atmospheric processes with lines in hexagram i-ching and emotions of a human face can be the following.
Humidity of air - two top lines and facial emotions of eyebrows.
Humidity of air is the reason of clouds and atmospheric precipitation which are caused by overcast of the sky, that is possible to compare with emotional expressions of eyebrows.
Temperature of air - two middle lines and facial emotions of eyes.
As hexagrams i-ching and physiognomic symbols of emotions are compared to seasons within chronological solar cycle according to emotional expressions of eyes.
Quiet eyes - winter season when temperature of air is low.
Open eyes - summer season when temperature of air is high.
Joyful eyes - spring season when temperature of air raises.
Sad eyes - autumn season when temperature of air decreases.
Force or strength of wind - two bottom lines and emotions of a mouth.
Strength of wind and movement of atmosphere can be compared to human breath and air-blast as a result of which there is sounding of a voice, that corresponds with emotional expressions of a mouth.
Or strength of wind can be correlated to facial emotions of eyebrows, and humidity of air with emotional expressions of a mouth.
Look detail information about ratio of natural phenomena and atmospheric processes with hexagrams i-ching and emotions of human face on the page where calendar table of chronological solar cycle is shown.
It is necessary to consider that logical sequence of hexagrams in the table corresponds to geometrical positions in rings which can have other configurations rather than offered. Therefore it is necessary to coordinate rings with natural phenomena and atmospheric processes in that district or region where weather forecast is necessary.
Or it is possible to predict weather within days of solar calendar cycle according to sequence of hexagrams in the Book of Changes i-ching. Or weather forecasts can be carried out according to the consecutive order and geometrical positions of hexagrams in spheres and chronologic tables which are shown on following pages in this section of website.
In the end of this page it is necessary to tell that rings of hexagrams of the Book of Changes and calendar days in the table of solar chronological cycle can be correlated to concepts of "san gan wu chan" which in the context of Chinese Confucian philosophy mean "three foundations and five constancies". Namely if hexagrams with serial numbers 1, 2, 63, 64 correspond with the center or have positions outside frameworks then each ring has 15 symbols of the Book of Changes, that corresponds with three foundations and five constancies of Chinese Confucian philosophy, as 3x5=15, that is shown in the table.
Four horizontals of the table correspond to four rings and seasons of annual solar cycle.
One left vertical of the table corresponds to hexagrams with serial numbers 1, 2, 63, 64 or numerical values 1, 42, 25, 50 which correspond with calendar numbers of solstices and equinoxes.
Fifteen right verticals correspond with six-days periods of time during four seasons.
Size of each season is 15x6=90 days.
Division of solar seasons into five parts at top of the table corresponds to five constancies or otherwise to tell moral qualities of Chinese Confucian philosophy.
ZHEN - mercy and philanthropy.
LI - observance of ceremonies and rituals.
SYIN - sincerity and kind intention.
YI - justice or fairness and respect.
CHZI - prudence and common sense.
Each moral quality corresponds to three verticals of the table and 3x6=18 days which can be compared to numbers of chronological cycle Haab in the calendar of Mayan civilization. Because solar cycle of Haab in Mayan calendar system consisted of eighteen twenty-days periods or Uinals which in the sum corresponded to 18x20=360 days of one year without five additional dates.
Look information about calendar cycles of the ancient Mayan civilization within other website www.wordgame.64g.ru on the eighth page in section which is named as letters of gods.
Division of solar seasons into three parts at bottom of the table corresponds to three foundations or norms of mutual relations, or otherwise to tell hierarchical pairs of submission in the context of Chinese Confucian philosophy.
Sovereign and official.
Relations in this pair symbolize esteem and reliance.
Father and son.
This pair symbolizes trust and faith.
Husband and wife.
Attitudes of this hierarchical pair symbolize love.
Norms of mutual relations of the Chinese Confucian philosophical system can be correlated to NADEZDA which is hope, and VERA which is belief, and LUBOV which is love in the context of Christian Gnostic philosophy.
NADEZDA and VERA and LUBOV are sacred Russian words which are names of Saint Christian women.
Each norm of mutual relations corresponds to five verticals of the table and 5x6=30 days, that corresponds to 12 months of classical calendar year, as 12x30=360 if to not consider dates of solstices and equinoxes.
Look information about norms of hierarchical relations and moral qualities of Confucian philosophy, and also about numbers 3 and 5 in Chinese numerology on pages of this website in section where physiognomy of human faces is described.
