Hexagrams i-ching and zodiacal circle of Chinese astrology.
Information of this page can be interesting to astrologers and futurologists who forecast political prognoses and predict international events. Because traditional calendar of ancient China corresponds to astronomical cycles of Jupiter and Saturn which according to rules of astrology are imperial planets which symbolize mutual relations of statesmen, namely personify politicians and diplomats who define political interrelations of states and nations.
Traditional calendar in China is the logical system of animalistic signs or
symbols which correspond to twelve zodiacal animals of Chinese astrology. Namely
animalistic signs of Chinese calendar are equivalent to zodiacal constellations
and names of twelve animals which form five 12-years periods of time, and in
aggregate form 60-years chronological cycle, as 12x5=60.
Traditional Chinese calendar is cyclic as twelve zodiacal animals periodically repeat and form 5 chronological periods of time duration of 60 years.
It is necessary to tell that 12-years periods of time are approximately equal to astronomical cycle of thr planet Jupiter in classical astrology. And 60-years chronological cycle corresponds to astronomical cycle of thr planet Saturn. Because the planet Jupiter makes astronomical revolution around of the sun within 11 years and 314 days, that corresponds to twelve zodiacal animals of Chinese astrology. And also Saturn makes astronomical revolution around of the sun within 29,46 years, that approximately corresponds to the chronological cycle of Chinese calendar, as 30x2=60.
Jupiter and Saturn are imperial planets which according to rules of astrology symbolize social development of the states and the international political events.
Besides it is necessary to tell that chronology of traditional Chinese calendar corresponds to 60-years cycles which made big period of Sumerian Saros or 60x60=3600 years in astrology of ancient Babylon and Assyria. And also chronology of traditional Chinese calendar corresponds with sexagesimal system of mathematical notation of ancient Babylon and Assyria.
For five 12-years periods of the cyclic Chinese calendar there correspond sixty hexagrams of the Book of Changes i-ching, and also sixty physiognomic symbols of facial emotions which form five spheres and correspond with five substances of universe. And four hexagrams form a cross which corresponds to four world elements.
Four world elements and cross of hexagrams exist outside of calendar cycle. Namely four hexagrams form a basis according to which animalistic signs of twelve animals of Chinese zodiacs are focused in space. And five substances at sixty hexagrams in five spheres form the chronological basis of Chinese cyclic calendar.
Substances of universe in the context of Chinese philosophy possess interrelations which correspond to the principle of transformation or generation. Namely tree turns to fire - fire in ground - ground in metal - metal in water - water in tree.
Also spatial spheres of hexagrams i-ching form consecutive order which corresponds to the principle of transformation or generation of substances, that is shown on the chart.
|Spheres of hexagrams i-ching form the circle.
Hexagrams of four spheres are interconnected by symmetric geometrical ratios within the circle.
Hexagrams of third sphere have only internal ratios and are not connected with other spheres.
Arrows along the circle show transformations of five substances of Chinese philosophy and consecutive order of five spheres.
Ciphers mean serial numbers of hexagrams in the Book of Changes i-ching.
Lines specify geometrical ratios of paired hexagrams. For example, hexagrams with serial numbers 21 and 22 form pair, that is specified by a line.
Look information about pairs of i-ching symbols on pages of this website in section which is named as circles of emotions.
First and second spheres - eight interconnected pairs: 7-8, 13-14, 55-56, 59-60.
Fourth and fifth spheres - eight interconnected pairs: 23-24, 31-32, 41-42, 43-44.
First and fourth spheres - eight interconnected pairs: 37-38, 39-40, 51-52, 57-58.
Second and fifth spheres - eight interconnected pairs: 5-6, 25-26, 35-36, 45-46.
Fifth and first spheres - eight interconnected pairs: 19-20, 21-22, 33-34, 47-48.
Second sphere - four pairs are interconnected by internal parities: 27-28, 53-54.
Fourth sphere - four pairs are interconnected by internal parities: 11-12, 29-30.
Third sphere - all hexagrams are interconnected by internal parities.
Second and fourth spheres have no interconnected pairs of hexagrams.
All ratios of paired hexagrams within five spheres are symmetric.
According to the shown consecutive order of five spheres it is possible to compare twelve zodiacal animals and 60-years cycle of traditional Chinese calendar with hexagrams of the Book of Changes i-ching and physiognomic symbols of emotions of a human face, that is shown in the table.
|The shown chronologic table is compact, but look on
separate page more detailed and convenient calendar where hexagrams of
the Book of Changes i-ching and physiognomic symbols of human facial
emotions are compared with 60 years of traditional Chinese cycle of
Ratios of twelve zodiacal animals of Chinese astrology and 60 years of
traditional cyclic calendar of ancient China with symbols of the Book of Changes i-ching
can be others. As configurations of hexagrams in five spheres can be different,
and also parities of spheres with substances of Chinese philosophy can be various.
Verticals of the table correspond to signs of zodiac of classical European
astrology and twelve zodiacal animals of astrological system of ancient China.
Horizontals of the table correspond with five substances of Chinese philosophy and spheres of hexagrams i-ching, and also with five colors: tree - blue, fire - red, ground - yellow, metal - white, water - black.
Cells of the table specify serial numbers of hexagrams according to sequence in the Book of Changes i-ching and consecutive order in five spheres. And also cells of the table specify physiognomic images of human facial emotions or otherwise to tell emotional expressions which correspond with symbols of i-ching.
Pay attention that physiognomic images with joyful, open, sad and quiet emotional expressions of eyes in the chronologic table correspond to quarters of astrological circle, namely with signs of zodiac which correspond to four seasons or solar year. Because consecutive order of hexagrams and physiognomic images in five spheres are coordinated with zodiacal structure of astrological circle, namely are organized according to rules of astrology.
In total 12 verticals and 5 horizontals of the shown table correspond to the 60-years chronological cycle of traditional Chinese calendar. Sequential order of 60 years in the table is specified by red figures or ciphers.
For example, hexagram i-ching and physiognomic image with serial number 44 correspond to 47th year in the chronological cycle of Chinese calendar. And also with animalistic sign of dog and white metal which designate zodiacal animal and substance of 47th year.
Five substances or natural elements of Chinese philosophy are equivalent to five primary potentialities in mythology of Ancient Greece.
Natural element or substance of water.
Primary potentiality CHAOS - chaotic state of physical matter or non objective existence of material reality.
Substance of metal.
Primary potentiality EROS - process of creation and transformation of chaotic matter to objective forms of material reality.
Substance of ground or earth.
Primary potentiality GAIA - formal state of physical matter and objective existence of material reality.
Substance or natural element of fire.
Primary potentiality TARTARUS - decomposition and destruction of material reality.
Substance of tree or vital nature.
Primary potentiality URANUS - transformation of physical matter in new forms of material reality.
Look more detailed information about primary potentialities of world reality in myths of Ancient Greece on other pages of this website in section about physiognomy of human faces in profile.
In addition to five substances and twelve zodiacal animals in the traditional cyclic calendar of ancient China there are Ten Heavenly Stems which form six decades or 10-years periods of time during 60-years chronological cycle.
Ten Heavenly Steams in the cyclic Chinese calendar of zodiacal animals are equivalent to ciphers of Cabbala or mystical symbols of ten Cabbalistic Sefirot in the context of Judaism or esoteric Jewish philosophy, and also to planets of solar system in the context of modern astrology.
Pluto - first heavenly steam - keter or ratzon - Supreme Crown or Will.
Neptune - second heavenly steam - chokhmah - Wisdom.
Uranus - third heavenly steam - binah - Intelligence or Reasonable Understanding.
Saturn - fourth heavenly steam - chesed or gedulah - Kindness or Greatness.
Jupiter - fifth heavenly steam - gevurah or din - Severity or Judgment.
Mars - sixth heavenly steam - tiferet - Beauty or Compassion.
Venus - seventh heavenly steam - netzach - Triumph or Lasting Endurance.
Mercury - eighth heavenly steam - hod - Glory or Greatness.
Moon - ninth heavenly steam - yesod or tzaddik - Foundation of Universe.
Sun - tenth heavenly steam - malchut or shekhina - Kingdom or Realm or Diadem.

Except for 60 years of chronological cycle of traditional Chinese calendar in the shown table it is possible to correlate hexagrams of the Book of Changes i-ching and physiognomic symbols of emotional expressions of a human face with 60-days periods of time within one year. Traditional Chinese chronological system of zodiacal animals in this case is equivalent to the cyclic calendar of ancient Egypt.
Because ancient Egyptian calendar had annual duration of 365 days which have been divided into 36 periods of time or decades, and also 5 additional epagomenal dates. Total 36x10=360+5=365 days. And also 60-days periods of time within calendar system of ancient China can be correlated with annual cycle which has duration of 365 days, as 60x6=360+5=365. Namely six 60-days chronological periods and five additional days in the end of calendar year.
Detail information about cyclic calendar of ancient Egypt is given on other website www.numeralgame.64g.ru on 6th page in section which is named as mantic cards.
Following page correlates symbols of the Chinese Book of Changes with astronomical phases of the moon and astrological sectors of lunar zodiac, and also with logical tables in which reconstructions of ancient mantic systems or predictive charts of ancient China are shown.
