Lunar zodiac and hexagrams i-ching.
Astronomical phases of the moon and cards of Tarot.

Sectors of lunar zodiac or otherwise to tell ecliptic segments often called as stations or mansions which in essence are 28 parts of astrological circle can be correlated with hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching according to octaves of magic matrix which is shown on the previous page. Namely 56 hexagrams in seven octaves of magic matrix can be correlated to 28 sectors of lunar zodiac, as 7x8=56 and 56/2=28 if to consider that for each sector or ecliptic segment there correspond two i-ching symbols. And hexagrams of one octave can be considered as symbols of eight geographic directions or spatial coordinates, that is shown on the chart.

hexagrams of one octave as symbols of eight geographic directions Each sector of lunar zodiac has size of 360/28=12,857 degrees of of astrological circle.
Consecutive order of 28 sectors of lunar zodiac within astrological circle has initial beginning in zodiacal sign Aries.
Geographic directions or spatial coordinates correspond with cardinal points of astrological circle and form octagonal geometrical figure which is named as "octoscope" in the context of astrology.
It is possible to tell that eight directions or spatial coordinates of octoscope are projections of classical compass winds on astrological circle.
N - north - beginning of zodiacal sign Capricorn.
S - south - beginning of zodiacal sign Crab.
E - east - beginning of zodiacal sign Aries.
W - west - beginning of zodiacal sign Libra.
NE - northeast - middle of zodiacal sign Aquarius.
SE - southeast - middle of zodiacal sign Taurus.
SW - southwest - middle of zodiacal sign Leo.
NW - northwest - middle of zodiacal sign Scorpio.
Eight geographic directions or spatial coordinates of lunar octoscope are orientations according to which it is possible to design interiors and furniture in living quarters in order with the occult system of Feng Shui. Namely in the context of Chinese topological map of Feng Shui it is possible to correlate furniture in interiors of living quarters to geographic directions not only according to eight trigrams Ba Gua, but also according to spatial coordinates or cardinal points of lunar octoscope within astrological circle and zodiacal signs.
Because lunar octoscope symbolizes orientations of space which in essence is equivalent to astrological houses which are symbols of spatial coordinates according to which zodiacal signs on heavenly sphere correspond with terrestrial surface of the Earth.

To sectors or ecliptic segments of lunar zodiac there correspond hexagrams i-ching in 1-7 octaves. And cardinal points or geographic directions of lunar octoscope correspond with hexagrams i-ching of 8th octave in the magic matrix, that is shown in the table.

sectors or ecliptic segments of lunar zodiac with hexagrams i-ching in octaves Verticals of the table correspond to eight cardinal points or geographic directions of octoscope.
Horizontals of the table correspond to eight octaves of magic matrix.
Pay attention that logical order of octaves differs from the table which is shown on previous page, because octaves of magic matrix in this case are connected with astrological circle and sectors of lunar zodiac.
Cells of the table shows images and serial numbers of hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching, and also physiognomic symbols of human facial emotions.
Red numbers in cells of the table show ratio of hexagrams i-ching and physiognomic symbols with sectors of lunar zodiac.
Also cells of the table specify suits and numerical values of predictive fortune-telling cards of minor Arcana of Tarot. Namely four suits and fourteen numerical values correspond to 4x14=56 hexagrams i-ching in seven octaves of the shown magic matrix. And also suits and numerical values correspond with sectors of lunar zodiac, that can be used in occult divinations or card-reading with Tarot.
According to ratio of minor Arcana with astrological sectors of lunar zodiac and hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching it is possible to interpret mantic meanings of Tarot fortune-telling cards in occult divinations and predictions.

Latin letters in designations of numerical values of fortunetelling cards of minor Tarot Arcana have following meanings: A - Ace, J - Jack, C - Cavalier or Knight, Q - Queen, K - King. Namely alongside with kings, queens and jacks in the deck of fortunetelling cards of minor Tarot Arcana there are cavaliers or knights.
Suits of minor Tarot Arcana too are others rather than in usual playing card decks, namely: clubs - Swords, hearts - Staves or Rods or Batons, spades - Cups, diamonds - Coins or Pentacles.
Cards of diamonds - east and southeast - spring - damp quality.
Cards of hearts - south and southwest - summer - warm quality.
Cards of clubs - west and northwest - autumn - dry quality.
Cards of spades - north and northeast - winter - cold quality.
Ratio of four suits of fortunetelling cards of minor Tarot Arcana and sectors of lunar zodiac with seasons of annual solar cycle and qualities of world elements are shown on the following chart.

suits of fortunetelling cards of Tarot Arcana and seasons of annual solar cycle Quarters of circle on the chart correspond to four world elements and seasons of annual astronomical solar cycle.
Aries - 20th of March - east E - spring or vernal equinox - elements of water - combination of cold and damp.
Crab - 21st of June - south S - summer solstice - elements of air - combination of damp and warm.
Libra - 23rd of September - west W - autumn equinox - elements of fire - combination of warm and dry.
Capricorn - 21st of December - north N - winter solstice - elements of ground - combination of dry and cold.
Initial beginning of lunar zodiac is connected with zodiacal sign Aries and astrological point of spring or vernal equinox.
To each sector of lunar zodiac there correspond two hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching. In particular to the first lunar sector there correspond two hexagrams with serial numbers 50 and 35.
Initial beginning of lunar zodiac according to rules of astrology can be correlated with position of the sun in celestial birth map or horoscope of a person.
If to consider that each sector or ecliptic segment has duration of 13 days then lunar zodiac can be correlated with chronological cycle of the Qumran calendar which is described on 2nd page in this section of website, as 13x28=364.

Also astronomical phases of the moon can be correlated with hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching and octaves of magic matrix alongside with sectors of lunar zodiac. Namely astronomical phases of chronological cycle of lunar month which has duration of 29,5 days.
First phase - seven days from new moon to half of increasing or young crescent - Tarot cards of spades or Cups.
Beginning of the first lunar phase corresponds to north N and winter solstice.
Second phase - seven days from half of young crescent to full moon - Tarot cards of diamonds or Pentacles.
Beginning of the second lunar phase corresponds to east E and spring equinox.
Third phase - seven days from full moon to half of decreasing or old crescent - Tarot cards of hearts or Rods.
Beginning of the third lunar phase corresponds to south S and summer solstice.
Fourth phase - seven days from half of old crescent to a following new moon - Tarot cards of clubs or Swords.
Beginning of the fourth lunar phase corresponds to west W and autumn equinox.
Altogether 7x4=28 days plus one day and 12 hours in the end of chronological cycle before beginning of a new moon, and in total 29,5 lunar days of one month.
Two hexagrams of the Books of Changes i-ching correspond to each lunar day.
The shown chart specifies formal ratio of four astronomical phases of lunar month with geographic directions of world space and seasons of annual solar cycle, but actually chronological moments of new moons from the view point of astronomy and astrology are connections of the moon with the sun. Therefore beginning of this or that concrete lunar month is necessary for correlating to the moment of astronomical connection with the sun. For this purpose it is possible to use lunar calendars and astronomical tables at reference books or directories where dates of new moons are written.
Besides digital combinations or ciphers of dominoes tiles can be correlated with octaves of magic matrix and hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching, and also with astronomical moon phases and sectors of lunar zodiac, that is shown in the following table.

digital combinations or ciphers of dominoes tiles with octaves of magic matrix The shown table is a magic square as ciphers of digital combinations of dominoes tiles in cells form regular mathematical sums.
Top ciphers of dominoes on each horizontal form number 21 as mathematical magic sum.
Bottom ciphers of dominoes on each horizontal too form number 21 as mathematical magic sum.
Ciphers of dominoes on each vertical form number 24 as mathematical magic sum.
Look information about magic squares and mathematical systems of dominoes on pages of other website www.dominoopen.64g.ru.
Red numbers in cells of the table specify parities of dominoes tiles with sectors of lunar zodiac which has beginning in the point of spring equinox within astrological circle.
Dark numbers in cells of the table specify parities of dominoes tiles with phases and days of astronomical lunar month which has symbolical or otherwise to tell formal beginning in the point of winter solstice within astrological circle.

First bottom horizontal - seven days from a new moon to half of young crescent - winter - fortunetelling cards of Tarot deck of spades or Cups.
Second horizontal - seven days from half of young crescent to a full moon - spring - mantic cards of Tarot deck of diamonds or Pentacles.
Third horizontal - seven days from a full moon to half of old crescent - summer - predictive cards of Tarot deck of hearts or Rods.
Fourth top horizontal - seven days from half of old crescent to a new moon - autumn - conjectural cards of Tarot deck of clubs or Swords.
The table corresponds to digital combinations of classical complete set of dominoes tiles which are formed with ciphers from 0 to 6. But also octaves of magic matrix and hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching, and also astronomical phases of a moon month and ecliptic sectors of lunar zodiac can be correlated with dominoes which are formed with digital combinations of ciphers from 0 to 7, that is shown in the following table.

tiles of dominoes with lunar octoscope or geographic directions of world space Eight tiles of dominoes above line correspond to cardinal points of lunar octoscope or geographic directions of world space and hexagrams of eighth octave in the magic matrix.
Twenty eight tiles of dominoes under line correspond to hexagrams i-ching of 1-7 octaves in the magic matrix, and also to days of astronomical moon month and sectors of lunar zodiac.
Tiles of dominoes above line are doubles, and under line are fractions.
Dark numbers in cells of the table correspond to days of astronomical lunar month where new moon has symbolical ratio with winter solstice and zodiacal sign Capricorn within astrological circle. And day of a full moon has symbolical ratio with summer solstice and zodiac sign Crab.
Red numbers in cells of the table correspond to sectors of lunar zodiac which begins on the day of spring or vernal equinox in zodiacal sign Aries within astrological circle.

Look detail information about ratios of Chinese hexagrams i-ching of the Book of Changes with astronomical phases of the moon and sectors or ecliptic segments of lunar zodiac, and also with mantic fortunetelling cards of minor Arcana of Tarot deck and ciphers of dominoes in the calendar.

calendar of the moon

Besides this calendar shows ratios of chronological periods of astronomical lunar cycle with physiognomic symbols of human facial emotions which correspond with Chinese hexagrams of the Book of Changes i-ching .
With names and mystical meanings of Cabbalistic symbols which in the context of esoteric concepts of occult Cabbala correspond to 28 days of lunar month.
With names of heavenly stars and celestial constellations which are known in modern astronomy, but which correspond to characters or personages of ancient Greek myths and asterisms of medieval Arabian astrology.
With names and mystical meanings of 28 Chinese celestial Sieou which corresponded to ecliptic sectors of lunar zodiac in astrology of ancient China.
Also with names and mystical values of 27 celestial Indian Nakshatras which correspond to days of draconic month of astronomical moon movement, but in the context of contemporary Hindu astrology are coordinated with 28 sectors of lunar zodiac.
Ratio of 28 sectors of lunar zodiac, also 28 Chinese celestial Sieou and 27 Indian Nakshatras with degrees of zodiacal astrological circle are shown on the chart.

Indian Nakshatras with degrees of zodiacal astrological circle on the chart

Each sector of lunar zodiac has size of 360/28=12,857 degrees.
Chinese celestial Sieou form non-uniform system and correspond to sectors of lunar zodiac approximately. Because for Chinese astronomers and astrologists there were no important angular sizes of sectors, but stars and constellations in this or that Sieou mattered. Namely borders of sectors on celestial maps of ancient China were any, but stars within everyone Sieou were considered.
Everyone Nakshatra has size of 360/27=13,333... degrees.
Indian Nakshatras have other ratio with degrees of zodiac astrological circle rather than sectors of lunar zodiac. But astrologers place additional Nakshatra in space between 23rd and 24th Nakshatras for unification of two systems. Namely astrologers unite sectors of lunar zodiac with complex of Indian Nakshatras also with non-uniform system of Chinese Sieou in space of zodiacal astrological circle.
Additional Nakshatra is ABHIJIT in zodiac sign Aquarius.
Therefore beginning of New Year in traditional Chinese calendar is day of new moon in zodiac sign Aquarius, that coincides with position of ABHIJIT in space of astrological circle.
Beginning of consecutive order of 28 celestial Sieou in ancient China was MAO, also beginning of sequence of 27 heavenly Nakshatras in India was KRITTIKA, that corresponds to the star cluster of Pleiades.
Pay attention that point of ABHIJIT and star cluster or congestion of Pleiades in Nakshatra KRITTIKA are symmetric concerning horizontal axis of astrological circle.
It is possible to assume that astronomical point of spring equinox of ancient historical eras corresponded with star cluster of Pleiades, and consequently Indian Nakshatra KRITTIKA and Chinese Sieou MAO were initial in consecutive order. But now Sieou MAO and Nakshatra KRITTIKA correspond to 5th sector of lunar zodiac, that is caused by precession of the Earth axis or forestalling of equinoxes.
Therefore initial first sector of lunar zodiac according to rules of contemporary astrology correspond with Indian Nakshatra UTTARA BHADRA and Chinese Sieou TUG PEIH which nowadays correspond with point of spring equinox and beginning of astrological circle.
Sectors of lunar zodiac are connected with point of spring or vernal equinox, and consequently have displacement during astronomical precession of the Earth axis concerning Indian Nakshatras and Chinese Sieou which are motionless in space of star sky.
Also signs of zodiac are connected with point of spring equinox. Because beginning of astrological circle and first zodiacal sign is Aries which according to rules of astrology is compared with point of spring equinox.
Now zodiacal sign Aries and celestial constellation Aries approximately coincide, but had difference at last historical eras. Also in the future position of spring equinox will vary, because signs of zodiac during astronomical precession of the Earth axis have displacement concerning real star constellations, and as a result chronological epochs of human civilization change, that is described on pages of this website in section which is named as astro-psychophysiology.
Read additional information about astronomical and astrological complex of heavenly Indian Nakshatras in the context of other website www.labyrinthgallery.64g.ru on 9th page in section which is named as constitutions of human body.
Pay attention that ancient Indian books have information about holiday of spring which began when full moon appeared at West in zodiacal sign PHALGUNI. Therefore beginning of sequential order of 27 0r 28 Indian Nakshatras should be UTTARA BHADRA which is opposite to UTTARA PHALGUNI in space of astrological circle. Because according to rules of astrology and astronomy if the moon is full at West and corresponds with UTTARA PHALGUNI then the sun is at East and corresponds with UTTARA BHADRA, that corresponds to day of vernal equinox and beginning of spring, also zodiacal sign Aries and beginning of astrological circle.

Following page shows ratio of hexagrams i-ching of the Chinese Book of Changes with the chronological cycle which is connected with astronomical movement of Uranus and the point of life in astrological birth maps or horoscopes of people.
