Place the Sun at the center; the Elements (Tetrahedron) around that; the Planets (Hexahedron) around them; & the Zodiac (Dodecahedon) encircling those. The values thus derived are used in conjunction with the 7 keys of METATRON to obtain the Planetary Orbits & Synodic Cycles.

Every 8 years Earth & Venus complete a pentagonal synodic series.

72° x (Elements=5)
17: Aquarius = 8
18: Pisces = 9


METATRON Key: Venus = 23 ( 4 + 5 + 8 + 6 )

127 = 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 17 + 18
73 = 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 2 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 8 + 9

584 = 73 x 8


583.92 = Earth-Venus Synodic Period
365 = 73 x 5


365.25 = Earth Orbit
225 = (73 x 3) + 6 (Elements=5 + Sun=1)


224.65 = Venus Orbit

Venus:Earth Synodic Cycle = 5:8:13
5 x 583.92 = 2919.6


5 x 584 = 2920
8 x 365.25 = 2922


8 x 365 = 2920
13 x 224.65 = 2920.45


13 x 225 = 2925

Average = 2920.68


Avg.= 2921.666666

5x 8x 73 = 2920


0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55


> φ
23x 127 = 2921


72° x 5 = Pentagram


> Phi

2552 / 88 = 29 (see Mercury above)


220 = 4x (55=1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10)
117 = 88 + 29 = 127 + (Sun=1) - 11


243 = 23 + 220 = 127 + 116
117 = Venus Solar Day = 73 + 33 + 11


243 = Venus Sidereal Day

Sequence of Venus transits occur in a cycle repeating every 243 years.
243 Earth Sidereal Orbits = 395 Venus Sidereal Orbits = 152 Venus Synodic Periods
243 = 127 + 116


395 = 584 -(73 + 116)


152 = 225 - 73
While the number of transits and their timing within this period will vary over time, the 243-cycle remains relatively stable.

I noticed a pretty major typo in the 2nd post of this thread.
I’ve corrected it here and added more lunar (or is that looney?) formulas.

223 synodic months = 239 anomalistic months = 242 draconic months
223 x 29.5319141 = 6585.61684

6585.14 + .19 = 6585.33 = 1 Saros

1 Saros = 6585 1/3 Days
1 Saros = (18 x 11 x 33) + 51 + .33
1 Saros = 33x (127 + 72) + 18 + .33

Triple Saros = Exeligmos: “Turn of the Wheel” ( 360˚ )
3x (18=The Moon + 10 ('Wheel' of Fortune) + 32=Elements) = 19756
99x (Zodiac=127 + 72=Planets) +55 = 19756

19756 / 3 = 6585.33 = 1 Saros

Well, I'm certainly open to discussion.

Thus far, I've operated under the assumption that demonstrating how The Book of Thoth can function as a calendar for tabulating orbital and synodic cycles in our solar system might interest members of The Aleister Crowley Society.

Of course, having seen its share of crypto-maniacal crackpots, I can understand how the 'formulas' posted above could strike any veteran of these forums as just another stripe of crazy... but, if you do the math, there does appear to be something to it.
If not, then by all means, let me know...

As I've seen nothing written on this aspect of Tarot, I am very interested in the thoughts and opinions of individuals who are more likely to be familiar with Thoth's book, particularly Crowley's version of it.

127 = ZODIAC = 73
16: Tower / Mars = 7
10: Fortune / Jupiter = 1


51 = (Planets=72) - (Sun=19)
21: Universe / Saturn = 3


6 = (Elements=5 + (Sun=1)

178:6 = 29.666666 = Saturn Orbit in Years


178 = 51 + 127
(178:6) x 146 = 4331.333 = Jupiter Orbit in Days


146 = 19 + 127

59.333 = 4331.333 : 73


4331.333 x 5 = 21656
59.333 = Saturn Orbit x2


59.333 x 365 = 21656

5:2 = Jupiter:Saturn Orbital Resonance = 21656:21656

378 = Saturn Synodic Period


21 x (18=Planets)
399 = Jupiter Synodic Period


21 x (19=Sun)

399 x 55 = 21945


138 = Saturn Retrograde = 11 + 127
378 x 56 = 21168


121 = Jupiter Retrograde = 11 x 11


> 55 + 56 = 111


> 777 = 21945 - 21168

The Great Chronocrators
Apparently, one of the larger cycles of time tracked in the ancient world were the ‘Great Chronocrators’ - the synodic cycles when Jupiter’s Orbit would overtake Saturn’s, marking their conjunction with the Sun. While the calculation of these cycles are consistent with the numerical values derived from The Book of Thoth’s organization of Major Arcana into elements, planets & zodiac, what I’ve found particularly meaningful about the greater of these - the Chronocrator climacteria (maxima) - is that conjunctions occur 10x in each of the 4 elements; very much like the 10 sephira in the four worlds of azilut, beriah, yezirah & asiyyah.

19.85887 years (7253.45 days) = Jupiter-Saturn Mean Synodic Period
1 Metonic Cycle = 5 x 73 = 365


(x19 = +5)


(x3 x73 = +1)
19 x 21 x 18 = 399 x 18 = 7182 = 19 x 378 = 18 x 21 x 19
7254 = 7182 + (72=Planets) = Chronocrater-specialis Cycle

20x 365.25 = 7305 = (Zodiac=73) x100 + (Elements=5) = 20 Earth Years
7253.45227 = Chronocrater-specialis Cycle


7254 = 7305 - (51=Planets)

198 x 365.25 + 265 = 72584.5 = 10 Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions (10x 1 element)
72584.5 = Chronocrator trigonalis Cycle


72584 = 11x 111x 59.333 + (127+11)
72584 = 73050 - 466


200 x 365.25 = 73050


466 = (6x 73) + 28

794.3723 years = 40 Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions (10x 4 elements) = 290144.48 days
800 = (Elements=32) x (Planets=25) = 292,200 = 800x 365.25
2055 = (73 x 28) + 11


28 = METATRON Key: Jupiter
290,145 = 292,200 - 2055


290,145 = Chronocrator climateria Cycle

Yygdrasilian - there are two conceptions of time relative to Greek thought. Where does Kairos fit in your philosophy? Also - can you provide associations relative to the colour scale of thermodynamics - i.e. Whereby in cooling the white light becomes blue dependant upon the present elements?

Lastly - can you present your abstract understanding as a cyclic whole, and if possible relative to an application of any intelligence of Malkuth? Specifically - energy relating to an open system cross integrated in Malkuth, if you don't mind...

Many thanks,

Alrah.

I’m not sure you could call what I’ve been posting in this thread ‘my philosophy’ as the formulas given above are, more likely, organizing principles behind the ‘structure’ of Tarot - my laying claim to them would be akin to saying I invented Tarot, Kabbalah & Astrology.

1 think 1 ‘get’ your meaning though...

Kronos and Keiros complement one another: Kronos being the measurable periodic cycles of time that ‘wait for no one’, and Keiros the fortune of the opportune, or one’s sense of timing. Presumably, Kronos exists with or without an individual to subjectively experience it, whereas Keiros is the aesthetic sense of timing that requires a consciousness to perceive and act in accord with ‘fortune’ (or, if you prefer, ‘circumstance’). In other words, Kronos (objective time) is like a wave, and Keiros (subjective time) its’ surfer.

The relation of Light to the Elements, or of Colour to Temperature, is perhaps analogous to the relationship of Sound to Light - different octaves of a wider spectrum. The analogy may be extended to the orbital-synodic cycles of our solar system in so far as resonance and harmony are concerned. And this may have something to do with Pythagoras’ emphasis on proficiency in music-astronomy-arithMETic/geoMETry.

However, if the ‘white light’ becoming blue you speak of is in reference to the “Deep blue light...unmistakable and unique” Crowley mentions in Equinox of the Gods, I suspect that could be due to a Doppler effect - if, that is, we attribute ontological validity to such ‘phenomena.’ The various means of inducing trance states of consciousness may alter something like 'electron-spin resonance' of affected areas in the brain, allowing One to perceive what has been referred to as ’praeter-natural intelligences.’ Whether they are to be taken as figments of One’s imagination or higher dimensional beings is a matter of personal preference.

Of course, it matters very little whether or not I choose to believe in the Pookah; the real question is whether the Pookah believes in me.

‘Energy relating to an open system cross integrated in Malkuth’ may be similar to an octave or range of octaves in relation to the wider spectrum - Malkuth being delineated by the brackets our ‘state’ of awareness allows us to set around a section of ‘bandwidth.’ Conception of a system being either open or closed could really just be a matter of perspective - a world-view defined by where the borders of awareness are set. The whole is a dynamic system of which the ‘Kingdom’ is but a part; incomprehensible in its totality till One rises to height of their ‘Crown’, so-to-speak. In this sense The Book of Thoth, organized into Constellations ( see: http://www.lashtal.com/nuke/PNphpBB2-viewtopic-t-3269.phtml ), is a presentation of this ‘abstract understanding’ as a ‘cyclic whole’ which describes One’s journey through the Tree of Life.

Thank you Yygdrasilian:-)

It appears we have similar ways of thinking when it comes to the tarot. It's been about 13 years since I looked into this, and I did not have the resources to look more deeply into the ancient astrological time cycles.

I also came to the conclusion that the origins of the tarot were an ancient esoteric calculator - probably first used in runic form, - little more than hebrew fire letters upon stones or coines at first, but used with purpose and according to a system related to the observable pattern of the heavens 'as above, so below'.

Let us look and play (as you say) with symbol & number as a child would... or attempt to think as an ancient would. Let us imagine an ancient hebrew hermit, dwelling in a small cave not far off from the local village - a holy man undistracted by village life who has given himself over to contemplation. Occaisionally he is visited by the people of the small village - given food and consulted on the matters that most concern them - for this man has been taught an ancient system and knows the secret of letters, writing, the turn of the seasons and of the stars.

So a villager goes up to the holy man, gives him all the local news, some eggs etc. and asks him for a 'reading' - asks what do the stars say about this villagers proposed marriage? This villagers doesn't know the exact date of his birth but this is unimportant to the holy man. He leads the villager into the cave and lights a torch, pours some wine into a cup, sets some herbs alight and takes up his stones marked with the fire letters.

In the flickering light, he lines all the stones up in their proper shapes and orders and takes one stone that represents the villagers Fire, one for his Water, one for his Air and one for his earth, according to the balance of them he accords to the villager in respect of the question he's being consulted about. (in other words one from each 'suit' of the minor arcana. Then he adds them up like a child would. 9+9+9+2=29=11. He then takes the 11th stone of the major arcana (counting aleph as 1), and that is the key stone that answers the villagers question (fortune). Perhaps he lays some other stones out arround the central stone according to some pattern he's been taught? 🙂

Ah - but how can we tell if this is merely a fanciful tale of yesteryear or something with some beef to it? I use the rota and I say it works - up to a point and that point is the same for Kabbalah. You may have something to prove the validity of the rota system with your time cycles, but as interesting as it is, it goes over my head at the present time.

What is this 'Chronocrator climacteria (maxima)' in which conjunctions occur 10x in each of the 4 elements)? Would these relate to the minor arcana (removing the court cards)? Could you try and tell me the theory without all the lists please, in plain and simple language - perhaps from the viewpoint of an ancient man oberving the sky and playing with his letters? 🙂

93,

All I can manage to discern is pseudo-insane delusional ramblings & calculations. Maybe Im reading it wrong...?

The Chronocrater cycles are a measure of Jupiter’s 11.86 year orbit ‘overtaking’ Saturn’s 29.33 year orbit - a phenomenon occurring about every 20 years (specialis). From cycle to cycle their position relative to the zodiacal ecliptic ‘advances’ 243˚ - going from, Sagittarius to Leo to Aries to Sagittarius, and so on - remaining in the same element for 10 cycles (trigonalis) before moving onto the next. The Chronocrater climacteria is the full 40 cycles that occur before returning to the element that initiated the series.

I’m not exactly sure, as yet, how this might fit with the system of 36 decans used to explain the astrological correspondences of the minor arcana ( 2’s - 10’s ), if at all; but I can appreciate how it appears to resonate with the structure of both the Tarot deck and the Qabala Tree. Another curious feature about this cycle is that 243 x 40 = 9720, which, divided by 360 = 27 = 3x3x3. A way of squaring the circle, perhaps? - though I suppose it would more on the order of a Cube.

Overall, this function of The Book of Thoth in calculating planetary motions and alignments would appear to lend some credence to its eponymous title. As the odds against this system being the product of mere coincidence are ‘astronomical’, I suspect there may be some validity to the claim that Tarot is derived from a much older source. These cycles are precisely the sort of information that ancient astronomers using the megalithic observatories would’ve have considered significant; and are likely embedded in many of the oldest myths.

I expect there are many clues to be found in a careful study of the Greek Hellenistic period...

And I look forward to reading more of your work and progress in this specialist yet fruitful area of study. 🙂

The key that includes 6 is the 11th fruit of the spirit - forgiveness. Once 666 is forgiven they are included and become 777, feminine...then they can access the Heavenly Father/Divine Mind - Chokhmah after passing through the Holy Spirit/Mother - Binah

Neophyte is perhaps a more pleasant & refined way of saying 'Dumb-ass', but when I look back at these early distillations of my research I cannot hep but think: dumb-ass - no matter how much neophyte might ease the cognitive dissonance. I suppose that’s why I misspelled Yygdrasilian when crafting that particular avatar for my online forays into the harmonic structure of Thoth’s aenigmatic Book: for nothing is ever perfect & even the Tree has its’ share of ‘flaws’ [y=g].

These posts are a testament to an early stage of my nebulous recognition of patterns within the inter-marriage of Tarot & Qabalah - a blurry view of that grander design which comes into focus only after the process of rectification. In the contemplative sense this may be akin to identifying awareness with divine perfection through the Tantric use of icons, as if beholding ‘perfected being’ were obscured by clouds of corporeal delusion until evaporated by the epiphanies of One's meditations.

In the more empirical sense, I was onto something inasmuch as the Book of Thoth does contain a wealth of information concerning the periodic cycles of alignments between Sun, Earth & other planets referred to by the Romans as the annus magnus (great year) & by the Greeks as an exeligmos (turn of the wheel). This thread began as a rather crude attempt at articulating the ‘music’ made with the ratios created in these interplanetary conjunctions - a pattern which was then only vaguely discernible in my study of Crowley’s Tarot. In retrospect, these numerical combinatricks evidence an extremely 2-d comprehension of the architectural framework responsible for these patterns in lower dimensional manifolds.

On a practical level, this activity can be of benefit in facilitating the rational construction of what is referred to as a ‘method of loci’ mnemonic TooL - the art of memory formed, in this case, around a recursive pattern in nature broadly applicable to a wide variety of subjects by virtue of its’ ubiquity. Through repeated distillations it begins to take shape, coming into clearer focus as One gains greater familiarity with the Knowledge it maps and the Understanding that contains.

Of course, this sort of activity: sifting through numbers, looking for a ghost in the machine, can also lead to the compulsive obsessions of the mathematically deranged; which has perhaps necessitated the existence of formal structures for initiation and ‘advancement’ through grade-work. A kind of check against dumb-asses going off the deep end.

In any case, Saturn does return... doesn’t it?

Congrats. You have finally written something wonderful and insightful ,re:the last paragraph.
If the internet had been fully realized when I first started my foray in the Qabalah no doubt my early ramblings and epiphanies would have also seen the light of day rather than (thankfully) being confined to private notebooks.
