The Earth at the Sight of the Solar Zodiac
Prof. Sergey Smelyakov

Ed. N.: "The Earth at the Sight of the Solar Zodiac" is the second part of "THE PREDICTED UNKNOWN - A DECADE OF VOLTE-FACE". Only the chapter 1.1 is published here in HTML format. The complete text is available in DOC format (see below).


The existence of several factors of influence has been revealed that may change the course of events in Nature and this civilization within a decade of Volte-Face presenting a threshold of a New Age.

Though the "physical" origin of these factors is not always known, a person possessing an unbiased mind may easily see that they arise from a system of quite reliable and amazing correlations, the mathematical presentation of which provides us with an instrument for finding the terms of the bifurcation points.

As far as the sources of these factors are relatively independent and stretch from geophysics and Solar-planetary synchronism to astrology and Mayan Calendar, the obtained results are given the form of a series of articles, each one being devoted to a definite subject, which, nevertheless, lead to the same conclusion.


Part 2: The Earth at the Sight of the Solar Zodiac

Identifying the Zodiacal Age by employing a two-millennium trend in Cosmogeneous influence is a problem that attracts much attention these days. The dominant opinion states that the Earth is coming into the Age of Aquarius, since the TVP (Tropical 0° point) approaches Aquarius in the Sidereal Zodiac. However, due to the absence of a unified definition of this Zodiac, the "birth times" for the coming Age stretch over 1000 years - from 1762 to 3000 [2]. While not calling to reject the concept of the Sidereal Zodiac, which is effectively used now in Vedic astrology (though with various origins) and, thus, reflects some actual Space influence, the author proposes to clarify the situation with the "New Ages" and factors of Space influence on the grounds of facts and recent discoveries in the space science and astrological concepts. On this basis, the concept of the Solar System Zodiac (SSZ) is developed as a natural affiliate to the Tropical Zodiac (TZ). By comparing these Zodiacs we see that namely these days the TVP comes to the sign of Capricorn in the SSZ, and vice versa. The obtained conclusion - that we are coming to the Age of Capricorn - is supported by of archeological evidences and worldwide trends in Nature and society.

Part 1. The Tropical vs. Sidereal Zodiac

On unusual conditions of the Future it would
be impossible to pass by the old ways [1]

1.1. The Concept of the Tropical Zodiac

The sphere of influence of the Tropical Zodiac (TZ) is initially limited to the Earth: it is associated with the aura envelope of the Earth, through which, as via an inhomogeneous filter, different space objects exert their influence to its internal elements - from separate human beings to social structures and natural processes. The accuracy of parameters defining the mathematical model of the TZ is very high and bounded just by the exactness of astronomical measurements that specify the Earthís orientation and orbit by the Equator and Ecliptic planes, respectively. Use of these two planes supplies both astronomy and astrology with a mathematically correct conjugate Ecliptical/Equatorial coordinate systems which uniquely define the Earthís orientation in Space (within the unelectable error, as all stars move with a more or less velocity) for any moment of time and, thus, provides these branches of knowledge with the grounds for stating reproducibility and verifiability pertaining to the basic scientific requirements (See the first issue of this series - World Trends and astrology in the Light of Heterogeneous Resonance).

Remember the definitions of this concept: the Ecliptic is the circle on the Celestial sphere along which the Sun appears to travel in its journey around the Earth, taking one year to do so (here, the Sun presents the direct Hierarch for the Earth). The Equator lies in the plane which is perpendicular to the Earth's own axis of rotation. North (South) Pole is the point where the Earth's axis intersects the Celestial sphere in the Northern (Southern) hemisphere. Then, the structure of the Tropical Zodiac is determined by the plane of ecliptic ET and the plane of Earth's equator QT, whose intersection with the celestial sphere gives two opposite points - the Vernal and Autumn Equinoxes. The former one, the Tropical 0° point (TVP, or the First Point of Aries^T), is where the Sun's path along the Ecliptic crosses the Equator from South to North.

One can only surmise why preference was given to the North Pole; but this is how matters stand. Maybe these Northern hemisphere stars and constellations (Ursa Major, Pleiades, Sirius, etc.) present particular importance for the Earth; or perhaps it is due to the Secret Doctrine concept [3] which asserts: "the magnetism which reaches the Earth from the Sun - physical magnetism, and astral, and mental likewise - enters the Earth through the North Pole".

In its absolute form, the Zodiac is the unity that determines the universal cycle of transformation of energy (along the Ecliptic). This is present in two forms: (1) in static form, when considering separate zones, and (2) in dynamic form, when the origin and the end merge together, thus generating the fulcrum called the First Point of Aries. But the Entity being contained in it could be divided with the use of different numerological keys - 2,3,4,5,12, and even 360. Each key defines the concept of dividing the entire cycle into phases and their esoteric meanings. These concepts (D. Rudhyar, A. Leo, et. al.) allow us to suggest that the Zodiac comprising 12 signs most properly reflects the evolution stages of the Earth, as shown in the production of trinity and quaternary (viz. spiritual and material, etc.). It is also natural to suggest that the key 7 is the most extant to the Solar System with respect to 7 rays, 7 basic planes (H.P. Blavatsky), etc.
