Taoist Nine Star Astrology

Taoist Nine Star Astrology is the essence of the all the Taoist practices and is based on the Pole Star (Yang), the Big Dipper (7 Points), and the Vega Star (Yin). All movement and energy patterns on Earth are based from energy fields of these 9 points. Every 26,000 years completes one cycle of Light (Yang) to Darkness (Yin), and presently shifting the Pole Star (Yang) (Center of Galaxy) to the Vega Star (Yin), which there about 2,000 years after in this cycle before the shift.

(1) Vega (Yin) *         (9) North (Pole) Star *
  *(2)

      *(4)    
        *(5) *(8)
        *(6) *(7)

Although our planet's polar axis is tilted at 23 degrees with the Star Polaris in Ursa Minor above its northern pole, this is not a constant. Modern astronomers know that approximately every 26,000 years the earth flops to a position where the star Vega in the Constellation Lyra becomes the Pole Star. This shift is fairly dramatic, however, there is less dramatic wobbling that our planet makes on its axis, a wobbling that invariably alters the North-South Polarity, as with the body channels, the Positive Governor Channel an Negative Functional Channel, and how this affects the human electromagnetic field. Sages of the past were able to observe nine distinguishable electromagnetic phases in this wobbling. Astrology and astronomy have determined that as there are Nine Stars in the Northern Sky closely centered around the northern end of the earth's polar axis. Polaris, Vega and the Seven Stars that make up Ursa Major, the Big Dipper. They are responsible for the slight electromagnetic shift that occurs. As Nine Star Chi Theory has it, each star is integrally a part of and responsible for each of the distinguishable electromagnetic phases. When our planet is under the influence of one of the particular electromagnetic phases, one of the transformations phases or transformations mentioned earlier becomes accentuated, thus there are five fire years, earth years, water years, wood years and metal years with all elemental transformation phases represented within a nine year cycle and each year is positive or negative (yin or yang). In Nine House Astrology a man or woman is not simply born in a particular house, bur during his or her lifetime migrates through the yearly, monthly, daily and hourly sequences many times.

The belief behind this is that man can and should become perfectly balanced as possible through facing and overcoming all the varied experience presented to him as a result of the influences of the various houses. People follow different patterns because of the influences permanently imprinted upon them at their particular times of birth. The rules that carry them through these cycles remain constant, and it depends upon their state of wisdom as to how well they apply them. The different situations different people face, are determined by their state of evolution at the time they re-enter this world. The strength and intensity of troubles or good fortune depend on the strength and (cosmic) maturity of the individual.

With the Earth there are 10 Branches based on the 5 Elements, which are 5 Positive Elements (Yang Energetic) and 5 Negative Elements (Yin Physical).
(1) Water (Kan-Water) Yang within Yin (+)
(2) Earth (Kun) Yin (-)
(3) Wood (Chen-Thunder) Yang (+)
(4) Wood (Sun-Wind) Yin (-)
(5) Earth (Tai Chi Symbol) Yin & Yang (+ & -)
(6) Metal (Chien-Heaven) Yang (+)
(7) Metal (Tui-Lake) Yin (-)
(8) Earth (Ken-Mountain) Yang (+)
(9) Fire (Li) Yin within Yang (-)


This formation is converted into Sacred Geometry using the Magic Square:

4
9
2
3
5
7
8
1
6

All the numbers add up to 15 in any direction, and 1 + 5 = 6. The movement of the Universe is a spiral moving from 5 to 6 to 7 to 8 to 9 to 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 to5 as it is in the Magic Square. When you use the Pauka with the 9 Directions, you take each number with this spiral progression and they all add up to a single digit number of 3, 6, or 9, which adds up to 18 (in any direction) or 1 + 8 = 9 (9 Star Astrology).

Magic Square is also referred to as Universal Chart. Originally found on Wu of Hsia's tortoise and thus considered a sign from Divine Forces. It represents the qualities, order, and movement of all phenomena as expressed in the law of five transformations. Each of nine blocks in the square or magic pakua is a house, which bears certain qualities. This Square is the cornerstone of Nine Star Astrology as it is used in China, Tibet, and Japan.

The year of your Birth (Essence #) is determined by adding all the numbers up and then subtracting the sum from 11 (9 Stars + Earth (2) or 5 Elements (+ & - =10) = you (1) = 11). There is a 9 Year Cycle of your life based on this progression.

1950: 1 + 9 + 5 + 0 = 15 = 1 + 5 = 6; 11 - 6 = 5: Essence # is 5 (Earth + & -)
(You can delete the #9 from the year, the calculation always comes out the same)
