Solar Cycles

And Nine Star Ki 81 Year Cycles

Sunspot activity rises and falls on 11 year cycles. I used to wonder how the sunspot cycle fits in with the 9 year cycle of Nine Star Ki. Looking back, I had a pretty narrow-minded, geocentric point of view. I hadn't thought about it for years, until I read an article in the October '99 issue of Sky and Telescope Magazine®.

Sunspot data: Sky & Telescope®, October, 1999

The dates on the image are the first years of the five previous 81 year cycles (including our present cycle):

1631- 4 Tree 81 year cycle
1712- 3 Tree 81 year cycle
1793- 2 Soil 81 year cycle
1874- 1 Water 81 year cycle
1955- 9 Fire 81 year cycle

There are several interesting correlations between the graph and Nine Star Ki, 9 year & 81 year cycles. This webpage will point out the most obvious one. Look at the 81 year cycle, beginning in the year 1631. We know that this was a 4 Tree cycle. What position does Nine Fire occupy, in a 4 Tree cycle? The 1 Water position (darkness, winter, midnight), of course.

The magazine article also noted that the latter half of the 1600's was marked with "... unusually harsh winters and a noticeable year-round global cooling".

Note: The information, above, was gleaned from the October '99 issue of Sky and Telescope Magazine®. A subsequent issue ( Sky and Telescope Magazine®, February 2000) challenges this data. Apparently, an extraordinary amount of sunspot activity, at the time in question (the 17th century), was observed and recorded in the orient.

The official Chinese records are a common source for modern astronomers. While the official records either indicated little sunspot activity, or were missing, many local records from China, Korea and Japan cite numerous observations. This suggests that the sunspot data may not be in keeping with the 9 Ki interpretation, above.

However, the correlation between the unusually harsh winters and 9 Fire in 1 Water still applies and remains significant, in any case.
