Outer planets, barycentre and great year
I have a new scientific theory that the long term cycle of the earth is entrained by the alignments of the outer planets. This is pure physics but also has intriguing implications for the scientific basis of astrology. Apologies if this is hard to understand, but happy to discuss and explain.
The solar system barycentre is the centre of mass of the solar system and traces a spirograph ('epitrochoid') path within two solar radii of a central point. It has a regular pattern 178.9 years long resulting from links to the outer planets as follows:
Number of planetary conjunction cycles in each 178.9 year barycentre period
Due to the correlations between these cycles, every 178.9 years Jupiter returns to the same position in relation to Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, and Saturn returns to the same position relative to Neptune, with very small error. Over this period, for every nine Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions, there are close to exactly 13 Jupiter-Uranus, 14 Jupiter-Neptune, 14 Jupiter-Pluto and 5 Saturn-Neptune conjunctions. These planetary alignments cause a rhythmic cycle of the barycentre, as discovered by Sir Isaac Newton just with reference to Jupiter and Saturn. A picture of the last two such cycles is at http://www.bnhclub.org/JimP/jp/comp1.JPG
With a careful look you can easily see the 180 year pattern by comparing the shape at points separated by 180 years.
This is all well known to astronomy. My new point is the observation of a precise harmony between the barycentre cycle and the Great Year of lunisolar precession of the terrestrial equinox - the basis of the so-called Ages of Pisces and Aquarius. This harmonic correlation looks to be a basic rhythm of the solar system whereby Jupiter and the outer planets whip the earth like a gyroscope. The 2147 year period of the Age is a mathematical product of the precession and is in precise harmony with these cycles of the outer planets and the solar system barycentre, being precisely 12 times the barycentre period. The precision of the correlation, although its scientific rationale needs more work, suggests physical causation. For example, if the Saturn-Neptune cycle (exactly 1/5 of the barycentre cycle) is considered a unit, there are precisely 60 units in the 2147 year period of the age, and 720 units in the precessional Great Year period of 25764 years. It therefore appears the age imbeds the barycentric period in terrestrial cycles through systemic entrainment. These links demonstrate the organic unity of the solar system. If this has been observed before then I would welcome any references.
My interpretation of this finding is that the slow wobble of the earth, like a spinning top, is regulated and entrained by interactions between Jupiter and the other outer planets. The planets look to function like a whip to maintain the exact tempo of the earth's wobble in harmony with the barycentric period. This is a testable scientific claim, not a statement of belief. My figures in the above table are slightly imprecise as I could not readily find exact data. I would welcome if astronomers could check them against more precise ephemerides.
