I Ching and Hexagons on Saturn

I have been sick with the flu since the beginning of the month and have not been able to post until now. I had been working on updating Hexagram Eleven – Peace, but when I began to get well I first checked on my favorite Astrology site, Astrodynamics by Lynn Hayes. She has posted an article and video about some of the findings of the Cassini space mission and the discovery of a gigantic hexagon shape on the north pole of Saturn. From time to time Lynn posts astronomy articles which I find of equal interest. Astrologers were, after all, the original astronomers. You can read Lynn’s full article and see the video she posted about the Cassini discoveries HERE

I am posting a different video, part 1 of the 4 part series by Richard C Hoagland, Hyperdimensional Hexagon in 4 parts. Hoagland is a former space science museum curator; a former NASA consultant, and during the historic Apollo Missions to the Moon, was science advisor to Walter Cronkite and CBS News. If you find this video as interesting as I did, you can click on the other three parts.

I enjoyed this remark by Hoagland about the Hexagon in the video, “The Hexagon is deep, nested like a Chinese puzzle box.” I can’t help but wonder about these hexagon and hexagram shapes and a connection to the I Ching.

I post here part of the article that NASA Cassini wrote about it these discovers with a link to the rest of the article.

“After waiting years for the sun to illuminate Saturn’s north pole again, cameras aboard NASA’s Cassini spacecraft have captured the most detailed images yet of the intriguing hexagon shape crowning the planet.

“The new images of the hexagon, whose shape is the path of a jet stream flowing around the north pole, reveal concentric circles, curlicues, walls and streamers not seen in previous images. Images and the three-frame animation are available at http://www.nasa.gov/cassini , http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov and http://ciclops.org .

“The last visible-light images of the entire hexagon were captured by NASA’s Voyager spacecraft nearly 30 years ago, the last time spring began on Saturn. After the sunlight faded, darkness shrouded the north pole for 15 years. Much to the delight and bafflement of Cassini scientists, the location and shape of the hexagon in the latest images match up with what they saw in the Voyager pictures.

“The longevity of the hexagon makes this something special, given that weather on Earth lasts on the order of weeks,” said Kunio Sayanagi, a Cassini imaging team associate at the California Institute of Technology. “It’s a mystery on par with the strange weather conditions that give rise to the long-lived Great Red Spot of Jupiter.”

Saturn-Hexagon“The hexagon was originally discovered in images taken by the Voyager spacecraft in the early 1980s. It encircles Saturn at about 77 degrees north latitude and has been estimated to have a diameter wider than two Earths. The jet stream is believed to whip along the hexagon at around 100 meters per second (220 miles per hour).

“Early hexagon images from Voyager and ground-based telescopes suffered from poor viewing perspectives. Cassini, which has been orbiting Saturn since 2004, has a better angle for viewing the north pole. But the long darkness of Saturnian winter hid the hexagon from Cassini’s visible-light cameras for years. Infrared instruments, however, were able to obtain images by using heat patterns. Those images showed the hexagon is nearly stationary and extends deep into the atmosphere. They also discovered a hotspot and cyclone in the same region.

I spent a lot of time immersed with all the information I found on this subject. I am an artist, not a scientist so my question to any viewer here, is what do you think about these hexagons on Saturn and apparently also on Jupiter in relation to the I Ching, if anything?  In the realm of synchronicity don’t you find this amazing and relevant. But What?

8 Comments on Cassini Spacecraft Discovered Hexagon Shape on Saturn’s North Pole

    INteresting information here. The bit about it having noticed only thirty years ago is quite ludicrous though. intuition. My interpretation of the events is that there is possibly life being created on saturn. The hexagram is the symbol of life. certain schools throughout history have used it as the star of david. mark of the beast etc… THe number six also.

    Hi Adele, thanks for the link! It would be interesting to find out why the ancient creators of the I Ching chose the hexagram and what the number six meant to them.

    NB small typo

    1. Also ‘everything’ IN THIS UNIVERSE (AS WE PERCEIVE THE UNIVERSE TODAY) is made of the same building blocks, but produces different but similar elements and scale IS irrelevant.

    2. Further, the findings on Mars,….

    Dear Adele and Lynn,

    you are both on the path of awakening to 2012. The hexagon mathematical calculation comes before the Chinese dynasty, it’s part of the Anunnaki who created everything we see around us. The Anunnaki and other AB’s (advanced beings) worked in mathematical formula far beyond our comprehension. [Read about Sumerian Tablets]. Therefore ‘phenomina’ such as the hexagon shape seen on Saturn is an example of this formula and we should not be surprised by this, as we are but an ant in mental capacity, in comparison to what we view. It has been seen before by many pilots over the Bermuda triangle. Also ‘everything’ on this planet is made of the same building blocks, but produces different but similar elements and scale irrelevant.

    Please look at the following link of Terence McKenna, so advanced in his study of I Ching, that it is in fact a mathematical wave form that humans experience as history and time, therefore predictions can be made from it.

    Further the findings on Mars, are in fact well known as to have been the architectural remains, after being inhabited by the Anunnaki for mining gold after earths depletion. Gold is the element of semi-conduction used for AB’s shape changing and atmospheric requirements.

      Hi Poppy,

      Thanks for your comment and interest. I have looked at several of Terence McKenna’s videos and now looked at the one you linked to here. That set me off on another trip of looking. This discussion could go on forever. The opening up of this fascinating subject of just the Hexagon shapes in space, not to mention the subject of time and the I Ching, is keeping me from completing what I set out to do. I’m not complaining, just explaining.

    Hi Lynn,

    Thanks or the comment. Since the I Ching developed over thousands of years in the collective unconscious of those ancient Chinese, I don’t think it was so much a matter of “choosing” but a slow natural development. I can’t get that image of that gigantic hexagon shape on Saturn and thinking about I Ching. I think there must be a connection. But as Carl Jung said, one sleeps better if one doesn’t try to figure out how the I Ching works, which it does. So I guess that hexagon falls into that category for now.
