A tool for exploring the correlation of the Jubilee cycle with the conjunctions of Saturn and Venus with Regulus
- S/R is a conjunction between Saturn and Regulus.
- V/R is a conjunction between Venus and Regulus
Meanings of the colored highlighting in the “Year of S/R conjunction” column:
- Blue = V/R conjunction in the same year as the S/R conjunction
- Yellow = V/R conjunction in the year before the S/R conjunction
- Green = V/R conjunction in the year after the S/R conjunction
- Darker shade indicates the S/R conjunction is a triple
- Lighter shade indicates the S/R conjunction is just a single or double
Four parameters in this table are available for adjustment. These are the four cells marked by a black outline border:
- Initial Jubilee alignment (0-49, default 0) – specifies one of the 49 ways that the Jubilee cycle can be tied to the historical timeline
- Jubilee discontinuity (default 12 or 61) – specifies the length in years of a gap in counting of years for Sabbath and Jubilee purposes, which may have occurred at the time of the Babylonian exile
- Closeness of V/R conjunction (default 0.030). Scroll to the right to see this one, at the top of the last column. This column is set up to highlight in yellow all Venus/Regulus conjunctions closer than the value specified in this cell, to assist in exploring the patterns of these conjunctions. Make the number lower (closer), and fewer will be highlighted, or higher, and more will be highlighted.
- Closeness setpoint for V/R conjunctions. This one, at the top of the “Year of S/R conjunction” column, helps to control the colored highlighting of this column. Like the previous one, it has to do with the closeness of the associated V/R conjunction. If you’d like to ignore datapoints for which the associated V/R conjunction wasn’t very close, just put the setpoint for closeness in this cell. Then only those datapoints with an associated V/R conjunction closer than this setpoint will get the colored highlighting. The default of 1.2 allows the colored highlighting to be included for all datapoints.
The other numbers in the table are also editable, but should be left as they are. They reflect the data computed by Solex for the actual positions and timing of these conjunctions.
