According to the Zurvanit's texts, Arta (the Light Moon) is the point
of the Eternity or the Undivided Time named Zurvan Akarana, which unites
three finite times of Zurvan Karana (Past, Present and Future) in one point.
Three finite times are the Lunar Nodes and the Dark Moon. The Past Time
is the Descending Node of the Moon, the Present Time is the Dark Moon (the
lunar orbit's apogee) and the Future Time is the Ascending Node of the
Moon. Such a property as symmetry or reflection, as we know, marks
a state of Eternity. The aspect of opposition expresses this mirror resemblance
in the circle of the Zodiac. Obviously, a symmetrical picture can't be
composed with three points. But it is important that the Lunar Nodes are
the crossings of the lunar orbit and the ecliptic, i.e. solar orbit around
the Earth, if we take the Earth as the fixed center. So we have to look
for a missing link at the solar orbit. Let's examine now the solar orbit
relatively to the lunar orbit. In this case the Ascending Solar Node will
coincide with the Descending Lunar Node and the Descending Solar Node with
the Ascending Node of the Moon. Thus the Past and the Future change over
for the Lunar and Solar orbits, i.e. they are symmetrical as a mirror
image. Therefore the symmetry of the lunar and solar orbits' moments
of the Present in necessary and sufficient for reaching the condition of
Eternity or Akarana. By analogy with the lunar orbit the point of the Present
for the Sun is the solar orbit's apogee which can be marked as .
As we know, the Earth is maximally far from the Sun when the Sun is at
13 degree of Cancer (in fact, this point fluently moves approximately for
2 degrees per hundred years, basically because of precession). This is
the mean point of the Present for the solar orbit. But the true solar apogee
nutates relatively to this point with the amplitude about 2.5 degrees.
So when the Dark Moon enters an opposition to the solar apogee, the Gates
of Eternity are opening and the way to Akarana is getting possible.

Now we should clear up how are these gates opening and what are these
gates themselves.

One among the symbols of the Eternity is a cross, the main attribute
of the Christianity. Zoroastrians used a cross for the omage of Vara (a
protective system, in which the Time was eternal). Therefore a cross (or
the configuration of the Big Cross) is is a model of Vara, which had four
enters at corners. Thus it must be four Gates of the Eternity in
the shape of cross.

Who can open these Gates? These gates, we know, open just for a man
with righteous past. I.e. either the Descending Lunar Node or the Descending
Solar Node (which is Ascending Lunar one) can open the Gates of Eternity
only. I.e., every time, when the Dark Moon is in opposition to the solar
apogee (diag. 1), one of the Points of the Eternity must coincide with
one of the Nodes.

Diag. 1

That means, if the Light Moon really exists, we have got a right to
declare that the point named the Light Moon above in fact is just one
out of four points of the cross, making its complete revolutions clockwise
for the peroid of time about 7 years.

the Lunar Nodes pass the half of the circle during one revolution of
the Dark Moon , i.e.
the Modes come almost back but change over their positions. According to
the canons of the Avesta, the Light Moon has the cycle of 7 years. But,
in accordance with the same canons, the cycle of the Dark Moon is 9 years,
although its real cycle is 8.85 years. Now if we take the Light Moon as
one of Vara's points making 7/4 its revolution relatively to the Nodes
for the period of one revolution of the Dark Moon relatively to the solar
apogee, that the cycle of the Light Moon constitutes 6 years 11 months
10 days or 6.95 years. In mathematical for it will be:

Let's attract our attention to that this formula gives the Light Moon's positions
with accuracy till 90 degrees, because the number 4 is in the denominator,
and 360/4 = 90. I.e. the positions of the Light Moon calculated with this
formula have their uncertainty till the quater of the circle. Form this
we drew our conclusion that the Light Moon in reality is not one point
but four equal points of a cross.

Now we can divert from the Light Moon and the Cross Situation (Big Cross
configuration) for a while. It's time to consider a few very interesting
minor planets, because one of the evidences of correctness for all our
argumentation set forth above is the scientific fact of the existence of
these three asteroids:

279

Thule

the cycle 8.85 years

522

Helga

the cycle 6 years 11 months 6 days
or 6.92 years

2311

El Leoncito

the cycle 6 years 11 months 6 days
or 6.92 years

And last two asteroids move practically in opposition to each
other!

It's very interesting to compare some empirical ephemerides of "Selena
6.11.5" (one of early versions of empirical Light Moon with its cycle
of 6 years 11 months and 5 days, which was spreading for the time being
in xerox copies and later was published) with the ephemerides of the 2311
El Leoncito asteroid. The fact is that this "empirical" ephemerides
really is the mean (without loops) ephemerides of this asteroid! Of course,
this is a coincidence. But what a coincidence!

Also, we have no other known asteroids with cycles so close to 9 (8.85)
and 7 (6.95) years but these three asteroids. And what is really amazing,
these asteroids have their angles of declination and eccentricities
close to the same parameters of the lunar orbit! Obviously, these asteroids
play the same role in our solar system as the Dark and Light Moons (the
Gates of Vara) for the Earth. Besides, we can foretell an existence of
two more asteroids with cycles about 6.92 years, which have to lock up
the whole cross situation, if, of course, they were not ruined in one of
cosmic disasters disturbing our solar system from time to time.

Let's come back to the Light Moon now. If the Light Moon makes 7/4 of
a revolution relatively to the Nodes (which make 1/2 of a revolution themselves)
for the period pf one Dark Moon's revolution relatively to the solar apogee,
the Light Moon makes 7/4 - 1/2 = 5/4 of a revolution relatively to 0 Aries.
I.e. every 9 years, when the Dark Moon enters its opposition to the solar
apogee, the Light Moon outruns its own previous position for 90 degrees
approximately. Thereby we can conditionally tell that it moves clockwise
within its microcycle.

Now let's note that the most powerful interaction between the solar
and lunar apogees has to happen in a moment of their complete dimensional
opposition, i.e. when their latitudes are opposite each other as well as
their longitudes. The solar apogee, of course, has zero ecliptic latitude
(placed at the solar orbit). So, such an event is possible when the lunar
apogee has zero latitude too, or when the lunar apogee coincides with one
of the Nodes. Thus the Gates of Eternity are open with their maximum breadth
in a moment of the Dark Moon's conjunction with one of the Nodes in opposition
to the solar apogee. This event, as we can calculate, takes place every
186 years. Last time it happend on August 19, 1991...

Then the Light Moon's macrocycle is 186 or, exactly, 185.87676 years.
And the Light Moon lags from its previous position for 90 degrees approximately
each 186 years. Thus we can conditionally tell that it moves counter-clockwise
within its macrocycle.

There is a little discrepancy in the cylces, thus some fault takes place
in these recurrences ones 910 years in average, and the moment of maximum
resonance comes one cycle of Dark Moon earlier, i.e. not in 186 years after
previous one, but in 177 years, in 177.0255 to be precise. The reason of
this fault is some outrunning of the Moon's Nodes. The Nodes outrun their
previous position each 186 years for 1 degree 46 minutes relatively to
the line "lunar apogee - solar apogee". And if we calculate the
cycle of the Nodes' "movement" in this macrocycle, it will be
185.87676360/1°46' = 37848.623 years, what precisely is one and
a half a cycle of precession. Thereby we see that the Light
Moon's cycle is associated indeed with the cycle of the earth's axis's
movement, as it was declared repeatedly by Pavel Globa, the astrologer
who is well-known in Russia as the head of the Avestan
School of Astrology (AShA).

Obviously, the Light Moon is a corrector of the system "Sun - Earth - Moon",
and it let a process of developing release our system and open the Way
to Eternity.

A physical meaning of the Gates of Eternity should be consisted in a
mutual resonance of the lunar and solar orbits through the time, and it
can be substantiated just by means of development of the Time Theory established
by the great Russian scientist Professor N.A.Kozyrev, a researcher of the
Pulkov Observatory.

An Astrological Interpretation and Meanings of the Light Moon

Let's take a look now an astrological interpretation and meanings of
the Light Moon. According to the orthodox attitude, as it was told above,
the Light Moon is an index of our positive karma, a point of Truth, Good
and Light, a point of manifestation of our Guardian Angel. Is it so correct?
