For (mostly) esthetic reasons I have moved the animations to their respective pages and deleted the page they were on. I have also renamed the Encoding page so that all of the folio pages are together.
Update 14 Jan: almost all of the folio pages have gotten an update.
The Cipher page now includes my ‘workaround method’ set up so anyone else can try it.
The page for f67r2 above has been updated. New versions of the Interpretation file and the Conjunctions file have been posted.
This folio takes the waxing gibbous phase of the moon when concurrent with the Aries/Taurus part of the sky and makes it circular. It is a recurring event.
This is also the connection between the event in the sky at 07Tau on 7 December 1486 and the earth: the star labels are the “realm of the stars”, the moons the “realm of the planets”, and inside the circle is “the circles of the world”.
The twelve words just below the moons were decoded as places in Europe, and a map showing them has been added at the bottom. Lines drawn between them form a hexagon whose center point is Vienna, Austria.
The meaning of the words below them has not been determined.
Note: I have updated and added files to some of the older pages above.
I have finally reached a point in my research where most of the Astro section diagrams have been found to concern a specific time and place: 07 December 1486, near the center of Aries (astrologically 07Taurus). The diagram of f68r3 is the centerpiece.
I have added a new page above with a flowchart showing my interpretaions and how they are related, then a sky map with the collected diagrams.
I do not know, yet, what is so significant about this spot, and research is continuing.
I have added as a separate page above the encoding/decoding method of the VMs.
A number of people expressed difficulty understanding it, so I have laid it out in as simple and direct a fashion as I can.
Noting continued difficulty, I have modified both pages to add information that will hopefully be useful in understanding.
I realized I used an older version of the method, so updated the page and added a file showing the encoding and decoding of the word THE in the text of f68r1.
Comments and questions welcome.
I wrote this using my “workaround” method, which lays out the text and lets the researcher change letter values at will to look for sensible text. It does not require the usage of the encoding/decoding method.
The letter values are “Set 4”, used in the paragraph text. Sets 1 – 3 are used in the labels.
Here is the text in the workaround format:
I would be very interested in hearing what others think. Thank you.
As I’ve shown in the past, f68r1 depicts the Great Comet of 1533 as it was seen on 18 July 1533.
Recently I questioned why it is there? What connection does it have with the central event of f68r3? Now I know. On f68r3 the moon is shown in an astrological position of 07Taurus, and in conjunction with Almach, also at 07Taurus.
f67v1 is Tycho’s supernova of 1572, and f68v2 shows the framing stars. SN1572 was also at an astrological postion of 07Taurus.
Advancing the comet’s movements revealed it passed within 2° of the supernova’s position on 25 July 1533, and pointed at where it would appear. The accompanying picture from Starry Night shows the movement.
This was not a prediction, but evidence the Voynich was created at a later date.
Some new information about the meaning of the folio has come up, so the page for it (link above) has been updated.
This may be another aspect of the event shown on f68r3; the moon at an astrological position of 07Tau on 7 Dec 1486 and in conjunction with both Almach and the future postion of Tycho’s supernova (f67v1 and f68v2).
