Concerning the Earth Moon relationship – and the centre of gravity of their interaction: Larousse encyclopedia of astrology entry for the Moon “Technically, the Moon does not revolve around the Earth; both Moon and Earth revolve around a common centre of gravity 1000 miles beneath the Earth’s surface and 3000 miles from its centre.” Similarly, from a booklet I have by the late astrologer Charles A Jayne: “The moon does NOT revolve around the earth! Staying always exactly opposite to each other, they revolve around their common centre of mass or barycentre in 27.32 days, .”
Regarding Centre of Mass of Solar System in a free newsletter I received (link below-The article provides a link to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Center_of_mass#Barycenter) the author, a financial astrologer, states:
“Commonly it’s assumed that the planets are revolving around the sun but this is not 100% correct: actually the sun is dancing around the CM, too. Because of the huge mass of the sun the barycenter is always close to the surface of the sun and often within the sun, that depends on the position of the heavy planets, primarily Jupiter and secondarily Saturn. The CM exactly on the surface often leads to heavy turbulences in the solar system (and on our planet, of course).
I suspect the center of mass plays a key role in transforming the energy from the Galactic Center, that’s why it acts as the ‘navel’ of the solar system. The center of mass (or gravitation) in the human body is presumably centered approximately in the navel, and the navel is on average situated at 0.618 (= phi, Golden section) of the height of a person.”
I find these interesting concepts/contemplations for gravity practice in Kan/Li and Star Alchemy.

I think the Center of Mass concept is very significant in understanding that the solar system body is a dynamic, changing entity, much like a human being moves its center of gravity about as it goes through life. Physical gravity is ultimately a mirror of spiritual center of gravity, which in my opinion is the key to immortality.

Have you been thinking about this. It’s 6 hours betwean flood and low tide. The reason is a litle bit subtle.
Lets speak only on the moon excluding the sun for simplicity.
There is one flood on the side closest to the moon.
There is another flood on the other side of earth cased by the earths acceleration around the moon earth systems center of mass.
Put it anouther way.
Think about three tings the moons gravity is acting on.
The water on the half of the earth that is closest to the moon. (Strongest acceleraion to the moon)
The earth as body (Next strongest acceleration to the moon)
The water on the back side of the earth looking from the moon. (Least acceleration to the moon)
Soo the closest water moves the longest way towards the moon
Then the earth is moving nearly as much
But the water on the back side of the earth didn’t move so much so it will also be a flood there.
So it will be 12 hours betwean the floods beacase of there are two floods on the earth. One at the moonside and the other at the back side.
Don’t know if this has anything to do with practise. Was just cutious myself why there was 6 hours betwean flood and low flods, but the explanations I’ve then got just of the one of the floods, should have ment 12 hours.

I think the gravitational pull of the sun is involved in tidal forces. maybe it amplifies the third distant flood you listed.

Yes it works exactly the same way with the sun. You have both of the tides. But the sun and the moon amplifies eachother when they are in line with eachother. But I don’t know which one makes the biggest effects on the tides of the two. Or if there is a difference betwean how big the second tide, on the back side of the earth, relative the sun and the moon.
