The gravitational Larmor theorem for artificial satellite motions due to the Thirring-Lense relativistic Effect is formulated. The gravitomagnetic field generates a Lorentz force field which causes the classical Zeeman effect on the orbital motion. Consequently, the frequency of a circular orbital motion on the Earth’sequator plane changes by half of the gravitational Larmor frequency which relates to the magnitude of gravitomagnetic field.
