And first we shall dal withthe Teltion ofthe signs to the characterises ofthe four cements. sepa ‘ately and in combination. sto the nature and temperament ofthe signs if they are witten down in two rows, upper and lower. the st sign above and {he second below it and soon tothe last, all those of the upper row fare hot and those ofthe lower cold, while the pals so arranged are alternately dry and moist. Dares] Barat at [ior [aves | Gemant—| veo —[ bra —| Sgiarios — [Aquarion Tauro {Cancer| Ving Scarpa [capreoenas | sos ‘When therefore you know the active virtues ofa sign whether heat or co, and the passive virtues, whether dryness or molsture t ‘wil not be concealed from you what particular element ofthe world ‘and'what particular humour ofthe body each sign resembles. Each ‘Sin that is hot and dry te related fo ire snd Yellow bie, each that is ‘old and dry. to earth and Black bile cach that is hot and moist ait ‘and blood and each that scold and molt to water and phen. ‘The Hindus regard as moist signs Pisces, the hinder hal of Capricorn and the antertor hal of Aquarius for reasons given above Inspeaking of their representations, vz. that the hinder end of Cap ‘om fs flake, and that of Aquarius water. They do not however ‘eckon Scorpius as belonging to the moist signs, but count with the aerial ones, while Cancer holds an intermediate position, some- limes being regarded as watery, sometimes as aerial according to ‘droumetances: ‘348. MALE AND FEMALE, All the hot signs are male and the cold female. ‘The planets are powerful In those signs which resemble 7 ‘hem in nature and ex, but they partake ofthe nature ofthe signs in ‘which they are situated 90 that a planet obviously male shows ten ‘dency to femaleness by elng n'a female sign. The Hinds say that all the odd. Le. male signs are uniuelgy and the female sign hichy. ‘949, DIURNAL AND NOCTURNAL, ‘There Is general agreement that all the male sign are diurnal and the female nocturnal. The ‘urnal planets are powerful in the day slg and the nocturnal i the alight ones. Inthe Greek bicidha} itis stated that according to some Ares, Cancer, Leo and Sagltarus are day signs and their ‘adits Libra, Capricorn, Aquarius ad Gem are night ones, while the remainder partake both of day and night. The Hindus believe that Aries, Taurus, Geminl, Cancer, Sagittarius and Capricorn are Powerful at might, the ste others by day. 350, MAIMED.

With regard to marriage, Aries ‘Taumis, Leo, Capricorn indicate eagerness therefor. fr Libra and ‘Sagittarius much the samecan be said.

Aries denotes the mile fof the East, Leo a point tothe let ofthat towards the North, and ‘Sagitarus one tothe right towards the South: similarly with each ‘of the other triples. Thus Taurus indicates the centre of the South, Virgo a pont to its left wwards the East and Capricorn one {o the right and West. Gemini occupies the centre of the West ‘bra. point tots left and South and Aquarius, one tots ight and North, Cancers nthe centre of the North, Scorpits «point tothe left and West and Pisces tothe right and East.

Simllariy withthe intermediate quar- ters, a S.E, wind i related to Virgo orto Sagittarius according ait 's nearer S.or E 859, RELATION TO PARTS OF BODY, The following are the vari- fous parts of the body which are related to the several signs. The head and face to Ares the neck and winpipe to Taurus, the arms fnd hands to Gemini, the chest, breast, sides, stomach and Kings torcancer, the heart to Lo, the wom wh its contents to Virgo. he Dek and buttocks to Libra, the genital to Scorpius, the thighs to Sagitarins, the knees to Capricorn, the shanks fo Aquarius and the feet and heels to Pisces. In this matter there is much confusion in the books, for according to some, nat only the head and face but also the bowels dare governed by Aries. The analogy inthis case does not seem to be ‘dear. But itis learn the saying ofa Brahman that ifwe imagine the zodiac tobe a man, with Aries the head and the soles ofthe fet ‘irected towards then the allocation ofthe parts ofthe body ae ‘ordling to the Hindus conforms with what we have said above x ept thatthe facets given to Taurus “The signs are also indicative ofthe various diseases of man, otis compleston. figure, face, and the ike. they also govern loeal- tes and countries, and denote various matters regarding animals, fre, water, tc.

The Hindus are partly in agreement and party dlcent from this doetsne. They ar in agreement in regard {othe opposite, quarts and tes, but they say that while a sign looks towards its third, Uhe third does not regard i, and while i ‘doesnot look to fs sith the sixth does regard. They donot apy the term aspect to conjunction, for they say that when one stands tect and Woks ahead, one cain see onesll With regard to the Fela importance ofthe aspects they say that from a sig towards {he tied and tenth signe there a quarter ofan aspect, and tothe fifth and ninth, half an aspect (awards the 8th and 4th three quar tersofan aspect and tothe 70 complete aspect). They describe the Second and fwelth sign as inconjunet to the Rist an I to them, 877, RELATIONS BESIDES ASPECT. TWwo signs equidistant from fan equinoctal point are sald to be equipollent, because the day hhours of each are equal tothe night hours of the other. and thelr Ascensions are equal inall places, sch as Aries and Paces, Taurus land Aquarias, et The corespondence Is by inverse degrees, one being north the other south, the Mist of Aries being equal to the toveniy-ninth of Paces and Uke 10th tothe 20th ‘Two slgns revolving in the same parallel, North or South (equidistant froma solstice are described as corresponding in course (initinere), their day hours are equal as are thee night hours, and thelr ascensions are identical atthe equator. such as Gemini and ‘Cancer, Taurus and Leo, "The correspondence is also by Inverse Segrees, the beginingof Cancer corresponding tothe end of Gemini, {Gnd the tenth of the former to the twentieth of the latter. These two Felations reelve diferent names in the books. and there Is no per- fmanence fn such names, bul that term is best which corresponds to the meaning. [Abu Ma'shar has called the to signs which have the same presiding planet as concordant in tinere. and although this s i FEzent from the two kinds of agreement refered to above, its a Felaton which has to be considered.

In virtue of ts own nature the moon is fortunate, Dut Xs position with regard to the other planets changes quickly owing to the rapidity of ts motion (On the whole the effects of the beneficent planets may be described as virtue, peace, plenty. good disposition, cheerfulness, epose, goodness and learning. ifthese taluences are powerful, {hey are frendly teach other if weak, they lend each other assis tance.
