ese and many other divisions of the Signs, I thought good to be plain in setting down the Antiscions of the Planets.

But that you may more fully and perfectly know where your Antiscion fals in degrees and minutes, behold this following Table.
A generall Table of Antiscions in Signs.
Any Planet in Gemini sends his Antiscion into Cancer, or being in Leo into Taurus.
If you would know the exact degrees and minutes, you must work as followeth. Let us suppose Saturn in twenty degrees and thirty five minutes of Leo, I would know in what part of the Zodiack he hath his Antiscion.
Over against Leo I find Taurus, so then I conclude his Antiscion is in Taurus. To know the
degree and minutes the Planet is in, subtract that from 30 degrees, and the remainder tels you

As Saturn being in 20 degrees and 35 minutes of Leo, I subtracted
