ded to the place of the Sun at noon, make the true place of the Sun at time of erection of the Figure, 26 deg. 44 min. and 4 sec. of Capricorn; there is 20 min. of one hour more; but because they produce nothing of consequence, I omit further herein. The place of the Moon the same day at noon is 20 54; if you adde her motion in two hours, you shall see it will be twice 30 min.. viz, one whole degr. and then her true place will be 21 54 Capricorn.
We that say many Figures, never care for this exactnesse, but use this generall rule; In the motion
of the Sun, Venus and Mercury, if the figure be for six or seven hours after noon, we adde about
15 min. to their places at noon, and so allowing for every six hours 15 min. motion. Because the Moon goeth 12,13 or 14 degr. in an day, we constantly adde to her place at noon 3 degr. for every six hours, and some mm. over; doe so with the other Planets according to their diurne motion. He that would doe them more exact, may work them by multiplication and division, or procure some old Ephemeris, wherein there is usually large proportionall Tables concerning this business.
Now as I have acquainted you, that in motion of the Planets you must in a Nativity or Question, if you please, allow the Planets so much to be added unto their place at noon as can be got in 50 min. of an hour, so you must observe the contrary in the Aspects. As for example: The sixt of January you find Moon Square Saturn 14 P.M. viz, the Moon comes to the square aspect of Saturn at 14 hours after the noon of the sixth day of January, or at two of the clock the next morning on the seventh day: now you must subduct 50 min. of an hour from 14 hours, and then the true time of the Moon her perfect square to Saturn with us at London, is at 13 hours and 10 min. after noon: doe so in all the aspects &c.
