HOW TO CALCULATE THE PLANETS’ POSITIONS 67

find the motion of the Sun on the G. M. T. day as directed by Section Three:

M. T. (Aug. 3,) Leo 10 28 Long. of Sun on noon before G. M. T. (Aug. 2,) Leo 9 31 Sun’s motion on the G. M. T. day 57 Log. of Sun’s motion on G. M. T. day 1.4025 Logarithm of interval .3912 Log. of Sun’s travel during interval 1.7937 Deg. Min. Value of logarithm 1.7937 (increment of correction) 0 degrees, 23 minute. Long. of Sun on noon nearest G. M. T. Leo 10 28 Minus increment of correction. 0 23 Long. of Sun at G. M. T. Leo 10 5

This position may be entered in the horoscope.

In the last horoscope we added the increment of correction to the longitude of each planet because the G. M. T. was after noon. Here the G. M. T. is before noon hence we subtract the increment of correction from the longitude of each planet on the nearest noon to G. M. T. as directed by the rule Section Six (b).
