Looking at the horoscope for 8:15 P. M. we note that Saturn and Mars are in Aries, a Cardinal sign. We therefore place them under Cardinal signs in the index. Cancer, the next Cardinal sign, contains Neptune, and that planet is entered under the Cardinal signs in the index. Libra, the third Cardinal sign, contains no planets. Capricorn is the last of the Cardinal signs; Uranus is there and when we have entered him in the index we have a complete list of the planets which, in this horoscope, are placed in Cardinal signs.

The Fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. In Taurus we find no planet. The Sun and Mercury are in Leo, hence we enter them in the index under the heading “Fixed.” Scorpio has no planets but the Moon is in Aquarius. It is therefore also entered under “Fixed” in the index.

In this horoscope the Common signs Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces, contain no planets, but Virgo, the other Common sign, has Jupiter and Venus; hence these are entered under the list of planets in Common signs, as is also the Part of Fortune.
