5Of course, it is necessary to combine these indications with all the other evidence in the horoscope as is always done in arriving at a synthesis of all the positions and configurations in the astrological chart. As regards the association of humidity, heat, dryness, and cold with the Moon, it is the nonn, since this planet plays the principal role in astro-meteorology. All the traditions have left us thousands of rules on the subject, all in need of verification. The Arabs state, for example, that "eleven times out of twelve, the weather during the duration of the lunar month behaves as it did on the fifth day of the cycle, if the sixth day was the same as the fifth.

6Le Centiloque, Paris, 1914, p. 31. Julevno, the translator, adds the following note to this aphorism :
"It must be mentioned that in this aphorism, Ptolemy sets aside the Sun with its individual effect on the spirit and vitality, ¡n order to concentrate on the influence of the Moon, and of its particular action on the moist principle, the Lymph, which makes up the vegetative life of living things or the nourishing juice of the body and which is subject to the increase and decrease of the Moon. From the first quarter up to the middle of the full Moon, when this planet is being warmed progressively by the rays of the Sun, it increases and develops with its influence the nourishing force of bodies.

Conversely, in the waning period of the Moon, from the full Moon to the end of the first quarter, opposite effects are evidenced: plant life loses its vigor, hair grows with difficulty, shellfish are less full, blood flows more gently in the veins, fevers lose their strength, wounds heal more rapidly, and further, a part of a tree, if hacked off will dry out more quickly and will be preserved from roi . .

nThese interpretations are for the unequal Houses, based on the progression explained earlier Consequently it is impossible for u< to use all the documents pertaining to the daily variation» of lunar influence. Besides, these documents use different lumbers of days: the manuscript of 12.r>0, mentioned above, is for thirty days of the lunar month, while the Arab and Touareg lists, given by F. Rolt-Wheeler in his "Cours," number twenty-nine days. G. Muchery published in Secrets of March, 1936, a long list of interpretations for each of the thirty lunar days.
