5. Having thus completed the figure, as far as regards the signs of the zodiac, it now remains to place in the planets as they may be situated. The most distant from the © is BJi, whose longitude is generally given in the ephemeris for each ten days, and if the time of the figure fall between it, it must be found by proportion. When his longitude is found, write it in the figure, thus, I£L 13° 19', just by the cusp of the house, which falls in the same sign in which BJ is found. If the cusp be farther on than the planet in the sign, place the planet outside the cusp ; but if the planet be the farthest advanced in the sign, place it inside the cusp. After having entered JjJ, enter in the same way ^, then ©, ? 8 and the J. To find the exact longitude of these seven, which is usually given for the noon of each day, find the distance they travel in longitude between the two noons preceding and succeeding the time of erecting the figure; and then take the proportional part for the time after the previous noon, and add it to, (or if the planet be retrograde subtract it from), the planet's longitude for the previous noon.

6. Find the longitude of Q in the same manner, and enter it accordingly, and place 8 in the sign and degree and minute exactly opposite thereto.

7. If it be a horary question, calculate the place of 0, and enter it accordingly; when the figure of heaven will be complete. But if it be a nativity, you must calculate the 0 according to the rule given, first having prepared a Speculum, or Table of Data, as taught in Chap. 9 of the Grammar of Astrology.
