explanation of the table.

Every planet has two signs for his houses, except Sol and Luna; they but one each. T? has Vf and rs; and % has $ and K 5 c? has T and it].; ? has q and £ has n and wg. One of these houses is called diurnal, noted in the second eolumn by the letter D; the other is nocturnal, noted by the letter N. The planets have their exaltations, as the third column points out: thus © in 19 T; ]) in 3 0; Q in 3 degrees n, &c. are exalted. These twelve signs are divided into tour triplicities. The fourth column tells you which planet or planets, both night and day, governs each triplicity; as over against s, m., X* you find ¿3 who governs by day and night in that triplicity; and over against T, f, you find © and If., viz. that © has domination by day, and 7/ by night, in that triplicity : the first six degrees of r are the terms of 3/, from six to fourteen, the terms of ?, &c. &c. Over against T, iu the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth columns, you find S 10, © 20, ? 30; viz. the first ten degrees of r are the tace of <J; from ten to twenty, the face of ©; from twenty to thirty, the face of ?, &c.

In the thirteenth column, over against T, you find ? detriment, viz. $ being in t, is in a sign opposite to one of her own houses, and so is said to be in her detriment. In the 14th column, over against r, you find 1?, over his head fall, that is, ?2 when he is in t is opposite to his exaltation, and so is nnfortunate, &c. Though these things are expressed in the nature of the planets already, yet this table makes it appear more evident to the eye, and is useful for reference.
