|The twenty four questions go two by two, in
the places of their respective statements.
This mnemonic hand makes it easier to perform
the evacuation of the third figure, as well to work with the Book of the
Seven Planets, as the twelve loci signify twelve houses. The numbers one
to twelve are written on the left hand, showing where to put your thumb
to keep count of the sequential evacuation of the twelve propositions and
twenty-four questions of each camera of figure three. As you place your
left thumb on the first spot, on the middle phalange of the index finger,
count "one", then move your thumb to the next spot, number two. Keep counting
around the twelve places in the hand, until you are used to it, which may
take a few minutes.
THE MNEMONIC HAND USED IN ASTRONOMY
Here is a hand with large figures in roman
numerals signifying twelve houses, and arabic numerals signifying
the hours during which the Sun, and the whole sign of the zodiac that it
occupies, are found in the said houses, according to this whole house system,
where signs are identified with houses. Thus, between 5 and 7 am local
time, if the Sun is in Aries, from about March 20 to April 20, Aries is
in the first house, Taurus in the second, Gemini in the third house, and
so forth for the rest of the signs to Pisces, in the twelfth. When the
Sun moves into Taurus around April 21, then from 5 to 7 am, Taurus is in
the first house, Gemini in the second, etc... and Aries in the twelfth.
And likewise for the other signs of the zodiac during the year, which always
occupy the first house between 5 and 7 am while the Sun occupies them.
And in the daily cycle, the monthly Sun sign moves clockwise around the
12 houses in the hand: from 7 to 9 am the Sun sign is in the twelth house,
then in the eleventh house from 9 to 11 am, and so forth, moving back one
house every two hours.
