Neptune and Uranus, this inconvenience will be over come.

The horoscope has now been cast and is complete. Most astrologers now start to read, but to do this work thoroughly it is necessary to make an index such as will be found in a later chapter. In order to make the student thoroughly conversant with the manner of casting a horoscope we will first complete the figure cast in part for August 2, 8:15 P. M., for that horoscope offers certain peculiarities worthy of illustration.

To find the G. M. T. we add to the True Local

birthplace is west of Greenwich
5 52
G. M. T., Angust 3rd
2 15 A.M.

We have now performed the operations prescribed in Sections One and Two of our rule and we will next
