Now that we have obtained a pretty fair and accurate idea of the three main elements of Astrological lore, to-wit: The Signs of the Zodiac, the Planets and the Solar Houses, I want to enter into some further revelations which you will not find in any other works of the kind published on this side of the water or in England. I refer to the meanings given to the divisions of the 12 Signs of the Zodiac.

You must be told first, that the Egyptian priests — who became the depositories and perfectors of the ancient science of predicting man’s fate from the stars — had placed each Zodiacal period of 30 days under the guardianship of one of the supernatural beings we call “genii.” They further divided each sign into periods of 10 days, assuming some particular spirit as the power dominating over each of these spaces of 10 days. Finally, each day had its demigod in charge and its separate interpretation.
