Medieval Solar Return Charts HELP NEEDED
« on: September 27, 2023, 09:38:56 AM »
Could anyone explain how to use the lord of the day column.  Im a bit confused as the 24th August is a jupiter day. I know im looking at it wrong but unsure how to make sense of it. Any help really appreciated.
I've attached photos. I do understand about planetary days and hours that rule. I live in the UK. I know I must be misunderstanding its use somehow but I just can't work it out.
Thank you in advance.

Hi there - I'm glad you sorted this out. I guess you found the help section:

3. Lord of the Day listing: the LoD is calculated by dividing the length of the solar return month by 12 and then allocating a planetary ruler to each day. This creates twelve 'days' of slightly varying lengths, but averaging around 2 1/2 days. The rulers follow the cycle of signs, beginning with the sign of the Lord of the Month.

Thanks for using Planetdance. Ed
