Total of the Influences: how many positives how many negatives
Elements of the Zodiac Signs: F = fire • A = air • W = water • E = earth; and how many planets in each.

Neutral Days: questionable, positive and negative numbers are the same.
Passive Days: avoid starting, negative number is larger.

To adjust the start-time to your location, add (E of 94° W), or subtract (W of 94° W), 4 minutes time,
per degree of Longitude, from your 10:00 time.
This info will be close for all other latitudes.
If the positive and negative count is nearly equal you may
want to recalculate for your specific latitude and longitute.
Positive / negative count aspects based on 7° orb, 5° orb for sextiles.
