FThe Moon


Peculiarly, the next two planets discovered have, according to Sepharial, an axial rotation from cast to west, contrary to the order of the other bodies. It is in reference to the Gamut that Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are spoken of as belonging to the second octave: Uranus, the octave of Mercury; Neptune, of Venus; and Pluto, of Mars.

(Mark Knights, d. March 20, 1897 fr. asphyxiation, traced references to five of these "notes" in Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew" 1623 folio ed.)
