Re: Lord of the hour

Excellent question!

I would ignore the *real* position of the Sun when looking at the Lord of the Hour; just follow the chart, because the Hour Lords do not change with the seasons, they simply repeat over and over.

However, looking at the chart itself, if the Sun is still above the horizon at your latitude (even if the Hours chart tells you it's night), you will have a diurnal chart; and a nocturnal one if the Sun is below the horizon.

It sometimes seems a bit paradoxical; try not to think about it over-much!
