ENCHANTMENT OF THE SIGN

WHEN "THE SIGN" IS IN THE BODY, ESPECIALLY NEAR THE HEART,
ANIMALS ARE DIFFICULT TO HANDLE. THE SIGN STARTS IN THE
FEET, MOVING UP INTO THE BODY AND HEAD, THEN DOWN AGAIN.
IT IS ONLY IN THE FEET FOR A FEW DAYS. THE SIGN IS IN THE
HEART WHEN THE MOON IS BEGINNING TO GET FULL, AND IS THERE
SEVERAL DAYS AFTER IT BEGINS TO GET SMALLER. A CALENDAR
SHOWING MOON CHANGES CAN BE USED TO DETERMINE WHERE THE
SIGN IS, BY THOSE WHO KNOW HOW.
