Gann said "We use tliree figures in geometry: the circle, the square and the triangle. We get the square and triangle points of a circle to determine points of time, price and space resistance; we use the circle of 360° degrees to measure time and price". Ganns emblem was a square and triangle inside a circle (see the cover page for an example). Incorporating the Gann Emblem with the square root technique, allows us to calculate coordinates or numbers that are Conjunct (360° = +/- 2 from the root). Opposition (180° = +/- I from root #), Trine (120° = +/-0.666)& (240° =+/- 1.333) or Square (90° = +/- 0.5) & (270° = +/- 1.5). This technique is extremely fast and useful for finding coordinate cells (pyramid blocks) on the Square of Nine that have a geometrical relationship to a previous position on the chart. Gann also used these same geometric relationships to divide the outer calendar circle that circumscribes the Square of Nine. Gaim basically divided the Earths 360-degree orbital cycle around the Sun into quarters and thirds to fmd geometric relationships in terms of time as well. The quarter divisions are 90, 180, 270, 360 degrees. The one-third divisions are 120, 240 and 360 degrees. Because the Earth on average will move about l-degree per day, Gann used these numbers as calendar days, which he added to the dates of previous tops and bottoms to find dates in the fiiture that had a mathematical or geometrical relationship to past highs and lows.

Gann believed that the niunbers that connected the square base of the pyramid (the 4 diagonal comers "X" of the square, i.e. comer #s.) to the "main center" and also the numbers that ran straight vertical and horizontal from the "gravity center" in the form of a cross (cardinal numbers "+") were very important in balancing "Price & Time" on the wheel. He was basically looking for the astronomical longitudes of the Sun or Earth

to balance with price on these key angles. Remember, Pythagoras said " Units in a circle or in a square are related to each other in terms of Space & Time at specific points." Gann often quoted the Bible, Emerson, Pythagoras and Faraday to name a few. Basically, he was pointing the reader ofhis works to clues that would allow his student to unlock the code ofhis writing style.

Because many readers of this course are probably not familiar with using longitude, planets or the divisions of the zodiac, we give the following explanation. The zodiac is an imaginary circle based upon the apparent path of the sun as it appears to rise and set in circular motion against the backdrop of the constellations or stars. This is similar to the equator being an imaginary circle at the center of our planet. We measure longitude on earth in degrees and minutes of the imaginary circle (Equator) west of Greenwich England, which represents the 0° starting point of the circle.

The zodiac is measured in a similar fashion. We measure the heavens in an imaginary 360° circle called the zodiac. It is measured in degrees and minutes from 0° Aries, which is the location of the Sun at the Vernal Equinox, i.e. spring. The zodiac is divided into 12 equal divisions of 30° each. Aries runs from 0° to 30°, Taurus runs 30° to 60°, Gemini runs 60° to 90°, Cancer runs 90° to 120°, Leo runs 120° to 150°, Virgo runs 150° to 180°, Libra runs 180° to 210°, Scorpio runs 210° to 240°, Sagittarius runs 240° to 270°, Capricorn runs 270° to 300°, Aquarius runs 300° to 330° and Pisces runs 330° to 360° or back to 0° Aries.

If you look at your Square of Nine chart, you will see the date March 21, at the 9 oclock position. This is the date that the Sun appears to be at 0° Aries, beginning the natural year. "Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world", the season of spring

takes away the sins of winter. Moving in a clockwise fashion to the top left comer, you find the date May a.k.a. Cinco de Mayo. On this day, the Sun appears to be at 15" of Taums. The next date at the top of the chart in the 12 oclock position is June 2V\ This is the Summer Solstice, which is the longest day of the year for the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun appears to be at 0° of Cancer on this date. The top right hand comer of the chart has the date August S*". The Sun now appears to be at 15° of Leo. On the right hand side of the chart at the 3 oclock position is the date September 22". This date is the Autumnal Equinox, which begins the season of fall and the sun literally begins to fall below the Earths equator, i.e. declination. The Sun appears to be at 0° of Libra on this day. Moving down to the bottom right hand comer of the chart, the date November " appears. The Sun is now at 15° of Scorpio. The bottom of the chart at the 6 oclock position has the date December 2 , which is the Winter Solstice. This is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere marking the season of winter. The Sun appears to be at 0° Capricorn on this date. Moving over to the bottom left hand comer, we see the date Febmary 4. The Sun appears to be at 15° Aquarius on this date. Moving up takes us full circle or back to 0° Aries or March 21.

Notice how the four seasons are aligned with the cardinal "+" numbers of the Square of Nine. This relationship allows the user of the Square of Nine chart to correlate the Sun or other planetary longitudes to the numbers on the chart with a measure of time. The user can also quickly locate dates that are square (90° and 270°), opposite (180°) or trine (120° and 240°) to a past date based upon the apparent longitude of the Sun.
