The hora chart below depicts the day and the planet regulating the hour at any particular time of day. Click on the correct square to learn the horaphala at any hour on any weekday. You'll need to know the dawn time at your location on that particular day to do this. The local dawn time for your location may be found in your local newspaper. If there is no newspaper, call or go online to a website that provides daily weather reports in your area.
Note: Each row of the chart represents a planet and its quality. A planet is indicated by the part of the chart it occupies (see list below). Planets influence our moods, emotions, mental capacity, and physical health. The effects vary depending on which part of the chart they occupy. For example, Saturn in Capricorn causes practicality and ambition; Jupiter in Sagittarius gives rise to optimism and expansion; while Uranus in Aries brings about unexpected changes. The lines between the squares represent the hours between sunrise and sunset. At some point during those hours, a planet will come into contact with one of the elements listed beside each square.
Each element has its own unique qualities that define how planets affect them. These can be seen by looking at the specific directions given for each element in the section titled "Elements in Direction". For example, Earth signs are said to suffer from laziness, but also from anxiety when facing an unfinished project or task. Fire signs are told to beware of anger because it can lead to destruction.
If the general time of day is known, the location of the sun in the sky may be used to identify east and west. The sun rises in the east and travels higher in the morning. It sets about in the west in the evening. From these observations alone it is possible to determine which way is east and which way is west.
The sun's position can also be used to identify the hours before you go outside. When the sun is over the horizon, it is still bright out. As it gets closer to sunset, its brightness decreases until it reaches zero at sunset. After sunset, the sun becomes more and more visible as it sinks low on the horizon until it disappears completely at midnight.
These are just a few of the many ways the position of the sun can be used to keep track of time. As you learn more about the moon and stars, so you will learn more about time itself.
You can tell what time it is by looking at the symbols on the clock. For example, when the yellow dot is directly beneath the first cloud, it is 10 a.m., which is the time to enter an arena event. Every day, your Digimon falls asleep at the same time and wakes up at the same time. When they fall asleep, the screen goes black for eight hours. When they wake up, it returns you to the main menu.
There are five dots on the clock face. The middle three dots rotate independently of each other. The top dot moves back and forth along with the bottom two dots. When the top dot is at 12 o'clock, that means it's midnight. When the top dot is at 6 o'clock, that means it's noon. The digits "10" and "6" appear below the top and bottom dots respectively. These indicate the time during waking and sleeping periods.
When you press the Start button, the DigiMon you've chosen will awaken from its sleep mode. It will also eat any food it found while sleeping. If you want your Digimon to sleep until later, you need to go to the Bedroom menu and choose whether you want them to sleep outside or inside the house. If they sleep outside, they'll fall asleep under a tree or in a field. They won't wake up until morning even if someone calls your name into the microphone attached to the house phone.
You may also calculate the time by calculating the angle of the Southern Cross in your brain. Examine the 'hour' displayed by the celestial hour-hand (top star): straight up and down is 12 o'clock, horizontal (East) is 9 o'clock, and so on. The minute hand of your watch or clock will indicate the correct time if you know what direction to look.
Now, find the Southern Cross. It's not hard - it's that little white dot just south of west. Once found, you can repeat this process again tomorrow night and every night until Christmas Day.
The stars don't move around much during the day, so when you look up at the sky tonight you should still be able to see the same ones as last night. But the Moon moves across the face of the sky slowly, so by the time it reaches its highest point in late December it will have passed half way between the Earth and the Sun. By early January it will have moved into solar orbit and won't rise anymore.
The Milky Way appears over different parts of the world at about the same time each night, so if you want to see it somewhere else then just look up when it's here! The only thing that varies from night to night is the shape of the Earth itself. Where it is in relation to the rest of the Universe depends on where you are looking from.
