Determining the Length of Planetary Hours
Planetary Hours

1. Divide the number of minutes between sunrise and sunset by 12. This gives you the length of daylight hours.
2. Subtract the number of minutes in a daylight magickal hour from 120 (2 regular hours). This gives you the number of minutes in a nighttime hour.

For example, Sunrise = 5 a.m., Sunset = 7 p.m.
14 hours of daylight x 60 minutes = 840 minutes.
840 minutes divided by 12 hours = 70 minutes per daylight hour.
120 (two regular hours) 70 minutes per daylight hour = 50 minutes per nighttime hour.
