The North Pole.1Literally, "the North."

I see the star that turns above the Pole2the North Star
with the seven and two [stars] that go around it.
This [star] is what sailors often need to track
when there is no daylight.
He who looks for it, and wishes to find it,
should turn his eyes toward the mouth of a horn,3the Great Bear or Big Dipper
and he who gets close enough to see them overhead
will feel increasing cold and icy extremities.

The South Pole.4Literally, "the other North [Pole]."

On the opposite side [of the globe], there is the other pole
which is also cold by nature
and you cannot see it from our region
because there is an immense desert between us and it [the South Pole].
{Celestial Equator5https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celestial_equator}And that [pole] is always under a single circle [the equator]
which makes night and day of the same length.
Between this hot zone and the two cold ones
are the places inhabited by people.


Within this giant circle
there is an infinite number of stars,
and each of them exerts an influence
upon mortal bodies and earthly places.
However, few [people] understand the science,
since those who prophesy about
what will happen in the future do not know all about
the nature of the stars, and they often get confused.
