There are three popular meanings of G:
one is that it means “five attributes” of the day.
They are:
1)Ending Moment (EM) of elongation of the Moon, the lunar day , the angular relationship between Sun and Moon ( True Moon minus True Sun).
2)EM of asterism of the day, that is, the stellar mansion in which Moon is located for an observer on Earth.
3)EM of the angular relationship between Sun and Moon( True Moon plus True Sun).
4)EM of half of elongation of the Moon, the lunar day , the angular relationship between Sun and Moon

Monier-Williams gives “solar day” instead as the fifth limb. Some people enumerate days of the week instead.ID G.
