Each orchestral group is associated with one of elements:
percussion with the earth,
others in the column Instr.

Within each orchestral group instruments are associated with certain sub-elements:
tubular bells, double bass, bassoon, tuba with the earth,
others in the column Instr.

Each part of each symphony has two themes: the main one (reflecting the name of the corresponding part) and the secondary one from the Enochian Key that corresponds to the sub-element. Thus, the secondary themes were taken as follows: S1 1 from the 5th Key others in the column E.K.
 
Each part of each symphony starts with the short replica of the main theme  played by the sub-elements associated instrument.
 
Each part of each symphony is finished with the counterpoint of the short replicas of all the main themes from this symphony played by the sub-elements associated instruments. Thus all the parts of each symphony have the same final replica.
 
The simple exposition is followed by the development in seven parts, and each part is associated with the astrological symbol of a planet:
The 1st part of the development (Sun) simultaneous development of the main and the secondary themes; 
The 2nd part (Moon) inclusion of the inversion of the main theme;
The 3rd part (Mars) inclusion of the inversion of the secondary theme;
The 4th part (Mercury) inclusion of the retrograde of the main theme;
The 5th part (Jupiter) inclusion of the retrograde of the secondary theme;
The 6th part (Venus) inclusion of the retrograde inversion of the main theme;
The 7th part (Saturn) inclusion of the retrograde inversion of the secondary theme.

The reprise consists of the main theme only and is finished with the above counterpoint replica .
