be a ruler for a serious study of astrology or magick?
as defined by some - magick is a form of illusion
western astrology is considered "fairground entertainment"

'.... Mercurys effects go in many directions
depending on the changes of the zodia
and the interactions of the stars
and yields quite varied results...
as for the end result
Mercury will make everything capricious in outcome
and quite disturbed....' Vettius Valens THE ANTHOLOGY
