Table and explanation of natural dignities and debilities

1. Houses
Leo is summery house of Sun
Cancer is northern house of Moon
Capricorn and Aquarius are wintry houses of Saturn
Sagittarius and Pisces are windy houses of Jupiter
Aries and Scorpio are stormy houses of Mars
Taurus and Libra are temperate houses of Venus
Gemini and Virgo are changeable houses of Mercury

Leo is heating and moderately drying just like the Sun.
Cancer, by reason of being the most northern place receives an admixture of extreme northern winds which are cold and moist, so it is constituted the house of the Moon.
Capricorn and Aquarius are wintry houses of Saturn.
Sagittarius and Pisces are windy houses of Jupiter that anticipate seasons with greater moisture (winter and spring) and heat (spring).
Aries and Scorpio are productive of storms, Aries produces great heat, while Scorpio produces the most dryness, so they are related to Mars.
Taurus and Libra are temperate (in weather and temperature) so they are related to Venus.
Gemini and Virgo are changeable houses of Mercury that anticipate seasons with greater dryness (summer and autumn) from seasons with good weather.

2. Elevations
Aries is heating elevation of Sun
Taurus is vernal elevation of Moon
Libra is cooling elevation of Saturn
Cancer is northern elevation of Jupiter
Capricorn is southern elevation of Mars
Pisces is moistening elevation of Venus
Virgo is drying elevation of Mercury

Aries is heating elevation, not in quantity (which is the place of Leo), but in quality, as this is the place of the vernal equinox which causes the greatest increase of heat.
Taurus is the most moistening of all places so it is predominated by both moistening planets.
Libra is cooling elevation, not in quantity (which is the place of Aquarius), but in quality, as this is the place of the autumnal equinox which causes the greatest increase of cold.
Cancer is northern elevation of Jupiter, because this place is summery and at the same time receives an admixture of extreme northern winds which are moist and fecund.
Capricorn is southern elevation of Mars, because this place receives an admixture of extreme southern winds which are burning, drying and destructive, by reason of being the most southern place.
Pisces is moistening elevation of Venus, again, not in quantity, but in quality, this place precedes the moistening spring.
Virgo is drying elevation of Mercury, again, not in quantity, but in quality, this place precedes the drying autumn. Virgo is related twice to Mercury.

3. Depressions
Libra is cooling depression of Sun
Scorpio is autumnal depression of Moon
Aries is heating depression of Saturn
Capricorn is southern depression of Jupiter
Cancer is northern depression of Mars
Virgo is drying depression of Venus
Pisces is moistening depression of Mercury

Libra is cooling depression, not in quantity (which is the place of Aquarius), but in quality, as this is the place of the autumnal equinox which causes the greatest increase of cold.
Scorpio is the most drying of all places and it is predominated twice by Mars.
Aries is heating depression, not in quantity (which is the place of Leo), but in quality, as this is the place of the vernal equinox which causes the greatest increase of heat.
Capricorn is southern depression of Jupiter, because this place is wintry and at the same time receives an admixture of extreme southern winds which are burning, drying and destructive.
Cancer is northern depression of Mars, because this place receives an admixture of extreme northern winds which are moist and fecund.
Virgo is drying depression of Venus, again, not in quantity, but in quality, this place precedes the drying autumn.
Pisces is moistening depression of Mercury, again, not in quantity, but in quality, this place precedes the moistening spring.

4. Trigons
Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are southern wind trigon of Sun by day and Jupiter by night
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are western wind trigon of Venus by day and Moon by night
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are northern wind trigon of Saturn by day and Mercury by night
Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are eastern wind trigon of Mars

Because winds always predominate an exact direction, and because there are four possible general directions of winds, the twelve places are sharply pointed in groups of three separated by four places, that is by the figure of the trigon.

Aries + Leo + Sagittarius = 1 Moisture + 1/2 Heat + 1 Heat + 1/2 Dryness + 1 Dryness + 1/2 Cold = 1 Heat + 1/2 Dryness (South or Fire)
Taurus + Virgo + Capricorn = 1 Moisture + 1/2 Heat + 1 Heat + 1/2 Dryness + 1 Cold + 1/2 Moisture = 1 Moisture + 1/2 Heat (West or Air)
Gemini + Libra + Aquarius = 1 Moisture + 1/2 Heat + 1 Dryness + 1/2 Cold + 1 Cold + 1/2 Moisture = 1 Cold + 1/2 Moisture (North or Water)
Cancer + Scorpio + Pisces = 1 Heat + 1/2 Dryness + 1 Dryness + 1/2 Cold + 1 Cold + 1/2 Moisture = 1 Dryness + 1/2 Cold (East or Earth)

Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are southern wind trigon of Sun by day and Jupiter by night, more moistening by night due to the moisture of the night.
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are western wind trigon of Venus by day and Moon by night, more cooling by night due to the cold of the night.
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are northern wind trigon of Saturn by day and Mercury by night, more moistening by night due to the moisture of the night.
Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are eastern wind trigon of Mars both by day and by night, as only Mars produces such drying and maleficent winds.

Of course, for the Southern Hemisphere, the equatorial winds of Sun and Jupiter become northern, and the polar winds of Saturn and Mercury become southern, as the direction of their two angles are reversed.

5. Bounds
Aries, Leo and Sagittarius by day give Sun 7.5, Venus 7.5, Saturn 7.5 and Mars 7.5
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn by day give Venus 7.5, Saturn 7.5, Mars 7.5 and Sun 7.5
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius by day give Saturn 7.5, Mars 7.5, Sun 7.5 and Venus 7.5
Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces by day give Mars 7.5, Sun 7.5, Venus 7.5 and Saturn 7.5

Aries, Leo and Sagittarius by night give Jupiter 7.5, Moon 7.5, Mercury 7.5 and Mars 7.5
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn by night give Moon 7.5, Mercury 7.5, Mars 7.5 and Jupiter 7.5
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius by night give Mercury 7.5, Mars 7.5, Jupiter 7.5 and Moon 7.5
Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces by night give Mars 7.5, Jupiter 7.5, Moon 7.5 and Mercury 7.5

Because the winds often experience increase of power through predomination, or stillness through predomination of the contrary wind, or admixture through predomination of neighbouring winds, the places are divided into four equal bounds of 7.5 - so that the first bound is the wind blowing with twice the power, the second bound is the wind receiving an admixture from the wind of the following angle, the third bound is the wind receiving an admixture of the wind from the opposite angle that produces stillness, and the fourth bound is the wind receiving an admixture from the wind of the preceding angle. One can observe this change from the powers of the planets.
