clearly, those who are "...very emotional..."

since CANCER is the "...domicile..." aka "...home..." of MOON
forms a major consideration
of the delineation
and it is important to keep in mind that
although tempting, may prove unreliable

The twelvefold circle has no beginning,

but it is so-held to begin with CANCER.

The image of the Crab is feminine, nocturnal, changeable, watery, amphibian, notable, silent, fertile, digging, with many limbs, two-coloured, rising backwards, lying and of the west wind. It indicates household, travel, obstacles, water and celebrations. Depending on the placement of the houseruler, men born under the influence of Cancer are small, popular, ambitious, wealthy, travelling and wandering because the Crab and the Moon do not walk straight, lavish, mindful, public, cheerful, with large face, wide head, sunken eyes, higher lower part of the body, crooked teeth, shaggy hair, dark, theatrical, constantly changing, luxurious, pleasure-loving, party-giving, unsteady of mind, getting involved in the many activities, saying one thing, but thinking another, hucksters, retailers, moneylenders, gardeners and those who cultivate plants.

Domicile of MOON, exaltation of Jupiter, depression of MARS, it controls the chest, the respiratory system, the upper gastrointestinal tract and the eyesight, especially the left eye. It causes skin diseases on account of the rough skin and blindness on account of the Beehive Cluster. It is like-empowered with Taurus and like-ascending with Libra, tall in the Northern Hemisphere and short in the Southern Hemisphere. It is summery, hot and dry for the north, and wintry, cold and moist for the south. Cancer commands Scorpio for the north and obeys it for the south. Cancer controls Noumidia, Carthage, Africa, Bithynia, Phrygia and Colchica. The back and the first two feet are rising up to the 7th degree, the next two feet and the Beehive Cluster up to the 13th, the head and the next two feet up to the 19th, the last two feet and the arms up to the 26th, and the pincers up to the 30th.

The first 7 belong to MARS - hostilities, dangers, travel
The next 6 belong to Venus - passionate, graceful
The next 6 belong to Mercury - intelligent, trade, speech
The next 7 belong to Jupiter - good fortune, some are religious
The final 4 belong to Saturn - irregular, restless

Eyes - Mercury and moderately MARS
Claws - Saturn and Mercury
Beehive Cluster - MARS and the MOON
Asellus Borealis and Asellus Australis - MARS and the Sun

Such, then, are the observations of the effects of the stars

as made by our predecessors.
