Quote:
43. Dignity
Sun and Moon predominate dignity
Sun predominates dignity with the masculine generative power, that one that is more external and social.
Moon cooperates with the feminine generative power, that one that is more internal and mental.

Quote:
Sun and Moon masculine, powerful and predominated by powerful planets, and configured with Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus and Mercury make kings, when planets are powerful and operative, they continue to be great, powerful, and world-rulers, and they will be most distinguished when all planets are powerful, when Sun is masculine, and Moon is feminine, and only one of the two is powerful or predominated by powerful planets, they will be merely generals, with power over life and death, when configured planets are operative and inoperative, they will be merely great and enjoy partial dignities, high priesthood, superintendence, and military command, not those of first rank, when Sun and Moon are not powerful or predominated by powerful planets, they will not attain the more conspicuous honours, but rather civil leadership or moderate advancement in their careers, when the configured planets are inoperative, they are rendered obscure and without preferment, and they will be entirely humble and insignificant when Sun and Moon are feminine, inoperative and predominated by inoperative planets, and not configured with beneficent planets
Masculine and powerful rulers of the universe give greater dignity, the accidental predominators cooperate, especially with configurations, for the same reason as before, that perfect configurations are carried out by primary motion. Since there are very many conditions intermediate between these grades, one must estimate them from the specific qualities of the luminaries themselves and the variation in the manner of cooperation of accidental predominators, by configuration or otherwise.

Quote:
Sun, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury as morning planet give more independence and security
Moon, Saturn, Mars and Mercury as evening planet give more dependency and less security
Beneficent and masculine common planets give more independence and security.
Maleficent and feminine common planets give more dependency and less security.

Quote:
Saturn gives wealth, property and shipping ventures
Jupiter gives governorship, honours and gifts from others
Mars gives governorship, command and fears of subordinates
Venus gives beauty, honours and gifts from others
Mercury gives intelligence, eloquence and trade
Saturn, again, is related to earth and water, Jupiter to air and fire, Mars to fire and earth, Venus to air, and Mercury to the mental qualities produced by the alternation of earth and air.

Quote:
Predominators configured with Jupiter and Venus indicate dignity without downfall
Predominators in assembly, tetragon or diameter with Saturn and Mars indicate downfall
Essential and less so accidental.

Quote:
44. Action
Sun and Midheaven predominate action
Satun indicates property, agriculture, subordination, mining and seamanship
Saturn and Jupiter indicate property, agriculture, administration, management and philosophy
Saturn and Mars indicate seamanship, cooking, subordination, criminality and funerals
Saturn and Venus indicate merchandise, accommodation, weaving, religion and pharmacy
Saturn and Mercury indicate property, agriculture, measuring, religion and travel
Jupiter indicates magnanimity, governorship, administration, management and law
Jupiter and Mars indicate command, governorship, supervision, military operations and athletics
Jupiter and Venus indicate leadership, honours, banking, advancement from others and athletics
Jupiter and Mercury indicate eloquence, teaching, counseling, philosophy and law
Mars indicates strength, agriculture, construction, military operations and athletics
Mars and Venus indicate grace, cooking, winemaking, dancing and pharmacy
Mars and Mercury indicate command, medicine, surgery, criminality and athletics
Venus indicates grace, music, clothing, ornaments and beauty
Venus and Mercury indicate grace, music, poetry, theatre and beauty
Mercury indicates eloquence, teaching, science, interpretation and trade
Moon and Mercury indicate prophecy, magic, astrology, divination and sorcery
Accidental predominators indicate the more conspicuous of actions for the nativity, and not all occasional or common actions.

Quote:
Powerful predominators configured with Jupiter and Venus make dignified, glorious, profitable, unerring and gracious action, inoperative predominators in assembly, tetragon and diameter with Saturn and Mars make humble, inglorious, profitless, fallible and toilsome action
Powerful essential and accidental predominators produce independent action, the inoperative ones produce subordinate action, the configurations of beneficent or maleficent planets cooperate with dignity or disgrace.

Quote:
Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn indicate agriculture, interpretation, trade and exchange
Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius indicate foundations, property, command and stability
Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces indicate grace, music, cooking and versatility
This division is based on the qualities of places.

Quote:
45. Marriage
Moon predominates marriage for men, Sun predominates marriage for women
The rulers of the universe predominate marriage, the feminine one for wives, the masculine one for husbands. Additional reasons are the natural differences in sexual selection, the one more related to dignity and social status, the other to mind and fertility.

Quote:
Moon in first or third quarter makes men who marry young or marry younger women, in second or fourth quarter, it makes men who marry late or marry older women, when it is in solid places and predominated by planets in solid places, it makes them men of one marriage, but when it is in dual places and predominated by planets in dual places, it makes them marry more than once, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury in configuration cause good marriage, Saturn and Mars in assembly, tetragon and diameter cause the opposite, Saturn makes the wives hardworking and stern, Jupiter makes them dignified and good managers, Mars makes them bold and unruly, Venus make them cheerful, beautiful and charming, Mercury makes them intelligent and keen, Venus with Saturn, Jupiter or Mercury make them thrifty and affectionate to their husbands and children, Venus with Mars make them easily roused to wrath, unstable and unfeeling, predominators indicate position
The first and third quarter of the Moon are eastern, as they occupy the first halves of the semicircles, the second and fourth quarter are western, as they occupy the second halves of the semicircles. Predominators indicate position in the same way as for affairs, not through the planets themselves as for relatives, but through the disposition of the subject which they influence. The configurations of planets have the most influence in this matter.

Quote:
Sun as eastern planet makes women who marry young or marry younger men, as western planet, it makes women who marry late or marry older men, when it is in solid places and predominated by planets in solid places, it makes them women of one marriage, but when it is in dual places and predominated by planets in dual places, it makes them marry more than once, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury in configuration cause good marriage, Saturn and Mars in assembly, tetragon and diameter cause the opposite, Saturn makes the husbands sedate, useful and hardworking, Jupiter makes them dignified and magnanimous, Mars makes them men of action, lacking in affection, and unruly, Venus makes them elegant and handsome, Mercury makes them thrifty and practical, Venus with Saturn make them sluggish and weak in sexual relations, and Venus with Mars make them ardent, impetuous and adulterous, Venus with Mercury make them infatuated with boys
Distinctions are made based on what are more proper qualities for men and women.

Quote:
Sun and Moon of both nativities in assemblies, hexagons and trigons indicate lasting marriages, particularly when the Moon of the husband is in assembly, hexagon or trigon with the Sun of the wife, divorces on slight pretexts and complete alienations occur when they are in disharmonious configurations or without configuration, when Jupiter and Venus are configured with the Sun and the Moon in favourable configuration, they keep the marriage pleasant, agreeable, and profitable, when Saturn and Mars are in assembly, tetragon and diameter with Sun and Moon in favourable configuration, the marriage will be quarrelsome, unpleasant, and unprofitable, when Jupiter and Venus are configured with Sun and Moon in unfavourable configuration, they do not completely terminate the marriage, but bring about renewals and recollections which preserve kindness and affection, but when Saturn and Mars are in assembly, tetragon or diameter with Sun and Moon in unfavourable configuration, they cause divorce with abuse and violence, Saturn and Venus cause incestuous marriage when predominating all predominators, Mercury adds notoriety to the above
Mercury adds notoriety, especially through making effects more taut, Saturn and Venus (cold and moisture) together predominating essential and accidental predominators (as in common places like Libra and Capricorn and with configurations) make incestuous marriages between relatives that depend on the customs of the nation and region, if they do not allow for such relations, this will not occur.

Quote:
46. Children
Midheaven predominates children
Moon, Jupiter and Venus configured indicate abundance of children
Mercury as morning planet configured indicates abundance of children
Sun, Saturn and Mars in assembly, tetragon or diameter indicate lack of children
Mercury as evening planet in assembly, tetragon or diameter indicates lack of children
Donative planets in dual places and predominating the Midheaven indicate even more children

Midheaven and donative planets in dual places and predominated by planets in dual places cause multiple births, the number is indicated by the number of the planets, and the sex by their natures

Masculine donative planets give male children
Feminine donative planets give female children
Morning and eastern donative planets give first-born children
Evening and western donative planets give later-born children

Donative planets powerful and predominated by powerful planets indicate distinguished children
Donative planets operative and predominated by operative planets indicate moderate positions
Donative planets inoperative and predominated by inoperative planets indicate low positions

Donative planets powerful and configured with Jupiter and Venus cause excellent longevity
Donative planets operative and configured with Jupiter and Venus cause fortunate longevity
Donative planets inoperative and configured with Jupiter and Venus cause average longevity

Saturn and Mars powerful in assembly, tetragon or diameter with them cause short longevity
Saturn and Mars operative in assembly tetragon or diameter with them cause injuries or diseases
Saturn and Mars inoperative in assembly, tetragon or diameter with them cause bodily weakness

Saturn makes death or injuries and diseases by cold and moderate dryness
Mars makes sudden death or injuries and diseases by dryness and burning
Saturn and Mars make conspicuous death or injuries and diseases by burning, cutting and the like

Donative planets in assembly, hexagon or trigon with the Hour-Marker indicate friendly children
Donative planets without configuration with the Hour-Marker indicate unsympathetic children
Donative planets in tetragon or diameter with the Hour-Marker indicate quarrelsome children

Donative planets in assembly, hexagon or trigon with the Lot indicate friendly children
Donative planets without configuration with the Lot indicate unsympathetic children
Donative planets in tetragon or diameter with the Lot indicate quarrelsome children

Donative planets in assembly, hexagon or trigon with each other indicate friendly siblings
Donative planets without configuration with each other indicate unsympathetic siblings
Donative planets in tetragon or diameter with each other indicate quarrelsome siblings

Donative planets are Hour-Markers of the children
The same natural judgement is made as with siblings, except also noting the disposition of the children to each other.

Quote:
47. Friendship
Hour-Marker, Sun, Moon and Lot of Fortune of two nativities in assemblies, hexagons or trigons with each other bring about secure and indissoluble sympathy unbroken by any quarrel, but when they are in tetragons or diameters, they produce the deepest enmities and lasting contentions, and there is greater benefit from friendship and greater success in the enmity in that nativity in which the authoritative placements are more powerful and have the configurations of Jupiter and Venus

Hour-Marker indicates friendship from pleasure
Sun and Moon indicate friendship from choice
Lot of Fortune indicates friendship from need
Now, the Midheaven itself predominates friendship and its predominators may indicate some general characteristics of friends or enemies (Saturn - elders and avaricious or ignoble men, Jupiter - superiors and dignified or religious people, Mars - soldiers and men of action, Sun - kings and governors, Venus - distinguished women and graceful individuals, Mercury - eloquent individuals and men of business, Moon - women of common rank etc. with their positions indicating distinction and their places and predominations indicating number), but since people have countless and different possible meetings and associations throughout their lives, the main focus in this inquiry is on the configurations or lack of, between the four authoritative places, whereas particulars are best judged from the chronocrators of the Midheaven.

Quote:
Saturn, Mars and Mercury as evening planet produce occasional spells of silence and disparaging talk in friendship when passing with assembly, tetragon or diameter, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury as morning planet produce truces and reconciliations in enmity when passing with configurations
This applies to these planets when present both at the nativity and in transit.

Quote:
Lot of Fortune predominates servants in nativities of masters and masters in nativities of servants
Lot of Fortune in assembly, hexagon or trigon with predominators indicate favourable sympathy
Lot of Fortune without configuration with predominators indicate unsympathetic relationship
Lot of Fortune in tetragon or diameter with predominators indicate unfavourable hostility
Servants are related to the livelihood of masters, and masters are related to the livelihood of servants.

Quote:
48. Travel
Hour-Marker predominates travel
Sun, Moon and Lot of Fortune pre-ascending cause travel
Pre-ascension of the Hour-Marker indicates travel to the eastern regions
Pre-ascension of the Midheaven indicates travel to the southern regions
Pre-ascension of the Setting indicates travel to the western regions
Pre-ascension of the Anti-Midheaven indicates travel to the northern regions
Solid places indicate occasional travel, dual places indicate continuous travel
Hour-Marker predominates travel because it predominates the body.

Pre-ascensions and their directions indicate the more conspicuous of travels, as for occasional or common travel, it is best judged from the chronocrators of the Hour-Marker with the times.

Quote:
Jupiter and Venus in configuration cause honourable and profitable travel, quick and unimpeded return, particularly when they are powerful, Saturn and Mars in assembly, tetragon and diameter cause laborious and dangerous travel, and difficult return, particularly when they are powerful

Jupiter and Venus make the journeys not only safe, but also pleasant, for the subjects will be sent on their way by the chief men of the country or by the resources of their friends, and favourable conditions of the weather and abundance of supplies will also aid them, with Mercury configured they indicate profits, gifts, and honours, particularly when they are powerful and predominating

Saturn and Mars make the results useless and will involve the subjects in great dangers, through lack of provisions and unhealthy conditions with equinoctial and solstitial places, through falling from heights and the assaults of winds with solid places, through piracy, plots and robberies with dual places, through hard going with airy places, through desert region with fiery places, through attacks of beasts and earthquakes with earthy places, through unfortunate voyages and shipwreck with watery places, with Mercury in assembly, tetragon and diameter they cause dangers through the weather, dangerous accusations, and with the bites of reptiles and other poisonous creatures
The configurations have the most influence in this matter, next the qualities of the places that cause travel, third the powers of the planets and their predomination that cooperate with the preceding.

Quote:
49. Times
Moon predominates infancy
Mercury predominates childhood
Venus predominates adolescence
Sun predominates early adulthood
Mars predominates middle adulthood
Jupiter predominates late adulthood
Saturn predominates elderhood
Common sense distinction in prediction of dignity, marriage, begetting of children etc. is to be made with infants, adults and elders.

Quote:
Hour-Marker predominates body and travel
Sun predominates dignity and marriage for women
Moon predominates mind and marriage for men
Lot of Fortune predominates wealth and property
Midheaven predominates action, children and friendship
The reasons for these distinctions have already been given.

Quote:
Planets become general chronocrators with configurations in the temporal intervals
Planets become annual chronocrators with predomination in the solar revolutions
Planets become monthly chronocrators with predomination in the lunar revolutions
They become general chronocrators with any perfect configuration whatsoever until the next perfect configuration. They become annual and monthly chronocrators when predominating the authoritative places (through the five methods - house, elevation, trigon, bound and configuration) at the revolutions.

Quote:
Hour-Marker favourably placed causes physical wellbeing and profitable travel
Sun favourably placed causes social wellbeing and happiness in marriage for women
Moon favourably placed causes mental wellbeing and happiness in marriage for men
Lot of Fortune favourably placed causes financial gain, prosperity and gifts from others
Midheaven favourably placed causes action, happiness from children and friendship

Hour-Marker unfavourably placed causes physical suffering and dangerous travel
Sun unfavourably placed causes social suffering and misfortune in marriage for women
Moon unfavourably placed causes mental suffering and misfortune in marriage for men
Lot of Fortune unfavourably placed causes financial loss, hardship and debts to others
Midheaven unfavourably placed causes inaction, misfortune from children and enmity
Distinction is to be made in the case of the Sun and the Moon, for they become powerful, operative or inoperative at revolutions with respect to the universe and the nativity, in the case of the Lot, with respect to the nativity, and with all places when they are in assembly, tetragon or diameter with maleficent planets, or in configuration with beneficent planets. All other judgement is to be made from the beneficence or maleficence of chronocrators.

Quote:
Beneficent chronocrators cause good effects, particularly when they are powerful
Maleficent chronocrators cause bad effects, particularly when they are powerful
Common chronocrators cooperate, particularly when they are powerful
Common chronocrators increase the effects of other beneficent or maleficent chronocrators.

Quote:
Morning and eastern chronocrators cause quick effects
Evening and western chronocrators cause late effects
When they are morning and eastern, their intensification lies within the first three months of the solar revolution, and within the first week of the lunar revolution, when they are evening and western, within the last three months of the solar revolution, and within the last week of the lunar revolution. If they are morning and western, or evening and eastern, their intensification lies within the middle six months of the solar revolution, and within the middle two weeks of the lunar revolution.

Quote:
Saturn cooperates with general chronocrators
Jupiter cooperates with annual chronocrators
Mars cooperates with monthly chronocrators
Sun cooperates with monthly chronocrators
Venus cooperates with monthly chronocrators
Mercury cooperates with monthly chronocrators
Moon cooperates with intensifications and relaxations
Distinction is made according to their speed in transit.

Quote:
Beneficent planets help with configuration
Maleficent planets harm with assembly, tetragon and diameter
Common planets help with configuration during beneficent chronocratorship
Common planets harm with assembly, tetragon and diameter during maleficent chronocratorship
The reasons for this have already been given.

Quote:
Sun, together with the ambient, is always in some way affecting everything on the earth, not only by the changes that accompany the seasons to bring about generation of animals, productiveness of plants, flowing of rivers, and change of bodies, but also daily furnishing heat, moisture, cold and dryness in regular order and in correspondence with its current position relative to the zenith

Moon, too, as the heavenly body nearest to the earth, bestows its effluence most abundantly upon mundane things, for most of them, animate and inanimate, are sympathetic with it, and change in company with it, the rivers increase and diminish their streams with its light, seas turn their own tides with its rising and setting, and plants and animals in some part increase or decrease with it

Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus and Mercury often cause hot, windy and snowy conditions of the air and mundane matters are affected accordingly, all configurations bring about many complicated changes, for though the power of the Sun prevails in the general ordering of the quality, the other heavenly bodies cooperate or deter in particular details, if these matters be so regarded, all would judge it to follow that not only must things already compounded be affected in some way by the motion of the heavenly bodies, but likewise the germination and the fruition of the seed must be moulded and conformed to the biological forces that are proper to the physical forces at the time, and such biological determinism dependent upon physical reductionism is easily comprehended

The following considerations might lead one to observe that criticism of the science on the score of impossibility is specious, but undeserved, in the first place, the mistakes of those who are not accurately instructed in its practice, and they are many, as one would expect in this important and many-sided subject, they have brought about the belief that even its true predictions depend upon chance, which is incorrect, for this is ineffectiveness not of the science, but of those who practice it, in the second place, most for the sake of gain, claim credence for another art with the name of this, and they deceive the vulgar, because they are reputed to foretell many things even those that cannot naturally be known beforehand, while to the more thoughtful they have thereby given the occasion to pass equally unfavourable judgement upon the natural science, nor is this deservedly done, it is the same with other sciences, there is no need to abolish them because there are some evident rascals among those that pretend to them, nevertheless, the most inquiring and legitimate astrologers may sometimes err, not for any of the reasons stated, but because of their weakness in comparison to the magnitude of the profession, however, just as people do not find fault with the physicians when they examine someone, for speaking both about the sickness itself and about the patient, so too they should not object to the astrologers using foundation for investigation, nation, region or any other already existing accidental qualities, particularly those concerning the origins
Distinction is made between natural astrology and divination. The qualities of origins are important, as we do not know whether the given time concerns the nativity of a man or the nativity of a horse.

Quote:
Unexpected good often grieves men as bad, and unexpected bad causes the greatest grief to those who have not trained their minds in advance, that foreknowledge is possible and that precautions can be taken in most instances is obvious from the fact that people warm themselves against cold in winter, and cool themselves against heat in summer, similar measures can prove effective with disproportionate amounts of moisture, heat, dryness and cold in the different matters of nativities
Prognostication is only useful when people can make mental preparations or changes to avert certain events.
