First, Lilly's words on this horary chart.
My comments on this chart:
The most important thing in this chart is to notice that all the relevant aspects related to the husband's significators are SEPARATING. There are really NO APPLYING relevant aspects whatsoever in this chart, suggesting that the husband's release has already occurred.
The husband is represented by Jupiter, in its exaltation sign (Cancer) a very good position similar to that of an honored guest. The husband is shown to be coming home (to the woman) by Jupiter retrograde in the 1st house, going towards the Ascendant. Jupiter's fortunate separating aspect - a trine with the Sun - represents the meeting with the commander who freed him. The orb of this aspect - less than a 1 degree - converted in time indicates less than a 1 day from this meeting.
According to the modern principles, the Moon is void of course, as she has to cross the border to next sign in order to complete the sextile with Saturn. The Moon is void of course (no further evolution of the situation) in Aquarius (the sign of freedom), suggesting that the husband has already been freed.
