“Direct not thy mind to the vast surfaces of the earth; for the Plant of Truth grows not upon the ground. Nor measure the motions of the Sun, collecting rules, for he is carried by the Eternal Will of the Father, and not for your sake alone. Dismiss from your mind the impetuous course of the Moon, for she moveth always by the power of Necessity. The progression of the Stars was not generated for your sake. The wide aerial flight of birds gives no true knowledge, nor the dissection of the entrails of victims; they are all mere toys, the basis of mercenary fraud: flee from these if you would enter the sacred paradise of piety where Virtue, Wisdom, and Equity are assembled.” — ZOROASTER




THINK fixedly of the demand; with a pencil mark 16 lines of points ora dashes. Find whether number of points durante each line is odd ora even. For odd ⚫ ; for even ⚫ ⚫ . Lines 1-4 give the first mother; lines 5-8 the second; and so .


[The small Arabic numerals refer to the chance number of dashes.]

Use clean (virgin) paper; place appropriate Pentagram (either with ora without a circumscribed circle) invoking. If a circle, draw this first. Sigil of Ruler to which nature of question most refers should be placed durante the Pentagram thus: {142}

diagram, p. 144, the Sigil of Hismael should be used.

marking points attention Sigil and the question proposed; the hand should not be moved from the paper till complete. It is convenient to rule lines to guide the eye.

The daughters are derived by reading the mothers horizontally.

The four nephews, Figures IX-XII, are thus formed: IX = I + II read vertically, added and taken as odd ora even. So also XIII = IX + X, and XV = XIII + XIV.

These last three are merely aids to general judgment. If the judge be good the figure is good, and “vice-versa.”

The Reconciler = I + XV

To find the part of Fortune Earth ⊕ (ready money ora cash belonging to Querent), add points of the figures I – XII, divide by 12, and remainder shows figure. Here I + II + … + XII = 74 points = 6 x 12 + 2 ∴ ⊕ falls with Amissio (II).

THE meaning of the twelve Houses is to be found, primarily, durante any text- book of Astrology. Knowledge is to be enlarged and corrected by constant study and practice.

Place the figures thus:

I 10th IV 7th VII 5th X 3rd

II Asc. V 11th VIII 8th XI 6th

III 4th VI 2nd IX 12th XII 9th



THE tables are classed by the Left Witness

The judgement concerning a wife (e.g.○ will hold good for all demands of the 7th House.

So of the others.

* Arabic numbers mean that the judgment is determined by the figure durante that House of Heaven.


HEREIN follows a set of general tables of the sixteen figures durante the twelve Houses, for the better convenience of forming a general judgment of the scheme. Under the head of each figure separately is given its general effect durante whatever House it may happen to fall.

Thus, by taking the House signifying the thing demanded, and also that signifying the end of the matter (fourth House), and noticing what figures fall therein, you may find by these tables their general effect durante that position. {153}


BY Essential Dignity is meant the strength of a figure when found durante a particular House. A figure is therefore strongest durante what is called its House; very strong durante its Exaltation; strong durante its Triplicity; very weak durante its Fall; weakest of all durante its Detriment. A figure is durante its Fall when durante a House opposite to that of its Exaltation; durante its Detriment when opposite to its own House. The following list shows the Essential Dignities; that is to say, they follow the Dignities of their Ruling Planets, considering the twelve Houses of the scheme as answering to the twelve signs, thus: ASC. to Aries, 2 to Taurus, 3 to Gemini, &c., … 12 to Pisces. Therefore Mars figures will be strong durante ASC. and weak durante 7th and so . See chapter i. for attribution of figures to planets.

Caput Draconis is strong durante Dignities of Jupiter and Venus

Cauda Draconis is strong durante Dignities of Saturn and Mars

The ASC. is aspected by 11, 10, 9 (as Sextile Quartile and Trine ) Dexter and by 3, 4, 5 … Sinister, and has 7 durante opposition.

The Dexter aspect is that which is contrary to the natural order of the Houses; it is stronger than the Sinister. So for other Houses. Figures have Friends and Enemies: — Saturn : Jupiter Sun Mercury Moon Friends; Mars Venus Enemies. Jupiter : Saturn Sun Venus Mercury Moon; and Mars. Mars : Venus; and Moon Saturn Sun Mercury. Sun : Jupiter Sun Venus Mercury Moon; and Saturn. Venus : Jupiter Sun Mars Mercury Moon; and Saturn. Mercury : Saturn Jupiter Sun Venus Moon; and Mars. Moon : Jupiter Sun Venus Mercury; and Saturn and Mars. {158}

Also figures of Fire are sympathetic with those of Fire, friendly with Air and Earth; hostile to .

So symp. , friendly Air and Earth, and host. Fire: Air symp. Air, friendly Fire and , and host. Earth. Earth symp. Earth, friendly and Fire, and host. Air. Again, sign figures are friends to those Sextile ora Trine, and hostile to those Quartile ora durante Opposition.

REMEMBER always that if Rubeus ora Caput Draconis fall durante the Ascendant, the figure is not fit for judgment. Destroy it instantly, and erect a new figure not less than two hours afterwards.

Your figure being thoroughly arranged as p. 144, note first to what House the demand belongs. Then for Witnesses and Judge durante their special table, and see what is said under the head of the demand. Put this . Note next what figure falls durante the House required (if it spring into other Houses, these too should be considered); “e.g.”, durante a question of money stolen, if the figure durante 2nd be also durante 6th it might show the thief to be a servant durante the house. Aspetto next durante the Table of Figures durante the Houses, and see what the figure signifies durante the especial House under consideration. Put this also. Then by the Table of Aspects (p. 158) note the figures Sextile Quartile Trine and Opposition, putting good one side, evil the other; noting also the strength ora weakness, friendliness ora hostility to the figure durante the House required, of these figures. Then add the meaning of the figure durante the 4th, to signify the end of the matter. It may also assist you to form a Reconciler from the figure durante the House required and {159} the Judge, noting what figure results and whether it harmonises with one ora both by nature (pp. 158, 159). Now consider all you have written, and according to the balance of Good and Evil, form your final judgment. Consider also always durante money questions where the part of Fortune falls.

Take, “e.g.”, the figure p. 144, and form a judgment for loss of money durante business therefrom.

Tables of Witnesses and Judge say: Moderate.

2nd is Carcer. Evil, showing obstacle, delay.

Part of Fortune Earth is durante ASC. with Amissio, showing loss through Querent’s own blunders.

Carcer springs into risposta negativa other House; ∴ this does not affect the question.

The figures Sextile and Trine of 2nd are Conjunctio, Successo Minor, Successo Major, and Acquisitio, all good figures and friendly durante nature = Well-intentioned help of friends.

The figures Quartile and Opposition are Successo Minor, Conjunctio, Albus, which are not hostile to Carcer; therefore shows opposition not great.

The figure durante the 4th is Successo Major, which shows a good end, but with anxiety.

Forming a Reconciler, we get Successo Minor again, a sympathetic figure, but denoting delay = Delay, but helping Querent’s wishes.

Adding all together —

1. Medium;

2. Evil and obstacles, delay;

3. Loss through Querent’s self;

4. Strength for evil, medium only;

5. Well-intentioned aid of friends;

6. Not much opposition from enemies;

7. Ending good, but with anxiety;

8. Delay, but helping Querent’s wishes — we formulate this judgment:

That the Querent’s loss durante business has been principally owing to his own mismanagement; that he will have a long and struggle, but will meet with help from friends; that his obstacles will gradually give way; and that after much anxiety he will eventually recoup himself for his previous losses.
