It has been established by scientific observation that there are only Nine Planets in our Earth's Solar System that relate to life in this world. It has also been demonstrated by scientists that an exactly similar Solar System is repeated in the molecules revolving round all atoms in nature.

In the same way there are only Nine Number by which all calculations on this earth are made. Beyond the numbers of I to 9 the rest are repetitions, a 10 being simply as I with a zero, an II is I plus 1, a 2; 12 is 1 plus 2, a 3; and so on. Every number no matter how large, can be reduced to a single figure by what is called natural addition adding from left to right. The final single digit that remains is called the spirit or soul number of the previous numbers added together.

It therefore follows that all Birth dates come into the 1-9 scale and respond to the numbers given to the Nine Planets of our Solar System. A person born on the 10th, 19th or 28th of a month is as equally a Number One individual, as if they had been born on the single I. Their characteristics very according to the position of their month in the



The system, I am going to explain later on is not only based on, what we could say the rules of ordinary Astrology. For making a map and casting a Horoscope from the exact hour and if possible, details of birth, is purely a mathematical calculation which requires considerable training.

After doing this, the interpretation part is left, without which even the most accurately prepared birth chart will remain to many students a closed one.

Though no one could dispute the value or the accuracy of interpretation that can be made by a good Astrologer, provided he. or she be given the moment of birth accurately. The prediction made on accurate information can give not only a truthful description of character, but also make reliable predictions to the future events of a life as sure from the planetary position in a Natal or Birth chart.

I have seen, both in my own work and of others, too many examples of the accuracy of predictions to disparage for one moment what can be done by those students of Astrology who really implicitly on mathematical calculations to find the exact moment of transits, the eclipses of the Sun and Moon, trines, their squares, oppositions, conjunctions, sextiles, etc., of the various planets in bearing on human destiny.

In writing this book, the object or goal I have kept before my mind is to interest and educate the masses, more than the smaller circle of individuals who have already devoted their time to the Study of Astrology.

To the latter class I hope I may be privileged in perhaps presenting some old-truths in a new light and so increasing and stimulating their interest in what must ever remain the most absorbing study of all studies. To the wider public, however, those who know little or nothing of what Astrology teaches; it will be the crowning object of my life, if I can succeed in placing the facts and truths of the following more simple form of this study in such a way before them that they will continue where I have left off.

It will be my effort all through these pages, to write as clearly and simply as possible, keeping before my mind that the teacher has at one time been the pupil, and that the pupil of today may be the Teacher of tomorrow.

From the innumerable letters I have received, I have learned that the greater mass of people desire to have put before them as much information as possible on the influence of the Zodiac on human life, its effect on character, its causation of difficulties between men and women, with the other hundred and one tendencies it calls into being.

This part of Astrology contains in itself so much of what is true—so much of what each marvellous, that it is well fitted to stand out alone among the mysteries of creation— proclaiming the incalculable wonders of Divine Design. It may be, it is true, only one page in the volume of Astrological Wisdom, but it is one of such importance, that it is the foundation stone of Astrology, in whatever form it may be regarded.

As many of my readers may know little or nothing of the history of the Study that it is my privilege to write about in these pages, I think it will be only fair to them if I give in as brief a form as possible, some idea of its antiquity and some facts concerning those whose names have been associated with its history.

Astrology, or the study of the Sun, Moon and Planets, is without doubt the oldest science known to mankind. The most ancient known works on the subject are the tablets of Sargon I of Agadi, who lived 3,800 years before Christ.

Tradition teaches us that Seth, the third son of Adam, was so well versed in Astrology that, foreseeing the Flood by its means, he caused two pillars to be erected in Palestine, on which he carved the signs of the Zodiac and other Astrological information, so that this knowledge might not be destroyed when the Deluge swept over the then known earth. This tradition is confirmed by Josephus, who writing about 70 A.D. relates that in his own time he saw one of the pillars of Seth still standing in the land of Syria. In the third chapter of the first book of Josephus, the famous Habrew historian writes: Man lived so long before the Flood that he learned the arts and sciences, especially Astrology. And he states that Abraham, when he sojourned in Egypt taught the Egyptians the Knowledge of Astrology.

The great English Astronomer, Sir Isaac Newton, writing out the origin of Astrology, says: The Egyptians determined the length of the solar year and fixed the solstices in the reigns of Ammon and Memnon, and the King of Sais, by the assistance of a priest of Egypt, created the science of Astrology, grounding it on the aspects of the Planets.

According to Oriental records, the birth of Astrology is co-existent with the creation of mankind. They state that Nacrawonsch, the son of Misraim, excelled in Astrology: he commenced the first dynasty of his race who were all skilled in the mystic arts. The most celebrated of the Misraimian Princes was Naerasch, who represented in figures and images, the twelve signs of the Zodiac.

Pharaoh, the last Prince of his dynasty, endeavoured to destroy Noah, believing that by so doing, he would prevent the Deluge, but he was, himself with his whole family, swept away by the Flood.

History tells us that Efilimoun alone, the chief Astrologer of the day, foreseeing the desolation that was coming, acknowledged the truth of the warning preached by Noah, and was admitted into the Ark with all his family.   

Forming an alliance with Noah and his descendants, he became the ancestor of twenty-six kings of the second dynasty of Egypt and built the city of Memphis. Misraim, his son, was the depository of all the magical and astrological secrets of the first ages of the world. It is believed by many that he was the architect and builder of the Great pyramid— one astronomical wonder of all time.

History further- tells us, that when Alexander the First over-came Darius III, that Callisthenes presented to the conqueror a record of the astronomical works of the Babylonians which extended over a period of about 1,900 years, dating from the year 2230 B.C. These records gave information as to the rising and setting of the planets in relation to the position of the Sun, new Moons, full Moons and eclipses, these clearly recorded, together with other information, all indicate that those ancient students of the heavens had a thorough knowledge of the motions and positions of the planets.

The mystery of the Great Pyramid of Egypt, whose builder was probably Misraim as mentioned previously, is conceded in recent years to have been erected for some astrological purpose. Isaiah states in Chapter XIX, Verse 19: In that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord. This prophecy has been fulfilled in the last hundred years* by the discovery that the Great Pyramid was purposely erected on the 30th degree of latitude, which exactly divides upper and lower Egypt. This division is now considered the official one; although it was not divulged in the age when the Great Pyramid was being built but was perhaps known and purposely chosen by its architect.

The four sides of the base if added together, make exactly 36,524 inches, which is the number of days in every hundred tropical years. Or, if written as the figure 365.24, it indicates as closely as possible the number of days in a solar year namely 365.24. The Great

Pyramid is an example of the most perfect orientation of any known building in the world.

Abraham, although called The father of the Jewish race was a Chaldean by birth. The Bible tells us he came from the City of Ur of the Chaldees, where he doubtless learned the arts of Astrology for which the City of Ur was more famous in its day, than Babylon, Ninevah or the other great place of antiquity.

In Genesis, Chapter I, Verse 16, one may read And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars (planets) also.

Returning to the pages of history, we find in old annals of Persia (hat Astrology was practised and encouraged by some of the greatest rulers in that kingdom. Zoroaster took up the study himself and became renowned in its practice. The Persian philosopher, Al Hakim, or the Wise, the supposed brother of King Gushtasp, as chief Minister of State, directed its affairs by the aid of Astrology. Ancient Universal History mentions that; some treatises under his name are still current in the East. He was the author of a book called Judicia Gjamaspis, in which is contained his judgment on the conjunctions of the planets. In this work he foretold that a great Teacher, a Christ, would be born in Palestine, that Mahommed would appear after him and that the Magian religion would be abolished.

In China, astral science was firmly established in the most far off ages. In some instances even Kings were chosen on account of their astrological knowledge, as in the case of the Emperor Chueni in 2513 B.C.

Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, declared that: The man who is ignorant of the science of Astrology deserves to be called a fool, rather than a physician.

Among the celebrated men of ancient Rome who were avowed believers in the study, one can cite Virgil Cicero, Horace and the great friend of Cicero, Figulus.

Suetonius states that he foretold at the birth of Octavius. That he would be Lord of the world having taken the hour of his birth. Strabo, the Historian, mentions that in his day astrologers were also called Chaldaei or Babylonii because they came originally from Chaldean or Babylonia.

In the year 815 A.D. the works of Ptolemy on Astrology were ordered to be translated into Arabic by the sixth Calif Ma-moon-orrasheed, a man profoundly versed in literature and science.

In Europe in the 13th century , Ptolemy's works were first translated from Arabic into Latin by order of the Emperor frederick II. Alphonso, King of Castile, ordered a version to be made in Spanish. In 1538 the full text of Ptolemy's works was published at Basle.

After the decline of the Roman Empire, an Italian monk named Placidus de Titus published his Celestial Philosophy, which contained the Horoscopes of thirty eminent men in Europe to prove the truth of Ptolemy's work on Astrology.

Coming down to more recent years, many well-known personages were devout believers in Astrology, Queen Elizabeth supported my good and wise Doctor John Dee out of her own private purse. The great Bacon and Kepler were professed Astrologers, so also was Sir Isaac Newton and Flamsteed. This distinguished man, the first Astronomer Royal of England, did not consider it derogatory to his dignity to erect a horoscope in order to be sure of a propitious time for laying the foundation stone of Greenwich Observatory.

Charles the First learned the principles of Astrology from Sir Elias Ashmole, the founder of the famous Ashmolean Library at Oxford.

Queen Anne brought over from Holland and kept at her Court, Van Galgebrok, who accurately predicted her death to the month and the year.

Dr. John Butler, the Rector of Litchborough, first set himself out to preach against Astrology, but in investigating it for this purpose he was not only converted but became one of its strongest champions.

In 1644 Willian Lilly published a paper setting forth predictions made by his study of the heavens. In 1647 he was consulted by King Charles 1 as to a safe place to conceal his royal person. The King consulted him again in 1648, but on each occasion neglected to take Lilly's advice, but as Lilly wrote: In this year the Council of State gave me money, fifty pounds and a pension of one hundred pounds per annum, which for two years I received, but no more.*

In 1651 he predicted the Plague and Fire of London for the year 1666. A few weeks after this terrible occurrence he was summoned to attend before a Committee of the House of Commons, "to appear on the 25th October, 1666 at two of the clock in the afternoon, in the

Speaker's chamber, to answer such questions as shall be then and there asked him."

The questions were, if he could throw light on the cause of the late fire, if his science denoted if it had happened by evil design or by accident? Lilly replied that he could not give the Committee the least satisfaction. He concluded that it was done by the finger of God only; but what instruments he used thereunto I am ignorant. He adds: The Committee seemed well pleased with what I spoke and dismissed me with great civility.

It was, however, conceded by everyone that it had been a most remarkable prediction which increased enormously the respect for Astrology.

Lilly died on the 9th of June, 1681. He was buried in the chancel of Walton Church by his friend and co-Astrologer, Sir Elias Ashmole.

It was well known that Napoleon, when an unknown Petit corporal, climbed up to the attic of the monk, Pierre le Clerc, and had his astounding future mapped out before him. It is also on record that a few days before the famous coup d'etat that made him First Consul, he again visited the monk and learned from him what would be the most favourable day for the attempt on which so much depended.

It is to the great Napoleon's credit that he never forgot what he owed to the advice he had received. A few short weeks after he ascended the throne as Emperor, he had the old monk sought out and rewarded him with a substantial pension for life and a comfortable home within the Palace grounds at Versailles.

The tragedy of it all was that five days before Waterloo, the old monk, now an aged and tottering man, set out to find Napoleon and place in m hands a Horoscope showing the fateful days lying ahead. He actually reached Napoleon's Headquarters the night before the decisive battle of Waterloo. One can only speculate what might have been ... and yet what could not be. Repulsed and buffeted by rough sentinels on every side, the old man had no chance to deliver his message. Days after the retreat his dead body was found in a ditch, his hands even in death still grasping the fateful Horoscope, some torn pages of which are preserved among the archives of Paris.

In my own case I have been fortunate enough in having many of my forecasts or predictions placed on record long in advance of their fulfilment. Many hundreds of letters are on file with statements that such and such events foretold by me had taken place, some to the exact year, some to the exact month. I only relate these facts as most humbly bearing evidence of what can be achieved by conscientious study of what may be called the predictive arts.

And now, we come to that question that sooner or later must be uppermost in all men's thoughts ... is there such a thing as Fate? A Destiny that shapes our ends, rough hew them how we may.

This question has occupied the minds of philosophers and thinkers for ages and will continue to do so for aeons of ages to come.

From my experience I can only give the following suggestion: As order and design are exhibited from the greatest Sun or planet to the smallest atom, so nations and mankind collectively as such, obey order and design, fulfill their destiny and pass away.

But Man, individually was created in the image and likeness of God, Man, therefore, being a likeness of the God of knowledge for only such a God could create ... has within himself,

the power to become a god in whatever sphere or world he is born into.

The desire for knowledge is the evidence of Soul or Spirit,—it is the dividing line, separating Mankind from the animal. By Knowledge Man alone becomes free—free from the Fate that ignorance would condemn him to bear.

I will give an illustration. Suppose one knew that a heavy stone was at that moment falling from the roof, towards one's head. As a sensible person, one would jump aside and be saved—but the stone would continue to fall. In other words, the law or cause that might have killed the man is here represented—he escaped only because he was protected by


Now suppose by means of a study of Astrology that one found it was indicated that one's health would be seriously affected at a certain age, as an equally sensible person one would take the warning and escape the threatened break, or at least minimize the consequences.

To those who find it difficult to believe that there are certain studies that can and do throw light ion the future, I can only advise that they should be sufficiently broadminded to spend some little time in the investigation of such studies—believing as I do that Knowledge gained in this way is not only useful in a material sense, but may be the means of creating a faith in things unseen and a realization of the divine design that has so far evolved Man, that his greatest desire is, for Knowledge. In the following pages I have set out, not only the basic meaning of each month as handed down to mankind by the observations of Astrologers from far distant ages to the present day, but also the meaning ascribed to each day of the year from the influence of the planets according to Chaldean Numerology. These indications I have verified by my own long experience, together with the climacteric years in each person's life as set out in these pages.

As far as I know, this is the first time that these combinations have ever been given to the world in any attempt to make what may be called Zodiacal Astrology of assistance to the vast mass of humanity who have not the time or the inclination to go into mathematical calculations that would be necessary in working out any other Astrological system.


1                                                               JANUARY

The month of January comes under the Zodiacal Sign of Capricorn. The cusp of this Sign commences on or about December 21st. The cups lasts for seven days, consequently the full influence of this Sign comes into power about the 28th of December and lasts until the 21st of January, when another seven days cusp begins under the influence of the next incoming Sign-Aquarius, Third House of the Triplicity of Air.

Capricorn is the Third House of the Earth Triplicity. Its Planetary Ruler is Saturn (Positive).

It is also called the House of Saturn.

A nature ambitious, militant, energetic and persevering. You are capable of enormous efforts towards the attainment of a desired object. The planet Saturn, which owing to this month you symbolize, is the embodiment of all that is cautious and discreet. You will never take any important step without profound deliberation and unless you are absolutely certain of the result. There is no speculative element in Saturn. You are skeptical, analytical, somewhat suspicious, slow to accept new theories, but broad-minded and open to conviction. The mental force is strong, philosophical and scientific in character; you are a deep thinker and a great reasoner. In religion the testimony is inclined to be fanatical in its earnestness, or the mind may swing to the opposite pole and believe in nothing. Above all things, you worship intellect, and can forgive almost anything of your friends if they are endowed with unusual intelligence or talent .

You are exceedingly quick in your intuitions of people and things, but are inclined to be too easily discouraged in your plans, and fall into a despondent state at the first rebuff or disappointment. Your views on love, duty and social economics will be always unique, and on this account you will often be regarded as odd and eccentric by those around you. Being high-minded and. independent, you must lead in whatever you undertake or you will lose interest in your work. You abhor restraint of any kind and revolt against anything of an obligatory nature, though in strange contradiction you show profound respect for tradition and authority. Life to you is a very serious but involved problem, and you will be inclined to revel in its most pessimistic phases.

Constant work and industry becomes with you a kind of mania, but by plodding and quietly working with a given end in view, you will gain much more than by excitement or hurry. You are likely to rise through your own personal efforts and power of individuality far above the sphere of your birth. Your character is essentially positive, but you need to cultivate cheerfulness, as there is likely to be a strong tendency to hypochondria and melancholia.

As a general rule you will be much misunderstood by others. You will not easily mix with people; you will have few close friends, but at heart feel very much alone.

You will make many enemies by nearly always espousing the unpopular cause or the underdog in any dispute. 

You would do best by aiming at some form of public life, such as in municipal affairs or in connection with politics, government life, or positions of responsibility and trust.


The Saturnian influence bearing upon this question for you born in January indicates a vigorous constitution and good physical stamina. At the same time, there is a strong tendency to depression and despondency which, if not acted against, will induce bilious attacks, trouble with the gall bladder, ulcers in the stomach, derangements of the digestive organs, and stoppages of the intestines. You should cultivate optimism and cheerful society in order to keep in good health. Cold will seriously affect you, and unless you are careful you will be likely to suffer from asthma, bronchial catarrh and such like ailments. High dry climates will suit you better than living in low altitudes.

Study well your diet and keep up the circulation by adequate exercise, also avoid draughts, damp and cold winds. Plenty of change is absolutely essential for you, but it should never be a change to solitude. If your outlook should ever become limited or cramped, and conditions show signs of giving way, your innate gloom may turn to hypochondria unless you exert very force in your nature to cultivate the spirit of cheerfulness.

You will greatly desire to make a home for yourself in the country, and if possible, on some height on the side of a mountain or on some hilly place. You should never allow yourself to live in low-lying, wet or damp places, as you will have very decided tendency to develop rheumatism, gout, pains and swellings in the feet. You are also likely to meet more accidents to the ankles, feet and legs; than is the lot of most people.


The dominate influence of Saturn ruling your birth-month is not a favourable significator as it causes delays, hindrances and limitations, in regard to financial advancement, at least

in the early part of the life.

Advancement, gain and success in money is promised by industry, slow plodding perseverance and by carefulness, thrift and economy. In fact, you are more likely to acquire wealth through your own personal efforts than by any dint of good fortune. Advantageous investments for you would be in land or house property, the building up of factories dealing especially in coal, lead or iron products, machinery for transport work or agriculture, the developing of farming enterprises and all things solid and concrete.

You will experience much difficulty in obtaining money that should be yours by right and you should never lend without security, or you would be sure to lose. You should always see that the concerns in which you invest your money are established on solid foundations as these will be more fortunate to you than things of the more purely speculative order.

Marriage, Unions, Partnership, etc

You will find your most harmonious relationship in persons born in your own Sign

(Capricorn) Third House of Earth, December 21st to January 21st. In Taurus, April 20th to May 20th, First House of Earth; or Virgo, August 21st to September 20th, Second House of Earth, or Virgo, August 21st to September 20th, Second House of Earth, and in the seven days of the cusp at the beginning and ending of each of these periods; also persons born in the exact opposite part of the year to your own, in this case from about the 27th of July to September 27th.

PERSONS BORN ON 1st, 10th, 19th, 28th of JANUARY i.e. Number 1

If you were born on any of the above dates, following the rules of Astrology and my system based on Chaldean Numerology, you come under the vibrations of the Sun, Uranus and Saturn, in the Zodiacal Sign of Capricorn, House of Saturn (Positive) Third House of the Triplicity of Earth.

The foundation of your character and disposition is described in previous pages for persons born in January, but the Sun and Uranus will give you a marked individuality of your own. You will be very independent in your views, full of originality and creative in your desires. Success, unless brought about by very exceptional circumstances, is likely to be delayed until your latte years, but you have every promise that it will come in the end.

At heart you will be very thoughtful and serious-minded, and extremely thorough-going in everything you undertake.

You will be level-headed and practical and not easily swayed or influence by other persons' views.

You will have a set purpose at the back of all your plans, never giving in or allowing yourself to be discouraged by difficulties.

Although having a very generous nature, you will quickly resent any attempt to be imposed upon and will carry out your own charities in your own way


You will be decidedly ambitious and will be likely to rise beyond your fellows and other members of your family.

Many obstacles may beset your path, but by your patience and determination you will overcome all difficulties.


You will be frugal and cautious in financial matters, investing your money well in business or industries that promise a good return. You will make the most out of any opportunities that present themselves and will endeavour to make the best out of any situation you may find yourself placed in.

You will have a strong magnetic influence over others, especially in any life that may bring you before the public. At the same time you may expect to meet much scandal and. calumny at different times in your career.


If born on any one of these dates, such as the 1st, 10th, 19th or 28th of January, you will have a great amount of vitality, provided you never indulge in drugs or intoxicants of any kind.

You will be inclined at times to suffer from severe chills, rheumatism and arthritis. To avoid this you should live in high, 'dry, climates as much as possible.

Your most important numbers are the one (which represents the Sun) and the four (which represents Uranus). You should make every effort to carry out everything important for yourself on dates that make these numbers, such as the 1st, 4th, 13th, 19th, 22nd, 28th and 31st of any month.

To increase your magnetic vibrations and so make yourself more fortunate, you should wear or at least have in some part of your clothing, the colours of the Sun and Uranus, which are:

The Sun: All shades of gold or yellow, or bronze to golden brown. Uranus: All shades of sapphire blue, greys or pastel colours. Your luckly jewels are diamonds, sapphires and amber.

The most important or climacteric years in your life are the 10ih, 19th, 28th, 37th, 46th, 55th, 64th, 73rd and the 4th, 13th, 22nd, 31st, 40th, 49th, 58th, 67th and 76th.

You will find a strong magnetic attraction to persons born on dates making a one or a four in any month of the year, such as the 1st, 4th, 10th, 13th, 19th, 22nd 28th and 31st.
