ecause Astronomy is so transcendent and subtil an Art in itself, that therein a man ought to have respect unto so many things before he can attaine to true judgment thereby, because the eye of the understanding will not pierce unto the half thereof, and few Doctors of our later time have been found so experienced therein that they know suﬃciently how to judge thereby; Therefore I have composed this work, which I wilt have to be named, Astronomical Geomancy; wherein, I will suﬃciently teach how to judge with less labour and study. For in this present science it is not requisite to behold neither the Ascendant, nor the hour in a Table, as it is in Astrology. It is expedient therefore, to make four unequal lines, by the points casually set down; and to joyne together those points; and out of the points which are not joyned together, which do remain in the heads of the lines, (as it is done in Geomancie) extract one ﬁgure; and the signe of the Zodiack that answereth to that ﬁgure, put for the Ascendent, for the words sake. If Acquisitio arise from the heads of those four Lines, let Aries be placed in the Ascendent; if Laetitia, or the lesser Fortune put Taurus in the Ascendent; if Puer or Rubeus, place Gemini; If Albus, Cancer; if Via, Leo; if Conjunctio or the Dragons Head, Virgo; if Puella, Libra; if Amissio or Tristitia, Scorpio; if the Dragons Tail, Sagittary; if Populus, Capricorn; if Fortuna major, Aquary; if Carcer, then put Pisces for the Ascendent. Afterwards in the second House, let that signe be placed which immediately succeeds the other. In the third House the third Signe, and so place the rest in order until you come unto the end of the Signes; and make one square ﬁgure divided into twelve equal parts, and therein place the Signes in order, as it is in Astrology, and as you may ﬁnde them in this ﬁgure: neither are we here to regard the * witnesses, or * Judge, or any other thing, which belongs to Geomancie; but onely the sixteen Figures, that by them we may have the twelve Signes, to which they agree; and observe the maner of the Figure as it is here placed. Afterwards it is requisite to make four Lines by course for every Planet, by points casually pricked down; and likewise for the Dragons Head, as you have done for the Ascendent, and divide those points by twelve; and that which remaineth above twelve, or the twelfth itself, if a greater number doth not remain, retaine, and the Planet for which the projection was made, place in that House of which the superabounding number shall be; that is, if there remain twelve, let the Planet be placed in the twelfth House; if ten, in the tenth House; if one, in the ﬁrst House; if two, in the second House; and so of the rest. And you ought alwayes to begin from the Sun, and afterwards from the Moon, then from Venus and Mercury, and from Saturn, Jupiter and Mars, and the Dragons Head and Dragons Tail; but

If you desire to know whether rumours be true or false. and if both good and evil Planets be there. or joyned with the Lord of the Ascen- 6 . then they are true. then it is false. but if you ﬁnde the Sun. both the mother and child shall die. it will be a woman-child. and so you shall consider also of the Moon. be in the ﬁfth. and the tenth House fallen: the mother shall die. then it will be a male-childe. or a woman-child. and if the Dragons Tail be there. and if a mean Signe shall be ascending. or if the Lord of the ﬁfth shall be in them Houses. if in the second. but if Leo and Virgo be there. they will die. and Mars in that Signe. neither will she have any children: and if there be both good and evil Planets in the said places. but if you ﬁnde none of them. she that is with child hath twins in her wombe. And if you would know whether the child be legitimate or adulterate. one shall live. which if he be Masculine and in a Masculine Signe. but the infant shall not escape. and if many Planets be in feminine Signes. but they will not live. in the ﬁrst year. it is legitimate. is testiﬁes the truth. it is a male-childe. she is with child. and another die. she neither is with childe. or the ﬁfth. which will live. within how many years she shall have children. Whether the party with child shall miscarry. or not. if he be in the ﬁrst. the mother shall die. it is legitimate: and if the Lord of the ﬁrst. and if there be one good and another evil. then they are Partly true and Partly false. Mars or the Dragons Tail. neither shall she ever have any children. but evil Planets in the same places. Consider also if more of the Planets be in Masculine Signes. And if you would know. if Saturn. or in a Masculine quarter of the Figure. look where you ﬁnde the Lord of the ﬁfth. or with the Lord of the ﬁfth. she may have children.

If you would know whether a woman shall bring forth a man-child. then it is a female childe. in the Ascendent. and if the Dragons Tail be so in the ﬁrst. in the second year. And if mean Signes be in the Ascendent. because if it be so it is adulterate. and if there be a good Signe with the Planet. or if good Planets be in the ﬁrst. for in that year she shall have issue. the news is false: but if the Moon be in the ﬁrst in a feminine signe. its possible they will both die. and if an evil Planet.

that in a Question concerning war and kingdom. it is said that there is more power and eﬃcacie. look if the Lords of the ﬁrst and the seventh be friends and agreeing. see the Lord of the Ascendent. or if they be evil. because he shall overcome. or Saturn be in the ﬁrst. and he that is exalted shall gain. nevertheless he may be grievously wounded. or joyned with the better Planets he shall be the greater gainer. let him not go. that is. but not death. and the Planet which is in the strong House do not fall. nor hath not an evil Planet with him. shall overcome. And if an evil Planet be with the Lord of the ﬁrst. and his Lord signiﬁes the dam of the Querent: and the eighth House and his Lord signiﬁes the gain of his fellow. and they shall proﬁt. IF he goeth he shall suﬀer great damage. and if the Planet be evil from them both. behold the Lords of the ﬁrst and the seventh. or his Lord that shall be found in the better place. then they will love one to another. if one of them be strong. with good Planets. he will return safe. they shall both gain. but in all other Questions the contrary. and see which of them is joyned with an evil Planet. which if they be in Angles. likewise he whose signiﬁcator is in a mean House. and the other weak. If you would be informed concerning any one being that is gone to any ﬁght. let him not go. And if the Lord of the seventh be with a good Planet. wives and concubines. and the society will not proﬁt. but if the Planets be in discord. And if Saturn be in the ﬁrst. or with the Lord of the ﬁrst he 10 . and if both evil. he shall have some impediment in the way. if he be good. or fortitude in the exaltation of a Planet. And note. because some impediment will happen unto him by some man that he will meet. he whose signiﬁcator is good. he whose Planet is in the strong House. or with the Lord of the ﬁrst. because sometimes he shall hope to conquer. or his part: and if the be both good. and if he which is weak be not in his own House. or with the Lord of the ﬁrst. or with the Lord of the ﬁrst he will be wounded with wood or with a stone. And if there be an evil Planet with the Lord of the ﬁrst.

The second House. then they will not. the victor shall kill the conquered. because the Sun burneth him. and in which House is the better Planet. or if there be evil Planets in the ﬁrst.companions. shall lose. there will be strife between them. And if you would know if two fellows shall love one another. nor with a good Planet. which if they be concordant amongst themselves. see the second and his Lord. see the ﬁrst and his Lord. in any part of the Question. then in his House.
the Querent shall be overcome. see the seventh and the ﬁrst. or the Lord of the second in the seventh. unto the end of the House which is the middle of the Question. And if the Sun be with the Lord of the seventh. for the place to which thou wouldest go. and joyned to evil Planets. and the gain which thou gettest there. and the seventh. or with the Lord of the seventh. and their Lords. So that if there be good Planets in the ﬁrst and evil in the seventh. if thou desirest to know which of them is most expedient for thee to undertake. then it is not good for thee to remove thy self. the parties shall be paciﬁed after the War. for those places to which thou wouldest go. the place wherein thou art. it is better for thee to go from the place where thou art. do not remove: and if the Planet which she is joyned to. and joyned to good and fortunate Planets. and an evil Planet in the ﬁrst. and their Lords: for the ﬁrst House and his Lord signiﬁes the Querent. and evil from the part of the seventh. And if the Lord of the Ascendent and the Moon be separated from the Fortunes.
